  • Zoë Schiffer on Twitter — NEW: Elon Musk has sent another email to Twitter engineers warning them about code reviews. “All managers are expected to write a meaningful amount of software themselves. Being unable to do so is like a cavalry captain who can’t ride a horse.”
  • FiniteSingularity on Twitter — Pro Tip- dont update XCode via the software update app, but rather manually download the pkg from the Apple developer downloads page. It downloads/installs *much* more quickly.
  • pyenv: Simple Python version management — pyenv lets you easily switch between multiple versions of Python. It's simple, unobtrusive, and follows the UNIX tradition of single-purpose tools that do one thing well.
  • rbenv: Manage your app's Ruby environment — rbenv is a version manager tool for the Ruby programming language on Unix-like systems. It is useful for switching between multiple Ruby versions on the same machine and for ensuring that each project you are working on always runs on the correct Ruby version.
  • nenv: Node Version Management: nenv (based on rbenv) — nenv is a version manager for Node (Node.js / io.js). It is heavily based on rbenv.
  • Guido van Rossum: Python and the Future of Programming — Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python programming language.

Hey Chris and Mike, I’m boosting in to show some .NET love! We’re a small startup so I’m not sure if that makes me a dark matter dev or not? Our frontend is a React+Typescript SPA and the backend is mostly .NET with a little nodejs - all containerised and running on Linux of course! .NET has excellent SDKs for interacting with Azure where we run all of the things. We deploy with Github Actions and develop in Visual Studio, so we’re all-in on the modern Microsoft stack… and love it!

Did the same, installed Calyxos on my Pixel 5 and deleted my Google account years ago, no regrets!

Just finished tuning in Chris, thanks for the recommendation. I'm glad to hear you think Python will have some longevity. Seems like it's the Spanish equivalent of programming; relatively easy to learn and useful in lots of places. I'm curious, do either of you speak another language? And if so is there any overlap between learning coding vs a spoken language? Happy New Year, Kyrin! 🥳

Did i agree with the newly leaked emails? I think i did! Management shouldnt be exempt from stepping in from time to time if necessary to do the job they were asked to lead/Hired to lead, after all, i feel that is all part of being a team. Plus, knowing what your folks do helps you lead more effectively in my opinion. Apologies if this comes off brash! Great show, gentlemen.
