Tired of people skipping Philly on their book tours, I started an event series called "Pilcrow House." There are already two events in works!
11/29 - Scott Belsky (Adobe) on "The Messy Middle" of starting a new thing.
1/10 - Taylor Lorenz (The Atlantic) on online culture wars, misinformation and memes.
Tix are $25 and under: https://pilcrowhouse.ticketleap.com/
See you there?
oh also #jawnuary should be a thing i dunno what we should do - maybe a giant mariokart meetup or we all join antifa or something but we can't let that hashtag go to waste
Already on another Mastodon instance, but found you guys via #bcphilly. First timer this year, great experience, props to the organizers and sponsors. See you next year!
Noticing a trend among the #bcphilly talks I’ve sampled so far — from installing dark patterns to posting awful tweets, a lot of our friends are being asked to do horrible, horrible things at work. We seem to be spending a lot of time assuring folks “it’s okay to refuse to do that, and here’s a thing that would work much better.”
Admiring the people who brought their kids to @BarCampPhilly. Can't wait to bring our kiddos. #bcphilly
So it turns out that Mob Programming is:
A) A real thing that exists that solves for most of the things I hate about pair programming.
B) I thing I have been accidentally imposing on my dev teams during review sessions as an “assertive product owner.”
Y’all, someone set up a 3D printer that’s making #bcphilly logos. None of us organizers know where it came from. I flipping love this event.
Also! If you wanna encourage other #bcphilly peeps to join the action here, point them to bcphilly.jawns.club to get signed up!
Welcome to the first mastodon based community for Philadelphians who ❤️Philadelphia! Think of this instance as a new neighborhood in Philly that anyone can be a part of, because it's online.
