@pavlobaron Oh yeah. Already done.@pavlobaron A "real" science. Whatever that is...So glad to see a panel on burnout in tech on the @velocityconf schedule. Props to @courtneynash for putting it together. Burnout is no fun.
Retweeted by Kevin Smith@skeptomai @vvuksan No clue.@jaredrichardson So very painfully true.@vvuksan Already in the works. Completely unacceptable, imo.THIS is why we don't have many women in science or tech. WTF world. WTF. (see prior tweets for context)Daughter said she's interested in mech. eng. during career discussion. In front of group instructor dismissed it as "just tinkering" (2/2)My daughter is attending a science camp for high schoolers this week which has been a pretty positive experience. Until yesterday (1/2)

For anything new, where you don't need backwards compat, do not go anywhere near TLS/OpenSSL. Go straight to NaCl or similar modern libs.

Retweeted by Kevin Smith@jessmartin Same here! Let’s talk in a month ;-)@zeit_geist @darachennis The candle which burns brightest….@jchackert @jaredrichardson I’m passingly familiar. tbh, I’m skeptical of “peaky” team lifecycle as a norm.@jchackert @jaredrichardson I RT’d because I think, as an industry, we tend to overemphasize product to the detriment of ppl & teams.@jchackert @jaredrichardson There’s a balance to be struck. Solely emphasizing product or team trend towards sub-optimality.I stumbled across this blast from the past. http://t.co/RoJrr9jDaE Build teams, not products.
