I've been a little quiet on here recently, so here's a little update: I have inadvertantly become "a streamer". I'm still not quite comfortable with that term but we'll see if it grows on me. Work is also kinda horrible at the minute so that's a thing as well. Anyway, if you want to watch me sing on stream, I'm iMartynOnTwitch on twitch. #singing #twitch #streamer #amireallythough
"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. ... When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - CS Lewis
@iMartyn It's the dishonesty about goals that grinds at me. The rhetoric is “we want to hire the best people”. But today's recruitment process is deliberately designed to exclude those people from being hired.
If the goal is to recruit the best people: they are busy and already stably employed, with no time or desperation for this stupid make-work test. Instead, the process as designed fits people who have no job now and are willing to submit to unpaid hours of tests from dozens of recruiters.

This industry has zero idea in general how to go about #devops / #sre testing. As a platform engineer / lead, I've been recently asked in a before in-person interview test to : 1. in 2 hours total write a service discovery system with tests and document how I would approach observability in a Microservice environment. And 2. Create from scratch in go using no external sources traceroute. Again should take no more than a few hours. This is not in any way testing the right stuff!
I'd really love to know which "UX" person at Google thought it would be a good idea to change what long press on "." does based on which field you're entering text in. Specifically if you're entering an email and you long press to get the "@", or a URL to get "/", you get three godsdamned TLDs and no symbols. So frustrating. #badux #android #antifeature
