Using Visual Studio Code with WSL at my new job is blowing my mind. :-))

I just wanted to write a quick note to say how impressed I am with Microsoft’s moves toward fostering a more neutral, pragmatic, productive, ergonomic programming environment for people to work with. It’s only been half a day, of course! 😀 …Of my using these tools, but I didn’t know they existed and were so well integrated until today. I’m pretty impressed so far, and relieved. 🙂 It’s nice to see some things going the right way.

The arrogance of software developers

I don’t quite know who to blame here. I know that the people who actually write the code and do the real work are not the same people who make the decisions about how things should be designed and implemented. And that’s probably a bad thing. But anyway! There is a massive lack of quality throughout software development in our culture and unfortunately it seems like we’ve come to accept it as a given. We don’t have to settle for this shit, people! We can expect more from our computers and software!
