Certainty is absurd. Hubris is foolish. Humility is wisdom. Always observe, always learn. A lesson of #kaizen
“We’re a data-driven organization”
No, be a data-informed organization. Well-informed people, not data, should be making your decisions.
sometimes twitter is really good
when you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
last century people fought for a 40-hour work week and a living wage.
how's 24/7 on-call duty treating you, enlightened tech worker?
YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS
Do you think Bill Snyder goes on the field for a #KState
injury and tells the player "I'm almost 80 and had cancer 6 months ago. Get up."
Ha! From @MircoHering

OH: the problem with container startups is that they don't fucking know how to run things in containers
One of these men homered today. twitter.com/MLB/status/902…
Lately my days rotate between
"People are amazing I'm so lucky"
"Trust no one people are awful"
"Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the PCI compliance."

Gio Gonzalez lowered ERA to 2.49 tonight, leapfrogging Chris Sale for 3rd best in MLB. Only Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer ahead of him.

3⃣ more Saturdays till we take the field.
Business intelligence, typically isn't.
There's only one really hard problem to solve in Computer Science. Cache invalidation and off-by-one errors.
junior engineers ship features. senior engineers kill features.
If you think engineering is "just writing code" then you are, unfortunately, still junior and not ready for the hard collaborative problems.
OH: "Containers won't fix your garbage software."
We think awful code is written by awful devs. But in reality, it's written by reasonable devs in awful circumstances.

Top 25 team.
Apple has a cash balance of $261.5 billion. That's enough to buy every single team in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB.
If this gets 1000 retweets we get to road trip to D.C. to see my favorite player @AdamSpankyEaton

Max Scherzer gave up 5 ER in 4 IP in his first MLB start. Glad Twitter was still in its infancy then, lest he have been sentenced to death.
Erick Fedde and Bryce Harper were high school classmates, both are 24. Fedde makes MLB debut today. Harper plays 750th MLB game.
good news: it's sysadmin day.
bad news, you're still a sysadmin.
If a dev shop agrees to a fixed bid project and says they are "agile", they sit on a throne of lies. #agile #scrum #tech
I'm no geologist but this is quite an interesting Rock formation.
Don't succumb to a false sense of security of containers. #Container
