This is your regularly scheduled reminder to update your CV - you don't need to be looking for a job, and it can be a great way to remind yourself of the great stuff you're doing - a la brag document.
Whenever I see a profile view on LinkedIn from someone who works at a company I used to work at, I always wonder what it means. Like, are you interested in who was in the
git blame? Did you find something I've done, or heard a story about me and want to know more?
I guess we'll never know 🤷🏽♂️
If you're in #Nottingham and fancy getting up super early on Wednesday, I'm talking at Notts TechFast about dependency-management-data and how you can better understand how much your organisation relies on Open Source and internal dependencies - would be great to see you there!
And for those who are daunted by getting into town at that time (I know I am 😹) there's also a livestream!
If you're able to see this post (on the Fediverse) yay! That means your admin hasn't blocked Bridgy Fed which I use to bridge my website with the Fediverse so I can chat to y'all.
This is likely due to recent discussion around the upcoming BlueSky bridge and opt-out being the default decision.
I don't dispute the freedom or choice to block Bridgy, and am definitely taking some time to think about how I feel about the varying thoughts, but the main thing is that it looks like several admins have blocked Bridgy altogether, resulting in not just the blocking of the upcoming BlueSky bridge (at a separate domain under
brid.gy) but also classes Bridgy as
Tier 0 is a combined blocklist of only the worst actors, and it exists to provide one blocklist to which surely no one can object as a baseline for others. It's the perfect starting list for any new mastodon admin.
So it could be my time interacting with the Fediverse is going to be cut short, and I'll be screaming into the void very much moreso 😅
Well, I'm home after a great couple of days at #StateOfOpenCon #SOOCon24, which has given me lots to think about. There were some great talks, some really interesting hallway track conversations, and nice to meet friends old and new.
First of all a huge thank you to the organisers - there were so many of you behind the scenes doing such great work to make the event a massive success. I've seen the effort that it can take to do a single track conference let alone 8 tracks(!!!) so it's a huge result, and I hope y'all are gonna have some well deserved rest!
I'd like to say in particular a bit thank you for the work that @andypiper has been doing in the lead up to the conference to support the speakers, being warm, super helpful and supportive, as well as seeing them busy over the conference helping ensure everything was going well
And a big thanks to @AmandaBrock for all her excellent work with OpenUK and State of Open Con 🙌
I'll definitely be making my way back next year 👀 And I'll be (re)watching talks as they pop up!
If you were interested in what Sarah Novotny mentioned at #StateOfOpenCon #SOOCon24 about understanding how much Open Source you use, as well as some of the risks of using it, y'all may be very interested to come to my talk about dependency-management-data which aims to give you exactly this, with just Free and Open Source and Open APIs 👀
Today I've been emailed by both Clever Cloud and Heroku around "your account hasn't been used in some time so we're gonna delete it" - coincidence, or is today their "clean up all the old accounts day"?
What's everyones' favourite resources for how to best find which column(s) to index in your database?
Very cool to have received my first payout from Tidelift, from a company using one of the Open Source projects that I maintain 💸 Thanks very much to whoever it was, and looking forward to the income working towards me getting some longer-term financial support to continue maintaining the projects I do 🚀
Fuck me, Leave the World Behind was unsettling, stressful, beautiful and captivating. Definitely recommend a watch!
Something cool newer #git versions are doing - you'll now see
Reapply instead of
Revert Revert ... in commit messages, if you're reverting a revert.
In an older version of Git (i.e. with 2.34.x) you would see:
Revert "Revert "Commit title here""
Revert "Commit title here"
Commit title here
However, in newer versions (i.e. with 2.43.x) you now see:
Reapply "Commit title here"
Revert "Commit title here"
Commit title here
Which makes it a little bit cleaner in your Git log
If you're running dependency-management-data, you'll now have an indication of which of Mitchell Hashimoto's (now unmaintained) libraries are affecting you now that this change has landed in the
-contrib project - thanks Mitchell for the hard work on them, and I'll be sure to keep the list updated as maintainers pick up ownership of other libraries!
Anyone recommend a good graphic designer or artist who'd be up for a (paid) commission to create a logo for an Open Source project of mine?
Weird timing with [this announcement from GitHub] (https://github.blog/changelog/2023-11-22-deprecation-notice-security-advisories-in-private-repositories) as literally this week I was seeing how they worked 🙃
I'm trying to convert rows (produced by a big query that then uses a
GROUP BY advisory_type) that produces data like:
-- the `advisory_type` can be one of multiple values, i.e. SECURITY, DEPRECATED, UNSUPPORTED
repo advisory_type total_advisories
------ ------------- ----------------
jvt.me SECURITY 10
jvt.me DEPRECATED 5
And I'm trying to convert this to:
repo total_security total_deprecated total_unmaintained
------ ------------- ---------------- ----------------
jvt.me 10 5 0
Any clue how I'd go about doing so? Happy to provide more details / some data for you to query too, but been playing around with it on and off and not really having any luck.
I've just found in my notes app that I wanted to write
A plea to SCA vendors but I've not written down what that plea is so now I'm annoyed at past me assuming future me would know 😅
It's been just over a year since I wrote Analysing our dependency trees to determine where we should send Open Source contributions for Hacktoberfest which started off my journey with dependency-management-data and I'm super happy with the path it's taken me 🤓
