A great read about why PHP is still a great choice in 2020, despite the bad press it gets from developers (who likely haven't touched it in years).

This is very interesting to hear just days after a colleague gives a compelling introduction to Kotlin of which one key selling point (to me at least) is reducing boilerplate for Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) that are effectively data-only objects.

That being said, it's still a way off compared to Java 8, and could be nice to try out Kotlin a bit more.

Off to #Tenerife tomorrow with the family for a week's winter sun - hope the weather is a bit nicer than the UK, at least!

#IndieWeb folks using Indigenous for Android (https://indigenous.realize.be/) or at least allowing a Geo URI (geo:51.501476,-0.140634) on their #Micropub endpoint - do you attempt to remap that longitude / latitude ref to a place, or do you currently just render it as-is?

Hey https://twitter.com/pushbullet is there any way to see how many API pushes I've got left from the Web/ when it renews? I got a notification saying I was running out, partly due to https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/01/12/webmention-notifications/

Bookmarked https://mtls.dev/ .

This is a great resource for generating certs for performing Mutual TLS authentication, as well some good sample code for how to set up example client/server apps in several programming languages.

How can we assume that the layperson can say that they knowingly "opt in" to terms of service when they're incomprehensible, some great points in @KrishBhasin's talk at #TechNott tonight about the privacy implications of online advertising
