@roxy Mastodon is nothing but LGBT+ folks, furries, programmers and LGBT+ furry programmers.
having the right tools is important but remember you can be magical and do witch stuff in an adidas tracksuit on the bus crying or lost in a park with no runes or books, cards or crystals. powerful forces can summoned and manifested by a thought or chuckle or appreciation, taking risks or relaxing, failures and frustration. if there is energy/power, it's not going to care about the accoutrements as much as just YOU and all living things.
you are mystical enough as-is.
Whenever I hear "We need more programmers! Make more young people interested in programming! Teach programming at kindergarten!" I always get the urge to ask "What did you do with the old ones you had?"
Where are all those programmers you hired 5-20 years ago? Why is no programmer at your company older than 40? Why do you have *senior* software engineers that are 25 years old? What did you do to all those people?
If you can't take care of your employees, no wonder you never have enough.
Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.
Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.
*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*
1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
