It finally happened: my city has a PyLadies chapter!

I haven't published any content in English yet, but after a tweet of mine about PulseAudio got a good amount of attention, I've finally decided to create a blog to post "Today I learned"-y posts.

seriously, depending on how things go from now on that may have saved me a few hundred bucks in possibly pointless purchases

did y'all know PulseAudio has a noise cancelling module or am I the only person on Earth that's actually surprised and overjoyed

that meme of that guy screaming "let me in! let me in!"

and all while my country is *on fire*

Character development is when you stop having dreams about replying to recruiters and start having some about interviews, eh?

On the final stretch of developing Fortunae, the offline-first personal finance tool. I'm completely exhausted but I feel like this product is actually going somewhere.

apparently people are trying to reclaim national symbols from conservatives starting with putting 🇧🇷 emojis on their names on Twitter and no one can convince me that this isn't either (1) conservatives trying to manipulate the perception of the general public or (2) white people failing to understand we're better off abandoning those symbols altogether, please let them die

tfw you have to buy more things to get rid of things
