Howdy! 👋 /
I'm Dave, I'm a Designer & Front-end Developer from Bristol in the U.K.
I design and build apps, create themes, experiment with code and make silly but fun things from time to time

Guys: “Well you know, there were many people working on those algorithms, it’s not only Katie Bouman work but rather a team effort.”

Also guys: “Elon Musk is sending rockets on Mars, he makes electric cars, he invented tunnels, he’s such a genius, I love him.”

Yes, sometimes I also like, reshare content about women in tech because guess what, I'm a human being who happens to be a queer woman working in the tech industry and this affects my work and the work of many of us. There's many accounts only tweeting work stuff, follow them

Trying to share any and all ideas for the next iteration of my site on dribbble, so any feedback you have is appreciated dribbble.com/shots/6342437-Hom
I want it to be fun and concise

I see many amazing women in our industry, super good at HTML, CSS and Accessibility. Yet they don't find a nice and well paid job because they don't know fancy JS frameworks. JS became a big gate keeper. Yet we NEED people good at HTML/CSS. We just don't want to pay them.

Pro tip: be extra nice to retail staff. It’s super busy and then they’ll have to put a load of sale stuff out tomorrow, too.

It’s a horrible time of year to work in retail.

Is there a way to auto-redirect followers from one mastodon account to another? I keep getting follow requests on my dot social account
