This month, I was promoted to Head of Engineering, US at work. I’m excited about all the things I’m going to learn and everything this team is going to accomplish.
I had a great time at LibertyJS; there were a lot of great talks, and I made some new friends, as well as catching up with some folks I hadn’t seen in a while. I had honestly forgotten how fun conferences are! I’m also at the makebetter.email email interoperability summit this week, which will extend a few more days into November — this has already been valuable in a few ways, and I’m looking forward to the next steps that come out of this.
So clearly all of that has been taking up most of my energy this month!
I do have one code thing to share: I wrote a script to sync Mastodon notifications to Slack and put it on Github. You can find it here: https://github.com/tjwds/mastodon-to-slack
Also another short playlist!
I finished seven films this month:
- The Big Short ★★★★★
- Prospect ★★½☆☆
- The Martian (rewatch) ★★★★★
- Style Wars ★★★★☆
- Death on the Nile ★★★☆☆
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ★★☆☆☆
- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies ★★½☆☆
I also made a new Letterboxd list: Movies I feel asleep in the middle of but kept waking up and catching a scene or two so I don’t really feel like I watched it but I don’t really want to re-watch it either. I earned one entry on this list this month: Sonic the Hedgehog.
I love Letterboxd. You should follow me there!
This month, I finished Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb. It was a lot of exposition, but I got pretty wrapped up in the story, and immediately picked up the next book in the series.
This month, failbetter published:
- I typed 705,294 keys and clicked 87,482 times.
- I listened to 709 songs.
