This is a weird request, but does anyone have something for me to encode with FFmpeg? The more complicated the project, the better. I am trying to improve my skills and I learn best with real-world use.

@ocdtrekkie Yeah it’s actually something I want to build something around too. Something a bit like what Github Pages does. I self-host Gitea but it has no support for this. It’s relatively easy to do yourself, but it would be nice if there was an “app” that just did this, and ways to shove shit online easily.

@lyse I found this article last night as I was trying to get to sleep (still not feeling 100%, sinuses still playing up 😢):

Best Practices for Testing in Go - FOSSA

Some good tips here in by a Jessica Black. I think I mostly agree with.

What do you think? 🤔 Got anything else to share along these lines? 🙏

@lyse Thanks bud 🤗

@prologic

a self-hosted static file serving app which does nothing more than just serve up static files with a configured root path

Don’t you mean “a web server”? :)

@movq I think audio compression techniques have come further than production. This sounds pretty darn good for 128kbps.

You gotta admire the quality of today’s audio productions. Everything is crystal clear. That in itself is a pleasure to listen to. 👌 Audio engineering really has come a long way. 😍

(If you like this kind of thing, look up the official video of “Into The Earth”. It’s a short horror film. The imagery might be a bit disturbing, depending on what you’re used to, so I won’t link it.)

@prologic It’s been a while, but your code I’ve seen so far didn’t look too bad to me. I remember we had discussions about missing tests, but other than that, I can’t recall any “oh dear, WTF” momements. Obviously, there’s always something, that can be improved, nobody writes perfect code. Only close to perfect. :-) Being sick and having time pressure doesn’t help writing good code either. So, don’t take the harsh feedback too seriously. Let a week pass and have a look again, your perspective might have shifted and you possibly understand what they wanted to tell you, assuming they wanted to give you honest feedback. Buck up! :-)

(#4xxgkfq) That’s exactly what I expected from both of you, @abucci and @mckinley. :-) Ah, right, didn’t think of cbl and friends. When I quickly counted by HTTP status code, I thought it would be nice to interactively drill down further. But I couldn’t answer my question of what I actually want to see or look out for, so I stopped.

(#6lytfga) @abucci Can you chuck that up on our Wiki or create a PR and add it somewhere to like I dunno contrib or deployment? 🙏

@mckinley Yeah thanks man I appreciate it! 🤗 But right now I feel like my code sucks and I’ve been beaten 😢

@prologic Don’t let yourself get beaten down, man.

(#4xxgkfq) @lyse A week was only a few kilobytes of logs for me, so I just used grep and a text editor. @adi wrote a suite of command line tools for analyzing different web server log formats if you’re interested: fl, cl, and cbl

I’m also worried about the “lack of unit tests” feedback too, because I am reminded of TDD When did it all go wrong – Where you see so many engineers do “unit tests” wrong 🤦‍♂️ – If you don’t have time to watch this (rather long) video, TL;DR:

Unit tests test the behaviour of the system, or the API boundaries.
Unit tests should not test any implementation details.
They should let you refactor the implementation.

This was the original intent behind Unit Tests and AFAIK still is.

Got the results of my take-home today and whilst there was some good feedback, man the criticisms of my work were harsh. I’m strictly not allowed to share the work I did for this take-home test, and I really can only agree with the “no unit tests” piece of the feedback, I could have done better there, but I was time pressured, sick and ran out of steam. I was using a lot of libraires to do the work so in the end found it difficult to actually think about a proper set of “Unit Tests”. I did write one (in shell) but I guess it wasn’t seen?

The other points were on my report and future work. Not detailed enough I guess? Hmmm 🤔

Am I really this bad? Does my code suck? 🤔 Have I completely lost touch with software engineering? 🤦‍♂️

#dmkicsa movq > Alright, here we go, it’s been a year now. I have a camera sitting in one of the windows, it takes a shot every day. Here’s a timelapse video:

@movq I would have never guessed it. Felt different than last time. Looking forward to the next version in half a year where I’m going to be surprised to have already seen two thirds. :-)

(#gqqqwca) @prologic and @abucci any chance we can have the video call on Sunday UTC, since i’m ofter busy on Satuday mornings? I’m I Denmark so same timezone as our German and Norwegian friends

(#gqqqwca) @prologic Midnight for you is okay? Maybe if I got up that early on Saturday for the meeting I would actually go find some garage sales like I always mean to do.

Also, check out the hash of the parent twt. Quads!
