Here are most of my tweets from the past week
Fantastic run and tackle which resulted in winning the ball back from Barcelona
Every year we run a survey. This year, more developers answered more questions than ever before.
26,086 people from 157 countries participated in our 45-question survey. 6,800 identified as full-stack developers, 1,900 as mobile developers, 1,200 as front-end developers, 2 as farmers, and 12,000 as something else.
Code is everywhere, and just about every coder uses Stack Overflow. Every day more coders are finding great jobs on Stack Overflow Careers.
We conducted this survey to help us better understand our community and to help our community better understand itself. For 2 weeks in early February we ran ads for the survey on Stack Overflow, posted it on Meta Stack Overflow, and shared it across social media.
These results are not unbiased. Like the results of any survey, they are skewed by selection bias, language bias, and probably a few other biases. So take this for what it is: the most comprehensive developer survey ever conducted. Or at least the only one that asks devs about tabs vs. spaces.
Imagine that the world as we know it ends tomorrow. There’s a global catastrophe: a pandemic virus, an asteroid strike, or perhaps a nuclear holocaust. The vast majority of the human race perishes. Our civilisation collapses. The post-apocalyptic survivors find themselves in a devastated world of decaying, deserted cities and roving gangs of bandits looting and taking by force.
Bad as things sound, that’s not the end for humanity. We bounce back. Sooner or later, peace and order emerge again, just as they have time and again through history. Stable communities take shape. They begin the agonising process of rebuilding their technological base from scratch. But here’s the question: how far could such a society rebuild? Is there any chance, for instance, that a post-apocalyptic society could reboot a technological civilisation?
I have read all Neal Stephenson's book and will check out this one as well when it is released
The so-called king of shrugs
Also known as pigeon man. This is obviously not how you do shrugs
RethinkDB 2.0 inverts the traditional database model. Instead of polling for changes, the developer can tell RethinkDB to continuously push live query updates to the application. Propagating updates from the persistence layer simplifies realtime application architecture by eliminating the need for external message queues and other extraneous plumbing. You can also take advantage of RethinkDB’s distributed architecture to effortlessly scale your realtime app.
Good, I am not a fan of those stupid sticks
In an update to the rules for Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple is banning 2015 attendees from using selfie sticks or any other kind of photo monopod within the bounds of either Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens.
Ha ha ha, I had to look if this was posted by the Onion
A Czech national has declared a new tiny country in a disputed no man's land between Croatia and Serbia naming it Republic of Liberland.
Vít Jedlička, a leading member of a libertarian political party in the Czech Republic, has also proclaimed himself the president of the area which is about seven square kilometres.
Jedlička has invited applications from people across the world to acquire citizenship from the"Republic of Liberland", which he says, is the smallest sovereign state in Europe after the Vatican and Monaco.
The area lies along the Danube, technically a no man's land, which is sometimes referred to as Gornjua Siga.

This stuff is looking good.
One man refused to acknowledge the iPhone's superiority while the other refused to admit that the new Samsung smartphone was better.
When they couldn't reach an agreement they proceeded to stab each other repeatedly with smashed beer bottles.
