Woot, extended 2 more job offers today, one Jr. and one Sr. I suspect there are at least 3 more people in the pipeline I will be hiring. All from this one post.

That leaves at least 10 out of 15 positions open for anyone still looking for a job!

We also just donated another $5K to our open-source fund. This will go to paying open-source contributors on our projects bounties for completing certain tasks. Very excited by that as well. We are even using it on interviews for code projects so in a sense we are paying people to take interviews with us even if they dont get the job through those bounties. I am getting some interesting reactions with that one.

Please reboost!

Trying something new, everyone is guaranteed an interview! Open interviews! For a limited time no one will be skipped (except for clear cases of abuse).

So we still have about 13 more 100% remote positions to hire for full-time market-fair positions here at QOTO/CleverThis.

100% remote, work from any beach, market-fair offers. Ethics first, we treat our people like family.

Focus on Knowledge Graphs, ML, AI, Mathematics, Java, C, looking for Polyglots.

We are an open-source first company, we give back heavily to the OSS community.

We need everything from jr to sr, data scientist to programmer. If your IT and your good, you might be a fit.

I will personally be both your direct boss, and hiring manager. I am also the founder and inventor.

All the job descriptions can be seen by going to this link and looking at the menu on the left-hand side where other positions are listed:

If you would like to submit yourself for an interview, which for a limited time I am guaranteeing you will get a first stage interview, then you can submit your application here, and even schedule your interview as you apply!

cal.com/team/cleverthis/interv

For those of you who cant schedule during core hours you can even schedule in my free time if you’d like a chance (the company doesnt have fixed hours):

cal.com/team/cleverthis/interv

I am truly amazed at the number of applicants I have seen off of this single post. And almost all are well suited candidates worth my time to review. I am astonished that a single post on the fedi is more effective than actually hiring a recruiter. Thank you everyone for the boosts and applications.

While many applicants have made it through and are currently being hired because we have so many positions we have quite a few still available for every level from sr to jr, and both data scientists and programmers. So please keep boosting, sharing, and applying if anyone is interested.

Just a reminder this is 100% remote, no fixed hours, will pay market rates for position. I will be your direct boss and hiring manager (also owner, founder, and inventor of the tech).

If anyone is interested I just created a Docker image for jupyterLabs that contains about a dozen different languages including Haskell, Javascript, Typescript, Go and several others.

You can run it with:

docker run -v "/home/freemo/source:/home/jovyan/work" -p 8888:8888 -it modjular/jupyterlab-all

Then just open it in your browser. Enjoy!

So I am about to release v2.1.0 of (A Hugo based Static Page Generator that has ActivityPub/Fediverse support).

I am running the latest version on my personal page. Could anyone who has a moment check it out and see if you see any CSS glitches? Any feedback welcome. I will release later today.

Website running v2.1: JeffreyFreeman.me

Fedi handle: @freemo

As many of you know by now I've been working on the project the past few days.

fedipage.com

One thing I dont like however is right now it locks you into Vercel as your deployment. However our dependence on it is rather minimal as we use it only to cover the serverless functions needed as well as some simple routing.

My fear is many may not be able to afford vercel or may not like them as an option. Does anyone know of a cheaper more FLOSS/privavcy oriented option that makes it easy to deploy typescript/java based serverless functions?

If I can find a good alternative I'd love to adapt the project to support Vercel alternatives.

What name do you like best for a non-profit community for Ham Radio? Think Apache incubator but for Ham plus other open-source services and resources for the community.

FYI I have both the dot com and dot org as well as the hyphenated and non hyphenated versions of the below. Please mention which variant you prefer in comments.

I'm trying to implement the complete v2.2 Ax.25 stack.. made a lot of progress but the more progress I make the more I realize this was a really poorly designed protocol.

A little gem I just published that allows you to create true abstract classes and methods in Ruby. Basically throws an error at instantiation / creation of an abstract class if abstract methods arent implemented.

While there are a few gems that allow you to create abstract classes and methods all of the ones i found just cause abstract methods to throw errors when called if not implemented. This solution actually throws an error when you attempt to create the class itself, so it is fail-fast and more in line with the spirit of an abstract method.

Repo: git.qoto.org/abstractify/abstr

Gem: rubygems.org/gems/abstractify

PS: Probably the first and only project I will ever write with a true 100% code coverage report :)

Ya know the more I reflect on the languages I know the more I realize that outside of functional languages none of them really handle immutability well.

Consider that you want most of your objects to be immutable most of the time. Thats all well and good till you realize you want to be able to edit the objects in such a way that it creates duplicates that have some data changed but are likewise immutable.

This tends to stop working, almost entierly, once you get into subclassing. If you parent class has a method that returns a copy of itself with some data modified, this will break in children classes, since you want children classes to return instances of itself, not its parent.

Its not that you cant fix that, but the code gets very ugly very quickly. Generally you are forced to let the code handling the classes do the copying and editing itself, but that is pretty ugly too.

I have had this pattern problem in almost every OO language i messed with, Java, Ruby, Python, etc.

Please this to help others, thanks!

I offer free tutoring in most college level courses. Can be online, just random questions, video chat, or even in person.

If anyone needs help learning any STEM topic (even you arent in school), please reach out to me I am always happy to help. If I dont know the subject I can also maybe connect you with someone who does, but I am well versed on most of the basics like , and design.

I suspect docker removing the free tier is going to absolutely devistate them. All the open-source software, which is what dominated docker, is now scrambling to find alternatives.

Also since docker treates docker hub as first class for fetching images I suspect people will move off docker entierly.

It is going to be pretty crazy for the open source community too having all the images they depend on just disapear. Dev chains everywhere are going to break...

So despite being in charge and ultimately the guy who decided to get my entire company using JIRA I must admit… I hate it… As with many GUIs just way too much clicking and waiting and im too impatient.

Anyway, so I decided to install jira-cli ( github.com/ankitpokhrel/jira-c ) and I cant tell you how much nicer this is, certainly improves my stress levels…

If anyone is curious this is what a full workflow from ticket creation to completion looks like for me. Keep in mind if you are on a JIRA instance that isnt customized you can probably get by with fewer steps.

I wanna do a project in haskell soooo bad.. i just cant justify a full stack project with it for various technical and social reasons... but its so much fun!
