Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “I’ve been in groups where I’m the only woman and a man has used a swear word and then apologised to me. Not to any of the men surrounding us, but just to me: it seems that these men think they can use profanities around other men but not around me. Why?” – Guys and Girls: Does Your Language Exclude People?
  • “Become better allies to women of color in tech.…It’s going to ta every single of us.…all of us work to be a little more intersectional and a little more inclusive.” – !GHC: Julie Ann Horvath – Shifting the Narrative of Diversity in Tech
  • “…true artificial intelligence, if it is realized, might pose a danger that exceeds every previous threat from technology—even nuclear weapons—and that if its development is not managed carefully humanity risks engineering its own extinction. Central to this concern is the prospect of an “intelligence explosion,” a speculative event in which an A.I. gains the ability to improve itself, and in short order exceeds the intellectual potential of the human brain by many orders of magnitude.” – The Doomsday Invention
  • “‘Look around the table. There’s only one woman here. And we all say we want more women in engineering. But who wants to be at this table if you’re all making jokes about how ‘all women are 10’s with the lights off’? We say we all want more women in engineering, and you’re just making the only woman here want to leave.’” – I’m one of the guys
  • “It is not your life. It is not who you are. It is your code.” – Your code is just your code.
  • “The people who run the Internet platforms are making calls about who they think is deserving of empathy. That makes their decisions thoroughly political.” – The Politics of Empathy and the Politics of Technology
