Major Discussions

Mango Catch All Selector (see thread)

The discussion continues on a proposed PR creating a patch which would allow people testing out Mango to receive all of the docs and allow them to filter later (instead of creating an index), which could lower the bar to entry with testing/usage.

Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Feel this incredible, intelligent, regenerative machine you’re at the controls of. Move your fingers. Wiggle your toes. Open your eyes. If you’re walking, feel your body propel you forward — the numerous, uncountable moving parts all working in sync to get you where you’re going.” – Your body is an anchor to the present
  • One of the most fundamental causes of our lack of work-life balance (aside from living far beyond our means and thinking it’s “success”) is that we prioritize work over our general well-being. If you’re rolling your eyes because people who take mental health days, prefer sleep to answering early morning emails, and aren’t completely devoted to their desk jobs don’t succeed, it’s a matter of how you define a “good life.” – 4 Reasons Why You Should Make More Time to Relax
  • “Any book can be a self-help book!” – 17 Inspirational New Year’s Reads for the Self-Help Skeptic
  • “At the heart of any creative endeavor often lies fear; fear of missing an opportunity, of burning out, of not scaling, or fear of failure. In this presentation, Mindfulness Everywhere Director Gunatillake reminds us of the humanity in an often cold business world—and how to never lose sight of the fact that there is another human being at the other end of the screen.” – [VIDEO] You Are Not Your Work
  • “In psychology, the idea that everyone is like us is called the ‘false-consensus bias.’ This bias often manifests itself when we see TV ratings (‘Who the hell are all these people that watch NCIS?’) or in politics (‘Everyone I know is for stricter gun control! Who are these backwards rubes that disagree?!’) or polls (‘Who are these people voting for Ben Carson?’).” – The “Other Side” is Not Dumb
