Survey: What was your favorite movie of 2018?
@art_abon i’m always willing to answer questions if i can. “free training” seems like a different matter altogether lol
@jtannady I was just curious because in the places I’ve worked at (in the Philippines), female software devs wasn’t really uncommon (in some batches I’ve trained even more than 50% female)
@jtannady my experience is probably mostly anecdotal though, i’m not sure if it’s true for the local industry at large
@jtannady you’re from indonesia right? do you feel this sort of thing is similarly a problem in SEA or just in the US?
@art_abon free training?

Merry Christmas everyone!
Christmas Steam giveaway! Somehow yet again I’ve accumulated a bunch of extra keys for Steam games, so I’ll give some away this Christmas. Here are some games I’m giving out:
Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director’s Cut Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition Sniper Elite Sniper Elite V2 Resident Evil Revelations World of Goo Elders Scrolls Morrowind
Edit: Adding some other keys I found, but I’m not sure these are still valid (we’ll find out when someone asks for them!) Crusader Kings II Legend of Grimrock
If you’d like one of these, please add me on Steam (my account name is “hungryroy”), comment below with your Steam account and the game(s) you want. The Steam account is required. If you list multiple games, you’ll still only receive one if you win. If multiple people want a particular game, one will be chosen randomly or at my discretion. (There is no DTI representative.). Recipients will be chosen on Saturday the 29th.
I don’t ask for anything in return, but if you have any extra Steam trading cards you’re not using, I wouldn’t mind if you sent me some.

Coincidentally, both the US and PH congresses failed to pass funding bills this month. In the US, this leads to a (I believe partial) federal shutdown. In the PH, it means a reenacted 2019 budget until a funding bill is passed. Curious about the why and effect of this difference

Earlier I walked the whole length of university road to philcoa, about 1700 steps. Couldve sworn it was much longer back when I was in college
Something to do: Every time you see an epal “there’s no such thing as premature campaigning” ad from one of the devil’s minions, share something about one of the lesser-known but better and vastly more deserving senatorial candidates. Here’s senatorial candidate Chel Diokno https://t.co/8mJIsFxem7
Chel Diokno is chairman of the Free Legal Assistance Group, which Jose W. Diokno founded. It is the Philippines’ oldest and largest group of human rights lawyers.
(I do not entirely agree that our institutions work, since the problematic justice system is one of those institutions)
