Open source vocal user interface I came across [mycroft.ai] while searching for something related. It's an open source project for vocal user interfaces, a la Amazon Alexa. It even uses the "skills" word for particular applications, although ...

Having been a developer for a long time, I always go out of my way to make software easy for the user. I take feedback, try to not make assumptions that things are understood or readily apparent, and I make very detailed user guides with lots of ...

So I was asked, again, to give a "high level" estimate of the hours it would take to create a guide for something very technical and totally unrelated to anything I know about. . . . had to explain the difference between a SWAG (Silly, Wild Ass ...

Dunno if anyone here was on GitHub pro for the unlimited private repos, but Nat just announced that that feature will be in the free version as well. You can downgrade yours and not lose that aspect, if you're stingy like me. $7 a month is $7 a ...

Any Go programmers here? I'm learning Go this week, and I have...feelings. It's pretty cool, actually - I'm really liking some of the new ( me) concurrency idioms - channels of channels, wild! But my native tongue is C++, so Go feels awfully ...
