I only discovered the music of during these past few weeks. What an inspiring creative force and political champion #FreePalestine

Ich habe mal einen Einführungskurs zur Webprogrammierung bei edX gemacht. Da gings in der 3 Stunde oder so um Romote Code Injection. Dass man damit bei der #LucaApp das Gesundheitsamt platt machen kann, spricht einfach (erneut) für maximale Unsorgsamkeit.

Modded my x270: Now I can charge it via USB-C and still have the built-in USB-C port available for other stuff.

Could not be more proud to work on this team!

Preparing a TDD workshop for my colleagues ... I always find a lot of joy in this kind of work 😊

I love how Belgians keep on living, no matter if it's pouring outside.

Last week I did the first upgrade to my when I added an NVMe SSD and configured to boot from it. I wrote a blog post about it

This was day 8 of

I can’t believe it took me so long to find out about this book and read it. It’s definitely going to my favorites list.

Weird - writing a Paypal scams article for a client (how to avoid them, not how to do them) and using Google docs because that’s what the client uses, when suddenly…
