👋 I’ve been on Mastodon off and on for a while, but I don’t think I ever did an . I’m Yono and I love learning new things.

I’m a freelance software developer, who specializes in , (especially ), and sometimes backend development.

Occasionally, I’ll speak at conferences and write tutorials and blog posts.

I joke around a lot. I enjoy watching movies and used to run a movie theater at my university. I also love reading SciFi.

Glad to be here!

The German phrase "zwischen den Jahren" ("between the years") refers to the days between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day or - depending on who you ask - the 6th of January (Epiphany).

So, if your German friends don't answer the phone or open the door during that period, please remember:

They are spending their holidays in a non-existing time-slot between 2 consecutive years.

Enjoy our language!


Here's a fun little fact I just remembered. I was once sitting with someone trying to understand how a repo had been messed up, by way of an absolutely terrible commit. We figured it out eventually. It was me that made the commit. The other person was my manager. And the repo was the Objective-C runtime.

Happy Thursday, hope this helps!

A large portion of my day today has been spent bumbling my way through AWS

The best feed algorithm is artisanal—a partner with a current and nuanced mental model of you who curates a best-of-the-best selection and texts them to you throughout the day.

We reciprocate this duty in our house. I’m the Mastodon algo and she does the same for me with Pinterest.

I need a "once I've seen a post, don't show it to me again" setting.

Occasional boost that GIFWrapped from @jelly is a good GIF collection and search app and you should get it and pay for premium.

So… I need to move instances. How does one decide on a new instance these days? Is there the equivalent of a matchmaking site for Mastodonians and instances?

In September, I gave a talk at called “How Not to Develop an Umm Detector Using Create ML”.

In the talk I show how I trained a audio classifier for and improved it incrementally.

The recording has been posted online now:

If you have any feedback for me, I’m all ears! It’s the best way to improve 😀

Good morning to all the Mastodonians (Mastodonites?) out there ☕️

I just spent entirely too much time trying to figure out how to configure dynamic DNS updating via my double NAT’d router only to remember I have a Synology that can probably do it for me.

Yup. 30 seconds of setup on the Synology.

The asteroid that ended the dinosaurs was technically the highest ratio of killing birds to one stone.

I put a Mastodon sticker on my laptop. I never once put a blue bird sticker on a laptop ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Amazing to think that before embedded computers, this effect was impossible to achieve.

I keep remembering every once in a while that I need to verify my website for Mastodon.

@joehribar how’ve you been? It’s been a while!

And out of curiosity… do you have a LEGO advent calendar? 😀
