Remember CSS was designed not just for English, but for RTL and top-to-bottom languages. If you need to vary your layout, target languages using HTML and style each separately. columns justify vertically and align horizontally, and vice versa for rows. in english. #YOW19.

@janellekz How do we solve the problem of communication breakdown between management and engineering? In business loans are a predictable tool, so technical debt sounds OK to business people. Technical debt is a poor metaphor. Technical debt is escalating risk - @janellekz at #YOW19.

@lizthegrey Loved this talk. So much to think about. Favourite thought of the day: If your Error budget hasn’t been used, try being a little riskier. #YOW19.

Thank you everyone at #yow19, my brain is now full. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Go forth and be a little bit more excellent than you were yesterday..

Says @troyhunt these “safety watches” for children actually let ANY user call any child simply by enumerating API parameters. As an IoT researcher and advocate, I want to help stamp out this laziness and incompetence. #yow19.

#Yow19 @sarahjwells: We no longer have change approval board; with our release rate of 2000 per year, that would have been 47 person-days of just filling in forms.

There are hidden game mechanics, says @Gaohmee in most games. Rubber banding, coyote time, AI that always miss with their first shot. Animations that alter to mesh with your movements. Choices that make no actual difference besides adding richness. #yow19.

So we used to have monoliths, then we broke things down into and microservice architectures are a chain of dominoes. We need to systemically watch and which means design patterns like circuit breakers, to stop large meltdowns/cascading failure. #YOW19.

They restrict the robots to human-readable behavior trees (which are mutable on the robot & fitness scored); that way the results can still be interpreted by humans. [ed: on one hand, this is fucking cool, on the other hand, the _Minority Report_ spiderbot ] #YOW19.

#Yow19 @starbuxman: in 2019, we now have laptops with 64GB of RAM; we finally have enough RAM to run both Slack and Chrome! 😂😂😂.

Also in terms of cultural am I alone in noticing that like 1/3 of the speakers are either currently at ThoughtWorks or ThoughtWorks alums? Almost as bad as (X|G)ooglers at #SREcon ;) #YOW19.

I’m a “seasoned CSS-ist” and I didn’t know about this 😱 life changing. position: sticky; will stick stuff on your webpage. #yow19 @Mandy_Kerr.

#Yow19 @boicy: The data suggests that as company sizes grow, they spend less % on R&D, and more processes b/c of their risk averse.

#Yow19 @boicy: This explains why larger companies slow down; they get more efficient; queues in orgs are like plaque in cardiovascular systems; it creates back pressure (cc @damonedwards); it constricts flow of information (and throughput).

Next up is @jchyip on 3 insights from 4 years at Spotify preceded by 14 at Thoughtworks. (1) Autonomy+alignment is a struggle (2) High growth requires different assumptions. (3) Consulting companies build high-performing teams faster. #YOW19.

#Yow19 @jamesshore: XP (Extreme Programming) brought us unit tests, continuous integration, pairing, and so many practices we love to use today.
