Tech Workers Coalition

Tech Workers Coalition Berlin

Tech Workers have a lot of potential power to change society. Anyone who identifies as a tech worker and is interested in learning how to build collective power or get involved in a campaign is welcome. Tech Workers are currently organising against gender pay gaps, workplace harassment, surveillance technologies, amongst other things. This document is an agenda item for the first meeting of Tech Workers Coalition Berlin.

A panel about Tech Workers Movement was held earlier this month 10 June 2019 at Aquarium Am Südblock, featuring Logic Magazine co-founders Ben Tarnoff and Moira Weigel. Ben, who is also an organiser of the Boston chapter, will be present during the meeting. You can click to watch the video or listen for audio.

What is wrong with Ruby? - Research project

Introduction

Our industry has a tendency to follow hypes without backing it with solid constructive claims. Over the past few years, trashing Ruby was one of these hypes, I also find that the so called "Senior Engineers" tend to promote hypes to appear more opinionated without really trying to explain the logical claims behind it, leaving the community beginners and new joiners really confused.

Goals of the project

  • Solidifying the claims behind the hype (Because I believe it stems from real problems, not just an empty hype) and eventually passing this to Ruby core team as an input from the community.
  • Explain these problems in a much simpler language to beginners and community new joiners.

Initial Focal points

gif-from-tweet

There are so many great GIFs out there and I want to have copies of them. Twitter makes that harder than it should be by converting them to MP4 and not providing access to the source material. To make it easier, I made a bash pipeline that takes a tweet URL and a filename, extracts the MP4 from that tweet and uses ffmpeg to convert back to GIF.

Dependencies

  • ffmpeg
    • macOS: brew install ffmpeg
    • Ubuntu/Debian: apt install ffmpeg
