Early Friday Links

Summer Sunnsets
I am off tomorrow, so Friday Links come on a Thursday. 

I could blame the list being shorter than usual on this, but in reality I have been spend most of my time watching the twins reacting to music I like (see link below).

Managment

How to Build and Scale High-Performing Teams with David Sakamoto, VP of Customer Success at Gitlab [Podcast] - interesting perspective from a non technology fully remote VP

Technology 

Changing World, Changing Mozilla - This is pretty depressing. I have been using Firefox since it was called Mozilla. As usual the statement makes it sound like a good thing, but it really is not. It is also worth checking out the comments on the web, for example on lwn.net.

Cloud Traffic - we are way to small to worry about this kind of stuff, but I am kind of glad about it

Code Coverage Best Practices - results by some research from Google: "it does help and it is what we got", the paper goes more into detail

Moving Ulabox to Next.js - front-end stacks will be front-end stacks

Working

This is what coronavirus will do to our offices and homes - imagining how our future of office and homes will look like. Is it a dream or a nightmare?


Atlassian tells employees they can work from home forever
- the article is not quite as black and white as the headline

All of its locations, [...], will remain open, and the company expects to adjust them so they can be used efficiently. Employees will be welcome to return to the offices should they want to use them.

Some details of Atlassian’s plan have yet to be finalized. The company hasn’t decided how compensation might change for employees who relocate to other regions, nor has it figured out the right number of people to work in each time zone to ensure a sufficient amount of overlap.

Random Twins

These are the twins whose first-time reaction to hearing Phil Collins has captured the internet - the videos of these guys are great on so many levels. I just keep on going through their very long back catalogue of reaction videos. I am rediscovering music I haven't listed to for decades and remember the joy of listening to a brilliant new song for the first time. I am also realising that I am definitely a music snob. I have a certain taste and are not really open to anything else. I wish I could forget all music I ever listened to and start from scratch. Nowadays I am mostly listening to a constant stream of new electronic music podcasts, which at least give me the experience of listening to new music all the time. I am now also trying this with YouTube music, but as I said: I am a music snob. 

A new global COVID-19 map for journalists - Google knows how do make pretty maps, these are very nice and you can embed them in your pages

Love you to death: how we hurt the animals we cherish  - I imagine that sometime in the future keeping pets will be mostly illegal. This will start with weird breeds, keeping animals in small apartments and horse riding. You can't go vegan and care about how livestock is treated and then keep animals just for your pleasure. I have two cats and a dog and am clearly conflicted about this. 

'We need people here': the Spanish towns welcoming migrants  - not just in Spanish towns. Inviting large number of migrants to Germany will probably be seen very positively in the future. 
Friday Links Disclaimer
Inclusion of links does not imply that I agree with the content of linked articles or podcasts. I am just interested in all kind of perspectives. If you follow the link posts over time you might notice common themes though.
