  2. I love that now has shiny namespacing and a thriving code sharing community, but I think the heavily hierarchical namespacing practises used by some of the community (e.g. symfony components) are unhealthy.

    They are difficult to memorise, relying on (often slow) IDE autocomplete, and encourage a use statement for each class. That’s pretty much a scoped equivalent of from x import * in python — not a good practise! It’s still namespace pollution, it just takes longer to write.

    I am trying to use a more python–like, package-centred approach with much fewer subnamespaces. The outcome of this should be that you use the package name:

    use BarnabyWalters
osse;

    …and then using all the classes/subnamespaces from that root, e.g: $t = Posse\Helpers::convertHtmlToTwitterFormat($s);

  3. Question: What Status code should I use for “You haven’t provided enough/correct information to carry out that method”? Currently I’m thinking 422 Unprocessable Entity.

    Context: POST request to a list resource for the creation of a new sub-resource.

  4. I thought this was the funniest thing I'd read in a long time, but as I started to follow the links, I realised it’s actually serious. I am heartily tempted to unsubscribe from the fedsocweb community group knowing the perpetrators of this… “material” hang around there.

    Or, maybe it’s a big joke and I’m not getting it. Perhaps.

  5. Active Boredom: the state of being consciously bored but (usually) unable to otherwise divert yourself, as opposed to passive boredom, which is more of a subconsious feeling that something new should be happening soon.

  6. superfeedr: Barnaby Walters Thanks Barnaby :) [Also, I could not log into your site with indieAuth :/]

    superfeedr yeah, there’s a weird bug where logging in only works the second time round — I haven’t fixed it yet as I rarely have to log in! At the mo there is little benefit to others logging in but I may add private content/collaborative features in the future. Crowd-sourced typo fixing FTW ;)
