87: Getting to the Crux of the matter

Thursday, 25 April 2019


The Falcon Project (my new employer) is looking for a web development engineer with a strong frontend emphasis. We’re looking to hire remote in the US/Pacific timezone (and close by is possible too). One of our core focuses is communicating privacy issues to consumers in a way that lets them make informed choices. A key part of that is to get a diverse set of perspectives as we’re building the product. I’m personally really excited about the project and the potential that it has for good.

If you’re interested, you can apply at the link above, or reply to this email if you have any questions about the role.

Around the year 2030, 10 years 252 days and 10 hours away from now, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilisation as we know it. That is unless in that time, permanent and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society have taken place, including a reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 50%.

I’m Daniel Compton. I maintain public Maven repositories at Clojars, private ones at Deps, and help fund OSS Clojure projects (along with tons of generous members like Pitch, JUXT, Metosin, Adgoji, and Funding Circle) at Clojurists Together. If you’ve enjoyed reading this, tell your friends to sign up at therepl.net, or post a link in your company chatroom. If you’ve seen (or published) a blog post, library, or anything else Clojure/JVM related please reply to this to let me know about it.

If you’d like to support the work that I’m doing, consider signing up for a trial of Deps, a private, hosted, Maven Repository service that I run.
