    Hi @admataz, I'm okay thanks. I'm missing the wednesday buzz too. I got a nasty burn on my arm try to make pizza whilst too buzzed.
    How are you?

    ouch
    the perils of home working
    it's normal Monday morning focus issues here - so many interesting things happening, compared to the list of glitches and fixes required for the current Jira ticket
    Thomas Ankcorn
    @Ankcorn
    Any noteworthy nodejs gotchas causing a glitch?
    Adam Davis
    @admataz
    I wish it were so interesting.
    It's that polish phase of the project, day before release, and tickets from PO labeled "UX improvements"
    I sound like I'm complaining - I'm actually not

    giant jira - seems to always slow down - live script is interesting I had completely forgotten about it...

    so things are coming together for a May meetup - a few talk proposals coming in - and video platform sorted. watch this space for details
    meanwhile how are you @/all ? Is anyone finding they have more time for learning new technologies under lockdown?
    Thomas Ankcorn
    @Ankcorn
    I havent found the time or energy to learn any new technologies :D

    i’ve two kids, not a hope lol

    @Ankcorn
    have your kids learnt any new technologies during lockdown? got to get them started on node early otherwise they might decided that php is the way to go
    Stefano Vozza
    @svozza
    haha
    i was actually teaching the young fella python before this started

    the kids of today
    my young ones love coding too - it gives them such a thrill
    now they are taking over. my 12yo daughter enrolled in a 9 day hackathon called "teens in AI" and they went off and built apps and things. I'm totally blown away

    @/all - we gathering #nodestories - would be fun if we all could fill a board of these for the next meetup: https://twitter.com/LNUGorg/status/1258336380368928768

    I've been playing with using es modules unbundled in the browser, removing tech rather than adding new tech :) It works nicely, not so well with node though :(

    @simonmcmanus
    For the next podcast episode, we are going to look at "Finding a Job during a Pandemic" - We're going to look at what's going on with the node Jobs market at the moment. Who is still hiring and how to get a job in this climate. If you have questions, or things you would like us to investigate, please send them my way.

    @admataz
    In this context I’d be interested in a section on entrepreneurship - potential alternatives for keeping some income to finding a job if it doesn’t work out.

    ahh yes, I like that - will see what I can get in there. kinda related - I found this the other day. Government projects are legally obliged to consider bids from voluntary/community and social enterprise orgs which would include LNUG I think. Lots of details about bidding in here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vcses-a-bidders-guide-to-working-with-government

    wow that is impressive... so many amazing projects now its getting hard to choose.. Sounds like there will be an army of new coders though which is great..
    Adam Davis
    @admataz
    Hey @simonmcmanus - that is a very interesting doc - just scanning through it - it would be interesting to see how LNUG can help people get work through this kind of channel - I'm sure we could be considered a community social enterprise - we may need to do some organisational paperwork to make that more clear - and offer some accountability to our community (thinking constitution, nominated office bearers etc) I'm involved with another group focused on youth and coding education, and we've just been through a process of making the organisation more of an official entity with a constitution etc - if anyone's interested in taking LNUG to this level - let's chat.

    @Ankcorn Yup, Quasar (although, I haven't used it in a real project yet).
    The main things I learnt were around audio processing tho.

    @admataz
