#sigrok has joined the #fediverse! We'll be posting announces and random other stuff over at @sigrok, with additional stuff from individual developer accounts.

Quick #introduction: sigrok is a FOSS project for all kinds of test&measurement gear, including logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, multimeters, programmable power supplies, and lots more.

Portable libs, protocol decoders written in #python, various CLI and GUI frontends.

If you're using Android on some phone or tablet and you're not using #fdroid yet, do yourself a favor and install it.

It's an alternative appstore with purely OSS software apps. Overall improved security and privacy on your mobile device (alternative apps for pretty much everything are available, with reduced tracking, no ads, no backdoors, reproducible builds, and so on).

I've been programming C++ getting on for 25-years. Yet today I learned about the Alternative Operator Tokens in which you can write...

if (foo && !bar) {}

...as...

if (foo and not bar) { }

Now I'm freaking out. How did I never hear about those before?
