I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred. Commission will of course be payed.
There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...
Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.
I don't get people trying ranting today constantly how bad Amazon Prime Day deals are. I see a lot of electronics with awesome prices. Garmin watches, Nokia/Huawei/Samsung phones, even whisky.
