Sometimes the explanation given for this practice is that it helps reading code, other times that this way we directly can spot that this is indeed a boolean. I would like to discuss those two assumptions. It helps reading code Maybe this is just me but I like when code reads like instructions.

Previous Quarter Plan A quarter plan (let’s start with a quick win!) ✅ A blog post on my first ever contribution to OpenStreetMap (don’t get your hopes high, it was a really really tiny thing) ❌ Continuing the CivicTech meetups by Les Bricodeurs ❌ Had to be put on hold for now, not that I don’t want to participate in anymore but those meetups have been paused so there’s that Refactoring of all the Ansible playbooks to deal with my server 🔁 This one has been started but is still an ongoing work....

Trust your bluetooth mouse on Linux

I recently acquired a Logitech bluetooth mouse and, although I was enjoying it a lot as always with Logitech, I was quite disappointed that I had to pair it again with my computer everytime it went to sleep or I would reboot it. So, after a small time of frustration, I decided to take a look on what was really going on, because the bluetooth keyboard was working like a charm, surviving reboots and so on....
