I'm going to try to get back into programming. I know I'm smart enough. If I can use Emacs, figure out how to download a file using wget and can make packages, (I installed the latest Python on Debian by building it once) then surely I can program. I just have to remember to take my depression meds, 2 of them, 100 Milligrams, helps a lot! And I have to not compare myself to everyone else that's already programmed games, websites, apps, all that. #programming #coding #blind


Ok, in an hour, i'll be starting this up. High temps, high effort and high complexity, what oculd go wrong? Let's dig into the #screenReader #accessibility of #jupyter notebooks, a tool prevalent in #dataScience, #python #programming in general, #machineLearning and therefore also practically all things #ai etc.
See you then over at twitch.tv/ic_null and youtube.com/@blindlycoding #goingLive #twitch #youtube #selfPromo


ok ok ok, we covered #jupyter last week. Our #datascience adventure continues with checking into the #accessibility of #google CoLab. Is it better than jupyter? Worse? Are there tools to make it better? How's a #blind person even do #ML and datascience anyway? Come see in just over 2 hours at twitch.tv/ic_null and youtube.com/@blindlycoding #python #programming #coLab #selfPromo


Guys, I need money. So I decided to try and write AppleScirpts, scripts for the Mac. Is there anything you wish your Mac did and it doesn’t? COntact me and we may be able to fix it. #macOS #Apple #programming #blind


1. Don't code when you're tired.
2. Don't login as root on your Linux/Unix boxes when you're tired, guys.
3. See # 1 again.
4. With time you will forget these rules again.

Are you (or know) a blind programmer? What is your set-up? TTS or Braille? What OS do you use? IDE/editor? What limitations, annoyances or show-stopper issues have you encountered? Particularly interested if you use Rust, but happy to hear about the state of developer experience for blind programmers more generally.

Coding stats time! In 2023, 11,272 commits were made to the #LibreOffice source code, from 253 authors, in 21 repositories. Find out more: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl… #coding #programming #foss #OpenSource


So... I made noise on their official discussion spot. That means I'm locked in. uh oh :P discourse.jupyter.org/t/stream… :P #dataScience #AI #MachineLearning #jupyter #notebooks #Python #programming #selfPromo #twitch


Some time ago I have written an article about interesting way to use Strings in #Swift. If you wish, feel free to take a look and tell me what I did wrong.

Dear developer community,
In the latest beta of Xcode (16A5171c) a bug exists which makes it extremely difficult for blind people from using the autocomplete features. If you are an user of Xcode, please test with VoiceOver and thenfill in a feedback with Apple. I thank you on my behalf and other developers who will benefit from them fixing it.

Hey people. I am not good with #introduction posts but let's see. My name is Arkadiusz, I am currently 22 years old and I am studying #chinese in #Milan, #Italy. I am passionate about #programming for #Apple platforms, as I am a huge fan of their hardware and software. I will be mostly writing and reading about #accessibility, #programming, #swift, #china and #chinese (in no particular order). Hit me up for any questions.


My friend, who has #ADHD, is looking to get into #programming, specifically #python. He's been using the official Python tutorial thus far, but I feel like he'd do much better with something like the #Rust book (practical chapters where you build small projects intermixed with reference chapters that teach the concepts). I feel that having interludes where you play a more active role will keep the whole learning process more frictionless. Does anyone know of such a thing geared towards Python?


I maintain a CLI application and I’m wondering about accessibility. What does an accessible CLI look like? What sort of patterns are good or should be avoided? Any good examples out there? Or research papers?

I have some ideas, but I’d prefer to learn from others first.

We've been doing this a while. Let's SWING for the big leagues.
Tomorrow, we're doing a deep dive on #burpSuite from a #screenReader perspective. It will be mostly #blind (as in playthrough) as I've not looked at this program for a few years, and fully blind (as in sight) given ... well ... screenReader user :)

I've learned more, and hey who knows, maybe they've improved ......
If it turns out they haven't, we'll look at @zaproxy next as a more viable, generally more #accessible alternative. See you tomorrow at 3 EST over at twitch.tv/ic_null #infosec #cybersecurity #zaproxy #portswigger #java #programming


today's stream on #programming editors from a #screenReader perspective can be rewatched here: youtube.com/live/r0uP4wMpg9o


just now thought about something

scratch, the 'language' for teachings kids the basics of #programming, has better first class support for async work than a bunch actual programming languages


I have a newfound enormous appreciation for curl's ability to re-use connections in combination with the curl multi interface. Lightning fast way to make craploads of HTTPS requests!

I am playing with the NaturalLanguage framework in #Swift and I am having some interesting results. Here are the most similar words to the word „Dictatorship”. The left column are the words, the right is the distance. The more distant, the less similar the word is.

dictator 0.7791867852210999
autocracy 0.7871801853179932
dictatorial 0.7904724478721619
regime 0.7980139851570129

despotism 0.8681145310401917
despot 0.8691430687904358
Here is the code I used.
import NaturalLanguage
guard let embedding = NLEmbedding.wordEmbedding(for: .english) else {
print("Nic z tego nie będzie.")
fatalError()
}
let words = embedding.neighbors(for: "dictatorship", maximumCount: 10)
for word in words {
print("\(word.0)\t\(word.1)")
}

We got up to 71 followers in not even a day. That is honestly meteoric.
Tomorrow at 3 PM EST I'll do a first #stream. We'll make us a #TryHackMe account, go through the new user flow, maybe do a room or two while looking at the various #accessibility gotchas we run into. In future streams we'll do similar for HTB, HTBA etc. as well as more #programming related things but tomorrow ...we leave pallet town all mozie-like. See you all then! #twitch #infoSec #selfPromo


So ...let's face it. A LOT of folks in tech circles are somewhat amazed a fully #blind person can even find the power button on a computer, let alone operate it professionally. I am such a person, and I'd like to bust that myth.
It's also true that many #hacking tools, platforms, courses etc. could use some help in the #accessibility department. It's a neverending vicious circle.
Enter my new twitch channel, IC_null. On this channel, I will be streaming #programming and #hacking content including THM, HTB and who knows what else, from the perspective of a #screenReader user.
What I need, is an audience. If this is something you reckon you or anybody you know might be interested in, drop the channel a follow or share this post. Gimme that #infoSec Mastodon sense of comradery and help me out to make this idea an actual thing :) twitch.tv/ic_null #tryHackMe #streamer #selfPromo


Lessons learned after 3 years of fulltime Rust game development, and why we're leaving Rust behind

A part of #Rustlang that doesn't get mentioned but is a ridiculous quality of life boon:

dbg!()

Just #[derive(Debug)] on a struct and print it. Suddenly you get insight into what's going on. Very rarely do you need to write your own print.

Insert a dbg in the middle of anything

let diffi = debug!(diffs).iter();

and you get a message with line number and the name of variable:

[src/lib.rs:192:19] diffs = [16, 86, 11]

Not even #Python has that!

Coding Matrix in Rust | 2023-03-14


Coding our Matrix bot in Rust. This time:

  • Finished !greet, making sure it only affects this room
  • Started on a schema upgrade for the arnie plugin, so we can have multiple personalities

Next time:

  • More work on allowing multiple people, so we can !arnie !person !add and make a new one


Rust web frameworks have subpar error reporting
