I spent a lot of the day trying to understand how
works. I think I got there! I published
explaining how the programs generated by
quine-central work and I’ve started one that summarizes
quine-central generates them.
Along the way I made a few small improvements to my blog-generating software. I decided I much preferred the blogchain navigation I’d added over simply linking to a page with all posts under a tag, so I converted all posts with tags to use the former. (See the “RC Mini 7, 2020” above this post for an example.)
In the morning I had another coffee chat and one last discussion about code review, then started synthesizing the feedback from all those discussions. I hope to present my findings at the technical talks at the end of the day tomorrow.
Finally, I paired again on
cssc. We added support for reducing one species of multi-term
calc expression, ones like
calc(100% - 10px - 10px) that have multiple terms with
the same units next to each other. We might pair again tomorrow to get
cssc to handle expressions like
calc(100px - 10% - 10px) where the terms with the same
units are separated.
Tomorrow I’ll also pair on Literate Diffs, work on a tech talk, and
wrap up that second blog post on
quine-central. It’s hard
to believe tomorrow’s the last day of my batch. I’m going to get as
much as I can out of my remaining time, then think about how I’d like
to continue being a part in the RC community afterwards.
