Una nueva etapa, bla bla bla

Bue­no, es­te es uno de eso­s.

Hoy em­pe­cé a tra­ba­jar en Ca­no­ni­ca­l. Sí, en Ca­no­ni­ca­l. Los de Ubun­tu. Tal vez te pre­gun­tes que va a ha­cer un KDEe­ro de la pri­me­ra ho­ra ahí. Bue­no, es un la­bu­ro, los 90s te pi­den que de­vuel­vas el fla­me­fes­t.

Soy el nue­vo "En­gi­nee­ring Ma­na­ger for the Desk­to­p+ grou­p". Qué miérco­les es eso? Bue­no, mi tra­ba­jo es ayu­dar a un gru­po de gen­te que me cae bien (los que co­noz­co al me­no­s) a crear so­ftwa­re co­pa­do.

Pro­ba­ble­men­te no pro­gra­me de­ma­sia­do, ya que es­te es un tra­ba­jo de adul­to, en que lo úni­co que se es­pe­ra que de­sa­rro­lle en per­so­na es una úl­ce­ra gás­tri­ca y la su­per­fi­cie de mi pe­la­da mien­tras arreo ga­tos ha­cia el co­rral mas cer­ca­no, pe­ro pro­ba­ble­men­te me las arre­gle pa­ra ha­cer al­gu­nas co­sas, a ve­ce­s.

Me lle­ga en un buen mo­men­to. Mi pi­be cum­ple 4 el año que vie­ne, y va a es­tar to­do el día en el co­le­gio. Que voy a ha­cer en ca­sa to­do el día? Ver ani­mé? Cons­truir ro­bo­ts ase­si­no­s? Pla­near co­mo con­quis­tar al mun­do, Pi­nk­y?

Y que pa­sa con mi tra­ba­jo an­te­rio­r? Bue­no­... to­da­vía si­gue ahí. Si­go sien­do due­ño de un pe­da­zo de Net Ma­na­gers (http://­ne­t­ma­na­ger­s.­co­m.ar) pe­ro me voy a apar­tar de la ope­ra­ción de la em­pre­sa.

Bá­si­ca­men­te, pien­so que­dar­me con el di­ne­ro y ti­rar­les el tra­ba­jo a mis que­ri­dos so­cios (men­ti­ra). En cual­quier ca­so la em­pre­sa fun­cio­na­rá igua­l, ya que si no sa­co pla­ta po­de­mos con­tra­tar un em­plea­do pa­ra que ha­ga lo que ha­cía yo, así que to­do el mun­do ga­na.

En otras no­ti­cia­s, si­go la­bu­ran­do en la mis­ma me­sa que los úl­ti­mos 5 año­s, ha­cien­do mas o me­nos lo mis­mo, con gen­te dis­tin­ta. Di­cho así no sue­na tan in­te­re­san­te... pe­ro bue­no, hay de­sa­fíos in­te­re­san­tes en es­te nue­vo tra­ba­jo.

Re­su­mien­do: Ca­no­ni­ca­l, po­co de pro­gra­ma­r, si­go sie­no due­ño de ne­t­ma­na­ger­s, es­toy con­ten­to.

Charla: docutils / rst y sus amigos

Again, span­ish on­ly be­cause it's a video... in span­ish.

Re­sul­ta que me olvidé que sí habían graba­do mi char­la de do­cu­tils y com­pañi­a. Gra­cias a Ger­mán por hac­erme acor­dar y mostrarme adonde es­taba!

Y ... acá es­tá:

Syndrome

Review:

Some may com­plain about the sci­ence in the book and they would be right. I will com­plain about some­thing else: the plot and the writ­ing.

Not on­ly is the plot fu­eled by co­in­ci­dence in a scale that would make any­one no­tice (ex­am­ples? the jour­nal­ist is the son of the bad guy bil­lion­aire *and* the old flame of the ar­chi­tec­t/­ex­per­i­men­tal sub­ject who is the sis­ter of the bad guys's CFO kind of co­in­ci­dences).

There is al­so the ran­dom de­tailed de­scrip­tion of things that don't mat­ter in the least, but al­so make no sense. Here's the de­crip­tion of Alan the door­man:


"When Ally and Knickers walked into her lobby, Alan, the morning doorman, was there, just arrived, tuning
his blond acoustic guitar.
Watching over her condominium building was his day job, but writing a musical for Off Broadway (about
Billy the Kid) was his dream. He was a tall, gaunt guy with a mane of red hair he kept tied back in a ponytail
while he was in uniform and on duty. Everybody in the building was rooting for him to get his show mounted,
and he routinely declared that he and his partner were this close to getting backers. "We're gonna have the
next Rent, so you'd better invest now" was how he put it. Alan had the good cheer of a perpetual optimist and
he needed it, given the odds he was up against."


Then he pats the dog and exchanges two phrases with the protagonist.

I marvel at the idea of a doorman that's allowed to play guitar on the lobby on working hours. With this introduction you may wonder what role Alan plays in the plot. Well, let me quote the only other mention of Alan in the whole book. It comes very near the end.


"The condominium no longer had a doorman. In hopes of trimming costs, the condo board had sent out a secret
ballot on the subject. By a narrow margin the owners had voted to dispense with that particular frill. Although
she missed Alan and his early morning optimism about his Off-Broadway hopes, she realized the economy
was probably timely. "


I rest my case. The plot is just lazy, the science is contrived, and the writing lame. Not a good book.

Charla: aplicaciones extensibles con PyQt

Span­ish on­ly, since it's about a video in span­ish ;-)

Acá es­tá, gra­cias a la gente de Junín, un video de mi char­la "Apli­ca­ciones ex­ten­si­bles us­an­do PyQt", en la que in­ten­to mostrar co­mo de­sar­rol­lar una apli­cación con PyQt y yap­sy.

No es una char­la con la que es­té muy con­tento. La otra sal­ió mejor, pero no se filmó, así que quedará so­lo en la memo­ria de los cu­a­tro gatos lo­cos que es­tábamos ahí ;-)
