Poesia: "Fiori in primavera"
Se vuoi portarmi dei fiori in primavera
Portami dei carciofi
Che ce li facciamo a fettine sottili
E con gli scarti
Facciamo il risotto

Dai, non importa che mi dai del voi
In che senso?
Eh, mi dici sempre "voi informatici", "voi tecnici", "voi..."

In the airport, we are not travellers. We are a captive audience with dwell time.
In other words, suckers stuck in a room where the only pastime provided is spending money and staring at advertisements selling advertisement space in rooms full of suckers like them.cazzeggio eng pdo rant
Umarell /uma'rɛl/ (oo-mah-rell), n; pl. Umarells. People in a community who offer all sorts of comments to those who are trying to get some work done, but who are not doing any work themselves.
Etymology and further details
Umarell is a word that entered Italian slang in Bologna and is spreading to nearby towns, occasionally even across Italy. It comes from the Bolognese for "cute/odd little man".
"Umarells" are those people, usually retired men, who spend time watching construction works, often holding their hands behind their back, occasionally commenting on what is going on, sometimes trying to tell the workers what to do.
With some Italian Debian friends, we realised that umarell is the perfect word to describe those people in a community, who offer all sorts of comments to those who are trying to get some work done, but who are not doing any work themselves.
I think that it is a word that fits perfectly, and since I'm likely going to use it blissfully anywhere, here is a page that temporarily explains what it means until the Oxford English Dictionary picks it up.cazzeggio debian eng life pdo
Many years ago I shortly contracted for Canonical. It was interesting and fun.
At the time I didn't have any experience of being temporarily hired by a foreign company, so I rang my labour union to get an appointment, to make sure with them that everything was allright.
The phone call went more or less like this:
Hello. I have received this contract for temporary employment by a foreign company and I wondered if I could book an appointment to come show it to you to see if it's all ok.
Their answer rather cut me short:
Hi. Be careful! People get temporary employment from obscure companies with the headquarters, like, in the Isle of Man, they do the job, the company disappears and they never get paid. There's bad stuff out there!
I looked at the contract, the heading said something like "Canonical ltd, Douglas, Isle of Man".
I was certain that the union people would have never understood what was going on. I politely thanked them for their time and hung up. However, to this day I still regret that I didn't insist:
Uh, yes, the company is indeed in the Isle of Man. But what if I told you that it's owned by an astronaut?
I just signed the contract and had a good time.cazzeggio debian eng life pdo
I came up with a little rule:
In order to be worth of any attention, a framework must be stable enough that I can charge money to train people to use it.
This probably applies to other kinds of software stacks, libraries, development environments and, well, to most software applications.
In the context of python web frameworks, this means that:
- If it changes API all the time it is not worth of attention, because my customers won't get value for their money, as they'd continuously need retraining and rewriting their software.
- If I see lots of DeprecationWarnings it is not worth of attention, because my customers will see them and blame me for teaching them deprecated stuff.
- If fixes for bugs affecting the stable version are only distributed "in a
recent git" or "in the next development version", and they are not
backported into a new bugfix-only stable release, then it is not worth of
- my customers' business is to develop their own products based on the framework.
- My customers' business is not to be maintaning in-house stable updates of the framework. Although if the framework's community is nice enough they might end up giving a hand.
- If it requires virtualenv or can only be obtained through easy_install it is
not worth of attention, because:
- my customers are not interested in maintaning custom deployment environments over time.
- My customers are not interested in tracking each and every single library's upstream development to keep their production system free of bugs.
- My customers are used to getting software through a proper distribution which also takes care of security updates.
- I am paid to teach them how to use a framework, not a custom python-only package management system.
- In my experience, if distributions have trouble keeping packages up to date, upstream is doing something fundamentally wrong.
In light of this rule, I regret to notice that I see very few python web frameworks worth of any attention.cazzeggio debian eng pdo rant
