Are you a windows user and programmer and are interested in helping with #inkscape ? I'm looking for someone to help with a small windows development task which has become stuck without a windows dev.

We need folks who lived in NZ until there were at least 7, are over 18, have lived away from NZ for at least a year, live in UK/Aus, and who can't hold a basic conversation in te reo Māori. You'll receive a small thank you voucher from GiftPay. Please DM me if you can help! (2/2)

@jbhay sez:

Living in NZ and being exposed to the language, gives you some implicit knowledge of te reo Māori. But how long does this last when you leave?  If you are a NZer currently living in the UK or Aus, please help us find out by doing our short online experiment! (1/2)

Huh - interesting thing just popped up on my timeline: Looks like Google have realised they're not converting users... I'm going to continue leaving Google, because otherwise, I'm just setting myself up for annoyance as they do other things to 'convert' me to a paying customer.

I'm a kindergarten coder. I'm mucked around with very some simple BASIC, Pascal, C#, and Python, I know the bare bones of Bash, and I once learned enough Git to be dangerous. If I want to earn a living from programming, what are the essential skills and knowledge I'd need to spend some time learning to be useful to an employer?
