The interesting thing is that Mermaid supports many standard diagrams, which you encounter today in IT like User Journey diagrams, state diagrams and sequence diagrams.

2) Happy 27th Birthday, Delphi by @dwarfland

This tweet remembers the 27th birthday of Turbo-Pascal-based Delphi IDE. This was my first programming environment after school, where I got in touch with Turbo Pascal (besides from one day bringing a virus into the school IT room).

Later I went on to learn PHP and a little bit of Java during my first IT job. Over time and on the side I learned R and Python, which is still my preferred programming environment, not last becauae of the Django and Flask framework for web applications.

3) Demo Data matters: Advice for #HRtech vendors by @vendorprisey

This blog highlights software sales, which failed due to giving the customer a very good impression, how the software would like like in their environment. “Their environment” in this case includes localized names (of fake people).

I am happy to get feedback from you!
