    Repository for general Typelevel information, activity and issues (by typelevel)

    The "progressive types" that are abusing and harassing people for years now for little to no reason, including simply contributing to a hugely successful library because they have a personal crusade against the original creator. The author of this post in particular has recently been accused of stalking and make a PoC woman fear for her safety in Berlin (where they both live) https://github.com/typelevel/general/issues/112, to which he gaslighted her and attempted (with success, apparently) to have the complaint removed https://github.com/typelevel/general/issues/113. He's also well known for doxxing and defaming people

  • ZIO

    ZIO — A type-safe, composable library for async and concurrent programming in Scala

    The first point is about a fucking conference in 2016, in which the organizer invited several people with a process (and thoughts) explained here https://degoes.net/articles/lambdaconf-controversy aimed at being blind to sex/religion/political views etc. He repeatedly stated to be in a strong disagreement with "white supremacist" views and the such. The first words of the ZIO's code of conduct are precisely about that btw https://github.com/zio/zio/blob/master/docs/about/code_of_conduct.md, and zio follows the scala code of conduct. You can agree or disagree about whether "allowing that person, selected in the way described above (without any preference at all for white supremacists of course), to speak precisely about one particular topic and only if they adhere to the code of conduct" is "giving them a platform to share their ideas", but even if you do think that the first approach is completely wrong, it's a pretty big jump from here to accuse the person holding that view (actually a less-strong version of it) of being a white supremacist themselves and the same of all people that associate with that person (the organizer) and stalk and harass them for years on end

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • cancel-culture

    Tools for fighting abuse on Twitter

    The OP is one of the most dedicated proponents of the Cancel Culture. Seriously: he made cancel-culture app. I'm interpreting his post, as a reaction to the recent events (the pushback), and an attempt to reach for wider audience.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
