This is a development instance of xesite. Things here are probably unfinished or in drafting. Don't take anything here super seriously. If you want to share this to an online aggregator, please don't. Drafts are not finalized yet for a reason. Please don't be the reason I need to implement more advanced security than just obscurity.

New Site Feature: Signal Boosting

Read time in minutes: 2

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been losing their jobs. In normal times, this would be less of an issue, but in the middle of the pandemic, HR departments have been reluctant to hire people as entire companies suddenly switch to remote work. I feel utterly powerless during this outbreak. I can only image what people who have lost their job feel.

I've decided to do what I can to help. I have created a page on my website to signal boost people who are looking for work. You can find it at /signalboost. If you want to be added to it, please open a GitHub issue, contact me, or open a pull request to signalboost.dhall in the root.

The schema of this is simple:

Person::{ Name = "Nicole Brennan"
        , Tags = [ "python", "go", "rust", "technical-writing" ]
        , GitLink = ""
        , Twitter = ""

This will create a grid entry on the site that looks like this:

Nicole Brennan

python go rust technical-writing

GitHub - Twitter

I've also changed my footer to point to this page for the forseeable future instead of linking to my Patreon. Thank you for reading this and please take a look at the people on /signalboost.

Be well.
