I'm sorry

Yesterday I made a mistake. Without thinking, I put up a mean tweet about some code that Heather Arthur wrote. And I want to apologize.

I value being supportive. And I value being nice. I have thoughts around code, but they are all trumped by my strong belief that we should be working to bring each other up. Yesterday I went against all of those things, and I am ashamed. There are constructive ways to talk about code, but I did not use them. I will be thinking more strongly about these ways and how to use them in the future.

It is easy to forget that people write code. But it is important that we don't forget that. Writing code is easy, putting it out in front of the world isn't.

So, I'm sorry, Heather. There is no excuse for what I wrote.
