Technology and empathy can intersect, as proven by the choices of our full-stack developer, Michał Zbytniewski. This month he singled out the open-source and charity projects that will receive our financial support. Prettier, a code formatting tool, and Compassion in World Farming, an animal protection organization, may seem unrelated, but both slightly improve the world.
Let’s examine how Prettier’s approach to code formatting and Compassion in World Farming’s efforts are making a difference in their respective fields.
Prettier is a popular and widely used code formatting tool. It helps developers maintain consistent and clean code styles across their projects. It formats code automatically, regardless of the programmer’s preferences or personal coding style.
When using Prettier, developers can spend less time manually formatting their code. Instead, Prettier analyzes the code and automatically applies predefined rules to format it consistently.
‘We use it in many front-end projects. Literally, with the click of a button, every developer on the team, regardless of experience level and the editor used, can boast professional-looking, readable, and stylistically consistent code’, Michał adds.
Prettier improves code readability and minimizes potential errors by enforcing a consistent style. Overall, Prettier simplifies the code formatting process, saves time, and helps maintain a clean and professional code base.
Compassion in World Farming
Compassion in World Farming is a global non-profit organization dedicated to improving the welfare and treatment of animals in the agricultural industry. Founded in 1967, it advocates for ethical and sustainable farming practices, putting animal welfare, the environment, and human health first. The organization works for a world where people treat farmed animals with compassion and respect.
CIWF aims to end factory farming and promote humane and sustainable farming systems. The organization conducts research, investigations, and campaigns to raise awareness about issues related to intensive farming practices and their harmful effects. CIWF works closely with governments, companies, and consumers to encourage policy changes, legislative reforms, and industry standards that support animal welfare.
CIWF also provides guidance and resources to farmers to help them transition to more humane and sustainable farming practices.
‘I’m counting on the organization’s work on publicizing the problems of industrial animal agriculture, education, and introducing appropriate regulations to reduce the negative environmental impact of animal agriculture,’ Michał concludes.
