Compendium of Wondrous Links vol I
As a way of collecting interesting reads across the Internet, I plan to keep a relatively regular posts with some articles and posts that I’ve read, mostly related to development, software and tech world in general.
Here it goes the first edition.
- Your Progress As A Programmer Is All Up To You
- Theory and practice Short and simple, but nice
- Every line of code is always documented Nice ways to use version control to our advantage when navigating through unknown code
- When random isn’t random enough or why randomness is a more complicated problem than it looks
- Interesting talk about different databases and distributed queries
- A 1986 Bill Gates interview about coding. It is interesting how some of the topics are still challenges today, but have been more refined, like team collaboration. Love this quote “We’re no longer in the days where every program is super well crafted.”
- Why indie developers go insane, about (but not limited) to all the Flappy Bird issue
- Nice graphic representation of version control history. Using airplanes!
- gn command for Vim. This is a very interesting new addition to my Vim lexicon
- Very good points about non-English speakers developers. Not sure if I totally buy it, at the end tech world is so predominantly english, that being able to use it is a huge win, but still interesting read.
- Being a noob programer at 38
Hope you enjoy it!
