On time this week. Nothing remarkable: I’m winding down a bit my reading (both articles and books) in preparation for the yearly review and having some cooldown period.
NOTE: General software engineering, possible tools, property based testing, Airflow, chemistry. Expect a similar wide range in the future as well. You can check all my weekly readings by checking the tag here. You can also get these as a weekly newsletter by subscribing here.
Prompted by a tweet by Hillel Wayne about Twine, I’ve been wondering about potential documentation/tech related stuff uses for either Twine or Ink. I’ve used Ink for a while, and has interesting potential.
More PBT goodness. It’s better in Scala or Haskell, since they have stronger typing. But well, you can do some fun with Python. Ignore the “scientific code” part in the title, you can do this for any code base.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Phoenix Project. I expected more in this one, and it almost delivers. I would have liked it somewhat better without needing the Rich Hickey/Clojure kool aid. I like functional programming (Scala for ages, learning Haskell) and Lisp in general (it was my second programming language, and I have written Common Lisp and Scheme in the past), but nothing is the end-all-be-all, and if something is, I don’t think it’s Clojure.
These weekly posts are also available as a newsletter. These days (since RSS went into limbo) most of my regular information comes from several newsletters I’m subscribed to, instead of me going directly to a blog. If this is also your case, subscribe by clicking here.
