Skipped ehem a few weeks (I can blame one on my birthday).
NOTE: The themes are varied, and some links below are affiliate links. Data engineering, software engineering, Python, work stuff, formal methods. Expect a similar wide range in the future as well. You can check all my weekly readings by checking the [tag here](https://www.mostlymaths.net/search/label/ReadingsOfTheWeek, Readings). You can also get these as a weekly newsletter by subscribing here.
How Segment sped up its serving systems by using shared SQLite. Also opens up the idea of using SQLite files as data interchange files. Mentioned elsewhere (SQLite’s docs?), using it to store machine learning models, for instance. Interesting, isn’t it?
The expected classics. If you have never played Nine Men Morris (it’s quite unknown in many places), give it a go, is quite fun. Also, Tablut/Hnefatafl varieties are super-fun (and good-looking). And Backgammon, a more “modern classic”.
My partner is a pro knitter, and explained me these situations in real time (they were somehow close in time with some stuff happening in the Scala community I was explaining her). As I have said before, groups of humans always end up creating turmoil.
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.
