How to Raise a Creative Child. Step One: Back Off

— A nice perspective. 8-)

Child prodigies rarely become adult geniuses who change the world. Originality is difficult to encourage but easy to thwart.

What are questions?

“Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go. It hits your mind and bounces right off. You have to ask the question — you have to want to know — in order to open up the space for the answer to fit.”

— Nice metaphor. 8-)

Why not offer classes?

“People will find what they want when it’s important to them. What is important is that a person knows her/himself intimately and believes s/he is capable of working hard and learning what s/he needs to succeed, however s/he defines success.”

On Being A Senior Engineer

— This seems a hard read at first: much ado about nothing that is not really worth the time. I almost abandoned it the first time, but then, started over. It is a subject I don’t often hear about, and I’m glad Avdi Grim shared it.

While I may not agree with every idea in this article, if I’d have to pick one that made me stop and think, it’s this one about making estimates:

> Promises, schedules, and estimates are necessary and important instruments in a well-ordered business. Many engineers fail to realize this, or habitually try to dodge the irksome responsibility for making commitments. You must make promises based upon your own estimates for the part of the job for which you are responsible, together with estimates obtained from contributing departments for their parts. No one should be allowed to avoid the issue by the old formula, “I can’t give a promise because it depends upon so many uncertain factors.”

I think that there's a lot of institutional knowledge in our field, especially about what makes for a productive engineer. But while there are a good deal of books in the management field about "expert" roles and responsibilities of non-technical individual contributors, I don't see too many modern books or posts that might shed light…

What Is Functional Programming?

— Another attempt to define what FP is. A good one.

(Thanks to SIGAVDI#13.)

This is my take on what functional programming really is, in a way that will make sense to a jobbing programmer just trying to Get Stuff Done. I put it to you that every function you write has two sets of inputs and two sets of outputs. Two? Only one, surely? No, two. Definitely two.
