Just in case: as a reminder to me, to balance yesterday’s post on good debt. ;-)

“The only way to go fast, is to go well.” — somehow this makes a lot of sense to me.

You have joined a new startup. You are a multi-talented mega-being. You can work 60, 70, 80 hours per week to get the job done. You are a top-notch coder and designer. You won't fall...

One of the recent episodes of Developer Tea podcast I’ve heard a somewhat funny, and still profound quote of Jean-Luc Godard on originality:

“It’s not where you take things from — it's where you take them to.”

#originality #inspiration #quote

In today's episode, I talk about the importance of synthesis to the process of creating novel things. I also discuss our obsession with originality and "creating from nothing." Today's episode is sponsored by DigitalOcean. Go to https://digitalocean.com to get started, and use the promo code ...

My own hackathon: day 1/14

I took 14 days off from my day job to try build an app that I was thinking about for some time. Yesterday was my day 1. :)

Just in case: if you need to pipe you 300M codebase from on machine to another, here is a quick way:

tar zcvf - src/breakout | ssh 172.16.230.135 "tar fxz -"

All about “technical debt” in plain English. “Sometimes early user feedback is higher priority than technical quality.” — Really good point.

#programming #technical #debt

http://blog.crisp.se/2013/10/11/henrikkniberg/good-and-bad-technical-debt
Technical Debt is usually referred to as something Bad. One of my other articles The Solution to Technical Debt certainly implies that, and most other articles and books on the topic are all about how to get rid of technical debt. But is debt always bad? When can debt be good?

My own hackathon: day 2/14

I wasn’t very productive on day 2. I have burned the first half of the day trying to write the least meaningful test and failed.

The IODA Architecture

— One quality that I liked about this worldview is its “reductionism”: it reduces the number of kinds of concepts. I find this is similar to the phenomenon that “Uncle Bob” Martin spoke about in his “The Last Programming Language” talk a few years ago.

The common architectural patterns are all pretty much the same. Layered architecture, MVC, Hexagonal architecture, Onion Architecture, Clean architecture… they all do two things: Define domains of responsibility; Put functional dependencies in order. Look at these depictions of some of the ...

My new notion of web app

One of my side projects that I’ve been toying with, is a productivity app for bailiffs. And since I’m reading “Lean Customer Development” by Cindy Alvarez, a few days ago I went with my partner to interview a bailiff.
