I just finished reading Robert C. Martin’s book “The Clean Coder”.

Although it has “code” in its name, this book teaches little about the code. It tackles the other, much more important part of any coder: the person. If you feel like the programmers are unfairly regarded by the other people, or misunderstood in some ways, this book can explain some of the reasons and teach you a way out.

So deep, and still heartbreakingly sad. And then so happy. :)

Mousetrap - Keyboard shortcuts in Javascript

— “A simple library for handling keyboard shortcuts in Javascript.”

Mousetrap is a standalone library with no external dependencies. It weighs in at around 1.9kb minified and gzipped and 3.5kb minified.

For modifier keys you can use shift, ctrl, alt, option, meta, and command.

Other special keys are backspace, tab, enter, return, capslock, esc, escape, space, pageup, pagedown, end, home, left, up, right, down, ins, and del.

Any other key you should be able to reference by name like a, /, $, *, or =.

Risky Play: Why Children Love It and Need It | Psychology Today

“The story is both ironic and tragic.
We deprive children of free, risky play, ostensibly to protect them from danger, but in the process we set them up for mental breakdowns.
Children are designed by nature to teach themselves emotional resilience by playing in risky, emotion-inducing ways.
In the long run, we endanger them far more by preventing such play than by allowing it. And, we deprive them of fun.”

— A long interesting reading for parents.

Spotify Engineering Culture - part 1 on Vimeo

An interesting organizational model and a good recipe of collaboration and autonomy:

“It’s kind of like a jazz band: although each musician is autonomous, and plays its own instrument, they listen to each other and focus on the whole song together.”

It seems to me that what makes a model like this possible from the technical point of view, is a clear product vision: if you have that, it’s easier to reason about the higher level structure of the system and come up with intelligent ways of split it it into independently developable and deployable units, which, then allow for autonomy.

“Trust is more important than control.”

Bravo Spotify.
