Steal a College Education

— A really good episode from Trav and Los. They’re discussing about what to do when you know what you want to learn something, but you don’t know how to go about it, where to start or improve. Their advice sounds trivial, but at the same time so practical.

“[…] the structure is what you need, not how to learn it.” — very profound.

(I started picking a lot of quotes, but I think they will say it much better.)

The Codeless Code

— profound thoghts on code in an entertaining monk-style format. And as any profound thought, it surely applies beyond code.

“You cannot flip a brain from zero to one simply by praising the one. You must start at the zero, extoll its virtues, explore its faults, exhort your listeners to look beyond it. To weigh the zero against the one, the listener must have both in mind together. Only when they have freely chosen the one will they abandon the zero.”

Just in case: there is just too much useful information here, and I’m posting it so that I have it handy for myself, and, maybe, someone else will find it useful too. ;-)

My today’s view on code

This morning I have finished watching a course on Frontend Masters. It’s called “Hardcore Functional Programming in JavaScript.” Functional programming (FP) is interesting to me. I think it’s partly because I hear people speaking very passionately about it. It’s like an exotic thing that I don’t completely understand, but I’m curious to find out what it is.

He’s a calm lake: seems shallow, but goes deep if you dive. The water is clear: there is light and clarity even at intimate depths. The sandy beach is comfortable to the bare foot. Go take a walk: http://travisneilson.com.

He thinks a lot. Sometimes he shares the insights. If you want to hear them he has a newsletter at http://travisneilson.com/notes.

Just in case: play with React on jsfiddle.net

— although this was published 2 years ago, I just found about it a couple of weeks ago and I found it very handy to poke at React with quick snippets just to get a better understanding of how it works.
