You are what you document
Hey, grab a seat - we need to talk about documentation. Now, I know what you're thinking: documentation is tedious, a chore, an afterthought, a redundant source of information given your beautiful, self-documenting code. It's just like a good diet and exerc...

the worst trap you can find yourself into is invest time into project with good documentation and horrific implementation. read the CODE! if you need docs to follow the CODE, think again!

Node.js vs Play Framework
Here's the showdown you've been waiting for: Node.js vs Play Framework . Both are popular open source web frameworks that are built for developer productivity, asynchronous I/O, and the real time web. But which one is easier to learn, test, deploy, debug, a...

The Saga Of The Stank
My hand is over my mouth, my eyes are watering, and I'm trying to hold my breath, but every few seconds, my throat tries to turn itself inside out. Most smells, after a little while, fade into the background -- you become desensitized and can no longer dete...

Don't learn to code. Learn to think.
It seems like everyone is trying to learn to code: Code.org has celebrities like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Chris Bosh telling you anyone can code; CoderDojo's are springing up all over the country; the UK has made it part of their official curriculum...

As a teacher in the UK I get this post completely - the drive for every child to 'code' appears to be the only thing that matters. Your post puts it into perspective and by asking us to concentrating on thinking.
Thanks for sharing this post +Yevgeniy Brikman

Hackers are the animals that can detect a storm coming or an earthquake. They just know, even though they don’t know why, and there are two big things hackers are excited about now and can’t articulate why – Bitcoin and 3D printing. Paul Graham, Wall Street...
