Why Not Go (Golang) There? 15 Feb 2015. While there are a LOT of things I really like about the Go language, the bottom line is that I don't use it (mostly because when I studied it the libraries were kind of scarce, something that's apparently changed a lot).

(I've been rather absent from here lately, working on the now-complete  Second Edition of Atomic Scala . However, more programming-oriented projects are in the queue so posts here might be spotty). Here's a nice article on Holacracy . When I took the traini...

Abusing Unlimited Vacation
Unlimited vacation time has become quite the rage among companies. What's happened? Have industrial-age companies suddenly seen the light and realized the benefits of treating employees really well? As you might guess, the answer is no. It turns out that so...
