  • go

    The Go programming language

    Project mention: Memory Safe TLS Library Now Has AWS Crypto and FIPS | | 2024-02-29

    A collection of learning resources for curious software engineers

    Project mention: A collection of learning resources for curious software engineers | | 2024-02-19

    The inclusion of the perspective section: I think is really smart. Same for personal productivity. Two things that can dramatically change how and what you end up studying and doing with your time / life.

    I did a coding bootcamp and yeah the frontend knowledge they taught was useful, but I could have learned that online for free. Looking back, the far more valuable thing I learned was how to discipline myself and my time - that was the first time in my life I was truly disciplined and mindful in how I spent my time. I also got perspective I'd never seen before: there was some folks in my cohort that were in their 30s and 40s and undergoing career change, and I learned two things from them: First, don't stress too much, your life has much more flexibility than you might expect (this truth is borne out, they all have perfectly successful careers in their new lives as engineers), and second, make a great use of the time you have.

    Bog-standard advice we all know, but to witness it firsthand from people living it and sharing it is different. The shared article in the github is incredible:

    I often wonder why I don't see more of these sorts of articles. From watching a family member slowly die of cancer, and from reading books like "When Breath Becomes Air," I'm guessing it's some combination of exhaustion, disability, and a new set of priorities that doesn't really involve death blogging. Still, I find these kinds of writings more poignant than most things I read.

    Project mention: V Language Review (2023) | | 2024-02-24

    Their site is clearly showing the language is in beta. The V documentation also states that autofree is WIP, and to use the GC instead. This isn't a corporate created language, but looks to be a true volunteer open source effort from people around the world.

    Their community, in comparison to others, even has their discussions open and open threads for criticism[1]. These

    Project mention: What are your thoughts about gerrit? | /r/git | 2023-12-08

    Gerrit is optimized for in-house work lead by engineers who would rather be using Subversion. ("Subversion merge isn't worth using so I don't see why we need it.") It tends to be hostile to community contribution: outsiders get a second-class experience, so if community participation is your goal it's a bad choice.
