🔗 Instapaper Sunday, July 16th: Zen of programming, Lessons on bootcamp, Pull requests

Software Engineering & Travel Journal

Zen and the art of programming: “It’s the journey, not the destination”. Rodney Ringler will explain why we, as software engineers, should focus on get the phase we are working on of a project done, instead of overlook how long would take to finish the project itself, as a program is never really finished: it is a living organism.

5 Lessons My Bootcamp Didn’t Teach Me: Kim Hart lands some great lessons she didn’t learn in her bootcamp. The advices I liked the most are landing a great job is a marathon, not a sprint and a well-worded LinkedIn does not make up for poor performance in a technical interview.

Surfacing Hidden Change to Pull Requests: Jake Wharton put some light on hidden changes in every pull request. Programming frequently deals in visible changes: the logic in your code, the dependencies you declare, the API you expose. There is, however, quite a bit of associated hidden change: transitive dependencies, generated code, and manifest files. 

Scientists Upload a Galloping Horse GIF Into Bacteria With Crispr: I posted on LinkedIn the other day this link. It is incredible news for the society we were able to do that. Of course, the joke on adding a GIF is well thought since it will increase vitality of the post, but the technology behind this fact is amazing.

The Genius Problem-Solving Method Elon Musk Learned From Aristotle: David Straus present his First Principle Thinking to solve a problem or find the solution to a problem, in four steps. With this principle, you forget what has been, you erase what is assumed, and ask questions based on your desire for what is possible.

The Internet is Fucked (Again): Net neutrality is at risk, again. Nilay Patel will explain the current state of things at US and I am pretty sure this will have a ripple effect all over the world.

DoNotPay launches 1,000 new bots to help you with your legal problems: I always thought legal advice (or law itself) is a confusing topic. But this idea is very promising: there is a latent need on simplifying things and what else in our age need simplification and clarity other than law? I’m following this story closely.
