This week, I saved dozens of articles to read later on my Instapaper account. Here’s the ones that I found most interesting readings:
- Invisible unicorns: 35 big companies that started with little or no money, I found this interesting since it is something that I was starting to think about the past few weeks: the rush for innovation is gone, nowadays we seek first money, then we try to create something.
- Design your code for readability, I am a huge fan of readable code. Although I’m not perfect at it (yet?), I am always open to discuss the subject.
- Writing a Book as a Programmer, self-publishing is not only a reality, is a need for every programmer, engineer or developer. Is one of the many steps towards a successful career in tech industry in my opinion.
- Why the Most Successful Companies Think Like Sports Teams, Brazil’s culture does not recognize sport as an important discipline to self-improvement, but United States’ does. This is one thing that I admire the most about american culture: they are focused in developing teams, as nobody accomplishes nothing great alone.
- 12 More Questions to Instantly Upgrade Your Small Talk Skills, I am guilty as charged: first, I love “magic lists” posts and second, I don’t even know how to do small talk. Any help in that matter is good for me.
- I could not find a simple Gesture Detection android library, so I built one, for Android dev, this is awesome: a gesture detection library was really needed and this one looks promising.
- Big-O Explained, I start to fully understand Big-O Notation a couple months ago, and anything I can find about this I read fiercely. This blog post from DEV blog is very detailed, yet simple to understand (actually I love all posts from DEV).
Did you get the joke I made with “Back link”? Nintendo fans will understand 😅
