Technology didn’t make our lives better, it simply changed what we can accomplish, but it seems, humans are still very much like we were 100 year ago:
Greedy, Selfish, Looking to impress, Wanting to do good, Doing good and so the list goes on.
We now only have better tools. Tools that allow us to do more harm and more good. But this is just more of the same. More of what we’ve always been doing. More harm but also more good.
They say it is exactly the same with money. Money doesn’t make you bad or good it just amplifies who you already are. Money gives you more options, but which ones you choose largely depend on who you are.
It all balances out in the end. We should not look to technology to make our lives better, we should look at how we treat the people who can do nothing for us. That is who we are. If we can better that, we can better ourselves.
The craze around microservices is great, but starting small and simple is the best use of our limit time, specially when starting a new project, More on this from the link below:
I see go channels as a pipe connecting two air tight vacuum cleaners. One vacuum cleaner can not push anything into the pipe, if the other vacuum is not pulling from the pipe. Both need to do the opposite action. If one sends the “package” will be stuck until the other turns on it’s receiving action.
Channels can contain multiple slots for “holding” the “packages”.
Pushing more into the pipe than wha the pipe can handle results in a broken pipe.
I also think of it as a queue, first in, first out ( last in last out ). The only difference is this one is ultra sensitive and very particular.

After periods of intensity I find myself automatically collapse into a slower period, a period where I feel very unproductive. This was very frustrating as I feel like, you know you can do more, but you’re just not getting to it.
After a few of these instances I realised that this is normal. This is a natural cadence that one has to work with. Just like you can’t your muscles flexed indefinitely so you can’t function at your peak continuously, without taking the time out needed for recovering and recouping your strength.
I hope to settle into a 3 month on and a few days off after that. I know keeping all your leave for the big days sounds very exciting, but I think it’s better for you to take it in snippets throughout the year, maximising the weekends and other holidays.
Skill stacking is a strategy that you can use to achieve career success. You can use it whether you want to build a business or have a dream job.

We don’t think we have constraints as Software Engineers, but we actually do. Creating specifications is a great way to explore some of these constraints. See the full talk below by Kris Brandow at GopherCon 2018.

Let me tell you the story of two investors, neither of whom knew each other, but whose paths crossed in an interesting way….
…. Some people are born into families that encourage education; others are against it. Some are born into flourishing economies encouraging of entrepreneurship; others are born into war and destitution. I want you to be successful, and I want you to earn it. But realize that not all success is due to hard work, and not all poverty is due to laziness. Keep this in mind when judging people, including yourself.
