Procrastination is the art of [...]
So during my free time i usually prefer to dive in reading tech literature, most of it from Hacker News (with this style extension to avoid the horrible design) and Reddit (mostly subreddits via RSS/feedly). In the tech side read mostly about programming languages, frameworks, software engineering and programming techniques, databases, compilers, text editors, cloud computing and virtual machines, processors and hardware architectures, operating systems and devops, networking, security, design, UX and any other random stuff that appears in those web pages and i think it's worth checking.
In the long term i think it's not a very good tactic, because i learn about tons of stuff, but since i don't go deep with any of them unless i can do it at work, i'm not particularly good at any of them. But hey, i do all this research as a hobby, i really like it and for now i think it's really OK.
So what i'll try to do is write a "technological procrastination" series of posts about random i thinks i find interesting around so at least i have something to write about :-)
- WordPress >= 4.1 has a distraction free writing mode for posts.
- “What happens when you type Google.com into your browser and press enter?” is an old question that was asked to interviewees in Google's interview processes. Someone has opened a GitHub repo where anyone can contribute to answer this question in depth, and there are many pull requests ready to merge.
