Reduction of Noise
In order to concentrate better again, I stopped listening to music while working.
Several articles on the Internet point out that constant noise keeps my dopamine level up and distracts me from the actual work.
That makes sense to me. Because the brain, in addition to work, is also busy processing the music that is playing.
Yesterday I listened to a lot less music and I want to reduce it even more today.
DHH deciding to step away from cloud
DHH descripes in this article that his company is moving away from cloud. And I say, good for him.
I might be an old fart, but I was never able to understand why I would outsource such a vital and important part of my buiseness. I guess it is all about risks and costs. But the risk is in the hand of someone else with additional costs, and I like to be the captain of my desteny.
How to give formal feedback
How I give formal written feedback is a well written advice, which
I would love to do myself. But as usual in a company you have to comply to the format the company gives you for a better comparision.
But I really like to ask my peer in future what he wants to have feedback on. On the human relationship side it is really helpful.
Reading List Collection
Some articels I would love to read in the next week, but couldn't find the time for now:
Yesterday I took the time to read the Terrible FOSS story of core-js.
I can't even begin to understand how people come up with the idea of attacking other people in any way whatsoever.
I've had my small share of open source development and have learned that some developers in the FOSS space can be difficult. You put a lot of time and effort into something that you believe will work out to everyone's benefit, and sometimes you get criticism of some kind.
Feedback should always be factual and received factually.
Having said that, the very last thing to do is attack someone because they want money for their open source project. And I would never have gone as far as the developer of the article.
I would like to say thank you to him. Even if he could use the money better.
I do not have a hangover but the title of todays DJ mix suggests the title.
Songs that will Cure Your Hangover with Ceylan Göksel is just the thing right now. It is full of delightful riffs and drums. Just like a warm breeze on a summer morning, when you drink your coffee on the balcony. Perfect!
Shell to the Rescue
Some of my notes I write in Markdown. Now I needed to publish some of them on my webserver for easier access. So I created a quick script to transform the Markdown files into a usable html.
- At first I installed markdown on my ubuntu server.
- Then in the script I transformed the files from .md to .html
