In a series on this website we’ll entertain YOU with our picks - or: what we think is worth sharing - every week. Books, articles, gems, fun stuff… you’re in for an eclectic mix! So, here’s for the one-hundred-seventy-fifth edition:
- How do you decide what to work on? - Julia Evans on coming up with a focus at work.
- The Imposter’s handbook - A book for “self-taught developers who have never taken the time to learn foundational concepts”.
- CloudFlare, SSL and unhealthy security absolutism - Security is not an absolute state, it’s always relative. And any improvements to it are beneficial.
- The “network partitions are rare” fallacy
- The Underestimated Merits of Copying Someone Else’s Work - Copying other’s work can be a useful learning tool. Just don’t claim the copied work as your own.
- mruby CLI - Forget about Go, build native commandline apps in Ruby and ship them as a binary.
- Deoptimizing Ruby - What’s this thing about “deoptimizing” and what role does Truffle play in it?
- Examining The Internals Of The Rails Request/Response Cycle - What people call “Rails magic”.
