I watched a YouTube video recently on writing a (nonfiction) book, and the vlogger was talking about this book. As an avide reader, I have been sometimes frustrated by some of the my reads’ storyline. Could this book help me?
I had to wonder. In my previous computer science positions, my coworkers were rarely computer scientist majors. They had a varied background, like chemistry, and I have myself an odd background (majored in signal processing, digital electronics and automation, then music and also a PhD in machine learning in partnership with a neuroscience lab).
In finance, lots of people are finance first and only, and they take everything at face value. Then came Epstein’s book. Could it explain what I was seeing?
It’s time for the annual review of the Lego Technic flagship, and this year Lego partnered with Liebherr for an impressive excavator.
I create a model of the Boss SD1 and the Ibanez TS9 some time ago. Now it’s time to get on modelling another pedal, the famous Boss MT2 Metal Zone.
There are many pages online that also analyse this pedal, but I’d like to start from the schema, split in independent pieces and analyze them with my Modelling Lite tool. The end result will probably end up as a new plugin, but this is currently outside the scope of this new subserie.
I’m fascinated by startup founders. These guys decided to jump in the unknown, with an idea, and they battled through adversity. They don’t always succeed, but enough do so that we think “what if I had an idea?”.
I always wondered what was wrong with me, why I needed to sleep 8 hours a day, why less than that would make me insufferable, on edge and less productive that I’d like. And then I found this book.
And it seems I’m normal.
As I’m currently thinking of creating a new app which requires a cloud service (or at least an online service 24/7), I thought about what are the long term constraints I want to have when signing up with a cloud provider. These are the topics to consider IMHO.
This question started for me when I had to handled files that could be either compressed or uncompressed and I needed to do so transparently.
If you look online, there may be only one answer to that, and it is on StackOverflow when I answered it. Here is some more context to what the answer does and what’s the problem with Boost::Iostreams.
Have you even wondered what happen in 2008 on the markets? Why did so many people lose so much money? Why did the banks need saving? Behind all crisis, there is a story, this is what this book tells.
