Notes for week 18 of 2021
I finally decided to pursue old errands, leaving less time for anything else. The trend will continue next week. I am happy about it: I finally unblocked annoying fixes that were bothering me for a while.
I was still moving forward with the Graveyard, although a lot of time was spent dissecting the old access control model. Turns out the codebase partially supported two different models at the same time in a refactor attempt that was never finished. I have fun times achieving compatibility with a new version.
- I’ve walked 13 km and rode 105 km. I’ve been active for 10.6 hours during 10 activities. This week’s max speed was 57.2 km/h.
- Chilling analysis of Google and FB market power grab
- Django surprises are just data repetitions™
- I’ve been also debugging fun database spikes
Recommended Readings From This Week
- Domain Modeling Made Functional - Scott Wlaschin: Mostly an F# ad, but it demonstrates neatly when are types useful. I generally prefer dynamic typing, but exactly because most mainstream type systems are not as useful as this one.
- Silicon Valley’s Safe Space: Article that spawned controversy around Scott and his two blogs. The framing language really bothers me, but I do get some of the someoints.
- Points of view: Color blindness: Color palette for blind people
- @loopuleasa mental models [shared note]: Overview of various shared models
