I read quite some RSS and articles daily, plus the ones that colleages and friends send or recommend me. Right now the ones I find most relevant/interesting I just tweet them (and they get lost after a while). As I've seen at other blogs (and used to do at a defuct website), I've been thinking about gathering those articles and posting the list among with small comments from me. So, here it comes the first batch, let's see if I keep it up:
- The scarcest resource at startups is management bandwidth: Last sentence summarizes it nicely: "The best teams are hyper focused". Should be read by anyone working at an early-stage startup.
- Command-Query Responsibility Segregation: Talk about CQRS, how relates with DDD, but mostly about why it is interesting to implement this pattern in some scenarios.
- Docker for beginners: Good intro to docker and docker-compose, I think all basic stuff is presented with step-by-step examples.
- On designing and deploying internet-scale services: Good summary full of advices (and the source it's from 2007!). Also, the Internet Scale services Checklist it's a great resource to keep at hand.
- Google Sites Import/Export: I use Google Sites for a personal (internal) wiki, and with Two-Factor Authentication on, there is no official way to export them. This opensource Java tool allows to do precisely that.
- Learning to learn: Free Coursera small course to improve your learning and concentration skills. Highly recommended, won't take you much time and has good tips.
- How I rewired my brain to become fluent in math: About how consolidation through practice and repetition can help you at complex areas like maths (as if you were practicing sports or martial arts). I'm going to try this approach in the near future.
- TomatoTimer and Tomatoi: Web-based pomodoro timer tools. Second link right now has the app broken but hopefully will come back, was useful for sharing your pomodoros with others (like teammates).
