Happy Sunday! Welcome to another edition of BRUNCH.
Here’s what’s crossed my radar lately:
- REFLECT: on what it means to show up as a developer.
- BE REMINDED: of the fundamental value of isolated tests, by J. B. Rainsberger.
- LEARN: why achieving a perfectly optimized coding workspace may be counter-productive.
- WATCH: Tiffany Conroy speak on how to make authentication less painful for users.
- READ: About what it’s like to preserve computing history (in this case, Apple II software history).
Here’s what I’ve been up to:
- I posted a list of three books on object-oriented design that I think are worth reading.
- For RubyTapas subscribers, I uploaded an episode demonstrating how you can use pure Ruby to write a platform-agnostic version of the UNIX
whichcommand. In the process, you’ll learn about Ruby’s various facilities for OS-agnostic file path manipulation.
Have a great week,
