2019#17 Readings of the week

Dilluns 17 Juny 2019


NOTE: This week is a bit light on technical content because I was attending Scala Days 2019 in Lausanne and I had enough with the talks. 

NOTE: The themes are varied, and some links below are affiliate links. Software engineering, psychology, history. Expect a similar wide range in the future as well. You can check all my weekly readings by checking the tag here . You can also get these as a weekly newsletter by subscribing here.

The mindfulness conspiracy

It’s a trap!

One Diagram To Mind Them All: Hyperspace in the 1970s

The beginnings and history of mind mapping, and Tony Buzan in particular.

A tale of lost WW2 uranium cubes shows why Germany’s nuclear program failed

Splitting your efforts won’t lead to faster splitting of the atom.

Exploring Domain-Driven Design at CircleCI

DDD is an interesting concept, and knowing how companies implement it is always good. This lacks a bit of more material though.

A Year’s Worth

An interesting way of visualizing a year’s worth of technical effort, by Kent Beck.

The Making of Lemmings

I enjoy a lot tales of the dark ages of gaming. If you haven’t, read The Making of Prince of Persia (you may enjoy the “prequel”, The Making of Karateka) or Masters of Doom).

Feynman’s Breakthrough, Disregard Others!

If you focus too much in what others do, you’ll lose your uniqueness.

📚 Tribe of mentors

A book by Tim Ferris, where he quick-interviews a lot of people, asking tips. It’s a kind of a not-amusing read, because it’s not designed to be “read”, I suspect.

📚 How to Draw Fantasy Art and RPG Maps: Step by Step Cartography for Gamers and Fans

I had a lot of fun with this one. Super-readable and easy to follow.

Newsletter?

These weekly posts are also available as a newsletter. These days (since RSS went into limbo) most of my regular information comes from several newsletters I’m subscribed to, instead of me going directly to a blog. If this is also your case, subscribe by clicking here.
