November is ending!!!
I haven't been very prolific in terms of writing this month. I feel this is an absolute negative phase for me after JSConf China and I don't really feel like writing or speaking.
I did put in a lot of thoughts into coding, though, partially thanks to reporting to a lead with high standards. I still cannot evaluate my code, but at least I'm now comfortable to bring it for discussions:
I've also posted my parsing of Dan's discussion "point me to a book" that accidentally caught some attention and here's the notes:
Then for the remaining of this month I've been reading two books from the list above, Code and Game Programming Patterns.
Code is a book about how computer works. But what's really really special about this book is that it explains all the things from complete scratch. How scratch? Think flash lights as signals, to Braille and Morse code, to the base 2 number system. Then to light bulbs, to wiring electronic boards, to logic gates with boolean algebra, ...and lots of interesting content omitted to not spoil you. Bonus: it explained where the verb "code" came from.
Game Programming Patterns is incredibly patient and intuitive. I'm still working in progress on building my joycon, which essentially is a gamepad, and so I have a lot to learn.
