What do the new book by Andy Weir and debugging of legacy apps have in common? If we ignore the fact that Andy is a former software engineer who successfully became a successful writer (somebody’s wet dream came true), and hence my admiration, there’s something else in play here. To be clear, I absolutely […]
Would you be surprised to learn that acquiring new knowledge becomes much harder once you go past your mid-20s? Specifically, the number seems to reside around 25th mark. Nobody has a definite WHY, but there seem to be multiple factors at play. One, which is rather obvious, is […]
I’m the most chaotic and unorganized person ever. Seriously. Give me an unknown task and, deep down, I go full blown hazard. Favorite example is my manager making a request to provide a timeline and plan to do X, where X is usually something that I have no faintest idea about. Gotta admit that […]
