500tj anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci’s death
I’m using Elixir as a scripting language for the shell
Did you know that almost any shell uses the READLINE library? If using the command-line is part of your daily work you really should read Gnu Software Manual - Readline and get comfortable with it’s keys ;-)
I’m using an older iPad without the apple-pen but with a mechanical stylus (“JotPro”). My experience with wrist-protection software is that it either doesn’t work or slows down my iPad. Here is my solution …
Elixir and Nerves is fun!
A nice and easy to understand Introduction to Elixir & Nerves on a RaspberryPi. Thanks to SteveGrossi I’ll have some fun today, playing with my Raspberry.
Interview with Robert Virding and Joe Armstrong
If you know me, you know I like to get rid of stuff, to keep things simple. And today I removed sass from my project. Thanks, Lea Verou for this brilliant talk.
One of the best talks about programming languages I’ve seen this year.
Yesterday I found this on twitter.
04 Dec, 1995. Published in The Sentinel of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
Touchbar or not, use
Ctrl+[ instead of
Wow, that is cool! Although I have no touchbar, my caps-lock is configured as Ctrl-key and Ctrl+[ is much less finger moving than using the regular esc key.

Today, I wrote my first HEX-package and published it on “hex.pm”. It is an extract of my daily work and was part of an “Umbrella-App” initially.
Let's just skip all the frameworks entirely. Learn how to do the work. Learn how to apply inspect and adapt to the work itself. Learn everything (all frameworks + underlying thinking). Build your own process. Nobody excels by following a rigid set of rules by rote.— Allen Holub (@allenholub) July 4, "2018"
Home office in da sun, what could be a better place to work.
Inspired by Kat Tornwall’s talk about integration tests with Elixir and Phoenix I did some clean up in my integration tests of my current Elixir project. Look how much more readable they are now.
“Visual Studio is one of the single largest pieces of software in the world,” he (Chris Granger, a software developer who worked as a lead at Microsoft on Visual Studio) said. “It’s over 55 million lines of code. And one of the things that I found out in this study is more than 98 percent of it is completely irrelevant. All this work had been put into this thing, but it missed the fundamental problems that people faced.

Pretty well done explanation of DDD
Yesterday (2018-03-20) I attended a seminar on regulations in medical software. It gave me heebie-jeebies because it’s obvious that Uncle Bob’s fears seem to become true: law and government will tell us how to do our profession. And gosh, what they are telling us is to go back 10 years. We should not be that passionate programmer and we should swap the two sides of the Agile Manifesto again. The right side really matters much more for them ;-(
Why the f* I have to spread “Why Your Avatar Matters” everytime I join a new environment ;-)
We, as software developers, will face more and more regulatory demands. Business, government, laws will tell us how to do our work.
ThoughtWork’s new Technology Radar (Vol.17) is out. Always worth reading …
Best article about Erlang Schedulers, I found so far …
It took me some time to figure out how this combination works. Finally, it is rather easy.
Thank you, Chad Fowler @chadfowler for pointing to Glenn Vanderburg’s @glv update of his wonderful talk “Real Software Engineering”. I was fascinated by one of the early versions I saw at Rails Conf 2011 in Baltimore.
More and more people in our industrie figure out what Leonardo Da Vinci already knows hundrets of years ago: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
