Hello, folks!

Last 2 weeks I was super busy with a lot of random stuff and now finally have time to do a quick recap about things I learned or found interesting to share with you. It’s quite hard and challenging time right now, but I hope that lessons learned during the crisis will help me better to understand myself and things around.

It’s quite hard and challenging time right now, but I hope that lessons learned during the crisis will help me better to understand myself and things around.

So let’s start,

Soft skills:

7 habits of  highly successful people – Very deep book, that helps to understand yourself and people around. Must read. Twice.

F*** You, I Quit — Hiring Is Broken  – Interesting story about interview experience of one smart guy. He shows how hiring works nowadays and why it’s broken. Classic interview pain. Helful to consider if you are looking for right people.

How a team of 4 people supports 9 projects (WARNING Article in Russian!) – Guys shared their experience, of working with Kanban and did some promo for a tool used that serve Kanban needs. Good to have a fresh look at Kanban from aside.

Being A Developer After 40 – Post captures longs years of experience in IT industry from  the point of view from one man. Nice reading, helps to see the difference between “hype” and worthful things, I wish I’d read this article earlier.

Front-end:

reBEM: React ♥ BEM – I love BEM methodology when it goes about building UI interfaces, even a bit religious, what’s not good, though. Anyway, I’m always glad to see some interesting to test tools that help to use BEM+React in cleaner and easier manner.

Browser Rendering Optimization – Udacity course that will help you to learn how to profile Web Applications and find performance issues faster.

Back-end:

Docker tutorialThe comprehensive tutorial that helps to get started with Docker and start playing around with it. Has very useful Github Gist with all the commands used in video lessons.

Slick 3 DateTime comparations done better (Slick-Joda-Mapper) – Sometimes you can’t do some things in Slick in an easy way in FP approach, like working with DateTime. Sad but true. So tried out this lib.

That’s what I’ve got for your for now. If you have some interesting books, links or ideas to share, feel free to drop a comment.

Cheers!
