I write about technical leadership, mentoring, and hiring.
Summer is over and it’s time for a short August update:
My MacBook Pro has died and I had to buy a new one. Installing and configuring Mac manually is for non-programmers, that’s why I created a bunch of scripts that do everything for me. In this repository, you can see how I configure Mac, what software I use and also download my favourite coding font – Dank Mono :-)
Books that I finished reading:
📚 Game Programming Patterns – a good book that covers basic GoF and OO patterns in the game development context. If you read GoF patterns and some good OOP book – skip it. If you are new to the topic, read it.
📚 The Simple Path to Wealth – a friend recommended me this book. This is the most practical and down-to-earth book on retirement planning and investment I have read (and I read quite a few). The true power of investment is in simplicity. Highly recommended.
📚 Quit Like a Millionaire – despite a dumb name, it’s an excellent book about financial independence and early retirement (FIRE). It’s written by computer engineer couple Kristy and Bryce, who have retired in their early 30s.
