As my selection of what to learn grows, I think there will be a change of plans and priorities. It's time to narrow down what is essential.

Currently, I am learning Rust, and will do some Go. This added more and more of my to-do list of learning things.

And it became unproductive§

My attention span on learning stuff were getting lower and lower to a point, I need to reassess which and which are not to learn.

Here are the list of things I need to do

  • Setting aside System Administration
  • Setting aside Kanidm
  • Setting aside Crystal

They're really not set aside. I can go back to them in the future if I have the time.

Crystal is good, why not keep it?§

Sadly, only a few companies I know use Crystal. 😥 Even though it's actually a more useful language to learn and can replace Go.

Now what should I learn§

Rust will always stay. Erlang will stay. Go is added. Python will be revisited. And one database? I'm planning to at least learn one but never got the chance to. Possibly, Postgres or MySQL.

Why Erlang?§

Concurrency. Also, some of Go's ideas are taken from Erlang so I also need to check those as well.

Why Python?§

It's not hard to relearn. I just need to revisit it. It's good for scripts and prototyping.

Why Rust?§

Because blazingly 🚀🚀🚀 fast 😜

What now?§

Yes. I am going to watch Learn Go in 3 hours from a Humble Bundle I got last year. And then read Thorsten Ball's Writing an Interpreter in Go. I will check out Erlang's language reference too ☺️

Copyleft licenses are not “restrictive”

One may observe an axis, or a “spectrum”, along which free and open source software licenses can be organized, where one end is “permissive” and the other end is “copyleft”. It is important to acknowledge, however, that though copyleft can be found at the …

What Precious Things Does The Corporate World Steal From Us?

It has been about a year and a half of working three days a week in response to burnout. It took me six months to regain the ability to do anything beyond resting the moment I was done working, and in the past year I have recovered much of my ability to fu…
