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 ☺️

Articles from blogs I follow around the net

Agile is a tainted term

Oh no, not another agile article. But at least this one isn't attempting to teach or reconcile. I'm not going to talk about the difference between agile and Agile™ nor will I try to convince you of my favorite flavor of Agile™. Instead, I'm here to assert …

You Must Read At Least One Book To Ride

Two things are true. The first is going to sound bad in a culture where engineers are encouraged to apologize for existing while it is totally acceptable for a grifter that can't code to insist that they're a "thought leader". It is that, in my immediate p…

Code injection or backdoor: A new look at Ivanti’s CVE-2021-44529

This is yet another, “Ron got nerdsniped by a thing and wasted enough time that he needs something to show for it” blog. Which, come to think of it, are pretty much all my blogs. :) Recently, a tweet from Steven Seeley (ϻг_ϻε) caught my eye - an exploit fo…
