Let’s go for my web review for the week 2023-46.
Tags: tech, blender, 3d
Yet another very impressive release for Blender. This is really one of the best in its class.
Tags: tech, france, surveillance
Welcome in France, a country scared of its own population where the police uses facial recognition illegally. But don’t worry, we can expect attempts to make it legal in the coming months or years instead of addressing the problem. Will it make it less shameful? I don’t think so.
Tags: tech, politics, law
This is going to be interesting to see how this new regulation unfolds. Its impacts are well beyond just Microsoft.
Tags: tech, dns, privacy
Excellent, looks like a public DNS server worth using.
Tags: tech, dns
Now that they’re standardized better learn about those new record types.
Tags: tech, protocols, standard, security
Finally a standardized protocol for end-to-end encryption! Let’s see where this gets used.
Tags: tech, ai, machine-learning, design, architecture
A balanced view, that’s refreshing. Indeed we see too many “let’s call the OpenAI APIs and magic will happen”. This is very short sighted, much better can be done.
Tags: tech, google, infrastructure
Half a rant but interesting… Why are people making popular solutions to problems they’ll never have? Just because it’s been released by Google?
Tags: tech, blog
I admit I miss webrings indeed. They were great to discover new blogs with nice content.
Tags: tech, tools, developer-experience
Definitely looks interesting. Might be a good way to uniformize developer environment management across projects.
Tags: tech, rust
This is a well balanced view on the Rust ecosystem as of today. It highlights fairly well where it shines (safety, predictability, bugs found early) but it also mentions the current issues linked to its maturity.
Tags: tech, tools, command-line, json
Looks like a very good tool for handling JSON files. Might come in handy next to jq… maybe it’ll replace jless.
Tags: tech, command-line, tools
Good list of tips and aliases. Might inspire a few changes in your setup.
Tags: tech, tools, git
Ever wondered how git implements cherry-pick and revert? Here are a good way to understand them. Also explains what is the 3-way merge git uses widely.
Tags: tech, optimization
Not in full agreement with this, but having a rough idea of the different leverages you can use for optimizations is worthwhile.
Tags: tech, debugging, web, browser
A few interesting tricks in there, the web platform definitely helps in term of tooling.
Tags: tech, bug, debugging, system, unix
Interesting subtle differences between gzip and Python expectations which leads to a tough integration bug to find.
Tags: tech, programming
Interesting heuristic to improve code structure. I definitely recommend. As every heuristic it’s not a law though, don’t overdo it either.
Tags: tech, design, tdd, craftsmanship, quality
Good summary that TDD is many things… it helps for quite a few dimensions of writing code, still, it’s not a magic bullet in term of design. Your software design abilities are crucial to practice it well.
Tags: tech, engineering, productivity, leadership, tech-lead
Interesting list. Definitely good things to try to learn there.
Tags: tech, organization, consistency, autonomy
This is a constant trade-off to find. How in organizations give autonomy while ensuring some consistency? A couple of ideas.
Tags: management, decision-making
Yes, seen this kind of imprecise requests go wrong fairly quickly more than once. It requires constant awareness though, on both sides of each request. This can be taxing, so no wonder we often drop the ball.
Interesting taxonomy on how to request things from people. Lot’s to mull over in there.
Tags: management, trust
Good piece, this is indeed essential in managing others. If they can’t trust you then fear will ensue.
They really outdid themselves this time. One hour of bliss, it’s really well done.
Bye for now!
