A jazz musician friend of mine told me this:

"If you’re not the worst musician in in your band, you should immediately switch bands."

I work at Spotify.

I feel like a piece of shit programmer almost every day.

When the time comes when I no longer feel like a piece of shit programmer here, I’ll quit and move on to a place that can once again make me feel like piece of shit.

Pitch Perfect

El “Breakfast Club” de esta década.

Dos grupos de a capella (o sea usando sonidos de sus bocas en vez de instrumentos musicales) enfrentados en un campeonato universitario nacional.

Con su combinación perfecta de buenos personajes, fantástica música y el poster más malo de la historia de posters de películas malos, esta película fue una sorpresa genial y que no deja de gustarme cada vez que la veo.

En los requirements.txt de tus aplicaciones, pon la versión exacta de las bibliotecas que usas:


Si la dejas sin especificar, pip usará la última versión que encuentre y, al volver a instalar tu aplicación un año después, podría ya no funcionar por alguna actualización a esas bibliotecas (que tu no hiciste).

En los requirements.txt de tus bibliotecas, en cambio, pon la versión mínima:


O si no, cuando actualicen whatever, la tuya no podrá usarse.

Y si la la actualización a whatever rompe la compatibilidad con la tuya, definitivamente quieres enterarte.

This may come as a surprise to you, but communication is one of the most important skills to have as a programmer. The better you are at communicating, the better a programmer you are. In fact, you could even say that it’s not things, techniques, or even programming languages that get you rich, it’s people (no one got rich on their own!).
So true.

We have not wings, we cannot soar;
But we have feet to scale and climb
By slow degrees, by more and more,
The cloudy summits of our time.

The mighty pyramids of stone
That wedge-like cleave the desert airs,
When nearer seen, and better known,
Are but gigantic flights of stairs.

The distant mountains, that uprear
Their solid bastions to the skies,
Are crossed by pathways, that appear
As we to higher levels rise.

The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.

Do we have anyone who is obese on the panels? We need to ensure that the overweight population is represented – after all, almost 36% of people in the United States are obese. Surely that same percentage is represented in speaker pitches.
Be prepared to eventually see a checkbox on the speaker pitch forms asking you about your sexual orientation too. We need to make sure members of the GLBT community are included on each panel as well
Do we not see the problem here?
