On Learning

Of course, this is a work in progress…

Life lessions, mostly from my dad.

  • Do the things that are hard.
  • Do what scares you.
  • Read books.
  • Question everything.
  • And think for yourself.
  • Be skeptical of authority.

About computers and programming.

  • Remember your ABCs (Always Be Coding)!
  • Read source code and man pages and RFCs and docs and papers.
  • Use the command line.
  • Study data structures and algorithms.
  • Learn a systems programming language (if a frontend developer).
  • Get to know your tools intimately.
  • Know Unix.
  • Know TCP/IP.
  • Know public key cryptography.
  • Use Vim :)

The End.
