Spaceship from the movie A Space Odyssey 2021 by Stanley Kubrick

The software industry is relatively young. Let’s take as a starting point the publication in 1939 of Alan Turing’s On computable numbers, with an application to the entscheidungsproblem, in which he described an imaginary computer turing machine and the program it runs. There were mechanical calculating machines, there was Charles Babbage’s analytical machine, but still, the Turing machine was the first thing that today’s programmers could describe as a computer and a program. In the 1950s, Fortran came along. The

Migration from Linux to Macbook 16″

One of the biggest things that happened to me last year was the move to Mac. After dozens of years of working with Windows, then Linux, many customizations, and convenient software that allowed me to work almost at the speed of thought, I was a little afraid that it would take a long time before I could achieve the same comfort and speed. After two months, I can confidently say that life on the mac is existing. Not always, however,

Era is gone

Era is gone

Era is gone. My old laptop is more than 10 years old. It still works well and handles most of my tasks. From other hand it deserves for retirement quite a long time. It has survived thousands of hours of work, thousands of miles of travel and flights, worked with me on dozens of projects, magistracy, processed hundreds of photos and edited dozens of videos. So, who replaced the faithful friend? I had been looking at Macs for a long

Poznań touristic guide

Poznan is a neat, comfortable, green city with its history, character, peculiar climate and coziness, and aesthetic combination of old and new. Even though the town is not very touristy, there is something to see, where to walk and what to do for at least a few days.

The Secret

For those who are not a programmer, but by the will of fate, thrown into our industry, I can share a secret: writing code is easy. The code is difficult to read and maintain, but easy to write. Writing the code is much easier than writing an essay in natural language. The programming language is primitive. Several dozen word constructions of which only a small set of what is available is used. This is why programmers are so eager to

Productivity for programmers. Editors, repositories, coding practices

Third part of my research of different tools and practices that makes us more productive. Use if you can statically typed language (TypeScript, Flow, Java, C#, C++, Kotlin, Swift, Scala, Haskel, etc). It has the hidden power of your productivity and gives you a lot of freedom to refactor your code. REST client in IntelliJ’s products and vscode allows you test requests right from the code. Learn some simple editor well (ideally vi because it’s available everywhere). Learn regular expressions

Productivity and keyboard

This is the second part of my research about productivity practices, tricks, and technics. Learn to touch-type properly. Practice with keybr.com, klavogonki.ru. Speed up your repeat rate. Set up shortcuts for commonly used apps like browser, terminal, IDE, etc. If you use multiple languages on your PC, set up a shortcut for every language or use caps lock as a language switcher. Learn shortcuts and improve your productivity. A few good places to start: cheatkeys for win, mediaatelier for mac Launchbar,
