Stats for March, 2017

Back to work this month. :) After one month vacation, I got back to my routine and got some good results this month. Books Added three more books to the list: All of them were “read” using audiobooks from Audible. I have to note here that Mastery is one of the best books I ever read. Articles I’m still trying to find a way to track the articles I read.

Stats for February, 2017

February was an atypical month because I was on vacation. :) Much of my stats will reflect my travel around Europe. But no coding was done during this trip. Books Continuing my goal to read 30 books this year, I read two books this month: I had plans to visit Amsterdam and Oxford during my travel. Because of that I decided to read the story of Kullervo, which mention a lot about J.

Stats for January, 2017

This is the first post of a series that will show all the data I’ve been collecting during the month. One of my goals this year is to track everything possible. These posts will help me to analyze all the data and may extract something for me. This is not a new idea, I’m inspired by posts like this from Matthew of truevalhalla.com. Books My goal is to read 30 books this year, so I must have an average of 2.

Oxford for Tolkien fans

TL;DR: When traveling to Europe, I decided to take 2 or 3 days to visit Oxford. I will describe how was the experience of a J.R.R. Tolkien fan there. I’m a big fan of J.R.R Tolkien. Have read most of his books, the ones released when he was still alive and other edited by Christopher Tolkien. After attending FOSDEM I decided to travel around some countries in Europe and UK.

FOSDEM survival guide

TL;DR: It was my first time at FOSDEM and it took some time to feel comfortable, this post may help newcomers. As I mentioned in my previous post, I spoke at FOSDEM this year. It was my first time there (in the whole Europe, btw!) and it took some time to get used to the way the event goes. This post will show some tips that may help FOSDEM newcomers and maybe some veterans as well.

My presentation at FOSDEM 2017

This year my proposal to speak at FOSDEM was accepted and I spoke at the Desktop devroom! :) It was my first talk in English, so I decided to do as many rehearsals as I could. I was 8 in total, but as expected, it was still a little bit faster than expected. :P I had 30 minutes to present and I did it in 26. I usually speak fast and this presentation was made to be fast because I had a lot of content to show in 30 minutes.

Escrevendo o Desconstruindo a web

TL;DR: Escrevi um livro em 315 horas, geralmente aos fins de semana durante 2 ou 3 horas consecutivas. O processo completo durou 8 meses e foi lançado oficialmente na Rubyconfbr2016. Como muitos já sabem, eu lancei um livro chamado Desconstruindo a web pela Casa do Código. Eu sou meio maluco (retardado, segundo o George Guimarães) por produtividade e organização pessoal e resolvi escrever sobre como foi o processo e mostrar todas as métricas que eu coletei.

Rubyconf 2016

TL;DR: A melhor Rubyconf que eu participei Nos dias 24 e 25 de Setembro de 2016 aconteceu a Rubyconf Brasil. Assim como eu fiz um post sobre o primeiro Rails Summit que o Akita participou da organização, resolvi também fazer um post sobre a última rubyconf que ele resolveu organizar. Essa Rubyconf teve vários pontos especialmente importantes para mim. O primeiro deles foi logo no início quando o Gilberto Mautner, que é um dos fundadores da Locaweb, mencionou os números do projeto que eu estou trabalhando por lá.

Ouvir livros (audiobooks), o futuro da leitura

TL;DR: Ouvir livros é o futuro. Quem me conhece sabe que há muito tempo eu ouço podcasts sempre que eu posso, principalmente no caminho entre a minha casa e o trabalho. No fim do ano de 2015 eu vi a quantidade de livros que o Rafael Rosa leu e fiquei abismado. Ele leu mais de 90 livros em um ano! Tudo bem que ele estava em um período sabático, mas mesmo assim ainda é uma quantidade bem absurda de livros para se ler em um ano.

Experiences of almost two years using colemak

TL;DR: I like colemak, and it is a very good layout. I found some equivalent pros and cons, so I can’t recommend it to anyone without a little bit of philosophy. :) For those who don’t know Colemak, it is a keyboard layout created to make the most used keys stay in the home row as well as make you swipe between your right and left hand. There is a keyboard layouts heatmap for you to understand the benefits of using a keyboard layout that was designed to help you to be confortable and fast when typing instead of one that helping the operator to not jam the typewriter.
