• Review of Tolkien's Ordinary Virtues book Jan 28, 2021

    Book: Tolkien’s Ordinary Virtues, by Mark Eddy Smith. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️. I’m a big fan of Tolkien (if you follow me or my blog, you probably already know that) and decided to give a chance to this one even knowing it was totally related to religion and it’s not my thing anymore. The book is about Christian comparisons between The Lord of the Rings and some virtues shown in the Bible. I know talking took his Catholic religion very seriously and was even raised by a Priest after his mother passed away, so it would be nice to see the book again through these lenses.

  • Um mês de um PJ para o exterior Jan 9, 2021

    Esse é o último post que eu tinha planejado para a série de PF & PJ. Não necessariamente será o último da série, mas toda essa série começou para eu poder fazer esse post. 😄 Eu gostaria de mostrar como é o ciclo de um mês trabalhando como PJ para o exterior, já que isso ainda é uma incognita para muita gente e várias vezes eu explico isso para amigos que pretendem entrar na mesma ideia.

  • Chrome: Invalid HTTPS in development Dec 17, 2020

    It’s not the first time I had to use HTTPS for local development and had to do the whole setup of self-signed certificates. It’s a painful process that doesn’t have a good ROI for the developer. One day, after being sick of doing this every time, I decided to do some research for an easy way to workaround this. That was when I found the thisisunsafe hack. If you’re using Chrome (or chromium) you can type thisisunsafe when you access your development app complaining about HTTPS certificates.

  • Review of Daily Rituals: How Artists Work Dec 16, 2020

    Book: Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I just read the book When and it mentioned this book. The idea was so interesting that I decided to give it a try. What first caught my attention was the pattern of the peak, through, rebound everywhere. It’s not everywhere because we’re just mentioning artists here. I believe a similar pattern tends to emerge whenever people have control over their time.

  • GitHub CLI (a.k.a gh) Dec 15, 2020

    The GitHub CLI is been a major time saver for me. I was skeptical about its usage in the beginning but it proved to be very useful. Cloning When I want to download a new repository, instead of typing the whole URL or going to the browser to find the repository, I just type: gh repo clone name-of-the-repository It works out of the box if the repo is mine.

  • Rust, LotR, and focus Dec 1, 2020

    💡 Quick thought post. A bigger tweet but on my own platform. I’m co-authoring a book about Rust and was reviewing an example about enums. My plan was to use some sort of reference to J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy world (because I really like it). I was considering using something like this: enum Race { Elf, Dwarf, Men, Hobbit, Ent } PS: I’m only considering the free-peoples of middle earth for this enum.

  • Testing a promicro Nov 9, 2020

    A lot happened since my last post and all parts are already here! 😃 It was expected that I would not have that much time to work on the keyboard when all the parts arrive, this will be a long journey. The only thing that I wanted to do as soon as possible was to check if the products were in a good condition. These are cheap parts coming from China in a month-long journey, so it’s important to check if they are working as expected while I still can open a dispute with the seller if something is wrong.

  • PJ optante do Lucro Presumido Nov 8, 2020

    Nesse quarto post da série de PF & PJ eu vou explicar o que eu sei sobre o Lucro Presumido para o nosso tipo de trabalho (desenvolvimento de software), como é o dia-a-dia de impostos e porque decidi migrar do Simples alguns anos atrás. DISCLAIMER: Eu não sou contador, mas essas são as informações que eu levantei depois de toda a minha pesquisa, assim eu consegui conversar melhor com os contadores.

  • PJ optante do Simples Nov 7, 2020

    Nesse terceiro post da série de PF & PJ eu vou explicar o que eu sei sobre o Simples Nacional atual e como era a minha vida quando minha empresa era optante. Esses não são assuntos tão divertidos de se falar aqui no blog, mas são eternos motivos de conversas com amigos para enteder o que é mais viável para eles, portanto eu resolvi escrever sobre o meu caso e o que eu sei.

  • Review of When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Oct 24, 2020

    Book: When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, by Daniel Pink. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I read this book two times. The first time I had no context and was just looking for something to improve myself. The second time I read it to review everything I used and implemented so I could quote the book when writing an article about how to manage your energy to be more effective. The book provides amazing insights if you like to base your decisions on scientific research.
