• Review of The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2) Apr 21, 2021

    Book: The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2) by Stephen King. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. What a surprise! I enjoyed listening to this book. I have the whole series of books (printed version) here and decided to listen to the first one some years ago. I was not very impressed by it and decided to put the who series aside for some time. Last month I decided to give the second book a shot.

  • Review of The Life‑Changing Magic of Tidying Up Apr 11, 2021

    Book: The Life‑Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I like the book and there are very few things I disagree with the author. I think it’s too much to talk to objects, but I understand where this is coming from. In my opinion, just holding the object is enough, even if you don’t talk to them. I don’t think it’s a good idea to remove all objects from your bad/purse every day.

  • Opinião: Produtos e contratações globais Mar 20, 2021

    Tudo começou com uma discussão no grupo off-topic do Ruby Brasil. Alguém compartilhou a seguinte imagem: Encontrei o post original no Linkedin Esse post não é uma resposta direta ao Bruno Pereira, mas sim estendendo a discussão que começamos no grupo do Telegram. Um dos argumentos usados lá é que as empresas precisam entender que esse é um mercado global e ligar com isso tentando fazer as coisas ficarem locais gera várias frustrações.

  • Password managers Mar 2, 2021

    After many years using LastPass, I decided to make the switch to 1Password. I’m going to describe here why I did this and how was my process to choose. LastPass I’m using LastPass for many years now. A lot of people say that LastPass is not a good password manager, it has bugs, it’s ugly, it has too many trackers, yada, yada, yada. I was always the guy who said: “Yeah, it works for me”.

  • 2020 Year in Review Feb 23, 2021

    Brace yourselves, like any other stats post, this one will be HUGE If you’re following my blog, you know that I sometimes mentioned things were too hard and I couldn’t sit down and write. Looking back now, I have a good laugh for my past self. ☺️ I can say for sure that 2020 was a complicated year and a lot of things change in my life. The biggest change is that I’m now a father of twins.

  • Falando sobre a pirataria Feb 17, 2021

    Há alguns dias atrás, um amigo meu compartilhou um texto sobre pirataria no twitter. O texto possui o tema “Precisamos falar sobre a pirataria” e pode ser visto aqui. O texto é bem leve ao falar do assunto e mostra a visão da autora e sua própria experiência com a pirataria. Se eu fosse resumir o texto em uma frase (sim, é o meu entendimento sobre ele), seria: Todo mundo já usou pirataria de uma forma ou de outra quando não tinha dinheiro o suficiente para pagar por um determinado material.

  • Thoughts on group chats Feb 13, 2021

    I’m a big fan of group chats. The current app I use the most for group chats (and direct messages as well) is Telegram. I even created some group chats for topics I like (mechanical keyboards, note taking and productivity, Books and audiobooks, Money and investing, etc.). I take group chats (and communities) more seriously than I should and I make sure chats are moderated and following their topic, otherwise, it wouldn’t make any sense to have chats split by topic.

  • 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.
