• Abertura de empresa Oct 22, 2020

    Esse é o segundo post da série de PF & PJ e vou contar sobre a minha epopéia de como foi abrir uma empresa em 2017 e o que escolhi. A ideia principal desse post é mostrar para as pessoas como é abrir uma empresa de desenvolvimento de software, os custos envolvidos e qual a melhor forma (IMO) de estruturá-la. 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.

  • J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography Oct 21, 2020

    Book: J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography, by Humphrey Carpenter. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s not a secret to anyone that I’m a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien. I have 3 versions of this book. A translated version (pt-BR), the original version in English, and the audiobook. It’s no news that it would be a 5 star book to me. I just listened to the Inklings book by Humphrey Carpenter, so it was the best time to also listen to this one (yes, I went for the Audiobook).

  • Freelancer PF para o exterior Oct 11, 2020

    Esse é um texto que eu escrevi em 2017 quando eu comecei a abrir a minha empresa. Como o post ficou interminado e eu acho que ainda tem valor, eu resolvi terminar e publicar. Vou escrever uma pequena série de posts sobre esse lance de formas de trabalho e a minha experiência fora de CLT.

  • Review of The Inklings: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Their Friends Sep 5, 2020

    Book: The Inklings: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Their Friends by Humphrey Carpenter. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I’m giving it 5 stars because I enjoyed it a lot and it came at the right time for me. For most people, it will probably be a 4-stars book. I’m a big fan of J.R.R Tolkien and also the concept of the Inklings. I have my own spin-off of this group with some friends but instead of discussing literature, we just take some time to have some deep conversation about anything.

  • Dactyl keyboard - Part 1 Aug 28, 2020

    After build the Iris keyboard I decided to start a new quest to build a Dactyl-cc (as I mentioned at the end of the Iris post 😉) Dactyl is the keyboad I wanted to build from the start but I certainly didn’t have the skils to do it. I decided to first build a “portable kinesis”, so I could take it with me when I was traveling and Iris seemed like a great fit for this and not that hard for a first project.

  • Review of Programming Rust: Fast, Safe Systems Development Aug 11, 2020

    Book: Programming Rust: Fast, Safe Systems Development. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This is a great book for sure. I started reading it in 2017 but never find the time to read it. Now, thanks to having two babies at home, I have enough time to read while waiting for them to sleep. :) There are many things I like about this book. The first is the comparisons with C and C++ since both authors are/were C/C++ developers.

  • Assembling an Iris Rev4 Jul 23, 2020

    It’s been a while since I’m looking for a keyboard that would be great to take with me when I’m not working from home for some days. I finally found the Iris keyboard that seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. The need I currently have a Kinesis Advantage at home. The keyboard is great, probably the best keyboard I used so far, but it’s far from what we can call portable 😅.

  • Review of Nonviolent Communication May 22, 2020

    Book: Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Great book! It’s short and straight to the point. In summary, we should emphasize more with other people and understand what they are really trying to say. Sometimes we don’t communicate well and it’s up to someone to find out what is the problem and raise the right questions. This book feels even more important now that we have more people working remotely.

  • Review of The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking May 15, 2020

    Book: The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking by Oliver Burkeman. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It was a suggestion from a friend when I published the review of Don’t Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks, as he found the content to be complimentary. I liked the book overall. It’s interesting how the author shows some scientific facts of the “positive thinking” which contradicts the current collective thinking. I don’t have anything against positive thinking, but I’m sure positive thinking alone will not do much.

  • Review of Don't Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks Apr 7, 2020

    Book: Don’t Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks by R. Reid Wilson. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. A good book and exactly what I needed, thanks for the recommendation, Rafael Rosa! Some people said it seems like a Rust programming language book because of the word “panic” but it’s actually related to panic/anxiety attacks. It’s not the first time I suffer from anxiety but it’s the first time I felt the panic attack symptoms, so I decided to read more about it.
