Friday Links 22-17

Library in  Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
I have a new job. You can expect more about hiring and communication here in the coming weeks.

My weird hobby topics will continue. 


Leading your engineering team through an unexpected product pivot - Code as Craft is back and it is good. I really liked this one. Pivots are tricky, the ground shifts below you.

Octoverse Spotlight 2021: The Good Day Project—Personal analytics to make your work days better - nothing really news, but using surveys and data to figure out developer happiness 

When Everything is Important But Nothing is Getting Done - a common problem and a good long read about how to fix it

It is not my job - "Glue work vs gap filling" is a great way of describing Staff+ roles 

21 secrets the Scrum Guide doesn’t tell you - "How we cripple Scrum to fit the broken system" - I am not a Scrum purists, but there a lot of good stuff here 

Everything You Need to Know About Answering Behavioral Interview Questions - this is more for the interviewee, but a good introduction to behavioural questions 

Asynchronous Communication is the Great Leveler in Engineering - not much new, just a good summary


Stupid RCU Tricks: Is RCU Watching? - I can't stop myself from reading posts about Linux internals! (til: Livejournal is still a thing)

What happened to Perl 7? - I did forget about it! I really don't use Perl much any more. It is such a fun language though. 

747 Hackathon - security researches are clearly having too much fun!

Schneier on security for tomorrow’s software [Podcast] - Bruce Schneier is great. This is the first time I hear him in a podcast and I like how down to earth and humble he is.


Toxic particles from brakes to be included in ‘Euro 7’ emission rules - still missing tires 


Crash Course - words matter

Random Books

a book like {foo} - book recommender and recommender for books outside your bubble: Break the Bubble!

Bikes4Ukraine - crowdfunding sends bikes to Lviv, Ukraine [YouTube] - cool initiatives, but it doesn't look like the crowd funding is going anywhere - well, that's depressing

Classic Desert Island Discs - George Michael [Podcast] - I don't think I listed to this one the first time around, really good and what a guy!

How can we live an ethical life? [Podcast] - great interview with the Philosopher Peter Singer

The 6 Horizons of Focus - it has been a long time since I read GTD and I completely forgot about the horizons, this is a good reminder
