Friday Links 22-40

Abstract AI 3D render
Catching up with my podcasts. The Heroko one was fun and so was the one about retrospectives.

If you want to see something impossible, watch the making-of series by Danny McAskill.


Radical Candor S4, Ep. 16: What Do Managers of Managers Do? (The Crank Call From Kim) [Podcast] - goes off the topic a bit at the end :-) 

How Retrospectives, Public Channels, and Asynchronous Meetings Foster Inclusive & Culturally-Diverse Teams (with Alexandra Sunderland, Sr Engineering Manager at Fellow)  [Podcast] - I am a big fan of retrospectives, even if you don't do anything agile, do retrospectives 

Ep - 16 - Leading through change; where do you start? feat. Ryan Tomlinson (VP of Engineering at Healx) [Podcast] - change is tricky.

The story of Heroku [Podcast] - I never used Heroko, but I can see the allure. The backstory is pretty interesting too. 

Reckoning with the force of Conway's Law [Podcast] - what it says on the tin 

Performance Review Incentives - I am not in favour of performance reviews. I like the idea, but I have never seen them implemented in a useful way.

The “tech lead” title is turmoil. Is it worth it? - I have seen this problem in most companies I worked for. I think it is time to reframe it or get rid of the idea.

How to build an apprenticeship program for engineering managers - how to grow your people to EMs


Accelerating Code Delivery By 97% With Yarn Workspaces - monorepos 

Shopify Embraces Rust for Systems Programming - nice, but the migration must be a pain.

Five stars code reviews - another try at defining good code reviews


The current state of mental health in the workplace, with Dr Nick Taylor [Podcast] - this became much less abstract for me recently 

EU institutions prepare to close on pay transparency negotiations - this is taking forever!

TBM 53/52: "Are All Companies Messed Up?" - yes, but some are trying to get better


How the Parking Garage Conquered the City - better than parking lots, but they also bring too many cars into cities

Budapest has the busiest and longest TRAMS in the world! | Trailer: City Unboxed [YouTube] - great public transport. Walking and cycling is a bit meh.

Why Amsterdam is Removing 10,000 Parking Spaces [YouTube] - on-street parking, which is great. Replacing them with underground parking … not so great. 

Rethinking the Mobility Paradigm | FULL Keynote | Marco te Brömmelstroet [YouTube] - framing is important 


Mapped: Carbon Dioxide Emissions Around the World - go Germany!

Random Electronic Music

‘It was a gateway for people to get into electronic music’: 30 years of Warp Records’ Artificial Intelligence  - I know all the songs, but didn't know the album.

Airport security 100ml liquid rule to be scrapped - about time 

The Next Chapter of Reader: Public Beta - a feed reader with all the features from Readwise. I have been trying it out for a while, but the app is just too slow for me at the moment.

2019 - 2022 reading recap. - something for my reading list

Don't buy me this! Gifts not to buy for cyclists this Christmas to avoid a festive faux pas - yearly reminder!

The Continuity of Splines  [YouTube] - this is beautiful
