I loved the essay about 40 years of programming by Lars Wirzenius. 

The coaching session about career goals is also great, independent of the topic.

Code samples for the opening chapter of Refactoring - love this. It is missing Perl, Ruby, and Elixir, in case you are bored.

Shaped like information - always funny. I am all for Hoboz!
