Angular 2 vs React: The Ultimate Dance Off
Most people who follow me know that I personally favor React, but of course I like my decisions to be educated, not based on uninformed bias. Lately, I’ve been exploring Angular 2 in-depth. Here’s how it compares to React in my opinion.
Why I’m not a React Native Developer
Many people are currently assessing React Native as a platform to develop their next mobile app on. This is no trivial matter. Having spent several months using React Native, I have found that it is neither a platform I would develop in, nor a platform I would recommend the use of. This article proposes to provide a more thorough evaluation of the pros and cons of switching from Swift development to React Native, and will argue against the switch. 回应文： Why I’m a React Native Developer: a Response to Ariel Elkin

Modern Functional Programming
Late last year, I wrote my thoughts on what the architecture of modern functional programs should look like. Since then, I’ve had a chance to read responses, look at equivalent architectures built upon Monad Transformers Library (MTL), and even talk about my recent experiments at LambdaConf 2016. The result is a sequel to my original post, which consists of a newly-minted, tricked-out recommendation for architecting modern functional programs, along with new ways of thinking about the structure of this architecture.

Reflections of an “Old” Programmer
一位 40 岁的程序员的思考，这几个观点挺不错的：knowledge decay, Half of what a programmer knows will be useless in 10 years; knowledge accumulation rate, the pace at which we add new things to our knowledge corpus; take the long view, making less money in the short term (at a better employer) will yield more money (and stability) over the course of a long career; invest most in knowledge that is durable, spent accumulating knowledge that has a longer half-life - algorithms, application security, performance optimization, and architecture.

Fortunately Git also supports aliases, so you can create your own commands that do all manner of Git magic. Here’s a selection of the more useful (or at least entertaining) aliases defined in my .gitconfig

A Tale of Two Software Engineers and Commitment
Engineer #1 (we’ll call her Alice): I’ll work on it as much as I can, but at 9pm I have to leave. I’ll continue first thing in the morning. Engineer #2 (we’ll call him Bob): I’m on it.
