Digest: 2013

Since January did not end yet, I still have a little time to share the promised list of the posts and talks, which I enjoyed the last year. These are quite different: some of them are devoted to particular programming problems, some discuss approaches to software development. On the other side, several posts focus on the way we do our day-to-day job and can be applied not only to programmers. Finally a couple of items are pure fun, demonstrating where developers' and scientists' joy comes from. Definitely all the blog posts and video recordings listed below include some great advice and a portion of the authors' wisdom, so those of you looking for motivation for doing great things won't be disappointed. I hope you will enjoy reading and watching!

EOL: 2013

It is the beginning of January now, which means that it’s time to look back and see what has been done and what I failed to do over the last 12 months. As with any year in our life, during the last one I witnessed the appearance of new things and the start of new activities – many of them I will carry through 2014 and maybe even further. On the other side, there are things that I had to leave in 2013 either because I have chosen to do so or due to the reasons less dependent on my short term decisions and determined mostly by the nature of the events. Both what I left and what I take with me will influence my future life and is important when looking ahead.
