Recurse Center Week 7

2

Belated post for week 7, aka all streams, all the time. I’m giving a talk on streams, and why they are THE most excellent data structure you didn’t know enough about, at NorfolkJS and wanted to do lots of background research to really understand streams (a very Recurse Center project, I understand). I also finished the Land of […]

Recurse Center Week 6

This week I internet-launched my most recent major work, and spent some time wandering and playing with other things.

One frustration in particular is that I want to do more “social coding” – pairing, contributing to other people’s projects, collaboration. After […]

This week I started Hacker School [update: now the Recurse Center]! For this week’s blog post, I’ll post about what I did this week. Day 1 Morning was mostly introductions, orientation, and getting started with our first week’s checkin group, which are basically Hacker School standups. I set the topic for our checkin, which is “web […]
