Some pages I’ve found interesting recently:

  • Online Python Exercises
    A good summary of some of the Python exercises available online.  If this interests you also check out my ‘Getting started with Python’ post.
  • The New Apple Advantage
    An insightful piece on Apples successful strategy of offering minimal configuration options for its phones, tablets and computers as a way to simplify the buying process and improve revenue.
  • Developing Razor Sharp Focus
    Worth it alone for the very useful mind map.  I like his focus on creating rituals, managing email distractions and taking time to reflect and review.
  • Why I Go Home: A Developer Dad’s Manifesto
    A very good post on work-life balance for software developers.  I especially liked the following observation: ‘If you screw up at your job you can always get another one, but if you screw up your family, especially your relationship with your children, it will stay with you and stay screwed up forever‘ so many people seem to fail to realise that jobs are temporary but family is forever..
  • XKCD: File Transfer (Comic)
    Just why is transferring files still so awkward in this day and age?
