Last year, the bosses of CD Projekt Red approached me for an interview. They wanted to announce that for Cyberpunk 2077, they would be avoiding mandatory crunch.

This week, they sent out an email to staff announcing studio-wide mandatory crunch. News: bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

For writing code that mostly does syscalls for networking, file access and so on, Go is a great tool though! Its simplicity and error handling shine here. See Docker, Kubernetes, ...

Working mostly on the data side of things I see the value of a more flexible language for this kind of work.

I’ve done over 1000 (mostly API design) reviews when I was working on Go. You might be wondering who needs generics, here are my three categories:
- Data layers, database APIs
- Collections
- Container types

Lack of generics is not just copy/paste but causing error-prone APIs.

If this is not worrying you, then I don't know what will β˜•πŸ˜±

Working with dates is so damn hard. Time is an illusion and it crumbles whenever you squeeze it too tight.

It doesn't matter if you write the algorithm explicitly or you train it. You create it.

Turns out algorithms are political. But algorithms are not racist. People creating them are.

A faculty member has been asking how to stop Zoom from removing his head when he uses a virtual background. We suggested the usual plain background, good lighting etc, but it didn't work. I was in a meeting with him today when I realized why it was happening.

Also, what about bugs that exist in theory but no one run into yet?

It definitely feels nice to write down things somewhere so you can forget about it for now.
How is everyone else dealing with this?

I still wonder if you should take a note of every nice to have thing you come across (in the form of a TODO comment or an issue) or if you should just forget about them and the high-value ones will be obvious and come up again automatically...

Hot take: software really big blind spot for hierarchical data, in that we don't have any great ways of representing it besides emulating it via text... unlike other structured forms of data, like tabular, relational, and graph data twitter.com/jeremyjkun/status/
