This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 05

Last week post.

#1 Reply 1988. Highest rated drama in Korea cable television as the time of writing. Heart-warming family Korean drama about a group of neighbouring families and friends set in 1988. Lots of nostagia look back in the eighties. Interestingly, the genre of the drama is known as coming of age where we follow the growth of the characters from youth to adulthood. One of the drama's original sound track (OST), "A Little Girl" (a remake) caught my attention. It has been a while since I've mesmerized by any OST. Frankly speaking, the best kdrama I've watched so far. And lastly, why 1988? Is the year that Korea hosted the Summer Olympics which leads to a significant political and social changes.

#2 TypeMatrix. (via Arcachne Webzine) Another ergonomic keyboard but without splitting the layout into half but instead more sensible keys placement, for example, large Enter key in the center.

#3 Visualizing Concurrency in Go. (HN dicusssion) Visually intriguing but 2D representation is still better than 3D, for example, like UML sequence diagram? Would be even better if we can have step-by-step tracing of the code and the visualizing simultaneously.

#4 Overpass Web Font, free/libre font by Red Hat. Primary used for the company own branding.

#5 Docker Official Images Are Moving to Alpine Linux. The sentiment in HN discussion does not agree with such approach. Furthermore, docker-slim was created to solve fatty container issue using your favourite GNU/Linux distros.
