This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 09

Last week post.

#1 Goals vs. Systems. Before pursuing any goals, make sure you're making an informed and educated decision. The strategy is to use knowledge instead of willpower to pursuit your goals. For example, as not all carbohydrate foods are equal, you can lose weight easier if you pick the right food choice by knowing its Glycemic Index, which have an effect on a person's blood sugar.

#2 Raspberry Pi 3 is out. (HN discussion) The built-in onboard Wifi and Bluetooth as well as 64 bits support are welcoming feature. Unfortunately, local Element14 still awaiting stock. Heck, I can't even procure a Pi Zero till today. Not sure if the specs boost is worth the upgrade, however, some review claimed this release it's a worthy desktop replacement. If you never own a Pi before and itchy get on the single-board computer bandwagon, then you should get a Pi 3. As for me, will skip this as I'm saving money to get a SSD drive which definitely help with my testing of containers.

#3 Git rebase and the golden rule explained. Detailed explanation on Git rebase. If you want to stick to the Subversion's model of a single linear tree, then Git rebasing is the preferred choice. The only caveat is you may need to force-push if you rebase already commits that have been shared.

#4 Prevalence of Healthy Sleep Duration among Adults — United States. (Reddit discussion) Seriously, sleeping less than 7 hours per day may increase your chances of mortality. Rest people, rest.

#5 Using Make with Django. Lots of people (especially those from non-Unix background) overlook or underestimate the useful of GNU Make to manage tasks with your software project.

#6 How do you remember what you read? It will take times to internalised or digest the information but memorization is the initial step. If you can't retain the information within your brain, you can't analyze it. Retention is useful to verify your understanding if you just follow the these steps.
  1. Read a paragraph.
  2. Close the book.
  3. Write down what you remember.
  4. Re-read the paragraph and check.
