This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 34

Last week post or some past posts.

How many books I can read this year? Who cares? Just read the book already. (via HN) Different types of books require different reading strategies. Should you read deeply (slow) or lightly (skimming)?

What can you do when you obtain large amount data from city council? See effort (via HN) by Matt Chapman where he reduced parking tickets through data munging through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from city council's parking system. What about FOIA for MY? Yes, there is something similar but only for both Selangor and Penang states.

Do you hates your job at 35? (via HN) Contrary to the general HN's opinions, work is there to pay bills but this guy seemed to have figure things out. And fortunately, as a hobbyist developer getting paid, I still foresee myself doing this for many coming moons (there are still so many pending items in the bucket list). One thing for sure, you just need to take care of your health.

Meanwhile, how does an old programmer's resume looks like from 1980? Something like this, a simple cover letter and one page resume.
