I just got back from a ten day trip to Asia. My wife and I spent some time in Jakarta with her family and then we went to Bangkok for a few days. I didn’t have access to a computer so I fell behind in my lessons, but I’m getting back into the routine now. I did pick up a book to read before I left though, that kept my mind on coding. It’s called The Self-Taught Programmer. It’s a good read; I recommend it. However, I was expecting less how-to and more about life as a programmer. That’s the impression I got when I ordered it, but a bulk of it is teaching Python. Which is great, and I plan on returning to the book when it is time for me to learn Python, but it’s not something I have time for at the moment. The last couple chapters talk about life as a programmer and what to expect when someone lands their first job as a developer, and it goes into best practice and etiquette and things like that.
Other than reading, I haven’t done anything with code for the past ten days, so there isn’t much to report on.
