Recurse Center, 2014-06-16

  • Didn't do anything during the weekend. Hopefully, this won't be the case all of the weekends. I had fun with my cousins, though.
  • Denise is already working on a twitter app that sounds similar to the idea I had.
  • I accidentally discovered that evince supports vim-like keybindings, which is cool.
  • When writing patterns for a function it helps to write the most general case first, and then write the edge cases.
  • I was feeling a little unproductive in the afternoon and I ended up attending Zach's talk on Community. I got a brief overview of the whole architecture, and got to know a little bit about reactjs and om. I don't think I'll get around to contributing to the project, since most of the stack is totally new to me, and I'm not particularly inclined to learn those things now.
  • I was working on Monoids for most part of the day and got through exercise 7. I started doing the I/O exercise around the end of the day.
  • The day ended with a talk on jobs related stuff by Nick and Sonali. It seems super unlikely for me to get a job (in the US), from what I understood from them. So, I needn't worry too much about that and focus on getting better at Haskel and as a programmer in general.
