Like all of us, I have been spending a lot of time online during the coronavirus pandemic. As companies announce permanent remote-first work or pivot their strategies to increase online engagement, I have watched with great interest the multitude of "hot takes" that have overtaken my twitter feed.
I take notes. While I'm reading, after I've spoken to somebody, when ideas pop into my head while walking. I like to document these, not always into nicely formatted blog posts, sometimes just a few lines. As of right now, I've got 2423 sitting in my notes app, this is where I'll publish the ones I'm brave enough to share. Topics range from programming and theoretical computer science to governance and economics and even to book reviews and mundane observations. I'm not saying they're good, that's for you to decide.
Just like applying skills from a degree to the workplace is different, so is applying self-learned skills. That’s why I wanted to take some time to share some of the ways my thinking shifted once I started using Go in a professional environment.
