2013, still lots of books to read, a lot to learn. hope for the best.

finished Are Your Lights On?, I don't particularly like this kind of books. But since it's one of 5 books that meant to David Heinemeier Hansson (creator of Rails), and I could find a Chinese version in library, a good read though.

Start reading Lessons Learned in Software Testing, saw someone recommended it while reading reviews on How Google Tests Software (hard to concentrate on reading this one, gave up). Another readable book list on chapter two (links to my local library):


Cognitive Psychology

Exploratory Inference

Lean from the Trenches mentions use Google Draw as kanban board, a really good suggestion. But of course physical board is prefered.

2012: A Year in PHP is a good read. I will surely move to 5.4, use Composer (though I hate explicit namespaces), try BDD (with PHPSpec and Behat, codeception is cool too), moving forward to Content as a Service. Hope I would still have time for PHP.

I got an idea about one-click bug reporting, with no surprise, someone already did it.

Try to read some haskell again, hope this time could get something out of it.

reading Learning Node, so far it's the best book on node I've read.

util.inherits() could be very useful, something like monkey-patching for ruby. isolate functionality but easy to access. might try use reflection to archive this feature for php.

my nodejitsu two months free trial will expire soon, but now I have to re-consider about continuing with its pay service. the deployment process is not smooth, slow and unsuccessful deployment happened many times. now trying appfog, not like heroku, your app (free plan) doesn't sleep, and it supports ruby, nodejs, python, java, up to 16 apps can use for free plan (too good to be true?), the af cli tool is easy to use and much faster than jitsu.

tried trello, again, simple is the best, very useful tool.

moved to appfog, within 30 minutes, everything is done, including dns records. this is how paas rocks. deployment is much faster now, and no annoying version number increasing before every push. i still think, it's too good to be true.
