I feel like if I could decide on a side project to do then I’d maybe be able to get started and learn some new things and chill out a bit for a couple of hours a day, but I always get discouraged by existing products and thinking that I’m not good enough to do anything. Imposter syndrome sucks

take me down to parallax city where the back moves slow and the front moves quickly

Feel a bit lost lately, after spending a day coding - or as it is lately in meetings so I can get to coding - when I get home I don’t have any motivation to code for fun like I used to and end up playing games or veg’ing out :/ there are so many things I want to do / learn I guess I feel overwhelmed and so never start any of them

We also chatted about some industry (fintech) specific concepts, but the I've outlined the rest above.

Tech is an intellectually demanding, team oriented, varied field, and I heartily recommend it 😊

Thank god its the weekend! Going to give advent of code a go tomorrow before going out in the evening :) My copy of just arrived too!

Still undecided what to do the challenges with, not sure whether to use Rust still or move to C++ / D / Nim

Was going to do more advent of code tonight, but looks like i'm not going to have time :( Not sure how I feel about Rust yet, seems very verbose at the minute - but I think that's because I'm very new to writing Rust

Starting the first problem! Looks fairly simple, going to try and solve it in first

Thinking about writing a chess engine as a learning project, maybe in or ++ with some of the newer features. Not sure why, but it’s been on my mind for a while...

It's been a little more than a year since I wrote about trying #Go and #Rust for the first time. I've stuck with Rust! (Haven't written any Go since writing the post.)

Can't wait for this year! Who is going to give it a go? I can't decide whether to use F# again or maybe Rust or Nim...So many languages, so little time :(

I'm one of those shady internet people your mother warned you about, but instead of trying to get you to send nudes, I'm gonna try and convince you to program in Haskell
