5 misconceptions of big data / data science. Actually not a bad article.
Writing policies for network repair, thought decision trees might help, so reading about them now.
Java YouTube channels, in there in the InfoQ one, comes highly recommended
Some lessons learnt, a lot here makes sense: The Twelve-Factor App
If you haven’t switched to duckduckgo yet what convinced me was when @amsomniac showed me the !bangcodes
Basically if you start a ddg search with something like !ebay or !wiktionary it searches that site directly after being anonymized through ddg’s server. So rather than have different search engines in my browser I select it’s just !w for Wikipedia or !translate for google translate
You can even do !g and do an anonymous untracked google search
