An image of a creature drawn by my daughter. She was using her tape dispenser as a template for the shape.
The episode is highly exciting, and I’ve now also listened to some of the other episodes as well.

Review of Composing Software
For a long time, I wanted to learn about the theoretical background of functional programming. But I always waited to do it. So, when I stumbled over a blog article by Eric Elliott (Composing Software: An Introduction), I decided to buy and read his book - Composing Software by Eric Elliott📚.

The candle is a concept for a smart home that does not phone home and does not need an internet connection. The only downside is now that you need to build the parts yourself.
These articles have an exciting concept, showing the duality of the future development of technology and our world. I usually tend to only think about the harmful outcomes of all these developments. But not everything needs to be bad. Unfortunately, I feel that the amount of people enjoying the beautiful sides will be smaller then the number of humans left out of this new world.
Review of Other Minds: The Octopus and the Evolution of Intelligent Life
An article about exploding Amazon batteries. And who produces these products and where. I enjoyed this text a lot as it’s interesting how Amazon starts to create it’s own products while also selling products for other producers.
While reading the chapter about transducers, I had quite some difficulties understanding how it works. So I made a cheat sheet of the concept.
Review of The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale
I decided to read The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood📚 after not being sure to read a book which looked for me like an unneeded sequel after the TV show. But I’m happy that I did read it because my fears did not come true. And you do not have to read the original book to enjoy this book.

I certainly know the situations described in the first half of this article. The fear of refactoring. Or the problems with integrating a big feature branch after some time.
But what I’m missing in this article is how to work with features which change your data model in a big way, I have the feeling, that a feature toggle sounds easy in theory but creates quite some cost and complexity in the actual code.

Drawerception. Working on a design for my new wardrobe with additional storage. Big drawers with a lot of smaller drawers in it. Not yet sure if this idea will be viable.

Supper - Homemade Saltimbocca with Risotto and Vegetables.
Stumbled over this company last week, the product looks interesting, but again something cloud-based :-(. I’m thinking about using this product to do the voice-over of my videos.
