This Week I Learned #5

Here are some of the things I learned this week, in the order I’ve noted them down.

  • 自粛じしゅくつか (jishuku-tsukare). An expression that’s gaining momentum right now in Japanese media, meaning getting tired of voluntary confinement.

# Programming

  • Visual explanations go a long way in demystifying tricky topics such as [floating numbers](Floating Point Visually Explained) and regular expressions.

  • JavaScript frameworks are costly, argues this well-researched piece by Tim Kadlec. One would think that performance tends to get better over time in technology, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in JS-land.

  • I picked up some LaTeX this week for writing mathematical notations and this cheatsheet came in quite handy.
