I’m a software engineer in Berkeley, CA.
Some things I believe:
- While HTTP isn’t always the best answer, it’s a damn fine first guess.
- You can’t do much without measuring.
- Writing tests for your code may not reduce the number of bugs, but it will
make fixing the bugs you inevitably find easier.
- Bicycles should come stock with fenders, racks, lights, and nice fat tires.
- If a problem is worth solving, it’s worth solving well and once.
- Incurious people terrify me.
- There is no such thing as untestable code.
- Over-attachment to tools is dysfunctional—don’t mistake what the tool
allows you to do with the tool itself.
- Mornings require some Sightglass coffee.
- The internal components of your software should exhibit the same grace and
utility as the external components—looking under the hood should be
delightful, not horrifying.
- People should wear more wool.
