Syndicode Digest #73 – Rare possibility

How many of you have tried your luck? We’re not talking about gambling or ruffling. We’re talking about belief in your chance, even if you know that there’s no chance at all. Theoretically, this way of behavior is at low probability among programmers because they can predict what will happen according to different assumptions and calculations.

How Elixir helps make the most complex systems work effectively?

Previously we described the difference between Elixir and Ruby and the main features. One of the features of Elixir is the ability to work with umbrella projects. With umbrella projects, Elixir allows you to have more than one application in your system. The really nice thing about this is that there is almost no difference between an application inside an umbrella and the same application if it were built as a single project.

Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius

When you’re modest, nobody will know how much you do. But when people claiming too much, they’re not taken seriously as talented ones. Because talent comes with modesty and thoughts that your achievement will be evaluated sooner or later. Better sooner, of course. However, sometimes you have to tell the world who are you. Don’t be too shy to share your articles, codebase, design, repositories, and ideas! If you wouldn’t know people’s opinion you will never move forward and get recognition! Or fail. But daring to fail is also an important part of your unicorn’s path! Let’s dare with new ‘Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius’!

Syndicode Digest #64 – Whenever inspiration

You can never expect for inspiration to come when you need it. Oh, no, it doesn’t work like this. The inspiration has got the most stupid habit to come when you’re sleeping, or eating, or chatting and then you tend to forget about the idea very fast. Because you were busy with some other urgent tasks or your head was filled with other thoughts, not very related to the inspiration motive. However, never rely on inspiration! It is a pretty vital but bad companion. That is why we worked on our ‘Syndicode Digest #64 – Whenever inspiration’ regardless of the afflatus but relying on the most interesting materials we collected during this week!
