10/26 - 11/01

This week the theme of my selected readings is about careers: how to succeed in your respective one, how to apply theoretical concepts in CS to a software engineering day job, and how to know when it’s time to quit a typical day job. I also included a few beautiful musings on life and death. There’s also a bunch of other unrelated things that run the gamut from distributed systems, hackathons at scale, and more indictments of Facebook (as per usual) :) Enjoy!
