I’ve been interviewed in Podcast.__init__ talking about Copier. Listen to the interview.
Having a Windows virtual machine in Linux has a lot of utilities: If you’re testing Linux for the first time, it can help you “unhook yourself” from Windows little by little. You know you have Windows there, and that placebo gives you the necessary courage to test this little weird new world that is Linux. You’re a developer and you want to see how your apps or services work on Windows.
I hate negative booleans. If any time, for any reason, you need to use a boolean variable (very common), please always think in positive. You don’t know how many brain cells I have wasted interpreting code like this: # Declare variable no_update = True # Use variable if not no_update: do_something() I mean… why not just write it like this? # Declare variable update = False # Use variable if update: do_something() And time and again I keep on seeing that pattern… Seriously, always be positive please.
What to do when you find this 💩 in the terminal? ➤ sudo apt-get remove linux-image-generic Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: linux-generic : Depends: linux-image-generic (= 22.214.171.124.151) but it is not going to be installed linux-modules-extra-4.4.0-143-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.4.0-143-generic but it is not going to be installed o linux-image-unsigned-4.
Something completely unnecessary but essential at the same time: To install it: Page to install the extension. Source code. It doesn’t work as good as the old Compiz, but it’s better than nothing!
Well, well… ok… let’s get real… Yeoman and Cookiecutter are not dead, it’s just that I wanted a catchy headline. 😁 What I mean is that suddenly a new competitor has emerged with lots of advantages, and it’s going to give them a good fight… If you’re reading this, I guess you already know these tools, but just in case: What are Yeoman and Cookiecutter? Cookiecutter is a generator. Actually, until now, it’s the main referent in Python, and one of the most importants in any language.
Half the planet is under quarantine, and the other half will be soon (no matter if you still believe you won’t)… but we want to keep in touch with our relatives! What options do we have?
From this moment, this blog is multilang, and new posts will be written in both English and Spanish simultaneously… if I want. 😛
