Dark Mode, Bad Code Patterns, & More…
We’re back once again with yet another dev digest, the best links the internet has to offer on software and programming. This week, we go behind the scenes at Etsy, learn about new developments in IoT, and even explore the perception of time and its effect on developer productivity. Let’s get into it:
- Programmers will be happy to know that yet another application is getting a “dark” mode. This time, it’s Windows Explorer.
- Notepad will now support Unix line endings, in addition to the way Windows handles them.
- Here’s a nice long read about code patterns that get developers into trouble
- Channel 9 has a new high-level overview of IoT and the business case for connected devices
- A guide to ignoring checked exceptions in Java.
- Etsy’s developer blog recently covered the saga of their transition to Google Kubernetes Engine.
- Code reviews aren’t about shaming developers or enforcing a checklist. They should be a learning opportunity.
- Elizabeth Chin’s guide to interacting with non-technical clients has key points for any developer to take to heart
- How you perceive time makes a big impact on your productivity.
