rooHype342yI know that too well!
Ederbit7872yDon't make the mistake of reading some book to help you do thinga while procrastinating the actual work.
Meanig read an architecture book everyday for 15 minutes.
LLAMS33202yWatch a few youtube talks from the likes of Bob Martin, Kevlin Henney, Martin Fowler etc. Their talks tend to be quite engaging.
I wish they had devRant books. Learn coding through ranting :)
Book 1: Learn workflow programming like Apache nifi. Drag and drop data source to destination, like sql, nosql, plain text files, spreadsheets, you-name-it data source to rest api. That will also give you Avro metadata. Use a avro to json schema converter and link that to a rest api.
Then css tricks to make it look good.
No more orm or boilerplate. Lazy to the max. Super scalable across many servers and the cloud. :)
cephei2032yi do adderall 2-3 times a month if I really need to focus, tho it's illegal in my country. there would be legal alternatives as well but haven't tried them yet.
For the past few months I've been listening to lectures/talks during my commute instead of radio or music.
So far I've relistened an algorithms course and listened to an algorithmic game theory course.
No, it's not nearly as productive as actually taking a course and doing the assignments etc, but it is better than nothing and keeps me interested academically.
