The last few months have been a bit hectic: a few weeks traveling through NYC and DC, a new job in San Francisco, a cross country drive, and a few apartment moves. Thankfully, my life has finally reached the point where I am comfortable again and can start coding and writing in peace. My new job has kept me quite busy, but what little free time I find, I try and make good use of.
I found an article through HackerNews recently that, while quite old, still seemed quite relevent and impressed me greatly: “You and Your Research,” a transcription of a talk given by Richard Hamming in 1986, the year I was born.
Of the many great quotes and ideas in his talk, this stood out to me:
"You should do your job in such a fashion that others can build on top of it"
That is the best way to describe my goal for this blog, along with the code in my github repos. It’s time to accomplish great things.
