lost & found, part 3

More fun stuff coming!

Portainer.io. I was browsing r/HomeLab to get some inspiration on how my future server farm would look like. I already have the name for my server farm, but I don’t have money yet to pursue this direction. Portainer.io looks really easy to deploy and of course it is open-source.

Tailwind CSS. It has been a while since I am interested in any CSS kit. This one caught my attention because the philosophy behind it is interesting. Follow this blog article to learn more about it: Separation of Concerns by Adam Wathan (August 2017).

MIT CommKit, a collection of guides to successful scientific communication, written by MIT’s department of Biological Engineering Communication Fellow. I guess it is now the time to re-format my CV/Resume. LaTeX?

Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, a book on learning python programming languge that I just found while browsing r/labrats. The book is free and available online! It also comes with a Udemy course.

Ford Improved Shorthand is a method to write faster by using the shorthand notation for each letters. It looks interesting as it allows me to take faster notes and probably I might implement this for the luls.

Notable. This is a thread on GitHub where a developer introduced his freshly-brewed note-taking app, the Notable (packaged in Electron btw). From this discussion, you see quite a bit of hate against Electron-packaged apps, and some other alternatives to note-taking app, e.g. VNote, Typora, etc.

Yan Holtz’s material for teaching data analytics & data visualization, basically a collection of lecture materials on data science and visualization.

Dan Crisan’s Tiny Intro into Database System. Not sure if I would really need this in the future, but I think it is still a good idea to have it bookmarked for further future reference. Who knows I might actually switch career, right?

Chapter 11: Genome-Wide Association Studies, a part of an online book on PLOS Computational Biology. I do not know why I have this bookmarked, and it has been sitting on my bookmark for quite a while now. Time to dump this link somewhere else, which is here on Caspershire Meta.

MIT Hacker Tools, not hacking in the sense of gaining access into a system, rather a collection of tools that are not widely and generally taught in intro CS classes. Here is the discussion on the Hacker News. From the comments, there are equivalent courses (that maybe can be taken online), e.g.UCLA CS35L by Paul Eggert, Software Carpentry, etc. Tools been taught in this series are, but not limited to, virtual machines, version controls, dotfiles, etc.
