The Monthly Cache

A monthly collection of links that I've found to be interesting and worthwhile to read, watch, or listen. Articles, photographs, software, music, etc.

Cache for May 2021

Quite some Rust this week. As a self-taught programmer , and mostly experienced in Python, I find Rust a very interesting language. Furthermore two articles more towards my past self: photography, and network science.

  • Insightful analysis on social norms involving the nature of Open Source work.
  • One of the best explanations on the distinction between String and &str in Rust, extremely empathic in it's tone. I really like when articles manage to compare things across languages. Bonus: A more extensive and fun read on memory management between C adn Rust very much centered around strings.
  • Some more Rust, learning it the dangerous way via porting a C application. Very good read, very instructive, and very detailed.
  • A long piece on computational photography. After reading this, I started to respect cellphone cameras/photography and their improvement over time.
  • Science divulgation article on how propagation works in networks. Quite nice animated visualizations.

Cache for April 2021

This month, quite sided towards git topics. I guess it's correlated with my intention to improve my use of git as a tool.
