There are many factors that lead to the creation of bad software: the choice of tools, communication in a team, the personal disinterest of developers in the success, the testing methodology. It seems to me that all this has a primary cause: these are imaginary problems.
 
 
Excessively complex or non-functional software was not designed this way. It is simply designed for something else, not for ...[/h]

Five selfish reasons to work are reproducible

Annotation
 
So, my fellow scientists, do not ask what you can do for reproducibility - ask what reproducibility can do for you!
 
Here I will list five reasons why the possibility of data reproducibility pays off in the long run and is of personal interest to every ambitious, career-oriented scientist.
 
 
A complicated equation in the left half of the blackboard, an even more complicated equation is in the right. A short sentence connects the two equations: "Here comes a miracle." Two mathematics, in deep thought. "I think you should be more specific in the second step," says one to the other.

Removed, merciless you flour

Removed, merciless you flourOn Habré, and on other resources, you can find hundreds of articles praising the remote work in every way. And how can it be otherwise: life is almost without Mondays, alarm clocks and with rather far-seated chiefs. It would seem, live and be happy, sit at the PC in a stretched T-shirt, change to a home exercise bike, do not worry about whether you are good at eating pizza with colleagues, do the work in a more comfortable mode. And do not listen to office gossip and drink cool tea or coffee.
 
 
I never thought so. I loved the office and this quiet concentration of the workplace. I thought I would ...

There is a good book (pretty much the only good book) that is worth reading about the research community of which PARC was part, the "DREAM MACHINE" by Mitchell Waldrop ( Which we also translate on Habré , ). There you will learn about the ARPA (up to "D", D-ARPA) IPTO (office for processing technical information), created in 1962 by the dreamer Joseph Karl Robnett Liklayderom (translated Times , , Two ), community of 15 or 16 "projects", mainly in universities, but also in several places like RAND ...

Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator: Productivity

Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator: Productivity
 
 
I think I work a little more productive than the average person, and many people often ask me how to increase productivity. So I decided to collect here all the tips that I can give about this.
 
 
Usually the pace of development is discussed in the context of the economy, but this can also be applied in a career, which is very cool. A small seed of productivity, cultivated for 50 years, costs a lot! Therefore, it is necessary to find out how to optimize productivity. If you do 10% more work every day and 1% better than anyone else, the final difference will be incredible.

About personal productivity. How to conduct activities when much depends on you

About personal productivity. How to conduct activities when much depends on you
 
Once the British from «Expert Market» decided to conduct a study on labor productivity. If we summarize its results briefly, then we can say that at the end of the day the children obtained statistics with hourly indicators in different countries (the formula does not quite reflect the real picture, but at least there is some basis: the GDP was divided by the number of production hours). It's a shame that we are not even surprised by the following conclusions, because we are accustomed to low productivity:
