Elsewhere on the Web #

How To Do Less by Alex Turek. How to do prioritization. It's in software development, but you should be able to use it in any context. I recommend reading Priority Is a Singular Word by Rishabh Dassani while you're at it.

Employees Are Returning to the Office, Just to Sit on Zoom Calls

Those at companies pushing for in-person work are asking: What's the point, if we're still meeting online?

From Belonging to Burnout, Five Years at Airbnb by Sahil S. I've found myself in this story. If you're reading my blog, then I recommend reading it as well.

Microservices: Why Are We Doing This? by Michael DeHaan. Some great points. The only thing I would add is a link to Big ball of mud Wikipedia article. If you stop looking at how much a single microservice is easier to understand and start looking at the whole system, it's no longer easy to say that the Monolith was so bad.

Personal Thoughts #

April was a weird month. I feel like all the stress and overwork were catching up with me. It turned out that I was vitamin D3 deficient when I finally got some time to do some blood tests. I got more energy and a better outlook on life after getting a prescription, but it's getting warmer, and I hope I will get more outside in the upcoming months.
I took some time off but spent most of it visiting doctors and fixing a wooden balcony we have that has disintegrated.
