2024 April. Kindle Scribe

Books I'm reading #

Advanced Web Application Architecture by Matthias Noback. I have mixed feelings about it. The general premise is good, but it's hard to say how those things apply to React/UI development. I lack advice about when to follow a particular pattern. But, most of it makes sense so I'm still reading.

Books I've read #

Polish: Wałkowanie Ameryki by Marek Wałkuski. That's a book I wanted to read for a couple of years now to learn more about the USA. It's nice to better understand the culture of people I work with for so many years now.

Personal Thoughts #

I bought a Kindle Scribe:

To be honest, I only use it as a bigger e-reader, but this is what's great about it. It needs to be impossible to do anything else on it and I was wasting way too much time on my iPad. Anyone saying that it's all just tools and only your intent and willpower matter doesn't know what they are talking about or are incentivized to be saying it. Unfortunately, I don't see an alternative to a smartphone.
