2013 August Update: Canvas + Fantasy

This is short update as I'm really busy recently and it looks will be till mid-October.

Tech: #

**HTML5 Canvas Tutorial by Eric Rodwell ** - really good site! Strongly recommended!

HTML5 Canvas Cookbook by Eric Rowell - tutorial is better because interactive :) If you're going to run all code samples and play with them then it makes sense to buy it. Of course buying this book is a good way to help author :)

Clojure - Functional Programming for the JVM - unfortunately it is too boring for me, long and lacks any story/structure. Maybe good to easy find something you need by Ctrl-F. (No link because this is boring :)

Non-tech: #

Painted Man - Petera V. Bretta. - rather good 6/10

The Battle for Skandia: Book Four (Ranger's Apprentice) by John Flanagan - good for lazy day :)

The Eye of the World

The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, Book 1) by Robert Jordan - not really impressive story but good to read. I've read somewhere that consequent books are better.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandre Clare - really good book! Much better than I thought! :) Can recommend as easy book for lazy afternoon :)

In progress:

  1. World War Z by Max Brooks
  2. You Are Now Less Dumb by David MacRaney
  3. MongoDB 5-week course (2 weeks already done!)
  4. Memrise: Upper Intermediate Course


  1. Memrise: Advanced Vocabulary (I want to first finish Upper Intermediate Course)


  1. The Healthy Programmer by Joe Kutner
  2. Good Math by Mark C. Chu-Carroll

Next month will be really about work and holiday so I will have much less time.

I hope to finish MongoDB course and use Memrise/read books as I can with the same priority.
