Good day, it has been a while since my last post. Have been quite busy at work and home. The holidays are approaching so things might improve somewhat.
In this post I am not going to write code. I am going to let you know about things that called my attention in the past few weeks.
I am currently reading “Software Engineering at Google Lessons Learned from Programming Over Time”, curated by Titus Winters, Tom Monshreck & Hyrum Wright, published by O’Reilly. And yes, it is the book with the pink flamingo on the cover. Continue reading “Software Engineering at Google Lessons Learned from Programming Over Time”
Good day! It is a Friday in the month of May. The forecast called for rain and thunderstorms. We only received some rain. It is good to have some rain because things were starting to dry up. When vegetation dries up it may catch on fire.
In this post I will attempt to solve two flavors of the same problem. I believe one can create a few more problems by changing just a few words in the requirement. This will become clear as we read the requirements and describe the differences.
I found this problem named Movies on Flight in the LeetCode web site. Apparently Amazon has been using different versions on some of their technical assessments. Continue reading “Movies on Flight”
It is Friday afternoon and we are still observing social distancing restrictions and working from home. That said, things are slowly relaxing and more people are out and about. The number of cars on the road has more than tripled since the stay home order started a couple months ago. Please observer social distancing and wear a mask when in public. It is for your well being, your family and friends, your country, and all human beings on this planet.
Currently I am running some tests and writing documentation on some code I wrote earlier during the week. During idle times I am putting together the contents for this post. Hope to be done in the next hour or so. My wife left a minute ago to walk (keeping social distancing) with a neighbor. The day is sunny but rather cold. The temperature is in the upper 40’s.

I believe it was Albert Einstein who said “Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking”. I like to read in order to learn about different subjects, mostly associated with computer science and technology. I also like to experiment with what I am reading in order to verify that I understand the material. Continue reading “Using the MongoDB Shell”
If you follow me on Twitter (@john_canessa) you have noticed that in the past couple months or so I have been posting tweets regarding articles in Medium. The site is geared to creating posts which you could do using your own web site (e.g., www.johncanessa.com). The beauty is that many talented individuals in different fields are posting there. The site organizes them by categories and presents the articles indicating the estimated reading time. One of these days I will probably start posting there.
