  4. Going Remote: The Parts No One Tells You

    A lot of companies are allowing their workers to stay remote. Which is awesome. But the situation will now be drastically different. You see, before, everyone was remote.

  9. Design Sprints and the Academia

  11. A Look Into Bloom Filters with Ruby
