Hello again dear readers!
I guess one could say this week was a bit slow for me. I didn't really touch most of my existing projects and barely tried any new stuff. Although I would say I did some interesting things:
- I broke my mind with Donald Knuth's arrow notation (video by Numberphile here) and the whole 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +… = -1⁄12 thing (video by Numberphile here)
- I finally dabbed into [Erlang][erlang] and tried to implement the
aforementioned arrow notation. By the way, programmers, beware! While Erlang
natively supports big integers, the
math:powfunction returns a float, which may lose you some precision.
- I worked a bit on this blog's theme. Nothing too serious, just a couple minor adjustments.
I think the prime thing that has "happened" this week is my continuous gripe with game development… But that would probably have to wait until I have my game (relatively) going, and then I'll recount my plights in a separate post.
Speaking of neat, here's another thing I've stumbled upon recently: Simple Icons, a set of SVG icons for a variety of brands. Would definitely be using those when I get around to upgrading this blog's theme!
Also, an article I've read quite a long time ago but only rediscovered it this week: Falsehoods programmers believe about names. An extremely interesting read!
Anyway, that's all for this week folks! Thank you very much for reading, and I hope you like those picks. Please do leave a comment below! Would be happy to receive one from you all!
