Things we wish we knew when we were learning to code

Cliffs:

  1. You’re already a developer
  2. Work on things you like
  3. It’s easier than you think — just don’t give up
  4. Build your network
  5. Don’t always try to produce elegant and efficient code
  6. Learn Git sooner than later
  7. Work closely with other developers
  8. Learn patterns, not tools
  9. You’re always going to be learning

Top 10 Countries in Which Bitcoin is Banned

List of Countries that have Banned Bitcoin:

Thailand – The Thai treasure banned bitcoin outright.

China – The Chinese treasure enacted policies on bitcoin that pretty much restricted the use of the virtual currency.

Taiwan – The country’s Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) blocked efforts to install Bitcoin ATMs in the country and restricted its use as an alternate currency.

India – The Indian’s central bank published a lengthly document against the use of bitcoin. If the country is not accepted by the central banking system, it’s pretty much useless.

Germany – The German government and central bank Bundesbank formally accepted bitcoin as a private virtual currency but not as a public currency.

Bolivia – The developing country claims bitcoin was created by the United States government to wage financial warfare on other countries!

Russia – The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office says “Systems for anonymous payments and cyber currencies that have gained considerable circulation — including the most well-known, Bitcoin — are money substitutes and cannot be used by individuals or legal entities.”

Progress #6

Past few days, I have been occupied with Cryptocurrency (Digital Currency). Lots to learn about Bitcoins and other altcoins. I will write a blog post on this later.

Currently reading the book, JavaScript and Jquery by Jon Duckett.

I am half way reading this book, about 600ish pages.

Pros:
Lots of good content
Good explanation and in detail

Cons:
Lots of jumping to pages (eg. on pg 300 etc)
Too much information
Not much practical, pretty much a bible

Overall it is a good book. I think for me, I am more a practical person like doing video tutorials. In the past, I learned Visual Basic from a book and it worked for me. I guess the VB book was pretty much explanation, write this code and do it yourself. I haven’t coded much since JavaScript 30 for the past few weeks. Maybe I am losing motivation cos JavaScript is a mind-blowing programming language like #wtf? I think reading the book is boring me to bits and trying to finish it before I head to the next step.
