Welcome to Week 12!

Hey folks! It’s summer time here in Vancouver, I hope you’re staying cool wherever you are. Let’s get to the links:

  1. The Garner Report: 12 Evidence-Based Tips To Lower Stress and Anxiety 💪 - Dan Garner is a strength and nutrition coach (also Canadian 🇨🇦), and reads a lot of research studies on these topics. He has a great podcast that I’ve learned a lot of actionable knowledge from.
  2. How Does a Triangle Choke Work? - Drew Weatherhead Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 🥋 - From the outside the triangle choke may look strange or awkward, but if you’ve ever been caught in one, you will know they are no joke. Drew (another Canadian 🇨🇦) breaks down the mechanics of the submission. The more you know about it, the better you can defend from it and attack with it.
  3. FODMAP Food List 🍽 - It might sound odd, but I think digestive health should be talked about more in the tech industry. I had to go on a strict FODMAP diet last year to clear up some issues, and I wonder if there are other tech workers living with discomfort unnecessarily. It’s an awkward topic but life gets much better when digestion is working as intended.
  4. VS Code can do that?! ⌨️ - Visual Studio Code is a popular code editing tool with an ever-growing feature set. This site has a list of interesting features, including videos and written descriptions of each.
  5. A string processing rant 📖 - If you’ve every worked with strings and wide-character strings in C++, this rant may seem familiar. Fabian writes in a conversational style, walking through his process of diving into a performance issue with unexpected results.

Do you have any questions or comments? Let me know! Thanks for reading and talk to you next week!
