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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
