Welcome to Week 9!

Happy Thursday, friends! This week I dug into my old bookmarks and found a number of great programming articles, and one link about nutrition.

  1. Architecture of Consoles | A Practical Analysis 🎮 - This collection of articles dives into the hardware of various game consoles. It starts with the NES, and even includes interactive features to demonstrate graphics and audio features.
  2. Be nice to your cache 🚀 - This post is over ten years old, but the advice is still extremely relevant. Organizing your data access patterns is crucial for high performance.
  3. Leapfrog Probing 🐸 - A good refresher on hash table implementation and an interesting probing technique.
  4. How the heck does async/await work in Python 3.5? 🐍 - A few years ago async/await was the new cool thing in Python and Javascript. This post by my good friend Brett explains how it works in Python.
  5. Eat This Much 🍽 - This is an app for meal planning. It is the easiest tool I’ve found for quickly entering food types and portions, and getting stats back out (calories, macronutrients, etc). Full disclosure: this is an affiliate link.

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