I want 2 do project. tell me wat 2 do.

What a great book, packed with a lot of advice, guidelines, and methodologies which will be of great help to all people working in the technology world or want to start contributing to the F/OSS world.

Shakthi has made all the point so precise and meaningful that I have a sweet smile on my face(you can relate to lot of things from the book) while reading the book. Shakthi has covered very important topics ranging from mailing list guidelines, project guidelines, and communication which one might realize late that how helpful these things can be in their profession.

Here is example from the book where Shakthi explaining how Experience is the the best teacher with the help of (a + b)² proof and show that rote learning does not last long.

Figure: Illustrative proof of
(a + b)² = a² + b² + 2ab

Proof: The area of the square is (a + b)², which is same as the same as the sum of the areas comprising the square, which is, a² + ab + ab + b² = a² + b² + 2ab.

The best part I like about the book, the quotes that open each section and example that makes reading the book more enjoyable. I enjoy every line of the book and love the way how Shakthi has encouraged the entrepreneur mindset with all other things one should think of. Its great book that one should give a read once.

Music for productivity

Past few days back I have finished my Learning How to Learn course from Coursera recommended by Jason Braganza.

So here sharing a piece of knowledge from the course, that can really help you to increase productivity. We all love to hear music while working, but did you ever give a thought about which music genre you should here while working? So, here is straight advice from people who have tried this out.

Classical Music : If your work involves numbers or attention to detail

Pop music : If your work involves data entry or working to deadlines

Ambient music : If your work involves solving equations

Dance music : If your work involves proof-reading and problem solving

 


Love to hear from you if you know more music genre, or have playlist of your own productive music. Thanks to  Mark Solarski for the cover image.
