Quizlet

Published on in 🔗 Links

This semester, as already mentioned, I take a Spanish course. Of course, learning languages also includes learning vocabulary. I looked for suitable apps and found Quizlet. I like the app even more than I thought. For example, I can create “learning sets” on the computer and learn from anywhere on my mobile phone. And various learning functions also ensure that I not only create virtual flashcards, but also learn the vocabulary.

Exploring Go

I also use much software, which is written in Go, like the generator for my websites (Hugo), Git server (Gitea), feed reader (Miniflux) or Docker. All are written in Go and have in common, that they have an incredible performance and are really easy to setup, because it’s possible to compile everything to a single statically linked executable.
