Exploring Go

A few months ago, I tried to learn Go. I did it just out of curiosity and because I heard many great things about this programming language. 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.

Distractions And How I Try To Avoid Them

Today I had no university. But that didn’t mean I had nothing to do. I had a lot to do. I had to learn so much for my exams next week! But today I also noticed how hard it is to ignore distractions. Distractions are everywhere. A few examples: I want to write a simple mail to someone at the company, but I find another mail… I want to do some online exercises but while typing the URL into the address bar, my eye catches something in the auto completion list… A notification appears on my phone and instead of turning it off, I keep using it and eventually end up watching YouTube videos instead of learning.

Why I Like Playing With Technology

Technology is awesome. Technology can simplify life, but it can also be fun. Playing with technology (doesn’t matter if it’s software or hardware) always fascinated people. And I’m one of them. I recently played a lot with software on my notebook. I found out that a program called “Snap” (not Snapchat) isn’t working somehow. I tried to fix it and tried many ways, but didn’t succeed. As a workaround, I installed another program with the name “Flatpak”.
