Intern's guide to Dublin
I spent the last three months in Dublin, on an internship with Microsoft. The experience was great and I could recommend it to anybody, but that’s not what I wanted to talk about this time. Whenever you move from one place to another there’s a certain amount of know-how that makes your new life easier/better/more predictable and that knowledge usually comes with time. By the end of my internship I felt at home in Dublin and now I’d like to share some tips with you.
online machine learning course
In the last three months of the last year I had the pleasure of taking part in an online machine learning course, taught by prof. Andrew Ng of the Stanford University. The course is already over, so it might seem old news, but next edition should start any time now. If the topic of machine learning seems interesting to you in any way I can really recommend it.
TDD in C++
a screencast in Polish
For my classes I recorded screencasts about TDD, and, because lately I’m focused mostly on c++, I decided to dive into google test instead of the regular jMock and Mockito. Initially I wanted to make it a tutorial showcasing all the tools within the library, but it ended up being a TDD Kata solving example with a short introduction about how to set up the development environment.
