Tidy First?

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/08

Reminder to myself to check out of the Tidy First? book by Kent Beck got out yet.

I discovered he was writing it after reading this tweet:

Like Extreme Programming, which I used before I even know about the term, Tidy First is my natural way of approaching code: step by step tidying small spots, so I get a feel on the why and how of the code. For me, tidying consists of very small refactorings. I am anxious to see what it means for Kent.

Apple M1 ARM based Mac as a developer: docker and brew will take a while to be working at all or supported

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/13

Important to consider as both a developer and end-user when switching architectures:

Is all my software working and supported on the new architecture.

For many Mac developers, at least docker and brew are important.

Bad news here:

  • Docker will likely take months before it runs, and then only support ARM images
  • Brew will likely take months to get supported.
