I’ve seen lately a lot of hate towards dailies and I want to add my 2 cents on what I think is the real issue behind.
A common critique I’ve heard is that they are distractions and they are a waste of time.
Daily stand-ups, meetings that should last about 10 minutes, are a waste of time?
I think we have a hint on what can be going on here.
I’ve seen and heard of dailies that take too long. My personal record is attending one that lasted over an hour, but the average seems to be around 20–30 minutes.
A really easy and fast recipe, perfect to add some spice and flavour to your diet. Add a diet coke and you got yourself a non-cheat cheat meal!
It’s relatively low in carbs, but with plenty of healthy fats and it’s really satiating, which makes it a great dish for cutting.

A “Hello Triangle” is the first exercise a graphics dev does when learning a new API, analogous to the “Hello World” exercise with a new language.
They vary a lot in terms of complexity and length, from the brutal 1k lines of Vulkan to the mere 100 of Metal.
I had heard really good things about both Metal and Swift, so I decided to give them a try. And so far I’m impressed. Well done Apple!
Other APIs, like OpenGL, Vulkan or DirectX have really nice documentation and tutorials all over the web, however…
One of the most difficult challenges in any diet, whatever the goal, is to make it stick.
That’s why I always try to incorporate at least one meal a day that feels like a cheat meal.
Making it fun, and enjoyable while keeping the macros under control is the key for long lasting results and avoid binge eating.
So here’s one of my favourite meals, sometimes accompanied by a zero soda to give it that extra “cheat” touch.
It’s cheap, easy to do, satiating, and tasty. It’s full of protein to help your muscles recover from training and grow (or…
Minimalism. Feels like the latest lifestyle trend, and the YouTube algorithm will make sure that I see it everywhere.
The clean aesthetics, the pristine white-walled houses with efficient but sophisticated Scandinavian furniture, the promise of a happier, more focused and purposeful life. And of course, the slow-motion videos of pour-over coffee brewing… There’s a lot to love about it, and I was certainly hooked from the moment I saw my first Matt D’Avella’s video. I binge-watched all of his videos, subscribed to his podcast and followed so many other content creators / Minimalism gurus.
It became my hobby.
For the last 2 years, I’ve been in a loving relationship with Vim’s modal editing, but my actual setup has changed a lot with time (not even always using Vim itself), as, let’s face it, out-of-the-box Vim is pretty lacking for anything else than a quick edit of a couple of files.
Nowadays, I managed to create a comfy config that can even rival with VSCode (my other great love). These are the plugins I’m using atm, but I keep a more up to date version here.
First, the things that make my day to day easier, and take Vim…
NOTE 1: This is a “repost” of a Gist made from my notes around the summer of 2019, while I was learning Ray Marching. It is then quite basic content, and can even have mistakes. For more accurate and in depth content about raymarching, I highly recommend Iñigo Quilez’s blog.

Ray marching is a rendering technique based on calculating the distance to the scene’s surfaces.
Essentially, it consist in, starting from the camera’s PoV, and…
