Which programming language to learn first

Many people think that they want to "learn how to code", but they don't stop to consider what they want to make.

  • JavaScript is unavoidable if you want to get into front-end development, but many people jump into it without considering what they're trying to do.
  • Many computer science programs start with Python, perhaps because it has a simple syntax and robust documentation.

If you want to be a developer, start with the end in mind: What do you want to make?

Take ownership of your Bitcoins

Bitcoin works because when it comes to keeping track of where the coins went or who has how many coins, you don't have to trust a person or a central entity to hold your coins. Your coins are yours. That is if you hold the private key to your Bitcoins.

People that use exchanges to buy Bitcoin are keeping their coins on these exchanges. But, leaving your coins on an exchange does not mean those coins are yours. You simply trust the exchange to give them to you if you request it. But that can be a problem as these exchanges can be hacked.

1926, the last remaining wolves were killed in Yellowstone National Park. It was the outcome of a centuries-long campaign to rid North America of its wolf population.

Wolves were viewed as a nuisance. They killed valuable livestock and created a barrier against our drive to conquer the West. Our bid to eradicate them was swift and effective but carried unexpected consequences.

The removal of the wolves resulted in reduced pressure on the elk population, triggering a cascade of ecosystem-wide devastation.

Best practices and the future of confirmed action

The confirmation design pattern isn’t something to be taken lightly. If applied erroneously, or not at all, users may commit unintended havoc. 

Confirmations ask a user to verify whether they want to proceed or cancel a requested action. Confirmations are used for destructive actions, like deleting a photo album, or consequential actions, like publishing this article.
