Work cycles I’ve read this Work Cycle framework to be more productive with your daily routine. Suggests an alternative to Pomodoro technique, in which you are to write down the contents of the goal, then split in small chunks (periods) of time to complete the individual tasks, then debrief at the end of the period and at the end of the cycle. An analogy could be a double-loop Pomodoro technique for tasks.

After writing more and more bash scripts for a client, I’ve decided to write down my thoughts about it. This assumes you have some knowledge about bash, as it is not intended as a beginner’s tutorial. Why bash scripts? Bash is present in almost every unix/linux-based stack, now some Windows as well. An exception is the ‘alpine’ docker images, which have a smaller, lighter shell (more on that later) Everything that you can automate, you can do from bash.

Context For a client, we have worked on a service that works with files (containing sensitive data) that get corrupted very often. The use case is generally: Two/Three file opens per day One modification per 10 file opens One corruption per 100 file opens Initial solution The initial solution was just to copy the file (file.txt) before opening, after closing. This results in two files (YYY-MM-DDTHH-mm-ss_before_file.txt, YYY-MM-DDTHH-mm-ss_after_file.txt).
