  • Simple tip to communicate better: SUA (Stop Using Acronyms)!
    Ask five managers the top 3 things their current company can improve and seven of them will list Communication in some shape or form. The most interesting fact is that the same managers when they need to deliver a message (like... in... communicate) with their team they do things like this: "gm GGHV team, FYI, regarding the project WST I would like to point out that the WW team (which is part of GRC btw) found an issue with our IDP.

  • How to configure a fancy terminal
    My work machine changed a few times in the past 6 months: I went from a Dell running Ubuntu to a MacBook running macOS and back to Windows with now a Lenovo ... sheesshhh! The hardest part for sure was the muscle/brain memory when I had to switch from doing Ctrl + C (Ubuntu) to Command + C (MacOS) back to Ctrl + C (Windows) using a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard that doesn't have a Command button (it's the windows button in this case).

  • Time to make something that looks good
    I'm not a designer but I do find Design a fascinating world and of course it has many different specializations just like any field. "UI/UX Design" is the term you will most likely hear in the software development industry and they are an abbreviation for User Interface (UI) Design and User Experience (UX) Design. Design Thinking is captivating either and comes next on "industry appearance" but not linked with the context we are trying to talk about here. Today's post is all about making something that is visually pleasant (UI) …
