» C++ is the new Python

C++ is making a comeback. It ranked fourth on the Tiobe Index as the most popular coding language this month after being rated top by 8% of people. That doesn't exactly put it on a par with C or Java or Python at 11-12%, but it does mean that C++ is up there with the favourites- and that it's continuing a run of increasing popularity that began at the start of 2020.

If it's not broken, don't fix it, should you?

“Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” -John D. Rockefeller.

For a long time, I’ve heard the phrase “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” and most of the time it’s never thought further, we just accept it as we have inherited it from our collective wisdom, but I sometimes ask myself if we should just think a bit differently. Maybe it deserves a bit of new polish the time has taken from it.

The Hidden World of Systems Programming Languages

Have you ever wondered what are the programming languages that power our modern world? From my perspective living in Latin America, I see great trends towards Web Development. People learning JavaScript (in many flavors and many frameworks: Node.js, Angular, React, Vue, Vanilla, TypeScript, etc.) and perhaps PHP. These languages and technologies present great opportunities for serving the ever-emerging market of Software Web Development, but have you ever thought about the programming languages that actually enable us the modernities of today?

Diversity of Knowledge is Key

“People would do better if they knew better.” -Jim Rohn

Let’s imagine for a moment you haven’t yet figured out in life your professional inclinations. Wouldn't it be valuable if you knew since you were a child, what you exactly needed to achieve your dreams?

I have no children myself, but I highly recommend that parents expose their children to different activities or introduction to professions and let them explore something they might enjoy later in life. They will thank you later, I’ll guarantee that.

My first steps in a fintech journey

Ever wondered how opaque Latin American financial markets are? Especially for the parallel ones. Mysterious and ever-changing, unstable and almost with own personality. The opaqueness I’m referring to is mostly about how rates in currency pairs seem to change a lot and how people tend to interpret these at their convenience.
