Welcome to the 37th edition

Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩

This week I’ve continued helping colleagues and clients troubleshoot the monumental mess created by the discovery of a huge security vulnerability in log4j.

Aside from that, I’ve launched a new product (one more small and riskless bet), read a ton, and learn cool things about our world :)

I’ll tell you more about all that in a second. But before that, let me wish you a Merry Xmas in advance (or whatever else you decide to celebrate in the coming weeks :p).

Alright, let’s go! 🚀

Things I’ve learned

Some of the things I’ve learned this week

As I’ve announced two weeks ago, I’ve launched a paid version of this newsletter for those who want to learn faster with me. The price is pretty low and mostly aims to help me keep going as a creator.

Whenever I read articles, books, and watch videos, I take tons of notes. I capture everything that resonates with me and that I find interesting: ideas, thoughts, quotes, stories, etc.

Next year, I’ll be reading even more non-fiction books, and I’ll share summaries and learnings with my members.

Currently, the topics I’m most interested in are: entrepreneurship, bootstrapping, knowledge management, design, psychology, and neuroscience. Of course, software development and IT are still near and dear to my heart ;-)

As part of this initiative, I intend to share more and more of what I learn, day after day, week after week.

If you want to support my work and join our learning community, then hop on the train with us 🎉
