I took Amtrak's Coast Starlight from SF to Santa Barbara once... highly recommended. It passes through parts of the state that you can't see any other way.

My favorite is Whistle Pig Rye. But I've really been enjoying Basil Hayden Bourbon as of late.

It's really important for your hobbies to be different than your work. For example, my work is writing code while drinking La Croix. My hobby is writing code while drinking whiskey.

A benefit is that rather than new users learning your API, they are learning the language itself. All abstractions leak... avoid the temptation to create new ones in a quest to make things "easier". Really great thoughts from .

e.g. don't write methods like def load_data(filename): data = json.load(filename) # ... This means *you* are responsible to support every imaginable filetype/database/etc. Instead write methods like def load_data(data_dict): # ... Let your users use the language.

Really nice ideas in 's keynote: Let Them Code! It's tempting to build package APIs that do everything for the user, but this can be constraining in the long run. Instead build APIs that allow the user to take advantage of general language features.

So, it happened... I had to excuse myself for a quick bathroom break. While giving the opening keynote address. In front of 1600 people. The talk went well other than that, though, so I got that going for me
