    1. In-depth walkthroughs of Rust solutions for Advent of Code 2020 by Amos Wenger (fasterthanlime)

      I always enjoy Amos' writing, he does a great job of walking through topics in depth and explaining each step of the way. It looks like he's starting a new series to work through all of this year's Advent of Code problems, which will probably be a good read for people interested in Rust (whether you already have experience with it or not).

      Only the first day is up so far, but the overall series page is here, and individual links:

      I'll update this post with new links as the new parts come out, and possibly bump it occasionally.

      I thought it'd be fun to see how some of you keep your computer organized. Do you follow some general scheme, keep it arbitrary, throw everything on the Desktop or in Downloads or just abuse the search bar?

      Feel free to go as general or as in-depth as you want.

      I once was a web developer and worked with classic ASP and ASP.NET. I stopped developing altogether around 2006-2007 and never looked back. When I was developing, my experience was that I'd receive paid projects from clients and would just work on these my self. There were no outside nor collaborative developers.

      Obviously, things have changed since then. I'm fairly new to FOSS, git, Django, and Python.

      However, I've been developing a blog web app for AskBibleScholars.com and would like to start alpha testing it. I've heard that Heroku could be a good place to start.

      Do you have any recommendations for me moving forward?
