Every reader knows that a book can change your life.
But what about the lives of an entire generation?
Miriam Tuliao, assistant director of central collection development at the New York Public Library, helped us come up with a list of 25 books that changed the course of history.
From the Torah to Orwell’s “1984,” these 25 titles have had a major impact (listed here in alphabetical order).
I got to be honest with you. My last posted i wrote it three days after my first post, but it was in draft for all these weeks by now i have started and finished the first level of HTML from Code Avengers and got to chapter 5 in the Book HeadFIrst Java. So far so good
So whats next? the CSS level 1 of Code Avengers and trying to finish HeadFirst Java before next year.
We ll see how much i accomplish and learn
Couple week ago i was brushing my teeth and this ideas came to my head…yeah out of the blue, it just came
I think its kind of cool and would help me a lot. The problem is that im not sure if i can do it using only Java =s
What i ll do is to begin during the weekends with Treehouse 2hrs on Sat and Sundays until i become a “web designerr” That inclues HTML, CSS, Javas Script
Then use code School to learn more in the future
So couple things to keep in mind!
Coffee is not harmful as long as you drink a max of 3 cups a day
its a good practice no to drink coffee during certain hours and drink it at other times because of the cortisol concentration in the blood is at its peak.
Here are the following time to not drink coffee and to drink it:
8 - 9am No
12 - 1pm No
1:30 - 5pm Yes
5:30 - 6:30 No
7 pm - ? “Yes”***
*** its not recommendable to drink coffee after 5-6 pm during the week if your sleep time is between 10 - 12 pm. It really depends on everyone’s body reaction but most people will have trouble sleeping if drank coffee at 7pm.
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

"If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something."

It’s Friday! Let’s celebrate the weekend!
After an exhausted research week
I decided to start learning Java, because there are a lot of Java jobs out there for junior developers and i can also code in Android. I also notice i can use Python, Ruby, Scala, Clojure with the JVM =)
I’m learning Java using the following websites:
What really works for me at the moment is
Pluralsight: doing the examples and trying different things
at the end of course 1 i ll try out the examples on Programmr.com
Then i ll take the Java Foundations 2 and i ll repeat the same exercise as before, using Programmr.com
Then i ll use Oracle Java Tutorial
i ll do the exercises at the end of chapters
or i ll jump back to udacity.com
I found the Udacity.com course on java a little bit confusing. Im not sure it it is because they use Bluej or what, but i got completely lost at the Lesson 3, even though i just got the concepts from Pluralsight course
i ll write more later as i finish the course on Java Fundamentals 1
