Worth Sharing - October 2019

October 22, 2019
tags: worth-sharing

I consume a lot of content daily, may it be blog-posts podcasts, non-fiction books, fiction books, youtube video, video courses, audiobooks and many more.

Those contents are about very different topics, from drawing, to self productivity, writing, programming, computer science, photography or anything I find particularly interesting at the moment.

For the past year, I tried to be more aware of the content I consume and started saving in a list of everything that resonated with me particularly.

These are some of the content I consumed in october that I enjoyed the most and feel like are worth sharing!

Interview with James Clear and Cal Newport

When two authors of books I enjoyed such as Atomic Habits and Deep Work talk about how their theories complement each other I’m all ears.

Cool tricks and techniques while filming combined with proper editing allow the viewer to get sucked into the content, this is why I love to see behind the scenes and commentary about the how’s and why of video making

Phoenix LiveView 6 months later

When Phoenix LiveView was first presented it looked cool but still felt hacky to me, this video shows the progresss made in the past months, I was blown away by what the project was able to achieve


I found most of these content just because of others shared them, by sharing these myself I hope that someone else can find and enjoy them as much I did
