3) Reusable Code: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
About This Article: The mythical "reusable code" idea has existed for decades. It showed up shortly after the first lines of code were written. We preach reusability and sometimes strive for it, but it rarely becomes a reality. I've seen various levels of success with this over the years. Everything from "we have a reusable library that 75 percent of us use" to "we have shared code libraries here, but never use them in your projects."

4) Var vs Let in JavaScript
About This Article: In this article, we would be discussing the long run debate of var vs let in Javascript. We would also be discussing why the usage of let is increasing in dev communities.

7) A Primer on Data Compression
About This Article: Let's talk about statistical mechanics for a second. Suppose we have a system of 4 particles, labeled a through d, each of which can be in one of two states. We can call them the 0 state and the 1 state. A particle has one "unit" of energy when it's in the 1 state, and no energy when it's in the 0 state.

9) Tic-Tac-Toe with the Minimax Algorithm
About This Article: In this article, I'd like to show an implementation of a tic-tac-toe solver using the minimax algorithm. Because it's such a simple game with relatively few states, I thought that tic-tac-toe would be a convenient case study for machine learning and AI experimentation. Here I've implemented a simple algorithm called minimax

15) Deploying With Distillery and Docker
About This Article: I use Distillery to generate Erlang releases for my Elixir applications. Through this post, I'll explain how I generate the releases that get shipped to production.
I use Docker to ensure that the final Erlang release is always the same across production instances. This approach also allows me to avoid generating the release on production, which means my production instances stay slimmer by not having Erlang, Elixir, and Node installed natively.
