This was my last month at Kiwi.com. After almost 2.5 years I am bidding farewell and starting a new journey at SumUp. While I don’t feel particularly moved by leaving I am incredibly grateful for the time I spent at Kiwi.com. I learned a lot, gained a lot of experience and most importantly, bootstrapped my career.
Returning old laptop and migrating to new one left me with a few precious files less. I’m considering backing up the whole laptop to one place or the other, so far, Backblaze seems like an optimal solution for me. I wrote a short post summarising current options for periodical MacOS backups.
This month I started learning rust to extend my portfolio of languages at hand. So far I enjoy rust greatly, it plays well into my weakness for fast, clean, concise, compiled languages. I started by implementing the Tiny Renderer which serves as a nice tiny intro into how OpenGL and software rendering works. I wanted to try this project myself for a long long time and by writing the solution in rust instead of C++ I can kill two birds with one stone. I made my solution public on GitHub: matoous/runderer and will come back to it later to fix all the issues and bad practices when I have more experience with rust.

- Love, Death & Robots volume 2, sadly underwhelming after the bar set by the first season. I mostly miss the deeper stories of the volume 1 such as Beyond the Aquila Rift or Zima Blue, volume 2 had only a few memorable episodes, specifically: Pop Squad, Snow in the Desert, All Through the House, and The Drowned Giant. Anyway, not all hopes are lost as volume 3 is already confirmed and in making.
