Good programmer is eternal student

Programming is not like most other professions. Programmer can't allow himself to relax, because technologies is always moving forward.

And if he does not follow this technologies, very soon, he will be useless for serious problems in IT world.

Good programmer is eternal student. He always should be on the lookout for new and more innovative solution, even if he knows good old solution for the problem.

How not to miss the right moment for changes?
  • Always read news in your focus area
  • Read new books by competent authors
  • Follow great projects
  • Try new solutions for old problems

Git private repositories: GitHub vs Bitbucket

I'm really enjoying to use GitHub. It's incredibly comfortable service for sharing code using Git public repositories. But when it comes to private repositories - prices are biting(22$/month for 20 private repositories).

That's why, i've decided to try BitBucket which suggests unlimited number of private repositories for 5 users.
Besides, you can easily import you repositories, SSH keys etc. from GitHub.

So, for me, BitBucket is the best place for private Git repositories. But for public repos, however, it's better to use GitHub, because it's the place where the community is. But who knows, maybe little by little community will be moved to BitBucket for public repositories too.
