Go Time #100: Creating the Go programming language featuring Rob Pike & Robert Griesemer |> News and podcasts for developers |> Changelog
Carmen and Jon talk with Rob Pike and Robert Griesemer (the creators of Go) about its origins, growth, influence, and future. This an epic episode that dives deep into the history and details of the how’s and why’s of Go, and the choices they’ve made along the way in creating this awesome programing language.
Today, we cover the second in a two-part series of podcasts on Time Management.
If you’re new to the show or you didn’t listen to last week’s podcast, it’s probably worth while going back and listening to the previous show first.
Otherwise, you’ll be joining the conversation half-way through and we all know how comfortable that feels.
We recommend 4 1/2 steps to analyzing your use of time
Roughly Assess Your Time - absolutely no materials other than pen and paper allowed!
Capture Your Priorities
Do a Rough Analysis
(part b, only for the truly committed) - Do a "Drucker" Analysis
Put Your Number One Priority on Your Calendar
We walked through steps 1 and 2 last week, today we cover the remainder.
Time management is a fallacy, we like to say.
Time doesn’t need you to "manage" it - it’s been getting along just fine without you for billions of years.
We can’t manage time.
But what we CAN manage is what we do with that time.
And yet, the overwhelming evidence is that managers do NOT "manage what they do with that time."
There’s a shocking CHASM between our behavior in this area and our knowledge of what to do.
In fact, Mark recently blogged on how busy everyone says they are, which irritates him.
He looks at their calendars, and there’s no EVIDENCE that they’re busy.
There are vast swaths of unscheduled time!
Peter Drucker, in the first prescriptive chapter of his seminal work, the Effective Executive, says it best (of course): "The output limits of any process are set by the scarcest resource.
In the process we call "accomplishment", this is time … Of the other major resources, money is actually quite plentiful … People … one can hire.
But one cannot rent, hire, buy or otherwise obtain more time."
So, the question is, how can managers start to become more efficient about using the time that each of us has at our disposal?
In fact, that’s a great way to state it:
STOP disposing of your time!
It’s not only your most precious resource, it’s also your most perishable!
This cast will get you started doing just that.
Recorded in front of a live audience at The California Theater in San Jose on Tuesday, 4 June 2019, John Gruber is joined by Craig Federighi and Greg Joswiak to discuss the news from WWDC 2019.
The kind of talk that only Bryan Cantrill of Joyent can give, one which (enthusiastically) explores the importance of leadership principles ranging from the Gettysburg Address to Uber and exhorts the audience to think about how they might consider and apply these lessons to their own organizations.
From ‘Jingle Bells Batman Smells’ to ‘Real Programmers Write in FORTRAN,’ Bryan Cantrill (@bcantrill) dives into how we share our collective knowledge and how we pass wisdom to future generations. He advocates for writing software with future generations in mind.
Bryan, the CTO of Joyent, and a core contributor to Solaris, ZFS, and DTrace, formerly a Distinguished Engineer at Sun, has recently picked up Rust. He’ll share his experience with us.
