Much needed #yoga yesterday evening in between babysitting a big deploy.
"Primed to Perform" by Neel Doshi and Lindsay McGregor #read
AlphaStar blew my mind and occupied most of my weekend.
As casual SC2 player, it blows my mind to think that no human being directly taught AS to play SC2, but instead gave it the ability to learn from thousands of replays, causing it to somehow give the appearance of intent and decision-making from mimicking and refining behaviours that it "observed".
I always say "be thoughtful about method access control on your objects (e.g. private/protected/public)".
Unfortunately in Ruby you can still invoke a private method using obj.send(:method_name).
My refactor today broke code that was doing just that. :sad_panda:
Private methods are private for a reason, people.
me: "We didn't have tablets when Dada was growing up. They weren't invented yet."
e: "So you were too early for the tablets to be there. So you had to wait longer?"
Did my #yoga. Relief!
Also, did #yoga last night.
