Tips for Self-Learning Programming

My friend who’s learning programming asked me the other day: ‘What do you recommend for learn programming quickly?’. I learned programming by myself when I was in college, and over the years I’ve realized how I went about it in the hardest way possible. There are many things I could have done to learn at a much faster rate. Hence, I thought I’d look back and write down some of the things I’ve learned over there years about learning programming.

The most important tradeoff when modeling data in RethinkDB

A question many RethinkDB users commonly have is: “How do I model my data?”. Because RethinkDB is a NoSQL document store with no schema enforcement but with joins, people get a bit confused about how to structure their data. Should it be more like MongoDB or should it be more like SQL? How is data modeling in RethinkDB different form other databases? Is what I know now still useful? Data modeling in RethinkDB is so flexible that it can be a little overwhelming to decide how to structure your data, and it’s young enough that there aren’t a lot of battle tested best-practices out there. But, a lot of already established principles for data modeling are perfectly applicable in RethinkDB.

Why your query language should be explicit

A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with a developer about the product he’s working on and his experience with RethinkDB. He caught me off-guard when he mentioned that, when writing ReQL (RethinkDB’s query language), he always had a clear idea of what was going on and how the database was working as a whole. Didn’t that happened will all databases he uses? He was a Postgres guy, with a lot of SQL experience, and for him Postgres was always too complex to completely understand. If you really wanted to understand something in Postgres you had to dig into the internals. With RethinkDB, he explained to me, the queries themselves exposed a lot of the logic behind how the database works. This, perhaps counterintuitively, made using RethinkDB much easier.
