Going Vim

Vim or “Vi Improved” is a text editor that works in every terminal. Some people even consider Vim as the best text editor for programming. However, many people are also intimidated with its steep learning curve. Vim is a terminal-based text editor which means everything are operated through keyboard keys, there is no need to use the trackpad or mouse. This is actually what makes Vim powerful. One does not need to take their fingers off of the keyboard when writing in Vim.

Function Composition in Go

I’ve been playing with functional JavaScript for a while, especially partial applications and function composition, and I find those concepts are very helpful in my daily coding practices. At first, if you are short in mathematical logic systems (just like me), making sense anything functional could be a bit out of hand. Fortunately there are a lot of reading materials that do a great job explaining the concepts in an easy and pragmatic way.

On Learning to Code

My friend at office asked me recently “Can I learn to code by myself?”. You may have probably encountered one or two posts that talk about it elsewhere. And they point to the same answer as mine: “yes you can”. As a background, I receive a formal education in Information System (which had less computer science-related courses than computer science or informatics major) and it’s past a decade when I wrote my first Hello World!

Hello, my name is Nauval. I like building/crafting things. I code for living. I blog in my spare time.

Have a look around and don't hesitate to contact me with any comments, suggestions or even to just say Hi!
