Welcome! I want to share with you some things I’ve learned about computer science. I hope to spark conversations, meet people, and have a bit of fun along the way. I will try to strike a balance between practice and theory, rigor and accessibility. I hope you’ll enjoy.
My first “serious” post is about memory models, but before we start, here is a drink recipe that is as much revealing about my origins as it is tasty. I came to it recently, after being introduced to Aperol. I call it “Aperinha”, since it is a variation on the caipirinha recipe. Without further ado, you’ll need:
- One lemon
- A dash of sparkling water
- One and a half tea spoon of honey
- Some slices of fresh ginger
- Place the ginger and the honey in a mug. Boil a bit of water and pour about an ounce over the ginger and honey, let it steep.
- Peal back the lemon a bit, cut it in half lengthwise and cross-sectionally. Place the lemon in a glass and squeeze and mash it a bit to get some of the juices out
- Mix in one shot of cachaça, one shot of Aperol, and dash or sparkling water.
- Mix in the ginger honey water. Add ice and stir.
Now that you are feeling good, to the first post.
