Engineering Team and Management Principles
Principles for building a great engineering team culture by Adelein Ro
0) The first line of code you should write for any feature is "What are we building, why are we building it, and why now?",
Eg start with a Tech design or a Spike
1) Dig deep and wide into the functional and non functional requirements of what you are building, disambiguate with product
or stakeholders, spell out what they have not been able to. Spill out details as part of tech design, get agreement
from product and stakeholders.
2) Engineers need to be able to find indirect or direct mentors, people they can learn best tech and
people practices from on a day to day basis.
3) Need challenging work that is transferable outside the company.

Entrepreneurship Principles
Working backwards
Used Amazon among others, before creating a new feature or product create a press release for it. Iterate until it is well "Adopted" by the internal team.
Heading: Name the product in a way the reader (i.e., your target customers) will understand.
Subheading: Describe who the market for the product is and what benefit they get. One sentence only underneath the title.
Summary: Give a summary of the product and the benefit. Assume the reader will not read anything else so make this paragraph good.

Git - What I use every day
Flow 1 - Get ready to work on a repo
- Clone the repo you want to work on, you can get the repo name from the "Clone or download" green button in github
git clone
- Checkout a shared branch from the repo, in this case "develop" is the branch. You can get the branch name from "branch" dropdown menu in github
git checkout develop
- Create a private branch to work on. You will merge this branch to develop when you are done with your work and it is reviewed.
git checkout -b feauture/your-branch-name

Python Cheetcheat
Returns a sorted list => sorted(l)
Sort in place ==> l.sort([2,3,7])
# Reverse sorting by y in an (x,y) tuple list in
sorted([(1,2),(2,3)], key=lambda tup: tup[0],reverse=True))
sample = [('Jack', 76), ('Beneth', 78), ('Cirus', 77), ('Faiz', 79)]
sample.sort(key=lambda a: a[1])

Javascript Patterns
1) Avoiding nesting function by using scope support
You are passing 'this' so that the funcion has
access to this function's context
app.mavenRecipeCollection.getMavenRecipeByMeal(e.slug, e.mealChoice,
this.onSuccess_, this);
