Welcome to issue 14 of Hacker Bits!
You gave us feedback, and we're making some adjustments to Hacker Bits.
What we're hearing is that the 3 key themes continue to be:
- Learning more
- Working less
- Staying current
Additionally, Hacker Bits will move towards an email magazine/newsletter format.
Although you love the content of the magazine, you found the PDF/Yumpu format too heavyweight. We get it. With a busy professional or student life, there's too much friction to open up the magazine.
Also, there's content that you'd love to see in the magazine (e.g. technology + societal impact, more C/C++) that aren't featured.
With our new newsletter format, we hope to better serve you. If you have a few minutes, please hit reply ande let us know what you think. (The email only goes to Ray and Maureen)
