What are your favourite anti-procrastination tools?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-06-28 16:51

First, I recognise the irony of posting this on Reddit!

I'm sure I'm not alone in being distracted from work when at the computer. I often sit down at the computer to get some academic work done only to waste several hours browsing the internet or some other distraction.

I recently had limited access to the internet for a few days. I found that my productivity greatly increased and I felt that during the time I did spend at the computer I was way more focused on the task to be completed. I slept better as I would put away the laptop at a set time rather than aimless browse the internet until I fell asleep.

It really made me reappraise my working environment and be realistic about the bad habits and poor attention span I've developed. I can't go internet free, and I don't trust willpower alone, so I was thinking that there must be some software out there to give me a helping hand.

If anyone has made a serious attempt to remove similar distractions I'd love to hear about it.

An introduction to functional programming in JavaScript

LXer - Wed, 2017-06-28 16:08
When Brendan Eich created JavaScript in 1995, he intended to do Scheme in the browser. Scheme, being a dialect of Lisp, is a functional programming language. Things changed when Eich was told that the new language should be the scripting language companion to Java. Eich eventually settled on a language that has a C-style syntax (as does Java), yet has first-class functions. Java technically did not have first-class functions until version 8, however you could simulate first-class functions using anonymous classes.read more
