Continental Terra Speed 700x35c review

Continental Terra Speed #1

Compared to two, three years ago, we have a lot of good tires for gravel in the market now. The problem is choice: we don’t know, what should we choice. Are newer tires better than older, like reviewed Gravelkings SK? There is only one way to check it: buy, ride and test. I’m still looking for best tires for my usage: a lot of tarmac, but often very bad quality, some gravel, preferably dry conditions because I don’t like mess. Last time I decided to try something other than Gravelkings AC/Mud, something probably faster. After reading a lot of reviews, a lot of comments, chose Continental Terra Speed in size 700x35c.

Docker volumes: cached vs delegated

Docker

Docker is amazing tool and can make developer work simpler, faster and more efficient. It has a lot of advantages and I have been using it very actively for some time. Unfortunately, I use it on Mac, and it has some big drawbacks. From my perspective, the biggest is performance. Docker for Mac and Docker of Windows uses small virtual machine in the middle, between your host and your containers. It’s ok and necessary, but always causes some performance degradation, especially on networking and any I/O operations. This post is about volumes cachings methods – we can use them to speed up Docker in any platform and should be used, if we can do this.

Why I get up early

Get up early

As I wrote in many posts before, I work remotely. It has a lot of benefits and I will write about them (and also about drawbacks) in one of future posts. One of these advantages is fact, that I don’t have to get up early, preparing and go to work. It’s true but… I still get up early, very early according to many people who know me. What time do I do this, why I do this, and why should you try this even if you work remotely? This post is about these things. Probably many people will prefer getting up later, but I think, it’s bad idea.

Vue.js: why event bus is bad idea

In February 2019 I wrote a post about global event bus in Vue.js. It’s a pattern to achieve very common thing: transform data not only from parent to child components, but also in reverse order. Event bus allows us to also emit events from parent to children and simply use methods for them. Unfortunately, because of many reasons, it isn’t good pattern and we should avoid it, if there are more possible options to use. After year and a lot of new experiences I can say: event bus is antipattern and should be avoided.  Why? In this short post, I will try to explain this in the simplest way I can. Of course, I open for discussion about that, so feel free to comment and write about your experiences.

Polar Vantage M – review

Polar Vantage M

As you can see on my blog posts, sport is important part of my life – I will write post about this, about big changes in my life, but not now. This post is a Polar Vantege M review – sport watch, which I’ve used from middle of 2019. In effect, it’s long-term review and have information about many, many updates pushed by Polar during last few months. This watch replaced few other devices: my Garmin watch and Bryton Rider bike computer. In short version I can say, that I’m very happy with Vantage M, but it’s not perfect device and not for everyone. If you are looking for nice training device, this post may be for you.
