There's always something going on.
Writing public notes of some thing I've thought about takes less time than completing all of them. So I'll see if I can keep this list making sense.
I can say that this is probably my favorite programming language. It continues to be my go-to language to hack with on fun project even though I very rarely use it at work (I work a Amazon)
I've been using angular since April 2014 and I've come to like it quite a bit. Although opinionated, I like the clean separation of concerns, bi-directional binding and the feel of single page applications.
I've been a git fan for the last 10 years and I love how it eventually took over as the default soruce control system in so many places.
I like visualizing data, and I wish I spent more time working with it. Although it might feel a little unintuitive when you first learn D3, I like how it keeps track of what's entering the chart, already in it, or leaving with its enter-update-exit pattern. It really does help you focus on the data and spend less time on corner cases that might affect the chart.
Three great python libraries that really work amazingly well together. It's my go-to toolset to munge or analyze data when I know nothing about it.
