The Recurse Center, month 1

x86 assembly, boot sectors, and a weird programming language

I’m currently in New York City for three months, to attend the Recurse Center, a self-directed, community-driven educational retreat for programmers.

It’s one of the best experiences of my life! <3 One of the many helpful traditions and techniques is to do check-ins, where you talk about what you did, and what you plan to do. I’ve found doing daily check-ins in RC’s internal chat system immensely helpful.

So, to share a bit of what what I’m doing at RC, I thought I would just dump all of it here. It’s kind of raw, I didn’t replace the Slack-style emoji syntax with actual emoji, for example – partly because not all of them are offical emojis. :P Enjoy!

Hey all! I thought I’d try doing these check-ins everyone is raving about!

Moin! (In northern Germany, people use that as a casual greeting. A fitting reply would be: “Moin.” :D)

Hey :) Hope you had a relaxing weekend, and could recover from last week somewhat. I certainly did, took a long walk over Brooklyn Bridge and through the Financial District, and whew, this city sure is pretty!

Hey everyone, hope you had a relaxing weekend. I did a lot of touristy things in Manhattan, like walking along the High Line, visiting Times Square and the New York Public Library’s Schwarzman building. I also wrote a short, interactive horror story! :D

Hey, y’all! Hope you’ll have a great week! I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden yesterday – highly recommended, the cherry blossom is at its peak currently, and the conservatory showcases many bonsai trees, some of which are over 500 years old! :O
