It's important for programmers to challenge themselves.

Creative and technical stagnation is the only alternative.

In the spirit of the new year, I've compiled twelve month-sized resolutions.

Each month is an annually renewable technical or personal challenge:

Read on for my suggestions.

Update 1: Also see what every computer science major should know .

Update 2: Translations available.

Update 3: 12 resolutions for grad students

Update 4: Added some updates for 2016.

Go analog

Programmers obsess over the discrete and the digital well past the point of diminishing returns.

Thus, small investments in the analog yield comparatively large gains.

Here's a starter list of analog activities to try, each of which takes about a month of dedicated effort to transition out of the novice (and into the seasoned beginner) stage:

Programmers tend to live sedentary lives, and we face unique health challenges from our occupation.

We tend to ignore these challenges.

Spend a full month each year tuning your exercise, diet and environment to promote durable healthy habits.

Go to a clinic each year to get your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar checked. Watch how these values change over time.

“Hey, Big Head ... ”

I swear, I will never again hear those words without thinking of my new favorite Instagram tribute account, BigHeadHanna . Since 2016, a 19-year old Italian member of Rih’s Navy simply known as “Lucia” has devoted her spare time to using PicsArt to alter pics of her idol, Rihanna, to resemble a Bratz doll. The results are surprisingly entertaining.

Now, why Lucia would want to do this is anyone’s guess, but she’s definitely a devoted fan, as she VIDA Statement Clutch Arctic bramble 3 by VIDA rBoV43b
: “The thing I like to do is to put some Rihanna music on, and then start doing my edits.” And apparently, her dedication has paid off—with a follow from Rihanna herself (Lucia has marked the date, June 4, 2017, in her bio).

“That’s the best notification I could ever receive in my whole life,” she told Babe. “I still think she sees all my pictures.”

We’d be lying if we said we didn’t go down a bit of a wormhole looking at all of Lucia’s big-headed reinterpretations of our favorite bad gyal. It was both a welcome chuckle in the middle of an otherwise busy workday, and weirdly meditative.

Of course, Lucia’s not the only Instagram user altering the looks of her faves; Beyoncé fan page Valentino Very V Rockstud Ruffled Shoulder Bag NebJ1LxJS0
reimagines Queen Bey as a plus-sized goddess, saying, “Beyoncé reigns on us all, no matter her shape.”

True ... though I think we all know Bey works pretty hard on that bod, especially after three kids. No word on if she’s a fan of her far-thicker alter ego, but since no cease and desist orders seem to have reached the Fattyonce page, we’re guessing the Queen is taking it in the body-positive spirit with which it was intended.
