A refactored digest of my reading of the month.

A short introduction to give a bit of context :

I have been looking for a way to share on a regular basis some of my learnings. I tend to go through a pretty large amount of content as part of my work and in general. So here I will try to provide it as a structured digest.

The goal is to provide an interesting selection of content both practical and conceptual to help advancing how to use tech to solve real problems.
