Category Theory and Troubleshooting

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Tool Objects name was motivated by the title of the book Tool and Object: A History and Philosophy of Category Theory that I’m reading:

I realized that troubleshooting can be represented as a category of memory states (or collections of proximate states) as objects and troubleshooting tools as arrows.

We can also consider tools as categories with arrows as troubleshooting actions. In the latter case we can model a collection of tools and transformations (morphisms) between them as a functor.

Resume and CV: As a Book, 2nd Edition

Monday, October 11th, 2010

It’s time to update my old Resume and CV: As a Book that was on sale for almost 2 years to reflect exponential changes in objectives, skills, achievements and deliverables since summer, 2003. Actually the number of pages has doubled. The 2nd edition is planned to be 111th book scheduled for publication in December:

  • Title: Resume and CV: As a Book (2nd Edition)
  • Author: Dmitry Vostokov  
  • Paperback: 32 pages
  • Publisher: OpenTask (01 Dec 2010)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1-908043-00-9

The front cover color follows the proverbs about “green fields” (I also fixed a bug that was on the first edition front cover) :-)
