Log4j is the original sin that dooms (almost) all logging libraries I’ve worked with in different language ecosystems.

Thanks for all your work on Go, especially the network libraries. It remains to this date the best language I’ve written network services in. Good luck with whatever is next.

It was one of the best conference lineups I’ve seen! Would’ve included all the [English] talks, but wanted to maintain a balance. I ended up with about 50 talks which I whittled down to 30, and 8/50 were talks from Hydraconf!

That was on my best of 2018 list!

I’d definitely love a link to the video or even slides. I can edit my post to add it. It’s just so right my alley yet I think it was the only codemesh talk yet to be published. :(

There was one talk I really could not find either the video or the slides for. It’s from cocemesh London and I believe it’s the only talk on Fastly’s wasm compiler. I suspect it’d have gone on the list too, but alas, I have no idea what the content was about! 😞

Really? Lol 😆 If I did a good job of keeping this list updated throughout the year, I might publish it on 1/1. If not, it requires January weekends writing ✍️

Blogged: Best of 2019 in tech talks Topics include: - Linux - concurrency - Lots of malloc and mesh - performance - large scale computing - serverless - Spectre This is also the first year I’ve included presentations from academic conferences.

I can read (and write) a long-ish article, but watching a 50 min talk happens rarely (and the content needs to be really, really good). I’ve myself never gotten comfortable with public speaking. The only good argument in *favor* of public speaking has been this from

I’m not a compiler person, but is there any way not to make compilers just awfully academic/boring? I was mostly bored until we got to optimizations/memory management etc, which I found intetesting since suddenly ... “whoa - my program can go faster?” Maybe it’s just me. 🤷‍♀️

Kind of suspect if VCs were “technical enough”, the fundraising scene would look drastically different than it does now. Also suspect replying on which schools founders went to or if they worked for a big company in the past is just as effective as it is for hiring engineers.

Almost everything I see/hear about huge pages in Linux lend credence to why it's probably never to be used. Is there any particular scenario where it actually helps? Genuine question.

I’ve reached the age when the best form of self care is regular exercise. No matter how tired or stressed or anxious I feel, working out makes me feel happier and more positive.

To be fair, there are things not to like about Go. But I’d argue these weren’t ever significant enough to impede productivity or usability.

Go has quite a lot of things going for it all right: - blazingly fast builds (I miss this the most) - I can open a file of Go code and almost always understand what it’s doing - usable concurrency - static binaries that allowed for easy deployment What’s not to like?

Suspect a lot of it is due to the amount of marketing we’re seeing these days. I have something of a theory - if some tech has a startup or ten behind it, the hype:value ration can be safely inverted.

Aah - now I get it. All a part of “deploy from cron” endgame!

How do you refer to artifacts? Just tag it ‘latest’? And where does the metadata live (if you want to rollback etc)?
