Some of the most important relationships in my life formed around this team. It’s time for them to change the name.

We, the NFL, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black People. We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter.

“While you may confront instances where learning a new tool or technique will make you meaningfully different to your customers, these instances are rare, and you should probably avoid them if you can.” In my experience these instances are common and unavoidable. 😀

Messaging. What goes into messages (Enterprise Integration Patterns), how to get them from point A to B (SQS, kinesis, kafka, rabbitmq, redis), how to consume them reliably, how to deal with failures.

A retrospective on a recent project with the StopCOVID team. I was pleasantly surprised to see that building on a serverless platform encouraged us to make better architecture decisions.

Lol nope. Turned down a few offers and I’ve been working on a programming project in go while road tripping in the southeast US. Heading back to NYC this week and then I need to get a job and be a grownup again.

To my former gang at Q, I'll always be grateful for your energy and commitment during some crazy times. Whether you're staying or moving on, good luck. Don't hesitate to get in touch if I can be useful or if you just want to catch up.

I'd watch this talk before implementing multi-lingual microservices at a startup. It changed my mind on the subject.

naw, you could build something maintainable on node/typescript. The reason I brought up scrapping - if you were looking to throw something away after 3-6 months then it doesn't make sense to worry about future needs for static typing and async support.

Node/typescript probably easiest to hire for

Of course, I'm making assumptions that the backend isn't a throwaway and will continue to grow for years.

I want static typing, good async support, tools that help me get up and running quickly. So, yeah, I think I like kotlin/springboot. Maybe go or node/typescript. Down on python if I'm starting from scratch.

For the last 3 jobs spanning 9 years, I've used the Django framework, with success. I've been thinking some rough edges - where Django, Rails and similar frameworks can encourage poor decisions that slow down development. Here's the first post in a series:

64% of the news is covered by journalists. The rest is covered by Smoot.

Right. Also fails to admit any personal responsibility for the failures of the team, as a good leader would. I don’t know why anyone with options would work for Snyder. The petty behavior and bad management are obvious from how he’s handled the last few weeks.

Trying to write a post about a frustrating technical problem without spending too much time on the highly correlated Conway's Law problem.
