Dare Obasanjo aka Carnage4Life - ASP.NET Caching vs. memcached: Seeking Efficient Data Partitioning, Lookup, and Retrieval

by brianwaustin (via)
I recently discovered memcached which is a distributed, object caching system originally developed by Brad Fitzpatrick of LiveJournal fame. You can think of memcached as a giant hash table that can run on multiple servers which automatically handles maintaining the balance of objects hashed to each server and transparently fetches/removes objects from over the network if they aren't on the same machine that is accessing an object in the hash table. Although this sounds fairly simple, there is a lot of grunt work in building a distributed object cache which handles data partitioning across multiple servers and hides the distributed nature of the application from the developer. memcached is a well integrated into the typical LAMP stack and is used by a surprising number of high traffic websites including Slashdot, Facebook, Digg, Flickr and Wikipedia. Below is what C# code that utilizes memcached would look like sans exception handling code

Announcing Hookah, the Web Hook Event Dispatcher « Web Hooks

by greut

The goal of Hookah is to take most of the work out of implementing web hooks. Ideally, Hookah will allow you to have all the features you need for successfully deploying web hooks and only need to add a few lines of code to your app. In fact, one line for each event! On top of that, the interface for Hookah is HTTP, so it’s not that different than directly invoking web hooks and works easily from any language.

webhooks are the last cool things.

10 Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice)

by greut & 2 others

I realized that instead of complaining, I could help by pointing to some papers which are easily available online and which (to me at least) point to some of the most interesting ideas about software. To me, these are classic papers which contain deep things you oughta know about code – the material you work with.

Rethink – "How do you motivate?"

by greut

I personally enjoy and benefit a lot from pair programming. It’s not something I get to do all of the time, but a solid pairing session with a good developer gets me results. I love sharing tricks, and discussing code before it’s written. However, there might be more to it than that.

Hampton and I started to speculate that we work best if someone is just there, keeping you on your toes. Someone to chastise you if you check Facebook, even if they don’t know the first thing about programming. We joked about hiring people to just sit there and watch us code. I laughed!

Well, I’m not laughing any more. I tried it, and it worked.

Don't hire a programmer if they don't code for fun

by greut

Obviously fun coding projects aren't the only indicator of a rock star, but they're a good way to filter out programmers that just do it for a paycheck.

don't forget that those kind of employee are demanding, they know how to have fun at working (if they do that in their spare time). Give them good food.


Code Intensity: SVN Externals are Evil; Use Piston or Braid

by greut & 1 other

the evil is SVN itself not handling changing of externals (i.e. to/from an external) in basic operations like updates and merges, which may cause a lot of manual work on your end, and break automated builds or similar.

wondering about massively usage of it.

Elegant Code » Why Agile Doesn’t Really Work

by greut

Build your business practices to embrace change just like your Agile development practices do. Embrace continuous integration of the enterprise, not just your source code.

yes, embrace it

Code reviews are fun again! ...almost.

Tape Shows Democrat Lawmaker Taking Money

by jasontromm (via)
A congressman under investigation for bribery was caught on videotape accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded, according to a court document released Sunday. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer. At one audiotaped meeting, Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., chuckles about writing in code to keep secret what the government contends was his corrupt role in getting his children a cut of a communications company's deal for work in Africa. ()() But if you believe the MSM the Democrats are pure as the driven snow. Only Republicans are supposed to be acting like this.
