Hey, it's HighScalability time:
If you like this sort of Stuff then please support me on Patreon.
- 40 TFLOPS: on Lambda; 7: new habitable planets with good beer; dozens: balloons needed in Loon network; 500 TB/sec: rate at which DNA is copied in human body; 1/2: web is encrypted; 34: regions in Azure; $8k: cost of Tesla self-driving hardware; 99.95%: DMCA takedowns are bot BS; 300 nanometers: new microscope; 7%: AMP traffic to publishers;
- Quotable Quotes:
- @jasonlk: Elon Musk: Self-Driving Car Revolution Will Leave 15% of World Population Without Jobs
- Near death Archimedes: Stand away, fellow, from my diagram!
- rumpelstilskin21: Angular and React make for popular headlines on reddit but unless you are working for a major, large web site where such things might be deemed useful by management (and no one else) then quit trying to get educated by the amateurs on reddit.
- StorageMojo: There is a new paradigm about to hit the industry, which will eviscerate large portions of the current storage ecosystem. Like other major shifts, it is powered by a class of users who are poorly served by existing products and technologies. But if our digital civilization is to survive and prosper, it has to happen. And it will, like it or not.
- ThatMightBePaul: Worst case scenario: you try Go, don't like it, and you head back to Node more confident that it fits you better. That's still a pretty positive outcome, imo. So, invest the time in Go, and then see which feels right :)
- Russ: it is the job of the application to properly figure out the network’s limits and try to live within them.
- World's Second-Best Go Player: After humanity spent thousands of years improving our tactics, computers tell us that humans are completely wrong. I would go as far as to say not a single human has touched the edge of the truth of Go.
- @mjpt777: After fixing a few more false sharing issues we shaved another ~350ns of Aeron's RTT between machines.
- @thomasfuchs: 1997: Let’s make a website! *fires up vi* 2007: Let’s make a website! *downloads jQuery* *fires up vi* 2017: Let’s make a website! [very long list of tech]
- Basho: Do not follow the ancient masters, seek what they sought.
hellofunk: If many years ago, someone told me that a humongous company named Alphabet was thinking about deploying balloons all over the world, I'd have told you a thing or two about having a charming imagination.
- Russ: Sure, the Internet is broken. But anything we invent will, ultimately, be broken in some way or another. Sure the IETF is broken, and so is open source, and so is… whatever we might invent next. We don’t need a new Internet, we need a little less ego, a lot less mud slinging, and a lot more communication.
- @sAbakumoff: Analyzed the sentiment of 80000 Github Commit Comments, it seems that Ruby devs tend to be pretty positive, but c++ are angriest ones!
- Michael Sawyer: The YouTubers' common enemy is YouTube
- @jannis_r: "Good size for a microservice: if it fits into one engineers head" @adrianco #AWSTechBreakfast
- packagecloud: setting [TZ] environment variable can save thousands (or in some cases, tens of thousands) of unnecessary system calls that can be generated by glibc over small periods of time.
- @istanboolean: "Hardware has stopped getting faster. Software has not stopped getting slower." @rob_pike
- Greg Meddles: You're out of memory on some particular Amazon instance, so you bump up to the next biggest in size. That is always the naive solution. Whatever you're doing, you'll usually end up doing more of it. Eventually, you'll end up throwing good money after bad.
- @viktorklang: Replace the use of sequential, concurrent, and parallel with dependent, coordinated, and independent? Thoughts?
- Coast Guard Vice Adm. Marshall Lytle: Cyberwarfare is like a soccer game with all the fans on the field with you and no one is wearing uniforms
- CockroachDB: If you’re serious about building a company around open source software, you must walk a narrow path: introduce paid features too soon, and risk curtailing adoption. Introduce paid features too late, and risk encouraging economic free riders. Stray too far in either direction, and your efforts will ultimately continue only as unpaid open source contribution
- Veratyr: Deployment [of k8s] is just so much harder than it should be. Fundamentally (I discovered far later on in the process), Kubernetes is comprised of roughly the following services: kube-apiserver, kubelet, kube-proxy, kube-scheduler, kube-controller-manager. The other dependencies are: A CA infrastructure for certificate based authentication, etcd, a container runtime (rkt or Docker) and CNI.
- @jbeda: I want to go on record: the amount of yaml required to do anything in k8s is a tragedy. Something we need to solve.
- What do you get for $5? Quite a lot. $5 Showdown: Linode vs. DigitalOcean vs. Amazon Lightsail vs. Vultr: Linode’s new plan is not only offering the consistently better performance...Linode is still a bit behind the curve when it comes to things like block storage volumes, default SSH keys and yeah, their UI.
- Does insurance cover this? The first SHA1 collision.
