We tend to think of working hard as a good thing. We value a strong work ethic and determination is the face of adversity. But if you are working harder than you should to get the same results, then it's not a virtue, it's a waste of time and energy. If it's your business systems that are working harder than they should, it's a waste of your IT budget.
If I were to list projects as small, medium, and large or small to enterprise, what methodologies work across them? My thoughts are Agile works well, but eventually you'll hit a wall of complexity, which will make you wonder why you didn't see it many, many iterations ago. I don't know anyone at NASA or Space-X or DoD so I don't know what software methodology they use? Given your experience can you shed some light on it?
... is not Damien Katz.
The blog post Damien Katz wrote earlier today, doesn't mean much or anything for theproject (or memcache project for that matter). If anything it's a public note that Damien Katz acknowledged that he moved (on) from CouchDB to .
Short story, long
I'm not a contributor to CouchDB by means of code, (but) I blog a lot, I maintain the wrote a book and have an opinion on many things …port,
quickie - tests you can embed in your ruby classes. I rather like the idea of not having separate test files.
The - According to original author Damien Katz, it's the new of CouchDB , not the existing project.
code.nasa.gov - Early alpha, serious open source code from the space agency.
…Scott: I want to be sensitive to the time. Are there any closing thoughts from your side?
Damien: We've just gone to version 0.11, which is our release candidate for 1.0. We've already been very stable as a database engine, and right now what we're actually trying to stabilize on is our program interface, and we're about ready to go.
Scott: Thanks for taking the time to talk today.
Damien: Thank you.
4) DHH : Talked about how RailsConf moved from 30 people meeting after RubyConf to a huge conference. He talked about how Ruby isn't on the fringe anymore. This is the "great surplus" speech, and it will end at some point. The mainstream will copy Rails, something new will …
My post The Unreasonable Effectiveness of C generated a ton discussion on Reddit and Hacker News , nearly 1200 comments combined as people got in to all sorts of heated arguments. I also got a bunch of private correspondence about it.
So I'm going to answer some of the most common questions, feedback and misunderstandings it's gotten.
Is C the best language for everything?
no! Higher level languages, like and , are extremely …
For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C.
I get mail.
I read about you from a book on erlang.
Your couchdb application is really a rave.
please can you help me out ,i've got questions only a working programmer can answer.
i'm shooting now:
i've been programming in java for over 3 years
i know all about the syntax and so on but recently i ran a code counter on my apps and
the code sizes were dismal. 2-3k
commercial popular apps have code sizes in the 100 of thousands.
This is our premier Couchbase event. We're going ham.
