Polymath Engineer Weekly #8
Time to read and reflect.
Hello again. Look what we have here:
Links of the week
Deployment Frequency is one of the most important indicators in DORA metrics. When it is easy to ship code to production, you are fast at recovery from bugs and reduce risk by working on small batches.
This video is mind blowing. Next time you break production with your nasty bugs, blame it on the physics. 💩
“While entrepreneurs and venture-capital founders tell themselves that "capital is a strategy," bubble finance is no substitute for a business plan that can achieve positive cash flow.“
This is a very interesting approach to decouple compute from storage in Postgres. I’ll try this when I have the time.
Envoy is one of the most influential softwares from recent years IMO. Making it easier to proxy ingress traffic will make the Kubernetes ecosystem better.
“How does a smartphone work? Most people have no idea; they are insanely complicated devices. However, you can break them down into eight submodules, each of which is merely complex. What makes them work is that each of these components can be made small, at massive economies of scale, and are tightly integrated, allowing easy assembly.“
Tired of seeing your beloved shows being canceled? this is a good explanation of what is happening.
Book of the week
The original paper from Turing is a really tough read. If you are interested in understanding more about computability, this book makes it a lot easier to follow.
Hope you enjoyed the links. Have a nice week ;)
