I’m sat on a plane that should__ be on Final Approach to Heathrow, but is actually still on stand at Glasgow International. Imagine, if you can, how my mood is...
I’m not saying anything but that looks like a photo that usually precedes a stack of documents about a person lost in Bermuda Triangle or some such
(try (slurp "/tmp/404") (catch java.io.FileNotFoundException e (println "re-throwing e") (throw e)) (catch Exception e (println "Handling e"))) this is rather disappointing 😞 I was hoping re-thrown things would continue through the chain
Splashed out on a new 2nd hand Lenovo on eBay... £600 for a computer that is £1500 new, there must be something wrong with it apart from a few scratches (or I just got very lucky). Should know by Wednesday
It does have a French keyboard, but it's the same physical layout as UK and I use my Model01 keyboard all the time. Or I could learn French again this year ;)
@alex.lynham X1 Carbon 6th generation 8gb Ram 512 SSD HD screen (1920x1080) Matt finish
is your preference for X1 Carbon due to price ? Lets say if money was no object what would laptop would you buy?
Its not about price, its about build quality, robustness, it has the best low profile keyboard and I like the asthetics and design. If money was no object I would just buy several Lenovo's 🙂 I'd get the new X1 Carbon with 4 cores (8 threads) along with the X1 Extreme with 6 cores (12 threads) and mainly out of curiosity, I would get the Lenovo P1 with 6 core Xeon processor. Actually, I would like the X1 Extreme in the X1 carbon form factor ideally (so if money was no object, I'd pay Lenovo to make me one 🙂
Oh, and ThinkPads have always run Linux perfectly (or perfectly enough that I havent ever noticed any issues)
That's a plus mark on Lenovo. I thought the Dell XPS 13 might have been a contender if money was not a criteria. Mainly due to the form factor. I have never used a Lenovo before but I am very curious now
Now that Dell started to put the webcam back where it should be, then its a great laptop. Its amazing that they support Linux so well and ship their laptops with Ubuntu (the only bad thing about Lenovo, athough you only pay for windows if you get the pro version). If you are not fussy about your keyboards, then Dell XPS is a good choice, but for me Lenovo wins every time.
in many ways it’s nicer than the new macbook, the only thing that’s not as good is it’s super expensivo to get the RAM and an equivalent screen
I have the 2600x1440 and I run all my apps full screen, so resolution is just fine. The second hand laptop I just got has a 1920x1080 display. I will be using this for YouTube broadcasts and demos, so it’s the perfect screen resolution. I dont have a 4K TV yet, so I guess I haven’t acquired a taste for that. I have avoided the 4K screens because they are glossy and therefore very reflective. If there were a Matt finish to a 4K laptop screen, I might consider it, especially if it was an OLED display. The 4K screens do seem to be significantly more expensive and use a little more battery (because you have to turn up brightness to diminish the reflections). I have a curved ultra wide monitor at home which is more than enough for my needs. Still waiting for my matrix adaptor, then I won’t need a screen :)
Should keep me going until the 7th Generation X1 Carbon machines are out (July/August 2019). Although I tend not to buy until the price has dropped, so would be around Jan 2020.
I think if I was going to go for one of the new ones it’d have to be beefy beyond belief to be future proof (ish)
Guys, if you were to have a data import/transformation script, and a website, both in the same repo, both written in Clojure, how would you structure it?
maybe have the scripts in a separate folder called transformations or migrations. Then just make sure they arn’t bundled with the website? imo it depends on how they are used
I don’t know yet, it’s my first project in Clojure, I have an xml file with stuff (wiki dump) out of which I need to extract the useful data and dump into somewhere, that will later be presented through the website
or just have the file in the root project dir, i dont think its gonna be a big difference if its just an example
the same way you can run “build” or “test” project, I’d have a separate “build-data” or whatnot. I’m guessing that’ll need lein config somehow?
also I want to use it as a demo of “this is how you would write a very simple pipeline”
typically for a data transformation if it’s input to the web app I would put it in a
if the importer is its own ETL service then I’d make it a separate project in a separate repo, even if it’s only 50 lines and a couple of namespaces
As a developer of edge, I can honestly say edge is the best experience I've had with getting started 🙂
If you do check it out, any notes on what you think, what you didn't like, etc. are really valuable.
@alex.lynham input for the web app (grab some data from wiki, transform/extract some bits, format, web app uses them in a read-only way). I’m not intending to take it all the way to a final release, just to see how long it takes me to go from “a problem” to “a prototype of a solution”.
@U82DUDVMH I tend to structure most of my extraction tasks by creating a
resources folder and sticking stuff under that. Especially if this project is supposed to be
one-off. Then write code under
src to do the job :)…
The edge example looks quite weighty? Is there a page that describes what each folder is for?
@U82DUDVMH I'd say that they're similar except that edge is more of an assembly of existing things (e.g. integrant, aero, etc.) and duct seems to have it's own config system, etc.
@U0JUM502E which edge example do you mean, sorry? There's a lack of documentation on the internals though, and that's an area of active thought for me. Edge could be a bunch of libraries that you don't touch, but instead it's a repo where you can go modify the internals if they're not flexible enough for you. I'm still figuring out the process for when something leaves the edge repo.
@U0JUM502E oh, you're probably referring to main, yeah, I really need to sort that out. Don't look at main, it's deprecated 🙂 tutorial.vent is probably a better place to look.
Good to see the vent folder has some decent docs :)… Not sure why you decided to use a file as a db?
@U82DUDVMH long-term, Edge is intended to become JUXT's super-power. I want to add edge-specific development tools, and also open source our productionizing code in a slightly more general way from our production releases. e.g. I'm formulating an "edge.aws" which will do things like integrate logging with cloudwatch automatically.
@U0JUM502E it was for teaching purposes, otherwise I have to spend time teaching people how to run postgres 🙂
