https://m.signalvnoise.com/only-15-of-the-basecamp-operations-budget-is-spent-on-ruby/ — unpopular opinion (?) — my current SaaS work would benefit greatly if it had started out as a RoR application 7 years ago. Instead, the architect chose the (then shiny) Node.js/Mongo stack and had to implement a ton of things from scratch, plus the data and API story is a complete mess.
is somewhere in the middle right... some things will have to be rewritten, maybe not as much as in node.js (at the same time node.js probably has evolved for the better in all these years, as for all things backend)
probably an analog decision today would be choosing Rust or (to a lesser degree) Golang for a webapp
Hm, the marketing for Node and Mongo at the time (IIRC) was async IO and web-scale, quickly to production. Which was the two things the other beginner-friendly frameworks of the time (Rails/Django) lacked.
Unfortunately Node turned out to be pretty bad (IMO) to composing libraries together. Which Clojure turns out to be pretty good at, and Rails avoids the whole situation by giving you pretty much everything out of the box...
> Unfortunately Node turned out to be pretty bad (IMO) to composing libraries together. why?
I think it’s the lack of any meaningful abstractions in JS, plus a happy-go-lucky approach in the immature ecosystem that lead to a ton of breakage.
However, now that ship has sailed, and I think Clojure has the nimbleness required to help gradually rewrite our stack to something sane.
I worked for a company that started with Java, then a new CTO came in, decided everything had to be nodejs, then he didn't last long and the company rewrote everything into Clojure.
we had a project rewrite to node + mongo because "performance" in the year of our lord 2018
Maybe changing languages is the same strategy as reorganization of a company after a new manager arrives: create confusion so nothing is comparable to before 😁😁✌️
Hey 🙂 This might be useful for all developers, especially working from home or freelancers; I wrote about healthy habits and my current accountability setup at http://www.3jane.co.uk/posts/solo-developer-habits/ (I'm currently on a break between jobs and doing my best not to fall into "where did the time go?" by the time I start at the new place)
Wow, I didn't even know there were apps to "organize" your personal relations... TIL.
It's an extension of an address book: write down what your nephew's hobbies are, what football players he likes. Then come Christmas time, bang, you know what to buy as a gift.
(ie. it's important to schedule regular time with important people in your life because there's not much left of it, and it can slip away)
Enjoyed the blog post. I hope you have a good time between jobs. You have the new job already sorted out?
second half of last year was prep/interviewing, I'm now somewhat squashed after that and decompressing by writing a compiler
job will be dev tooling (testing harness afaik) for Erlang devs, also in Erlang, looking forward to it
https://github.com/ir-regular/coding-retreat-2020 <- tracking it here, but I really don't think I'll be able to do everything I'd like to/found resources for 🙂 Still, building something from the ground up is a good way to understand how it works, and then I can look at LLVM and suchlike
interesting, thanks for the Modern C reference, might be something I want to read some day
Would recommend - it's free, readable and comprehensive (at least that's how it looks to me). The only caveat is that he doesn't cover almost anything about how to build, test, debug, etc so you have to figure the project setup on your own.
I seem to remember I have a couple of patches against data.csv which were never merged. One was for making it work with cljs.
I use data.csv every week for something or other. Never used clojure-csv.
