談五月天演唱會搶票 - 如何設計更好的系統
談五月天演唱會搶票 想要聽學長五月天的演唱會卻這麼難,開放的那一刻系統一打開就當掉,等到看到畫面的時候票也賣完了、拓元票務系統過不久便宣布他們系統掛了擇日再賣。想想發現這件事情其實跟我這學期在CMU修的每一堂課都有關連: Information Security課講的Authentication, Fraud Prevention:抵制黃牛的記名機制 Packet Switch課講的Scheduling, Fair Queueing, Routing:公平性 Scalable System講的load bal...

Pokemon Go 觀察之二三事
相較於一般網路上大家談論的事情,對於這次Pokemon Go的風潮我有以下幾點觀察。 不能戴著鴨舌帽在路上玩 因為這樣看起來實在太專業了,會造成行人的壓力。 成為道館長 趁其他隊伍把道館打下來之後,有短暫時間該道館會是白色的、不屬於任何隊伍,利用這段時間把自己最愛的神奇寶貝放上去,照張相之後跟朋友分享。 其實不用出門呀 Pokemon Go既然是App,讀取的GPS資料來自於手機系統,於是可以讓系統給予不同的GPS位置達到移動的效果,不用真的出門也可以去很多地方。

當兵這一年,我做了什麼
Heron Yang 筆 眼看就快要退伍了,是時候記錄當兵這一年。 當兵,讓我別無選擇地,必須空下沒就學或工作自由的一年,但也幸運地空出不少屬於自己的時間。在休息與自我實現之間,我選擇持續走在我的道路上:Build Something People Want。於是,我利用這段時間,先是申請美國碩士,再是閱讀數十本以往沒機會細讀的書、學習各種應用程式開發,還有實作數個作品。 申請美國碩士 前四個月色調大多是關於碩士申請,過程包含考試、學校選擇、文件準備與送交申請等等,雖說事情很繁瑣、要顧慮的細節多;然而,平心靜...

被台大拒絕了三次,於是我去了Stanford和CMU
給被標題吸引進來的你, 這是一個關於我自己在升學路上的故事,曾經我有情緒也有撞牆期,而也許很多地方需要被討論與批評;但不論如何,現在,讓我平靜地述說這段歷程:我是怎麼被台大拒絕了三次,而又是怎樣讓我看見不同的天空。 起點 高中社團,師大附中的 工業技術研究社 ,是我開始接觸寫程式的起點。高一的第一個學期,週五的社團課學長教我們在Linux上面寫C語言,第一次教if/else、第二次則用while/for排列一些圖案,而記得當時為了把輾轉相除法寫好,留到很晚肚子很餓,但從那時候開始我知道自己對於寫程式有很大的興...

The Shallow
Preface The Net seizes our attention only to scatter it. “How do users read on the web?” he asked then. His succinct answer: “They don’t.” The book, “The Shallow”, raises a common problem we all suffer nowadays: “we lost our deep reading ability.” The autho...
