Drop Books
The vast majority of books I purchase are for my own enjoyment, but not all of them. There are a few books that I buy over and over, and drop on the desks of friends and colleagues. These books, all technical, are books that I think most programmers will be...

My Answers for Microservices Awkward Questions
Earlier this year, Ade published Awkward questions for those boarding the microservices bandwagon . I think the list is pretty solid, and (with a small push from Ade) I decided to write concise details on my experience. I think it's reasonable to start with...

Experience Report: Weak Code Ownership
In 2006 Martin Fowler wrote about Code Ownership . It's a quick read, I'd recommend checking it out if you've never seen it. At the time I was working at ThoughtWorks; I remember thinking "Clearly Strong makes no sense and I have no idea what scenario would...

LTR Org Chart
Most traditional organizations have an Org Chart that looks similar to the following: Org Charts displayed in this way emphasize the chain of command. A quick look at a node in this Org Chart will let you know who someone reports to and who reports to them....

Slides and video recording (Spanish) for my "Elegant?? Unit Testing" talk from #freakend15 are now available.

Big thanks to +Jay Fields for writing #wewut

#androiddev #unittesting
In this session we will learn the basics of Unit Testing and its importance. We will define what a Unit Test is, what type of Unit Tests there are and then talk about Test Doubles. We will then focus on how to write new tests and improve existing ones by reviewing some Android Github projects. Video (Spanish): https://upclose.me/Aracem/6121

Preview Arbitrary HTML
I'm a big fan of https://gist.github.com/ for sharing code. It's fantastic for quickly putting something online to talk over with someone else. I've often found myself wishing for something that allowed me to share rendered HTML in the same way. For example...

1. It is, also.
2. Why can't it be both? All of mine are.
3. A web UI moves the files, cron starts and stops
4. A jar
5. A little of both
6. Yes
7. Yes
8. A can use team B's if they want to keep up with the API or B can run their own copy of the service if they want to stick with a specific API
9. Consumer's responsibility
10. Conventions.
11. Team discussion when deviating from established conventions
12. Outside of code, they're not. Within code, the conventions span the existing services, so there's plenty of reference code.
13. Code review for all code submitted by team members that have been on the team less than 6 months
14. Discussion and an open mind
15. Yes
16. Custom monitoring code that constantly evolves. Monitoring code is as valuable (if not more) than the business logic, and is treated as such.
17. Logging. More aggressive approaches were originally implemented, and never used. I'm still somewhat surprised by that.
18. A running process that provides value and introduces no more risk than the team is comfortable with.
19. A running process that interacts via some type of socket and processes data in some interesting way.

This approach likely does not scale.

Why do you think Microservices do not scale? I believe its build to scale horizontally because of its distributive in nature (irrespective of deployment difficulties and manageability)? Any specific note on that?

meh, nice outdoor seating, but the food was over priced and the service was average. Wouldn't return.

Awesome pizza, but the service is terrible. I ordered a pizza for delivery, and nothing came for over an hour. I called to see what was up and they said they didn't have my correct phone number or credit card, and if I wanted a pizza it would be another hour before it got there. I'll never order from them again.

I have yet to find a Sandoval restaurant I didn't love. Maya blends traditional mexican cuisine with upscale dining in a way that everyone seems to love. I recently brought a party of 8 there and everyone was talking about how wonderful the food was. Maya has become my posh mexican "go to" in the city.

I had high hopes for this "mentioned on Gossip Girl" spot. The decor and service lived up to the hype, but the food was standard. I liked everything about my meal, but I can say that for a hundred restaurants around town. I couldn't think of a compelling reason for a return trip.

Both visits to Munich have included a trip to Vue. I maintain the opinion that the view isn't that Impressive, but the food and service are almost unmatched. Vue is definitely worth your time and money.

This famous spot lived up to the hype. The food was the best I had in Rome. The decor is bit dated and the service is very helpful (but not entirely English friendly), and I still go back at least twice on each trip to Rome. The meatballs alone make you consider leaving your life behind and looking for work in Rome.

I loved Lincoln so much I'm afraid to give a good review. I like the fact that I'm still able to get reservations. Lincoln has the best service of any restaurant I've visited in Manhattan. You can tell that the staff want everything to be perfect. The food was fantastic and the decor is breathtaking. I return to Lincoln every chance I get.
