I really hate this new trend of forcing me to scroll past 1500px of header links/images before I can start reading an article.

Lessons From Netflix: Microservices

This is an absolutely fantastic article. If you're a full-stack developer, a sysadmin, or even an IT manager, you should read this.

Teaser quote:
"... you want to think of servers like cattle, not pets. If you have a machine in production that performs a specialized function, and you know it by name, and everyone gets sad when it goes down, it's a pet."

Put that on a poster.

Take my money... ALL OF IT!!!
 
Well this just blew my mind. Check out #Rescape - a reality gaming program with a live demo that actually kicks some serious ass. This could change everything :-) #Gaming #AugmentedReality

Nothing quite like getting a major production push done just before end of business on a Friday.

Tag Heuer Smartwatch w/ Android

+TAG Heuer makes, in my opinion, some of the nicest-looking watches on the planet. Their design team is superb. If they can come up with a marriage of Android and Tag that both 1) doesn't ruin the Tag design; and 2) makes the "smartphone" part useful, then I can't wait for this!

To me, the Apple Watch design is extremely tacky and is meant to attract iLovers that will probably buy anything Apple-related anyway. But a smartwatch from a watchmaker like Tag Heuer will likely be made to attract people that like watches, and want to integrate their smartphone capabilities into it while still enjoying their watch.

If they do this right, and the watch still screams "Tag Heuer", I think I will definitely be jumping into the smartwatch segment finally.

+Guy-Robert Kernisant and what I'm saying is that that concept ain't ready for prime time... Transparent pled is half the battle, then there's touch and then there's strength. That's three halves :)

Bought a Cherry MX switch sampler, and managed to use this very solid cardboard Tablo TV box as my makeshift keyboard for testing the keys!

Just ordered a Cherry MX switch sampler and I'm excited about it. This is my life now.

Java for Kids

I need some suggestions. I want to teach my son (8) Java. I wish it didn't have to be Java (so let's not get into that), but he's really into Minecraft mods and they're written in Java, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to really get into programming. He's very interested in doing this, so I didn't want to drop the ball. Plus, Android apps are written in Java, so it could have practical use outside of just Minecraft.

What are some good resources/methods to teach kids Java? I don't mean Alice, or Scratch, or any of those non-Java things. He's already gone through a bunch of the kid-based "get your mind into it" things, so I just want to have him learn the actual language.

I know Java very well (I'm even certified), so that's not an issue. I just want to approach this in a way that will make sense to him.

Great, teach him to fish (not to phish) and I know he'll be a great fisherman. I love you.

Introduction
Coder by day... and basically a coder the rest of the day too. I'm a math & science lover, I love to learn, and I question virtually everything (because why not?). I'm a big open source guy... if you're gonna hand someone a piece of software, then give them the code :)

Wouldn't science be so much easier if God would just hand over the source?
