Types in the Go Programming Language
Originally published on Medium - See writeup . One aspect of the Go language that may cause newcomers to scratch their heads in wonder is the type system. Go types are simple and straightforward. However, a grounded understanding of the fundametal character...

Go for Type Simplicity in Go
I have been writing code in Go (golang) full time for almost two years now (wow, time flies). Before Go, I spent my career writing Java code. So needless to say, I still carry a bit of the OO baggage. My Go code (and the code of many others in the commu...

Technology has always displaced jobs. While AI is making life better for billions, it also poses a growing challenge to labor. This nicely done PBS segment featuring Stanford's Jerry Kaplan shows the beginnings of many robots automating away different jobs. Many people think a robot could never do 100% of their job, and that this makes them safe; but this isn't the point. Even if a robot only does 10% of someone's job, it could create downward pressure on wages and/or put some people out of work. I think scalable forms of education such as MOOCs are our best answer to this, but we still have a long road ahead. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/labor-saving-robots-spell-doom-american-workers/
The onslaught of automation that's replacing human workers -- from golf caddies to bank tellers -- may be putting us on a path to humanitarian crisis, says Jerry Kaplan, author of "Humans Need Not Apply." As technology grows and jobs become obsolete, income inequality and poverty could follow for millions of Americans. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports.

Groupon (yes that groupon) wants to use the "GNOME" name for one of its products. 
"GNOME" has been a familiar name in software for the past 17 years, and a registered trademark since 2006. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop ...

Is AOS + HPCA doable ? Any Feedback on SAaD?

After reviewing the 8 projects I will be responsible for between AOS and HPCA, I am having second thoughts.  I am thinking of switching AOS for Software Arc and Design.  But I cant access a preview vid for SAAD.  Any suggestion welcome.  

Thanks.

UPI: Human DNA features genes from plants, microorganisms. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwqYT77CA
A new study suggests natural transgenics, or horizontal gene transfer, is quite common among larger species like humans.

With the planned improvements to the Go garbage collector, with hard latency and time budgets, the language will be one of the best languages for soft-realtime work (e.g. low latency servers.) You're guaranteed that your application code runs for 40ms out of every 50ms. In addition Go offers fantastic escape analysis and structs for reducing allocations. Details:
