Some comments on this great video on: http://bert-hubert.blogspot.nl/2014/04/seen-that-sketch-expert-well-i-blame.html - in short, we can blame the expert too.

The C++/Programming books I recommend
People often ask me which C++ and programming books I recommend, perhaps because PowerDNS has a reputation for being "readable C++".  This post is intended as my answer to this question, and also contains some broader notes on programming. If you have any a...

In praise of PPM/PNM: printf-style graphical (debugging) output
When programming, it is often convenient to emit debugging output, and it is very easy to do so in textual format using printf, syslog, console.log and their friends. And once emitted, there are ample tools to analyse our textual output, or even to graph it...

Mapping DNA nucleotides to numbers... the cool way!
So, there are four DNA 'characters', or nucleotides, or bases: A, C, G and T.  Says the Wikipedia : '"A" stands for Adenine and pairs with the "T", which stands for Thymine. The "C" stands for Cytosine and pairs with the "G", Guanine'. Since there are only ...

Or differently phrased: bit 2 is the strand type, bit 3 is the component id. ;)

Help, my sin() is slow, and my FPU is inaccurate!
Recently, I started writing code to do a simulation of biological system, and I got stuck after 20 lines. My test code tried to go through a million time steps doing basically nothing, and it was taking a minute to do it. However, if I reduced this to only ...

You can either love or loathe those moments when the abstraction you weren't even consciously aware you were relying on breaks down, "close enough" flies out the window, and you're left in the smoking rubble wondering "what the hell just happened?" but it's very hard to remain indifferent..

Seen that sketch, "The Expert"? Well, I blame the expert too.
So this post has been brewing for years now, but this short movie triggered me to finally write it up: (Written & Directed by Lauris Beinerts , based on a short story "The Meeting" by Alexey Berezi). It has been widely shared among the computing community, ...

Because only from the "experts", one can expect that they will on-the-fly replace architects and project coordinators that have been forgotten to include in the project. All while keeping their precious incident handling, on-call and regular maintenance tasks.

How many hours for multithreading the server? Or: dealing with overly detailed project planning
Many developers, me included, dread that moment. Someone sits down with you and wants to know how many "hours" each step of the project will take.  And of course the thing is, if you are doing something that has been done many times before, you might be abl...

Hello, and welcome to the wonderful world of DNA sequencing!
I tremendously enjoy the television program “ How it’s made ”. And even though it is unlikely I’ll ever fabricate a baseball bat, at least I’ve learned how it’s done. This post is intended to similarly transfer that sense of wonder, but not about sports equ...

Getting the correct 'git hash' in your binaries w/o needless recompiling or linking
When processing bug reports, or when people doubt the output of your tools, it is tremendously helpful to know the provenance of the binaries. One way of doing this is to embed the git hash in your code. A useful hash can be generated using: $ git describe ...

The Business Moped Theory of New Product Rejection
So, you or your company invented something radical & new: congratulations! This has happened to me twice, once with PowerDNS and once with Fox-IT. Both times my products had unique features, and both struggled to gain market ...
