Alexander Grothendieck, one of the greatest mathematicians of all the times, has died.
He retired to private life long ago, but his contributions have tremendously advanced our understanding of mathematics. He will never be forgotten.

"next branch", a rarely used git/mercurial workflow.
I'll describe the so-called “next branch” workflow, used for the development of the Git project and for the Linux kernel, and illustrate how it systematically leads to criss-cross merges. A criss-cross merge happens when the greatest common ancestor of the nodes to be merged is not unique.

facebook's Christian Legnitto: Phabricator's killer feature is you can post GIFs in code reviews. If you need to ask a colleague to write more tests, you don't want to sound like his mom.
