Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen Bier! Not merely grapefruit flavored, it's half grapefruit juice (which, I guess, makes it a shandy). In any case, it's delicious!

Thanks, +Rick Knight!

(And thanks +Diana Heaney for the photos!)

.NET Core released 1.0 (yay!)

https://www.microsoft.com/net/core

But F# does not work (aw!)

Geez, Microsoft, why do you think I even wanted to run .NET on Linux?

Today I learned that the design patterns movement in software engineering started with the architect Christopher Alexander. Moreover, he addressed OOPSLA in 1996 and told us that we'd gotten it wrong. Nonetheless design patterns, in particular, and object-oriented programming, in general, have dominated our thinking in the twenty years since. Almost to the exclusion of everything else.

Apparently, he refined the ideas in this talk and produced a paper in 1999, but it's currently locked behind the IEEE paywall, so I haven't read it. No matter. The original talk is on YouTube...and it's fascinating!

I had the same thought about the structure-preserving transformations! I am not entirely clear what that exactly means in the field of architecture, but it certainly seems to apply.

+Jeff Miller and I have had many discussions (or perhaps one, ongoing discussion that has lasted for years) about programming versus software engineering. I'm still not sure where I stand on the issue, but I'm pretty sure I won't be working at Etsy any time soon.


When it comes to the practice of DevOps, few companies have been on the cutting edge as long as Etsy, which once famously asserted that its new engineer hires would commit code to production after the first day of work. Don’t be fooled by the crafty look-and-feel of Etsy. Last year, the e-commerce giant brought in $1.9 …

This seems nice. We have this in Perl and Ruby and I use it.

$ perl -E 'say 1_000_000'
1000000

$ ruby -e 'puts 1_000_000'
1000000

Although, maybe a million is a dumb example because we'd be better off with scientific notation, which Python already has.

$ perl -E 'say 1e6'
1000000

$ ruby -e 'puts 1e6'
1000000.0

$ python -c 'print(1e6)'
1000000.0

Overall, I didn't really enjoy the #Enfuse2016 conference, but I have to admit that the keynote address was really outstanding. Dr. Jennifer Golbeck talked about user-centric design and its effects on security. It was both entertaining and informative.

I'm still not completely sure I'll be attending YAPC::NA this year. Quite a bit of incentive to do so though ^_^

I really enjoyed watching +Mark Allen's talk comparing Erlang and Go Concurrency!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yiKUIDFc2I

You can't see the slides or the code very well in the video, but both are available online, so you can just follow along!
