good slides for EMR tuning from re:Invent 2014
LOL. grepping commit logs for /bug|fix/ does the job, apparently:
In the literature, Rahman et al. found that a very cheap algorithm actually performs almost as well as some very expensive bug-prediction algorithms. They found that simply ranking files by the number of times they’ve been changed with a bug-fixing commit (i.e. a commit which fixes a bug) will find the hot spots in a code base. Simple! This matches our intuition: if a file keeps requiring bug-fixes, it must be a hot spot because developers are clearly struggling with it.
Google reinvented ClearCase
Amazing it took so long
The US wields secretive and indiscriminate powers to collect data, he said, and had never offered Brussels any commitments to guarantee EU privacy standards for its citizens’ data. On the contrary, said [Max Schrems’ counsel] Mr Hoffmann, “Safe Harbour” provisions could be overruled by US domestic law at any time. Thus he asked the court for a full judicial review of the “illegal” Safe Harbour principles which, he said, violated the essence of privacy and left EU citizens “effectively stripped of any protection”. [Irish] DPC counsel Paul Anthony McDermott SC suggested that Mr Schrems had not been harmed in any way by the status quo. “This is not surprising, given that the NSA isn’t currently interested in the essays of law students in Austria,” he said. Mr Travers for Mr Schrems disagreed, saying “the breach of the right to privacy is itself the harm”.
A lawyer for the European Commission told an EU judge on Tuesday (24 March) he should close his Facebook page if he wants to stop the US snooping on him, in what amounts to an admission that Safe Harbour, an EU-US data protection pact, doesn’t work.
How to avoid the shitty behaviour of ActiveRecord wrt migration safety, particularly around removing/renaming columns. ugh, ActiveRecord
Working in a similar fashion – drawing small portions each day – it took Mr. Nomura about 2 months to complete his new maze. And in our humble opinion, we think it’s actually just as beautiful, if not more. It’s not quite as dense and the crisper lines make it easier to perceive the interesting patterns that the maze forms. It’s stunning in graphic quality but it’s also a functioning solvable maze, just like its predecessor. Say hello to Papa’s Maze 2.0. It’s available as a print for $30.
The REST Proxy is an open source HTTP-based proxy for your Kafka cluster. The API supports many interactions with your cluster, including producing and consuming messages and accessing cluster metadata such as the set of topics and mapping of partitions to brokers. Just as with Kafka, it can work with arbitrary binary data, but also includes first-class support for Avro and integrates well with Confluent’s Schema Registry. And it is scalable, designed to be deployed in clusters and work with a variety of load balancing solutions. We built the REST Proxy first and foremost to meet the growing demands of many organizations that want to use Kafka, but also want more freedom to select languages beyond those for which stable native clients exist today. However, it also includes functionality beyond traditional clients, making it useful for building tools for managing your Kafka cluster. See the documentation for a more detailed description of the included features.
