Four short links: 2 December 2011

  1. Challenges in Teaching Biology -- everything that Alison says about teaching biology is true of teaching computer science. Read, learn, evolve.
  2. First Open Source Netflix Projects Released -- Curator makes Apache Zookeeper easier to use. (via Ian Kallen)
  3. LLVM3 Released -- these are key tools for reliable development of fast systems. I think of it as JVM without the bloat, though undoubtedly that's unfair to both Java and LLVM. (via Hacker News)
  4. Scribe -- Zooniverse tool for crowdsourcing transcriptions. (via Tim Sherratt)

Four short links: 27 December 2010

  1. emscripten -- LLVM to Javascript compiler. Any code that compiles to LLVM can run in the browser (Python, Lua, C++). LLVM is open source virtual machine that Apple bought into (literally, they hired the developer).
  2. 30 Lessons Learned in Computing Over The Last 10 Years -- Backup every day at the minimum, and test restores every week. I don't think I've worked at an organisation that didn't discover at one point that they couldn't restore from their backups. Many other words of wisdom, and this one rang particularly true: all code turns into shit given enough time and hands. (via Hacker News)
  3. What Your Computer Does While You Wait -- top-to-bottom understanding of your system makes you a better programmer.
  4. How to Visualize the Competition -- elegant graphing of strategy. (via Dave Moskovitz on Twitter)
