A short one this week. 

Some fun technical reads on Meta's cache invalidation and Linux pipes. 


Valuing experience [Podcast] - another great discussions by two coaches

TBM 25/52: In Defense of Frameworks (and Process) - there are always frameworks and they make life easier and more predictable 

CTO Craft MiniCon - The Complete Hiring Arc (In Under 3 hours!) - Full event [YouTube] - recording of a recent hiring conference 

Engineering Levels at Honeycomb: Avoiding the Scope Trap - another good post about career paths


Cache made consistent: Meta’s cache invalidation solution - memcache is still around! But scale is just something different at Meta

Why We’re Sticking with Ruby on Rails at GitLab - also see Stockholm Syndrome 

What Would It Take for Roda to Win? - first time I hear about Roda. Good to see another Ruby framework.

Why still 80 columns? [Podcast] - I am in the 80 columns camp! Some of the history is cool.

How fast are Linux pipes anyway? - people have too much time on their hand to solve weird puzzles.


Microsoft to curb use of non-competes, drop NDAs from worker settlements, disclose salary ranges, launch civil rights audit - probably pre-empting law changes 

Our Virtual Hackathon - sadly the default now

Random Bicycles

Bicycle Thieves: Pumped Up - soon available for everybody! 

Episode #298 – Bicycle Mayors Program Founded To Counter Reducing Numbers of Dutch Cyclists [Podcast] - cycling share for kids in the Netherlands is going down. If they can't make it work, who can?

505. Did Domestic Violence Really Spike During the Pandemic? [Podcast] - it is difficult, but probably not 

Random [Comic] - all my facial expressions
