Daily Wrap Up – March 3, 2023 (#040)

Did you learn anything new this week? Tell me about it. I read a few good blog posts and articles today that taught me new SQL tricks, how to be a carbon-aware developer, and how AI might help us improve business processes.

[blog] Architecture Frameworks: Meaningful or Ridiculous? I’ve learned that you can’t be too obsessed with frameworks, or, too dismissive. They play a role if you use them correctly.

[blog] Calm down about Service Weaver. The new framework we open sourced this week has riled some folks up! I guess that’s good. We should embrace the creativity and argue about the impact.

[blog] 10 SQL Tricks That I Like. It’s hard to avoid SQL queries, whether you’re a developer, DBA, or report creator. I learned a few things from this post.

[blog] Developer research deep dive: Let’s build faster together. From yours truly. We sponsored a research project that showed some positive productivity and speed results for Google Cloud services compared to other cloud providers.

[article] How AI Is Helping Companies Redesign Processes. Can AI succeed where other process reengineering efforts failed in the past? Maybe so.

[article] Can WebAssembly Solve Serverless’s Problems? No? A different packaging format isn’t what holds back serverless computing. Container-based environments like Cloud Run have already solved the portability challenge. Serverless “lock-in” is to the managed services the compute integrates with. It’s also the value. That’s not portable!

[blog] How Cloudflare runs Prometheus at scale. Find some good lessons learned from a company using a lot of this popular open source monitoring system.

[blog] A developer’s guide to understanding carbon. Are your developers really thinking about this? Be honest. Even if not, can we make it easier to do the right things? This post offers some guidance.

[article] How to Become More Adaptable in Challenging Situations. I like a leaders with a little fire in their belly, but I value “calm under pressure” much more. Ideally both?
