Notes for week 7 of 2022
Work continues on future system design, a lot of time was spent in Miro this week. Otherwise, I spent most of the week preparing for a major family event. It went well and without drama. Side-effects included me visiting a barber after a year or two.
- Schemathesis: Property-based testing for API schemas came through my neetwork as a project to watch. At an appropriate time: I spent quite a bit of time thinking about how to integrate QE in a continuous delivery model and this is exactly the type of tests I can see them writing
- Eisvogel template is nice and given I already use pandoc, you may see it around
- Quite a bit of companies seem to start model their authn/z after Zanzibar
- JSON Lines for stream processing of JSON
- Medieval Fantasy City Generator looks useful for some of my RPGs
- I’ve walked 8 km. I’ve been active for 2.5 hours during 4 activities. This week’s max speed was 14.0 km/h and I conquered 57 elevation meters.
Finally a public launch! Although this has been delivered for select customers for a while, now we’re going GA: integrations with Amplitude and Mixpanel.
This is thanks to my team; I’ve been only involved as someone who pokes into proposals. It’s good to see projects going from an inception to a release in a few weeks though; it’s a good litmus paper of organizational health.
I did an internal talk on SCS. I really like them compared to “microservices”. In my mind, they started clicking even more when done together with domain model activities (since they identify well the areas that should be a single service/system) and event storming that identifies well the domain events that should flow between the systems through log replication (Kafka or Kinesis).
Recommended Readings From This Week
- NFTs aren’t as stupid as you think: Another good crypto explanation
- That Wild Ask A Manager Story: Yes!
- Czech research (in Czech) on how our education system doesn’t help the poor: well done and depressing
