Compiler Construction: The Art of Niklaus Wirth
Niklaus Wirth is not only a master of language design but also a pioneer of
compiler construction. For four decades he has refined his techniques for
building simple, efficient and reliable compilers. This paper tries to collect
some general principles behind his work. It is not a paper about new
compilation techniques but a reflection about Wirth's way to write compilers.

Bringing Arbitrary Compute to Authoritative Data - ACM Queue
Mark Cavage and David Pacheco, on the architecture of Joyent's "Manta" general-purpose distributed storage system, supporting arbitrary computation on data at rest.
In particular:
- storage is "object": no partial updates, objects are immutable.
- interface is Unix-like: stdin/stdout + pipes
- "Local" computing: when given a job to run, the job is run on the node that contains the object instead of copying it across the network.

There's Just No Getting around It: You're Building a Distributed System - ACM Queue
Mark Cavage, illustrating it with a simple "image resizing" service.
"In reality, building a distributed system requires a methodical approach to requirements along the boundaries of failure domains, latency, throughput, durability, consistency, and desired SLAs for the business application at all aspects of the application."

PR: note that splitting up identity management and caching makes it look like a 9P system: but he counters with noting that filesystems choose the C in CAP, and therefore do not scale past a single node very well.

Safely Composable Type-Specific Language
We introduce type-specific languages (TSLs): logic associated with a type that
determines how the bodies of generic literals, able to contain arbitrary syntax,
are parsed and elaborated, hygienically.
