Progressive Apps: Escaping Tabs Without Losing Our Soul – Infrequently Noted
"These apps aren’t packaged and deployed through stores, they’re just websites that took all the right vitamins. They keep the web’s ask-when-you-need-it permission model and add in new capabilities like being top-level in your task switcher, on your home screen, and in your notification tray. Users don’t have to make a heavyweight choice up-front and don’t implicitly sign up for something dangerous just by clicking on a link. Sites that want to send you notifications or be on your home screen have to earn that right over time as you use them more and more. They progressively become “apps”."

Using logs to build a solid data infrastructure (or: why dual writes are a bad idea)
How does your database store data on disk reliably? It uses a log.
How does one database replica synchronise with another replica? It uses a log. How does a distributed algorithm like Raft achieve consensus? It uses a log. How does activity data get recorded in a system like Apache Kafka? It uses a log. How will the data infrastructure of your application remain robust at scale? Guess what…
