[JOB] Ruby/Postgres Developer in Melbourne, 4 Month Contract
For metrics and reporting, we have an internal data warehouse that
sits behind a JSON API. It works brilliantly, but with the volume of
data we have these days it's showing it's age. The core events table
is up to 60 million rows and growing at ~5 million rows per month.

Some API calls are slowing down, some need new filtering options, and
we need to expose some new aggregate data. We're also wondering, what
happens when we hit 150 million events? 200 million?

Abstractivate: Hyperproductive development
Let's talk about why some developers, in some situations, are ten times more productive than others.

When do we get that exhilarating feeling of hyperproductivity, when new features flow out of our fingertips? It happens when we know our tools like the back of our hands, and more crucially, when we know the systems we are changing. Know them intimately, like I know the contents of my backpack, when I packed it and I tuned the items in each pouch over years of travel. Know the contents of every module, both what they are and what we'd like them to be if we ever finish that refactoring

The Push Train
A challenging proposal for a dev workflow that enables shipping many times per day. I like the end goal, but the proposed changes go against the scar tissue I've built up over the years.

It's not just that. The cloud is far, far more expensive than bare metal, and th... | Hacker News
So there's 3 things you can use the cloud for:

1) your company is totally fucked for IT management, and the cloud beats local because of incompetence (this is very common). And you're unwilling or unable to fix this. Or "your company doesn't focus on IT and never will" in MBA speak.

2) wildly swinging resource loads, where the peak capacity is only needed for 1-5% of time at most.

3) you expect to have vastly increasing resource requirements in a short time, and you're willing to pay a 5x-20x premium over dedi/colo to achieve that

cloud vs. servers
If you have an application where the performance and growth patterns are well known, cloud isn't a choice made for lowest cost. It may be best value for different reasons.

I've done ROI studies for several applications like that, and usually cloud has a higher total cost unless there are specific availability requirements or you don't have a facility that can meet a 99.9 SLA.

The key assumption is that you know a lot about the app and it's in a operating mode. If you're in a hyper growth mode, have fluctuating or seasonal demand, or you have no capital funds, cloud is a no brainer
