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

Carina C. Zona - Schemas for the Real World on Vimeo
Social app development challenges us how to code for users' personal world. Users are giving push-back to ill-fitted assumptions about their identity — including name, gender, sexual orientation, important relationships, and other attributes they value.

How can we balance users' realities with an app's business requirements?

Facebook, Google+, and others are grappling with these questions. Resilient approaches arise from an app's own foundation. Discover schemas' influence over codebase, UX, and development itself. Learn how we can use schemes to both inspire users and generate data we need as developers.

"The Substrate Virtual Machine, or SVM, is a ... ahead-of-time compiler for Java, and an implementation of parts of a JVM"

Using the SVM it is possible to ahead-of-time compile TruffleRuby and the Graal dynamic compiler to a single, statically linked native binary executable, that has no dependency on a JVM, and does not link to any JVM libraries...There is no Java bytecode - only compiled native machine code...

Note that a common confusion is that the SVM is an ahead-of-time compiler for the Java code that implements the TruffleRuby interpreter and the Graal compiler, not an ahead-of-time compiler for your Ruby program.


This gives you a native binary that implements Ruby, similar to the MRI or Rubinius executables."
