Today a really cool programming language, code optimization, AWS profitability, Algorithms book and last but not least strategy 

  • Commuter : an automated scalability testing tool that hunts down unnecessary sharing in your code. It try to identify shared cache lines within the code that can severely limit your software's ability to scale. [github]
  • No more hiding cloud revenue any longer for  Amazon :  For years, Amazon Web Services hid its revenue in the shadow of’s quarterly earnings statements. However, due to AWS growth and US accounting regulation it might need to finally disclose its profitability in more details.

  • Two very nice blog post from Simon Wardley - Playing chess with companies and Notes on organisation - Very good introduction on how to use Mapping to define and understand a Strategy as well as
