Today: Wardley maps , BaaS, AWS, and have I mentioned WARLDEY MAPS!!!

  • Wardley Maps : nice web tool allowing to create maps based on Simon Wardley mapping techniques for strategy in a fast paced changing world. If you do not know what a Wardley Map is or who Simon Wardley is, watch this video first.
  • Baas : blog post by engine year looking into the emerging and quickly picking up speed Backend as a Service and what is available out there. 
  • Amazon's Scorpion Problem - debatable point of view but with some insights, but ignores #aws market share aspect in the equation

Today : hash , compression, economics in Memory DB and anonymity made simple

  • xxHash : a fast 64 bit wide non cryptographic hash ( code
  • History of Lossless Data Compression Algorithms : a very nice overview of the history of loss less data compression algorithms by IEEE
  • The Sacred Economy :  how the money system will have to change—and is already changing, didn't have time to read it yet, but planning too. ( or if you want the book directly )
  • Aerospike : Flash optimised nosql database has been open sourced.. They have some bold claim on the performance of their product 
  • Streisand : sets up a new server running L2TP/IPsec, OpenSSH, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, Stunnel, and a Tor bridge. It also generates custom configuration instructions for all of these services.

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.
  • Algoxy : Book of Elementary Algorithms and Data structures
  • 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 
  • Escher: A language for programming in metaphors. This is a really cool programming language with a lot of potential, but probably also to far reaching and complex for your average developer.
