VCS Nirvana

Being generally obsessed with source-control means that I’m always interested in seeing better VCS implementations than the ones we already have. Here’s my list of features that I’d want for the next VCS tech. Note: This is an update to a previous blog posting, and follows a new Git release which addresses something I’ve been talking about for a while - “sparse clone” (see below).

Unlimited Repo Size.

Subversion, Perforce and PlasticSCM can go up to terabytes of history quite easily, whereas Git has a hypothetical top limit. Git can’t go to terabytes yet. Sure, Git-LFS allows Git…

2020 Tech Predictions

It’s that time of the year again, when I make predictions for the upcoming year. As has become my tradition now for nigh-on a decade, I will first go back over last years’ predictions, to see how well I called it (and keep me honest), then wax prophetic on what I think the new year has to offer us.

Getting More Negotiating One Sheet

I’ll often use this sheet to prepare for negotiation. It’s from Getting More. The most useful concept from this book is the idea that each sides values things differently, and unequally. If you can uncover those, you might be willing … Continue reading

A scavailable Squid proxy cache because Maven!

I had opportunity to use Squid recently at work and want to share - also because Google didn't just hand me this blueprint as I had expected.

Actually it was Julian Simpson, he of ThoughtWorks/ Neo4j/ DevOps New Zealand fame, who inspired me down the pub one night (John Scott's Lund, lovely place).

The problem we had was Maven Central's infrastructure not being good enough for our needs; we had too many failing builds because of connectivity issues - artifact downloads. Basically HTTP GET. Between Maven-the-client and Sonatype's CDN things just weren't working well…

Bootstrapping Windows for programmatic fun & profit

At work we do a bunch of work to ensure our database product works as expected. You're familiar with unit tests and integration tests of course, but take that up a notch and consider the domain - a database product - and you just need a lot more engineering around the thing. A full blown database is a different beast than your bog standard mom & pop web shop, and product is another level of complexity over common website type of stuff, in that we send out binary artifacts to customers, and they run them for years. I trust you…

Stay A While and Listen Book II – Heaven, Hell, and Secret Cow Levels

Through countless interviews, discussions, and research Dave pieces together incredible hard work the designers, engineers, and game developers put […]
