Bookmarked How to Build Software like an SRE
Post details
I’ve been doing this “reliability” stuff for a little while now (~5 years), at companies ranging from about 20 developers to over 2,000. I’ve always cared primarily about the software elements I describe as living “outside” the application – like, how does it get its configuration? What kinds of instances does it run on, and are those the best kinds to use? What steps does it take on its path from “code in a repository” to “running in production”? And I’ve always kept track of what I liked – which mechanisms allowed fast iteration and which caused frustration, which led to outages and which prevented them.

Bookmarked Entitlement in Open Source by Mike McQuaid 
Post details
There have been discussions in the aftermath of the log4j vulnerability about whether or not open source is broken or sustainable, what we can do to improve the sustainability of the open source ecosystem moving forwards, and the entitlement of users and companies in expecting maintainers to fix their problems.

Post details
Life without a REPL, and how to still be able to manipulate production which even has quite a few benefits over more one-off REPL-driven operations..

Something I've been thinking about for an alternative to rails console for Go, and of course Brandur Leach has excellent thoughts about it

Post details
As the world changes, so too must Tech Nottingham. We explore the future of Tech Nottingham events.

A lovely post, and I know that it was a very difficult post to write - but also not that TN will cease to be a thing.

The team have worked so incredibly hard to make remote work and it definitely feels like the right call, albeit a shame!

Bookmarked Stop Pretending Your Company is Remote by Luiz Felipe G. Pereira 
Post details
The pandemic made evident how much work can, and should, be different. The forced change to accommodate remote workflows also brought to light what I like to call “virtual offices”. Unlike truly remote friendly workplaces optimized for asynchronous communication, these aim to merely transport the office into a virtual space keeping the same unnecessary constraints of synchronous work intact, only replacing shoulder taps with Zoom calls. I’d love if we collectively agreed to start using a more appropriate name for these. They are office-less companies but they are not remote-friendly.

The problem is when you have a lot of posts, names start overlapping, or you want to make the date it was from more visible.

Still I do agree it can be useful!

Bookmarked Vanity URL for Go packages
Post details
Introduction If you have been working with Go programming language for a while, you would have noticed that a lot of open source packages that you import start with github.com/…. You would then use go get command to download the package and add it to your go.mod file. For instance: $ go get -u github.com/abvarun226/goiplookup What if you did not want this dependency on Github and rather wanted to host your own git server?
