    Designing Data-Intensive Applications – Single Leader Replication

    Designing Data-Intensive Applications – Single Leader Replication

    We dive back into Designing Data-Intensive Applications to learn more about replication while Michael thinks cluster is a three syllable word, Allen doesn't understand how we roll, and Joe isn't even paying attention.

    Some Fun APIs

    Some Fun APIs

    We couldn't decide if we wanted to gather around the water cooler or talk about some cool APIs, so we opted to do both, while Joe promises there's a W in his name, Allen doesn't want to say graph, and Michael isn't calling out applets.

    Making Money with Code

    We talk about the various ways we can get paid with code while Michael failed the Costco test, Allen doesn't understand multiple choice questions, and Joe has a familiar pen name.

    Write Great APIs

    We discuss all things APIs: what makes them great, what makes them bad, and what we might like to see in them while Michael plays a lawyer on channel 46, Allen doesn't know his favorite part of the show, and Joe definitely pays attention to the tips of the week.

    How to Scrum

    How to Scrum

    We discuss the parts of the scrum process that we're supposed to pay attention to while Allen pronounces the m, Michael doesn't, and Joe skips the word altogether.

    What is Scrum?

    What is Scrum?

    During today's standup, we focus on learning all about Scrum as Joe is back (!!!), Allen has to dial the operator and ask to be connected to the Internet, and Michael reminds us why Blockbuster failed.

Educative (and sometimes punny)!

You really get me to reconsider many aspects programming in general. You also get me to think twice about how I work with code on a day to day basis, which is very useful to me! You have a lot of experience and knowledge, thanks a lot for sharing!
