JUXT are a software engineering firm. We build, we consult and we share our many libraries with the community. We choose to only use one programming language, Clojure, and in this podcast we will talk about various things related to what's going on in the company at the time.
The Strength of the Record S3E1
In this episode, we dive into the concept of a 'record’. We examine what makes records technically superior to triples and tables and go back in time to uncover humanity’s long-standing preference for simple records.
User Empowerment S3E2
Juxtaposed against some software of the 90s like Microsoft Access, Lotus Notes, and Visual Basic, there is a distinct contrast in our current world. Malcolm argues that with today's fixation on Continuous Deployment, software has become static, brittle, and inflexible. In this episode, we talk about how users have consequently become disempowered. Why have we have created a culture so dependent on developers? What is the hidden cost of this incrementalism? And, how can we redistribute agency to users again?
Separating Storage and Compute S3E3
The separation of storage and compute is a key industry trend impacting all kinds of organisations and is acutely important for the design of modern database systems. In this episode, we discuss how general desires for increased availability, better scalability, and lower costs, has heavily influenced our own plans for XTDB's future 2.0 architecture. Listen to insights from the team, including a sneak peek of the kinds of things we're cooking up!
