    Monday morning thoughts: OData - DJ Adams

    Monday morning thoughts: OData - DJ Adams

    This is a reading of one of the SAP Community posts in the Monday morning thoughts series from 2018. In it, I think about OData, in particular where it came from and why it looks and acts like it does. I also consider why I think it was a good protocol for an organisation like SAP to embrace.

    The User Interface - from The UNIX Time-sharing System - A Retrospective

    The User Interface - from The UNIX Time-sharing System - A Retrospective

    This episode, recorded on Monday 12th October 2020, features a section from the paper "The UNIX Time-sharing System - A Retrospective", written by Dennis M Ritchie, at Bell Labs, Murray Hill, New Jersey. A version of this paper was presented at the 10th Hawaii International Conference on the System Sciences in January 1977. The section is "The User Interface", which gives us some great insights into the origins and design of the Unix and Linux command interpreter, also known as the shell.

    12 Factor Apps in Plain English - Will Koffel - 14 Jan 2014

    I came across this recently and thought it was a decent summary of the 12-factor methodology, despite being already 5 years old. As the author mentions at the start, some tech is perhaps a little outdated but the fundamental ideas still hold.

    A tribute to the late Dennis Ritchie delivered at Dennis Ritchie Day at Bell Labs, Murray Hill, NJ, September 7, 2012

    Bell Labs, Murray Hill, NJ, September 7, 2012. I think it's important to remember some of the great thinkers and creators, whose work underpins so much of what we rely upon today. Dennis is one of those people. I remember that Dennis passed away only a few days after Steve Jobs, and his passing was somewhat eclipsed, which made me a little sad. But C and Unix, Dennis's legacy, strongly endures.
