This song makes me smile.  I hope it makes you smile too.


This is an amazing time to be a developer. The possibilities are endless.


Thanks to @davewiner for calling this out. If you're not outraged by apps breaking the web then you're not paying attention.


One of the most exciting announcements from Build this week. I think of this as "Kafka as a Service" (no setup!)

No: Was looking forward to attending but sometimes life gets in the way. Have a great summit!


Nice post comparing deployment experiences on Azure and Google Cloud


Exciting times. Service Fabric is going open source and will have an open dev process on GitHub.


Azure Sphere will help secure the future of IOT. This paper explains seven properties for highly secure devices


Good to see this happen. Nice concise comparison of HTTP 1.1 and HTTP 2 too.

Cryptocurrencies are centrally controlled by miners who can rewrite history at will.


"Serverless makes EDA and microservices a necessity." It's about damn time.


Sometimes I think JavaScript syntax is a form of steganography. I know there's business logic in there somewhere but it's hard to find.


Interesting. "asynchronous delivery eliminates the need for costly DOM and style queries, continuous polling, and use of custom plugins"
