A blog about the joys and perils of software development

Great Videos (and Articles) for a Software Developer

Commuting to work by public transportation? Doing the dishes? Regardless, you might want a distraction. I found some time during the holidays to look at some new articles and videos on the web. (This is a digest from my Twitter feed. Follow me @johnnybigert.)

Great stuff:

  • Steve McConnell – brilliant as always. What makes a World Class Software Company? video
  • Great talk on API design by Joshua Bloch. video
  • “JavaScript the Good Parts” video. Here’s something you (or I) never expected me to say: JavaScript is a really cool language! See for yourself: video
  • No refactoring? Good article on design principles: “SOLID is append only”. article
  • Nice paper on how Spotify’s peer-to-peer technology works (by former colleagues from KTH :) article

Good stuff:

  • Demo of how to set up an Windows Azure project and run it locally. Extensive prerequisites! video
  • Local file storage, 3d animation, audio analysis etc. in HTML5 today! Demo/presentation video. video
  • Intro video, Amazon Web Services: wow! CloudFront, Queues, SimpleDB, MechTurk, Private Cloud, DNS… It goes on and on! video
  • Confusing presentation but great message: “Jellyfish makes sure your common JavaScript code works for any browser/target”. video
  • Nice intro to jQuery from a twelwe-year old kid(!). I’m humbled. video
  • Domain driven development? The “Supermodel” DDD framework: “make simple MVC stuff easy and complex stuff possible”. video

  6. Trouvé ce commentaire de Primo Levi sur Amazon :« This book…………is filled with evil……it has no literary quality and reading it is agony », comments Primo Levi in his introduction. « The author comes across as what he is: a coarse, stupid, arrogant, long winded scoundrel ».And yet « â€¦..it is one of the most instructive books ever published ».Partagez-vous cet avis, Israël ?
