Vibe is for V

The Vibe is back!
After many weeks wandering lost in the wilderness, I present to you the new and improved (caveat: exactly the same) vibe.
If you only look at one link from this edition of the vibe. This. Amazing use of WebRTC and HTML5.
A detailed look at WebRTC and some of the technology behind CubeSlam. Seriously go look at CubeSlam now.
A very handy and very large collection of HTML templates.
Did you look at CubeSlam yet?
HAProxy is in my top-10 list of technology that just works. Ninefold use it extensively for Managing Logs and routing within clustered Rails applications. The latest version has a ton of new features including SSL termination.
Docker is so hot right now. Even Google is using it. You can be too.
Even though it’s about Java, some great general points about microservice design. Simple components, pipes of data, all loosely connected, allowing evolution and change.
A nice microservice meta-summary.
Description of Event Sourcing using RabbitMQ.
Event Sourcing ensures that all changes to application state are stored as a sequence of events.
Speaking of RabbitMQ, from the Department of Benchmarks, Statistics and Misc Lies we have a detailed analysis of the performance profiles of the two biggest open-source AMQP implementations.
I think this is true. But then, I probably can’t be trusted. Because I am old(ish).
Creating idiomatic higher-level abstractions in our programming languages embiggens us all.
Obviously, more code emits more text. Higher level code generates an explanation utilizing higher level abstractions. This way we can use bigger building blocks not only in coding, but in problem solving.
Interesting read on an alternative general number type.
This was a thing. Apparently.
This also is a thing. I like Goat Simulator more.
The Vibe is an eventually consistent weekly collection of interesting links and … stuff.
It’s Ruby, it’s Rails, it’s programming, it’s databases, it’s the vibe, and, uh … No, that’s it.
It’s the vibe[^vibe]
