- A great presentation by Jon Sondow on the Netflix Asgard Project- a Grails application server that deploys to AWS. Highlights include:
- Obama for America used it to keep its sites rolling and alive
- Used to be Netflix Application Console
- It is only one of the open source projects on Netflix's GitHub page.
- Reasons not to just use the AWS console include - you can hide the keys, customize the deployment model, automate workflow, log changes, and more.
- Also check out youtube.com/theasgardshow - a regular Q&A show they archive on YouTube.
- The Oboe.js Async Ajax Processing Project -Oboe.js's makes web applications faster by wrapping https's request-response model with a progressively streamed interface. It glues a transport that sits somewhere between streaming and downloading onto to a JSON parser that sits somewhere between SAX and DOM. It is small enough to be a micro-library, doesn't have any external dependencies and doesn't care which other libraries you need it to speak to.
- Is Rubinius X going to push Ruby into the fully functional and async I/O future? - Ken found this by reading a tweet : "Erik Meijer @headinthebox - rubini.us/2013/10/15/int…. Just use Scala. You are wasting your life." Ouch. Reading through we found Rubinius X. Very interesting goals for the future of Ruby. Now how will JRuby and MRI deal with the changes?
- Akka persistence is coming.
- We had to peel Sujan off the ceiling on this one... Apple patent on Touch typing / Multi-touch upheld!!! - Um, what??? We just started to LIKE Android phones!
- Python 3.4 is out - Most of the new packages added directly reflect what’s going on in the software dev world right now including Async I/O, but also including data science research APIs in math, statistics, etc...
- The Free Lunch is Over, Again: Distributed Systems presentation by Andry Gross, Principal Architect at Basho (makers of Riak) is a great read about the future of multi-core distributed programming and how it is taking shape right now.
- I sure hope this is legit: Over 500 free programming books on GitHub - we had fun reading this one on writing unmaintainable code.

"I can't stand a standing desk, but I can chase a running VM..."

This is a pretty busy one, so we'll dispense with the comments and go right to the links.
- Probably the lead story - the Lambda final revisions are in for JDK 8 and Brian Goetz has an informal summary here
- RxJava: Functional Reactive Programming on the JVM (Java, Scala, Clojure)
- Angular-sprout -- Builds on angular-seed, basically a modular angular starter project, clone it and go:
- jQuery 1.11 releasedAaaaarrrrgh!: 1.x is the version that still supports IE 6/7/8, so nice that there are still new things for us poor souls who still have to support old versions of IE
- Asynchronous Module Definition support
- performance improvements
- Bower support
- and NO API changes!
- IOS world
- Valve announces Steam OS, a linux-based free gaming-oriented OS that device makers can freely include. Could disrupt the gaming market:
- RSA tells customers to stop using part of its BSAFE product since it has been pwned by the NSA:
- In the comments section: "All of a sudden, Richard Stallman's continuing tirade about purity of open source, and the need for proper documentation on everything (hardware included) doesn't seem so crackpot now. Hindsight, but yes, we should have listened." Interesting, yes?
