Lots of good stuff in there.
Today I rebuilt one of our micro-services using Go 1.7.
1.7’s new SSA compiler produces faster code but I was surprised to see this much improvement. This isn’t a perfect comparison – a couple of library dependencies got updated as well and Kubernetes may have put the containers on different machines in the cluster.
I’ve been using the Fish shell for a while now. Its auto-completion is so much better than Bash. You should try it.
I was looking at the Fish docs this morning and stumbled across this little gem.
Every configuration option in a program is a place where the program is too stupid to figure out for itself what the user really wants, and should be considered a failure of both the program and the programmer who implemented it.
