    The Journey for Large Files on GitHub

    techno-weenie.net 02 Jan '16, 9pm

    The Journey for Large Files on GitHub 02 Jan 2016 I am a big fan of video games, so I jumped at the chance to work the GitHub booth at the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) in 2012. It was my first time representing the company for a community that I’m an outsider of. I planned on spe...

    I recently spoke at the GitHub Patchwork event in Boulder last month. My son Nathan tagged along to get his first taste of the GitHub Flow . I don't necessarily want him to be a programmer, but I do push him to learn a little to augment his interest in meteorology and astronomy. The n...

    techno-weenie.net 04 Mar '12, 12am

    You want to do quick messaging between hosts, processes, or even threads. You want to use a different transport besides TCP: multicast, in-process, inter-process. The code doesn't change (besides the bind/connect calls). You want to take advantage of other ZeroMQ messaging patterns to...

  • One HTTP Handler to rule them all

    techno-weenie.net 22 Oct '13, 5pm

    Justinas Stankevičius wrote a post about writing HTTP middleware in Go. Having seen how Rack changed the Ruby web framework landscape, I'm glad Go has simple HTTP server interfaces baked in.
