Engineering Management, Object Spreadsheets, Microservices Hindsight, and Slack Shaping
- Management in 10 Tweets (Marc Hedlund) — My most frequently given pieces of management advice.
- Object Spreadsheets — an enhanced spreadsheet tool with support for storing and manipulating structured data. End-user developers can use it directly to work with a data set, or to build a web application that offers constrained view and update access to a larger population of users.
- What I Wish I’d Known Before I Scaled Uber to 1,000 Services (YouTube) — watch before you get seduced by the microservices press machine. Everything from failure modes to logging floods and (twitch) migrations.
- Shaping Your Slack — Rand’s advice for conventions and configuration that make good communities.
