Property Graphs, Election Tech, Technical Debt, Tunnelling SSH over HTTP Proxies
- Managing Delivery Networks: A Use Case for Graph Databases — very interesting description of architecture of a routing solution. Turns out we didn’t need a graph; we needed a property graph. In short, a property graph is a graph data structure with the addition of properties (key, value pairs) which sit on the edges and vertices of the graph.
- GE2019 Election Tech Handbook — Google Doc keeping track of the various tech projects around the UK’s 2019 general election.
- How to Balance Technical Debt — as no org has beautiful perfect code, every org struggles to balance feature development against paying down technical debt so they can move faster. The insight here is to quantify reliability and set expectations, so you can increase the amount of dev time when reliability falls below expectations.
