Behind our databases - The illustrated history of programming languages

A masterpiece:

12-ritchie-thompson

1983 - Bjarne Stroustrup bolts everything he’s ever heard of onto C to create C++. The resulting language is so complext that programs must be sent to the future to be compiled by the Skynet artificial intelligence. Build times suffer. Skynet’s motives for performing the service remain unclear but spokespeople from future say “there is nothing to be concerned about, baby,” in an Austrian accented monotones. There is some specuation that Skynet is nothing more than a pretentious buffer overrun.

Build a Cloud Thermometer with Arduino, Adafruit, and DynamoDB

Geeky:

This guide will show you how to build a thermometer that solves both the problems above. By using an Arduino and Adafruit CC3000 WiFi breakout, you can build a probe thermometer that logs temperature data to Amazon’s DynamoDB cloud database service. With the temperature data in the cloud, you can monitor it remotely over the web, and even use the history of measurements to predict when the food will be ready!

You still have the time to order this for XMas.

The sound of sorting - 15 sorting algorithms visualized and sonified

Considering the number of views on YouTube, I’m probably one of the lasts to discover this video. But I cannot imagine one reader of this blog not loving it though.

Links:

  1. The Sound of Sorting - “Audibilization” and Visualization of Sorting Algorithms - panthema.net
  2. Sorting Algorithms (slower, grouped and ordered) - YouTube
  3. The algorithms are: selection sort, insertion sort, quick sort, merge sort, heap sort, radix sort (LSD), radix sort (MSD), std::sort (intro sort), std::stable_sort (adaptive merge sort), shell sort, bubble sort, cocktail shaker sort, gnome sort, bitonic sort and bogo sort.

Gartner shares findings from North Pole Inc. Big Data assessment

Quite entertaining:

“We do a jolly good job year after year,” claims NPI’s Founder and CEO, Santa Claus, “but I have really put the pressure on my IT management team to achieve better efficiencies and creatively use information to innovate.”

Simple answers... can we apply xkcd's recipe to NoSQL databases?

xkcd simple answers

I bet this was used for concluding that NoSQL is less disruptive than we thought and that NoSQL is not the revolutionary technology analysts and VCs expected.

Who needs databases?

VentureBeat about a new company, Orchestrate.io:

Who needs SQL? In fact, who needs databases?

I’ll assume VentureBeat is storing their content directly on /dev/null.

✚ Now to the the interesting part: Antony Falco is one of the founders of Basho. I still seem to remember reading about his departure from Basho, so this hasn’t happened too long ago.

Best NoSQL April’s Fool

I know a few people that avoid the Internet completely on April’s Fool. After being tricked every year by my dad, I’m very careful with what I’m posting on that day. This year has been easy on me, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a couple of good ones.

My favorites:

The Real-Time Cure: Slow and Steady

The Big Data space is flooded with buzzwords, and “real-time” has become a staple adjective when touting the advantages of Big Data technologies. However, very few companies have successfully articulated the true economic value of ad-hoc data analysis. While the prospect of speed-of-thought analytics appears attractive, there are actually many indicators that speed sacrifices quality.

It can no longer be ignored: slow is the new fast.

A trend a missed, but it totally makes sense. At least today.
