2012-10-05 Friday - Recent Interesting Finds...
I recently started following @highscal on Twitter - also see: http://highscalability.com/
I happened to come across Ikai Lan's blog [@ikai]- a treasure trove of interesting posts (and he's also very active on github - https://github.com/ikai)
On one of his posts - Ikai mentioned Google Apps Script - which I haven't looked at previously - and in particular - there was a mention of the Google Finance Services - which I want to remember to come back and review later: https://developers.google.com/apps-script/service_finance
See Tutorials: https://developers.google.com/apps-script/articles
Because of some recent performance tuning experiences ['challenges'] observed in a production environment with a 3rd party vendor's commercial Java application using Hibernate - I was also intrigued that Ikai also had a post providing examples of jOOQ - a DSL for creating the ORM between Java and SQL.
Finally, Ikai's write-up on LinkedIn's use of node.js had a mention regarding netty - which I haven't looked at in quite awhile - so this is another item to put on my reminder list for later research.
