Insomnia

When I fail to sleep, I feel there is a background process that I don’t manage to kill and that eats all my cpu. 😕

Unique

I need to be unique. Like a primary key.

Millenium Delish

We have started to name our releases at work with a name of our choosing.
And today it was my turn to issue the release, I came up with this invented marvelous creation:

Millenium Delish

Today’s release

It’s just a cool practice we adopted at work to motivate us to make releases because usually it is the task that nobody wants to do so much it takes you time and make you stress out.

Cool stuff !

* I know there’s a typo in MillenNium it is a feature not a bug =p

Today i liked my job

I just want to tag this day like you would git tag your project. I liked my job today, I felt contributing actively and positively working with very different kind of people like journalists, designers and dba. It was fun.

The day started with a terribly blocking bug to solve and continued with campaigning to other developers to get them to review my 176 files pull request. It is hard duty because you need to chase them so much they flee from you at all cost, but once you capture one you need to be nice. As for the blocking bug, fortunately once you think hard enough anything can be solved. Solving it unblocked us for our big goal of the day.

Tcp relationships

Sometimes I think that human relationships are just like tcp connections. Sometimes they suddenly close and someone has to reconnect. Sometimes no matter the retries, the connection is just refused.

Dev confused about how to implement his API :

Religion is so far better than computing. If only we had some kind of prophet too, at least we would know what to do in advance. Seriously.

— Today at work. In the end, we decided to go for it and refactor later 😀

Dude, where’s your paranoia?

Working with Java bears

Today’s story is about security. At work, one of our big construction site is to move old SOAP webservices into modern RESTful webservices. One of these webservices’ job is to generate a personalized pdf for a user based on the id of their banking operation. Doing this was not trivial considering our architecture, but it was rather fun, and it came with extra fun because developers are left alone with themselves to decide how to do things with no site manager to supervise how the building is going to be. No plan, just build it. Developers are expected to be their own architects. So developers are also expected to communicate with each other on how they’re going to do things. Sometimes it leads to funny situations.
