RethinkDB looks promising

RethinkDB is out – an open-source distributed database

RethinkDB is built to store JSON documents, and scale to multiple machines with very little effort. It has a pleasant query language that supports really useful queries like table joins and group by, and is easy to setup and learn.

An open-source distributed database with an intuitive query language, parallelized queries, and much more! It’s called RethinkDB and you can fork it on GitHub. What’s not to like?

Agile development & WMSS

Agile development & WMSS

I think what I called We Make Shitty Software is in other words the same thing as the agile process. Whatever it’s called, we all acknowledge that our software is imperfect, it’s a process, but we’re working to make it better, and more responsive to users.

FPC: a floating-point compressor

FPC is a very fast lossless compressor with better results than most traditional algorithms:

FPC compresses linear sequences of IEEE 754 double-precision floating-point values by sequentially predicting each value, xoring the true value with the predicted value, and leading-zero compressing the result.
