TWIL: July 10, 2022
This week I dedicated less time than usual for my learning endeavors, but I still managed to listen to very interesting podcasts, and found a cool article on Netflix’s system design and an awesome article on Generative Leaders. I hope you find it interesting too.
Episode 1801: WASM Everywhere with Steve Sanderson
WebAssembly is awesome – what else can you do with it? While at NDC London, Carl and Richard talked to Steve Sanderson about his work with WebAssembly, including Blazor. Steve talks about how WebAssembly continues to evolve adding WebAssembly System Integration. This opens the door to the idea that code in the WebAssembly can be run anywhere – any operating system, any language, using whatever compute is available. That gives an option to run code on the client, the server, and anywhere in between!
Episode 430: Multi-tenant Architectures
Azure FastTrack Engineers John Downs and Arsen Vladimirskiy explain how multi-tenant architectures can be deployed on Azure. They talk about the various factors that should be considered when designing these types of applications.
Episode 848: Journey Foods makes Tech with Biologist and Entrepreneur Riana Lynn
Journey Foods is a SaaS company that supports product management and intelligence services for food businesses. They are changing food science inefficiencies and problematic supply chains. Scott talks to biologist turned multi-hyphenate entrepreneur Riana Lynn about our food supply, how we understand it, how it’s analyzed and thought about, and how it can be improved with software.
NETFLIX system design
Interesting article on how Netflix works. It discusses concepts such as transcoding, as well as the main architectural components like Open Connect (CDN), Elastic Load Balancer (ELB), Zuul, Hystrix, EVCache and several others.
Why the World Needs Generative Leaders
Today more than ever, we are relying on our leaders to deliver. We’re asking more of them than we have in decades. We ran a year-long research project to examine how business leaders are currently performing and what people want and expect from them. Notably, 75% of the 9,000 employees who responded to our survey said they were satisfied with how leaders performed during the first wave of the pandemic.
Have an awesome week!
