“A Cloud Guru” on how they optimized their multi-million 💵 cloud bill

Everyone and their dog are now offering ARM system in their portfolio. Amazon now, too. I think these are only really useful with certain workload types like AI, ML, these sort of things. Wondering how much demand there really is for these kind of systems, and if they make a profit for Amazon 🤔.

A great guide by Catalina Turlea on how to achieve a clean GIT history. How to avoid pitfalls, gotchas and bad habits right from the start. Especially useful for people (noobs) like me, who do not have a development background.

Owen Williams explains why Fortnite is more than a game for many people, it’s a place where not only gaming, but a whole lot of social interaction takes place.

Dan Abramov on why clean code can be overrated and why one should avoid becoming a 'clean code zealot'.

Mh, es ist schon ein bisschen vernichtend, wenn man alle Qualitätsprobleme von Apple mal auf einem Haufen zusammenfasst. Klar, vieles “nur” Details. Aber Details sind gerade dann sehr wichtig, wenn man ein bestimmtes Feature ständig nutzt, oder wenn man eine Aktion zigmal am Tag ausführt.

CloudFlare offers a new Internet speed test. First impression is good, seems to be much more detailed than the others. It feels like Ookla's speedtest is widely known by now, and internet providers are able to boost the speed just for their test sites. Or maybe that just in my head 🤷‍♂️.

Remote Development is only one reason why I decided to check out VSCode again. Another is the stillstand and total lack of communication over at SublimeText. The last build is from October 2019. Maybe VSCode will finally help me to be able to properly develop my Python stuff from the iPad.

The Kerner Report was released in 1968, surprisingly denounced white racism and caused quite an uproar back then. Unfortunately, not much seems to have changed when it comes to the deeply ingrained, systematic racism 😞.

I think this video does a decent job summing up the events, that took place the last couple of days in the US. Speechless.
