  • Bright shiny things that break

    Yesterday, I came across this article that discussed "Facebook's code quality problem" on Hacker News.

    It says that, Facebook is now throwing 429 people at their iOS app with 18,000 classes. With graphs showing more incidents on the production server when engineers are working on it, it's been observed that Facebook is suffering code quality problems. The author concluded that if relationships between the moving parts of each system isn't well understood and well tested, it will definitely break things. Go on and give it a read if you've got the time.

    As an outside observer, it's easy pointing fingers at their demise and feel smug about it. A reductive conclusion would cynically say, if you like facebook's culture of "Move fast and break things", simply adopt the mantra of If brute force doesn't solve your problem, then you aren't using enough.

  • Moving Angular generator to use libsass

    When Yeoman generated Gruntfile.js, it comes with compass configured for sass. But the speed with which compass compiles things is such a pain in the ass. libsass to the rescue with better performance, and click the link to see how you can configure it with your existing Gruntfile.js.

    For those of you who are lucky enough not to understand a thing I said, ignore it as just technical geek talk.

  • Fall of Meritocracy

    What's meritocracy? Here's how they defined it in the dictionary.

    Meritocracy: Government or the holding of power by people selected according to merit.

    That sound pretty good in days like these when you consider the alternative of state-wide socialism.

    That is until you take into account that smarter/more intelligent people achieve more in life, earn more in their career and produce relatively smarter children. These children when they inherit the wealth and the intelligent society of their parents, will continue to achieve in their life too.

    The argument of this essay is that even though those children would have to strive for deserved greatness in their life, they did not have any merit whatsoever to deserve to be born with higher IQ in the higher middle/upper class anymore than the less privileged children of the slums.

    Pretty well written essay, though the conclusion seems pretty far-fetched.

    Give it a read, and tell me what you think.
