Disaster Links

Yesterday, at 4 am Eastern Time, the primary US data centre we use had a control plane fault. Cue much activity as disaster recovery became real. Anyway, not much in the way of links this week; either the Internet was slow or I was too busy.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes – First a link to a game but only because it looks ace. Will have to try this one.

GitHub & Yubico – U2F looks pretty cool so get a dirt-cheap dongle while they’re hot.

Ludicrously Fast Page Loads – Everything’s getting bigger and more complex, which means we need to spend more time making sure we’re not sacrificing the users experience.

Catcierge – This is what technology was made for.

Web Fonts Performance – I love web fonts, my next site has got them, but the performance hit is always something I’m wary of.

phpunit-vw – “Any similarities with a current event concerning (but not limited to) a multinational automobile manufacturer are purely coincidental.”

Developing with Docker at IFTTT – A good article showing real-world usage of Docker in a local dev environment.

Rebuilding Our Infrastructure with Docker, ECS, and Terraform – And on the flip side, here’s real-world usage in production. ECS looks like it answers a lot of problems.

A cartoon guide to Flux – Because any new way of working takes a while to understand.
