Go Links

I’ve spent near the entire day lying in bed, tapping away on a keyboard getting a little app working. This is what happens when you can stream all the content in the world to your screen. Anyway, a big bunch of links this week, so enjoy.

TensorFlow – I’m gonna be honest, I don’t know half of what these words mean, but I can already see a few jobs where this would be amazing.

How the Empire State Building was built – A classic bit of architecture; they just don’t build ’em like they used to.

Seventy-Five to Go – WordPress now runs 25% of all websites. That’s just amazing!

Beware of ads that use inaudible sound to link your phone, TV, tablet, and PC – No this isn’t the end of the world, but when advertisers are following up on tools developed by malware writers you have to wonder what they’re thinking.

Tote Boards – Another bit of classic architecture!

My first Service Worker – Now these look incredibly useful, bridging the gap between cache manifests and actual functionality.

Announcing Universal DNSSEC – All providers should be providing this by default, not as an option.

EditorConfig – Simple and hopefully it’ll take off.

Everything you ever wanted to know about cameras in side-scrolling video games – The title says it all.

The Hardware Inside B2 Cloud Storage – While I’ve yet to reach the storage requirements of Backblaze, it’s always good to read.

Why codegangsta’s cli package is the bomb – I’ve spent the morning using this package and it’s just beautiful.

Better Commits with Static Review – Don’t break master.

5 years of Scala and counting – I’ve gone down the Go route, but Scala does tempt me.

A few things about Redis security – Don’t add security yourself if someone else has done it better. Good example by Salvatore.
