This really is the Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made by Air New Zealand
I have recently been listening to a few of the NDC talks from around the world and the one today that has caught my interest is this one, Clean Coders Hate What Happens to Your Code When You Use These Enterprise Programming Tricks by Kevlin Henney.
I particularly liked the inclusion of FizzBuzz Enterprise Edition. For those that don’t know FizzBuzz is a simple programming challenge, that used to be and still is in some organisations an interview question.
The problem is
For numbers 1 through 100,
if the number is divisible by 3 print Fizz;
if the number is divisible by 5 print Buzz;
if the number is divisible by 3 and 5 (15) print FizzBuzz;
else, print the number.
It is not a difficult problem, and it can be solved in a few simple lines of code.
if n % 15 == 0:
elif n % 3 == 0:
elif n % 5 == 0:
there are even more concise versions of this code but this is simple to read and understand.
What FizzBuzz Enterprise Edition does is humorously take certain enterprise software design principles to their extreme.
To be aired on August 18, Marvel’s The Defenders combines Jessica Jones the ultimate badass detective, Luke Cage, the bullet-proof man, Ironfist, and Matthew Murdock, the devil of hell’s kitchen, otherwise known as Daredevil, this is awesome!
Amazing new trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie with background music ‘Legend Has It’ by Run the Jewels.
Well not me but, this is an amazing story from Jason Scott who runs Textfiles.com about a time he was sued (genuinely) for what at the end of the trial was Two Billion Dollars, let that settle in for a minute, no that is not a typo…. A hilarious and scary story, showing the hilarious lengths that people will go to, and the folly of greed.
What can I say, I’m looking forward to this next year, the first movie was fantastic and I can’t wait to see what they do next.
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s quite impressive that someone actually built a real, working chainsword. Check it out.
All is not yet dust…
Warhammer TV’s latest announcement of Burning of Prospero boxed set, and it looks epic.
The Tau expansion into the Damocles sector has arrived in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada and it looks amazing!. I love the inclusion of auxiliary races that the Tau are famous for.
For the Greater Good!
