Hi everyone!

The 31st edition of my weekly newsletter “It Depends” is out! Check it out —

This week I talk about the second law of building software platforms — External Programmability. This principle is as critical to building true platforms as it is conspicuously missing from many of the so-called “platforms” we come across. Any system can be modified from within. Platforms should be modifiable from the outside.

From the internet, @mikiobraun on large-scale software engineering is still difficult, how Postman handles millions of concurrent connections, and a look at the attack on academic integrity by Big Cos of all sorts.

If you like reading about technology and great teams that build technology, you should sign up for the next edition. Bring your friends too! You can check out the previous editions in the archive —
