The 32nd edition of my weekly newsletter “It Depends” is out! Check it out!

From the internet, the drama between Linux commnity and University of Minnesotta, Justin Jaffray on push versus pull query engines, and a fantastic visualization of how Kafka works.
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.
