It Depends #35

Hello everyone.

The 35th edition of my weekly newsletter “It Depends” is out!

After multiple people asked me about it, I decided to write my thought process on deciding how large a method should be. It’s not about size as such but about reducing cognitive engagement (too large) and curiousity (too small).

From the internet this week, Ingrid on why decentralized applications don’t work, Brian Kerninghan interviewing Ken Thompson, @sc13ts on internal consistency in streaming systems, and @sarah_edo on why it should always be “us”, not “them” for engineering managers.

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.

Cheers!
