It Depends #46
Competitive programming, cleaning up noisy labels, forking gRPC, and the heptagon of configuration
I just sent out It Depends #46. Go get your weekly dose of great weekend reading!
This week on the blog, I wrote about the rise of competitive programming to fetish levels in colleges and how this has broken the junior engineer hiring process. It’s a classic case of gaming the metric which is hurting the industry badly IMO.
From the internet this week, Aline Guisly on using event-driven architecture to clean noisy labels, @mattrickard on the heptagon of configuration, DRPC as a lightweight gRPC, and @orydland’s introduction to socio-technical architecture.
