It Depends #46

Hello everyone!

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.

For those who prefer audio, you can listen to it on Spotify, Apple, or Google.

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.

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

Till next weekend!
