Let’s go for my web review for the week 2022-23.
Tags: complexity, philosophy, economics, politics, ecology, commons
An excellent piece about the links between collapse and complexity. Obviously focuses more on socio-economics systems. Still some of it applies to other fields.
Tags: tech, architecture, complexity
Interesting view on the state of our industry regarding complexity. Don’t despair!

The current microservices obsession not only invite undue complexity in systems, it also bring unprepared developers into network related traps. This is a nice summary of the common misconceptions around this.

This is a good thing that the corresponding RFCs keeps being updated.

Looks like an interesting tool to simply manage personal servers.

Old video. A bit preachy, especially in the beginning, but then covers well the arguments of why counting stories is likely better than estimating them. In my opinion there’s a catch that is not covered here though: the quality and granularity of the stories matter.

Yet another inspiring piece by Kent Beck. I like his blunt honesty and self-reflection.

OK, this is clever and surprising. Still it is an interesting prospect. We’ll see how far this goes.
Bye for now!
