Let’s go for my web review for the week 2023-21.

Indeed… things have been changing very rapidly.
Tags: tech, hardware, programming, cpu
Very thorough overview on how registers are used when you get closer to the hardware. Very good resource to use as reference.
Tags: tech, memory
Everything you always wanted to know but didn’t dare asking about memory allocators. OK, maybe not “everything everything” but this gives a very good overview on how they work and the trade-offs they have to make.

Doesn’t give the whole picture (memory isn’t the only important parameter) but interesting results nonetheless. A few surprises in there, Java and C# do much better than one might assume for instance.
Tags: tech, c++, c, programming
Indeed, the times when we could pretend one was a superset of the other are long gone.
Tags: tech, safety, security, memory, c, c++, rust
Indeed, the story of integrating C and C++ with Rust isn’t a simple one right now. It might introduce larger attack surfaces. Some improvements are proposed in this paper.
Tags: tech, programming, python, rust
Nice list of patterns leveraging the Python type hints for richer and safer interfaces.
Tags: tech, linux, tools, command-line
Looks like a smart and interesting little tool. I definitely needed something like it more than once.
Tags: tech, business, cto, management
Interesting insights about the minutiae of the CTO role.
Tags: book, note-taking
Definitely something I learned way to late. I wish I had started with such summaries and book notes earlier.
Tags: tech, economics, history, capitalism, automation
Very interesting explorations of the early days of automation and computation. This shows another face of Babbage which is often ignored. It is a cruel demonstration on how his machine were first and foremost encroached on division of labor as inspired by plantations.

The fascinating world of micromice competitions. There’s a lot of thinking leading to those really smart designs.
Bye for now!
