Welcome to the 10th issue of engineering brew.
#Scale #Consistency #Metrics
This post goes into depth about the metrics at Airbnb, and I really wanted to summarize it well. But, after 3 failed attempts, I am going to use their own summary (which is really good).
#WebComponents #Extraction #OpenSource
This post talks about how Github used web components, why they use it and how they go about extracting them from their own monolith.
#AWS #Security #MultipleWays
This is rather a list post on all the ways you can use to secure your AWS S3 buckets. I am pretty sure you have used a few of them in the past, but it is a good list of all the possible options available to you and how to use them.
#WFH #Burnout #WorkLifeBalance
This is a great post on avoiding burnout. I think what Farhan (author) talks about in this post is super powerful. It starts with “defining and communicating boundaries” and why. Overall a really good read and worth sharing with your broader team.
#If #Benchmarks #M1
This post asks a simple question: how costly is adding a never-taken if branch in an otherwise active part of the codebase running on either x86 or M1 chip. And they dive deeeeeep, like really deep.
Thank you for reading.
