The ColdFusion 'metrics log', an oft-missed or misunderstood feature, 'new' since CF10 (Part 1)

I'd like to take a diversion from my recent posts focused on CF2016 and talk about something that applies (and should interest) anyone using CF 10, 11, or 2016.

Iterate or die

Here's a conclusion I've made building consumer products for many years: the speed at which a company innovates is limited by its iteration speed. I don't even mean throughput here. I just mean the cycle time.

My issue with GPU-accelerated deep learning

I've been spending several hundred bucks renting GPU instances on AWS over the last year. The speedup from a GPU is awesome and hard to deny. GPUs have taken over the field. Maybe following the footsteps of Bitcoin mining there's some research on using FPGA (I know very little about this).

boot-new

In my previous three blog posts about Boot -- Rebooting Clojure, Building On Boot, and Testing With Boot -- I looked at why World Singles decided to switch from Leiningen to Boot, as well discussing one of the missing pieces for us (testing).

Testing With Boot

In Building On Boot, I gave some high level benefits we'd found with Boot, compared to Leiningen, and how it had helped up streamline our build process.

Building On Boot

In yesterday's blog post, Rebooting Clojure, I talked about our switch from Leiningen to Boot but, as Sven Richter observed in the comments, I only gave general reasons why we preferred Boot, without a list of pros and cons.

Analyzing 50k fonts using deep neural networks

For some reason I decided one night I wanted to get a bunch of fonts. A lot of them. An hour later I had a bunch of scrapy scripts pulling down fonts and a few days later I had more than 50k fonts on my computer.

Spring MVC Get Controller & Method Name

The one thing I really love about my Spring Boot Introductory Course is that my students are always asking me questions. I had this question come in recently and I thought we should take this chance to discuss it.

I believe in the 10x engineer, but...

The easiest way to be a 10x engineer is to make 10 other engineers 2x more efficient. Someone can be a 10x engineer if they do nothing for 364 days then convinces the team to change programming language to a 2x more productive language.

Books I read in 2015

Early last year when I left Spotify I decided to do more reading. I was planning to read at least one book per week and in particular I wanted to brush up on management, economics, and technology.

More MCMC – Analyzing a small dataset with 1-5 ratings

I've been obsessed with how to iterate quickly based on small scale feedback lately. One awesome website I encountered is Usability Hub which lets you run 5 second tests. Users see your site for 5 seconds and you can ask them free-form questions afterwards.
