Why I love bloggingby Rob Galanakis on 29/03/2014
I started to write a post about how I missed multithreading and speed going from C# to Python. I ended up realizing the service we built which inspired the post was poorly designed and took far more effort than it should have. The speed and multithreading of C# made it easier to come up with an inferior design.
The service needed to be super fast, but the legacy usage pattern was the problem. It needed to run as a service, but then we realize it’ll be running as a normal process. This is what happens when you focus too much on requirements and architecture instead of delivering value quickly. You create waste.
I wouldn’t have realized all of this if I didn’t sit down to write about firstname.lastname@example.org
