It's sorta pointless to figure out how to "scale agile" to your 20 team program if you can't get a single team to ship regularly.

@bdha @tsantero Repeat after me: “The schema is my friend. I love the schema. DDL is fun to write and test.”@bdha What’s the point spread on how long before “we need to build our own db”?@jmrodri I like the fact you can move between networks and never drop the session.I <3 mosh (https://t.co/N74OGNrUZs) SO MUCH.“More than half of the senior engineers at Etsy, are remote employees.” http://t.co/4t1BmDZIRW

@lusis @wfarr You say “innovative biz model and org structure” but I keep hearing “company store”.Open floor plans suck, indeed. Private office or WFH vastly better for any job which requires thinking and/or flow state.Pretty excited for 2015 plans so it all balances outWow 2014. I’m not sad to see you go.

/me passes graybeard talking stick to @markimbriacoBar codes are the future.@darachennis @randomfrequency too much candy not enough nose@darachennis Because Dunning-Krueger said so.@ohlol @adamhjk @Twirrim How do you make config mgmt faster if it’s only ever single threaded? CPUs aren’t getting faster.@Twirrim @adamhjk I agree given current state. Likely need entirely new approach for a truly production ready solution.@adamhjk All about API & task design, I think.@seancribbs @adamhjk Interesting. Thanks for the pointer!@adamhjk Yep. Seems like task dependency discovery/tracking and parallel scheduling is a thing computers could assist.@cmeik Or maybe a CM monad…@cmeik Aaaaaaah! Or we could write our own proglang. What could possibly go wrong there?@cmeik Or apply a bit more imagination to their design. mruby on top of a smart-ish C++ runtime, for example.@pavlobaron I guess. Highly irritating especially in elastic cloud environments :(It’s almost 2015…when will config mgmt tools get native support for parallel task execution?PoE switches + Arduino + Front-end unix-ish box = modern Connection Machine hardware?@geekbrit we live in the future….arduino, RaspPi, etc.
