very nice rant on modern software development:
That's a #mustread for every developer and engineer!

"Windows 95 was 30Mb. Today we have web pages heavier than that! [...] Google keyboard app routinely eats 150 Mb. Is an app that draws 30 keys on a screen really five times more complex than the whole Windows 95?"

"We put virtual machines inside Linux, and then we put Docker inside virtual machines, simply because nobody was able to clean up the mess that most programs, languages and their environment produce. We cover shit with blankets just not to deal with it."

Go read it! #tech


@martin auf einem unteren Level verbraucht massenhaft schlechter code massenhaft Energie und andere Ressourcen. Es geht ja nicht nur um die Ehre der Informatik, sondern um Real World Problems. Der Markt richtet das leider nicht.
