Exploring consensus via python.(24 Mar 2018)
How do you get different computers that are part of a larger cluster to agree on what the value of something is?
We try and answer that question.
We also learn about, CASPaxos, the consensus protocol.
Go Garbage collector and Large maps with pointers.(25 Jan 2018)
I'm left wondering, shouldn't the Go runtime then not do it for me/you by default?
Anytime the runtime sees a map that is larger than X and the keys to that map contains pointers,
the runtime inlines(for lack of a better term) that map into one whose keys are ints(or whatever) and does the string->ints
hashing for you without you even noticing.
