Solid – Reshape the web as we know it
https://solid.inrupt.com/ Solid was created by the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Its mission is to reshape the web as we know it. Solid will foster a new breed of applications with capabilities above and beyond anything that exists today. Solid empowers users and organizations to separate their data from the applications that use it. It allows people to look at the same data with different apps at the same time. It opens brand new avenues for creativity, problem-solving, and commerce. Learn how it came to be. 另附：Tim Berners-Lee tells us his radical new plan to upend the World Wide Web、How solid is Tim’s plan to redecentralize the web?
How to Build a Low-tech Website?
https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018/09/how-to-build-a-lowtech-website/ Low-tech Magazine was born in 2007 and has seen minimal changes ever since. Because a website redesign was long overdue — and because we try to practice what we preach — we decided to build a low-tech, self-hosted, and solar-powered version of Low-tech Magazine. The new blog is designed to radically reduce the energy use associated with accessing our content.

The Shapes of CSS
https://css-tricks.com/the-shapes-of-css/ We also get the ::before and ::after psuedo elements in CSS, which give us the potential of two more shapes we can add to the original element. By getting clever with positioning, transforming, and many other tricks, we can make lots of shapes in CSS with only a single HTML element.
On Node Framework Popularity
https://hueniverse.com/on-node-framework-popularity-355fbde5cbe4 Much of the conversation about choosing an HTTP framework for your node.js application is about performance, features, stability, and support. But when almost every framework available delivers enterprise-grade performance, cutting edge features, and are generally well maintained, do the technical specs really matter that much? 另附：awesome-nodejs.

Validating performance and reliability of the new Dropbox search engine
https://blogs.dropbox.com/tech/2018/10/validating-performance-and-reliability-of-the-new-dropbox-search-engine/ In our previous post, we discussed the architecture of our new search engine, named Nautilus, and its use of machine intelligence to scale our search–ranking and content–understanding models. Along with best–in–class performance, scalability, and reliability, we also provided a foundation for implementing intelligent document ranking and retrieval features. This flexible system allows our engineers to easily customize the document–indexing and query–processing pipelines while maintaining strong safeguards to preserve the privacy of our users’ data. In this post, we will discuss the process that we undertook to ensure optimal performance and reliability.
Open-sourcing StateService: Automating recovery of third-party services after a major outage
https://code.fb.com/open-source/stateservice/ StateService is self-documenting — the individual states become part of configuration management (CM) software, such as a Chef cookbook. By replaying the states that were previously applied to a VM (or a group of VMs), StateService returns services to their last-known state.

In total the project took a year and a half to upgrade from Rails 3.2 to Rails 5.2. Along the way we took time to clean up technical debt and improve the overall codebase while doing the upgrade. Below we’ll talk about how we upgraded Rails, lessons we learned and whether we’d do it again.

The book is centered around three conceptual pieces that are fundamental to operating systems: virtualization, concurrency, and persistence. In understanding the conceptual, you will also learn the practical, including how an operating system does things like schedule the CPU, manage memory, and store files persistently. Lots of fun stuff! 另附：Should you learn C to “learn how the computer works”?
Motion design doesn’t have to be hard
https://medium.com/google-design/motion-design-doesnt-have-to-be-hard-33089196e6c2 Motion helps make UIs expressive and easy to use. Despite having so much potential, motion is perhaps the least understood of all the design disciplines. This may be due to it being one of the newer members of the UI design family. Visual and interaction design dates back to early GUIs, but motion had to wait for modern hardware to render animation smoothly.
The Psychology of Design
https://alistapart.com/article/psychology-of-design There are a number of debates about which additional skills designers should learn. Should designers code, write, or understand business? These skills are incredibly valuable but perhaps not essential. However, I would argue that every designer should learn the fundamentals of psychology. But knowing where to start can be a challenge. Which principles from psychology are useful? What are some examples of these principles at work? In this article, I’ll cover the basics, and discuss the ethical implications of using psychology in design.
