UTF-8 Everywhere

UTF-8 Everywhere: "To promote usage and support of the UTF-8 encoding, to convince that this should be the default choice of encoding for storing text strings in memory or on disk, for communication and all other uses. We believe that all other encodings of Unicode (or text, in general) belong to rare edge-cases of optimization and should be avoided by mainstream users."

phpmaster | REST - Can You do More than Spell It? Part 1

phpmaster | REST - Can You do More than Spell It? Part 1: "As I’ve noted above, REST is not a true architecture and it doesn’t force you to use certain tools or protocols. But most implementation use HTTP, primarily because of it’s simplicity. Every protocol has operations defined in it that perform the CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, and Delete) work required when data is involved. HTTP uses the four basic operations GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE to do it’s CRUD work."

Startups: Bands for Hackers - Peter Sobot

Startups: Bands for Hackers - Peter Sobot: "Like many bands, many startups begin in parents’ garages - serious business in a non-serious atmosphere. Founders (or band members) spend every waking moment together, working hard to perfect their craft and their endeavour. While bands work to perfect their lyrics, melodies and rhythms, startups work to perfect their pitch, product and business plan. Instead of fans, startups get users; instead of trying to impress the A&R rep that may show up to a performance, startups try to impress the investors in the audience on demo day. For bands, this demo is a rough CD - for startups, it’s their first product. Both are MVPs."

They Ain’t Making Any More of Them: The Great Engineering Shortage of 2012 | TechCrunch

They Ain’t Making Any More of Them: The Great Engineering Shortage of 2012 | TechCrunch: "At a party recently a startup founder told me “If you could find me five great engineers in the next 90 days I’d pay you $400,000.” Which is crazy talk. Unless you stop to consider that Instagram’s team (mostly engineers) was valued at almost $80 million per employee or that corporate development heads often value engineers at startups they are acquiring at a half-million to million dollars per person."
