What did I learn this week (2021) - 18

  1. Zanzibar: Google’s Consistent, Global Authorization System. Zanzibar scales to trillions of access control lists (ACL) and millions of authN requests per second. Airbnb's Himeji and Ory/Keto are based on this.
  2. PowerDNS is a DNS server program, written in C++ and licensed under the GPL. It was founded by Bert Hubert in 1999
  3. Read one thought provoking article by Bert Hubert. Learned that Philips is a dutch company.
  4. Learned the use of spoiler by watching a youtube video. HN link about how engines work put me in to this.
  5. Math.round() in js round towards positive infinity. e.g.: -102.5 is -101 instead of -103.
  6. Learned about Cognitive biases and Principles.
  7. Learned about the history of couchbase and couchdb.
