GitHub - stewartsmith/libeatmydata: libeatmydata (slowly migrating from launchpad)
An LD_PRELOAD library that disables all forms of writing data safely to disk. fsync() becomes a NO-OP, O_SYNC is removed etc.

The idea is to use in testing to get faster test runs where real durability is not required.

DO NOT use libeatmydata on software where you care about what it stores. It's called lib***EAT-MY-DATA*** for a reason.

Farewell to fsync(): 10× faster database tests with Docker
You’re writing an application that talks to a database—PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB—and you need to write some tests. You want three things out of your tests: Realism: the closer your test setup is to production, the more likely you are to catch bugs with tests. Speed: Slow tests are expensive tests. Ease-of-use: You want running and writing tests to be easy, otherwise you’re less likely to do it. The problem is that interacting with a database is slow, so you want to avoid writing tes...

Smooth operators. Understanding Adobe Premiere's Warp Stabilizer. — Story & Heart Blog
Meet Jeremy. He's what we here at Story & Heart call a Harmonizer.  

In a sense, he conducts a digital orchestra of footage—an opera of data. He
arranges subtle nuances of color and audio and leads massive crescendoes of
data acquisition.

We asked Jeremy to spill some truth on one of his favorite editing
functions, the Premiere Pro's Warp Stabilizer. It can often be a complex
tool, even intimidating.

How I Start.
How I Start is a mix between a collection of development tutorials and The Setup. The purpose is to both fill a gap in tutorials and give a peek at how some of the top developers do their work.

Often tutorials and books are overly generic, leaving it up to the reader to wade through all the tools and styles available to a language on their own. These articles are meant for a user who is comfortable with a language in its REPL (if available) or building individual modules, but may not be comfortable taking the step to producing an application or library that is ready to be consumed by others or deployed to production.

Why Don't People Use Formal Methods? • Hillel Wayne
I saw this question on the Software Engineering Stack Exchange: What are the barriers that prevent widespread adoption of formal methods? The question was closed as opinion-based, and most of the answers were things like “its too expensive!!!” or “website isn’t airplane!!!” These are sorta kinda true but don’t explain very much. I wrote this to provide a larger historical picture of formal methods, why they’re actually so unused, and what we’re doing to make them used.
