Be Careful with Table Driven Tests and t.Parallel()

We Gophers, love table-driven-tests, it makes our unittesting structured, and makes it easy to add different test cases with ease.

Let’s create our table driven test, for convenience, I chose to use t.Log as the test function. Notice that we don't have any assertion in this test, it is not needed to for the demonstration.

func TestTLog(t *testing.T) {

Setting up netboot.xyz with an EdgeRouter

This document covers how to setup netboot.xyz, a service that provides iPXE-based installation and live boot of a bunch of operating systems, on a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter.

Assumptions

I've made a few assumptions throughout this document that will probably be different for your setup:

Who pays when startup employees keep their equity?

JD Maturen, 2016/07/05, San Francisco, CA

As has been much discussed, stock options as used today are not a practical or reliable way of compensating employees of fast growing startups. With an often high strike price, a large tax burden on execution due to AMT, and a 90 day execution window after leaving the company many share options are left unexecuted.

There have been a variety of proposed modifications to how equity is distributed to address these issues for individual employees. However, there hasn't been much discussion of how these modifications will change overall ownership dynamics of startups. In this post we'll dive into the situation as it stands today where there is very near 100% equity loss when employees leave companies pre-exit and then we'll look at what would happen if there were instead a 0% loss rate.

What we'll see is that employees gain nearly 3-fold, while both founders and investors – particularly early investors – get dilute

git copr alias
View copr.md

I'd like to share some git aliases that you might find useful if you handle pull requests from others.

Add these to your ~/.gitconfig in the [alias] section:

copr = "!f() { git fetch -fu origin refs/pull/$1/head:pr-$1; git checkout pr-$1; } ; f"
prunepr = "!git for-each-ref refs/heads/pr-* --format='%(refname:short)' | while read ref ; do git branch -D $ref ; done"

Now you can "git copr #{pr_number}" (check out pull request is the mnemonic) and it will pull down the PR in a local branch of pr-#{pr_number} and check it out for you. To do it right, you must pronounce it "Copper" with a James Cagney gangster accent.

Internet Scale Services Checklist

A checklist for designing and developing internet scale services, inspired by James Hamilton's 2007 paper "On Desgining and Deploying Internet-Scale Services."

Basic tenets

  • Does the design expect failures to happen regularly and handle them gracefully?
  • Have we kept things as simple as possible?
You can’t perform that action at this time.
