On this date in 1887 mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan was born in Erode, Tamil Nadu, India. Ramanujan had nearly no formal training in mathematics and was largely self-taught until he was a teenager. As an adult his work quickly gained attention from other Indian mathematicians who spread his work to Europe. He independently proved several theorems in a number of mathematical subjects and also produced many new theorems. He moved to England in 1914 and continued to publish on a wide range of topics and much of his work has been widely influential for his unique approaches to even already established proofs.
National Mathematics Day: Remembering the genius Srinivasa Ramanujan!
Excellent point of view backed with data. I believe its a way of life. To inculcate this kind of lifestyle and values organically, would take a generation to live through it. The other possibility is to rebuild in an entirely new way after a calamity (as you indicated in the article). I personally like this way of life and was excited when you said “demanded that leadership change every few months” to keep the creativity and innovation intact.

Brace for the news this THUR (2/11/16). Whatever the outcome, it is set to be a milestone on the cosmic calendar. It has been 100 years since Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity that married Gravity to Space-Time. LIGO has measured the last of the predictions made by this theory, ie, the presence of ripples in space-time caused by rapidly spinning objects like pulsars, 2 star systems etc.. Detecting a gravitational wave is like noticing the Milky Way — which is about 100,000 light-years wide — has stretched or shrunk by the width of a pencil eraser.

Pros and Cons of modelling a ready only query system with Multiple databases vs Multiple schemas?
I have the following scenario where an SQL Server database (D1) is being replicated to D1_p (on-premise SQL Server). I have another on-premise oracle database (D2) being replicated to D2_p (on-premise SQL Server). I am trying to understand the pros and cons of setting up D1_p and D2_p on two separate DB servers vs a single SQL Server database and have 2 separate schemas on it. Would love to hear your thoughts on the same. Also please note that there is a constant sync happening in an asynchronous manner between (D1 and D1_p via SQL Log Shipping) and (D2 and D2_p via Golden Gate).
Happy Pi Day 2016.
Let’s spare a few moments for Ramanujams work on pi on this auspicious day! He gave a practical way of calculating “pi” using a ruler and compass only. It was quite an achievement of those times when people thought circles and spheres (involving pi) symbolized heaven and the descent of the spirit to the material plane. The squares and cubes symbolized the lifting up of material perfection to the divine. Pi is thought to have this transcending quality!
Containers are a form of lightweight virtualization that can hold all the application logic, and run as an isolated process with all the dependencies, libraries, and configuration files bundled into a single package that runs in the cloud. One such popular framework is Docker!
“Moon Shot” literally and figuratively. When XPrize partners with JJ Abrams, one can imagine the impact! A great documentary web series about people competing for Google’s Lunar XPRIZE. Simply Inspiring. Hope Morgan Freeman jumps on the wagon at some point in the space-time!

REDUCTIONISM is the most natural thing in the world to grasp. Its simply the belief that “a whole can be understood completely if you understand its parts, and the nature of their sum”. No one in her left brain could reject reductionism. -Douglas Hofstadter, GEB.
1. Loosely coupled service oriented arch with bounded contexts
2. Smaller services than my last SOA deployment
3. Be pragmatic about it. 🙂
4. Not one data model to rule them all. Do not use one DB for all services. Anti pattern
5. Ploygot persistence
