For those not familiar with Build, it is an annual conference targeted at app developers for the Windows, Azure and other Microsoft platforms. In previous years, the event had only been held in the U.S. and was extremely well-attended by the developer community. The fact that seats to the Build conference in San Francisco last month sold out within an hour is probably the best testament to the popularity of the event.

Scriptable applications, including Pages, Keynote, Numbers, and the Finder, can already be automated using a variety of languages, including AppleScript, Objective-C, Perl, Python, and Ruby. With OS X Yosemite, application scripting support has been added to another popular language, JavaScript. JavaScript for Automation (JXA) extends the standard JavaScript environment provided by the JavaScriptCore framework with support for querying and controlling all of the scriptable applications running in OS X.

JXA scripts are supported at all layers of the system and can be invoked from the command-line, from the system-wide Script Menu, and can even be distributed as code-signed applications.

HTTP Archive + BigQuery = Web Performance Answers - igvita.com

Launched in late 2010, the project crawls over 300,000 most popular sites twice a month and records how the web is built: number and types of resources, size of each resource, whether the resources are compressed or marked as cacheable, times to render the page, time to first paint, and so on - you get the point. The HTTP Archive site itself provides a number interesting stats and aggregate trends, but the data on the site only scratches the surface of the kinds of questions you can ask! To satisfy your curiousity, all you need to do is download and import ~400GB of raw SQL/CSV data. Easy, right? Google BigQuery + HTTP Archive Well, good news, now you can satisfy your curiosity in minutes (or seconds, even).

Once the project is imported, expand the project in left navigation and you'll see a collection of tables for individual pages and request data for each run of the HTTP Archive crawler.

articles/nosql-intro.pdf

Our intention is to explain to a technical manager audience why NoSQL databases are important. We describe why relational databases have been so dominant and what forces have led to NoSQL cracking that dominance. We discuss the principal benefits of a NoSQL approach, but stress that relational databases still have a large role to play, thus our emphasis on polyglot persistence.
