CheckIO - online game for Python and JavaScript coders Coding for SSDs – Part 1: Introduction and Table of Contents | Code Capsule Introduction I want to make solid-state drives (SSDs) the optimal storage solution for my key-value store project. For that reason, I had to make sure I fully understood how SSDs work, so that I can optimize my hash table implementation to suit their internal characteristics. There is a lot of incomplete and contradictory information out there, and finding trustworthy information about SSDs was not an easy task. I had to do some substantial reading to find the proper publications and benchmarks in order to convince myself that, if I had to be coding for SSDs, I would know what I was doing. Then I figured that since I had done all the research, it would be useful to share the conclusions I had reached. The most remarkable contribution is Part 6, a summary of the whole “Coding for SSDs” article series, that I am sure programmers who are in a rush will appreciate. My only regret is not to have produced any code of my own to prove that the access patterns I recommend are actually the best.

How To Learn Hacking Copyright © 2014 Eric S. Raymond The “hacking” we'll be talking about in this document is exploratory programming in an open-source environment. If you think “hacking” has anything to do with computer crime or security breaking and came here to learn that, you can go away now. There's nothing for you here. Hacking is primarily a style of programming, and following the recommendations in this document can be an effective way to acquire general-purpose programming skills. Note that one can be doing hacking without being a hacker. Hacking doesn't have enough formal apparatus to be a full-fledged methodology in the way the term is used in software engineering, but it does have some characteristics that tend to set it apart from other styles of programming. Hacking is done on open source. The hacking style has been closely associated with the technical tradition of the Unix operating system Recently it has become evident that hacking blends well with the “agile programming” style.
