Twitter can actually be a useful tool for tech-minded learners to keep abreast of interesting trends, development tips, and new releases. Pixafy asked our own developers which Twitter accounts they find essential and received a wide range of responses, from accounts that are informative, to inspirational, to just plain fun!

Cache plugin for Pico CMS If you use the Pico CMS for a mostly static blog, like I do, there is no need to parse the markdown files and render the twig templates on every request. Therefore I made the Pico Cache plugin. I did some testing and it turns out that the cache plugin speeds up the page pretty well. With one user at a time, the average response time was 315ms without cache and 10ms with cache enabled. (97% less time) Having 100 concurrent users, the average response time without cache was 14640ms and with cache 267ms. (98% less time) I repeated this tests 1000 times on a fairly old macbook, so the actual values are not that convincing, but rather the response time savings in percentage. Android SQLite Database and ContentProvider SQLite is an Open Source database. SQLite supports standard relational database features like SQL syntax, transactions and prepared statements. The database requires limited memory at runtime (approx. 250 KByte) which makes it a good candidate from being embedded into other runtimes. SQLite supports the data types TEXT (similar to String in Java), INTEGER (similar to long in Java) and REAL (similar to double in Java). All other types must be converted into one of these fields before getting saved in the database. SQLite itself does not validate if the types written to the columns are actually of the defined type, e.g. you can write an integer into a string column and vice versa.

That is, while I agree almost wholly with Mr. Feather’s1 choices, I tend to think that his choices are design-oriented2 and/or philosophical. In no way, do I disparage that approach, instead I think that there is room for another list that is more technical in nature, but the question remains, where to go next?
