Three Devs and a Maybe

Weekly(ish) podcast on all things software development.

Macro vs. Micro Vision

In this weeks episode we start off by congratulating Mick on handing in his masters dissertation. We then move on to discuss decision trees, ordinal regression and genetic algorithms. Edd then mentions managing large tables in Postgres, MVCC, Fill factors and Vacuuming a table. From here we highlight an interesting JavaScript Unicode/New-Line length issue that occurred recently. Finally, we touch upon testing time-dependent processes in isolation, dreaded CRM integration and sign-up processes.

Corrections: Couple of mistakes by Edd; its’ MVCC not MVVC, and any character that can’t be represented using 8 bits in PHP will have a strlen > 1.
