@joshuapsteele I highly highly highly recommend Designing Data Intensive Applications by Martin Kleppman too. Probably the most helpful software book I've ever read.

@JMaxB @rcrackley @toddgrotenhuis thanks guys!

@frostedechoes @toddgrotenhuis I feel like this blep is her whole personality.

@frostedechoes @garciabuxton @JMaxB I'm glad to hear this resonated with you all. @ReaderJohn agreed. And I think it's showing that terminology from the French revolution isn't the most helpful way to think about people.

@dejus My wife and I are former Disneyland passholders, and are finally going to visit OC again next week after 2.5 years away. The freeways in this post brought back many memories.
