At Kaleidos, I’m surrounded by people who is always studying new languages, new frameworks. Functional programming has been the new guy in our office. Haskell, Clojure or Fruskis (!) were at our table, and conversations. Even in our Kosdem, some … Continue reading →
Let's play a word association game. When I say "stack overflow" what comes to mind? Is it Spolsky and Atwood's popular question and answer site? Do you imagine a toppling tower of buttermilk pancakes oozing with real Vermont maple syrup? Or do you think about the common catastrophic programming bug? Stack overflows are a real problem in a lot of code. Let's dig in a little bit to understand how and why they happen.
First we need to understand what the stack is and how it is used. A stack is a last-in-first-out data structure. You can 'put' something on top of it and 'pop' off the thing on top of the stack. Want to access something in the middle? Forget about it. You must keep popping off the top until you get there. Think of it like a stack of those delicous pancakes. If you want to add another pancake, the only place you can put it is on the top of the stack. Trying to pull a pancake from the middle of the stack would likely leave you with syrup-soaked pants, so when you take a pancake you must take it from the top.

Using The Option Type Effectively
In a previous blog post, craftsman Dave Torre showed how optional types can alleviate common problems with null values. Bulding on that post, we are going to dive deeper into the API of optional types.
For examples I will be using the
Option type provided in Rust, but everything
shown here can be accomplished in Java, Scala, Haskell, Swift, OCaml,
or any language that has a similar API for optional values.
Faster and lighter mobile web pages for Indonesia
By Google Webmaster Central (email@example.com) on 2015-04-30
We believe everyone should have fast and easy access to information online. However, many people still have slow and costly mobile connections. To speed up the experience of our users on slow connections, we recently launched streamlined search results. However, we wondered if we could also speed up the web pages themselves, so they don't load slowly or consume too much mobile data. So we’ve developed a way to optimize web pages to be faster and lighter, while preserving most of the relevant content.
In two weeks, we’re starting a field test in Indonesia to provide streamlined search results and optimized pages when the user searches on slow mobile connections, such as 2G. Our experiments show that optimized pages load four times faster than the original page and use 80% fewer bytes. As our users’ overall experience became faster, we saw a 50% increase in traffic to these optimized pages.
