One that stood out was databases. In the media, one hears more and more about NoSQL databases like Cassandra, Dynamo & Firebase. Despite all that … Continue reading What engineering roles are most in demand at startups? →

SkySQL just blogged about a tool to schedule long running MySQL jobs, prevent too many queries from running simultaneously, and stores the results in tables. It even uses Gearman. You will note that the article says that it uses PAQU, which uses Shard-Query.
I think PAQU was created for two reasons. A) Shard-Query lacked support for fast aggregation of STDDEV and VARIANCE (this has been fixed), and B) their data set requires “cross-shard queries”. From what I can see though, their type of cross-shard queries can be solved using subqueries in the FROM clause using Shard-Query, instead of using a customized (forked) version of Shard-Query. It is unfortunate, because my recent improvements to Shard-Query have to be ported into PAQU by the PAQU authors.
I’d like to encourage you to look at Shard-Query if you need to run complex jobs in the background and get the results later. As a bonus, you …[Read more]

I joined as employee thirty-something, so running HR meant that I was more or less involved with hiring all of the 400 or so employees who joined after me. I knew pretty much everyone by name.

Apply for a job and don’t hear back, it’s nothing personal
In today’s market, there are hundreds of job applicants for every position. Sad to say, but that means things become a blur after a while. There’s less chance to sift each candidate and find out who they really are or what they really know. It’s more about keywords, and buzzwords if you must, to get your foot in the door.
