Geek Reading June 4, 2015

Fairly slow news day, so today we have an odd selection of articles. Every job has its issues, but we tend to overlook some due to salary or benefits. DaedTech takes an interesting look at this in his post, “Career Advancement for the Low Price of Your Soul”. Martin Fowler talks about how microservices may not be a great idea for your application, so why not go monolith first? Metric Sparrow has a great post on statistics and confidence metrics, by flipping the measurement. Instead of 95% confidence, what if you said there is a 5% chance that these results are bullshit.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
