Geek Reading June 10, 2016 #1125

Leading our day is a post from Kent Beck about mastering programming. It is more of an outline than a full post, but it still has a ton of excellent information. At Ayende @ Rahien we have a great series of posts regarding the “guts n’ glory” of database internals. Today’s installment talks about the problems with some file formats when you want to search for data. If you have any interest in this area, I highly recommend that you pay attention to that series. Meteor Engineering gives us an interesting post about MongoDB not returning all matching documents for a query. This is really not an issue that is specific to MongoDB, it is highly possible that non-ACID databases or even odd clustering situations can yield the same results.

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