`hishtory` is a better shell history

It stores your shell history in context (what directory you ran the command in, whether it succeeded or failed, how long it took, etc). This is all stored locally and end-to-end encrypted for syncing to to all your other computers. All of this is easily queryable via the hishtory CLI. This means from your laptop, you can easily find that complex bash pipeline you wrote on your server, and see the context in which you ran it.

Thirteen years of Go

Russ Cox, for the Go team:

Today we celebrate the thirteenth birthday of the Go open source release. The Gopher is a teenager!

It’s been an eventful year for Go. The most significant event was the release of Go 1.18 in March, which brought many improvements but most notably Go workspaces, fuzzing, and generics.

He goes on to describe many of the other notable features and events of the past year and closes with a glance into Go’s future:

In Go’s 14th year, we’ll keep working to make Go the best environment for software engineering at scale. We plan to focus particularly on supply chain security, improved compatibility, and structured logging, all of which have been linked already in this post. And there will be plenty of other improvements as well, including profile-guided optimization.

Debugging Go

Natalie & Ian welcome Liran Haimovitch & Tiago Queiroz to the show for a discussion focused on debugging Go programs. They cover good & bad debugging practices, the difficulty of debugging in the cloud, the value of errors logs & metrics, the practice of debugging in production (or not) & much more!

A configuration management system for Pets, not Cattle

This is for people who need to administer a handful of machines, all fairly different from each other and all Very Important. Those systems are not Cattle! They’re actually a bit more than Pets. They’re almost Family. For example: a laptop, workstation, and that personal tiny server in Sweden. They are all named after something dear.

Liz Rice and I spoke about pets & cattle recently on The Changelog. I asked her, “from your perspective, are the people still doing it the old-school pets way?”

This tool is a great example of Pets-style administration being alive and well.

4 years of progress on the Go runtime

Michael Knyszek:

Since our last blog post about the Go GC in 2018 the Go GC, and the Go runtime more broadly, has been steadily improving. We’ve tackled some large projects, motivated by real-world Go programs and real challenges facing Go users. Let’s catch you up on the highlights!

Lots of invisible changes/improvements, but Michael focuses in on a new knob that he’s encouraging gophers to play with: the soft memory limit

Engineering interview tips & tricks

In this episode, we will be exploring interviewing as a Software Engineer. Tips, tricks, and gotchas, as well as potentially some interviewing horror stories and red flags to avoid at all costs. We’re joined by Emma Draper, Engineering Manager at the New York Times based in Arizona, and Kate Jonas, goes by Jonas, Technical Enablement Manager at Datadog based in Denver.
