What we're reading

  • Tiny wins (blog post)

    Why we like it: This classic post showcases real reactions from users to small, but impactful UI changes done on GitHub, Netflix, and Google Chrome over the years. Joel reflects on those and outlines strategies to prioritize low-effort, high-impact changes, and gives some ideas on how to source those tiny wins. A fantastic read!
  • How we built Instant Logs (blog post)

    Why we like it: Ben from Cloudflare describes the limitations of their logging architecture, and explains how they leveraged a smart technique called Reservoir Sampling to shard the logs efficiently. An insightful walkthrough on the kind of problems that appear at a sheer scale.
