May 24, 2013 - 5 minute read - Comments - gsocplan9golangGoblin

Greetings everyone! With the GSoC proposal reviews coming to a close and the start of the GSoC period I thought it would be a good idea to make a blog post about my proposed project in order to discuss and clarify a few things. In this year’s Google Summer of Code(GSoC) I have submitted a proposal with the Plan9 operating system. I have proposed the rewrite of some of plan9’s userland tools in Google’s fairly new Go-lang.

Scheme? Functional Programming? Why?

Apr 25, 2013 - 3 minute read - Comments - chickenvimscm

Studying functional programming is an opportunity to greatly broaden your horizons, discover a whole new way to represent programs, to approach problems and reach solutions while thinking about languages. Programming in a functional language is pretty much fundamentally similar to programming in any other type of language (like logic programming), it represents programs and algorithms through distinct forms of abstraction and gives you a new toolset with which to solve programming problems.

Single file VCS

Jan 28, 2013 - 2 minute read - Comments - vcsrcs

It is no secret I like version control systems(VCS). As most SysAdmins i believe that pretty much everything should be versioned, any file that we tinker with must always be backed up and versioned somewhere. I am pretty sure that by now you maintain a lot of stuff in modern vcs like Git repos (or whatever floats your boat), the point is you already use version control. However as you might have guessed even though systems like Git sound (and for certain situations ARE awesome) they tend to not work well for a SysAdmin’s purposes, especially when talking about configurations.
