Refactored #129: “World of WarCAP”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • MongoDB. The wrong choice for your website, but thankfully at least it’s “Web Scale”.
    • Chris rants. Hard.
    • Postgres has “inexact” numerics. Today Chris learned.
    • NewSQL lets you pretend to break the CAP Theorem for your ACID RDBMS.
  • Frank has a bone to pick with Blizzards implementation of Private Auras.
    • Good intentions with poor implementations, still suck.
  • The guys fight about balancing Waterfall and Agile. (I know, the W-word, ick, amirite?)
  • … and much more!
