This is the new blog for my company, RestlessDev. In it you’ll find random musings about business and technology, Silicon Valley culture and the life inside a small software company,
To start off I’ve imported a few older articles from my previous blog (which has since been taken offline) about a project I did called CodaServer. Obviously it hasn’t quite taken off as I originally envisioned, but I still think it’s interesting from a technology perspective.
In rereading these old articles I’m impressed by two things:
- How little development has changed since then, and how a lot of the things CodaServer was meant to address are still problems.
- How little these problems seem to matter. I may have misjudged others’ frustration levels just a little bit.
It was still a fun project to do as it taught me a lot. It was the first time I got to design a language and an interpretter for that language, and I had to put together a server platform for it as well. It even had a little client application not unlike the MySQL client!
Anyway, it’s good to be back.
