Intro

Does any of this ring familiar to you:

“I don’t think that I am making any contribution to the overall growth of the organization.”

“It’s not only about the growth of the organization, it’s about your growth. Both go hand in hand. These tasks might seem trivial to you but they are very important so that you get comfortable.”

Ever heard these words from your manager?

How We Learned to Stop Guessing and Love Low P-Values

“I don’t think it’s quite fair to condemn the whole program because of a single slip up, sir.” Famous last words from Kubrick’s 1964 classic Dr. Strangelove, as a forlorn general realizes his negligence is about to lead to nuclear apocalypse, may feel relatable to any engineer who has immediately regretted pushing the big red “release” button only to later find themselves putting out fires late into the night. Sometimes the answer is simply “write more tests!” or “write better tests!”,

Secondary Index Migration in YugabyteDB

Introduction

YugabyteDB has a great feature in strongly consistent secondary indexes. I have been asked a few times now about how to modify existing indexes. These can range from adding another column to the index or adding another column to the INCLUDE clause. The big question at the end of the day is: how to do this without having to take downtime on the indexes? In this blog post, using the Yugabyte CQL API we will look at how to switch a live running application from using one index to another without a performance hit during the transition,

A Yugabyte Software Engineering Intern’s Journey

Editor’s note: Yugabyte is hiring!

The Call to Adventure

My distributed SQL story begins late in 2019, back at my previous internship at a Norwegian startup called Cognite. While I was there, my team lead would always talk about how awesome distributed databases are, and also about his side project where he was building a small distributed SQL database from scratch in Rust (check it out here).

Building Resilient GraphQL Apps and Scaling Them to 1M Subscriptions

GraphQL provides a query language for APIs, giving UX developers autonomy over querying APIs and the database.

The advantages of using GraphQL for UX applications are well understood. GraphQL clients can retrieve only the data needed in the UI application. GraphQL provides a strong type system that avoids manual code parsing and data filtering that takes up precious processing cycles when rendering the UI to users. Additionally, GraphQL increases UX development’s velocity, and the feedback cycles needed for designing API responses are minimized.
