A new home

March 16, 2012

As much as wordpress has been really a good platform, zenmachine is not getting as much attention as my github repo for some time. Much of the things that I write of right now are so different that I’ve decided to put up a new blog at http://blog.7co.cc/ and stop writing on zemachine. I will try to keep the content up as much as I can but that’s it for this blog. xoxox

Testing Bottle and MongoDB

February 3, 2010

Seems like DSLs for web development are getting more solid in the python camp (alto I’m yet to see something like sinatra out of the box or something that spare me from too much CSS’ing).

Today I read about Bottle and Redis, and to keep things fresh, cooked up a PasteBin clone using Bottle and MongoDB. I may do it using Redis too, just to showcase the differences. It’s really easy to come up with prototypes using Bottle.

Treasure the past

Just a quick one: I’ve found code from my old repository, more than 10 years old. Uploaded it along with VideoDog to my github repository: http://github.com/gleicon/archive . Gotta love old stuff.

Github repo

October 29, 2009

I’m uploading almost all code from this blog to my repo at github: http://github.com/gleicon/zenmachine .

There’s some really ugly stuff, old ruby constructs, but all in all it’s been fun to review and update them. One of my top posts of all time, about text classification and ruby is getting a review and will be uploaded too.

Any code you want ? Questions ? Feel free to post them in comments.


link recap

May 7, 2009

Following up this old post, there is an presentation from MySQL Conf & Expo 2009 about using Memcached showing the basic usage pattern, which by the way is not using memcached as a database, asking if you can search inside it’s keys and so on.

Another presentation from Craiglist’s Jeremy Zawodny about using sphinx to index mysql data is there too.

Ezra Zygmuntowicz’ Nanite was presented at erlang factory (which I may or may not write about later) and seems like a perfect case of AMPQ and queue use (I got a pretty solid understanding of routing keys from it).
