Around the Web - January 2016 - Website obesity crisis, AngularJS & Postgres

Website Obesity

  • Website obesity crisis : transcript of a talk (video can be seen too from the link) about webperformance, bloated websites and how fat sites become for almost no real value for end users. Long but funny and instructive. It makes you think on how complex, fat and bloated the web is nowadays, in terms of tooling, architecture, code and content.

AngularJS

Postgres

  • The most advanced opensource database of the world, ie Postgres for short, was released as 9.5 version (FR / EN) ; it brings the long expected "UPSERT" features, Row level security and some big-data features (improved index, faster sorts, connection to Hadoop/Cassandra via FDW, etc)
  • In French a deeper view of the 9.5 release (part 1, part 2, part 3) to better understand what contains this release.
