Comment Re:As if to echo your point (Score 1) 266

Incorrect. Message queues dont share IO state either. You would know that if you tried to pass back to proxy or api server. They cannot synchronize state and the best people have figured out is to pass a 'state token'. This doesn't work however because IO's central version of truth is where I/O meets and so when proxy sends state token, api server may have different state because they didn't synchronize since last update to api server. Or perhaps MQ has different stae from api server and thus rejects because it didn't synchronize. Yeah so... nothing like MQ my friend. Try to understand I/O before commenting like a monkey behind a typewriter

Showed this to Netflix once and they stated 'This fixes everything we are currently having issues with'. Apparently the entire industry has implemented API's in distributed architectures in such a way as to create architectural cross cutting concerns...

Employed developers make happy developers... and ones with far less time on their hands. Thus they dont spend their time on forums all day. Improve the highly exploited H1B program, make laws that protect employees for unlawful firing practices, etc etc. BUT... since this will NEVER happen, expect those comments to continue. Sorry.

Comment This requires rewriting alot of software (Score 1) 409

To automate all of services would require rewriting ALOT of software which in turn requires years of industry work. For example, I give talks at SpringOne, API World at have had Netflix and other state my work fixes alot of their issues. But they would have to rewrite their existing code... and they invested millions into it. Now regardless that the rewrite might only take a month or so, they want to get their investment back FIRST. So alot of these companies are not going to do that... regardless of the fact that they are LOSING money because they are not automating. Still, at least they are employing people and that makes me happy. To see some of my work on Shared IO state, see my videos from SpringOne on InfoQ (

Comment How much of Swift is based on Groovy? (Score 4, Interesting) 339

Its been commented on that Swift tutorials look IDENTICAL to Groovy tutorials to the point that you even use the same variable names in examples ( When created a Python to Swift converter, I responded 'wouldn't it have been easier to do a 'Swift to Groovy' converter??? To which developers replied, well naturally. So how much of Swift was inspired by Groovy? Both come from more high-end language and look and act almost identical.
