Look at the solutions, in all the different languages, and compare. Not just for speed, but the design. Take a good look.
Perhaps: Well the ocean temperature dropped enough, but turns out the local increase in salinity due to the cloud whitening machine spraying salt in to the air has killed off the entire Great Barrier Reef. Oops.
OK, I'm not Randall Monroe, but here we go -
There is about 120 million tons of salt in a single cubic mile of seawater. A very conservative estimate of the volume of seawater around the Great Barrier Reef is 8,000 cubic miles.
That's nearly a trillion tons of salt.
If we dropped a BILLION TONS of salt over that area, it wouldn't change the water's salinity - by even a rounding error.
You think a db can serve just one app, apparently. My current db serves hundreds, no way they can all be installed there. Another serves the corporate dwh. Installing apps on that one will make me do horrible things to you. Don't make me, bro!
Where I come from, having many applications accessing the same database directly is a disaster for maintainability. Not that it's good for everything, but 3-tier is about more than just security.
The orgs I work for have rather higher security requirements than garden variety stuff so I doubt I'd ever be able to put the service layer on the same box as a database, but for smaller, purely internal applications I totally would.
Anyway my point is, aside from some very specific things (like doing nested set for hierarchical data) why use a 3GL to put non-relational logic in SQL statements at all, when you're already supposed to have a layer on top of that where all your business logic and units tests are, in a language already suited to it?
I know. Unit tests, what are those.
And Lilium claims that its electric battery "consumes around 90 percent less energy than drone-style aircraft"
I'm confused. Aren't the batteries supposed to supply energy?
Yes, the theatres, museums and restaurants in your shithole of city are better than those in New York, Chicago and Washington combined.
Meh. I'd take a short commute any day of the week over those things.
Going out to the really nice places, you keep that for a treat anyway otherwise they get boring. No need to live next to them.
They got Colin Moriarty a couple of weeks ago at Kinda Funny Games too. Trump's election has produced a SJW hysteria where even conventional conservative views are no longer tolerated anywhere in the tech/entertainment industry in particular (or Silicon Valley/Southern California in general). Everyone not fully embracing the SJW agenda is being purged from their jobs. This poor guy got fired just for participating in sex roleplay that the SJW's don't like.
I honestly wish people would stop all the "SJW" crap when anyone who isn't an obvious Bible-thumper does something stupid.
Our developers receive an ultrabook that is rather powerful but not really adapted for development (no admin rights, small storage capacity, restrictive security rules, etc.).
What's the Best Working Environment For a Developer? Clearly not where you're working now.
"As horrible as each of these stories is, there is nothing that shows that Mr. Cadden did something that the government can link to the death of that person."
There are many example of cases where a corporation kills people, but, magically, no one person is found guilty of murder, when it was clearly murder.
Oh, I guess it's nobody, because it was done in the context of a business!
We have to solve that problem first. And the question doesn't change just because you add "with robots" or "with technology".
