Multi-Threading is Hard – Who do you trust?

יום חמישי, יוני 4, 2009

Something has been bothering me for quite some time and I am frankly not entirely sure what to do. I have been working on a multi-threaded server application for over a year and feel that I have a decent grasp on multi-threading. More importantly, I have learned to respect the complexity. So what is bothering me? Over the last few months I have encountered a number of blog posts that propose some solution with code that multi-threaded. The problem – It’s Wrong! Sometimes I send an email to the author, but for the most...

To blog or not to blog…

יום רביעי, יולי 4, 2007

Yesterday I attended the last day of the blog conference held this week. There have been numerous posts covering the event so I'm not going to go into what happened there. I do want to share my thoughts related to my writing on this blog however.
