What I like about Deezer compared to Spotify: They don’t do those A/B tests where only a small group of users receives new features. They just release them for everyone. In other words, they just added an option to the Audiobooks app to adjust the playback speed. I can finally listen to audiobooks in 1.4x or 1.6x speed now.

I am all for using a custom domain for email addresses. I mostly use @jlelse.de, but I can also be reached via email addresses with @janlukas.de, @jlelse.blog and a number of other domains. Recently I bought yet another domain, but now I’m questioning if that was really a good idea. Well, maybe I will still find a practical use for this domain.

Writing a SQL database from scratch in Go

Published on in 🔗 Links

Phil Eaton wrote a really cool article. He documented how he used Go to write a rudimentary SQL database including a CLI. It is very interesting to read how commands are parsed and analyzed. The whole thing probably has no practical use (there are already countless mature database systems), but it’s still exciting. I remembered some of the math lectures in the first semester about formal languages.
