I wanted to play around with FoundationDB a bit more and building a network block device (NBD) backend seemed like a good fit for that. Do not use this in production, unless you like data loss, kernel crashes and you don't mind if your house burns down. If you're interested in a more serious implementation,…

The Race to Save the Axolotl | JSTOR Daily

The axolotl, or Ambystoma mexicanum, is the ultimate survivalist: When an axolotl loses a leg, tail, or a bit of its heart, the body part regrows and nary a scar remains. But the hardy creature is on the brink of extinction. The axolotl is also a conservation paradox: The iconic creature is Mexico’s national symbol,…

Union Types in Flow & Reason

Union types are powerful yet often overlooked. At work, I’ve been using Flow which thankfully supports union types. But as I’ve refactored more of our code to use union types, I’ve noticed that our bundle size has been steadily increasing! In this post, we’re going to explore why that’s the case. We’ll start with a…
