5 interesting things (29/12/2021)

7 PyTest Features and Plugins That Will Save You Tons of Time– I read many tutorials and posts about PyTest and this is the first time I run into those flags (features 1-5) which I find very useful. As always – if you can use your superpowers to read the documentation directly.

Patterns for Authorization in Microservices – I find this post interesting since I currently face a similar problem of setting authorization and authentication architecture in the product I work on that can have complex access patterns such as a user can access multiple resources on different access levels owned by different organizations.

Database Indexing Anti-Patterns – I find this post slightly too high level. Yes, it state possible issues with indexing but a more effective post would be how to detect those anti-patterns on specific databases. E.g measure Mongo index usage on Mongo – https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/measure-index-use/


This link is part of this post as a periodic reminder to think and take care of those topics before they become issues.

How to safely think in systems. – “Effective systems thinking comes from the tension between model and reality, without a healthy balance you’ll always lose the plot.”. I’m not sure if this post should be in the parenting category or in the career \ professional \ management category.

How Improvised Stand-up Comedy Taught Me to Interview Better – “After all, questions in an interview are mostly a means for getting to know the candidate better, just as pulling words out of a hat is just the framework for a show.”. Great post that connects two domains that usually aren’t brought up together.
