Finds by @samoli

Ruby/Rails developer and designer in London.

If you're here for Happy Place app support, you can email me at sam@samoliver.com

Here are articles that I've read and found interesting, mostly from places like Hacker News and a collection of RSS feeds that I follow. It's mainly here for my own records but you're welcome to follow me.

I'm starring items I find in Google Reader (using Byline) and using ifttt to publish them to Tumblr. This way I can read and reblog articles on the tube (London underground) where there is no Internet connection.

You can also subscribe via email if you like

N.B I'm investigating why the full contents of the post are sometimes posted. They are intended to be links but sometimes the whole post comes through. Also I'd like a way to add a note to the post but since Google removed most of the useful features in reader, I'm not sure how I can do this.

"So, rather than using complex indirection involving function pointers, a macro infrastructure was used to generate multiple specialisations, allowing the compiler to optimise the code more effectively as a result of being able to integrate everything."
