Gossip much? Use cases and bad practices for gossip protocols

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
My previous few posts has talked about specific algorithms for gossip protocols, specifically: HyParView and Plumtrees. They dealt with the technical behavior of the system, the process in which we are sending data over the cluster to all the nodes. In this post, I want to talk a bit about what kind of messages we are going to send in such a system. The obvious one is to try to keep the entire state of the system up to date using gossip. So whenever we make a change, we gossip about it to the entire network, and we are able
to get to an eventually consistent system in which all nodes have roughly the same data. There is one problem with that, you now have a lot of nodes with the same data on them. At some point, that stop making sense. Usually gossip is used when you have a large group of servers, and just keep all the data on all the nodes is not a good idea unless your data set is very small. So you don’t do that.  Gossip is usually used to disseminate a small data set, one that can fit comfortably inside a single machine...(Read whole news on source site)

Reusing Validation Messages in AngularJS

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
One of the many new features in AngularJS 1.3 is the ability to reuse validation messages. When displaying validation messages, you may find that you often reuse very similar messages: “Class name must be entered.”  “Start date must be entered.”  “End date must be entered.” Wouldn’t it be nice if you could reuse error messages […]

A new Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server Features Timeline

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We are always working on ways to communicate more effectively with customers about what we have done, what people like and don’t like, what they want, what we’re planning, etc.  A year or so ago we added a Features Timeline page to our News section of as one step in that journey. The news section, for VS Online particularly, announces the new features that we’ve deployed each sprint.  The Features Timeline then maps those new features to the on-premises TFS release you can find them in.  Here’s an example snippet:
At the same time, it’s all backward looking – stuff we’ve already done and how you can get access to it.  The best forward looking vehicle we have is UserVoice.  It’s great for submitting suggestions and voting on others but trickier to get a clear picture of the things we are planning/working on.  Many of the things we do are in UserVoice suggestions but some aren’t. Today we updated our Features Timeline page with a new “Features under development” section.  The purpose of this section is to give you insight into some of the things we are...(Read whole news on source site)
