I don’t usually like infographics, but this one nails it!
Too bad I couldn’t try it on one of our work projects just yet, as this requires PHPUnit 6+, while we are still on PHPUnit 5.7. But we’ll get there.

Software debugging is like finding the hay in the needle stack.
This is cool in so many different ways …
OK, this one is socially funny and statistically cool – Stack Overflow question on how to exit Vim editor was viewed over a million times in the last few years. Now, there’s a breakdown of all sorts of statistics about who gets stuck in Vim the most. It’s pretty amazing the kind of questions and answers one can ponder at when having access to a lot of statistical data.

Gay marriage: the database engineering perspective is a rather old article on how gay marriage (and other types of marriages) can affect technology, but somehow I missed it for all these years.
It’s interesting from a variety of perspectives – technical, social, and cultural. It’s also somewhat tongue in cheek, yet insightful and thought-provoking. Irrelevant of your views on the subject, I recommend this read. Where else will you find 14 database schema designs trying to solve the same problem.
The legal ramifications of what I’m about to describe are unguessable. I have no idea what rights a civil union like the ones which would be possible below would have, nor do I have any idea what kind of transhuman universe would require so complex a system. This is the marriage database schema to take us up to the thirty-first century, people.
If databases are that difficult to adjust, I can’t even imagine the effort needed for humans…
