A few days ago I gave a talk at PyCon Belarus regarding advanced Redis structures.
Follwing projects are presented:
These are Python projects, but some of them (like bitmapist) have been ported to other languages.
Here's the list for this week:
There is a great presentation by Benedict Evans that explains why mobile is very important: Mobile, Context and Discovery.
In this presentation there is a graph that shows industry scale. Mobile networks lead with over 1 trillion dollars in revenue and are much bigger than anything else, such as online advertising.
WhatsApp is disrupting part of this industry (the SMS part, which globally has over $100bn in revenue). Facebook's current revenue can't even be visualized that well on this graph.
I am really fascinated by Facebook acquisition of WhatsApp for a whooping 16 billion USD in cash and stock [link].
The more interesting parts for me isn’t that much the price, but what WhatsApp has built with **only** 50 people (and only 32 engineers):
Never in human history was it possible for 50 people to create so much value (regardless if we think they are worth 16B).
In technology to touch the lives on millions and create a lot of value you don’t have to have a lot of people. You have to have the right people.
Here's the list for this week:
What we offer is an interesting and remote work where you'll work with some of the best people in the world.

There’s also article version on CNET here: What I learned from Steve Jobs.
I just released a forked version of vimroom which I call vim-zenroom. It enables you just to focus on the code or the text you are writing, without all the distractions!
It provides following features:
You can go into this using <leader>V (standard vimroom mapping) or <leader>z (in my vimrc).
New version: vim-zenroom2
Some other examples
Enter the Zone easier by just focusing on the code - and nothing else:
It's a lot more powerful than iA Writer and includes code syntax highlighting (for Markdown and reStructuredText):
