It's Just a Tarball

  • Yet, container images are just tarballs
  • Yet Git's object model is pretty simple – content-addressed blobs (file-like), trees (folder-like), and commits that get stored in a .git/objects folder
  • Some git commands are still just shell scripts under the hood
  • Not to mention plaintext protocols. HTTP, SMTP, FTP, and Redis Serialization Protocol (RESP) are a few examples
  • Maybe one caveat is that nascent technology is often unnecessarily complex. Things are just getting pieced together – unoptimized workflows, artifacts leftover from failed experiments
  • Very inspiring read.

Coding Tests

  • Mock interview: Interviewer should present a question only.
