Since I joined Go Daddy a few months ago, I am focused on understanding the business and the current tech stack.
Recently we made some good progress with Node.js and we are starting to invest more on it, as a result we just open sourced 2 projects built on top of Node.js: our node Cluster Service and our High Availability Redis Client.
Both projects are now on GitHub.com:
If feels really good to contribute back to the community and share some of our work. I got to say it has been super easy to open source projects at Go Daddy, zero bureaucracy :-)
GitHub client for Mac now supports GitHub Enterprise accounts, nice addition :-)
Integrating Yahoo Mail with Dropbox
We’ve implemented four major use cases:
- Seamless Single Sign On
- Save attachments directly to Dropbox (no Local Storage needed)
- Share files from your Dropbox account
- Attach files larger than 25MB.
This was one of my last projects at Yahoo, we have been working with the Dropbox team for about 2 months and it was really great to build this feature with them. It puts Yahoo Mail inline with the market trend of cloud related integrations, Gmail has Google Drive and
Hotmail Outlook.com has SkyDrive.
Git is amazing, there is the world before and after Git, at Yahoo we use Subversion and we also have GitHub Enterprise as an option for your Version Control System.
I gotta say that it is great to be able to use an Internal GitHub, it makes a lot of things easier. If you use Sublime Text as your main Editor, there is a ton of Git Plugins available and one that I recently started to use is called gitGutter (there are versions for Vim and Emacs too).
What this little plugin does is very simple and yet clever, when you are working in a File, it tracks your changes in realtime with little icons on the left column. This is an easy way to see what you are effectively changing on that file.
It is really worth the try.
PS: to see the nice color coding you will need to edit you Theme file to add the color pattern to it.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.(via dudup)
