I’ve been away from this blog for far longer than I hoped. I’ve got plenty of content queued up though, so in the next few days I should start to get my postings back in order. Rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated; of my gainful employment less so. That, clearly, has been taking up some time, but I’m getting into my groove now.
A small conciliatory nugget that regular readers of this blog might find interesting: a trademark Robinson monster post on Cloudera’s blog describing how to build a simple distributed queue with Apache ZooKeeper.
More on ZooKeeper and our usual distributed systems programming to follow.
