Ask HN: How do you sell to governments and large organizations?


I've been seeing repeated mentions of early warning systems for a lot of diseases, but not too much technical development! I think I could hack something together that would be an interesting proof of concept and function as an effective early warning system, using my ML and Public Health background. Of course, I don't know who to directly sell to, its not like most businesses or consumers are interested in reducing disease burden, government folks seem interested though!

Ask HN: Have you ever chosen Postgres over Mongo and regretted it?


The past 2 years seem to have been the death knell for Mongo and the "NoSQL" hype, with Mongo moving toward SQL parity and SQL databases supporting JSON storage, like Postgres with JSONB.

At this point it seems that there are very few workloads for which Mongo is the best option compared to Postgres+JSONB. I'm wondering...

1) Have you ever chosen Postgres over Mongo, and regretted it? Why? Did you end up switching to Mongo? Was it better?

2) Can anyone name a use case where Mongo is clearly a better choice than Postgres+JSONB?

Ask HN: Have you shipped anything serious with a “serverless” architecture?


I've been watching the rise and maturing of AWS lambda and similar offerings with excitement. I've also shipped several microservices in both node and Java that are entirely serverless, making use of API gateway, lambda, dynamo db, sqs, kinesis, and others.

For the simple case, I found the experience to be great. Deployment was simple and made use of shell scripts and the excellent AWS CLI.

I've been hesitant to build anything serious with it tho. The primary concern has been visibility into the app. The app's operation can be quite opaque when deployed that way. Further exacerbating the issue, we've a few times lost Cloudwatch logs and other reporting due to both configuration issues and improper error handling, but these are things that would have been much easier to identify and diagnose on a real server.

Ask HN: What is the first thing you implement at a new company?


For job-hoppers and contractors. If you arrive at a company, what is the first thing you push for?

For instance, I usually implement a good feature-branch flow with branch pipelines and a strict merge-to-develop etiquette with mandatory merge requests. It makes my work easier and once the team is used to it, they also really like it. No more messy development branches.

I also request a small office stool next to my desk to make code reviews, three amigos and pair programming easier. It is a small thing but I noticed that people are more eager to discuss things if they have a place to sit.

Ask HN: Developers, how do you keep SSH and web URLs organized at work?


So I'm sure many of you have dozens of web application URLs across multiple development, QA, production environments and as many URLs for tools and SSH endpoints you use all the time.

My system for keeping all this organized is to sift through bash history and browser history and abortive attempts at keeping Excel spreadsheets or Evernote pages full of this stuff.

Does anyone have any pointers for tools they like to make this easier?

Thanks!

Ask HN: How do you manage your manager?


One of the things that is not taught in university or talked about enough in our industry is managing your manager. I am asking this because I was recently asked by my manager not to give talks in really difficult to get in industry events, despite of getting an acceptance. While I like the company I work for, it seems the un-preached way of managing the manager is to have a thick skin. How true is this? I'm also curious to know how you manage your manager?

Ask HN: Are you working on interesting technical problems?


I have been feeling disappointed that I haven't been able to use my computer science degree to it's full potential. Most of my work seems to be boring CRUD work where the challenge is gluing libraries together or figuring out business requirements. Actual interesting technical problems seems to be mostly wrapped in ready-made libraries / SaaS services.

Ask HN: How do you continuously monitor web logs for hack attempts?


what is the generally accepted best practice to be monitoring web logs for anomalous accesses ?

do you guys just throw cloudflare in front and forget about it ? Or do you have engineers who work like data scientists - eyeball the logs ?

I have heard suggestions of using a firewall - but I'm genuinely curious on how do security focus companies discover things like "oh, we got attacked by Bitcoin miners from North Korea". Are there sophisticated tools that do this for you.. or is there a generally accepted practice that has evolved for even regular engineers to do this ?

P.S. I'm personally more interested in an API-focused answer, but I guess the same thing applies for websites.
