Comments Mark Z's Letter to Shareholders in Ramblings with 0 comments on Thu Feb 09, 2012 1:00 pm
The following is the tried and over posted letter to the shareholders (or potential shareholders) of Facebook. I can tell you that I admire the company for taking a stand on their "corporate" culture. It stands to reason that if you are a publicly traded company that you will try and preserve the ways that "brought you here".

Mark's Letter to Shareholders

I wish that the company that I work for would do the least the systems team. As part of the systems team, if we embraced this type of idea where we can constantly "tweak" something for improvement, then we will never be satisfied or complacent with an idea and say that it good enough. Also it is not enough for one person to have this way of life, the entire team needs this mentality.

Believe it or not, my simple attempt at learning web python is just another way of embracing this culture to see if we can do better. As a Windows/SQL Server shop, this is not something that we do. We go into design meetings and dream up big ideas and write design document that never go anywhere!

Our path should be to get the idea in our head, find the critical points and just DO IT. There should be a discipline along the way but if we take small steps and constantly check along the way we can create great systems that people would actually use.

Just my 2cents for now.

Starting out with Python in Ramblings with 2 comments on Wed Feb 08, 2012 7:58 pm
Ok, this is my first blog post....ever! I have never posted a blog before or commented on one before. I am hoping that this will turn out to be a good thing to do but hopefully it won't bite me in the butt.

What I am hoping to gain from this is to learn how to create a basic python web page. I have tried to use google app engine but have had problems using it on my local PC (both at work and at home). I really want to use as it seems like the best version and quickest way to start a website. If anybody has any tips on this on frihost that would be great.

I hope to keep you abrest of my progress soon as I get my 5 posts (which appears to be a strange restriction but I am not the mayor here Smile

Best regards,
