Software Architect for ClassicCars.com

Working with a legacy codebase that is using ASP.Net (C#, WCF, MVC, WebForms) and MS-SQL and an existing API under node.js, with rabbitmq and mongodb.

Currently playing with the following technologies for the backend/infrastructure:

  • docker.io
  • etcd
  • nginx
  • node/express
  • PostgreSQL
  • RethinkDB

On the front end:

  • React
  • Fluxxor
  • Bootstrap

I absolutely love JavaScript as a language, and platforms that leverage it. MongoDB, RethinkDB, NodeJS/Express, Synchronet BBS, jQuery, Backbone, Knockout, React, etc.

I've also been following golang with great interest.

comment Which hashing algorithm is best for uniqueness and speed?
I am curious as to the intent of said hash. Depending on your needs, security is the opposite of speed. Fast means easier to brute force, while hashes such as scrypt work to the opposite. I've found that SHA512 is generally good enough, and depending on the settings scrypt can be overkill. Also, as always, one should salt one's hashes, and add random seed bytes into encrypted streams to ensure greater uniqueness.

comment Sync csv file using nodejs
It seems to me, what you probably want is a queue/stream from the server...

I still like to have separate functions below the logic (hoisting makes this possible).
