When the architecture department is housed in the ugliest building on campus, something’s gone wrong.

When I heard that Berkeley’s architecture department was housed in agreeably the ugliest building on campus, I just about cried from laughter. If anything, this makes Berkeley look like an institution that endorses stupid irony. Another example: All new students at Berkeley are forced to go through an orientation website which doesn’t even function, yet Berkeley supposedly offers a top notch CS education. Is that not weird?

One million HTTP RPS without load balancing is easy


Especially poignant is the reduced architectural complexity that an application can reap if its performance requirement can be satisfied by a single server. You probably still want at least two servers for resilience, but even after accounting for resilience, your architectural complexity will likely remain simpler than with hundreds of instances. But the simplified system architecture and cost advantage of high-performance options deserve some time in the sun.

Founder Challenges with Startup Development Teams and CTOs


Architecture All startups will make a lot of changes and scale the product as they move along. This means that early software architecture can sometimes not work as well as the startup moves forward. On the other hand, sometimes architectures are very poorly done and causes significant problems every step of the way. If the CTO/team has made some bad technical choices early such as the wrong architecture, every dollar you spend will be partially wasted going forward.
