    http://eng.kaching.com/2010/05/sam-sig-applied-lean-startup-ideas.html Abstract of Talk: kaChing is an online platform that connects investors with outstanding investment managers. We are a technology driven company, which has adopted lean methodologies from the start, and has achieved a 5-minute commit-to-production cycle. Continuous deployment is a way of life and is integral to our engineering culture. In this talk, we will present our system's architecture and discuss our service oriented platform dubbed kawala (in the process of being open sourced on http://code.google.com/p/kawala). We will describe the mechanics of an automated release from check-in to production: clean build with full regression testing in less than 3 minutes, packaging and deployment by automatically redirecting traffic using ZooKeeper for coordination, health checks and immune system to monitor the release. Finally, we will talk about planned evolutions and the next challenges we face in our infrastructure.

      • Instanciators Design Doc Review

        27:09

        from Wealthfront / Added

        An instantiator is meant to instantiate objects from string representation of its constructor arguments. In addition, instantiators can produce the list of string representations from an object instance. Instantiator instantitor = ...; AddUser query = instantiator.newInstance( AddUser.class, "Pascal", "26", "pascal@kaching.com"); List parameters = instantitor.fromInstance( query); The parameters list would be ["Pascal", "26", "pascal@kaching.com"]. To achieve this, the instantiation framework will require minimal input from the library user and most uses cases should work out of the box with no specific configuration.

                      Upon request I made an effort and tried to narrate this video, where we show how the 3d-anaglyph technique we used for our film 'the 3D-Machine' works. Using flash and after effects and photoshop we developed a system that worked real well for our film to make a 2d animation in anaglyph-3D
