Starting our day, we get an interesting launch from Microsoft, their new Planner tool. It is not meant to replace Project, but it does look similar to tools like Trello. It is part of Office 365 which means many people will have access to it, giving it a very simple entry into the market. Adrien Magnus gives us an interesting post on using Amazon autoscaling with stateful applications. Given how many enterprise applications seem to be heading in this direction, it is becoming more important to understand. On the Flying Frog Blog, we have an excellent perspective on the disadvantages of purely functional programming. The post is not a rant like many of its kind, it is a fair look at what can happen when you go purely functional.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
