Technology

In September I joined endjin a Technical Fellow (an entirely new branch in endjin’s career pathway to accommodate me – more on that later). I’ve has been involved with endjin since 2011, as an Associate, helping to deliver some of our most technically challenging projects (and if you go even further back, I attended Cambridge University with endjin co-founder […]


There’s been a little bit of a gap since my last Rx blog, I’ve been pretty busy with keeping up with Advent of Code in any spare time (and I’m sure there will be a blog along those lines at some point in the near future). But, for now, it’s time for a deep dive […]


In case you missed it… Here’s a link to my last blog on understanding Rx (luckily this blog has an internal buffer so if you’re just tuning in now, you’ve not missed your chance)! OnNext(Understanding of the Rx operators) Now one of the most exciting things about Rx is that it has its own implementation […]


Overflowing with dataflow part 2: TPL Dataflow

by Carmel Eve

Edit: In case you missed it! Here’s a link to part 1, a general overview of dataflow as a processing technique! The specific implementation of dataflow that I want to talk about is the TPL dataflow library. The task parallel library is a .NET library which aims to make parallel processing and concurrency simpler to […]


I’m very excited that Ian Griffiths has joined endjin as a “Technical Fellow”. This is a new career pathway branch we created especially for Ian, as he didn’t really fit into any of our existing roles; his skills and expertise exemplify a pathway that many software engineers desire, but few have the opportunity to achieve […]


Disclaimer: This is not an in-depth overview of encryption and data management, more a slice of the concepts I’ve come across as a relative newcomer to this world (i.e. I’m new, please forgive my relative ignorance). A brief introduction to hashing In order to talk about cryptography, we first need to understand hashing. In a […]


After four years of university, you’d think I’d have this whole research thing down. However, I must admit that in my somewhat limited university experience of writing essays (us scientists tended to prefer the Greek alphabet), most of my “research” was done after the fact. I would spend the last day before a deadline frantically […]


Over the last few week’s I’ve been catching up on my reading backlog and serendipity meant that I read Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action” which was published in 2009, shortly followed by Satya Nadella’s “Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft’s Soul and Imagine a Better Future […]


Digital Transformation is the buzzword of the moment; organisations are trying to reconfigure themselves to operate in the digital age. One of the key enablement strategies involves putting APIs at the heart of the organisation to centralise access to data, logic and value, while removing those traditional barriers that prevent collaboration between organisational silos. APIs […]
