Links roundup: 4

  • Flavio Ribeiro et al. have released components of the video processing workflow at the New York Times to the open source community.
  • Adam Conner-Simons describes Gitless, developed at MIT. The tool is intended as a gentler introduction to the Git mindset—no stashing required.
  • Phil Sturgeon makes a succinct comparison between REST- and RPC-based APIs. One isn't better than the other; they're just different.
