Hick’s Law, Ruby, JavaScript, GitHub, and More

More Code Newsletter

The seventh issue of the More Code Newsletter just went out. Here’s a run down of some of the articles that were included in this issue:

  • Redefining Hick’s Law ran on Smashing Magazine earlier this month. The law originally refers to the time it takes a person to make a decision based on a number of choices s/he has. This article takes the law and attempts to improve upon it in the context of web design.
  • Is Ruby Interpreted or Compiled? is a good read especially for those of you that have an interest in programming languages. This results in this article surprised me.
  • How Key-Based Caching Works is an article published by 37signals explaining the algorithm for their caching mechanism in the next version of Basecamp.

As always, check out the newsletter for additional resources and articles.
