This, another article on The Next Platform, is pretty esoteric but it is also my idea of a fun investigation into computer architecture. Enjoy.
I’ve been thinking that I’ve been becoming technically well past my prime. Perhaps not. As an adjunct professor at WSU in computer science, I’d been worried about whether the Zoom infrastructure would be able to take on the load of all of us suddenly showing up to keep our education – and indeed much of our economy – infrastructure flowing. So, I did some research to find out how it is that they pulled it off and in the process got an article on the subject published. Here it is. Enjoy.
