MoinJS: rapid JavaScript micro service development

If you’re into node.js and micro services you should check out MoinJS by Torben Hartmann. It’s a fairly young project that is basically an application server with everything you need:

  • a service registry
  • an event system with timeouts, filters and all the snazz
  • extensibility
  • and automatic code reload

Especially the latter will save you time and nerves 🙂

Combine Lego™ bricks and 3D printing for awesomeness

I wrote about the awesomeness of Lego™ before on this very blog. Someone had an even better idea:

  1. Create a 3D model of what you want to create
  2. Replace most of the geometry with Lego™ bricks
  3. Only print the necessary custom parts and leth those have Lego™ knobs at the right positions so that they can be firmly integrated with the Lego™ bricks.
  4. Save a ton of money AND time in the process 🙂

Luckily, there is a tool that will help you a lot with steps 2 and 3. A great idea! Watch their video:
