One point of interest for Tesla is their projected YoY growth rate. Elon Musk has stated 40-50% YoY. Some analysts will point out that Tesla is unlikely to be the > 50% main player because 0% of anybody has ever been the main player for any length of time that would matter. In 2018 ~80M […]
It's not an accident that Elon, Zuck, Bezos, Gates, Sergi, Larry Page & Elison are all developers. When a Dev runs the co. they tend to have a great handle on where things are, and when things can be achieved. The further away you move from that, the more *hope* plays a factor. — DevElevation […]

Hmm, I am trying to figure out what this would mean without looking it up. Domains I know as sites, but I would think that Tesla.com would be the only domain. Subdomains would be departments within sites, so subdomain driven design might make more sense. How else can Domains be interpreted? Domain Driven Design sounds […]
So I had this problem. I need to get 17++ variations of CSV files for price/inventory updates. Perfect place to make a parent class with most of the common functionality and child classes where each child overrides functions: loadCSVFile() //uniquely fetches inventory/price file from FTP, Email Attachment, SFTP, HTTP, etc. updateProducts() //parses files specific fields, […]
