GitHub’s Scientist puts Ruby rewrites to the test

InfoWorld - Thu, 02/04/2016 - 06:00

GitHub this week began offering a 1.0 version of Scientist, a Ruby library that helps developers rewrite critical code.

In a blog post, GitHub engineer Jesse Toth talked about the need to replace or rewrite part of a system and how GitHub has had many systems that scaled far beyond their original design. Eventually a large component of the application has to be redone, and Scientist was built to help test production data and behavior to ensure correctness.

"It works by creating a lightweight abstraction called an experiment around the code that is to be replaced," Toth said. "The original code -- the control -- is delegated to by the experiment abstraction, and its result is returned by the experiment. The rewritten code is added as a candidate to be tried by the experiment at execution time."

Lastly, one ingredient that I have met regularly in similar supplements, Bacopa Monnieri, well known for its ability to enhance cognition, its anti-oxidant benefits, and increased cerebral blood flow and regulation of serotonin release.One of their main claims is that the supplement has been developed in an FDA Licensed Lab which you need to understand does not mean that the supplement is FDA approved as Congifocus is not a drug.As mentioned, these are great benefits, and I am sure there are plenty more which the ingredients are currently being studied for but it's essential to remember that when it comes to natural supplements there is no guarantee that they will be effective for everyone.Of course, it's always a good idea to check with your doctor regarding the safety of taking herbal supplements like Congifocus, as it may also have the potential to interfere with any medications you may be taking.
