“Perhaps the most important corollary of the law of accumulation is what is called the law of incremental improvement. This is really the law that explains how you move from wherever you are to the top of your field. This is the law that explains all great success in America, or anywhere else in the world. This law simply states that a person becomes good at his or her chosen field by improving incrementally, continuously, over a long period of time.”

Java consumer API Apache Kafka by Nishant Garg
“The consumer group name is unique and global across the Kafka cluster and any new consumers with an in-use consumer group name may cause ambiguous behavior in the system. When a new process is started with the existing consumer group name, Kafka triggers rebalance between the new and existing process threads for the consumer group. Post rebalance, some of the messages that are intended for a new process may go to an old process, causing unexpected results. To avoid this ambiguous behavior, any existing consumers should be shut down before starting new consumers for an existing consumer group name”

“Geeks -- as author Paul Glen refers to technology workers -- can be difficult to manage. Their work is often hard to understand. Their deliverables are always late. And they don't respond to traditional methods of command and control. If you want to successfully lead geeks, you'll need to reconsider much of what you already think about leadership. Whether you are leading a tech team for the first time or the fiftieth, this book is an essential resource.”

“If changes in the two variables have a high positive correlation, the company’s total exposure is very high; if they have a correlation of zero, the exposure is less but still quite large; if they have a high negative correlation, the exposure is quite low because a loss on one of the variables is likely to be offset by a gain on the other.”
