The log/event processing pipeline you can’t have - apenwarr – one of the best distributed event/log data collection stories I have read. Avery Pennarun, the author of the above article also gave a talk at USENIX about – The Math behind Project Scheduling, Bug Tracking, and Triage

Interesting bit of software: patchbay - connect anything – is a free web service you can use to implement things like static site hosting, file sharing, cross-platform notifications, webhooks handling, smart home event routing, IoT reporting, job queues, chat systems, bots, etc, all completely serverless and requiring no account creation or authentication. Most implementations need nothing but curl and simple bash snippets. The implementation is in a single Go file.
