Moving From CouchDB To MySQL

DiogoBiazus Re:Native JSON fields (283 comments)

You can also use the hstore contrib module in the current PostgreSQL versions, which has a gem (https://github.com/softa/activerecord-postgres-hstore) for ActiveRecord and Heroku support (at least in some database plans). Seriously, PostgreSQL is the best Not-Quite-So-SQL DBMS out there.

Ask Slashdot: Making JavaScript Tolerable For a Dyed-in-the-Wool C/C++/Java Guy?

DiogoBiazus Before going any further ... (575 comments)

Understand the Javascript language, because it is a simple, yet powerfull language on its own. So, before digging deeper into libraries and tools, take some time to read the javascript garden, which will give you the dirty parts: http://bonsaiden.github.com/JavaScript-Garden/ And, as previous posters already said, the Crockford site which will give you good insight into good practices and useful patterns: http://www.crockford.com/

Exoplanets Spotted Orbiting Dead Star

DiogoBiazus Re:5 billion years from now (76 comments)

That is perfectly okay. They will land a job in a newspaper somewhere...and wear their underwear outside their pants!

As a former resident of an exoplanet I must protest. This is an stereotype created by pop culture, not all aliens wear their underwear outside their pants, you insensitive clod!

Moving Between Countries?

DiogoBiazus I'm from Brazil, also want to move to Canada (450 comments)

I'm been thinking for some time about moving to Canada. Though, I'm a little afraid of the Brazilian reputation outside Brazil (don't think it's very good). I'm mainly a database architect (work with PostgreSQL), but also a *nix developer. Does someone here has something to say about experiences working with or hiring people from Brazil?
