Procedural Programming: It’s Back? It Never Went Away – Kevlin Henney [ACCU 2018] – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/09

If you haven’t been in the software development arena for the last 50 years, then watch this and learn all “modern” stuff has been around for ages:

  • agile
  • structured programming
  • software engeneering
  • encapsulation
  • unit testing
  • microservices
  • multi-threading paradigms
  • coordination versus computation
  • and more

Most if it comes from the era of Algol, make, AWK and the famous Structured Programming book (which is not about procedures, but about control flow).

So watch Procedural Programming: It’s Back? It Never Went Away – Kevlin Henney [ACCU 2018] – YouTube

Then read [WayBack] ISBN 9780122005503 – Structured Programming (A.P.I.C. studies in data processing, no. 8)

When a site creates way too many cookies, you get a “Bad Request – Request Too Long”

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/09

I a while ago, I had this error:

Bad Request – Request Too Long


HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

It happened because over time, Microsoft had managed to store 100+ cookies data locally, making the request some 8k in size. Which they could not handle.

Bad Request - Request Too Long HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

Bad Request – Request Too Long HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.
