From biztalk360:-

Out of the 2 important tricks we applied, one of the trick is agreeing on the standard date and time format string between the client and REST API.

Self-tuning Systems

From Where are the self-tuning systems?

In 2015, self-tuning systems mostly don’t exist. Every single piece of software still relies on magic numbers found empirically or pulled out of thin air, by developers or by users, possibly manually adjusted later in order to get closer to an acceptable security/ reliability/ performance balance.

function* powGenerator() {
  var result = Math.pow(yield "a", yield "b");
  return result;
}

var g = powGenerator();
log(g.next().value);
log(g.next(10).value);
log(g.next(2).value);
