Redis 作者 Antirez 其人趣事:为什么 Redis 的默认端口是 6379?

Redis 由意大利人 Salvatore Sanfilippo(网名 Antirez) 开发。Antirez 不仅帅的不像实力派, 也非常有趣。他出生在非英语系国家,英语能力长期以来是一 个短板,他曾经专门为自己蹩脚的英语能力写过一篇博文《英语伤痛15年》,用自己的成长经历来鼓励那些非英语系的技 术开发者们努力攻克英语难关。

我们都知道 Redis 的默认端口是 6379,这个端口号也不 是随机选的,而是由手机键盘字母「MERZ」 的位置决定的。「MERZ」在 Antirez 的朋友 圈语言中是「愚蠢」的代名词,它源于意大利 广告女郎「Alessia Merz」在电视节目上说了一 堆愚蠢的话,想到这里我不禁开始感觉到Antirez 的朋友圈似乎有那么点... ...

不过Antirez出生于以女郎、黑手党、荷尔蒙和电影《西西里的美丽传说》闻名的西西里岛,所以也正常。

Antirez 生于1977年,在410天前发表了上述链接中有名的那篇 ;他下面的一段话确实是回归了编程的本质:其实也是我入行时候所想。关于这一点,值得去深思,值得花时间想清楚为什么我在做现在在做的事,尤其是如果缺乏热情的情况下。

那段话如下:

I write code in order to express myself, and I consider what I code an artifact, rather than just something useful to get things done. I would say that what I write is useful just as a side effect, but my first goal is to make something that is, in some way, beautiful. In essence, I would rather be remembered as a bad artist than a good programmer. Now I’m asked more and more, by the circumstances created by a project that became so important, to express myself less and to maintain the project more. And this is indeed exactly what Redis needs right now. But this is not what I want to do, and I stretched myself enough during the past years.
