Ann Lewis discusses how MoveOn architects and scales an ecosystem of custom tools that power political organizing work like rapid response mobilizations, vote programs, and data-driven campaigns.
Jessica Tai discusses the challenges scaling to hundreds of services, how to simplify APIs, the trade-offs in API design, and how to test and operate flexible aggregator APIs and service blocks.
In this podcast Shane Hastie, spoke to Anders Wallgren of CloudBees about the human side of software development, ways to improve collaboration and why the future is in features.
To create a truly diverse culture, we need to have inclusion throughout the whole lifecycle of an employee’s career journey. Leaders need to foster a psychologically safe inclusive environment to allow diversity and diversity of thought to exist. They need to grow people to move them out and continuously get new people in to shake things up, to maintain diversity and inclusion.
In this article, authors discuss how to use the combination of Deep Java Learning (DJL), Apache Spark v3, and NVIDIA GPU computing to simplify deep learning pipelines while improving performance and reducing costs. They also show the performance comparison of this solution with GPU vs CPU hardware, using Amazon EMR and NVIDIA RAPIDS Accelerator.
Lightbend today announced the launch of Akka Serverless open beta, with general availability later this year. Akka Serverless is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that aims at cloud-native application development. It is built on Lightbend's Akka Platform technology and delivered via a model similar to existing serverless offerings.
Corporate agile often represents an improvement over what went before but falls short on delivering the high performance management want and quality engineering environment developers dream of. The backlog becomes tyranny. Could OKRs - objectives and key results - reawaken the radical side of agile? Or do OKRs represent a return to command and control?
According to John Egan, the incident management process is meant to be a cycle of not just the response, but also the account of root cause and the updating of internal processes and practices across the industry. Lowering the barrier to reporting incidents, holding effective incident review meetings using blameless postmortems, and giving everyone access to postmortems is what he advises.
The PDCA (plan-do-check-act) framework can be used to outline the performance, availability, and monitoring to enable teams to ensure performant and highly available applications. These include infrastructure design and setup, application architecture and design, coding, performance testing, and application monitoring.
Combining enhancements to .NET Core and EF Core, ASP.NET Core 6 has gained the ability to handle arbitrarily large JSON files via asynchronous streaming and the IAsyncEnumerable interface.
Amazon recently announced support for global clusters on DocumentDB, the document-oriented database compatible with MongoDB.
In a study conducted in May 2021 of 133 US companies, 29% of the respondents said that team spirit and working relationships have suffered from working remotely, with 11% leaving or planning to leave because the company culture has become toxic.
Toxic cultures result in demotivated and disengaged employees and have a significant negative impact on organizational outcomes.
At the recent International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR), research teams from several tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, IBM, Facebook, and Amazon, presented nearly 250 papers out of a total of 860 on a wide variety of AI topics related to deep learning.
Advances in large-scale, distributed software systems are changing the game for software engineering. As an industry, we are quick to adopt practices that improve flexibility and improve feature velocity. If we can move quickly, can we do so without breaking things? Chaos Engineering practices can be used to navigate complexity and build more reliable systems.
