2019-03-28 Thursday - TensorFlow-2.0.0-alpha (TF 2.0 Alpha)

Today I spotted Cassie Kozyrkov's article on Hackernoon (she's Chief Decision Scientist at Google, Inc) :

Here are some of the relevant 2.0 documentation resources
    • $ pip install tensorflow==2.0.0-alpha0

35 videos from the TensorFlow Dev Summit 2019 (March 6th and 7th at the Google Event Center in Sunnyvale, CA.), touching specifically on TF 2.0, are available here:

I also took a moment to upgrade to the recent Python 3.7.3 release (from 3.7.2)

2019-03-12 Tuesday - Researching Knative

My research notes on Knative:
"Kubernetes-based platform to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads."

Video Presentations/Overviews:

What is Knative?
(8 minutes)
"Knative is a new and exciting open source platform released as a collaborative effort by IBM, Google, Lyft, and many more. But what exactly does Knative do and how does it make a developer's life easier? Sai Vennam is back to explain the basics of Knative, showing how Knative provides developers with the building blocks for serverless platforms to run on Kubernetes."

(6 minutes)

KubeCon 2018, Knative: Scaling From 0 to Infinity - Joseph Burnett & Mark Chmarny, Google
(32 minutes)
"Knative Serving builds on Kubernetes and Istio to provide request driven compute that can scale to 0. It supports a variety of pluggable scaling strategies and tools for managing concurrency and trade-offs between cost and latency. This presentation reviews the challenges of designing and building a system that can rapidly scale serverless workloads to 1000's of pods. And scaling to and from 0 when idle. It presents the scaling capabilities and extension points of Knative Serving and how to configure it to take advantage of both horizontal and vertical scaling. And the concurrency controls to configure Knative Serving as a single-threaded function framework or a multi-threaded application framework (or something in-between)."

2019-03-04 Monday - Interesting 2018 Talks and Articles

A great list of top DevOps Articles from 2018

And a list of some very interesting 2018 talks curated here

For example, this talk in particular is very interesting:

QCon New York 2018: Design Microservice Architectures the Right Way
"Michael Bryzek highlights specific key decisions that very directly impact the quality and maintainability of a microservice architecture, covering infrastructure, continuous deployment, communication, event streaming, language choice and more, all to ensure that teams and systems remain productive and scale."
