14 hours 58 min ago

You've found your way to today's entry from the Linux command-line toys advent calendar. If this is your first visit to the series, you might be wondering what a command-line toy even is?

5 resolutions for open source project maintainers

15 hours 1 min ago

I'm generally not big on New Year's resolutions. I have no problem with self-improvement, of course, but I tend to anchor around other parts of the calendar. Even so, there's something about taking down this year's free calendar and replacing it with next year's that inspires some introspection.

In 2017, I resolved to not share articles on social media until I'd read them. I've kept to that pretty well, and I'd like to think it has made me a better citizen of the internet. For 2019, I'm thinking about resolutions to make me a better open source software maintainer.

An introduction to Kubeflow

Tuesday 11th of December 2018 08:01:00 AM

Model construction and training are just a small part of supporting machine learning (ML) workflows. Other things you need to address include porting your data to an accessible format and location; data cleaning and feature engineering; analyzing your trained models; managing model versioning; scalably serving your trained models; and avoiding training/serving skew. This is particularly the case when the workflows need to be portable and consistently repeatable and have many moving parts that need to be integrated.

When Linux required installation parties

Monday 10th of December 2018 08:02:00 AM

I studied math in college. Back then, ordinarily, math students didn't have access to the computer lab; pen and paper were all we needed to do our work. But for my one required programming class, I got access to the college computer lab.

It was running SunOS with remote X terminals (this was circa 1996). I immediately fell in love with Unix. I fell in love with the command line, X Windows, the utilities—all of it.

How to get started in AI

Monday 10th of December 2018 08:00:00 AM

I've both asked and been asked about the best way to learn more about artificial intelligence (AI). What should I read? What should I watch? I'll get to that. But, first, it's useful to break down this question, given that AI covers a lot of territory.

One important distinction to draw is between the research side of AI and the applied side. Cassie Kozyrkov of Google drew this distinction in a talk at the recent O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference in London, and it's a good one.

Optimizing Kubernetes resource allocation in production

Sunday 9th of December 2018 08:00:00 AM

My first day with Kubernetes involved dockerizing an application and deploying it to a production cluster. I was migrating one of Buffer's highest throughput (and low-risk) endpoints out of a monolithic application. This particular endpoint was causing growing pains and would occasionally impact other, higher priority traffic.

Is open source wealth distribution fair?

Friday 7th of December 2018 08:00:00 AM

If wealth is the abundance of valuable possessions, open source has a wealth of software. While no one “owns” open source, some are better than others at converting this communal wealth to personal wealth.

Many open source project maintainers who produce free open source software do not have a model for deriving income from the assets they have created. However, companies that use open source software to enhance their products and services convert this valuable asset into income.
