Polymath Engineer Weekly #13
It's Wednesday my dudes!
Links of the week
It’s always interesting for me to see how people are using Kubernetes in not so conventional ways.
“The C and C++ languages are notorious for the very large section of the map labeled here be dragons, or more formally, undefined behavior.
When undefined behavior is invoked, anything is possible. For example, a variable can be both true and false.”
Immutability is great feature in some types of workload. I would love to see PostgreSQL taking efforts in this path. It is exciting that one of its creators is calling for this too.
More of this subject on “Trucks, Tubes, and Truth“ down below.
“Once we start to look at objects as tuples of functions, we may be able to say something about the properties of objects, because category theory also has something to say about the properties of tuples (…)”
This is a long and well-written post. Although it is practically a sales pitch for XTDB, the reflections on this are very meaningful.
This will make you think about data and how it is affected by your domain.
To ship machine learning workloads in production it is not as simple as gluing some libraries in a python notebook. There are many layers and roles involved.
Book of the week
This is a foundational book on continuous delivery. Although it is a little bit dated, it is still a very relevant book. Check this out and you won’t regret.
Do you have any more links our community should read? Feel free to post them on the comments.
Have a nice week. 😉
