Read more, think better
Hello again. We are back with some cool stuff, enjoy. ;)
Links of the week
“Nowadays, the word “hacker” is used negatively, portrayed by the media as villains who rob banks and spread ransomware. In this article, I’d like to go back to the term’s original meaning — bold enough to build something quickly, test the system’s boundaries, and learn from the failures. Putting experimentation and innovation at the front of the company and eventually embracing transformation and not running from it.“
“In this episode we take a deep dive into the chaos surrounding the new A.I. war between Microsoft and Google.“
“Your network is a collection of relationships, and relationships always work best when they’re built before you need them. Set a small goal, like meeting one new person each month, and slowly build your network up over time. Don’t make it your top priority, but don’t forget it either.“
“As we use GitOps methodology, having a CI job that will deploy the Istio mesh does not suit us. Instead we wanted to use Flux CD as for any other workload in our clusters. Flux is not just there to deploy but also to ensure that the cluster is synced with the source repository, there is a reconciliation process between our git repository and the cluster.“
This video’s storytelling is so cool!
“A tag is a metadata label associated with content. The tag name is also the id: two tags with the same name are the same tag. Tags appear in almost all large systems“
