Join host Ken Rimple and co-host Sujan Kapadia on this week’s TechChat Tuesday, where they bring a veritable smorgasbord of articles to the table. Docker, Maven, security breaches, spatial indexing with CockroachDB, and much more.
- Drumroll… Philly ETE Conference is back for 2021, and Alan Kay is our first keynote! We’ll be virtual again this year – get your Early Bird tickets before February 1, 2020 for only $70.
- Structuring Dockerfiles by GitHub user hexops and Tini, a “tiny but valid init for containers”
- Google service outage affecting Gmail, YouTube, Google Docs, and more Google services: authentication system failed due to internal storage quota related problem for all “services requiring users to log in.”
- Highly orchestrated “supply chain” attacks: privileged networking hardware, backdoors, “innocent” traffic, stealing signing certificates… scary stuff.
- CentOS is dead. Long live Rocky Linux?
- MIT Technology Review says: Facebook is now too powerful.
- The new Maven (speed) Daemon: super fast multi-core Maven daemon process for insanely quick builds.
- Spatial indexing: R-trees, quad-trees, horizontal scaling, Google S2, and PostGIS with CockroachDB.
- The future of cloud-native API Gateways
- It’s easy to get started with machine learning and make stuff happen – and here are some TinyML microcontrollers
- Shout out to Cesium and their Santa tracker!
- This is really cool too – Cesium is providing real 3D geospatial data to the Unreal gaming engine, working with Nvidia and Microsoft.
