Fabric8: An Open Source Microservices Platform

Microservices are the wave of the future for Internet technology, partly because they can be tucked out of the way on the “edges” of the public network. Managing microservices is key to their use.

The Video Screening Room
This conference presentation by James Strachan at Devoxx 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium, does a nice job explaining how to create microservices on Fabric8. Strachan is well-known in the open source world as the creator of Apache Camel and Apache Groovy.

The main point I get from this video is that Fabric8 takes the pain out of cloud development. It just works. No wasted time configuring or troubleshooting web services.
If you’re interested in this topic, others involved with Fabric8 include Claus Ibsen and Roland Hub.
The post Fabric8: An Open Source Microservices Platform appeared first on FOSS Force.

Firebug lives on in Firefox DevTools

As you might have heard already, Firebug has been discontinued as a separate Firefox add-on.
The reason for this huge change is Electrolysis, Mozilla’s project name for a redesign of Firefox architecture to improve responsiveness, stability, and security. Electrolysis’s multiprocess architecture makes it possible for Firefox to run its user interface (things like the address bar, the tabs and menus) in one process while the content (websites) runs in other processes. With multiprocess architecture, if a website crashes, it doesn’t also crash the whole browser.
Unfortunately, Firebug wasn’t designed with multiprocess in mind, and making it work in this new scenario would have required an extremely difficult and costly rewrite. The Firebug Working Group agreed they didn’t have enough resources to implement such a massive architectural change. Additionally, Firefox’s built-in developer tools have been gaining speed, so it made sense to base the next version of Firebug on these tools instead.
The decision

Flock guns for Slack with its ‘chat operating system’

Slack came from nowhere to be one of the leaders of the collaboration market in just two years. But being a leader means other people are keen to take a share of your business and team messenger application Flock is the latest to be eyeing up Slack’s market. Today Flock is launching a development platform, FlockOS. It describes this as a chat operating system, that allows developers to build customized apps, bots and integrations. These can either be used within their own organizations, or published on the Flock Appstore, making them available for all Flock users. “Messaging and collaboration platforms… [Continue Reading]

Written Memories: Understanding Deriving and Extending the LSTM

When I was first introduced to Long Short-Term Memory networks (LSTMs), it was hard to look past their complexity. I didn’t understand why they were designed they way they were designed, just that they worked. It turns out that LSTMs can be understood, and that, despite their superficial complexity, LSTMs are actually based on a couple incredibly simple, even beautiful, insights into neural networks. This post is what I wish I had when first learning about recurrent neural networks (RNNs).
In this post, we do a few things:
We’ll define and describe RNNs generally, focusing on the limitations of vanilla RNNs that led to the development of the LSTM.
We’ll describe the intuitions behind the LSTM architecture, which will enable us to build up to and derive the LSTM. Along the way we will derive the GRU. We’ll also derive a pseudo LSTM, which we’ll see is better in principle and

Amazon’s EC2 Container Service adds support for Windows Containers

 With the launch of Windows Server 2016 three months ago, Microsoft gave its users the ability to use the Docker engine to run containers on Windows server. This meant developers could now package their Windows executables into containers and run them on Windows Server (though obviously not on Linux machines), using the same Docker engine and commands they were already used to. Today, AWS… Read More
