Jess Frazelle works on Kubernetes full-time. Previously she maintained Docker, a software containerization platform used by thousands of teams.

Backstory

I was already familiar with Docker, but I opened my first pull request on July 9th, 2014. It was to fix some duplicate IP tables rules. After joining the company and contributing more, I became a maintainer.

Even though I’m no longer at Docker, I still work on open source full time for Kubernetes—it’s awesome! l contribute in my free time, too, but it’s super nice to be paid for something I would do anyways. Then I get to spend 100 percent of my time on code being released to the public.

Daily tasks

First get through the pertinent stuff via uber-sophisticated-yet-awful email filters, the labels “github/ping” and “mailing lists/participating”:

Triage and prioritize over email
Tend to GitHub mentions
Respond to mailing list discussions with new replies that need my attention
Then get on with it:

Char2Wav: End-To-End Speech Synthesis

We present Char2Wav, an end-to-end model for speech synthesis. Char2Wav has two components: a reader and a neural vocoder. The reader is an encoder-decoder model with attention. The encoder is a bidirectional recurrent neural network that accepts text or phonemes as inputs, while the decoder is a recurrent neural network (RNN) with attention that produces vocoder acoustic features. Neural vocoder refers to a conditional extension of SampleRNN which generates raw waveform samples from intermediate representations. Unlike traditional models for speech synthesis, Char2Wav learns to produce audio directly from text.

The Only Thing, Historically, That’s Curbed Inequality: Catastrophe

ColdWetDog writes: The Atlantic has an interesting article on how societies have decreased economic equality. From the report: “Calls to make America great again hark back to a time when income inequality receded even as the economy boomed and the middle class expanded. Yet it is all too easy to forget just how deeply this newfound equality was rooted in the cataclysm of the world wars. The pressures of total war became a uniquely powerful catalyst of equalizing reform, spurring unionization, extensions of voting rights, and the creation of the welfare state. During and after wartime, aggressive government intervention in the private sector and disruptions to capital holdings wiped out upper-class wealth and funneled resources to workers; even in countries that escaped physical devastation and crippling inflation, marginal tax rates surged upward. Concentrated for the most part between 1914 and 1945, this ‘Great Compression’ (as economists call it) of inequality

Windows 10 Virtual Desktop Enhancer: a first look

Windows 10 finally brought virtual desktops to the PC with its Task View feature, but although the system is easy to use, it’s a little underpowered. Windows 10 Virtual Desktop Enhancer is an open-source portable application which extends Task View with some small but welcome extras. The first addition you’ll notice is a system tray icon displaying the number of the current desktop. It’s a handy extra way to keep track of where you are, and left-clicking it launches the regular Task View for switching. Desktops can have a name (“Work”, “Web”, “Games”, whatever you like), another way to help… [Continue Reading]
