News & Other Happenings Al (tool/app) [CGR] https://github.com/alnutile/cli_skel great command line starter library for PHP with a focus on testing, CI and code quality NK: How Can We Optimize AI for the Greatest Good, Instead of Profit? https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608049/how-can-we-optimize-ai-for-the-greatest-good-instead-of-profit Al: PHPArchitect - June 2017 Protocol Buffers by Christopher Mancini https://github.com/christophermancini/protobuf-php-performance NK: Laravel’s Dependency Injection Container in Depth https://davejamesmiller.com/2017/06/15/laravel-illuminate-container-in-depth Deep Dive Tech Radar https://www.thoughtworks.com/radar Theme, microservice and machine learning Techniques Decoupling secret management from source code they did mention HashiCorp recently Legacy in a box I am always impressed when I have that experience on a site and realize how much it makes sense for most sites Progressive Web Applications Prototyping with InVision and Sketch even as a non designer this stuff can be important to get an idea across Conversationally aware API context aware API I was thinking about this the other day in Slack for getting a stack -- api around this Platform engineering product teams. but not a devops team Social code analysis enriches our understanding of the code quality by overlaying a developer's behavior with the structural analysis of the code We get this out of PHP http://www.phpmetrics.org/ and the social side that is interesting though CI Theater Sadly, many developers simply set up a CI server and falsely assume they are "doing CI" when in reality they miss out on all the benefits. Common failure modes include: running CI against a shared mainline but with infrequent commits, so integration isn't really continuous; running a build with poor test coverage; allowing the build to stay red for long periods; or running CI against feature branches which results in continuous isolation. The ensuing "CI theatre" might make people feel good, but would fail any credible CI certification test. Enterprise-wide integration test environments contract testing decoupling deployment from release focus on mean time to recovery testing in production. spec-based codegen not making code from these tools "Swagger/RAML" till the robots take over Tools Airflow [read more] is a tool to programmatically create, schedule and monitor data pipeline Cake and Fake more new and good tools coming out of MS but this time for .NET Serverless Framework man do I wish I had more time https://serverless.com/ Amazon Rekognition Claudia Claudia makes it easy to deploy Node.js projects to AWS Lambda and API Gateway. It automates all the error-prone deployment and configuration tasks, and sets everything up the way JavaScript developers expect out of the box InSpec looks really interesting long term info about servers Molecule Ansilbe role testing!!!! Spaemacs could be interesting SpaCy NLP Processor Spinnaker Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence. Testinfra too much manual qa right now for me Testinfra aims to be a Serverspec equivalent in Python and is written as a plugin to the Pytest test engine. Yarn
