Continuous Delivery for Machine Learning
Automating the end-to-end lifecycle of Machine Learning applications. Machine Learning applications are becoming popular in our industry, however the process for developing, deploying, and continuously improving them is more complex compared to more traditional software, such as a web service or a mobile application. They are subject to change in three axis: the code itself, the model, and the data. Their behaviour is often complex and hard to predict, and they are harder to test, harder to explain, and harder to improve. Continuous Delivery for Machine Learning (CD4ML) is the discipline of bringing Continuous Delivery principles and practices to Machine Learning applications.
Google Engineering Practices Documentation
Google has many generalized engineering practices that cover all languages and all projects. These documents represent our collective experience of various best practices that we have developed over time. It is possible that open source projects or other organizations would benefit from this knowledge, so we work to make it available publicly when possible.

Hello! Umi UI
Umi UI 这个大坑，今年总算还是踩了。其实去年还是前年就想做了，但这件事听起来太前沿，和业务关系不大，而且有很大的不确定性，所以优先级始终不高。而今年要在提效上发力，需要有一些可能会带来巨大变化的事情，于是被提上日程。然后经过一个多月的开发，Umi UI 的第一个版本终于上了。

MongoDB 是时下最受欢迎的数据库之一，许多企业和开发者都将其作为自己的解决方案。但在近日，macOS 平台的开源包管理系统 Homebrew 宣布 Homebrew-core 公式将移除 MongoDB 支持。在过去的一年时间内，包括红帽、英国卫报等在内的多家知名企业也都选择了移除 MongoDB。原因何在？
TypeScript vs ReasonML – A Comparison
Finished! Porting a 75,000 line native iOS app to Flutter
No matter how seductive SwiftUI or Jetpack Compose appear to be, a good cross-platform mobile solution is what most companies want. At least, that’s my experience. And, after building a drop-in replacement for a largish native iOS app, my experience is that Flutter is it. 另附：SwiftUI: A new player in UI frameworks.
What Is Infrastructure as Code? How It Works, Best Practices, Tutorials
Trends like cloud computing revolutionized—and improved—the way organizations design, develop, and maintain their IT infrastructure. One of the critical components of this trend is called “infrastructure as code,” and it’s what we’re going to talk about today.
Our journey to type checking 4 million lines of Python
Dropbox is a big user of Python. It’s our most widely used language both for backend services and the desktop client app (we are also heavy users of Go, TypeScript, and Rust). At our scale—millions of lines of Python—the dynamic typing in Python made code needlessly hard to understand and started to seriously impact productivity. To mitigate this, we have been gradually migrating our code to static type checking using mypy, likely the most popular standalone type checker for Python. (Mypy is an open source project, and the core team is employed by Dropbox.)
Giving Lens New Reading Capabilities in Google Go
In order for Lens to be able to help the greatest number of people, we needed to create a special version that can work on even the most basic smartphones. To make these reading features work, the Google Go version of Lens needs to be able to capture high quality images on a wide variety of devices, then identify the text, understand its structure, translate and overlay it in context, and finally, read it out loud.
The state of machine learning in financial services
The financial services industry has often been at the forefront of using new technology to solve business problems. It’s no surprise that many firms in this sector are embracing machine learning, especially now that increased compute power, network connectivity, and cloud infrastructure are cheaper and more accessible. This post will detail five important machine learning use cases that are currently providing value within financial services organizations.

Refactoring made easy with IntelliCode!
Have you ever found yourself refactoring your code and making the same or similar changes in multiple locations? Maybe you thought about making a regular expression so you could search and replace, but the effort to do that was too great? Eventually you probably resigned yourself to the time-intensive, error prone task of going through the code manually.
Apple Just Shipped Web Components to Production and You Probably Missed It
Apple announced the release of the new beta Apple Music Web Client, giving Apple Music customers the ability to listen to their favorite music from the web instead of only through an installed native app. I was following the conversation on Hacker News, and many were excited to see Apple embracing the web and bringing parity to other music apps like Spotify that have had rich web experiences since the early days. That Apple still cares deeply about the web was encouraging and exciting for many to see. 另附：Firefox 69 — a tale of Resize Observer, microtasks, CSS, and DevTools.
The Most Popular Programming Languages of 2019
Programming languages are a fascinating topic: There are thousands of languages in existence today, and new ones emerge all the time. Every year, we analyze data from a number of sources to understand today’s programming language landscape: Which languages are engineers using most often today? Which ones would they prefer to use, given the choice? Which ones are employers most likely to request when hiring developers?
How to learn D3.js
So, you want to create amazing data visualizations on the web and you keep hearing about D3.js. But what is D3.js, and how can you learn it? Let’s start with the question: What is D3? While it might seem like D3.js is an all-encompassing framework, it’s really just a collection of small modules. Here are all of the modules: each is visualized as a circle - larger circles are modules with larger file sizes.

Go 1.13 Release Notes
Most of its changes are in the implementation of the toolchain, runtime, and libraries. As always, the release maintains the Go 1 promise of compatibility. We expect almost all Go programs to continue to compile and run as before. As of Go 1.13, the go command by default downloads and authenticates modules using the Go module mirror and Go checksum database run by Google.
Why Adobe XD is better than Sketch
Although this article leans more towards Adobe XD, all opinions of UI/UX software generally comes down to personal preference, I mean, let’s be honest - they all pretty much do the same thing, right? Plus, most of them can communicate with each other these days too.

What Is a Tech Company?
At first glance, WeWork and Peloton, which both released their S-1s in recent weeks, don’t have much in common: one company rents empty buildings and converts them into office space, and the other sells home fitness equipment and streaming classes. Both, though, have prompted the same question: is this a tech company? Of course, it is fair to ask, “What isn’t a tech company?” Surely that is the endpoint of software eating the world; I think, though, to classify a company as a tech company because it utilizes software is just as unhelpful today as it would have been decades ago.

RPA 18 年进化史
2012 年之前，RPA 概念还不存在。6 年之后，RPA赛道上就诞生了 70 亿美元估值的公司。这个赛道的增长之快令人瞠目。头部玩家 Blue Prism 已上市，另一家头部公司 Uipath 从 10 亿美元到 70 亿美元的成长速度则刷新了 toB 企业的增速。2017年之前，国内还少有人听说“RPA”这一名词。仅仅一年半之后，RPA就成了资本市场的小风口，迅速升温。对标70亿美元估值的UiPath，几乎所有 RPA 厂商都在讲 RPA + AI 的故事——背后是一个RPA 迈向能够更大范围替代（或辅助）人类员工的愿景。在与UiBot合并后，来也科技无疑是最接近这个资本故事的。 从AI技术起家，新增国内最大的RPA社区支持，手握3500万美元融资，来也科技要怎么做好“中国版UiPath ”？
