Daily Wrap Up – January 3, 2023 (#001)

Let’s start something new in 2023! Every day, I consume a lot of media created by smart people. Media such as blog posts, videos, articles, and podcasts. I share a subset of those via links in places like Twitter and LinkedIn. I’ll continue doing that, but also want to centralize and “own” a bit more of where I share. So, at the end of each work day (Pacific Time), I’ll publish a new “daily wrap up” post which includes more of the best things I consumed that day. If you want to automatically receive it, you can subscribe via RSS or email (below).

On to today’s links …

[article] Google Publishes Technique for AI Language Model Self-Improvement. Lots of AI hype out there, but pay attention to some of the fundamental improvements happening out there.

[blog] You Can Use Both Features and Benefits in Your Developer Marketing. My friend Adam does a good job explaining what good developer marketing can look like.

[blog] Data augmentation with BigQuery and Google Knowledge Graph. I thought I knew most (all?) of the Google Cloud services, but I just came across this new one last month. It has billions of entries that you can search.

[blog] “Supercloud” RIP. I’m not a believer in the idea that you’re better off creating some sort of cloud-agnostic franken-stack that somehow lets you use the best of cloud. Some have done it, and even done it well, but for most, it’s a waste of time and a distraction.

[blog] You Want Modules, Not Microservices. Pragmatic look at what really matters when architecting your system.

[blog] Accelerating Model Deployment using Transfer Learning and Vertex AI. Detailed example that touches on Tensorflow, Vertex, and more.

[blog] 17 Compelling Reasons To Start Ditching TypeScript Now. I rarely come across people griping about TypeScript—every OTHER language? sure!—so this post stood out to me.

[article] 2023 could be the year of public cloud repatriation. I just don’t see it. Some workloads? Sure. But major re-investments in on-premises data centers and self-managed software? Not by most who are looking to lead their industries.
