Daily Wrap Up – March 17, 2023 (#048)

Happy Friday. Today, I read a handful of great posts. Check out some insightful stuff about microservices, serverless, lowcode, and how to get un-frustrated (is that a word?) with your team.

[article] 6 Questions to Ask Yourself When You’re Frustrated with Your Team. Do you ever feel like your team is not clicking? Something’s off? I thought this was a good piece if you need a tune-up.

[blog] Why does everyone “suddenly” hate Single Page Apps? Here’s a guarantee for you. Something you’re obsessed with right now will be considered a “bad idea” in three years. It’s inevitable. As an individual, get good at learning how to learn. As a leader, build teams that are nimble and unafraid to adapt to changing circumstances.

[blog] Microservices Best Practices. Simple title to this post, but you’ll find some lengthy advice. Not every architecture should be oriented around microservices—most shouldn’t?—but this is helpful advice if you’re taking that route.

[blog] Build your first AppSheet app: how I built a food tracker. It’ll probably never be the “year of low code”, but tools like AppSheet definitely have a place at most any company. This is a excellent little walkthrough of building a simple data-driven app.

[blog] Serverless in 2023. Has “serverless” had its moment yet? I’m not sure. It’s still lurking as a powerful architecture that many don’t take advantage of.

[blog] BigQuery under the hood: Behind the serverless storage and query optimizations that supercharge performance. Check out this good deep-dive into one aspect of BigQuery and the technology (and tradeoffs) that go into running a high-performing, scalable data service.

[blog] An End to End Machine Learning Model Development Guide Using BigQuery ML. More BigQuery stuff. This analytics service offers a fairly straightforward way to create and execute machine learning models directly within the service.

[blog] Accelerating Ulta Beauty’s modernization with managed containerized microservices. Good case study that looks at fleet management of Kubernetes clusters.
