Daily Wrap Up – March 30, 2023 (#057)

More AI content today, but it’s a day that ends in “y.” But also find some fresh perspective on serverless computing, cross-platform app frameworks, and learning the right lessons from failure.

[blog] Generative AI will 5-10x developer productivity. You are COMPLETELY justified in being skeptical of generative AI given the graveyard of “next big things” that were hyped over the past decade, including the metaverse, web3, blockchain, edge computing, 5G, and so on. But this one? It’s genuinely different.

[blog] The Edge Of The Age Of AI. This post echoes some of Brian’s points from the previous link. We’re at the start of something that will change all our jobs in some way over the next three years.

[blog] The Solution Architect’s Guide to Serverless. Read this if you feel stuck on a 2017-era serverless mindset and want a refresh on what’s possible.

[blog] Build new generative AI powered search & conversational experiences with Gen App Builder. I’m looking forward to playing with this. For now, I’m just learning.

[blog] Flutter in 2023: strategy and roadmap. Very transparent look by this team. See their strategy doc, and then a link to a roadmap with specifics for this popular multi-platform app framework.

[article] Don’t Learn the Wrong Lessons from Failure. This article wasn’t what I thought it would be, but I still took something away from it. The main takeaway for me was to slow down and do thorough analysis of failures and don’t rush to a root cause.

[docs] Deploy a highly-available Kafka cluster on GKE. This is an OUTSTANDING guide that represents the best way to put a platform through its paces. Install, scale, test, etc.

[blog] Accelerate database modernization with Google Cloud Ready – AlloyDB validated partners. Database platforms need a great ecosystem to be truly successful. Here’s a post about new AlloyDB integrations.
