Daily Wrap Up – April 24, 2023 (#074)

Traveled up to the Google Cloud mothership in Sunnyvale this afternoon for some meetings this week, but still managed to come across some good reads. Check them out below!

[article] IDPs with Poor User Experience Are Destined to Fail. I’m sure many of us have built internal platforms that no one ended up using. If you want your internal developer platform to add value, consider some of the action items called out in this article.

[blog] Supercharging security with generative AI. We made a ton of announcements today at the RSA conference, all related to adding AI to the security experience. Also see posts on AI-powered insights into threat intelligence, AI-powered security investigation, and AI-powered risk summaries.

[docs] Architecture decision records overview. If you don’t already use ADRs, now is a good time to start. This short addition to our Google Cloud docs shows you when to use them, how to format them, and how they work.

[article] Why generative AI will turbocharge low-code and no-code development. Classic low-code tools will have to undergo changes in this generative AI world. We’ll see if that improves those tools, or ushers in entirely new ones.

[article] GitLab Survey Reveals DevSecOps Gains. Apparently we’re all getting better at security in some spots, but still struggling in others. Any of this sound familiar to you?

[blog] Recommending news articles using Vertex AI Matching Engine. Recommendation systems are going to get better and better thanks to easier-to-use AI. You can follow along with this cool post.

[blog] Good Goals/Bad Goals. This is a very good post on thing about goals, and how you can do better work defining them.

[blog] Go and Redis, Better Together. If you have a platform you really like using, such as Redis as a database, then you may pick programming languages that work really well with that platform.
