Daily Reading List – May 9, 2023 (#085)

85 issues in, let’s change the name a bit. Since this little bulletin is a recap of what I read in a given day—not a general “wrap up” of daily news—the name “daily reading list” seems more accurate.

Today, I read through some useful survey data, announcements about generative AI, and good material on continuous delivery.

[article] CDF Report Reveals Lack of DevOps Maturity. I freely admit that I live in a tech bubble, but these numbers still surprised me. We have a long ways to go on fundamentals like CI/CD, let alone failure recovery.

[blog] Bringing Google Cloud generative AI to popular workplace apps. Most of us will be using AI-assisted apps this year, even if we’re not thinking about it. Which is how it should be!

[blog] Untangling the many aspects of EDA. The modern architect and developer should be aware of “event driven architecture” and what it entails. This post describes some of the main ideas.

[blog] The meaning of I/O: How Google’s annual event got its name. There’s a zero percent chance that any of you would guess how we named our conference I/O. Surprised me.

[blog] Software Bill of Materials (SBOM). This is an excerpt from an upcoming book and does a good job explaining SBOMs and how they work.

[blog] Introducing watsonx: The future of AI for business. IBM coming out hard with some generative AI technologies. Another one to watch.

[article] Generative AI at work: 3 steps to crafting an enterprise policy. This looks like reasonable advice for those figuring out how to get the most out of generative AI without causing (many) new problems.

[blog] Connecting GitHub Actions and Google Cloud Deploy. Just because you CAN use a particular service for many things, doesn’t mean you should. If you want to tack on a proper continuous deployment service to your GitHub Actions, consider Cloud Deploy.

[blog] Creating a Google Cloud Deploy bot on Google Chat. Another Cloud Deploy post today. Lots happening here. Read this one to learn how to build a bot that publishes to your Chat system.

[article] Perseverance: 7 Stoic Lessons on How To Keep Going. Perseverance is a good character trait. Read this article to learn what it means to persevere.
