Daily Reading List – May 22, 2023 (#094)

I’m in Las Vegas today for a Gartner conference and learned a few things. Below, you’ll also see a few items I read (or watched) today. Dig in!

[article] How CIOs overcome internal resistance to digital transformation. Inertia is usually the biggest competitor for any technology or process. How do you introduce change to an org? This post talks about the need to get leadership momentum and win the “middle.”

[article] Don’t Let Passion Lead to Burnout on Your Team. Good post about ensuring that your passion for something doesn’t interrupt the necessary recovery period.

[article] On-Premises Cloud Is a Failure. Google Has the Fix. There haven’t been many truly successful on-premises cloud offerings. What we’re doing here is a bit different.

[youtube-video] How would AI impact the future of DevOps. Good, short chat between two of my colleagues who discuss where AI speeds us up and helps us get things done.

[article] Prompt Engineering: Get LLMs to Generate the Content You Want. If you’re feeling behind on “getting” many of these AI and LLM concepts, you’re not alone. At all. I like posts like this which clearly explain “prompt engineering” and the different types of prompts we can ask these large language models.

[article] Are large language models wrong for coding? Matt talks about the benefits of reinforced learning over generative AI.

[article] AI Improves Developer Workflow, Says Gradle Dev Evangelist. Relatedly, AI is still going to be extremely useful for those that figure out how to use it best.

[blog] The Death Of Microservices? Nothing new here, but also a reminder that the answer to many things is “it depends.” Except when I ask my kids if they love me.

[blog] Making Your Pictures Worth a Thousand Labels! (with Cloud Vision API). This post walks through image classification, and deep links to language-based tutorials that you can try at no cost.
