Links of the day 23/11/2015 : Machine learning book, Spotify monitoring , graph

  • Heroic : How Spotify monitor its infrastructure. TL;DR: Cassandra for time series persistence, Kafka for transport and elastic search on top for presentation. Nice feature: you can federate cluster across zones or data-center making the overall system more robust. 
  • Understanding Machine Learning - From Theory to Algorithms : Ebooks introducing machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way. The book provides a theoretical account of the fundamentals underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.
  • Plotly.js : want nice graph, get plotly.js. The core technology and JavaScript graphing library behind Plotly’s products (MIT license).
