[Links of the Day] 25/09/2018 : Investigating opaque algorithms, Good Go Makefile, Uber metric storage platform

  • Investigating opaque algorithms : Eye-opening set of pieces of journalism that investigates, audits, or critiques algorithms in society. It is amazing how the impact of code is often overlooked while it impacts so many lives on a daily basis. 
  • A Good Makefile for Go : even with go you cannot escape the mighty makefile 
  • M3 : Uber metric platform, built as a storage backend for Prometheus. It handles all the compaction, compression and data aggregation so you don't have to pay these huge AWS bills at the end of the month because you have hyper scaled infrastructure that generates terabytes of metrics... Hoo wait you still do, but at least not because of your monitoring storage cost :) [github]
