[Links of the Day] 17/09/2019 : DHCP load balancer, Graph processing on FPGA, Transform data with SQL

  • Dhcplb : DHCP load balancer. Looks really cool as it helps scale physical datacenter rapidly with the limited hassle of DHCP. It also reduces a lot of the network complexity that comes with the DHCP protocol.
  • Graph Processing on FPGA : survey and taxonomy on graph computations on FPGAs.
  • DBT : enables data analysts and engineers to transform their data using SQL language.

[Links of the Day] 16/09/2019 : Proof of History Blockchain, ElasticSearch cluster operation Library, using ML to extract scholar document info

  • Solana : Proof of History based blockchain system.  [website]
  • VulcanizerGo library for interacting with an Elasticsearch cluster. It is not meant to be a full-fledged Elasticsearch client. Its goal is to provide a high-level API to help with common tasks that are associated with operating an Elasticsearch cluster such as querying health status of the cluster, migrating data off of nodes, updating cluster settings, and more. [github]
  • Grobid : machine learning software for extracting information from scholarly documents.

[Links of the Day] 10/09/2019: 6 pager, engineering user stories, disaggregated persistent memory


  • Using 6 Page and 2 Page Documents To Make Organizational Decisions : The famous Jeff Bezos six-page document and review meeting process, as a mechanism to address this challenge. I like the concept but it can be hard to adopt without a company-wide push from the top. 
  • Engineering guide to writing correct User Stories : Nice and concise guide that will help you to write better user stories and focus on their needs.
  • OpenFAM : a programming model for disaggregated persistent memory. This looks cool but I really wonder if HP labs ( and the parent company) is going anywhere with this. They touted the whole "the machine" a while back but we can't see any production-ready application of the concept yet.  [paper]
