Spark – Actions and Transformations

Reading Time: 4 minutes Hey guys, welcome to series of spark blogs, this blog being the first blog in this series we would try to keep things as crisp as possible, so let’s get started. So I recently get to start learning spark about believe me and now it has made me inquisitive about it, for a brief introduction of spark, I would say that it is a pretty Continue Reading

Agile Release Trains – ART – Organisation and Roles

Reading Time: 4 minutes Agile Release Trains are the heart of Essential SAFe in the similar way Essential SAFe configuration is the heart of the Framework. It is the simplest starting point for implementation. In this blog, we are going to talk about Agile Release Trains (ART). We will see how Agile Release Trains in itself is an organisation and also see important roles within ART. It describes the Continue Reading

Essential SAFe – “Implementation Starting Point”

Reading Time: 4 minutes In one of my initial blogs, we touch based on the 4 configuration that SAFe provides. These configurations can fit from small organisations to large enterprises. It is flexible enough for organisations to leverage to their specific needs. In this specific blog and the following blogs, we would deep dive into Essential SAFe. It is the starting point for SAFe implementation in the organisation.  Essential Continue Reading

MachineX: Generative Adversary Networks (GAN)

Reading Time: 6 minutes In this blog , we are going to talk about GAN(Generative Adversary Networks) Basics and how they actually works. GAN is about creating, like drawing a portrait or composing a symphony. This is hard compared to other deep learning fields. It is much easier to identify a Monet painting than painting one, by computers or by people. But it brings us closer in understanding intelligence. Continue Reading

Reactive Architecture

Reading Time: 2 minutes Recently I got an invitation to present a guest lecture for faculty of Engineering colleges in ABES college of Engineering. I came up with the most trending topic i.e Reactive Architecture. We talked about what is this buzzing keywords and why does it came into existence. Also What are the challenges one were facing and how are the real world problems being solved by using Continue Reading

SAFe – Lean Agile Mindset

Reading Time: 3 minutes In my previous blogs we have seen what is the need for SAFe and also had a high level view of SAFe four different configurations that organisations can leverage to fit to their needs. In this blog let us see what changes do we need in the thought process as Leaders to drive the Lean Agile mindset. One of the biggest challenges any organisation face Continue Reading

Kick-start to a Play Framework

Reading Time: 3 minutes Hello everyone, welcome to my blog 🙂In this blog we’ll get familiar with some basic concepts of play framework. Play is a full-stack framework with all of the components you need to build a Web Application or a REST service, including: an integrated HTTP server, form handling, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection, a powerful routing mechanism, I18n support, and many more. Why Play? Its Model-View-Controller Continue Reading

Tale of Apache Spark

Reading Time: 6 minutes Data is being produced extensively in today’s world and it is going to be generated more rapidly in future. 90% of total data that is produced in the world is produced in last two years only and it is estimated that in 2020 world’s total data would reach 45 ZB and data generated each day would be enough that if we try to store it Continue Reading

MachineX: Starts With Why ft. Convolutional Neural Network

Reading Time: 4 minutes If you are looking for a short answer, I would say real life image dataset are not small like MNIST to build a model with a fully connected neural network. But let’s produce some dopamine and explore the convolutional neural network a bit more in-depth. Our Visual Cortex focuses on certain areas to identify any image and similarly Convolutional Neural Network also focuses on the Continue Reading

Persistent Volumes and Persistent Volume Claims in Kubernetes – I

Reading Time: 5 minutes Kubernetes has a PersistentVolume subsystem that abstracts details of how storage is provisioned from how it is consumed. As a developer of the pod you wouldn’t want to worry about the actual network storage infrastructure available in the cluster, would you? Anything pertaining to the infrastructure should be the sole responsibility of the cluster administrator. If a developer requires 50 Gi of space, he should Continue Reading

Streaming data from Cassandra using Alpakka

Reading Time: 7 minutes Alpakka project is an open-source initiative to implement stream aware and reactive pipelines using Java and Scala which is built on top of Akka streams and specially designed to provide a DSL for reactive and stream-oriented programming with built-in support for backpressure to avoid the flood of data. As a reference, Akka streams supports reactive streams and JDK 9+ compliant implementation and therefore fully interoperable Continue Reading

Unit Testing with ScalaCheck

Reading Time: 5 minutes Unit testing is essential to writing good code. Unit testing allows us to capture bugs as they are created, not long after they are deployed. A little time spent writing unit tests can save a lot of time debugging. If unit testing is not done it can become increasing more difficult and time consuming to fix bugs as code complexity and size increases. However, in Continue Reading
