Josh Wills: Visibility and Monitoring for Machine Learning Models
 
11:38
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/launchdarkly-how-to-test-in-production/ Josh started our Meetup with a short talk on deploying machine learning models into production. He's worked as the Director of Data Science at Cloudera, he wrote the java version of Google's AB testing framework, and he recently held the position of Director of Data Engineering at Slack. In his opinion the most important question is: "How often do you want to deploy this?" You should never deploy a machine learning model once. If the problem is not important enough to keep working on it and deploy new models, then its not important enough to pay the cost of putting it into production in the first place. Watch his talk to get his thoughts on testing machine learning models in production. For more developer focused content, visit https://www.heavybit.com/library

Cindy Sridharan: Testing Microservices: A Sane Approach Pre-Production & In Production
 
27:21
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/launchdarkly-how-to-test-in-production/ In December 2017, Cindy wrote an article about testing microservices. She wrote it in response to an article that showcased a team’s incredibly complex testing infrastructure. The piece described how a team built something that helped their developers run a lot of tests very quickly. And while it helped tremendously, Cindy wondered why it had to be so complex. “The whole point of microservices is to enable teams to develop, deploy and scale independently. Yet when it comes to testing, we insist on testing *everything* together by spinning up *identical* environments, contradicting the mainspring of why we do microservices.” Check out her talk to see how she recommends testing microservices—how to think about testing, what to consider when setting up tests, and other best practices.

Netflix runs on hundreds of interconnected microservices that, as a whole system, is too complex for any one person to completely understand. To help understand this complicated system they are developing Vizceral, a tool that helps distill the most useful bits of information and present it to the user in a way that they can ‘feel’ the state of the system without needing to understand all the moving parts. There is still a lot of work to be done to get more and more intuition about the system, but it has already proven vital internally and has been open sourced.

This post was written by the evening’s main speaker, Mike ‘Bear’ Taylor. To get started, let me introduce who I am. My name is Bear and my job at CircleCI is the operations side of the Site Reliability Engineering team. I’ve been using Python to develop applications and ops tools for many decades. When I joined CircleCI, I naturally started to use CircleCI in my Python projects. One of my goals is to make CircleCI a best-in-class tool for Python Continuous Integration. To do that I decided to create a simple web application and then apply the current best practices for testing and deploys to that project. This is the result of that research.

Serverless Meetup: The Future of Serverless with Kenton Varda
 
33:02
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/serverless-meetup-with-cloudflare/ To understand the future of Serverless, it’s important to grasp the history of web applications. In the early 90’s, hosting web applications required buying and managing huge mainframes, regardless of your actual needs. Since then, the industry has worked tirelessly to remove the barriers to hosting, first by building commodity servers, then by sharing hardware via virtual machines, and more recently, containers. Now, with serverless, we’re able to easily run a container to handle a specific event. Still, the difference between running your own cloud server and running a serverless application hasn’t been a meaningful one for users, because serverless is just using someone else’s container instead of someone else’s server. Your serverless functions are still running in massive data centers at a handful of pre-selected locations around the globe. Cloudflare recognizes that there are still plenty of opportunities to increase efficiency, and we’ve been working on new products to address them. What if all of the API’s you needed to call from your serverless code were hosted in the same location as your serverless function? If that were the case, you could add as many layers to your code as you wanted and not need to worry about increased latency. And what if people integrating with your code didn’t have to have their API calls travel all the way to San Francisco when they’re in Australia? If a group of people in Australia are collaborating in a Google Doc, their keystrokes shouldn’t have to travel across the world in order to update the document. And we don’t want to use a peer to peer network because user’s devices can be unreliable. Kenton wants the world to focus on running your code everywhere instead of inside of one massive central data center. Cloudflare Workers (https://www.cloudflare.com/products/cloudflare-workers/) currently utilizes more than 154 data centers, and your serverless code can run in all of them at once. Workers ensures that users connect to the closest data center, meaning that the people using your application in Australia connect to the data center in Australia instead of a data center in San Francisco. The next major hurdle for serverless is reliable and persistent distributed storage. Today when a serverless application is running at the data center that’s closest to you, a connection to the origin server must still be made to pull information from the database. Kenton’s goal is to change that. Cloudflare is working on storage at the edge using serverless technology. The broad concept is for most of a user’s database information to be stored in the data center nearest them, while remote databases can regularly communicate with each other, making all of a user’s data as close to them as possible without being stored on their own machine.

Nathan Bronson: Improving RocksDB Write Scalability
 
20:05
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/improving-rocksdbs-write-scalability-counting-things-at-smyte/ Nathan Bronson has been an engineer at Facebook for 5 years, most notably on the TAO cache. He received a PhD from Stanford for work on better programming models for single-machine concurrency. He's not a database expert, but the code he helped write ran a billion database queries while you were reading this bio. Currently he's working in Facebook's Boston office on a new interface to the social graph with stronger consistency primitives. RocksDB's architecture is highly concurrent for reads, but not for writes. When there are concurrent writers, their work is grouped together and applied by a single thread. This makes it easy to batch log writes, keeps the write path simple and reliable, and is sufficient for many workloads. Unfortunately, it also severely limits write scalability. In this talk Nathan will dig into a series of changes he made to rocksdb to tackle the scalability problem with minimal impact on the core write logic. These changes allow writing threads to join a write group without waiting for the main DB mutex, reduce the cost of waiting for write group leader, and allow many threads to simultaneously update the memtable's lock-free skip list. The end result is useful (not perfect) write scalability, getting a 3X improvement in peak insert rate with sync on commit disabled and 2X improvement with it enabled.

Serverless Meetup: Workers in the Wilderness with Rita Kozlov
 
18:56
Read the full blog post here - https://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/serverless-meetup-with-cloudflare/ Traditionally speaking, code has always run in one of two places; a client browser, or on an origin server. Running code in the browser can be problematic for many reasons, not least of which is that you don’t always have control of the browser. On the other hand, code on your origin can often be difficult to update without breaking things. That’s why Cloudflare introduced Workers, a serverless solution that runs at the CDN layer between your origin server and the client’s browser. Some of the solutions we’ve seen implemented are simple tasks, such as setting cache-control or CSP headers, or handling CORS. Additionally, the product is frequently used to set country based actions such as redirecting users to country-specific site variations or automatically translating pages to a visitor’s language. Workers can be leveraged to protect and cache private content too, including premium videos or images. And since Workers see both incoming requests and outbound responses, you can use a worker to monitor your responses for sensitive information and alert your teams accordingly. A/B testing is another popular use for Workers, check the helpful code samples in our documentation https://developers.cloudflare.com/workers/recipes/a-b-testing/. Workers can alternatively house entire applications. One recent example is NPM completely removing their origin server and instead serving their entire site from a Worker with assets stored in a storage bucket.

Read the full blog post here - http://www.heavybit.com/library/blog/scaling-your-api-design-workflow/ When you combine microservices with increasingly rapid development processes, it’s easy to find yourself buried under a complete mess of APIs, each different from the next. At Apiary we’ve observed that as the number of internal APIs increases, even the most seasoned architects can easily become overwhelmed by the complexity they present. That’s why the ‘design-first’ or ‘contract-first’ approach is sweeping the API landscape. Not only does it help nip much of the inconsistency and complexity in the bud, it also helps automate away the most routine parts of API development like prototyping, testing, and documentation.
