Understanding Microservices

Description: As a system ages, developers often have to grapple with the seemingly inexorable rigidity and fragility that comes with maturity. In an effort to combat this, many organizations are not refactoring at the source-code level, but at the system level. Learn why many companies are splitting their previously monolithic applications into scores of microservices that work together and understand some of the common pitfalls and challenges associated with this increasingly popular architecture.

Automating Tinder With Eigenfaces and StanfordNLP

Description: When faced with the option of spending considerable time swiping an app or automating it, Justin Long (@crockpotveggies) assembled a bot that used eigenvector-based machine learning in combination with StanfordNLP sentiment analysis to fully automate the Tinder experience.
