Twitter’s popularity was taking off, and the engineering team was learning how to scale the product. During that time, Twitter adopted Apache Mesos, and began breaking up its monolithic architecture into different services. As more and more services were deployed, engineers at Twitter decided to standardize communications between those services with a tool called
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/CloudRD.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download In the first 10 years of cloud computing, a set of technologies emerge that every software enterprise needs; continuous delivery, version control, logging, monitoring, routing, data warehousing. These tools were built into the Cloud Foundry project, a platform for application deployment and management. As we enter the second decade of cloud computing, another new set of technologies are emerging as useful tools. Serverless
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/SpringData.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download In the 1980s and the 1990s, most applications used only a relational database for their data management. In the early 2000s, software projects started to use an ever increasing number of data sources. MongoDB popularized the document database, which allows storage of objects that do not have a consistent schema. The Hadoop distributed file system enabled the redundant storage and efficient querying of
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/ScalaNative.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Scala is a functional and object oriented programming language built on the JVM. Scala Native takes this language, loved by many, and brings it to bare metal. Scala Native is an optimizing ahead-of-time compiler and lightweight managed runtime designed specifically for Scala. Denys Shabalin is a Research Assistant at the EPFL and the primary creator of Scala Native. In this episode, Adam Bell
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/SpringBoot.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Spring Framework is an application framework for Java and JVM languages. Spring was originally built around dependency injection, but grew to become an entire ecosystem of tools and plugins for Java developers. Spring was originally released 15 years ago, and since then a lot has changed around application development. For example, many engineers deploy applications to the cloud in microservices architectures. The expectations
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/LLVM.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Every program gets compiled down to 1s and 0s before it can be executed against hardware. Before being translated to machine code, programs that are written in a language like Rust, Swift, or Java spend time in an intermediate representation. In Java, this intermediate representation is Java bytecode. Many different languages–such as Scala–translate to Java bytecode, because there has been lots of optimization
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/kotlin_edited.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Whatever engineering problem you have right now, the solution is probably not to write a new programming language. But sometimes it does make sense. JetBrains makes IDEs–the interactive development environments that many people code in, like IntelliJ and Webstorm. And all of these IDEs are written in Java. So the JetBrains team is very familiar with Java and the JVM. Since JetBrains spends
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/ReactiveStreams_edited_fixed.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Akka is a toolkit for building concurrent, distributed, message-driven applications on the JVM. Akka provides an implementation of the actor model of concurrency, which simplifies concurrency by adding a lighter weight abstraction than threads and thread pools. Konrad Malawski joins the show today to discuss Akka and reactive streams. Reactive streams is an initiative to provide a standard for asynchronous stream processing. This
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Clojure_edited_fixed.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Clojure is a dynamically typed functional language that runs on the JVM. Today’s guest Alex Miller gives us an overview of Clojure’s core functionality. Alex is a developer of Cognitect, and a founder of the the Strange Loop conference. We discuss the data structures, garbage collection, and concurrency support. How does Clojure compare to other JVM languages like Scala and Groovy? How
“I really enjoyed the challenge of taking complicated things that apparently only really smart people should understand, and explaining them to everybody.”
Functional languages encourage practices and patterns that can simplify concurrent programming. Scala, Clojure, and Akka are functional tools built on the Java Virtual Machine.
Jessica Kerr is a functional developer on the JVM. She currently works at Monsanto. At QCon San Francisco, she will be giving a talk called Contracts in Clojure: Settling Types vs. Tests.
http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/presto_chris.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadPresto is a low latency SQL language built for interactive analysis. Christopher Berner works on Presto at Facebook. Questions: Is Presto for data scientists, developers, or everyone? What are the problems with Hive? How does Hive break a query into mapreduces? How do the clients, coordinators, and workers interact? Is Presto both fast and cheap? How does Presto tune Java to get speed
