Building Images with Kanniko and Deploying to Heroku
A brief technical explanation of deploying containers to Heroku in CI/CD with Kaniko, by DBA’s Aaron Finocchiaro.
Supreme Court 9, Administrative State 0 - In a potentially existential development for the administrative state, SCOTUS rules 9-0 that private litigants can take their case straight to federal court without having to go through an agency’s own judges first. This opens the door to future challenges to the constitutionality of administrative agencies, which have taken on the power to rewrite and enforce laws without Congressional authority.
More Surveillance Creep - Politicians are finding another excuse to expand the surveillance state, as a 21-year-old is arrested for leaking information on Discord. The arrest is probably appropriate in this case, because the accused wasn’t really whistle blowing, and didn’t appear to go through the proper whistle blowing process. He could have done that or gone to congress. Leaking national secrets to some pals on discord isn’t the right way to go about things.
What To Do About AI - Mark Maunder gives us a thorough heads up on the imminent paradigm shift that AI will bring about. Two thirds of the workforce will be impacted, but Mark has some ideas for creators and devs to stay afloat. Elon Musk has thoughts, too
Monolith: The Recommendation System Behind TikTok - A paper lifts the lid on TikTok’s addictive recommender system, which can quickly respond to changes in preferences using online training.
Don’t Make Me Think, Summary - This is a really useful summary of Steve Krug’s “Don’t Make Me Think”, a book that offers a common sense approach to web and mobile usability.
LLM Prompting for Programming - “Xu Hao uses chain of thought and general knowledge prompting with ChatGPT when writing self-testing code.”
Hypershell - “A command-line interface for generating and connecting to peer-to-peer, end-to-end encrypted shells.”
Gimme a Break With That AI - KitKat uses AI to generate some ghastly ads so its creative team can “have a break”. This might be the first AI use case that takes advantage of how bad AI models can be.
