Introducing Ephemeral Containers

Ephemeral containers in Kubernetes started with a simple question: is it feasible to run a service on Kubernetes without bundling a Linux distribution userland with every binary?It was early 2016. Kubernetes had just released version 1.2, and my SRE team was evaluating using Google Kubernetes Engine for internal workloads. Docker and Kubernetes examples...

Life after Season of Docs

My journey to technical writing involved a long, windy, and non-linear career path. Before I became a technical writer, I spent years working in finance jobs with a stint of teaching in between. Seeking a career change, I went back to university where I came across the Technical Writing certificate program. It was the perfect fit for my skills and interests....

DeepNull: an open-source method to improve the discovery power of genetic association studies

In our paper “DeepNull models non-linear covariate effects to improve phenotypic prediction and association power,” we proposed a new method, DeepNull, to model the complex relationship between covariate effects on phenotypes to improve Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) results. We have released DeepNull as open source software, with a Colab notebook...

Season of Docs announces results of 2021 program

Season of Docs has announced the 2021 program results for all projects. You can view a list of successfully completed projects on the website along with their case studies.In 2021, the Season of Docs program allowed open source organizations to apply for a grant based on their documentation needs. Selected open source organizations then used their grant...

Boosting Machine Learning with tailored accelerators: Custom Function Units in Renode

Development of Machine Learning algorithms which enable new and exciting applications is progressing at a breakneck pace, and given the long turnaround time of hardware development, the designers of dedicated hardware accelerators are struggling to keep up. FPGAs offer an interesting alternative to ASICs, enabling a much faster and more flexible environment...

#BazelCon 2021 Wrap Up

Knative applies to become a CNCF incubating project

In 2018, the Knative project was founded and released by Google, and was subsequently developed in close partnership with IBM, Red Hat, VMware, and SAP. The project provides a serverless experience layer on Kubernetes, providing the building blocks you need to build and deploy modern, container-based serverless applications. Over the last three years,...

Open source DDR controller framework for mitigating Rowhammer

Rowhammer is a hardware vulnerability that affects DRAM memory chips and can be exploited to modify memory contents, potentially providing root access to the system. It occurs because Dynamic RAM consists of multiple memory cells packed tightly together and specific access patterns can cause unwanted effects that propagate to nearby memory cells and...
