Managed Kubernetes in AWS

Feb 01, 2018 | by Samuel Thurston, Software Engineer | Tags: Cloud

One of the biggest crowd reactions during November’s AWS re:INVENT conference was AWS CEO Andy Jassy’s announcement of Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS).

Best Practices - Treat Your SDK Like You Treat Your Code

Jan 18, 2018 | by Hudson Ludvigson, Senior Software Engineer | Tags: Internet of Things

Developers often work individually or in a larger team to produce products for a variety of consumers.  Sometimes it’s a web app, a mobile app, or perhaps software for an overall system that includes some hardware.  When developers are creating something that will be out on the marketplace they know it will reflect on them or their company, and have an impact on whether or not trust is built in the marketplace.  In this scenario, documentation in the form of help menus or instruction manuals may be extensive to make sure the user experience is ideal and that any issues or concerns raised are promptly addressed.  In contrast to this, when it comes to working with other developers through documentation or direct support, completeness and attention to detail can often be lacking.


Survival Analysis: Predicting the Future

Jan 11, 2018 | by Tawni Burger, Software Engineer | Tags: Big Data

In my previous blog post I discussed several key takeaways from the 23rd ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD 2017), including time series analysis, survival analysis, and massive online analytics. In this post, I will take a deeper dive into survival analysis. I’ll go into detail on what survival analysis is, how it originated, the components involved, different methods that can be utilized, real-world examples, and open source libraries available.
