Docker in Production: An History of Failure – The HFT Guy

At the time it wasn’t possible to run a container [in the background] and there wasn’t any command to see what was running, debug or ssh into the container. The experiment was quick, Docker was useless and closer to an alpha prototype than a release. Fast forward to 2016. New job, new company and docker hype is growing like mad. We have 12 dockerized applications running in production as we write this article, spread over 31 hosts on AWS (1 docker app per host).

The following article narrates our journey with Docker, an adventure full of dangers and unexpected turns. Noto Fonts. When text is rendered by a computer, sometimes characters are displayed as “tofu”.

Une IA de Google décrit avec précision le contenu de photos !

Ce type de technologie est par exemple très prisé par les réseaux sociaux comme Facebook. Ce dernier s'en sert en particulier pour suggérer à ses utilisateurs de marquer leurs proches lorsqu'ils envoient des clichés dans lesquels ces derniers apparaissent. Mais il y a beaucoup plus impressionnant : ce sont les outils qui sont capables d'analyser le contenu d'une photographie et d'en faire une description très fidèle.
