Larry has 15 years' experience in the military under his belt, and is still training as a software developer. We talk about the up-and-coming developer experience, before his first job and what they're looking for. We also talk about social change, and how different the software world is from most of the real world. A little psychology, a little so…
 
Summary: In this episode Matthias Jasny from TU Darmstadt talks about P4DB, a database that uses a programmable switch to accelerate OLTP workloads. The main idea of P4DB is that it implements a transaction processing engine on top of a P4-programmable switch. The switch can thus act as an accelerator in the network, especially when it is used to s…
 
Tobi works at Shopify and is the author of benchee, an Elixir-language benchmarking suite. He runs RUG:B, a Berlin-based Ruby group, maintains SimpleCov and... Lots of stuff.

Oh man, my audio quality is AWFUL here. Luckily Ross's is better and he's great at carrying the conversation! We talk about how Ross "cheats" both to get into teaching and to get into tech, and about some overlap between the two -- we talk about Seymour Papert, of course. Later we get into different paradigms of programming and what you learn from …
 
Summary: Many transactions in web applications are constructed ad-hoc in the application code. For example, developers might explicitly use locking primitives or validation procedures to coordinate critical code fragments. In this episode, Chuzhe tells us these ad-hoc transactions, database operations coordinated by application code. Until Chuzhe’s…
 
We talk about how Craig got started, of course, and about buzzwords and how he did his early job hunting. We talk a *lot* about Ruby performance - who's who, what matters, what's annoying. We veer a bit into how Pina Coladas shouldn't use dark rum (heresy!) and about the example of Centaur Chess, and how it related to other human/computer interacti…
 
Summary: Enterprises use distributed database systems to meet the demands of mixed or hybrid transaction/analytical processing (HTAP) workloads that contain both transactional (OLTP) and analytical (OLAP) requests. Distributed HTAP systems typically maintain a complete copy of data in row-oriented storage format that is well-suited for OLTP workloa…
 
This episode is with me, my wife Krissy and Akien McIain, a mutual friend who is also a very senior test automation engineer. When two old engineers get together to talk, you can always expect a lot of war stories... But more importantly, a lot of this is a compare/contrast between developers, QA and test automation. What's similar? What's differen…
 
Summary: Distributed in-memory processing frameworks accelerate iterative workloads by caching suitable datasets in memory rather than recomputing them in each iteration. Selecting appropriate datasets to cache as well as allocating a suitable cluster configuration for caching these datasets play a crucial role in achieving optimal performance. In …
 
Summary: The JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a popular data format used in document stores to natively support semi-structured data. In this interview, Thomas talks about how he addressed the problem of JSON similarity lookup queries: given a query document and a distance threshold, retrieve all documents that are within the threshold from the…
 
Summary: The use of machine learning (ML) in high-stakes societal decisions has encouraged the consideration of fairness throughout the ML lifecycle. Although data integration is one of the primary steps to generate high-quality training data, most of the fairness literature ignores this stage. In this interview Sainyam discusses why he focuses on …
 
I barely know how to summarise this one. It's one of my favourites. Andrew is from dot-NET rather than Ruby. He was raised by missionaries, and is thus extremely literate about cultures and how to introduce yourself into a new one. He sees a lot of what I see from a very enlightened outsider's perspective. Which is like catnip to me, just so we're …
 
Summary: A climate network represents the global climate system by the interactions of a set of anomaly time-series. Network science has been applied on climate data to study the dynamics of a climate network. The core task and first step to enable interactive network science on climate data is the efficient construction and update of a climate net…
 
Summary: In this interview Felix discusses "historical what-if queries", a novel type of what-if analysis that determines the effect of a hypothetical change to the transactional history of a database. For example, “how would revenue be affected if we would have charged an additional $6 for shipping?” In his research Felix has developed efficient t…
