Experiment, Fail, Learn, Repeat

Life is too exciting to just keep still!

Summaries from Fossasia conference in Singapore

Here are some of the videos I particularly liked. I summarized some of the interesting points from said websites.

  • Topic: Everything as code https://engineers.sg/video/everything-as-code-fossasia-2018--2409
    • Instead of using GUI tooling to define architecture, have everything be specified in code instead. This opens a whole bunch of ways to actually work with it. Some of the benefits would include being able to utilzie the full set of tools that programmers to work on a set of code (git + repositories + versioning etc). Another benefit would be the portion where it becomes possible to have repeatable builds - it is hard to replicate same actions on the GUI interface of infrastruture platforms.
