Open Source Product Strategy with Shaun Connolly

Linux has created much more value for Google than it has for Linus Torvalds. Ruby on Rails has created more value for Airbnb than it has for David Heinemeier Hansson. Successful open source projects create more value than their creators’ capture–and that’s one reason why collections of people on the Internet are often inspired to

Cloud Search with Liam Cavanagh

Search is part of almost every application. Users search for movies to watch. Engineers search through terabytes of log messages to find exceptions. Drivers search through maps to find a destination. Search remains an unsolved problem, with lots of room for optimization. Many search applications have been built Elasticsearch, an open source distributed search engine.

Open vSwitch: Virtual Networking with Ben Pfaff

Virtual machines are operating system instances that run alongside each other on the same physical host. The virtual machines running on a physical host are managed by a hypervisor running on the physical host. A cluster of two physical servers could have four virtual machines running across those two physical instances. Those four virtual machines

Data Warehouse with Christian Kleinerman

A data warehouse provides fast access to large data sets for analytics, data science, and dashboards. A data warehouse differs from a transactional database, because you often do not need to update specific records. Because of the read-only nature of the access patterns, and the high volumes of data being queried, the design of a

DevOps at Microsoft with Martin Woodward

The Windows operating system is one of the most widely used pieces of software in history. Windows was started before there was any alternative to a monolithic codebase, because Microsoft was building software before the Internet was widely used by consumers. Networked computers gave rise to web applications, and software engineers began to rethink how

Generative Models with Doug Eck

Google Brain is an engineering team focused on deep learning research and applications. One growing area of interest within Google Brain is that of generative models. A generative model uses neural networks and a large data set to create new data similar to the ones that the network has seen before. One approach to making

Mapillary: Computer Vision Crowdsourcing with Peter Neubauer

Mapillary is a platform for gathering photos taken by smartphones and using that data to build a 3D model of the world. Mapillary’s model of the world includes labeled objects such as traffic signs, trees, humans, and buildings. This 3D model can be explored much like you can explore Google Street view. The data set

Airbnb Engineering with Surabhi Gupta

Airbnb began in 2008 as a monolithic Rails application serving the simple purpose of listing homes for rental. Over time, the number of listings increased dramatically, as did the number of people who were renting. With that scale, the Rails app had to be broken into different services, and entire teams were built out to
