Almost every machine learning breakthrough you hear about (and most of what’s currently called “artificial intelligence“) is supervised learning; where you start with a curated and labeled data set. But another technique, reinforcement learning, is just starting to make its way out of the research lab. Reinforcement learning is where an agent learns by interacting […]

Earlier this week, Microsoft made the Kubernetes container orchestration service generally available on Azure Container Service, alongside the other predominant container orchestration engines Docker Swarm and Mesosphere’s Data Center Operating System (DC/OS). The move is one more step in building out the service, Kubernetes co-founder Brendan Burns told The New Stack. Burns moved from Google to […]

This week’s release of Visual Studio 2017 marks 20 years that software has been Microsoft’s flagship integrated development environment (IDE), and it might also mark the point when DevOps becomes truly mainstream. Visual Studio still caters for a wide audience — from the hobby developers who use the free Community edition, to large outsourcing providers […]

Microsoft’s newest update to Windows 10, called The Creators Update, will contain Windows Subsystem for Linux, a tool that could make Windows 10 much more appealing to the increasing number of developers considering a move from Mac OS because they find the MacBook Pro underpowered for their needs. WSL is often called ‘Bash on Windows’ because […]

Microsoft’s latest update of Windows 10, called Creator’s Update, marks a new level of stability and support for the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), the way to run Linux binaries on Windows 10. It also brings the promise of expanding beyond the current Ubuntu distro to support multiple Linux distributions in the future. Microsoft’s Rich […]

If you want to do machine learning, you need data to do it with. So far, however, the complexity of machine learning tools has usually meant doing development with a framework like TensorFlow, the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, using R and Python and specialist statistical tools, or using cloud APIs to machine learning services. Any of these […]
Microsoft is investing in containers, both with its Azure Container Service and with Azure Service Fabric, its distributed systems platform for building microservices apps. Service Fabric is the fabric that Azure runs on, made available to developers. Azure SQL Database, Skype for Business, Service Bus, Event Hubs, Cosmos DB, Intune and other Microsoft cloud services run on Service […]

Containers make it easier to deploy applications with all their libraries and dependencies, though in many cases organizations do have to change their workflow to accommodate the new technology. That can cause adoption of container technology to stall inside organizations when the change is driven by operations, noted Gabe Monroy, the Microsoft’s lead program manager for containers […]

Microsoft’s recently released Cosmos DB is a globally distributed NoSQL database service that lets you pick and mix your favorite data model and database APIs and still get the consistency offered by a standard transactional database. Cosmos DB, which debuted at the Microsoft Build user conference earlier this year, is an upgrade of the Azure DocumentDB service, […]

If APIs are eating the world, as they say, Twilio is taking a bite out of engagement portion of this API world. These days, Twilio might be best known as the service that Uber has been using to provide the SMS channel for drivers and riders to communicate with each other; It offers handy APIs […]

In his keynote at the Microsoft Build conference earlier this year, the head of Microsoft’s AI and Research Harry Shum hinted that at some point the Microsoft Azure cloud service will give developers access to field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Azure Chief Technology Officer Mark Russinovich also talked about Azure exposing “[FPGAs] as a service for you sometime […]

Twilio has launched a preview service, called Functions, that lets developers write and run serverless code within the Twilio Runtime console, giving them more control over how to manage their Twilio API-driven messaging applications. This pre-configured environment has helper libraries, API keys, asset storage and debugging tools, which can be accessed inside the Twilio web portal. “The […]

When Microsoft introduced Nano Server in Windows Server 2016, as a small-footprint server OS with no local logon, it was targeted at a few different workloads. The company has found the software is increasingly being used for one type of workload: managing containers. As a result, the company has whittled down the core of Nano Server […]
With its Einstein service, Salesforce mixes automated AI with custom data models developers can create for dealing with the specific needs of their customers. Despite the white-haired personification it uses in marketing, Salesforce Einstein isn’t an AI assistant like Alexa or Cortana; instead it’s a set of AI-powered services across the range of Salesforce offerings […]

The first release candidate of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2017 is available this week, adding a handful of smaller updates to the major new features in this release, which comes a little more than a year after SQL Server 2016. The best-known new feature is support for Linux (RHEL, SUSE Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu), and for containers […]

When the Microsoft SQL Server team started working on supporting Linux for SQL Server 2017, their entire test infrastructure was, naturally enough, on Windows Server (using virtual machines deployed on Azure). Instead of simply replicating that environment for Linux, they used Azure Container Service to produce a fully automated test system that packs seven times […]

Developers don’t need to be building a voice or messaging tool to find Twilio’s APIs useful. The company, which is most known for its communications platform, also has a wide variety of APIs that can help developers embed more functionality within their apps, including those for authentication, session management and data synchronization Authentication The new […]

Creating a container is fast and simple and can be done from the command line, but creating a VM to host the resulting container still takes time and usually means using a different interface. Microsoft has addressed this potential bottleneck with the newly launched Azure Container Instance service, which can be used to create individual […]
