So The Morning Paper gets my vote for cool resource of the month… dives into a computer science research paper each day– usually something new, sometimes looking backwards for background on one of their other papers. Always good to skim, sometimes to dive in if the subject is one you are engaged with.
For example, right now here’s articles that are at least tangentially relevant to my main gig or my other topics of interest in computing right now:
- I’m looking at making a SaaS platform more self-managing; this paper on Paracloud is a thought-provoking read
- I’m thinking about different file representations of data and how to efficiently parse them; this paper on using Rust to create safe parsers quickly taught me a few (more than a few) new things
- This paper on word vectors for natural language processing is not connected with anything I work on but it’s just cool 🙂
- RAMCloud is connected with things I’m following around Remote DMA, Apache Arrow and Infiniswap
So there’s a lot in there if you don’t have bandwidth to keep up with everything happening in tech right now. And who does?
