Regex: Processing patterns in text
InfoWorld
by
2d ago
Many programming languages feature regular expressions—or "regex" for short—which are used to find patterns in strings of text. A regex library is a mini-language for describing patterns, which can be combined with utilities to extract and work with the patterns found in your text. This article introduces you to using regular expressions in your programs. How regular expressions work Some say a set of regular expressions comprises a domain-specific language, or DSL; essentially, a mini-programming language. A full-blown programming language like Java or Python can do many things, but ..read more

Microsoft’s platform-based approach to cloud development has allowed it to offer managed versions of many familiar elements of the tech stack, especially within its data platform. As well as its own SQL Server (as Azure SQL) and the no-SQL Cosmos DB, it has managed versions of familiar open source databases, including PostgreSQL and MySQL. Using these familiar databases and APIs makes it easy to migrate data from on premises to Azure, or to build new cloud-native applications without a steep learning curve. Once your data is stored on Azure, you can use familiar tools and techniques to use it ..read more

Java garbage collection revamp would boost performance
InfoWorld
by
2d ago
A proposal floating in the Java community would improve application performance by extending the ZGC (Z Garbage Collector) to maintain separate generations for young and old objects. This would allow ZGC to more frequently collect young objects, which tend to die young, Java’s developers said. Specific goals of the OpenJDK Java Enhancement Proposal (JEP) for generational ZGC include lower risks of allocation stalls, lower required heap memory overhead, and lower garbage collection CPU overhead. These benefits should come without significant throughput reduction compared to non-generational ZGC ..read more

From the 10x developer to the 10x team

Bigfoot and the mythical 10x developer have a lot in common: Sightings are rare and not definitive. However, although many people have a fuzzy idea about what a Bigfoot looks like, the profile of the 10x developer—the developer who is 10 times more productive than their peers—is more elusive. This is because notions of the 10x developer are based, at least in part, on undefined or commonly agreed-upon measures of individual productivity and the assumption that those measures can be deployed to assess the relative productivity of team members. One problem with the concept is that even if a reli ..read more

From ‘cloud washing’ to ‘AI washing’

3d ago
Remember cloud washing from a few years ago? This term refers to the practice of companies representing their products and services as cloud-based when they are not truly cloud-based. In other words, cloud washing was, and still is, a marketing tactic that capitalizes on the hype surrounding cloud computing without delivering the benefits that true cloud solutions offer. Today we’re facing the same issues with an even older technology: artificial intelligence. The hype around generative AI is driving this, but AI has been rising as a hyped technology for several years, even though it star ..read more
