Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we launched our big DevOps survey, found out how to integrate Python with Java, and learned how to keep networks secure while working remotely. We also took a deep dive into the MVC web framework Go-Web.

DevOps in 2020 – our big DevOps survey

What is DevOps? This question has no clear answer, because the truth lies somewhere between corporate culture, tooling, methodology and different approaches to working. Nevertheless, there are of course factors that give an indication of the extent to which DevOps has arrived in a company or a team. With our large DevOps survey that we launched last week, we want to find out how your company is doing with the implementation of DevOps.

Take part in the survey here.

Integrating Python with Java

Last week, we looked into how Python and Java can be combined. Python is an object-oriented scripting language, which automatically makes it a good pair for Java. But when combined with a Python interpreter written entirely in Java, like Jython, you could do things like write entire applets in Python.

See how to combine the two languages here.

Web Service with Go and Go-Web

Go-Web is a Golang MVC framework for building web services. It reduces the need for “repetitive” tasks like explicitly binding routes, actions, and middleware; while not problematic per se, programmers may want to adopt “ready-to-use” solutions. In this article, you will learn how to install and use Go-Web.

PyTorch 1.5 arrives with stable C++ frontend API

We welcomed a new release in the area of machine learning last week as the second PyTorch release of the year landed. PyTorch 1.5 brought some of the deep learning library’s previously experimental features into stable mode, including the C++ frontend API.

Take a closer look at PyTorch 1.5 here.

How to keep your network secure & Agile during COVID-19

In this article, we looked at the best ways to keep your corporate network secure and agile during the Coronavirus pandemic. And while mainly written with DevOps managers in mind, there are also plenty of key points for remote working developers to think about – after all, we need to support one another as a team during these tough times!
