Accidentally building SOTA AI
Lately.AI has been working for years on content generation systems that capture your unique “voice” and are tailored to your unique audience. At first, they didn’t know that they were going to build an AI system, but now they have a state-of-the-art generative platform that provides much more than “prompting” out of thin air. Lately.AI’s CEO Kate explain their journey, her perspective on generative AI in marketing, and much more in this episode!
Of prompts and engineers
Tips, tricks, best practices and philosophical AI debates abound when OpenAI ambassador Bram Adams joins Natalie, Johnny & Mat to discuss prompt engineering.
Starlight, Knuth asks ChatGPT, Stack Overflow mods strike, Reddit API pricing revolt & open source AI has a new champ
The Astro team releases a new documentation builder, legendary computer scientist Donald Knuth plays with ChatGPT, over 500 volunteer mods have signed an open letter to Stack Overflow Inc, Reddit faces a revolt due to their new API pricing & the Technology Innovation Institute release Falcon, a new open source LLM that’s topping Hugging Face’s leaderboard.
Refocusing Docker on developer-first and growth
This week Adam is joined by Scott Johnston, CEO of Docker. Scott shares his journey to the CEO role, how he’s leading the company to not only grow revenue, but to also invest in developer facing features, their shift from a enterprise sales focus to a PLG driven model, and we even talk about Docker Desktop, the competition it faces, and the struggle they face when considering making it open source.
Kaizen! The best pipeline ever™
Gerhard is back! Today we continue our Kaizen tradition by getting together (for the 10th time) with one of our oldest friends to talk all about the continuous improvements we’re making to Changelog’s platform and podcasts.
Digging through Nick Nisi’s tool box
KBall interviews Nick Nisi about the Pandora’s box that is his tooling/developer setup. Starting at the lowest layer of the terminal emulator he uses, they move upwards into command line tools, into Tmux (terminals within terminals!), his epic NeoVim configuration, and finally into the tools he uses for notekeeping and productivity.
ANTHOLOGY — Maintaining maintainers
This week on The Changelog we’re continuing our Maintainer Month series by taking to you back to the hallway track of The Linux Foundation’s Open Source Summit North America 2023 in Vancouver, Canada. Today’s anthology episode features: Stormy Peters (VP of Communities at GitHub), Dr. Dawn Foster (Director of Open Source Community Strategy at VMware), and Angie Byron (Drupal Core Product Manager and Community Director at Aiven).
Special thanks to our friends at GitHub for sponsoring us to attend this conference as part of Maintainer Month.
The files & folders of Go projects
Return guests Ben Johnson & Chris James join Mat & Kris to talk about the files and folders of your Go projects, big and small. Does the holy grail exist, of the perfect structure to rule them all? Or are we doomed to be figuring this out for the rest of our lives?
Controlled and compliant AI applications
You can’t build robust systems with inconsistent, unstructured text output from LLMs. Moreover, LLM integrations scare corporate lawyers, finance departments, and security professionals due to hallucinations, cost, lack of compliance (e.g., HIPAA), leaked IP/PII, and “injection” vulnerabilities.
In this episode, Chris interviews Daniel about his new company called Prediction Guard, which addresses these issues. They discuss some practical methodologies for getting consistent, structured output from compliant AI systems. These systems, driven by open access models and various kinds of LLM wrappers, can help you delight customers AND navigate the increasing restrictions on “GPT” models.
An API store for LLMs, DeviceScript, Nyxt: the hacker's browser, expectations debt & there's still no silver bullet
The Gorilla team is building an API store for LLMs, DeviceScript is Microsoft’s new TypeScript programming environment for microcontrollers, Nyxt is a hackable browser written in Lisp, Morgan Housel writes about expectations debt & I issue a gentle reminder to my fellow software engineers: there’s still no silver bullet.
