As the world’s largest certificate authority, Let’s Encrypt is a nonprofit project that makes the internet more secure and privacy-respecting for everyone who uses it. And they did it in just a little more than five years.


InfluxData Doubles Down on Developer and Customer Happiness With Kubernetes Deployment Model

The Kubernetes-powered cloud abstraction layer has made it possible to write a multi-tenant application that allows customers the flexibility to control their usage and costs in a way they couldn’t by provisioning their own infrastructure.


Disney uses Pytorch in Their Genome Project

Pytorch is used in an initiative to deeply annotate all Disney content and make it accessible at very granular levels to creatives. Miquel Farré is a senior technology manager at Disney, taking the lead on projects at the intersection of video technology, machine learning and web applications. In this talk, he speaks about the Genome project and talks more about this initiative.

The Linux Foundation Builds the Global Foundation for Open Source Enterprise Blockchain Technologies

The role of Hyperledger Foundation is to ensure the health and transparency of the community and all its projects, including managing the development cycle, software licensing, security audits, and provenance tracking for every line of code.


How Fledge, UC Davis and Opus One Create World-Class Wine in Safer Conditions

Learn how IIoT works with the wine industry, in this case study that outlines how Fledge is being used by UC Davis and Opus One to create a multi-node wireless sensor network for UC Davis Teaching and Research Winery, and Opus One’s facility. The system successfully measures the CO2 levels in a winery to ultimately reduce costs and create safer conditions for the wine and the workers.


Open Retail Initiative: Technology Collaboration to Drive Innovation in Retail

Loss detection in real time for self-checkout at point of sale for grocery or convenience stores. Using EdgeX Foundry to combine POS, RFID, Weight Scale and Computer Vision data all in a single pane of glass and use it to alert associates in real time. This demo showcases how to take advantage of data from sensors currently available in stores to create a better solution compared to using a single sensor (i.e. weight scale).


Paving the Way to Battle Climate Change: How Two Utilities Embraced Open Source to Speed Modernization of the Electric Grid

A case study of how two large European distribution and transmission systems operators, the Netherlands’ Alliander and France’s RTE, adopted and contributed to three significant LF Energy projects, SEAPATH, CoMPAS, and OpenSTEF so that their electrical substations can become more modular, interoperable, and scalable, and alleviate the challenges associated with less predictable renewable energy sources.

The FINOS Legend Studio Pilot: an Open Source Success Story in Financial Services

“Legend is an impressive technology with great potential for improving industry efficiency. We see tremendous potential for synergies between Legend and our own Morphir project, also open-sourced through FINOS, just last month. These contributions together validate the FINOS model of bringing industry competitors together to solve industry challenges.”


Why the T-Mobile Data Science and Analytics Team migrated to a Data Lakehouse on Delta Lake

This architecture allows a relatively simple infrastructure that will expose data at the speed of business. It allows the reading and writing of data without blocking and scales out linearly. Business partners can easily adopt advanced analytics and derive new insights, which promote innovation across disparate workstreams and solidify the decentralized approach to analytics taken by T-Mobile.


Amazon Ads Uses PyTorch and AWS Inferentia to Scale Models for Ads Processing

Our DL models, developed in PyTorch and deployed on Inferentia, sped up our ads analysis while cutting costs. Starting with our first explorations in DL, programming in PyTorch felt natural. Its user-friendly features helped smooth the course from our early experiments to the deployment of our multimodal ensembles. PyTorch lets us prototype and build models quickly, which is vital as our advertising service evolves and expands.


Tesla is Using PyTorch to Develop Full Self-Driving Capabilities for Its Vehicles, Including AutoPilot and Smart Summon

Hear from Andrej Karpathy on how Tesla is using PyTorch to develop full self-driving capabilities for its vehicles, including AutoPilot and Smart Summon.


With an eye toward standardization and security for its media brands, Verizon Media turned to cloud native

Moving services into containers and using Kubernetes as an acquisition platform “helped us to reduce duplication, standardize the way we build and deploy code, and increased our cluster utilization too. Security is now from the ground up. The developers don’t need to worry; by default, everything is secured.”


With Kubernetes, the U.S. Department of Defense is enabling DevSecOps on F-16s and battleships

Releases, which once took as long as 3 to 8 months, now can be achieved in one week. An authority to operate (ATO) for a cloud enclave can be obtained within one week, plus “we have a continuous ATO on the platform stack. Anytime it’s going to pass the gates, the software is automatically accredited. So you can push software multiple times a day.”


How Walmart brought unprecedented transparency to the food supply chain with Hyperledger Fabric

Walmart can now trace the origin of over 25 products from 5 different suppliers using a system powered by Hyperledger Fabric. The company plans to roll out the system to more products and categories in the near future.


Change Healthcare: 50 million transactions a day using Hyperledger Fabric

Implementing Hyperledger Fabric took just a couple of months. Since January 2018, the test network demonstrated the ability to process up to 50 million transactions a day—with throughput up to 550 transactions a second.


OpenJS In Action: How Wix Applied Multi-threading to Node.js and Cut Thousands of SSR Pods and Money

In Wix, as part of our sites’ Server-Side-Rendering architecture, we build and maintain the heavily used Server-Side-Rendering-Execution platform (aka SSRE). SSRE is a Node.js based multipurpose code execution platform, that’s used for executing React.js code written by front-end developers all across the company. Most often, these pieces of JS code perform CPU-intensive operations that simulate activities related to site rendering in the browser.
