Go-CoNLLU – Some Much Needed Machine Learning Support in Go

data has a better idea - machine learning golang

Python is commonly seen as the AI/ML language, but is often a dull blade due to unsafe typing and being slow, like really slow. Many popular natural language processing toolkits only have Python APIs, and we want to see that change. At Nuvi, we use Go for the majority of our data processing tasks because … Read more Go-CoNLLU – Some Much Needed Machine Learning Support in Go

Using Concurrent Subscribers – RabbitMQ in Python (pika)

rabbit and python

It’s a fairly common scenario to subscribe to a Rabbit queue and process messages before acknowledging receipt. The pika package for dealing with RabbitMQ in Python however is only single-threaded out of the box. If we want to make a network or database call before each acknowledgment our subscribers can get really slow. Waiting on … Read more Using Concurrent Subscribers – RabbitMQ in Python (pika)

Connecting To RabbitMQ In Golang

RabbitMQ is a message broker that’s great for pub-sub systems in a micro-services architecture. At my current day job, we use RabbitMQ in our data ingest pipeline. All the services are written in Go, and they all push data through hundreds of RabbitMQ queues. Let’s take a look at how to efficiently publish and subscribe … Read more Connecting To RabbitMQ In Golang

Announcing Go-TinyTime, Go-TinyDate’s Sister Package

time.Time is the perfect choice for most cases, it even comes in the standard library! The problem is that the time.Time{} struct uses more than 24 bytes of memory under most conditions. Go-TinyTime solves this problem by restricting the available dates to the range between 1970 – 2106, and only supporting UTC timezones. This brings … Read more Announcing Go-TinyTime, Go-TinyDate’s Sister Package

I Wrote Go-TinyDate, The Missing Golang Date Package

time.Time makes dealing with dates and times in Go a breeze, and it even comes bundled in the standard library! However, a time.Time{} struct uses more than 24 bytes of memory under most conditions, and I’ve run into situations where I need to store millions of them in memory, but all I really needed was … Read more I Wrote Go-TinyDate, The Missing Golang Date Package

Is Open-Source Cryptography Really Secure?

By Lane Wagner – @wagslane on Twitter The purpose of cryptography is to keep information private, and the purpose of open-source is to make code public… So we shouldn’t open source our cryptography algorithms right? I’ve been asked this several times by multiple people so I figured it is a subject worth addressing. Many developers seem to … Read more Is Open-Source Cryptography Really Secure?

How Percolate Queries in Elasticsearch Make Alerting a Breeze

Once upon a time, a company I worked for had a problem: We had thousands of messages flowing through our data pipeline each second, and we want to be able to send email and SMS alerts to ours users when messages matching specific criteria were seen. The first attempt at an alerting system utilized PipelineDB. … Read more How Percolate Queries in Elasticsearch Make Alerting a Breeze
