This week I come across a tool call LocalAI. I always curious how to replicate OpenAI, have them run locally and this LocalAI is the answer, bill itself as free, Open Source OpenAI alternative. Self-hosted, community-driven and local-first. Drop-in replacement for OpenAI running on consumer-grade hardware. No GPU required. Runs ggml, gguf, GPTQ, onnx, TF compatible models: llama, llama2, rwkv, whisper, vicuna, koala, cerebras, falcon, dolly, starcoder. It defs live up to its hype with 12k+ stars on Github. Super easy to get started.
Using AWK and R to parse 25tb
Knowing tools like awk, sed helps immensively when need to process text based log file fast. AWK in itself is a whole programing language. Lets follow this journy of bringing the query time and cost down from 8 minutes and $20 to a tenth of a second and less than a penny,
What is in that .git directory?
Well, I think most of you reading this blog use git more or less on a daily basis, but have you ever looked into what is in the .git folder that git creates? Let’s explore it together and understand what is going on in there.

BPFAgent: eBPF for Monitoring at DoorDash
Metrics, logs, and traces provide vital information. But these signals almost entirely rely on application-level instrumentation, which can leave gaps or conflicting semantics across different systems. DoorDash decided to seek potential solutions that could provide a more complete and unified picture of their networking topology
A step by step notion note of Kynd, explain how to design and implement a fluid simulation. Very detail at every step, together with codepen to run and follow. You will learn a lot follow this
