Houdini and the Future of CSS [State of the Web]

Von | 09. September 2019|

Houdini's goal is to enable web developers to extend the capabilities of CSS by providing APIs that make it possible to create custom CSS features and modify the browser rendering pipeline. This article will give you a brief overview of its specifications and goals together with the current state of development.

CSS is the styling language used to define the appearance of web contents. As web developers we rely on the existing implementation of CSS features across major brows

State of the Web September 2019: Start here

Von | 09. September 2019|

In these episode of our State of the Web we'll dive into the topics CSS Houdini, JAMstack and Web Components. Therefor we created a compressed, easy-to-read summary with some practical code snippets. We hope you enjoy!

We’re developers working on projects with technology we love, every day, keeping an eye on the ever-changing web eco system. New tools and libraries pop up ever

Multimodal Sequential Recommender Systems

Von | 27. August 2019|

Sequential recommender systems are based on sequential user representations for a given user and sequence length. Each sequence consists of several items in temporal order. Sequential recommender systems aim at exploiting the temporal information that is hidden in the sequence of item interactions of the given user.

Since the invention of the internet, the availability and amount of information has increased steadily. Today we are facing problems of information overload and an ov

Turnilo: A Lightweight Frontend for Realtime Analytics Powered by Apache Druid

Von | 20. August 2019|

In this post, we introduce Turnilo, explain its configuration and usage and share our evaluation outcome. For completeness, we also provide a list of current alternatives.

We frequently help our customers implement data platforms on a grand scale: as a backend for user-facing applications, for business analytics or data science and mach

Digitize your Receipts using Computer Vision

Von | 13. August 2019|

In this article I describe the steps and approaches to image recognition for receipt digitalization using computer vision. This is the basic functionality behind apps such as Google Lens, Evernote, PaperScan and taggun.io.

“Would you like the receipt?”—It’s hard to say no to that. Not because you actually want it (you may even throw it in the trash before exiting the store), but because

Kotlin Multiplatform for Clean Architecture

Von | 06. August 2019|

As mobile developers, we often rewrite the same logic in a different language, having to maintain two similar codebases for Android and iOS. Wouldn’t it be nice to write Kotlin once and compile it everywhere? Enter Kotlin Multiplatform, enabling us to write the same code for the JVM as well as LLVM!

When securing K8s based environments, many different issues arise. And there are even more tools that try to tackle these issues. Don't waste your time searching and checkout these open source Kubernetes Security Tools instead!

When securing K8s based environments many different issues arise—from checking the actual cluster configuration to configuring K8s features like Network Policies, Pod

Developer Learnings from Using CosmosDB with .NET Core

Von | 22. Juli 2019|

CosmosDB is a global database in the Azure universe. In this blog I want to look at its different APIs: the SDK, Entity Framework Core and the MongoDB API.

Spinnaker vs. Argo CD vs. Tekton vs. Jenkins X: Cloud-Native CI/CD

Von | 15. Juli 2019|

With tools like Kubernetes becoming essential, there is high demand for cloud-native CI/CD. Many tools try to offer solutions―in this blog post, we’ll have a look at four of them: Spinnaker, Argo CD, Tekton Pipelines and Jenkins X. We introduce their inner workings and how they help you to perform CI/CD in the cloud.

With tools like Kubernetes becoming essential for most modern cloud deployments and companies adopting their take on DevOps culture, there is high demand for cloud-na

Summarizing Long Texts with Seq2Seq Neural Networks

Von | 08. Juli 2019|

We extend state-of-the-art  sequence-to-sequence neural networks for summarization of long text across windows. By learning transitions, we are able to process arbitrarily long texts during inference.

This blog post describes my master thesis "Abstractive Summarization for Long Texts". We’ve extended existing state-of-the-art  sequence-to-sequence (Seq2Seq) neural net

Augmented Reality to-go mit ARCore und Poly für Android

Von | 01. Juli 2019|

Im Rahmen meines Praxissemesters habe ich mit ARCore eine Android-Anwendung entwickelt, mit der 3D-Modelle im Raum platziert und dargestellt werden können. Hier stelle ich den Entwicklungsprozess vor.

Ansätze für AR auf Mobilgeräten sind kein neuer Trend, in den letzten Jahren hat sich jedoch einiges getan: Durch technische Innovationen wie bessere Kameras und leis
