SQL Snippets - Crowdsourcing SQL Queries

  A curated collection of helpful and reusable SQL snippets sounds like a really good resource to know about and to contribute to. In  SQLBolt - Learn SQL The Interactive Way  I highlighted an interactive resource for learning the basics of SQL. Now I've found a way for you to store and share your own snippets of SQL code and find useful code to use without re-inventing it.   As you work with SQL day by day you'll accumulate a hefty amount of SQL code.  when just maybe you've written a state of the art query that you are eager to share with your colleagues or the rest of the world.That raises two questions:where do you store that snippet for clean and easy retrieval and afterwards how do you share it with the world? full article on

Program Deep Learning on the GPU with Triton

  Triton is a new, Python-like, language from OpenAI intended to ease programming for the GPU by providing an alternative to CUDA. NVIDIA's CUDA toolkit provides a development environment for speeding up computing applications by harnessing the power of GPUs, but it requires the code to be written code in C++. As C++ by default is not user-friendly and difficult to master,these properties subsequently rub off on the toolkit itself. Wouldn't it be easier to use a language that is user-friendly to write your GPU-accelerated deep learning applications in? Wish granted by Open AI which has announced: full article on
