Levels, Hamel Husain on MLOps, Julia; ThDPTh #51

Three Data Point Thursday
Levels, Hamel Husain on MLOps, Julia; ThDPTh #51
By Sven Balnojan  • Issue #56 • View online
ThDPTh is an author-reader-friendly newsletter, and I believe that both you and I should be able to take time off to spend it with friends and family, instead of writing, managing Twitter, or reading work stuff. So don’t expect a holiday edition between the 16th — 30th of December.
Enjoy your time off! (Inspired by Gruntworks, and my kids)
I had a short Twitter discussion with GitHubs’ Hamel Husain this week about MLOps which inspired me to take a deeper look into his thoughts on the topic.
And I found an interesting tool along the way!
Read about it below…
I’m Sven, I collect “Data Points” to help understand & shape the future, one powered by data.

Svens Thoughts
If you only have 30 seconds to spare, here is what I would consider actionable insights for investors, data leaders, and data company founders.
- The programming language Julia is becoming a real thing. 1–2 years ago, the language was already strong but didn’t have the ecosystem to compare to e.g. Python. In 2022, this might change. At least it seems to be worth a look.
- MLOps is a real thing. MLOps is a cry stemming from a simple problem. The machine learning infrastructure, the tooling so to say that is needed to accomplish a task is still lightyears behind the tooling for software engineering. But MLOps tools are starting to grow like weeds in the data space.
- Open doesn’t mean open-source, openness is the key. Levels is a very interesting company in a space with hardware, where open-source isn’t as easy to implement as in the software space. Levels still are trying to be 100% open and leverage that, just like COSS companies to their advantage.
