  1. The Danger of Atomic Operations

    Most engineers reach for atomic operations in an attempt to produce some lock-free mechanism. Furthermore, programmers enjoy the intellectual puzzle of using atomic operations. Both of these lead to clever implementations which are almost always ill-advised and often incorrect.

  2. What an SBOM can do for you
  3. sched_ext: a BPF-extensible scheduler class (Part 1)

    sched_ext allows you to write and run your custom process scheduler optimized for your target workloads and hardware architectures using BPF programs.

  4. sched_ext: scheduler architecture and interfaces (Part 2)
  5. Leveraging AI for efficient incident response

    We’ve streamlined our investigations through a combination of heuristic-based retrieval and large language model (LLM)-based ranking to provide AI-assisted root cause analysis. During backtesting, this system has achieved promising results: 42% accuracy in identifying root causes for investigations at their creation time related to our web monorepo.
