NoSQL database vendor MongoDB will enable users to deploy a distributed MongoDB database across AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure via a multicloud clusters capability being added to the company’s MongoDB Atlas cloud database service.

The multicloud support lets users take advantage of unique capabilities and the reach of the different cloud providers while also providing for uptime assurances.

Starting today, MongoDB Atlas, which is available in 79 AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure regions worldwide, now supports

Build custom models with Azure Machine Learning Designer

Machine learning is an important part of modern application development, replacing much of what used to be done using a complex series of rules engines, and expanding coverage to a much wider set of problems. Services like Azure’s Cognitive Services provide prebuilt, pretrained models that support many common use cases, but many more need custom model development.

Going custom with ML

How do we go about building custom machine learning models? You can start at one end using statistical analysis languages like R to build and validate models, where you’ve already got a feel for the underlying structure of your

It’s Monday morning standup, and 22 faces spread across your screen on yet another Zoom call. The focus is on the day’s tasks, as well as looking at problems that need solving.

Call of Duty’s Halloween event has a Zombie royale and horror crossovers

Warzone players will get to experience Verdansk at night, and it’ll come with “more than a few Halloween-themed frights” — and I’d be content with that, to be honest. But Modern Warfare‘s also getting a fright-themed coat of paint. My favorite new addition is that, if you get three kills in a single life, your operator’s head will turn into
