chrome extension
Experimenting with chrome
Force-enable dark mode in Chrome

Just stumbled over a chrome hack - enforce dark mode for every website:

chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark

Using

Enabled with selective inversion of non-image elements

shows every website in a slick dark mode and with whole new experiences. Worth to try!

Created an NFT
Launched our own crypto coin
New NFTs up - 4paws and 1bark

I'm a crypto believer - DeFi is the evolution for our finance system, and it will be the replacement as soon as altcoins move to stablecoins. I think from now in 10 years we will have DeFi as normal payment methods, among traditional FIAT.

I also created a own meme token, just to explore how it works and what would be needed to develop and built the infra to launch a coin, like mining pool, block explorer and wallets.

I also play around with NFT - here is my newest collection:

NFTs open a whole new world for art, the artist is now in full control about his work, and the next big disruption comes along for a financial strong market.

Apache Wayang now officially supports Apple M1 architecture. And of course our AI platform Scalytics supports M1, too ;) We back-ported some of our code we used there.

Presented at ApacheCon
Apache Wayang at ASF Apache at home 2021

We presented Apache Wayang at the '21 Apache @Home conference, and the talk was highly appreciated. Many thanks to the conference team - the organisation was awesome, everything worked and the audience was brilliant.

In the case you couldn't make it to join remotely, here's the talk:

What is Apache Wayang?
Apache Wayang is a system designed to fully support cross-platform data processing: It enables users to run data analytics over multiple data processing platforms. For this, it provides an abstraction on top of existing platforms in order to run data analytic tasks on top of any set of platforms. As a result, users can focus on the logics of their applications rather on the intricacies of the underlying platforms.

Much better, the core team is also the leading team at Scalytics ;)

open source project infinimesh

Portable cloud-native AIoT platform, able to handle 10k + devices from your laptop (okay, when this laptop would be 24/7 available). We finished testing with the major public cloud providers, and everything runs smooth. 
infinimesh now runs also perfectly in docker swarm, too!

Yeah, and just finished to redesign our project website of infinimesh:
