TECH

OpenAI is releasing a new flagship generative AI model called GPT-4o, set to roll out “iteratively” across the company’s developer and consumer-facing products over the next few weeks.

The Biden administration announced Monday that Polar Semiconductor will receive up to $120 million in federal funds to expand its chip manufacturing facility in Minnesota. The funding stems from the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act, which Biden signed into law in August 2022 to strengthen the U.S. supply of semiconductors.

PROGRAMMING AND DESIGN

Programmers hate deleting things; we’ve all felt that feeling in the pit our stomach when we realise that thing we deleted was really deleted, and on the other hand the security of deleting some unused code, safe in the knowledge that it’s still really there in version control. In the sphere of databases, this terror of deleting things leads people to advocate soft deletion: instead of really deleting a record, you add a field which marks the record as deleted, and you treat any record marked in that way as if it were deleted.

Through my years of building services, the RESTful API has been my primary go-to. However, even though REST has its merits, that doesn’t mean it’s the best approach for every use case. Over the years, I’ve learned that, occasionally, there might be better alternatives for certain scenarios. Sticking with REST just because I’m passionate about it—when it’s not the right fit—only results in tech debt and a strained relationship with the product owner.
