New applications and features often require you to combine data that resides across multiple data stores, including relational and non-relational databases. Accessing, combining, replicating, and keeping this data up-to-date requires manual work and custom code that can take months of development time.
With AWS Glue Elastic Views, you can use familiar Structured Query Language (SQL) to quickly create a virtual table—a materialized view—from multiple different source data stores. AWS Glue Elastic Views copies data from each source data store and creates a replica in a target data store. AWS Glue Elastic Views continuously monitors for changes to data in your source data stores and provides updates to the materialized views in your target data stores automatically, ensuring data accessed through the materialized view is always up-to-date.

You can now package and deploy AWS Lambda functions as a container image of up to 10 GB. This makes it easy to build Lambda based applications using familiar container tooling, workflows, and dependencies. Just like functions packaged as ZIP archives, functions deployed as container images will benefit from AWS Lambda’s operational simplicity, automatic scaling with sub-second startup times, high availability, and native integrations with 140 AWS services. Customers can start building functions as container images by using either a set of AWS base images for Lambda, or by using one of their preferred community or enterprise images.

"Just days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed during an interview that he has moved to Texas, and less than two weeks after HP Enterprise, a spin-out of the iconic Silicon Valley company Hewlett-Packard, announced that it is separately moving to Texas, yet another of the Bay Area’s best-known brands — Oracle — is pulling up stakes and headed east to Texas, too."

Pyjion is a project to replace the core execution loop of CPython by transpiling CPython bytecode to ECMA CIL and then using the .NET 5 CLR to compile that into machine code. It then executes the machine-code compiled JIT frames at runtime instead of using the native execution loop of CPython.
Guido van Rossum on Twitter: "I decided that retirement was boring and have joined the Developer Division at Microsoft. To do what? Too many options to say! But it’ll make using Python better for sure (and not just on Windows :-). There’s lots of open source here. Watch this space." / Twitter
I’m wondering if they still asked you to submit a resume/cv
Yes they did, and I got interviewed by Kevin Scott and Anders Hejlsberg (and others). How cool is that. :-) (They also asked for my diploma from University?!)

React without JSX and Webpack @academind
AWS Lambda, the serverless platform, scales up to 10GB of memory and 6 vCPUs now and the minimum billing increment is now 1 millisecond (down from 100) which means huge savings for efficient functions. Lambda can also now support containers.

What Babelfish does is provide a translation layer for SQL Server’s proprietary SQL dialect (T-SQL) and communications protocol so that businesses can switch to AWS’ Aurora relational database at will (though they’ll still have to migrate their existing data). It provides translations for the dialect, but also SQL commands, cursors, catalog views, data types, triggers, stored procedures and functions.
The promise here is that companies won’t have to replace their database drivers or rewrite and verify their database requests to make this transition.
