Building Microservices For Quick Wins - An Insight - Part 1

Introduction Getting a quick win is hard because it needs multiple ideologies and practices to come together. It would ideally be a combination of least time to support the customer and to help the customer at the right point of their journey. By helping our customers to do the above, we help our products to grow steadily. Microservices can be likened to fast acting customer support, where we are building things in a faster and leaner way. Let’s talk about why an organization would need microservices in the first place.
Why Microservices? As a first hand believer of picking the right tools for the right jobs, I would caution the reader that Microservices might not be a good fit for all organizations. You will have to take a stock of the needs, the pros and cons of an architecture style and then take a decision to either migrate or start building through the specific architecture. Microservices do help in a few things as the organization grows and it helps the product to be modulariz…

What's next to Conversational AI, Conversational Bots, Chatbots? Is it Conscious Bots?

This is an personal opinion essay from Jey Geethan about chatbots and its future.
Pre-Introduction Chatbots are programmatically independent software engines which mimic the way that consumers talk to a person and answer them in a appropriate ways - This could be the simplest way in which you can describe them. Also, you can imagine them to be a situation where instead of you talking to a real person over chat, social media, phone or email, you are instead talking to a computer agent who replies on the human's behalf.

Introduction Chatbots are almost everywhere now. Every banking website that you see, you have a bot icon at their bottom right corner.

Social Media Marketing - 4 Ways You can Convert an User into a Subscriber

In 1940s, there was a shop called Tim's Burgers in one of the alley of the city of New York. Tim Crompton was the sole owner of the shop and made delicious and juicy burgers which was loved by all of his customers. The burgers are so delicious that it was mouth watering to see them come in a nice small plate as you sit inside the small but cozy place.
The customers were all known to him and nobody from outside his usual customer base were his regular visitors. Because of literally no marketing, and no new customers coming into his shop as time goes by, the burger shop died a slow death even though it was more tastier than the established McDonalds and KFCs.

Hackathons - Top 4 Reasons Why You Should Participate in Them

Then, one fine day, when I was driving my car mindlessly, not knowing how my minded drifted to the same topic, I was again deeply thinking about the ways that we could engage employees more in simpler ways and get them involved in more ideation and creation process. This, in my opinion, will create more avenues for the employees to gather real world problem and brainstorm its solutions and help them in their growth for their careers. I thought this could be a real problem that can be solved for the knowledge workers as a whole. Then suddenly there was a huge Volvo bus in front of me siding from…
