Tutorial - Creating an Email Microservice with Typescript and Dapr

Once in a while a new project comes out that I am totally hyped about! Dapr is such a Project! In this article I would like to go in-depth on how we can quickly (< 10min!!!) create a Microservice that will send an email through a Microservice invocation mechanism!

Monitoring the Kubernetes Nginx Ingress Controller with Prometheus and Grafana

In a previous article I explained how we can set-up an Nginx Kubernetes Ingress Controller, but how can we now monitor this? This is what I would like to tackle in this article, on how we are able to utilize Prometheus and Grafana to start visualizing what is happening on our Ingress Controller.

Autonomously Landing a Lunar Lander with an Xbox Controller Robotic Arm - Part 2

In Part 1 I explained you how you can create a Robot Arm that can be mounted on an Xbox controller. In OpenAI Lunar Lander I then continued to see how we are able to train a lunar lander environment to land a lunar lander all by itself with a continuous action space.

Training the Continuous Lunar Lander with Reinforcement Learning, RLLib and PPO

For an upcoming blog post, I would like to have a robotic arm to land a Lunar Lander autonomously. In Part 1 I explained how we can build such a robotic arm already, but now we need to be able to go deeper into how we are able to train an environment in a simulation environment (before deploying it on a physical device).

Autonomously Landing a Lunar Lander with an Xbox Controller Robotic Arm - Part 1

Creating an Xbox Robot Arm is something that I've been wanting to do ever since I saw the post by Kevin Drouglazet who was able to utilize an Xbox Controller with an arm he created and was so friendly to publish the design files for (I am definitely not a hardware designer 😅) - thanks for that Kevin!
