Building applications with large language models is the coolest thing around right now. At least if my LinkedIn feed is to believe. However, I keep getting a feeling of Deja Vu about this. I’ve been here before. Indeed, the models are new, but how we deploy and test them feels somewhat familiar. Someone must have changed the matrix. In this post, we’ll look at building a generative AI application using a large language model. We’ll focus on how to approach the project from an operations and development process perspective and learn what’s new in building LLM applications and what’s not.
