Setting up environments in Kubernetes can be done in quite a few ways. You can use Helm, plain manifests, Kustomize and custom-built CLI tools. But what are you going to do after you’ve configured the environment? Read this post to find out how I used C# to write a custom operator in C# to manage my MLOps environment.

How to configure memory limits in WSL2

One of the downsides to building machine learning models is that you need quite a bit of power in your machine. I've just upgraded my home desktop that I use for side projects and experiments to 64GB of memory because it was clearly no longer up to the task. However, when I booted up my WSL linux distro, it couldn't get more than 32GB of memory. Time to figure out how to fix that! In this quick post I'm showing you how you can limit or increase the memory available to your WSL2 distributions. Let's go!

In the past weeks we've been working on a new computer vision project at Aigency. As part of the project we have to process images using OpenCV image filters. This is a rather tedious process that takes a lot of time, so we made a nice workflow for it. In this blog post I'll show you how we used Prefect and Ray to build a scalable image processing workflow.

How to set up CUDA and PyTorch in Ubuntu 22.04 on WSL2

Working with machine-learning code in Windows can be quite a hassle. Often I run into problems with my tools not working properly on Windows. Recently, I even decided to convert my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 for the time being. Which is really nice for data sciency stuff, but not great for my Powerpoint and Excel since LibreOffice sucks big time. Needless to say, I needed another solution. Especially for my deep learning setup. In this quick post I'll show you how I configured my Ubuntu 22.04 installation on Windows 11 to run CUDA and PyTorch.

DVC is a data versioning tool that is designed to make it easier to work with data for machine-learning projects. It integrates with git so that you can easily keep track of your data files and track changes to them over time. It also allows you to easily share data files between different projects and collaborators. In this post I'll show you how you can start using DVC in your ML project.

How to deploy Airflow with Kubernetes and GIT

When I started working on MLOps a couple of years ago I ran into Azure Machine Learning first, because that's what the community around me was using. Turns out, it's not the only product out there. I already knew this, but I Ignored other products because we were happy with Azure ML at the time. This may sound like I'm no longer happy with Azure ML and want to move away. But that's not what this is about. I think you should always explore other technology options from time to time. That's why I'm trying out Airflow on Kubernetes.
