A Chatbot with a Brain
1 hr 23 min
The September episode did arrive.... somewhat delayed, but it's worth the wait!!  We have NEW INTRO MUSIC by amazing recording artist Eric Barndollar.
We have a NEW PODCAST DEPLOYMENT SCRIPT which means the podcast timestamp will be correct and people won't have to hunt for our latest episodes.  Last
but not least, we have an AMAZING EPISODE where we interview Peter Voss, founder and CEO of aigo.ai and inventor of the term "Artificial General Intelligence",
to discuss chatbots and general AI.  Geeking out about AI may be my favorite thing to do on Earth, so I can't put in words how incredibly excited I am to
share this episode with everyone.

Episode 93. Not your Grandpa's Serialization Part DEUX!
We're back! and now we move to the new-fangled serialization and deserialization frameworks, starting with Protobufs! Google's contribution to the serialization space, Protobuf V3 makes it easy to create a very efficient on-the-wire serialized representation of objects, and then some. With the ability to have both backwards and forward compatible changes, protobufs is a great choice for transmitting information across services. But not to be outdone, @BobPaulin goes in and covers Thrift, which goes a step beyond than just serializing messages, but also takes care of the "Transport layer", adding the ability of doing Remote-procedure-calls! Imagine if instead of saying "I need to send a message to that service, and then the service can process it and send info back", you just said. "I want to call a method on that service with this parameters and get the results". Thrift exposes that functionality by letting you have an interface that you can just call in your client service, and it "magically" coordinates all the gnarly stuff to encode, transmit, execute, decode, and present your call. You don't even have to think (too deeply) about how it all happens. As long as you define your thrift objects, thrift methods, and Thrift transport, the framework will let you just think of methods to call! that's it! So in all, a very fun episode where we discover what the new types of serialization frameworks are up to. If you ever had to create a message, or ever had to annotate an object as Serializable, then do take a listen to this episode! FOLLOW US JavaPubHouse on twitter!
