Geek Reading November 16, 2015

Microsoft starts our week with their open source release of the Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit for big data. They really need to work on naming things, Google has TensorFlow and Microsoft has DMLT, it just does not sound exciting. On Made of Bugs, they talk about what MongoDB got right. This is an interesting post because they are not really trying to defend it but they do give you some interesting bits to think about. DaedTech has a very interesting post on promoting people and how it affects your culture. This is hugely important for smaller companies because the people you promote or reward really do define who you are as a company.
