1.  Install window awnings
Not only will they give yourself some added personality, but they'll lower your utility bills. After all, awnings will prevent tons of sunlight from getting into your house. So, during those scorching summer months, the inside of your home won't get excessively hot! And luckily, window awnings can be as unique as you are. Because they come in a variety of different colors and fabrics, it's easy to find a look that matches your décor and your personality! Best of all – installing window awnings isn't particularly difficult. As long as you've got a few basic tools (like a cordless drill, a level, and a tape measure), you'll be good to go.

2.  Change your light bulbs
No this isn't the start of some lame joke ("How many homeowners does it take to change a light bulb?"). Instead, you can use newer, dimmer light bulbs to create a whole new vibe. That's because brighter bulbs create a harsher look. By replacing your old bulbs with lower-wattage bulbs, you can totally transform your home – without spending much money or using any tools!

3.  Replace your cabinet doors with glass
If you want to give your kitchen a more open, airy look, you don't need to knock down walls or start painting. Instead, unscrew those old wooden cabinet doors and install new glass ones in their place! Depending on how many cabinets you have, this will only take a few hours. Of course, now you'll have to take extra care to keep the insides of your cabinets neat and tidy. However, the open feeling it will create will be well worth it!

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
