Virtualization with Containers or Docker does not have hypervisor, we have supporting files and libraries which create runtime environment and deeply coupled with operating system kernel. This provides an environment for apps to run directly without having to use hypervisor or guest operating system. This makes containers lightweight and portable.
OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers.
simply another process on your machine that has been isolated from all other processes on the host machine.
Containers are created from the images and run the actual applications. Container wrap up entire code. we can think of a container as…
MapReduce introduced a new parallel programming paradigm based on functional programming for large-scale processing of data distributed over GFS and Bigtable.
Alan Kay’s “Simple things should be simple and complex things should be possible”
Apache Spark is a unified engine designed for large-scale distributed data processing on-premises in data centers or in the cloud.
Spark provides in-memory storage for intermediate computations, making it much faster than Hadoop MapReduce.
Buddha’s own words, “ the transcendental wisdom (jnana) of omniscience has its root in compassion, and arises from a cause — the altruistic thought, the awakening mind of bodhicitta and the perfection of skillful means (upaya).”

Assembly is among one of the oldest tools in a computer-programmer’s toolbox. It is also one of the closest forms of communication that humans can engage with a computer. With assembly, the programmer can precisely track the flow of data and execution in a program. Assembly code are translated by an assembler into machine language which gets loaded into memory and executed.

Abstraction: Abstraction is a way of thinking about a piece of software which emphasizes the key details without distracting us with all the complexity.
State: one of the most important types of abstractions, state. Any computer has two states, it’s on, or it’s off.
Modularity: The idea that applications are built out of lots of simple elements or modules that work together.
Application: The executable code file is the core of the application, but it interacts with a lot of services such as the operating system, code libraries that add functionality and resource files
