Petrojam’s Graduate Internship Programme will be officially launched on February 5 by Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (STEM), Hon. Phillip Paulwell.The programme, to be launched at the Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston, will give Jamaica’s brightest young scientists and those interested in the field, an opportunity to gain valuable hands on experience in the field.According to the Minister, the project provides an excellent platform to bolster the long-term goals of Petrojam, by expanding and upgrading its operations and having a cadre of competent scientists with the requisite skill set to choose from.“As a Ministry, we are focusing on Science and Technology and innovation, and we have to continue to play a leading role in the training component of our people. This [programme] is a part of the training that we’re putting in place, which will enable us to have our people properly trained. It will also enable us, in our other objectives, of finding oil and gas in and around Jamaica, because they will have the competence,” he told JIS News.He explained that persons to be chosen for the programme come from all across Jamaica, and have demonstrated certain levels of aptitude and possess the requisite attitude, adding that the Ministry wants to encourage them to remain in Jamaica to enhance their skills and deploy those skills within the employ of the Government and in particular, Petrojam.

“We believe that the key to enabling cloud native applications, is to provide true portability and communication across disparate cloud infrastructure.”Mark Hinkle, co-founder of TriggerMesh Yesterday, TriggerMesh- the open source multi-cloud service management platform- announced their open source project ‘Knative Lambda Runtime’ (TriggerMesh KLR). KLR will bring AWS Lambda serverless computing to Kubernetes which will enable users to run Lambda functions on Knative-enabled clusters and serverless clouds. Amazon Web Services’ ( AWS) Lambda for serverless computing can only be used on AWS and not on another cloud platform. TriggerMesh KLR changes the game completely as now, users can avail complete portability of Amazon Lambda functions to Knative native enabled clusters, and Knative enabled serverless cloud infrastructure “without the need to rewrite these serverless functions”. Fun fact: KLR is pronounced as ‘clear’ Features of TriggerMesh Knative Lambda Runtime Knative is a Google Cloud-led Kubernetes-based platform which can be used to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads. KLR are Knative build templates that can be used to runan AWS Lambda function in a Kubernetes cluster as is in a Knative powered Kubernetes cluster (installed with Knative). KLR enables serverless users to move functions back and forth between their Knative and AWS Lambda. AWS Lambda Custom Runtime API in combination with the Knative Build system makes deploying KLR possible. Serverless users have shown a positive response to this announcement, with most of them excited for this news. Kelsey Hightower, developer advocate, Google Cloud Platform, calls this news ‘dope’ and we can understand why! His talk at KubeCon+CloudNativeCon 2018 had focussed on serveless and its security aspects. Now that AWS Lambda functions can be run on Google’s Knative, this marks a new milestone for TriggerMesh. It would be interesting to see how this moulds the path to a Kubernetes hybrid-cloud model. Head over to TriggerMesh’s official blog for more insights to this news.
