Googlers created some of the fundamental components of containers, like cgroups, and we were an early adopter of containers for our internal systems.

In this post, we'll try running NumPy in a simple user-defined function which also takes advantage of PL/Python database access functions. The function will show a working example of how to easily convert a data table in Postgres to a NumPy array. ...
