The Domino Effect


Domino is a small rectangular block used as a gaming object. Its curved or straight lines can be used to create elaborate designs that look impressive when they come tumbling down.

Dominos are also stood up to form pyramids, hearts, circles and other shapes that resemble the logo of various brands and events. They’re also used in science experiments, where they’re placed on a surface and then knocked over to reveal what’s underneath. The first domino that falls starts a chain reaction in which the rest of the pieces topple one by one. This is known as the Domino Effect.

Lily Hevesh fell in love with dominoes when she was 9 years old. Her grandparents had the classic 28-pack, and she loved arranging the tiny rectangles in curved or straight lines. She would flick the first domino and watch the whole display come tumbling down. Hevesh eventually started posting her domino creations on YouTube, and now she is a professional domino artist. She’s paid to design domino sets for movies, TV shows and events. She recently created a design for pop star Katy Perry using more than 7,000 dominoes.

Hevesh’s success is a testament to her dedication and skill. She practices every day and tries to push herself out of her comfort zone when creating her designs. She often makes test versions of each section of an installation before putting them all together, and she films the tests in slow motion so she can see if they work as intended. She explains that the process of building a domino set is similar to writing a story. She has to know the end result, but she also needs to be flexible enough to adjust things when they don’t work out.

Dominoes are also a symbol of how one action can lead to other actions that have unexpected consequences. This is a good reminder to be careful about the way you treat others, and to always think two moves ahead of what might happen next.

In data science, the Domino effect applies to how your code and data interact. Code and data need to be centralized, and it’s important to be able to trace results back to the code and data that generated them. Domino lets you do all of this, and it provides self-service access for your team.

You can run Domino on your own infrastructure, in a public or hybrid cloud environment, or in our fully managed service. It works with many different languages, IDEs and tools. Our catalog lists all the integrations we have tested and verified, and we’re always adding more. Use the Domino console to manage your model, or connect it to your favorite tools through a simple API call. Domino also offers a lightweight web form to enable direct human consumption of models, so internal stakeholders can run their own parameter values whenever they need to without bothering you. This allows you to scale how you support your team and speed up project delivery.
