Building a new IMDB: Internet Mince Pie Database

CC-BY-SA 2.0 image by Phil! Gold Since joining Cloudflare I’ve always known that as we grew, incredible things would be possible. It’s been a long held ambition to work in an organisation with the scale to answer a very controversial and difficult question. To do so would require a collection of individuals with a depth of experience, passion, dedication & above all collaborative spirit.

Research team develops novel program to make more cost effective runways

Credit: Texas A&M University An aircraft’s impact on the runway is likely the last thing to cross anyone’s mind when boarding a flight. The constant taking off and landing of aircraft throughout the day places stress on runway pavement, which needs to be in good condition to ensure the safety of the aircraft and its passengers. Thanks to a predictive model developed by a collaborative research team led by the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M, understanding how…

Top 9 Reasons To Outsource Software Testing

Software testing is an essential part of the development process. Thorough testing can verify your program’s performance and output before it gets to consumers, helping you maintain the quality of your products and your company’s reputation. However, it can be a challenge to decide how to go about the testing process. Do you complete the tests using in-house personnel? Should you outsource to an outside provider? As you consider which direction is best for your company, keep in mind these…

Video game system technology helping physical therapists, athletic trainers

Motion labs similar to the one pictured require space and can cost upward of $100,000. According to new studies from a MU research team, depth sensors found in video game technology can provide healthcare providers a portable and inexpensive option. Credit: Amy Pariss, University of Missouri Motion-based lab technology can help physical therapists, clinicians and athletic trainers analyze how we move—it also is very expensive. Some motion labs can cost upward of $100,000. Now, a team of University of Missouri…

The Glimmer Binary Experience | LinkedIn Engineering

Co-authors: Sarah Clatterbuck, Chad Hietala, and Tom Dale A bit over a year ago, Ember.js got a major overhaul. In a tight collaboration between LinkedIn engineers and the open source community, we replaced Ember’s rendering engine with a new library, Glimmer VM, that improved performance and significantly reduced the size of compiled templates. Glimmer treats Handlebars templates as a functional programming language and compiles them into a sequence of instructions that can be executed in the browser. These instructions, or…

Gleaning Insights from Uber’s Partner Activity Matrix with Genomic Biclustering and Machine Learning

At Uber, machine learning plays a central role in improving user experiences across our apps. Given the scale and scope of our business, we often need to think creatively about how we design these systems. For instance, when developing our partner activity matrix, a new tool for personalizing driver experiences based on aggregate usage trends, we found inspiration in a biomedical technique for visualizing genomes (genomic biclustering). Using biclustering, we can visualize diversity in driver partner patterns by expressing each…

CAA of the Wild: Supporting a New Standard

One thing we take pride in at Cloudflare is embracing new protocols and standards that help make the Internet faster and safer. Sometimes this means that we’ll launch support for experimental features or standards still under active development, as we did with TLS 1.3. Due to the not-quite-final nature of some of these features, we limit the availability at the onset to only the most ardent users so we can observe how these cutting-edge features behave in the wild. Some…
