Netflix at Spark+AI Summit 2018 – Netflix TechBlog – Medium

By Faisal Siddiqi A glimpse at Spark usage for Netflix Recommendations Apache Spark has been an immensely popular big data platform for distributed computing. Netflix has been using Spark extensively for various batch and stream-processed workloads. A substantial list of use cases for Spark computation come from the various applications in the domain of content recommendations and personalization. A majority of the machine learning pipelines for member personalization run atop large managed Spark clusters. These models form the basis of…

DroneDeploy and Cloudflare Workers

Images courtesty of DroneDeploy When we launched Workers a few months ago, much of the focus was on use cases surrounding websites running on origins that needed extra oomph. With Workers you can easily take a site, introduce a raft of personalization capabilities, A/B test changes or even aggregate a set of API responses around a range of services. In short by layering in Cloudflare Workers we can take origin websites and do transformational things. One of the joys of…

Technology enables soft contact lenses to monitor glucose, medical conditions and deliver medications

Purdue University researchers combined a commercial soft contact lens with an ultrathin conformal sensor circuit. Credit: Purdue University Purdue University researchers have developed soft contact lenses that not only correct vision but also can monitor glucose and medical conditions and be used for ocular pain relief or drug delivery. Sensors or other technology previously couldn’t be used for soft contact lenses because the technology required a rigid, planar surface incompatible with the soft, curved shape of a contact lens. …

Networking @Scale 2018 recap | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

Recently, we hosted more than 500 engineers at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California for our fourth Networking @Scale conference. As with previous Networking @Scale conferences, we look for operators of some of the largest “scale” networks and ask them to share their on-the-ground experiences in designing, building, and operating the networks. This year, speakers from IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, Blizzard, and Facebook walked through the entire OSI networking stack, from layer 0 to layer 7. We also hosted…

Working at a tech company made me hunger for engineering skills, so I resolved to learn programming. My friends were shocked. One of them, upon hearing my plans for a career transition, recommended a book called If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript. “If any programming book is going to speak to a…
