exactly the data you need, all in one place

Today we’re excited to announce a powerful and flexible new way to explore your Cloudflare metrics and logs, with an API conforming to the industry-standard GraphQL specification. With our new GraphQL Analytics API, all of your performance, security, and reliability data is available from one endpoint, and you can select exactly what you need, whether it’s one metric for one domain or multiple metrics aggregated for all of your domains. You can ask questions like “How many cached bytes have…

ReCNet: Deep Learning based Cross-class Recommendations at Wayfair

Introduction The main objective of our recommender systems is to narrow down Wayfair’s vast catalogue to assist customers in finding exactly the products they want. Most recommendation algorithms leverage a customer’s browsing history, which includes various types of interactions with products, such as clicks, add-to-cart actions, and orders. The diversity of each customer’s browsing history makes the task of fully leveraging the information it contains quite difficult. One of the challenges with a diverse browsing history is determining whether we…

Flipping the script on novel cancer therapy leads to insights into lupus — ScienceDaily

In the last decade, scientists discovered that blocking a key regulator of the immune system helped unleash the body’s natural defenses against several forms of cancer, opening up a new era of cancer immunotherapy. Now Yale scientists have essentially flipped this script and found that when impaired a molecularly similar regulator can cause the damaging immune system attacks on skin and organs that are the hallmark of the autoimmune disease lupus, they report Dec. 11 in the journal Science Translational…

Continuous integration and deployment with Bazel

Dropbox server-side software lives in a large monorepo. One lesson we’ve learned scaling the monorepo is to minimize the number of global operations that operate on the repository as a whole. Years ago, it was reasonable to run our entire test corpus on every commit to the repository. This scheme became untenable as we added more tests. One obvious inefficiency is the pointless and wasteful execution of tests that can’t possibly be affected by a particular change. We addressed this…

An Engineer Among the Stars

Dick Richards, Mission Commander of STS-64 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery in September 1994, reviewing flight data. Graduating seniors at the College of Engineering’s 2019 Commencement ceremony in the Hearnes Center Dec. 13 will hear from a Mizzou alumnus who has seen the Earth from a unique vantage point: 200 to 330 miles above the surface on the planet aboard the U.S. Space Shuttle. Captain Dick Richards, U.S. Navy-retired, earned his BS in chemical engineering from Mizzou in 1969 and…

NASA’s treasure map for water ice on Mars — ScienceDaily

NASA has big plans for returning astronauts to the Moon in 2024, a stepping stone on the path to sending humans to Mars. But where should the first people on the Red Planet land? A new paper published in Geophysical Research Letters will help by providing a map of water ice believed to be as little as an inch (2.5 centimeters) below the surface. Water ice will be a key consideration for any potential landing site. With little room to…

a Slack proxy and Slack bot framework

We’re pleased to announce the initial open source release of omnibot: a Slack proxy, and Slack bot framework. We’re also releasing a python receiver library and a simple example service, eventbot, to show how the proxy works end-to-end. Over time Slack has added a number of APIs for writing integrations. The Real Time Messaging (RTM) API was the primary API in the past, and now the Event Subscription and Web APIs are recommended; however, full Slack integration functionality is spread…

Tech Transfer Leads to Reactor for Medical Isotopes

A team of Georgia Tech and Ohio State University researchers has developed a soft polymer material, called magnetic shape memory polymer, that uses magnetic fields to transform into a variety of shapes. The material could be used in new applications ranging from antennas that change frequencies on the fly to gripper arms for delicate or heavy objects. The material is a mixture of three different ingredients: two types of magnetic particles—one for inductive heat and one with strong magnetic attraction—and…

New tools to monitor your server and avoid downtime

When your server goes down, it’s a big problem. Today, Cloudflare is introducing two new tools to help you understand and respond faster to origin downtime — plus, a new service to automatically avoid downtime. The new features are: Standalone Health Checks, which notify you as soon as we detect problems at your origin server, without needing a Cloudflare Load Balancer. Passive Origin Monitoring, which lets you know when your origin cannot be reached, with no configuration required. Zero-Downtime Failover,…

Netflix Hack Day — Fall 2019 – Netflix TechBlog

Nostalgiflix is a chrome extension that transforms your Netflix web browser into an interactive TV time machine covering three decades (80’s, 90’s, and 00’s.) By dragging the UI slider around, you can view titles originally released within the selected year ( based on their historic box office and episode air dates.) More importantly you can also adjust the video filters in real-time to creatively downgrade the viewing experience, further enhancing the nostalgic effect. We think this feature could encourage our…
