Going Global – a Localization Case Study at Cloudflare

Today Cloudflare serves nearly 10% of all global internet requests and more than 80% of our customers are based outside of the United States. Cloudflare is rapidly growing and there is nothing more important to us than being able to better serve our users across the world beyond our global offices in San Francisco, Austin, Champaign, Washington D.C., New York, London, and Singapore. Earlier this year, we launched a team to focus on global expansion and growth. In June, we…

US invests $17 million in laser tech

The U.S. Defense Department is investing $17 million in high-powered laser technology that has the potential for practical uses on the battlefield, from destroying enemy drones to disrupting communication systems. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich announced the funding during a news conference Wednesday at a Boeing lab in Albuquerque, where many of the innovations needed to track targets and control the intensity of the high-powered lasers were developed. A member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, the New Mexico Democrat…

Creating Video Sharing on LinkedIn: How the Engineering Team Perfected Cross-office, Cross-time zone Collaboration

Once the engineering leads came to a shared understanding of how the individual systems would need to interact with one another, the teams developed, prioritized, and scoped their own roadmap for the features and systems for which they were responsible. This first step in planning allowed smaller groups of the right stakeholders to come together as needed to work out some of the more complex integration points. For example, developing multi-part upload functionality to make uploads faster and more resilient…

Prana energy proliferated via gayatri meditation

‘Gaya’ means Prana or vital force and ‘Tri’ means to liberate. ‘Gayate pranaha iti gayatri’ which means that which liberates Prana is called Gayatri. Trana means to liberate or free. Prana is a bound conscious principle to the body, senses and their objects. By liberating Prana from this bondage one realizes one’s divine conscious state. In this manner the entire science of Prana dwells within Super Energy Gayatri. Previously those Extrasensory Potentials or ESP discussed can be attained via Gayatri…

JARVIS: Helping LinkedIn Navigate its Source Code

Relevance Relevance is a very important piece for any search system, and our codesearch is no exception. It is very important to show files at the top that users are most likely to open. Relevance for us involves assigning a score to every retrieved document, ranking them based on this score, and then returning the top K results. Score assignment is the most critical part for our relevance. We have multiple types of features, and the final score is a…

Self-powered paper-based ‘SPEDs’ may lead to new medical-diagnostic tools — ScienceDaily

A new medical-diagnostic device made out of paper detects biomarkers and identifies diseases by performing electrochemical analyses — powered only by the user’s touch — and reads out the color-coded test results, making it easy for non-experts to understand. “You could consider this a portable laboratory that is just completely made out of paper, is inexpensive and can be disposed of through incineration,” said Ramses V. Martinez, an assistant professor of industrial and biomedical engineering at Purdue University. “We hope…

Researchers devise app to protect PINs and passwords — ScienceDaily

Every ATM or smartphone user can attest to the discomfort of having a stranger standing close enough to observe a financial transaction — and potentially note a PIN or account number. Now researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering have announced a first-of-its-kind application to combat such “shoulder-surfing,” whether in person or via a building’s video camera. Nasir Memon, NYU Tandon professor of computer science and engineering, explained that the technology, called “IllusionPIN,” deploys a hybrid-image keyboard that appears…

💚 → 👏 👏 👏 – Medium Engineering

A product engineering tale Back in the heady days of early July 2017, I was tasked with adapting the Medium 💚 system into something that allowed variable input. With the binary 💚 button, users could tell us when they liked a story, but we wanted to know how much they liked it, in comparison with other stories. In theory, this new data would allow us to surface truly good content over shiny clickbait. It was also the first piece of…

A disposable alcohol test reveals whether you are fit to drive within two minutes

The Finnish company Goodwiller has launched a rapid alcohol test it has developed in collaboration with VTT that measures the blood alcohol content from saliva. A disposable test fits easily into a small wallet and reveals the user’s fitness to drive within couple of minutes. Goodwiller Oy’s Promilless test was developed in cooperation with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The test is based on the use of printed biochemical ingredients. “On the basis of a saliva sample, the…
