Power On: Accelerating Uber’s Self-Driving Vehicle Development with Data

A key challenge faced by self-driving vehicles comes during interactions with pedestrians. In our development of self-driving vehicles, the Data Engineering and Data Science teams at Uber ATG (Advanced Technologies Group) contribute to the data processing and analysis that help make these interactions safe. Through data, we can learn the movement of cars and pedestrians in a city, and train our self-driving vehicles how to drive. We map pedestrian movement in cities with LiDAR-equipped cars, search video collected from the…

Improving Developer Experience for Cloudflare Workers

We’re excited to announce that starting today, Cloudflare Workers® gets a CLI, new and improved docs, multiple scripts for everyone, the ability to run applications on workers.dev without bringing your own domain, and a free tier to make experimentation easier than ever. We are building the serverless platform of the future, and want you to build your application on it, today. In this post, we’ll elaborate on what a serverless platform of the future looks like, how it changes today’s…

NGINX structural enhancements for HTTP/2 performance

Introduction My team: the Cloudflare PROTOCOLS team is responsible for termination of HTTP traffic at the edge of the Cloudflare network. We deal with features related to: TCP, QUIC, TLS and Secure Certificate management, HTTP/1 and HTTP/2. Over Q1, we were responsible for implementing the Enhanced HTTP/2 Prioritization product that Cloudflare announced during Speed Week. This is a very exciting project to be part of, and doubly exciting to see the results of, but during the course of the project,…

A blueprint for Solar Decathlon success

Mizzou’s winning Solar Decathlon team is Margaret Jordan, Janee Thompson, Megan Wahlquist, Professor Michael Goldschmidt, Jessica Blankinship and Brandon Smeets. For Megan Wahlquist, the moment of triumph wasn’t the award presentation. It wasn’t when she and her cohorts deftly answered every question from the panel of judges. It wasn’t even the round of congratulatory handshakes from industry professionals. It was the moment of silence. “They ran out of questions for us,” says Wahlquist, a junior from Fair Grove, Missouri. “That…

Using industrial waste to produce carbon neutral alternatives

A pozzolan quarry in Guatemala where large quantities of volcanic ash are added to cements in order to reduce CO2 emissions. Credit: Herbert Pöllmann/MLU Producing cement takes a heavy toll on our climate: Around eight per cent of annual global carbon dioxide emissions can be attributed to this process. However, the demand for cement continues to rise. A team of geoscientists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has found a way to produce more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives. In…

Cloudflare architecture and how BPF eats the world

Recently at Netdev 0x13, the Conference on Linux Networking in Prague, I gave a short talk titled “Linux at Cloudflare”. The talk ended up being mostly about BPF. It seems, no matter the question – BPF is the answer. Here is a transcript of a slightly adjusted version of that talk. At Cloudflare we run Linux on our servers. We operate two categories of data centers: large “Core” data centers, processing logs, analyzing attacks, computing analytics, and the “Edge” server…

Listening, Planning, and Setting Ourselves Up For Growth – Wayfair Tech Blog

When it comes to mobile platforms, Wayfair has multiple end user focused apps across iOS and Android, with over 100 engineers working on them. As the recently appointed lead of the App Team here at Wayfair, I chose to ask fairly generic yet consistent questions upon my arrival to get the lay of the land. These questions included: What are your team’s challenges? What are the opportunities? What should my focus be? What is there to like at Wayfair? What…

New dual-cavity design emits more single photons that can carry quantum information at room temperature — ScienceDaily

MIT researchers have designed a way to generate, at room temperature, more single photons for carrying quantum information. The design, they say, holds promise for the development of practical quantum computers. Quantum emitters generate photons that can be detected one at a time. Consumer quantum computers and devices could potentially leverage certain properties of those photons as quantum bits (“qubits”) to execute computations. While classical computers process and store information in bits of either 0s or 1s, qubits can be…

How Slack Hires a Red Team (and you can too!) – Several People Are Coding

What is a pentest or a red team? Before we go any further, we should define our terms, though you may find they’re often used interchangeably: Pentest: A penetration test, colloquially known as a pentest, attempts to use attacker methods to assess the exploitability, number, and impact of vulnerabilities so the target organization can remediate. It’s often thought of as a test of the technical controls of a security program. Red Team: A red team, by contrast, is not entirely…
