How we built Built with Workers… on Workers

I’m extremely stoked to announce Built with Workers today – it’s an awesome resource for exploring what you can build with Cloudflare Workers. As Adam explained in our launch post, showcasing developers building incredible projects with tools like Workers KV or our streaming HTML rewriter is a great way to celebrate users of our platform. It also helps encourage developers to try building their dream app on top of Workers. In this post, I’ll explore some of the architectural and…

Expanding The Reach of IoT In The Next Decade

In spite of recent slowdowns in the initial expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), strong long-term growth is still projected throughout the next decade. Some are even predicting a doubling of the industrial sector IoT in the next couple of years. Most of us imagine that growth will consist largely of new IIoT-ready equipment, smart sensors and controls, and that old plants filled with legacy machinery will be ripped up and replaced to fulfill industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)…

Android App Modularization at Wealthfront (Part 2) – Engineering Blog

In the previous blog post, we looked at how the project was initially set up, and now we will take a look at how we started organizing features into Gradle modules. To ensure a consistent bucketing strategy throughout the migration period, we decided that it would be ideal to place any new code inside dedicated feature modules. We decided if we didn’t stop the inflow of more code into the root module, we would have to keep modularizing the new…

Android App Modularization at Wealthfront (Part 1) – Engineering Blog

App modularization is the process of spitting a monolithic architecture into much smaller components with high cohesion and low coupling. In layman’s terms, chopping down a very large codebase into smaller digestible (ideally independent) pieces that share a common responsibility. Our main goal was to improve the incremental build times of the application to boost developer productivity and experience. This involved making changes to the configuration of our build system, refactoring existing code and revising our architecture. In this series…
