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…

Best Anonymous Browsers to Stay Protected Online

How carefully did you choose your browser? What parameters did you pay attention to in the first place?

Besides, for many, it is essential to have an automatic ad-blocking function and cookies notifications. Unfortunately, not many browsers can provide you with such features. Therefore, we have collected for you a selection of the most secure and feature-rich browsers, using which you can feel safe…

Powering Pinterest ads analytics with Apache Druid

Filip Jaros | Software Engineer, Partner Engineering Weihong Wang | Engineering Manager, Partner Engineering The Change When we launched Promoted Pins in 2014, we chose Apache HBase as our database to store and serve all of our reporting metrics. At the beginning of our ads business, this was an appropriate choice because the number of reporting features needed and overall traffic was low. Additionally, HBase already had a proven record in the industry at this time, and we knew how…

Keeping LinkedIn professional by detecting and removing inappropriate profiles

Machine learning is at the heart of everything we do at Spotify. Especially on Spotify Home, where it enables us to personalize the user experience and provide billions of fans the opportunity to enjoy and be inspired by the artists on our platform. This is what makes Spotify unique. Across our engineering community, we…

A cost-effective and extensible testbed for transport protocol development

This was originally published on Perf Planet’s 2019 Web Performance Calendar. At Cloudflare, we develop protocols at multiple layers of the network stack. In the past, we focused on HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2, and TLS 1.3. Now, we are working on QUIC and HTTP/3, which are still in IETF draft, but gaining a lot of interest. QUIC is a secure and multiplexed transport protocol that aims to perform better than TCP under some network conditions. It is specified in a family of…

Tiny ‘xenobots’ assembled from cells promise advances from drug delivery to toxic waste clean-up — ScienceDaily

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells — scraped from frog embryos — and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide “xenobots” can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient) — and heal themselves after being cut. “These…
