Reacting to ReactBoston 2017 |

This past weekend, Wayfair hosted the first-ever ReactJS conference on the East Coast. ReactBoston was a two-day whirlwind of talks on everything from the popular and pressing (React Fiber) to the unexpected and astounding (piloting drones with React; that sound you hear is the audience’s collective jaw hitting the floor). As a relative React newcomer—I pushed my first React code into production less than three months ago—I was a bit worried that most of the material would be over my…

Multithreaded rendering on Android with Litho and Infer | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

The types of content people share on News Feed have evolved from text, to photo, to video, to rich immersive experiences like 360 and Live. As these experiences become more sophisticated, it gets more challenging to render items on screen using the traditional Android UI framework, even on today’s powerful high-end devices. On News Feed, not being able to render items quickly enough can result in awkward jitters and pauses instead of the smooth scrolling experience we want to provide.…

Engineering Restaurant Manager, our UberEATS Analytics Dashboard

At Uber, we use data analytics to architect more magical user experiences across our products. Whenever possible, we harness these data engineering capabilities to empower our partners to better serve their customers. For instance, in late 2016, the UberEATS engineering team built a comprehensive analytics dashboard that provides restaurant partners with additional insights about the health of their business. This solution had to be capable of gleaning insights from a data pipeline that was real-time, granular, highly available, and reliable.…

Preparing to Celebrate Women in Tech at GHC ’17

I’ve been in the technology industry for 17 years and consider my attendance at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing as one of the most powerful experiences of my career—and one of the most fulfilling. I’m looking forward to experiencing the celebration again this year with an amazing group of engineers from LinkedIn. It’s also a moment to reflect on the impact this event can have. Last year, while spending time in the LinkedIn booth at the GHC…

Geo Key Manager: How It Works

Today we announced Geo Key Manager, a feature that gives customers unprecedented control over where their private keys are stored when uploaded to Cloudflare. This feature builds on a previous Cloudflare innovation called Keyless SSL and a novel cryptographic access control mechanism based on both identity-based encryption and broadcast encryption. In this post we’ll explain the technical details of this feature, the first of its kind in the industry, and how Cloudflare leveraged its existing network and technologies to build…

Meet Gatebot – a bot that allows us to sleep

In the past, we’ve spoken about how Cloudflare is architected to sustain the largest DDoS attacks. During traffic surges we spread the traffic across a very large number of edge servers. This architecture allows us to avoid having a single choke point because the traffic gets distributed externally across multiple datacenters and internally across multiple servers. We do that by employing Anycast and ECMP. We don’t use separate scrubbing boxes or specialized hardware – every one of our edge servers…

Computer-Aided Design: How It Improves Safety in Engineering

Computer-aided design or CAD has been a critical component in engineering for many years, especially in developing construction plans and in creating 3D models of devices, machinery, and infrastructure. More than designs and models, however, CAD is also an important tool in improving safety in the actual profession and, in turn, the products that they build. Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis CAD helps designers create more accurate drawings and models, down to the smallest nuts and rivets. Being able to visualize…

Hurricanes Propel Forward Thinking on Risk, Resilience

Hurricanes Propel Forward Thinking on Risk, Resilience: Even as hard-hit areas of two of the country’s most developed regions push for normalcy after back-to-back hurricanes in early September, policymakers and construction industry experts are weighing the longer-term implications of the damage in Houston, Florida and the Caribbean from Harvey and Irma—and how and whether infrastructure resiliency can be accelerated and how that will affect coastal development.

Project Jengo Strikes Its First Targets (and Looks for More)

Jango Fett by Brickset (Flickr) When Blackbird Tech, a notorious patent troll, sued us earlier this year for patent infringement, we discovered quickly that the folks at Blackbird were engaged in what appeared to be the broad and unsubstantiated assertion of patents — filing about 115 lawsuits in less than 3 years, and have not yet won a single one of those cases on the merits in court. Cloudflare felt an appropriate response would be to review all of Blackbird…

Nevada experiment mimics earthquakes to test bridge designs

A day after a deadly earthquake struck Mexico City, University of Nevada scientists will mimic quakes to test new bridge designs developed to help the structures better withstand violent temblors. The engineers on Wednesday will rattle a 100-ton, 70-foot (21-meter) bridge model to see how it holds up on a giant contraption in a Reno seismology lab called a “shake table.” Some design work by the engineers has been incorporated into a highway off-ramp under construction in Seattle. It…
