While consoles still provide an exceptional experience in terms of selection and performance, mobile devices are quickly catching up. The three main systems right now are Android, Apple and Windows. While they can all provide great performance under the right circumstances, they each excel in one specific area. Android Android has the largest share of the pot right now in terms of devices,…

Building a Living 3D Rendering Platform |

Wayfair uses 3D modeling in place of traditional photography to generate 2D images for thousands of products. In place of the physical entailments of traditional photography, we create models using Autodesk’s 3DS Max. Models are submitted to a QA tool we built where analysts can communicate with modelers to ensure each model is an accurate representation of the product. To perform this quality check and to verify the dimensions, we render out a set of images so we can see…

Streaming Data Pipelines with Brooklin

Datastream management APIThis is a REST endpoint to create, update, manage, or delete datastream objects. It stores datastream objects in Zookeeper. At LinkedIn, we have a self-service portal called Nuage that facilitates creating and managing infrastructure resources, including Brooklin. CoordinatorA coordinator is present in all server instances, and one of the coordinators is chosen as a leader. The leader coordinator computes task assignments based on datastream objects stored in Zookeeper and assigns tasks to all active server instances. The leader…

Rainstorm generator assesses watershed rainfall under climate change simulations — ScienceDaily

The Colorado River tumbles through varied landscapes, draining watersheds from seven western states. This 1,450-mile-long system is a critical water supply for agriculture, industry and municipalities from Denver to Tijuana. In the drylands of the Colorado’s lower basin, formed by Nevada, Arizona and California, thunderstorms — known in meteorological parlance as convective precipitation — typically control runoff, stream flow, water supply and flood risk to human populations in addition to water availability to vegetation. Convective precipitation, which can lead to…

See your location ID without the API call – Square Corner Blog – Medium

Our latest refresh of the Square Developer Portal includes locations IDs When merchants sign up for Square they create what we called a “location.” This location represents a distinct place that they do business.

For developers, locations are particularly important, since they determine where the…

Keeping the Daggers Sharp ⚔️ – Square Corner Blog – Medium

Dagger 2 is a great dependency injection library, but its sharp edges can be tricky to handle. Let’s go over a few best practices that Square follows to keep mobile engineers from hurting themselves! Favor constructor injection over field injection Field injection requires the fields to be non final and non private. // BADclass CardConverter { @Inject PublicKeyManager publicKeyManager; @Inject public CardConverter() {}} Forgetting an @Inject on a field introduces a NullPointerException. // BADclass CardConverter { @Inject PublicKeyManager publicKeyManager;Analytics analytics;…

No dark side to using LED lights to supplement WiFi, research reveals

Energy-saving Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) could help meet demand for wireless communications without affecting the quality of light or environmental benefits they deliver, new research funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has shown. A University of Edinburgh team has found that transmitting digital data via LEDs at the same time as using them to generate light does not make the light dimmer or change its colour. Nor does it make the LED more energy-hungry. Dr Wasiu…

How Machine Learning Impacts Finance

The world is becoming more technologically advanced with each passing day. One of the latest advancements is in the area of machine learning. If you are not familiar with machine learning, it is a computer science field where computers can learn new information without being programmed to. Sound pretty sci-fi? Believe it or not, this is real. And it is really helpful in many fields. For example, machine learning has helped to solve highly complex problems in speech recognition and…
