5 Strategies to Promote Your App

Brady Gentile from Cloudflare’s product team wrote an App Developer Playbook, embedded within the developer documentation page. He decided to write it after he and his team conducted several app developer interviews, finding that many developers wanted to learn how to better promote their apps. They wanted to help app authors out in the areas outside of developer core expertise. Social media posting, community outreach, email deployment, SEO, blog posting and syndication, etc. can be daunting. I wanted to take…

Our Partnership with TechWomen Grows

A group of LinkedIn mentors and the Emerging Leaders hosted at LinkedIn   Areas of focus for ELs at LinkedIn LinkedIn matched mentors with ELs based on similarities in the areas of focus. This year, our ELs wanted to focus on learning how to work with big data and perform analysis and data integration, drive user design and experience, and manage products and projects in bigger IT companies. To help narrow in on these topics and goals, mentor activities included…

3-D printing with a biobased polymer for CO2-neutral manufacturing

In our modern world, eliminating plastics is inconceivable. Unfortunately, they do have disadvantages, including the formation of CO2 in both production and combustion, depletion of fossil feedstocks, and growth of landfills. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Russian researchers introduce a new way forward, a polymer made entirely from biomass that can easily and inexpensively be used in 3-D printing. Objects produced in this way are of high quality, easily recyclable, and highly solvent-resistant. Conventional “subtractive” processes involve cutting, sawing, turning,…

Aquila: What’s next for high-altitude connectivity? | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

Approximately 4 billion people worldwide are unconnected, including many who live in regions that lack access to a broadband network. At Facebook, we’re working to change that. Connecting these often rural regions with existing, conventional technologies such as optical fiber or microwave links on towers is often expensive and unsustainable. So, as part of our commitment to getting more people online, the Facebook connectivity team is developing new technologies and business models to bring affordable internet to more people, faster.…

Envisioning a new engineering field: Understanding atomic-scale patterns

The phenomenon that forms interference patterns on television displays when a camera focuses on a pattern like a person wearing stripes has inspired a new way to conceptualize electronic devices. Researchers are showing how the atomic-scale version of this phenomenon may hold the secrets to help advance electronics design to the limits of size and speed. Source link…

How to Write Awesome Tech Specs – Lyft Engineering

Consider the following nightmares. You’re about to launch a new feature your team has spent weeks on. When you try to verify in staging, nothing works as expected. After digging into the problem, you discover that your feature relies on a service that another team recently deprecated. While trying to integrate client and server work for a new feature in your app, you discover that the client engineer has been working off of an outdated tech spec, nullifying weeks of…

Open-sourcing Sections: Declarative data handling for Litho lists | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

Earlier this year we open-sourced Litho, a declarative Android framework for efficient UI rendering. Litho delivers best-in-class UI performance through a simple, declarative API. Litho is primarily a rendering API that uses Components for displaying pieces of a UI on screen. But efficient UI rendering is only part of the challenge that we have to deal with at Facebook. Like many mobile apps, Facebook centers on a scrollable surface that fetches and displays lists of data. When you build a…

REACH Pilot Results in 80% Conversion: Making Strides in Cultivating Talent from Non-traditional Backgrounds

Our REACH program is designed to give highly determined individuals with strong technical skills the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience they need to become full-time software engineers. It also helps us hire more talent to join our engineering team. I’m thrilled to report, now that our first REACH cohort has finished, the program is a success on both fronts. Eighty-three percent of the 29 program participants successfully landed a software engineering role at LinkedIn or at another company. Of the…

Enhance Gaming Experience Using Wireless Headsets

When it comes to playing games, sound plays an important role in creating the actual ambience of the gaming world. Without the proper sound, the virtual world loses its realism in a great way. From the sound of footsteps of a man coming from a distance to the banging sound of a firearm, the background sound of games can heavily impact the whole gaming experience. Although at one point of time the sound or audio was regarded as a rather…
