Lake Michigan could best support lake trout and steelhead — ScienceDaily

Invasive mussels and less nutrients from tributaries have altered the Lake Michigan ecosystem, making it more conducive to the stocking of lake trout and steelhead than Chinook salmon, according to a recent U.S. Geological Survey and Michigan State University study. Reduced stocking of Chinook salmon, however, would still support a substantial population of this highly desirable recreational salmon species, which is a large contributor to the Great Lakes multi-billion-dollar recreational fishery. “Findings from our study can help managers determine the…

Unpacking the Android Bundle with AutoValue Extensions at Uber Engineering

The Android Bundle is a convenient and sometimes necessary object for wrapping data to pass across process boundaries and send with intents, as well as to store state between configuration changes. Unfortunately, wrapping data in a Bundle often requires repetitive and error-prone code. What makes this even worse is that a Bundle attached to an intent from GCM (Google Cloud Messaging) loses type information because GCM serializes the data as String-String key-value pairs. When investigating a solution for how to…

Power outage hits the island of Taiwan. Here’s what we learned.

At approximately 4:50pm local time (8:50am UTC) August 15, a major unexpected power outage hit the island of Taiwan with a significant amount of its power generation facilities going down. Blackout! Most of the island was hit with power outages, shortages and rolling blackouts, with street lights not functioning, nor power in many of Taipei’s shopping malls, and much other infrastructure. Blackouts of this scale are very rare. Usually, during an outage of this scale, it would be expected that…

Evolving API Pagination at Slack – Several People Are Coding

At Slack, the size and scope of the data we expose via our APIs has changed dramatically since the product first launched. Endpoints that were designed around the expectation that they would, in the most extreme cases, return several hundred records, are now returning hundreds of thousands of records. To handle this rapid growth, we’ve had to rethink how we paginate data — from no pagination, to offset pagination, to a new cursor-based pagination scheme. In this post, we’ll go over the…

Best Firefox Add-Ons for Website Designers

There are literally hundreds of Firefox Add-ons out there varying from your local forecast to a chat application. Some are pretty useless but for Web Designers out there, there are a few that, once you get to know them, you won’t know how you’ve managed to work without them.
