Three-day no-meeting schedule for engineers – Pinterest Engineering – Medium

Brian Donohue | Pinterest engineering manager, Product Engineering About 100 days ago, our product engineering team began experimenting with a three-day no-meeting schedule for individual contributors on our teams. It’s not a big revelation that software development requires long stretches of uninterrupted time to focus. As Pinterest has grown, we’ve noticed the number of meetings also has increased. Having so many meetings can fragment an engineer’s entire day, eliminating the stretches of uninterrupted time required to build software. Back in…

The case of the eternal blur – Medium Engineering

So Brad + I have been working on these elevated collection pages + posts for a small eternity. We forked the post page, ripped out all the cruft, and made this rad index page that shows off all the posts in the collection with some branding. We’ve had a few different collection concepts on Medium, but this one is optimized for our editorial team to showcase some of the collabs they’ve been working on, like Unruly Bodies with Roxane Gay.…

Sapienz: Intelligent automated software testing at scale | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

Shipping code updates to the Facebook app, which is used every day by hundreds of millions of people, requires extensive testing to ensure stability and performance. At Facebook’s scale, this process requires checking hundreds of important interactions across numerous types of devices and operating systems for both correctness and speed. Traditionally, this has largely been a manual test design process, during which engineers devote time and resources to designing test cases. But at Facebook, we have developed an intelligent software…

Mizzou leaves impact on Institute of Biological Engineering annual meeting

The Institute of Biological Engineering’s Annual Meeting in Norfolk, Va., could easily be described as a “Heather Hunt Production.” And for her efforts, the IBE gave her its 2018 Presidential Citation Award, one of its three biggest accolades. Serving as chair gave Heather Hunt a front-row seat for MU Bioengineering graduate student Toni Matson’s excellent poster presentation, “Electrospinning Lecithin-Polycaprolactone Scaffolds using Gold Nanoparticles for Osteoarthritis.” Photo courtesy of Heather Hunt. The associate professor of Bioengineering at Mizzou was tabbed as a…

Our new Privacy Policy and Data Protection Plans

Giant ship transits Istanbul after laying Russia-Turkey gas line

Pioneering Spirit is the size of several football pitches One of the biggest maritime vessels in the world on Wednesday transited through the Bosphorus in Istanbul after completing the first line of a new gas pipeline between Russia and Turkey beneath the Black Sea. The vessel Pioneering Spirit, the size of several football pitches, passed through the Bosphorus towards the Mediterranean after laying the first section of the hugely ambitious TurkStream project. TurkStream, a project championed by President Vladimir…

Debunking the 4 Myths of a Career Transition from PhD to Data Science

Since I began my tenure at Wayfair as a data scientist, many PhD students and postdocs have reached out to ask for advice about the transition to data science in industry. After a fruitful collection of conversations, I’ve realized that there are popular misconceptions about what it means to be a data scientist. The reality depends on the industry and the specific company, but having made the leap myself, some light can certainly be shed on the matter to help…

ONNX expansion speeds AI development | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

In the beginning of the recent deep learning revolution, researchers had only a handful of tools (such as Torch, Theano, and Caffe) to work with, but today there is a robust ecosystem of deep learning frameworks and hardware runtimes. While this growing toolbox is extremely useful, each framework has the potential to become an island unto itself without interoperability. But interoperability requires a lot of custom integration work for each possible framework/runtime pair, and reimplementing models to move between frameworks…

Top Digital Marketing Tactics Every Business Needs to Use

Large companies have large resources, meaning they can either outsource or have an independent marketing department dedicated to driving traffic and increasing sales. Smaller businesses, especially start-ups, do not have that luxury. They must have a hands-on approach to every digital marketing tactic they use, and they need to use all that they can in order to get their name out there and grow a following of loyal customers. Thankfully, there are many avenues to choose from, meaning you can…

Adoption of dolutegravir-based regimen could be cost-effective, even cost-saving, over the long term — ScienceDaily

An HIV treatment regimen already widely used in North America and Europe would likely increase the life expectancy of people living with HIV in India by nearly three years and reduce the number of new HIV infections by 23 percent with minimal impact on the country’s HIV/AIDS budget. The findings from an international team of investigators have been published online in the Journal of the International AIDS Society. “This study is the first to show that, in India, changing current…
