assessing progress – Engineering Growth Framework – Medium

At first glance, the growth rubric can be a little overwhelming. There are lots of tracks, and lots of examples. Engineers may be uncertain as to whether they qualify for a given milestone. It is important that everyone be clear on how we judge these milestones as they will directly affect an engineer’s level, and ultimately compensation. We must establish trust in the process and be as consistent as we can, judging people solely on the merits of their contributions.…

A Celebration of Learning at Grace Hopper

Photo by Cloudflare Staff Over the course of my career, I’ve been to many conferences, interacted with thousands of candidates, and attended countless keynotes, roundtables, and sessions. I can say without a doubt, that the Grace Hopper Celebration, stood out from the rest. And I think my team would agree. During the three day event, we screened more than 50 candidates, conducted 24 onsite interviews, and had more than 600 people visit our booth. Not bad for a booth near…

Using Kafka Streams API for predictive budgeting – Pinterest Engineering – Medium

Boyang Chen | Pinterest engineer, Ads infrastructure At Pinterest, we use Kafka Streams API to provide inflight spend data to thousands of ads servers in mere seconds. Our ads engineering team works hard to ensure we’re providing the best experience to our advertising partners. As part of this, it’s critical we build systems to prevent instances of ads overdelivery. In this post, we’ll explain overdelivery and share how we built a predictive system using Kafka Streams to reduce overdelivery in…

A Fast, Secure Migration to Google Cloud Platform using Cloudflare

OnAir Video Presentation Abstract Looking to host your website, application, or API in the cloud, or migrate to a new cloud provider while keeping your data secure? In this webinar, Trey Guinn, Head of Solutions Engineering at Cloudflare, will discuss how companies should approach security, during and after migration. We’ll highlight the migration story of LUSH, one of the largest global e-Commerce cosmetic retailers, and how they took the right steps to migrate from their previous cloud provider to Google…

Looking inside the basset horn

As part of the MUSICES project, Fraunhofer researchers are using 3-D computed tomography methods to examine historical musical instruments belonging to the collection held by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM). Based on this experience, they are drawing up guidelines for obtaining the best possible images and measurement results. Until now, there…

A new brain-computer interface for music composition

Credit: Shutterstock If that melody has just come to you, and if you know your way around a score, you might be able to think it into being now a group of researchers have developed a new brain-computer interface (BCI) application. Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) have been used to help people impacted by physical impairments to control prosthesis designed to be powered by their thoughts, enabling them, for example, to surf the internet and write emails. Work conducted by the…

Dobar dan, Hrvatska! Announcing Cloudflare’s Zagreb Data Center

Fire the Gric Cannon! Hot on the heels of several birthday week product announcements, we continue to expand our global network. Cloudflare is excited to announce the launch of our newest data center in Zagreb, Croatia, furthering the breadth of our network to 118 cities across 58 countries. Our Europe network alone now spans 33 cities across 25 countries (with at least ten new cities being planned). [For trivia fans: Our list of data centers beginning with the letter Z…

Good vibrations for the future of computing

The cascadable, vibration-driven microelectromechanical logic gate takes electrical signals as inputs and produces a logic output (1 or 0) based on the resonance of the microbeam. Credit: © 2016 KAUST Vibrating mechanical switches that can be cascaded to perform complex computational operations could take computing significantly further than today’s technologies. KAUST researchers have demonstrated an alternative technology based on mechanical vibrations. The microcomputer processors found inside every computer, mobile phone and microwave comprise mind-bogglingly complex networks of millions or billions…

Go Hack Nights at Cloudflare

At Cloudflare we’re extensively using the Go programming language to build a better Internet. Go is a free and open source programming language created by Google in 2007 and open sourced in 2009. Earlier this year, Go made news when it entered the list of top 10 programming languages on the TIOBE Index. Recently we launched an internal monthly Go Hack Night at our San Francisco office, open to anyone who works at Cloudflare regardless of their department or position.…

What’s coming in the next five years? — ScienceDaily

Single unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) directed by joysticks, radio controllers, and mobile phones are already accomplishing a variety of useful tasks, such as aerial photography and security patrols. But using multiple drones requires multiple human operators, and this presents a coordination problem. Now a single operator using emerging human-brain interfaces can control a swarm of drones, making possible new classes of applications, according to Panos Artemiadis, director of the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control (HORC) Lab at Arizona State University. Artemiadis…
