What’s new in our first release version of the dailygraphics rig?

Our dailygraphics rig has been around for more than a year and in that time we’ve used it to make hundreds of responsive rectangles of good internet, but we’ve never made it easy for others to use. The rig is heavily customized for our needs and includes our organization-specific styles and templates. Despite this, a handful of hardy news organizations have made efforts to adopt it. In order to better facilitate this, today we are releasing our first fixed “version”…

Google Trends : Concrete vs. Steel

I revisited an interesting (and free) tool on the internet called Google Trends.  It allows the user to “explore Google trending search topics.”  Since this is a construction-related blog, I decided to run explore the topics of “Concrete,” “Steel” and “Construction.”  After all, post-tensioning is a combination of high-strength steel and concrete. All graphs are based on a query run from January 2011 to January 2015 within the United States – Business & Industrial topics.  However, queries can be run starting…

The case of the “Page can’t be displayed” intermittent selenium test

IMVU relies heavily on unit testing with dependency injection for most of the testing of its website code written in PHP. Unit testing is great because it can be crafted in such a way that it will (hopefully) only test the things you’re interested in testing to verify the behavior of a particular component. This ideally makes unit tests both fast and reliable. However, it’s possible to write unit that all pass, but that fail to catch an incompatibility between…

Putting Radio On The Television

For election night 2014, we wanted to do something different. We guessed that the dedicated wonks — the ones who want to drill down into detailed data and maps — would probably go to sources like the New York Times or Washington Post. Rather than reproduce that work, what could NPR do that would be unique, and would serve a broader audience? To start, we had our organization’s thoughtful reporting and on-air coverage — a live event we could build something…

Three interesting code snippets from NPR’s Election Party

NPR’s Election Party app has a lot of moving parts. It displays live election results from the Associated Press, ingests posts from our Tumblr liveblog, bakes out visualizations of our data, and presents all of this in a slideshow that, on election night, was continuously changing through an admin. It even works as a Chromecast app. All of the code is open source and freely available to read and use, but it can be hard to make sense of all…

Work In Public! (Or, why you really should consider being NPR’s Knight-Mozilla fellow!)

Visual journalism experts. David Sweeney/NPR. It’s joy to work in public media. Folks here do amazing journalism, and are awesome to work with. Why? The non-commercial relationship between us and our audience. We’re not selling them anything. We do sell sponsorship, but have you heard an ad on NPR? They’re the nicest, dullest ads you’ve ever heard, and they aren’t our primary source of income. No, public media exists because, for more than 40 years, our audience has sent us…

ChBE UGrads @ GaTech: Another way to communicate…

We are always trying to determine what methods of communication are the most effective–which is why the BLOG was started!  However, there are some types of information that may not be as well suited to the blog as others.  So, the Student Advisory Board decided to give something else a try!  We have set up a CHBE Interactive website through T-Square–and you should be able to access it…https://t-square.gatech.edu/portal/site/ba0d038e-c8a6-404e-9fd7-42e7a12304c7/page/d3cb11fc-97d2-46eb-a762-1b293d2f033b You all use T-Square, right?  So, while you’re there, check out the…

Chemical Engineering World: Planning Your Future Career

I would like to share a question that was asked to me recently. The question was posted to me in my Facebook private message. I have informed the person that I will try my best to answer her question in my blog, for the benefit of others because I believe more of chemical engineering students are facing the same dilemma. Identity of the person has been changed. Here is the question and it is followed by my answer. My answer…
