Testing D3 Transitions – Wealthfront Engineering Blog

Transitions are an important tool in our D3 arsenal that we can leverage to relate understanding of visualizations to others. They can be used to draw attention to some representation of the data, emphasize change, or highlight the effects of user interaction, among other things. Given these benefits, it’s critical in a test-driven culture like ours that tests be able to handle transitions. This blog has touched extensively on our journey with D3, which can be read about here: The…

Mobile on-body devices can be precisely and discreetly controlled using a tiny sensor

The Saarbrücken researchers’ prototypes can be controlled precisely and discreetly using minimal movements. Credit: University Saarland Mobile devices like the Apple Watch have a drawback: their small screen size makes them difficult to use. Computer scientists at Saarland University have now developed an alternative, which they call “DeformWear.” A tiny switch, no larger than the head of a pin, is built into a ring, for example, and worn on the body. It can be moved in all directions, pressed, pinched,…

Team to debut wearables that warn and wow at UIST 2017

The 2.5-D RetroShape — a smart watch with a shape-deforming back — is among Dartmouth’s offerings at UIST 2017. Credit: © Da-Yuan Huang A watch that works in multiple dimensions and a smart ring that provides calendar alerts are among the top technology Dartmouth College will bring to the 30th ACM User Interface Software and Technology Symposium (UIST 2017). Other technology to be introduced by the Dartmouth team includes a thumb-tip recognition technique that optimizes interaction with computer applications. …

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.…

framework overview – Engineering Growth Framework – Medium

By Jamie Talbot and Madeline Bermes. Medium’s Growth Framework is a little different from how many companies approach development, recognition and leveling. This document describes its structure and some of the reasoning behind it. Goals We are attempting solve a number of problems with this framework, and avoid others that we recognised in other systems. At a high level, we are trying to achieve multiple goals: Allowing engineers to develop in multiple ways, rather than artificially reducing them to “engineer”…

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…
