Aggregation at Yammer – Yammer Engineering – Medium

Jeffrey Zeng These are not the logs we’re speaking of. The Introduction With thousands of servers powering Yammer, and almost a million users using it, there are billions of logs produced per day — some that tell stories, and some that are just there to be read. But the logs you may not want to read now may be the very logs you do want to read later; in the long-run, an exception can be just as telling as a success. Yammer logs…

I Want It That Way (Promises Part II) – Zenefits Engineering

As we’ve discussed in Part I of this series, Javascript ain’t nothing but a heartache without a proper understanding of its fundamentals and a solution to keep Async `N Sync. Today, we review best practices for Promises in general and specifically in the context of Ember.js, all of which keeps our code two worlds apart from falling apart. You are my fireThe one desireBelieve when I sayI want it that way Will our series on promises ever finally resolve? Who…

This I Promise You (Promises Part I) – Zenefits Engineering

From the perspective of its fundamental language features (many argue bugs!), Javascript’s current day popularity comes as a total surprise. Closures, the keyword this, and prototypal inheritance may be confusing concepts to newcomers and odd opinions to experienced programmers new to the language. Given the async nature of the applications written with Javascript, a question arises:How do we keep our async code ‘N Sync across our codebase without bringing tears to our eyes? Every word I say is trueThis I…

ActiveRecord stole my data and now I want it back! – Yammer Engineering – Medium

Microservices have been a popular topic recently. People argue over whether you should start with microservices or evolve there from a single ‘monolithic’ app. Maybe in a well designed app microservices are simply a deployment option? It all seems rather academic when you have upward of 100,000 lines of (non-test) Ruby code glowering back at you. (And that’s before you start counting the gems!) You know you want to split it up, but how do you move on from there?…

The only rambling I have for 2015…

Time flies. Flies so fast. I did not noticed that I have not posted anything in this Chemical Engineering World blog this year of 2015. My bad. I have been really fully occupied with numerous on-going tasks, projects and responsibilities. Fortunately, I still have time to muse a word or two in 2015. Well, nothing much to write here but just wanted to highlight few things of 2015. 2015 Grand Opening What a great way to open up 2015 with…

Combating Driver Shortage Through Packaging

If you pay attention to transportation and long haul trucking rates, you know that the current driver shortage is a real problem and is causing increased rates and reduced load acceptance ratios.  For more details on the driver shortage and how it effects transportation costs, check out this article by Michael Kilgore. The most widely accepted solution to the driver shortage is to increase compensation for over the road truck drivers so that the profession remains competitive against other appealing…

The 32 Days Of Christmas!

When you have thousands of photos, it can be hard to find the photo you’re looking for. Want to search for that Christmas cat you saw at last year’s party? And what if that party wasn’t on Christmas day, but sometime the week before? To help improve the search ranking and relevance of national, personal, and religious holiday photos, we first have to see when the photos were taken; when, for example, is the Christmas season? Understanding what people are…

New Package Testing Results Reveal Tape Closure is Superior For Compression Performance

Your description of the test method is incomplete; for the taped closure, are you securing the minor flaps per requirements of Tappi T804? I think the test results are valid but the different is not likely due to the method used to close the major flaps, but rather what’s happening inside the box with the minor flaps. By using adhesive to secure the major and minor flaps together you’re preventing the minor flaps diving down inside the box and squaring…
