Rebuilding Slack’s Emoji Picker in React – Several People Are Coding

Slack is transitioning its web client to React. When Slack was first built, our frontend consisted of established technologies like jQuery and Handlebars. Since then, the community has developed better ways to create scalable, data-driven interfaces. jQuery’s “render and modify” approach is straightforward, but it’s prone to falling out of sync with the underlying model. In contrast, React’s “render and re-render” pattern makes consistency the default. Slack is evolving alongside the industry to improve performance and reliability. We determined that…

Military-funded prosthetic technologies benefit more than just veterans

To further expand on this, we will take the opportunity of this article to explore…

Novel technology applied to replace aging bridge

A new bridge replacement system allows for rapid and cost-effective construction. Credit: Majid Talebi/ University of Delaware America’s bridges received a grade of C+ on the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, put out by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Aging is a factor in this score—almost four in 10 of the 614,387 bridges in the U.S. are 50 years or older, and the average age keeps climbing. But repair and rehabilitation are extremely costly—the most recent estimate puts the…
