New Russian jet takes to air in bid to rival Airbus and Boeing

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in front of the new MC-21 medium-haul jet, which has made a successful test flight, during its roll-out ceremony last June Russia on Sunday held a successful test flight of its new MC-21 medium-haul passenger jet that it hopes will revive its troubled civil aviation industry and challenge giants Airbus and Boeing. The plane, whose prototype was unveiled last June, flew for 30 minutes at a height of 1,000 metres and a speed of 300…

Spinnaker Orchestration – Netflix TechBlog – Medium

Author: Rob Fletcher When the Spinnaker project first started more than two years ago we implemented Orca — Spinnaker’s orchestration engine µservice — using Spring Batch. It wasn’t an entirely unreasonable fit at the time. It gave us atomic, compartmentalized units of work (tasks in a Spinnaker pipeline), retry semantics, the ability to define branching and joining workflows, listeners that could get notified of progress and many other things we needed. However, in the long run, that choice—and our implementation on top of it—imposed…

A viral way to share music when a simple text, meme, or gif isn’t enough

Two hackathon veterans discovered Square’s APIs at the SXSW Hackathon and the infinite possibilities they offer to improve their existing and new apps. Eric King and Damola Omotosho are two old friends who met at Virginia Tech while earning their engineering degrees. After graduation, they both ended up pursuing a master’s degree in engineering before working full-time in tech. While they were off to a strong start in their early careers, they had a desire to shake things up and find…

How Uber Engineering Verifies Data at Runtime with the Annotations You Already Use

Uber’s hypergrowth forces our developers to engineer stability into our apps using resourceful techniques. In 2016, for instance, we created and open sourced Runtime Annotation Validation Engine (RAVE), a data model validation framework that uses Java annotation processing to tackle the number one cause of crashes in our Android apps: NullPointerExceptions (NPEs). NPEs are a common issue with languages like Java that do not have nullability built into their type system. By leveraging the annotations you already use, RAVE acts as a…

Support Mike in the Great Cycle Challenge – UrbanWorkbench

I have registered for the Great Cycle Challenge and my goal is to pedal 300 km this June and raise $500 to fight kids’ cancer! And my challenge starts NEXT WEEK. Why am I doing this? Because over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer in Canada every year. It will be tough, but it’s nothing compared to what these kids face every day of their lives as they battle this terrible disease. Kid should be living life, not fighting for…

Minimizing the risk of electric shock around pools and lakes

A danger that you can’t see or hear—electric shock in water—can easily go undetected. Electricity is deadly and often discovered only after it is too late. When alternating current of electricity is running through freshwater bodies, such as pools and lakes, there is risk that a person could succumb to electric shock drowning. Donald Burke, Ph.D., director of UAB’s Advanced Safety and Engineering Management concentration in the Master of Engineering Program, explains. “Electric shock drowning can occur in…

New technique could increase success rate, life span of implantable devices

Hyowon Lee, an assistant professor in Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, holds up a smart self-clearing catheter in the form of microscale devices on a paper-thin film that can be assembled into existing catheters. The device could provide a reliable alternative to conventional high-failure devices that require additional surgery to remove. Credit: Trevor Mahlmann A new technique being developed at Purdue University could provide patients who require implantable catheters in the treatment of neurological and other disorders with a…
