Tumblr Engineering — Alpha or Beta? The Choice is Yours, Android Users….

Simulating background / foreground notifications in Android In a recent article I wrote for objc.io detailing how notifications in Android differ from those in iOS, a reader messaged me and asked “How do I detect if an Application is in the foreground when a notification arrives? Android seems to be missing this functionality, where iOS has it readily available.” paraphrased It’s true, there is no intrinsic differentiation for foreground and background notifications in Android. This is largely a fundamental difference…

Personalized Group Recommendations on Flickr |…

There are two primary paradigms for the discovery of digital content. First is the search paradigm, in which the user is actively looking for specific content using search terms and filters (e.g., Google web search, Flickr image search, Yelprestaurant search, etc.). Second is a passive approach, in which the user browses content presented to them (e.g., NYTimes news, Flickr Explore, and Twitter trending topics). Personalization benefits both approaches by providing relevant content that is tailored to users’ tastes (e.g.,…

Simple Style Sheets – Medium Engineering

Or How to Improve Your Sleep by Dropping the Cascade What happens when you drop the “C” from CSS? At Medium, we’ve been experimenting with a new way of using CSS to style our user interface components: a few months ago we started using small, atomic, and non-cascading classes instead of the usual BEM modifiers. The result is that we have a slightly more awkward but much more robust system of styling visual components. Block Element Modifier CSS has only one global…

How we use Mocha and jsdom with CoderPad for Frontend interviews – Wealthfront Engineering Blog

At Wealthfront, our goal for interviews is simply to assess whether the candidate would be successful as an employee. The most important thing for us is to learn how they think and if they will excel at the job we are hiring them for. When interviewing frontend engineering candidates, we want them to write real code in an environment that they are used to. One of the greatest tools for technical interviews in the last few years has been CoderPad.…

In which CODE2040 and Medium hold a writing workshop for software engineers

Enter the writers: CODE2040 Fellows Who are they? They’re software engineering interns, college-age, brilliant and motivated.

This year, the fifth year of the program, there were more than 80 fellows working all around the Bay Area. On this particular evening, we played host to more than 40 who were based…

Moving Beyond Flash: The Yahoo HTML5 Video Player…

Adobe Flash, once the de-facto standard for media playback on the web, has lost favor in the industry due to increasing concerns over security and performance. At the same time, requiring a plugin for video playback in browsers is losing favor among users as well. As a result, the industry is moving toward HTML5 for video playback. HTML5 video playback development is still nascent, and it was initially supported by browsers in its simplest form. Only recently has support…

Tumblr Engineering — Introducing Laphs

As a platform that prides itself on being a home for artists and creatives alike, it only makes sense that we allow our users to fully customize their Tumblrs to fully express themselves. Here at Tumblr, the world is your oyster not only in terms of looks but also in how you create your theme. I wanted to demonstrate how you too can develop a theme using Redux and React. Since there are plenty of docs and tutorials on how…

Enforce REST API Standard with Swagger – Wealthfront Engineering Blog

At Wealthfront, we have an API server which exposes a REST API that’s consumed by our iOS and Android apps. Recently we decided to migrate our web frontend to use the REST API because we believe it would be beneficial to have all of our frontends sharing a single data source. We identified a few issues that we wanted to be sure to address as part of our frontend migration: the interface between client and server should be well defined…
