Tumblr Engineering — Some Themed Posts Updates

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…

National Public Works Week – UrbanWorkbench

Public works is always there. Rain, hail, snow or shine, public works crews are dedicated to the job.

Across North America, our more than 29,000 members in the U.S. and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives:…

To Coach or Not to Coach?

A little while back during a coaching book club, a few Spotify coaches started a discussion about a common pitfall they found: why do we default to the coaching stance so much? The coaching stance is a tool used to help a partner to think and problem solve a situation through non-judgmental dialogue with the coach. It typically looks like a conversation with lots of open ended questions asked by the coach that provoke thought and contemplation in the partner. It’s a powerful tool,…

We Want You… and Your Teammates

We’re hiring here at Flickr and we got pretty excited the other week when we saw Stripe’s post: BYOT (Bring Your Own Team). The sum of the parts is greater than the whole and all that. Genius <big hat tip to them>. In case you didn’t read Stripe’s post, here’s the gist: you’re a team player, you like to make an impact, focus on a tough problem, set a challenging goal, and see the fruits of your labor after blood, sweat,…

Why should I Carebot? – Carebot – Meaningful analytics for journalism

Because what gets measured gets done *. The metrics you choose—and the ways you choose to communicate them—drive people to action. Analytics have the power to change behavior. To push your team to embrace different types of storytelling. To encourage reporters to think about some audiences more than others. To help managers make the hard choices of what to staff. And this can all go horribly wrong. If your metrics do not align with your goals, you’ll push your organization…

Lunchbox Update: We’re Dropping Support For Electron

By Tyler Fisher | March 21, 2016 Last year, NPR Visuals sent a team to OpenNews’s Portland Code Convening to create Lunchbox, a suite of newsroom tools that make images for social media sharing, and make it easily deployable for newsrooms. We decided to experiment with a new way of distributing newsroom technology – desktop apps, built with the brilliant library Electron. Electron allows you to build webapps with JavaScript and package them into native software. We also…

AWS Orchestration, Container Management, and PAAS for Microservices – Zenefits Engineering

Microservices is a software architecture where a complex application is implemented as a set of smaller independent processes or “services”. The services talk to each other through an HTTP API (typically REST) or through data stores like S3 or DynamoDB combined with a notification mechanism. Recent innovations in provisioning and…
