Creating an employee with Python – Square Corner Blog – Medium

Employee management was one of the first APIs; here is how to use it with Python. In this post we’ll go through the steps to create a new employee record attached to your Square business. If only actually hiring employees was as easy! You’ll likely use this employee creation script as a part of some import or syncing script, but for this example we’ll make a standalone snippet that creates an employee. Let’s take a look at each part of the…

5 Strategies to Promote Your App

Brady Gentile from Cloudflare’s product team wrote an App Developer Playbook, embedded within the developer documentation page. He decided to write it after he and his team conducted several app developer interviews, finding that many developers wanted to learn how to better promote their apps. They wanted to help app authors out in the areas outside of developer core expertise. Social media posting, community outreach, email deployment, SEO, blog posting and syndication, etc. can be daunting. I wanted to take…

Our Partnership with TechWomen Grows

A group of LinkedIn mentors and the Emerging Leaders hosted at LinkedIn   Areas of focus for ELs at LinkedIn LinkedIn matched mentors with ELs based on similarities in the areas of focus. This year, our ELs wanted to focus on learning how to work with big data and perform analysis and data integration, drive user design and experience, and manage products and projects in bigger IT companies. To help narrow in on these topics and goals, mentor activities included…

Project uses plastic dialysis waste to produce durable concrete

Dialysis patients could inadvertently improve sustainability in the construction industry, thanks to an innovative Deakin University recycling project that’s turning hospital waste into longer-lasting concrete. A team at Deakin’s School of Engineering is behind the new project, which could ultimately save from the scrap heap the thousands of tonnes of plastic waste created in Australia each year through dialysis treatment. Project leader Dr Riyadh Al-Ameri, a senior lecturer in structural engineering, said the project could solve two problems in…

Scientist devises a solar reactor to make water and oxygen from moon rocks

With the successful test of this solar reactor design, Denk has achieved the first step, creating H2O on the Moon using solar thermal energy. For the second step, solar electrolysis would break the H2O into hydrogen and oxygen. Credit: Thorsten Denk: Presentation at the International Annual SolarPACES Conference 2017 An aerospace engineer has built a machine to make water and oxygen from the lunar regolith, powered by solar energy. Working over a ten year period at the Plataforma Solar de…

3-D printing with a biobased polymer for CO2-neutral manufacturing

In our modern world, eliminating plastics is inconceivable. Unfortunately, they do have disadvantages, including the formation of CO2 in both production and combustion, depletion of fossil feedstocks, and growth of landfills. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Russian researchers introduce a new way forward, a polymer made entirely from biomass that can easily and inexpensively be used in 3-D printing. Objects produced in this way are of high quality, easily recyclable, and highly solvent-resistant. Conventional “subtractive” processes involve cutting, sawing, turning,…

Aquila: What’s next for high-altitude connectivity? | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

Approximately 4 billion people worldwide are unconnected, including many who live in regions that lack access to a broadband network. At Facebook, we’re working to change that. Connecting these often rural regions with existing, conventional technologies such as optical fiber or microwave links on towers is often expensive and unsustainable. So, as part of our commitment to getting more people online, the Facebook connectivity team is developing new technologies and business models to bring affordable internet to more people, faster.…

Envisioning a new engineering field: Understanding atomic-scale patterns

The phenomenon that forms interference patterns on television displays when a camera focuses on a pattern like a person wearing stripes has inspired a new way to conceptualize electronic devices. Researchers are showing how the atomic-scale version of this phenomenon may hold the secrets to help advance electronics design to the limits of size and speed. Source link…

How to Write Awesome Tech Specs – Lyft Engineering

Consider the following nightmares. You’re about to launch a new feature your team has spent weeks on. When you try to verify in staging, nothing works as expected. After digging into the problem, you discover that your feature relies on a service that another team recently deprecated. While trying to integrate client and server work for a new feature in your app, you discover that the client engineer has been working off of an outdated tech spec, nullifying weeks of…

Using Google Cloud Platform to Analyze Cloudflare Logs

We’re excited to announce that we now offer deep insights into your domain’s web traffic, working with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). While Cloudflare Enterprise customers always have had access to their logs, they previously had to rely on their own tools to process them, adding extra complexity and cost. Cloudflare logs provide real time insight into traffic, malicious activity, attack incidents, and infrastructure health checks. The output is used to help customers adjust their settings, manage costs and resources, and…
