Nikola Founder Resigns as Executive Chairman Amid Fraud Allegations

"Nikola is one of those electric vehicles startups we discussed recently on a weekend bonus episode it's an electric vehicle startup not named. Tesla remember and Nikola is one of those startups that's also focusing more on trucks. Yeah well, the founder of Nikola Trevor Milton has abruptly resigned as executive chairman of Nikola amid what the Wall Street? Journal. Is Calling fraud allegations quote Nikola, which went public in June through a reverse merger has come under scrutiny. Since Short Seller Hindenburg research released a report earlier this month accusing the company and Mr Milton of making exaggerated claims about the readiness of Nicholas Technology, and how much of it is proprietary doubts about the company's readiness to produce vehicles and questions about its claim to own proprietary technology have prompted US securities regulators and the Justice Department to investigate whether Nikola misled investors. The Wall. Street Journal reported earlier this month citing people familiar with the matter Nikola has called the. report false Mr Milton said in a company statement that he had asked the board to step down. So the focus was on the business not him. He added in a separate statement posted on his twitter account. Early Monday that he intended to defend himself against quote, false allegations levelled against me by outside detractors and quote Mr Milton thirty nine years old founded Nikola twenty. Fifteen and owns nearly one quarter of the Phoenix based companies shares according to fact set he served as chief executive until the company went public at which point he became executive chairman and Mark Russell was appointed as CEO investors have seen Mr Russell as a calming influence over the bullion behavior. Mr. Milton who has frequently vented frustrations and shared ideas via twitter and quote. More. Details I learned about Nikola today while researching this segment GM recently said it would take an eleven percent stake in Nikola in exchange for helping to engineer and build an electric pickup truck called the Badger and Nicholas Stock was down twenty one percent in this morning's trading that nonetheless still gives it a thirteen billion dollar market cap. This just popped up on tech crunch quote news is breaking that Trevor Milton Nikola Co founder, and former executive chairman was arrested by the DOJ FBI at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix Arizona.

"Effective. A lot of times people will come in from a Jason Roles, where they may be started as a software engineer and then they decide to start working more in the data space and they aggregate and accrue the necessary knowledge and experience to eventually move fully into the data engineering space that that point they're more of a senior level. And so I think it's definitely helpful to have a way for people to jump start their career in data engineering and go straight into being effective at the entry level with the breadth of knowledge that they require versus just having to organically discover all of these different elements and then figure out later what the gaps in their knowledge our and try to fill them either by themselves or by taking individual classes or reading specific books to be able to understand what are the pieces that they don't fully grasp and for like three pragmatic like money oriented perspective. What I see in the market is that you know we had this. Great influx of BG's who went like a data science bootcam-, Bates money's disabuse mar learn like signs. He got the job the bail better than what the? Beenish. They learned about industry personal but we're job see how it's working. Version control tests and things and offer wanted three years again. I. Believe that some of them might have this that I can be much more productive if I know more of the engineering either on the acquisition side or like putting my thinking production I also had expressed of experience that. If. Like a business analyst and you might not thinking that you need like super complicated normalcy don't. WanNa. Data scientists still. Quite Ada steal your sheep, your data products I mean most of the data products I've seen in my life production were not lexical gated models. Something that serves the company from inside for outside doesn't have to have deep learning, but it has putting production that has the talk to database properly editor and even to my previous like job of Super Happy Jobe train fronton engineer to become detention year. So I was sick that much data but. He understood injuring practice. That's you know again, what we're contravenes hardly intrepid people you talk about these things with them I think it has to have some kind of engraving like motivation. So you feel the need for that and then you can you can add on top of that I mean it's not Russia records surgery. Again, I, think more likely that one of the things that you really need to focus on one of the things. You might need a tool but if you need any goal I know and you die mean densities on some box and learned about too but it just like to it's not like a spectator. Stop like understanding of what it probably trying to solve. A really good presentation from jazz humble on the DEB side of things talking about don't hire devops engineers from external sources, start growing them internally because it's easier to start with somebody who has a base level of capability with an engineering and then help them to the necessary skills to be more broadly effective. I think the same holds true with data engineering absolute I agree with you. Because again, some t shape understanding of your systems this somebody's with you for like one two, three years. Much. Better. Had Start to become an effective engineer even then the someone comes in and no scuff not but again. This whole is higher company actually works that helps for people who are applying to your data engineering academy or some of the common reasons that they have for wanting to become burst data engineering and move into this particular role. I think we have a video of KYW's feedback in terms of like wizard is justified it. Fellow who's Brewing as a research engineer like a research research liking scientific setup you'll get. This is what I feel. Exactly, these things like I have to have like a solid practical understanding of data management. Operations Dino EPA, cheap projects come, and go again you can learn about them I would say that tried to however try to save you time. Signal don't go down trout's then we'll try to explain like why we think it's not something that's really belong slight core values of. Might be like just a medicine station for getting time. But again, if you understand, I know how mb houses work, you might WanNa keep to and for people who are applying, what are some of the baseline capabilities that you expect or anticipate for your target audience and what level of proficiency or capability you aim for when they've completed your program prerequisite survey centered around sequel as a decorative language kind of understanding how that works and also I really buy them because Biden is not the best for. But. It's good enough for most of the things and it services kind of were Franca between different teams like even if you don't buy, you can kind of understand what's happening. So some kind of background. Procedural approaches, and also if you spent one two years at birthplace anything and you've seen euro companies are your team specific to handle tickets out to handle version control. What is your branching strategy? So kind of have a basic understanding of contemporary social development setup. Even if you're not the city doing that as a data scientist, maybe this kind of contacts or awareness I think certainly needed and I think. Do this with us. We hope that you can walk away with a practical knowledge practical examples of what can you deliver and I mean it's super hard turn somebody. Anybody else in. Three months time but I believe that giving you the self confidence that I can do..

Amazon Alexa Jobs in Canada

"Hey Terry here with your flash briefing for Monday. Hope you're off to a good start for your week as I promised a last week I've been diving into a little bit of the jobs that are available with Amazon particularly in Canada and there are a number of jobs particularly in Vancouver and Toronto that are currently available. And apart from yes you may be interested in applying for those jobs and by the way you can see those at Amazon dot jobs I was interested to see what kind of jobs are being posted because that may give us a little bit of a clue in terms of what features maybe seeing soon and one of the first jobs that came up on this list was. A development. Manager for Lexi Guard so you don't know guard is one of the features that is available in united. States. But it's not here in Canada. So what does that mean? Well, it does mean that Amazon obviously is trying to bring that to Canada but if they're looking to hire someone to work on it, it probably means that it's not quite ready yet for prime time here in Canada. So that's a little bit on the Lexi Guard. Some of the other jobs that I'm seeing posted include and these are all in Canada. Areas of applied scientists software development engineers, a quality assurance engineers, solutions, architects applied scientists. Language engineers a senior V voice user interface designer for Lexi shopping. So That's interesting. They WanNa Canadian to working on that lots and lots of development engineers I'm seeing. and. Finally, I'm seeing job called senior software development engineer for Lexi orchestration, and to be honest, I'm not sure what orchestration means when it comes to Levy. But in the job description, the job description, it says lexi or. Is situated at the center of all Lexi customer experiences whether they are traditional custer, customer initiated speech interactions, or the growing set of lexi initiated proactive scenarios such as routines and notifications very interesting anyway. So there's a little bit of insight into what's going on in Canada with the market. Again, if you're one of those jobs, definitely check it out, go to Amazon dot jobs and apply in. We'll get some Greek Canadians on the team. All right. Have a wonderful day talk to you soon.

"Should be able to deliver that piece of clothing that goes well in every occasion you can start experimenting with different you know Colorado's sectors and so in order to help to bring up a new generation of data engineers, you recently started down the path of building a boot camp for helping to train them wondering if you can talk through some of your motivation for embarking on that journey, and if you can maybe discuss a bit about your particular approach to helping to bring people into this ecosystem and into this problem domain, the greedy far from my side is that I it's so hard. To find like data engineer system that coming from anywhere as there's like a lot of need for them. If I, call myself a data. Jay Jordan the.

Hearing about like folded science teams getting choked by the finance team when they look at them of the coast of this is the uplift. Thank you. But no, thank you. It might be the case that the engineering is not sexist thing but you need plumbing you will need plumbing whatever you do. You have to have these systems humming and again I think a devops data engineering to most interesting tales. These days I think devils needs from you much much more deeper understanding of. Holistic system view and I can even imagine that for like Junior d the engineer and you like this part of the game that you have to understand this connected things you might want to be like that will person later. Theory that if you look around and said CD's as four junior doublespeak for for me like a contradiction in terms, you have to spend some time in the industry to understand feel the pain that what helps means So I don't think there's also exist definitely a good point too about the fact that junior data engineers is not really something that people aspire to or something that there's really a good pipeline four similar to devops engineers where because of the breadth of knowledge that's necessary to really be effective.

A Dive Into SEO

A Dive Into SEO

"What does SEO stand for search engine optimization? Right on. Trying to think are funny funny more. Serious engineers over engineering. ooh. I feel that adds another e at the end, but that's Okay Jeff. Hyphen pitch outs all that's fair. That's true. WHY IS SEO? So important a good question. You know you and I were talking about this Ryan where it's like if you build something awesome what's the point users never come and so search engine optimization is really important because you gotta put your product out there and search engines are essentially the front door to the Internet. That's true 'cause yeah. Like you're not just typing in www dot blah blah blah blah dot com in hoping that it's a great website you're you're having to search for something and usually I don't know how many times you all spend time on the second page of Google I don't think. I make it very far to even the bottom of the first page there's a second page. All these. I've heard that. Yeah. So urban legend I feel like it's even worse on the mobile phone right leg. It's usually like just wanted like on that little bit of a screen I'm like they're done go. Yeah, I. Think it's. It's definitely if you're wanting near website to even get traffic, it's it's super important also very hard like I think that's the thing too is it's it's very important, but it's also something that it takes a lot of work. You know it's not just like put a couple keywords in your get on the top of Google cheers. It is it's it's practically a fulltime job, and that's why like companies will hire dedicated SEO experts or the leaving outsource to another company because it's there's the basics and then there's the things on top of the basics where you're optimizing the pages in the content, and that takes time it's not something you just do instantly it takes this kind of iterating and checking and monitoring, and then iterating from Mare and changing like the algorithms will change and the. How certain search engines rank certain things that algorithm changes and you're not privy to it. So you have to kind of gas, which is why there's these consultancy firms that pop up because they can stay in business because the rules keep changing what it's really interesting to to all that you just said about like having experts or consultants who think about it. And really have to pay attention to those things, but it's also really hard to call. You think you alluded to this but it's hard to measure because of the time too. It's not like hey, after a week, this change will show up it might be weeks it might be a month. So even as you make changes, you're like, did that do something? That's always been my struggle i. hope that did something well, but you don't quite know. Yeah I like the way you phrased that because there is a component of emotion to seo and I know that sounds ridiculous where you're like, why would I be? Why would I care so much about Seo but it's that hard work that you throw out into the world and then you're waiting on that return you're waiting on hopefully. The changes that you make will prop your page up on Google or any search engine like being or even Yahoo there there are other search engines. Now, that's a I've everybody's making good points. We I think Juniors we underestimate the importance vescio added. It's like Oh yeah I like you're saying you build something. Awesome. But nobody knows about it who cares? What was it four? If you're building a consumer product and consumer can't find your page your APP. then. What's the point? So you it's something. We totally forget about that like marketing in Seo actually critical to some of the things we build a lot of things will the the consultant angle is interesting because what I've seen and I have Also experienced, Seo. Practically none. But from what I've seen is a lot of Voodoo magic people claiming things and like Oh you got to do this. We're trick and this and this, and what I've seen is just it's a lot of people guessing. and. They have vague ideas about what the search algorithms are looking for. But they can't really prove it because I'm sure Catholic. NETFLIX's. personalization engine is like pretty secret even even for people were fair I'm sure. Google. Search ranking. Algorithm Patriots like also very. Super Super top-secret not that anybody can understand anymore. It's probably like millions of lines of code but. I it's just like a buyer beware if someone's like, Oh, I can get you to the front page or whatever be careful. A lot of people use dirty tricks and things that will get you. Like band or delisted. To get you to the front page unlike. It's a whole Burki world. There's entire SEO. Conferences. But. I imagine they're kind of bored I I mean I think there's value I. think there's probably good tips that they have right in order to I think you're right those like the bold statement I will get you the top of Google. That's a that's a pretty big statement and not always that simple and yes like. All right, let's say, Netflix Yeah. If you Sir Stranger things net flicks watch on Netflix or something like that. You'll be at the top if that's your keyword. Cheers cheers. Used to be a lot easier actually, what's what's interesting is over time Google has made it harder to game the system it used to be that you could just throw keywords onto your page and clears like. You could throw terms onto your page and Google would pick up on these terms in than. They would see oh, you're pages valuable. Now you've added these keywords sorry cut. Cheers. Chairs. What's funny is when I first started. Seo. We installed scripts on websites where because Google would tell you the search queries. The users are coming in from you would add those to your database, put them on your page, and then you're paid would rank higher and higher. But once everybody started doing that. Then the algorithms became more sophisticated in harder to game affi- and now they're including things that are not even just about content. It's like is your page fast? Can it load fast and it's like? You can't you can't fake that. No you really can't and yet but. Now they're lean into more of the user experience. You should be rank tire if if someone's trying to find something really helpful, they don't want to be sitting there for a longtime specially with mobile like I made the comment to being on mobile but I think it's more and more important being on mobilised. Really quick.

"Be able to know what to ask and sort of what to focus on it's difficult particularly as a junior data engineer. If you don't have somebody more senior to help you along to be able to push back on certain requests to say you know I know that you're asking for this specific thing but that's not actually what you need. What you need is for me to be able to focus on the foundational elements of this platform because otherwise I might be able to get you that information but I can't keep up to date or I can't ensure its reliability and being able to prioritize within the constantly shifting needs. Of how the data wants to be able to access data and the increasing number of sources that are being dealt with what are your pieces of advice or some of the ways that you have managed to level up yourself in terms of the organizational awareness and being able to identify what are the overall hierarchy of needs within the organization to know where to start focusing and what you can deliver in the long run versus just right now, one is trying to like super practical maybe like depends on different cultures but like standing in front of the mirror and trying to pronounce like, no, we like a steady wise that some exercise that is birthday I think. I always, always staff tonight juniors that yes is solo fine to say, no sometimes drew but I think a starting point that you really have to understand the business rationale behind and I think it's always fine to ask what exactly do wanted achieve having this piece of data they like one more step further which I like the Friday. Five crew because we've been there like Friday five o'clock manager see star will runs room and like, yes I want to have this piece of data now I needed. You're in a position to ask back in sick five. That's bail. Experiment I have free. Now, what can you do about it? Can you make this pro in production make people with team can be changed marketing campaign always GonNa, roll out because amb if you're asking the question why? Do we need data like foster donated reliable, not even play out your the three options that you can have just two of them but again, it's very important to understand the context here am I doing point out the fact that if the job market, but that's what I've seen like. Higher. Management of cases that somehow burst and people who manage to get like senior level by themselves but it's super hard to find junior data engineer. They just don't don't grow. Here. In Berlin Shaka Bush three native scientists just POPs up. But if you want to have someone who's kind of understanding basics that get the sequel chemo good of that might be true or not true or correct or not correct our current technologies. But like kind of have understanding what other questions I can ask that's that's super hard and so in terms. Of the technical knowledge that you think is essential for data engineers and to your point too about the difficulty of finding or training junior data engineer. What are the sort of foundational elements.

U.S. Digital Response and the Volunteer Tech Effort

"President Obama's chief data scientist, talks with US Digital response cofounders Jennifer Palka and really knew as well as racially A member of US digital response. You know the place. I wanted to kind of start this conversation with you. Is almost rewinding the clock back and Tio where we were, and it's it's hard to to remember. But You know, it hasn't been that long. Since then. She all came together. March 16th, You know, that was 133 days ago or 19 weeks or on Lee 36.34% of 2020. Not long but to put it in perspective. What was what was coded like at that time. When, when, when? Back in March, 16. You know we had 4500 people who had tested positive in the United States and 88 had died. Six of which were in California. Sam Cisco Bay Area had moved to a shelter in place, and it was three days before a governor Newsome had issued a stay home order for the whole entire state. Ouchy had just warned that the worst is just ahead of us. It was his first time really warning that publicly. And so you know what we think about how much change from the numbers back then to now, I want you to take us back to the initial moment and that that almost that realization Of why jump into this? Why create us digital response when people the numbers weren't as bad as people have thought, What what got you to see this? And and maybe railing? Could you talk to us about how you came together? US digital response. I would say we started off a somewhat simple idea and a bit of a prediction. It was founded by a former U. S deputy chief technology officer is like John He was here and season tech industry veterans more like myself, and we kind of came together with this idea and thinking that With the pandemic. We were going to see government systems and government teams really be stretched beyond their current limits. And knowing all of the wonderful tech really talented tech expertise we have in this country. Is there something there? We can connect the people who have this expertise with the government teams are really going to need that hope to scale beyond problems that we've really never seen. So I think what happened was that was a thesis and we basically gave it a shot. We put a call out for help to technologists and we reached out to government people working in government that we knew their networks and we're basically like Is there something here? Can we provide help? As a team. We've really just been blown away by what we've been able to dio on Both sides. I think we've seen on one hand. We've seen those government services be taxed in a way that's really unprecedented. And in a way that goes way beyond where we made initially thought or on health care. We see systems being affected like Government service is like voting toe accessing benefits in the social safety net in general, and I think we've been overwhelmed by the interest from technologists who raised their hands to help so Probably. Within our first few weeks, we had thousands of technologists all over the country raised their hand sign up online just to say, Hey, I'm here here on my skills. I want to help. And so I would say USTR has served as that bridge that gap kind of bridge that gap between tech and I just want to help and governments in need and when we've really seen that the model works. So we're just about past four months of existence, and we've had over 5500 volunteers sign up to help from all over the country. We've actually taking on over 130 different projects with states and counties and city government teams in a TTE this 1300.27 different states, which kind of really amazing when I think about that. And as I said, it's all happened in just a matter of months. I mean, it's just phenomenal. You know, Raph, why did you join? What? What? What? What you did to this effort You have, like endless job opportunities with your background. Yeah, I was one of the first volunteers with you See, are the newbie on this panel? It's because I was spending all my time Energy doom, strolling and reading the news on DH. Release is worrying about the future on that didn't feel good night background is in Tech Azan Engineering executive You know, like I have worked at a few different startups and developing amazing roller coasters. But the thought experiment that I run when I'm thinking about leaving a group or joining group is if this group of people who succeed beyond their wildest dreams like what would the net impact on the world being In past companies have sometimes thought like I feel pretty neutral office like I love the people and the projects are interesting. But what is the impact? And so I've been on kind of a quest for the past few years to find a way to make That kind of impact it scale back in March. In this tiny thing that you're talking about. There was a lot of energy from the tech community, especially here in surface Go like the hacker news readings that to try and find ways to help and it seemed to me like a lot of the Things that people are working on. We're a little bit like solutions in search of problems like The solutions that are going to move the needle are going to be like something crazy, innovative. It's going to be mass cooperation and distribution and logistics and the kind of things that we infected government for. So a mutual friends talking about USTR, and when I read about it, heard about it. It was like this is this is the way we have to help governments. Let's help them be responsive to the needs. And so I had, like. The man's privilege of having the time of the financial security volunteer for free for a while. And the anxiety to not sit around doing nothing

"And so in terms of the overall challenges, facing data engineers, what are some of the common difficulties that you see them contend with whether it's technical or social and organizational, and what are some of the ways that you have used to overcome those challenges or to help others overcome them I'll say again. Our role in this whole. Setup and I believe still you know like a data engineer like Jane does its job well invisible. You know we kind of really making sure that everybody gets what they need that. Ends up having a problem here there because nobody really you know seize your contribution just to win the whole thing fails. So it's pretty interesting how to balance this out that you know we have to show. The value gave us something. That's super important on the other hand. The nature of the job is not something that you can. You know necessarily present at the retro and have like clapping standing on a funnily production database isn't seeing quay the analytical database sometimes, it's not the sexy. I think is one of the major challenges kind of Boll is back to that issue again, it doesn't make sexy to become A. Data engineer necessarily. I think than data scientists got a lot of these love everybody wants to be that because sexy thing to do it for like you know become a data scientist one or two years you realize that you might need other skills out definitely get today to how they should put your mortgage production. You might start value data engineers bit more. I'm saying this like more like a social conditions. That whole Jiggle side I think what really makes perspective is that I look back I my previous jobs and I knew back who I'm talking to these days almost everybody seemed to be. Doing, some kind of cloud migration or some kind of hybrid setup approach and a lot of cases like production or like fighters drives this change. Just folding try to stitch things here and there and make sure of fines property and well I think there's something that can give you headaches general this type of. Feeling like data scientist on a while to do how to do was awesome. What's not possible just because it runs on your computer and you manage your doctor is it doesn't mean that we can serve in production and this is something where a lot of things come up. I mean, it's not hopeless. Efforts one has to wooden to make sure everybody on the same page think that that's definitely one of the things worth digging into that to your point earlier about the data engineering role being invisible when it's done well similar to when you're working as a systems administrator, our platform engineer unless something goes wrong nobody knows that you exist and your task is actually to try and yourself out of a job which there's so many different things to do that. It never actually comes to that point, but it's definitely difficult to raise awareness to the value that you're providing when you're doing things well because as you said. You're invisible until things break, and then digging into the point of the sort of different use cases of data what are your thoughts on the position of data engineer as far as being able to understand what are the actual needs of the data and what are the highest priority items to focus on when there are so many different people who are asking for information or trying to answer questions, and it's not possible for you to do all of them at once to be able to figure out what is the most impactful and most valuable thing that you can be doing. I think most think back full fingers. Like my impression they engineers ones who has to be best communication compared to like I. Don't front and back end maybe even like they architect because I've seen these roles happening in kind of you know don't quarters like you know someone says dom does the whole react thingy of night getting tickets and just delivering I think that they'd engineering to. Understand what is the business value with trying to get because I think nobody really has the whole picture. Let's say. Let's say data scientists and the data engineering, and they should be collaborating pretty goals to have a good grasp that that what's feasible to deliver and I have war stories that I mean I did should myself? You knew several times? That's why I try to bridge this again, funding a thing the engineer has to have like very, very great communication skills. And in some ways in order to be able to know what to ask and sort of what to focus on it's difficult particularly as a junior data engineer. If you don't have somebody more senior to help you along to be able to push back on certain requests to say you know I know that you're asking for this specific thing but that's not actually what you need. What you need is for me to be able to focus on the foundational elements of this platform because otherwise I might be able to get you that information but I can't keep up to date or I can't ensure its reliability and being able to prioritize within the constantly shifting needs. Of how the data wants to be able to access data and the increasing number of sources that are being dealt with what are your pieces of advice or some of the ways that you have managed to level up yourself in terms of the organizational awareness and being able to identify what are the overall hierarchy of needs within the organization to know where to start focusing and what you can deliver in the long run versus just right now, one is trying to like super practical maybe like depends on different cultures but like standing in front of the mirror and trying to pronounce like, no, we like a steady wise that some exercise that is birthday I think. I. Always Always Staff Tonight Juniors that yes is solo fine to say, no sometimes drew but I think a starting point that you really have to understand the business rationale behind and I think it's always fine to ask what exactly do wanted achieve having this piece of data. They like one more step further which I like the Friday. Five crew because we've been there like Friday five o'clock manager see star will runs room and like yes I want to have this piece of data now I needed. In a position to ask back in sick five, that's bail distort experiment I have free. Now, what can you do about it? Can you make this pro in production make people with the team can be changed marketing campaign always GonNa roll out because Amb if you're asking the question why? Do, we need data like foster donated reliable not even play out your the three options that you can have just two of them. But again, it's very important to understand the context here. Am I doing point out the fact that if the job market but that's what I've seen like. Higher Management of cases that somehow burst and people who manage to get like senior level by themselves but it's super hard to find junior data engineer. They just don't don't grow Here in Berlin Shaka Bush, three native scientists just POPs up but if you want to have someone who's kind of understanding basics that get the sequel chemo, good of that might be true or not true or correct or not correct our current technologies. But like kind of have understanding what other questions I can ask that's that's super hard and so in terms of the technical knowledge that you think is essential for data engineers and to your point too about the difficulty of finding or training junior data.

New York Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia Leaves City Government, But Will She Run For Mayor? ‘Stay Tuned’

"Today, While a sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia, is last day on the job, you'll recall she took on a few other roles in city government during her 6.5 years at sanitation, and she's making no secret. She has her eye on a role with even more responsibility. Kathryn Garcia says she'll know in the next few weeks if she'll run for mayor. In the meantime, she's looking forward to a whole weekend off. She gotta send off with pipes and drums as she walked out of sanitation headquarters for the last time this commissioner Deputy Commissioner for recycling and sustainability. Bridget Anderson says Garcia did a lot to bring the uniformed and civilian sides of the department together. Have four operations were out there in the streets every day, but we're also doing planning. We're doing engineering doing policy, and she really found a way to bring together those two sides, so we're really working together a lot better, Garcia said On her last day, she told workers, they taught her a lot. Like sanitation lingo, terms like shrinking or coast to coast or going out of town or mongo are swell. I think they got a little bit of a kick out of that or clean garbage as she considers her possible next move, she says She is concerned about the department going into the winter with fewer workers as the city's budget constraints, lied to cuts and layoffs.

Whats Next for the U.S. Air Forces Next Generation Air Dominance Program

"I'm wondering if you can kind of go back and tell us what is next generation air dominance, and where did that program emerged from? How did we get from nowhere to a demonstrator because didn't just happen like that. Well, it it. It seemed to I. Mean You know when? Roper is Dr over the essence secretary of the Air Force Brat Position Technology Logistics. Announced very abruptly yesterday during his speech that this flight demonstrator had flown I. think that everybody by surprise I wasn't expecting that kind of announcement during his speech today and It's exciting I mean I. I can't be as as an aviation aerospace journalist with an interest in military aviation I mean this that's the that's as good as it gets a secret of flight demonstrator for new fighter that you. You hear about the first time it's confirmed that there's nothing more exciting except for actually seeing it, which I hope we see when they but it turns out. I. Mean there there is a paper trail there's a, there's a little breadcrumbs that have been sprinkled. Along the path of public comments, I air force leaders over the past couple years leading to this, and some of them have only become sensible in retrospect now that we know that this thing really does exist. But in some ways are actually quite explicit and I think I'd point initially to an exchange ahead with journal Goldfine who just retired a month ago but a year ago at the same event even though it wasn't virtual at the time, it was in Bersin. Gerald goldfine chief of staff had a press conference I was asking about next generation air dominance in my big question was about the propulsion side of it congress at the time was was expressing quite a bit of frustration with the air force because it's been billions of dollars on adapted cycle propulsion, and there was no publicly available roadmap to use it, and so they're saying. Why are you still asking for this money? We have no place to put it. You know. So tell us where you're going to put A. I, put that question to many explain what you know. It's it's bit difficult because there's a live classification while tennis and so there's only so much. We can say they said L. L. Region his exact quote he said he's here's our. Strategy. We have five key technologies that were investing in that we don't intend to have all come together on a single. To be able to do the mission. In the future, we expect these technologies to be adaptable to existing platforms, and we expect these technologies to come forward into a family. I, know use family assistance a lot but really, and truly that's the next generation dominance. So as a so our intent is to keep these joint technologies moving aggressively and have them come together. They will all mature in accelerate at different paces as they become ready. You'll see US adapting them on existing platforms, sensors, and weapons, and also looking at new platforms sensors. So that was what he said and then I I didn't understand what really what he was getting out. I just didn't he didn't answer my question. So I repeated my question. What is the you know? When are we going to see a roadmap for adaptive cycle propulsion? And he his answer was there has to be a test article to be able to take some of those technologies to mature. That's probably about as far as I can go in quote right so what he was saying they're in retrospect is we have five technologies. We're GONNA put on in Gad. He didn't say but sounds like adaptive cycle propulsion is one of them and You know they need a test article, a flight test demonstrator in other words. To validate the majority of the technologies in-flight. So. That was almost as explicit as the air force has been about that. But really there was a time when. The Department of Defense was even more explicit about the the plans to actually use flight demonstrators for next generation are dominant and it goes back Congressional testimony in twenty sixteen at the time Frank Kendall who was the Under Secretary of defense for Acquisition and technology a acquisition technology in the justice. It has written testimony. included this written test, the House of Representatives. twenty. This was actually in calendar year twenty fourteen and it was going to launch a program in. Fiscal year. Twenty fifty. and. It was the aerospace innovation initiative that would be managed by the defensive ends. agency Darpa.

The critically important design teams in the defense industrial base reducing lead. Time. For Feature Systems the explains will not be engineering. Development Prototypes for have residual operational capabilities. The results successful the development and demonstration explain program will inform future aircraft acquisitions. So that gives you a sort of the background on how these. flight demonstrators came into existence and what their purpose walls. We know from Rocha's comments that the flight demonstrator that he's referring to be called a full-scale flight demonstrator so as a subscale or Even, a large aircraft that is meant to extrapolate the flying qualities of even of an even larger aircraft. So You know but there's still a lot we we don't know about it but that's generally the gist of how we got

Amazon Hiring 100 000 People

"If we need more proof of how well Amazon is doing during this global pandemic, get this Amazon has recently said they've announced they posted. That they are looking to hire an additional one, hundred, thousand people across Canada and the US. If that doesn't say that they're doing well, then I don't know what does now interestingly, of course out of those jobs, there are all these huge number of those that are specifically geared towards Lexi. In fact, there are over eleven hundred jobs have to do with Lexi. I'll just run through a few these categories because if you're looking for a job and you've got some of those. Skills that would be helpful to Amazon. Then you may find a really great job here there's a hundred and eleven jobs related to Lexi. Ai Forty, six related to Lexi a engineering eighteen lexi auto twenty nine for Lexi Communications fifty-six for Lexi data services fifty six for Lexi data and developer technologies. Forty eight for lexi entertainment thirty four for lexi experience seventy seven for experiences and devices sixteen for Household Organization fifty five for Lexi information thirty, four for lexi international forty three for lexi mobile interesting now. Twenty Alexi. Search one, hundred, eighty, nine for lexi shopping. Shows you props where there's some priority being placed by Amazon forty-three for the Alexi skills team almost fifty five for the Alexi Smart. Home. Three. For the Alexi lexi smart home cameras eighty six for Lexi speech and finally forty one for lexi voice services who so if you are interested in any of those areas, then you might want to check out the website. You would go to Amazon dot jobs and you can check out all of their listings there what I plan to do over the next little while is take a little bit of a deep dive into the jobs that are specifically available in Canada. Because that's interesting about dot perspective but also I'm curious to see if this will give us a hint as to which features Amazon is more likely to be bringing to Canada sooner rather than later if they're putting priority on

Breaking Through as a Challenger Brand in a Dominating Industry with Michael Landa

"Michael say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know probably feared asked people my office they would not know was trying to think earlier is one thing that they definitely would not know about me and that is that up until about I'd say probably a couple of years ago I could still do a standing backflip in my office. So Yeah. I kinda grew up as a competitive gymnast when I was in high school and then I was non-american swimmer. So I mean swimming was really my main sport. But I competed a lot on the floor exercises in gymnastics as well, which is something people most people don't know about me. I've just always had this feeling that if I ever tried a standing backflip immediately tear my MC l. that's just a thought that I I don't know why I had that thought that's why I said for years ago try. Not Going to happen. So fire nation as I shared the talking all about teaching an old dog new tricks and my guest today has launched a company called New Loewe, which is a combination of the words nutrition and love. So that Super Cool New Loewe and why Michael I mean, you went to business school why did you decide to start a pet food company before the PETRIE company? Kind of the Genesis of the Food Company was a company I started? Before new I, I'd spent the early part of my corporate career working for big companies. I used to work for is your oxen in General Electric, and then most recently with universal studios in. Two thousand one that I was in L. A. and I was taking a quick break and. I found I. Don't know how many of you have been through the experience of trying to find a pet sitter for your pet. I went through an experience, sperry the detail, but basically led me to leave universal and start what became the nation's largest at home pet sitting dog-walking training business. Is based in Los Angeles and we. I spent about a decade running that company and was it was in and of itself was a really cool business about one, hundred, eighty five. Pet Sitters dog walkers doing roughly eleven thousand a month all over Greater La, and you know the significance of that was I was you know we're on the front lines of feeding a large population of dogs and cats whether parents were traveling and over the course of the decade I really started to see a huge demand for pet sitters who could administer at home insulin shots, and this is for diabetic dogs and cats, and we eventually it started to stress the business where I couldn't hire that tax and and trained my sitters to give shots fast enough and you know one thing I was trained academically as a biomedical engineer. So I I can be annoying and in my ability to kind of. Dig for root causes and that's exactly what I did in this case is you know I started asking myself like what what's happening why are so many pets getting sick why are so many dogs and cats getting diabetes and? I went out and talking to vet schools and scientists around the country and you know what I learned wasn't I'm GonNa say it wasn't really rocket science but it was you know essentially that are pets are living in in their own version of fast food nation we have you know we we have a country where four. A large large conglomerates control over eighty percent of the pet food sales in the United States and you know these are the very companies that make candy, chocolate, Jelly and cereal right. These are these are the four that control eighty percent of our pet food distribution the US. So you know. Really. The majorities are really low in meet their high in carbohydrates, these high glycemic ingredients. They're marketed very well but unfortunately, dogs and cats can't use the food for themselves otherwise, they choose products that are high in meat. That's one of the reasons you know I. Before I even gave it much thought I was leading Los Angeles moving to Austin Texas and I started new Loewe with the objective of creating a food platform. That's more species Pacific for dogs and cats at high in meet low in carbs and look like

Make Your Zoom Meetings Soar Remote Work John Paul Mendocha - burst 14

"Doing Zoom and working remotely because that's the world that we're currently living in today, and it's probably going to be the world that we're going to be living in for not just. A short period of time but because we're starting to understand that you know what we can get a lot of work done remotely in very a lot of industries we need to grasp, hold its concept being able to do as zoo meeting and do it right all right, and so we're we're GonNa talk about some of these little pieces here as we finish up here in this hour so. Let's talk about a couple of really we you talked about the green screen, but I think one of the things that two things that we need to talk about is audio and video. And bring up to really fabulous points and I am right on it and Let's. Let's talk about the video portion I, what should we know about video because we can make some mistakes there Why I think the the first mistake that we make is that is that when we get into the whole realm of video. We immediately go. Hey High def right I want high. DEF. and. All that sounds good because of course, we're watching I definitely and television and by the way watching something happened. Is Infinitely more. Is Easier and simpler than you actually making it happen. So you want to look at your resolution and see if you can actually tone down your resolution because. They're probably not gonNA WANNA see four K or whatever. And by the way very few people have the bandwidth to do four K. Right now. So video is important and and you WanNa make sure that you understand how your video works, how how it's going to be put together and you can. You could start out inexpensively and you can go very expensively You can actually get a really decent zoom call out of a iphone or android with with a face with a front facing camera. But what you WanNa do you WanNa get a stand and have this stand hold it instead of you because let's face it. If if you're holding your camera, you know if you're holding like this way you know and you've got this little jitter will cause your hand will get tired and you're doing this stuff You're not going to be not going to be very effective. So just make sure that you understand that and and you know. Test see what is like also, you can make videos on your on your PC, your Mac you know on your laptop makes videos and see what the camera it looks like. Big Mistake that people make is they got nostril cam going that's great. You know which one I'm talking about right. Looks like it looks like Sherwood forest up there but you know you got these guys who they don't even they're clueless by the way if you want to know how to make your laptop, go up up up, I will give you the cheap way to do it. You could go get some paper that would go into your printer and just keep stacking up keep stacking up. Reams of paper until have the right line of sight. So people aren't looking up there and going. I wonder. Don't want them to wonder, hey, how's how's that? For a really inexpensive way to do that and you're right you know you can take books or whatever to raise your laptop if you don't have a separate camera, I think probably you and I, I have a camera on a tripod that's a USB camera attached here so I'm looking right at it, but you don't have to have. That you don't have to spend that money to do that type of thing. So you most as you point out in the book, most of your laptops have a camera in there. Let's get rid of knows. Kim Let's. Let's get some books and let's get that. Let's get that raised there. So we can see you right. Let's talk about audio. Let's talk about audio because I think we we think that because Ron video that audio is not important, but it really is critical. Isn't it? Audio's very important. Now, I I happen to prefer just because of my personal style and what I do is I wear I, wear a gaming headset so you can go buy a gaming headset for seventy. Bucks. Plug into a USB and it does a good job. It it. You know it sounds good by the way it kills lots of surrounding noise and that makes me the MIC stand. You know. So matter how much moving my head and it's funny because I, what I'm. Looking at buying headsets I was talking to. Somebody. Who is really a good audio engineering and we're talking about my problem, which is I had a really nice microphones like Jay has in fact, I have several but the problem is I would come off center. So my volume would keep getting funky and changed and he said, well, tell me how much you move your head and I said, well, it's got like halfway between Ray Charles and Stevie. Wonder. and. Said Okay here's the solution. The solution is you have to be the Mike Stand. So I bought actually have multiple headsets but for for seventy bucks at a best buy, you can buy cheaper but you know you now have this and it's great isolation people are I watch a lot of people who take the little headset that comes with their phone and they have that they're holding the microphone up to them and let's face it a microphone. That's the size of a pinhole. That's that's what your voice is being replicated through. Right so you spend a few bucks you'll get a, it'll be a lot better. Some people don't like to wear these because it makes them look I. Don't know whatever. But you know you gotta think in terms of a good microphone and you can get pretty decent microphones for less than one hundred bucks.

The New Backend Engineering Lead at TextUs - Brittany Martin

"By corner of the world is very different and so I think I've kind of alluded to it on some of the episodes we've recorded up to this one but nick, you are my very favorite co host. So of course, I waited until you were back on the podcast so that we could discuss all the changes but I have recently shifted roles. So I quietly changed my linked in quietly changed my twitter and my get hub but I am the new engineering lead for the back end at text us. Congratulations that is that is huge right I don't even know where to begin but. I guess the best place is at the beginning. So how long ago? Did you kind of find your way into the world of Texas yeah. So ask the listeners know I've been at the trust for about five years, which was fantastic because I leveled up. So much of the trust, a lot of my conference talks that I gave came from the work that. I was doing at the trust I loved those working at a nonprofit affecting the arts and the Pittsburgh community because when I came back from San Francisco, I really wanted to get re-involved with Pittsburgh and there was no better place to do it with the trust being a small nonprofit and you know there was only so many places that I could grow up words. I decided to start considering my options, and so I came across Texas and text. US. Basically is a business class text messaging software and they're built in rails, which of course, is very important to me as the host of this show to continue working on ruby on rails. So you know I have bet my career on it. And the Texas currently serves the ASS staffing recruiting industries mainly though they also serve a lot of different industries but it's a really interesting and complex code base and they use a lot of the dry principles, which is that I was somewhat familiar with, but I hadn't worked one on one with. So how about you neck? Have you used a lot of dry rb? So when you dry principles, do you mean like actually using like dry rb and the dry rb tooling and the ghost? Yes heavily on my goodness. So I have literally just wandered so far as hearing about it in a podcast or you know and I and I, think I follow the maintainers on twitter and reading about five never crossed that threshold to actually using it even in a in a toy up. So House have been. kind of seeing that world is imagine it's quite interesting. Yeah. I'm coming off of a code base where we used a lot of service objects. So in some ways, there are some principles there that are somewhat familiar where you don't stack all of your logic into your models and controllers, but dry principles. It's just it's very clean and I'll tell you that during the interview process with Texas, which first of all was a really fantastic. Interview Process and I hope a lot of companies have processes like this it my process probably took I would say about five weeks and that involved a lot of one on one in conversations with their product manager the CTO, their chief architect, my partner, who is the engineering lead for the front end and just really making sure that it was a good culture fit and then I ended up doing a pairing session with the chief architect and. What was neat about it is that we tackled some very rails lia problems, but then as towards the end of the interview. He gave me some examples of how my code could change to actually reflect those dry principles and how that is how they manage the code in code base and I left that interview just ceiling. So intrigued about how I feel that I knew ruby on rails fairly well, but just seeing it in that sense it got me really curious and I was like this is this is. going. To. Be Great for my career. It must be amazing to get another set of eyes because I have to commend you you know. There's A. Strong trend in tech where people you don't hear the five years that often anymore. I don't think you you see is short as eighteen months to I'd say, even three years I'd look at unlinked and say, wow, that was a while. So so it's definitely you know there's all the. Normal aspects of changing changing a job but I think from a code aspect just saying these different ideas you know and. It's like a super learning experience all over again if you're around a bunch of intelligent people working in this code base and and especially with tooling that you may not have used before so must be. An absolute thrill.

Congressional report blasts Boeing for deadly 737 Max jet failures

"A congressional report this morning is blasting both Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration for actions that led to two fatal crashes of the 7 37 MAXjet. Max remains grounded. Marketplaces nervous office on the line. What's this? House reports say? Well, the language in this report is stunning. David, who's a sample house, Investigatorsfindings Max. Pressures were quote. The horrific culmination of a Siri's of faulty technical assumptions by Boeing's engineers. Ah, lack of transparency on the part of Boeing's management and grossly insufficient oversight by the FAA. That's just one passage in this 250 page report. It goes on to side disturbing pattern in his calculations. That's what it calls it and mismanagement of bowing. People in charge didn't necessarily understand everything about the Max is designed, the report finds. And how does this square with the views of the FAA and boing? Well, they've both been saying that they're working to improve their servitude practices now, But Boeing had been working to also is also working to redesign the plane, the Mac's plane and the caste system that automatic system that pushes the plane's nose down. It's been faulted for the crashes. But I remember being in the room in Chicago at the bowling Shareholdersmeetings David when then CEO Dennis Muhlenberg first held a press conference after the planes were grounded, and the press corps was puzzled because he was saying that Boeing had done everything he was supposed to during the design process, and we were wondering how can all procedures have been followed? In the result? Be a faulty plane will now the this report is shedding light on that the FAA technically finding The max development processing compliance even after the first plane crashed report concluding that the current regulatory system is quote fundamentally flawed.

Boeing, FAA blasted by House panel over deadly crashes

"This morning an investigation by a panel of Congress about what caused the deadly MAX crash. Maxjet crashes strongly criticizes the F A. A CBS News Transportation correspondent Chris Van Cleve says the report contains new details that show Boeing engineers and pilots knew.

Congressional Inquiry Faults Boeing And FAA Failures For Deadly 737 Max Plane Crashes

"A sweeping congressional inquiry has found damning evidence of failures at both Boeing and at the Federal Aviation. Administration in the development and certification of the seven thirty seven Max, the report says these failures contributed to to Max plane crashes killing three hundred and forty six people. Here's NPR's David Schaper. The House Transportation Committee investigation finds that there was no singular technical flaw pilot failure that led to the deadly 737 Max plane crashes. In Indonesia, in October of two, thousand, eighteen Ethiopia, the following March instead it describes the circumstances that led up to them almost like. A perfect storm calling it the horrific culmination of a series of faulty technical assumptions by Boeing's engineers lack of transparency in the part of Boeing's management and grossly insufficient oversight by the FAA. The report details Boeing's flawed design of a new automated flight control system on the plane and mistakes and using outdated and faulty assumptions of pilot response, as well as a culture of concealment keeping information from the F., a. its customers, and the pilots would fly the plane. There's something big came out of this. That's just is mind Boggling House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter Fazil Inquiry and says, what's mind boggling is at both Boeing and the FAA contend they followed proper procedures at vowed the seven thirty seven Max to be compliant that the bureaucratic were it was compliant but the problem is it was compliant and not say and people died the report also details how Boeing employees were under enormous pressure to keep costs down in the plane on. Schedule Aviation Subcommittee chairman. Rick. Larsen says misguided priorities of senior management drove. A number of troubling decisions in one case, senior management when as far as installing countdown clocks in conference rooms making clear to Max employees meeting production timelines rather than safety was a top priority. The congressional investigation is one of many into what caused the lion air and Ethiopian Airlines. Seven thirty-seven Max Plane Crashes Christine Negroni is an aviation journalist and author of the book, The crash detectives and she says, while much of this information isn't new. Poll, what is to me astonishing about the report is the depth, the thickness and the jury of both FAA and bowling knowing that there were problems with the redesign of this airliner and the oblivious -ness of both parties in recognizing that this was a problem that needed to be addressed and thing to grow any fines. Remarkable is that a number of people did raise. Safety concerns about the seven, thirty, seven Max. But those were either inadequately addressed or just dismissed by Boeing many of them never seeing the light of day at the FAA and that's an especially painful realization for the families of those who died in the Max crashes. It angers us to see how how much. Boeing did to cover this up and how much FAA is done. To help them cover it up Michael Stu Mos daughter twenty, four year old Samya arose to mow was on the plane that crash last year Ethiopia, he believes evidence in this report now shows that the first plane crash in Indonesia was preventable within covering up to keep the Max in the air after the lion aircrash so that it crashed again in Ethiopia and killed my daughter. was unforgivable in a statement a Boeing spokesman says, the company has learned many hard lessons from the plane crashes and its mistakes and has made fundamental changes to the company's safety culture and protocols. As a result. The House Transportation Committee is now drafting legislation to improve at a oversight and certifying planes. A Senate committee is expected to take its own at a reform bill later today. David. SCHAPER NPR news.

First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions

"Our here, and today we have a super charger network update, which is nice. Little throwback for those of you that have listened to the podcast for a long time I used to do those every day at the start of the podcast. We also have some news on Berlin paint a small little updates slash rumor. I would call it on Battery Day and the news on Daimler Nikola Motor as. Well. Tesla stock with another really strong day to day even though it was relatively quiet news wise finishing up seven point two percent to four hundred and forty nine dollars seventy six sense that compared to the Nasdaq up one point two percent we'll start off with these super charger news. This is coming from Brian Mac se on twitter, who is a long-time listener and I believe Patriot supporter of. The podcast who happen to come across a super charger network location under construction near Firebaugh California. As far as I can tell, this location had not yet been noticed. So upon Brian tweeting these out Tesla Motors Club Forum members did some digging on this and they were actually able to find that the permit for the site as well as planning documents for sort of a conglomerate travel center at. This location those documents disclosed that Tessa. We'll have fifty six spots for Tesla charging at this travel center. Assuming each of those spaces has a super charger associated with it. fifty-six chargers would put this as the largest superchargers location in North America and possibly in the world surpassing cattleman city in the United States at forty chargers and believe in China, there are a couple locations that have fifty chargers. So. Pretty exciting this location is between San Francisco and La driven miles. It's about two hundred and thirty miles from La and about one hundred and fifty from San Francisco. It's not clear if these will be all version three superchargers but I'd have to imagine that they would be and as far as other features go. It looks like about two thirds of them thirty eight of the fifty six. will be pull through hopefully accommodating the use of a trailer and making things a bit easier for the cyber truck and potentially also accommodating the semi of course, cincy unveil of the semi. We haven't heard much more about Tesla's mega charger plans. So hopefully, we get a bit of an update on that during battery debt. Right next today is an update on Gigabytes Lynn gigafactory underscore four on twitter. Has Been following. The gigafactory development closely looks like some equipment has started to arrive, and some of that equipment carries branding for Geico Tikey Shah? which is a paintshop solutions provider based in Milan Italy. There's also some signing there that is co branded between that company and desolate GEICO take show describes their approach by saying quote innovation is our weapon of choice were constantly increasing the technological possibilities in. Order to meet the needs of the most demanding customers in a highly competitive sector and quote they also seem to be heavily focused on sustainability and they're their paintshop operations. They have a project called the party's project, and they say quote with the Party's project launched in two thousand, five Geico Kotecki show was the world's first company to offer zero environmental impact paintshop reducing consumption by seventy percent and. So. Without really knowing much more about the company does he pretty good fit for Tesla we know Tesla has pretty big aspirations with the shop and gigabyte Lin Yuan talked about it many times and even setting Matt aside, it's good to start to see some production equipment on the grounds of Giga Berlian and though I haven't seen it yet. Maybe this gives us another milestone to compare the progress with Giga Shanghai from what I can. Tell, it looks like paintshop equipment started being put in place at Giga. Shanghai. In early to mid August of two thousand, nineteen with production of course, then starting about four months later. So if that's the case, if Berlin falls a similar time line that could potentially project out to start production and January probably best to keep expectations for later than that but I do think it's helpful to keep an eye on how those timelines compare all Right next up today is something that could end up being completely nothing but I thought it was at least interesting enough to share earlier today Fred Lammert over at electric tweeted out a couple of images of him holding a pretty significantly sized battery cell and Fred Ask if anyone has seen this battery cell before or you have some information about them, please reach out to him. A says also by the way, this new cell May. Or may not have been made by Tesla I don't really have much speculation to add this. A couple of people on twitter were saying that it does look like a tablets design which we've talked about and past episodes. But really just pointing out to say could be something to keep an eye out for the next couple of days if electric is able to you dig up a little bit more information on whatever this ends up being. Last couple of pieces of news here. Today I on Daimler Daimler has reached a settlement with the US government to pay one and a half billion dollars and settlements and penalties to the US and California State to resolve allegations of Daimler using emissions test cheating software to conceal the actual emissions from vehicles even with the settlement, and despite the fact that engineers at the EPA found software designed to cheat the emissions tests. Damore denies wrongdoing saying quote as stated in the consent degrees the. Class Action Settlement the company denies the authorities allegations as well as the class action plaintiffs claims and does not admit any liability to the United States. California plaintiffs or otherwise and quote. So I don't know kind of disappointing to see a settlement of that nature that doesn't require the admission of fault with such seemingly strong evidence against Daimler right lasting today is a quick update on Nikola Motors. It sounds like from the comments yesterday that most of you preferred that I don't do significantly. Deep dive on this budget stick to the high level updates, which I'm totally fine with if Trevor Milton wanted to come back on the PODCAST, I would probably do that. Otherwise, we'll stick with these updates anyway today the Wall Street Journal and other outlets are reporting that the Justice Department has started to also investigate Nikola Motors due to the allegations that they had misled investors by making exaggerated claims about their technology I know that sounds similar to

Tanya Rad Breaks Down Why Chris Evans Is Trending and That NSFW Photo

"I. The question was raised moments ago from Tanya. Rod. Do you have nudes on your camera roll nudes of ourselves? Or other acts ourselves yourself tubs, you got a naked photos of yourself on your phone. I store all those in heart. hard-drive dry that's appropriate. Put them in hard drive. Yeah. Exactly WanNA put your nudes in hard drive. Howdy any on your phone? No no no no. No. No No Oh yeah tons member. I. Got Mine in Dropbox in our company dropbox. Yeah I remember that yeah. Yeah. The company's never been the same actually. Transporter Yeah John IV I I mean his his beard grew in just that dropbox he didn't eat. Only our engineer. Only, our engineer Andy. You'd think alien shown to everybody. Left. So He left you send nudes that he quit. He said send them. I accidentally uploaded them because I was charged changing phones, and so all of my photos downloaded onto my work computer as their reason, we're having this conversation. First of all, do you have any news on your phone I? Do not take pictures of myself like that Let. Me Tell you why. That's a smart idea. Why? I can't. Connect, dot. Thank you don't don't need you to tell me because Chris Evans over the weekend he was. He had he shared a screen recording of his family playing the game heads up the game where you kind of the clue on your phone and it's on your head and so it's on your phone. Obviously. So when the video ended a camera roll displayed on the screen, it showed a photo of his manhood. And he quickly quickly took it down but obviously, people got screen shots and stuff like that. So this story went everywhere. It's not one hundred percent sure that that photo wasn't necessarily his phone or that it was his manhood in the photo. But I mean, the reactions were seriously like the tweets everything that happening over the weekend or so funny girl said I did not have Chris Evans accidentally sharing his. Manhood picks on instagram stories as one of my co Bingo. But Twenty twenty roles on I'm going to need a minute. Captain America. Let me shield down Do we have the photo, you put the photo on the report. No. Everywhere for this. Some described it in positive light. I guess I could just say and some deny another. Other person a tweet that said. It looked like a picture of a manhood and like a giant sidewalk Filled the entire sidewalk and I said, oops Chris Evans fell. Confused I don't. Go. When you go to the restaurant and they and you get a delicious salad and Go from yes. Would you like some pepper with that? Yes. Pepper back. To the camera I, can't even understand what that is sending texts. I can't tell what that is. Senate in the text, it's currently at ninety eight percent on rotten tomatoes apparently. Bigger. Ken. Why would you? Not Put that picture in the report I. Mean That's all I. WanNa see. I KINDA WANNA. See to now. Yeah compare and contrast. It's like. I can't I already got in trouble for having minute in dropbox I can't have this report. We're not going to this. This is you're doing a report.

Okay, yeah don't don't include me on this one that's saying it's inappropriate. It's totally inappropriate. How disgusted am I even listening to? Wish. Because you put in the report normally she puts a photo evidence of things in my report page, she skipped it. I'm GonNa from Eastern and Tanya right now walking around with that thing.

Curtis Saunders and his 1914 Model T

"This is Robert loss of welcome to another episode of cars that matter today we're joined by Dr Curtis Saunders, Mechanical Engineer Researcher at Johns Hopkins University Tower Things in Baltimore today, Curtis agreed Robert. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Curtis is here because he's the owner of a nineteen fourteen Ford model t now I guess I could make all kinds of jokes curtis about how you really need a PhD in mechanical engineering to work on one of these. But I'm sure it doesn't hurt. I we're going to dig into the history of the Ford model teachers to understand a little bit better. Why was such important automobile? The Ford model t is often named the car the century. Obviously, it's an important car. Why is it important to you? I should say while I'm a mechanical engineer I've always loved history. I'm always been a student of history and history has always been a passion of mine. So the model t important to to me. One of the reasons is just the impact it had on American history and just the general in addition just to manufacturing in general the manufacturing methods behind the model. t some of the things that Henry Ford merely pioneered with the car I was just really fast anyhow had in areas as well as the impact car itself had in American culture from what I understand. They made about fifteen million and they had quite a lifespan and first one came. Out in Nineteen Oh eight is that right? Yes. That is correct Kinda wrap things up by one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven when by that time was almost as much of an antique as it is today it's amazing how long the car ran and even through its cycle while the appeared. So the car changed a lot of the underlying the chemical structure while had some changes remain basically the same, the same four cylinder engine, the chew speed transmission. The bones are really did run twenty years I remember years and years ago in my former life I worked with the operating engineers, UCLA. What do we have these emergency generator rooms now ucla campus was built back in the nineteen twenties and we actually had an emergency generator that was still powered by a Model T. engine this back in the eighties imagine that that old engine was deemed reliable enough and competent enough to be working all those decades later. Really Testament to the Durance of that particular design you talk about Henry, Ford and how the model t was really the first mass produced car but I almost get the feeling. Henry could have been making washing machines or vacuum cleaners in a lot of ways the model t was sort of a test bed for the whole production line process actually rates moving assembly line process was not unique to model ts and applied to so many different types of products from airplanes, trains, cars, like you said, also goods washing machines TV's. Of that type of process, we take it for granted now, but someone had to think of it I in there had to be a pioneer that type of industry that really started this whole thing not only introducing a whole new way of making things it was done. So efficiently and relatively inexpensively that I gave any American with a halfway decent paying job the opportunity to own a car or it's eight a here's rolling car off the assembly. Line every ninety seconds from what I understand though maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong the model t was such a grand vision of Henry Ford's that he actually set up manufacturing facilities or plants all around the country, and even in other comments, he truly believed it was the car for the masses I. Don't think he really viewed it as just something for a specific region or even a specific country her specific time thought he'd really. distill down essential components vehicle and that that's what anyone in the world would what I guess. There was more than just one model T. everything from pickup trucks to delivery vans they made a whole bunch of them didn't they? Absolutely, there is various types of cars from to Cedars. Cedars even enclosed cars and open cars later and the whole line of trucks. You can even buy a model t rolling chassis and build your own body for it. If you didn't like what Fort is offering, you could just build your own. You're not even limited cars like you said, the power plant could by the Ford engine, the Ford, power plant and just apple sorts of other applications that would make a nice Margarita blender wouldn't it just about the right amount of horsepower to get that is just just right. Everybody knows what one looks like but I suspect most people don't really understand what it takes to. Make one move got a little engine. What is like three liter inline four or something like that it's a little inline four and it has a two speed transmission. What's the horsepower output on that engine? Would you figure it was rated at twenty two and a half horsepower? Wow. Okay. There's a lot of lawnmowers. Today might a riding mower hardware store that has more horsepower than this little novelty

Plants Engineered to Remove Indoor Air Toxins

"Welcome to the talking biotech podcast. It's Wiki podcast about agriculture and medicine with him emphasis on biotechnology and the good things we can do for people and the planet. My Name's Kevin fulltime professor and. Science. Communicator. Worries about your understanding about science and about some of the major issues which new technologies can play an important role and today we're going to revisit a episode. We did last year, we're speaking with Dr Stewart, Strand from the University of Washington civil and Environmental Engineering Program, and we're going to re-explore his air purifying plants. So there's been some developments over the last year or so that are really important. So welcome back to the PODCAST. Dr Strand. Thank you. Yeah. It's really nice that you're back because this was an intriguing topic to me. And maybe we need to start fresh for listeners. But back in twenty nineteen, you talked about plants that could remove impurities from indoor air. and. Why do you think that this is necessary and is it really a problem? Yes, it really is a problem Our homes are contaminated with gashes. Chemicals such as Benzine and Formaldehyde. ACURA. Lead chloroform is president are indoor air, and these are all either proven or probable human carcinogens. So these are important even at very low levels that they occur in the hall mainly because our most vulnerable populations, children, and older people as well. spend all their time in the home and are exposed to these chemicals continuously. Okay where do they come from? Well busy comes from fuel storage in attached garages. Lawn more fuel gasoline contains a lot of busy and can get out of the tank even with voters car Benzine also comes from outdoors. It also comes from cigarette smoking or any kind of smoking and the home. Sometimes, Campbell's can emit. And It's approved human carcinogen chloroform an interesting one with chlorinated municipal water performance farm from the chlorination process and reactions with trace organic compounds, maybe water and that chloroform which is a probable human carcinogen. Is a mid into the air when you use hot water in the hold like showering or or washing of. Procedures Machines admit chloroform into the air FORMALDEHYDE. A lot of people are familiar with that. It comes out of the glues we used in pressboard carpets and so I'm but it also comes from things like smoking and cooking. In the home too so that at that's hard to avoid. And do you think that our big push to have more energy efficient homes? You know we're we're getting double pane windows and really good insulation around our doors and thresholds that don't leak is this just exacerbated the problem? A yes. It has as well recognized to be a part of the problem of that. Don't have as much Eric's change in a lot of the homes. That we that have been retrofitted with installation. That we should have there should be frequent air exchanges in the home and. Even. Those though will Lee some of these residual gaseous compounds. Okay. So we have this problem of at least some level of. Volatile compounds that are present inside of our indoor air that may be there exceedingly small amounts, but still represent some finite risk and. Now, you have a solution to help clean those out a just with plants that have been specifically engineered to deal with those chemistries. So remind me again about the first invention which was both those eighty what what is that in? How does it work? Well Pathos Ivy. The last name is the criminal Maurya around the trunk as tropical plant. Many people have it in their homes. It's also called Devil's Ivy in some places And it is very common house plant very easy to grow It doesn't flour in the home So it's a less of a bio safety risk in the ecology and. It is a house plant that is rare in the fact that it has been genetically modified.

"engineer" Discussed on Developer Tea

"There's two more things that I want you to let go of to leave behind. . On your pathway to becoming a software engineer. . And realistically you're going to be on pathway indefinitely and that kind of inspires the next two things. . The first one is the belief that there is a perfect tech stack waiting to be discovered. . This is an easy thing to believe because there are people who have bought in very deeply. . To, , given tech stack in that stack works really well for them and perhaps when they write a blog post or they do a podcast, , they go and speak at a conference. . They talk about that stack as if it's kind of a one-size-fits-all solution or as if it's the pinnacle of computer, science? , ? But the truth is that there is no one perfect tech stack. . How can this be? ? When we're told this over and over, , and over that, , we're supposed to be refining our tools and. . Building new ones and abstracting on top of those and getting better and better. . The truth is that your tech stack is only part of the equation in you are a huge factor in that equation. . Think about it for a second you are part of the tech stack. . The tech stack doesn't build itself and it doesn't exist as some kind of autonomous entity right you are working with the tech stack. . And if it doesn't you or if it doesn't fit the thing that you're trying to do. . And it doesn't matter what? ? About it at a conference or on. . Hacker News. . So you're not going to find the perfect tech stack and that should also feel liberating. . It's a little bit disappointing because it'd be nice if we all agreed and we just went in one direction and we could find a tool that just works for everyone magical but that's not going to happen and that can be liberating because we can let go of that constant pursuit and be okay we can choose. . Tools that we like we can choose tools that are safe or we can accept the fact that the job that we have or working with a tool that <hes> <hes> maybe has some downfalls right? ? It has some weak spots that doesn't necessarily mean the end of the world it certainly doesn't mean that your engineering organization doesn't see the light. . Once, , you are able to accept the fact that there's not a perfect tech stack. . Then you can work towards making the one that you have more valuable. . Now have one final thing that I. . Want you to let go of in this really is an underpinning theme of this podcast entirely, , and that is that coding is not the job. . Let go of the illusion that coding is the job. . And understand that there is so much more to being a software engineer than just writing code and to illustrate this point, , I want you to do a kind of mental exercise <hes>. . This is just a thought experiment imagine that you have your job today. . You have your job today but. . That we've somehow removed the responsibility of writing code from your. . Plate. . You no longer have to write the code. . You still have to go through the same thought processes that you had before you still have to think through all the same scenarios. . You have to understand the people that you work with. . You still have to work with the same <hes>. . You know stakeholders, , etc. . How would your job look different? ? What would change about your job? ? It's important to understand that there are people who are hired just to be coders, , but this is a fragile job. . It's a job that could easily be replaced. . And if you're just now starting out in your career, , especially, , if you have many years <hes> theoretically in front of you in your career then focusing on just coding is not kind of the pinnacle of what you'll do in your career. . It certainly will be a part of it. . But <hes> imagine that your coding is only one tool in a very wide array of tools that we already just mentioned. . Right imagine taking that tool away what is left in your skillset focus on developing those things as much and perhaps even more than you're coding skills because they're going to. . Pay You back in spades, , not just in money, but , certainly in relationships and. . Personal fulfilment. .

"engineer" Discussed on Front End Happy Hour

"Welcome to another episode of the Front End. Happy our podcast in this episode. We're joined by a two NETFLIX's engineers Chevron and Michael to talk with us about ecosystem engineering at Net flicks. Trevan and Michael. Can you give us a brief introduction of who you are what you do and what your favorite happy our beverages? My name is Michael James. I've been at Netflix's for nine years. This is actually my team that flicks the current team. I'm on is called device reliability. And so what we're tasked to do is any TV or set-top box like a Roku or cable box that you might have in your house if something should go wrong on it like you can't log in words crashing where there's lots of playback errors or there's a lot of startup errors. Anything like that Kua. We is bad you get lots of buffering. It's our teams job to detect that remotely figure out what broke who broke it and get them to fix it so half the time. It's netflix breaking stuff. Because Netflix's changing all the time in the cloud and pushing new things the UI is changing doing experiments and the other half of the time. It's either the internet or it's the what we call partners the Roku the Samsung's the comcast of the world. They've made some change. We have to ask them what they changed and hopefully get them to fix it. So that's what that's what we do and I do in a an awesome and then what's your favorite happy hour beverage Right now I am drinking Don Julio Hole too so good choice. That is a great choice. I had to choose something very good to put me into mood to being a talking sort of frame. It should help. We have found that that actually helps. Just loosen you just enough so far. It's working so my name is charlene owner. I'm being at Netflix's for about four years now right now. This is my second team. I'm on partner infrastructure and what our team does is. We have a box called the the reference automation environment and this provides a lot of services and an entry point for all partners to run their metrics sweets on so all the partners that need certification to have netflix on their boxes. Whether it be. Mvp BOXES CD vices. They use the ray to actually a make sure they get run. They get results back There are a lot of services that do you know. Dns marking that talking puty and do all sorts of cool stuff We also provide a lot of services internally do teams across partner ecosystem and yeah so prior to that. I was at Bahrain's nearing so. Why used to work with partners awesome. I love that you both have been on two different teams to. Yeah that's awesome gem. You and I've been on the same team the entire time we've been at. Let's run a good team or we don't believe that that may be it. Yeah exactly well. Let's give introduction of today's Panelists Jeb. Young Senior Engineer Net flicks. I've only been here for For years so maybe Michael you can give me some tips on making another four. And I'm Ryan Burgess. I may suffer engineering manager at Netflix. And I've been here for just over five years in each episode of the Front End Happier. Podcast we'd like to choose a keyword. If it's mentioned at all in the episode we will all take a drink. What did we decide? Today's keyword is quality. I don't remember say quality I figure I heard Quality Docu automatically 'cause they kind of go hand in hand so that makes sense all right. Well let's jump in both Iran and Michael. You gave a little bit of descriptions early in your intros. But I'm really curious. How do you describe? What IS ECOSYSTEM? Engineering NF flakes. So I've my previous role. I was a manager also and interest netflix's have to do a lot of recruiting and I'd have to answer this question a lot. Like what do you do? And what is this an unusually posted by saying you ever go into a store costco someplace and you see the. Tv's for sale and on the box they have netflix on them. Netflix's already pre install on it or if you could buy a Roku already got netflix on their more comcast box you may or may not get it but if it does get loaded somehow. Netflix's getting on all these devices. How does that happen? What happens is there's a team at net flicks that makes the Netflix's player code and we package it up once a year and we call it the de k a software developers kit for the player and we might give it a name but every year we give it out to these partners in these partners are like Samsung L. G. Roku comcast of the world and they have to take it and make it work on their system. And so if you look at all the TV's out there and all the set top boxes you can see that you know they're different chipsets. There's different hardware. They probably have different compilers and compilers settings. They've God's maybe their own libraries that they have to do they have a different os on their TV. Every device out there. Basically a custom made device. And so how do you get those Netflix's player which looks pretty much the same once you start the APP whether it's on a Roku or a Samsung Smart TV or a cable set top box? How is it ended up at experiences? Pretty much universal. I would say in how that happens is there are other teams that work with these partners to make sure that AAA compiles and be that. It's good that doesn't crash We have a suite of tasks and Trevan helps with that that area. The part and my previous manager job was in area too. We don't let net Netflix. Go out or be sold or pre installed on and device unless we know that device is going to have good quality with it. I said it cheers. Cheers cheers cheers and how that happens. Is these partners. Have to run a whole bunch of tests and pass these tests and there's a a Cloud-based tests service that Netflix's made where they can take their device whether they're working in China or whether they're working in Japan or Korea or the US or anywhere in the world they plug it into Internet. They log into this cloud service and they can run tests and we can see these tests if they pass fail and so on so forth and was passed all these tests then it goes out into the field and people can buy them what people have them in their homes or they sign up for cable service and they get this box and they start net flakes. And if it's working great we can see the metrics remotely from here 'cause all these boxes and TV's are sending this logs all the time and if there's a problem we should be able to detect that and try to get it fixed so long story. Short Netflix's works with a whole bunch of other companies to get these apps working and what's out there are jobs not done. We have to make sure that it keeps working. And so that's where he may be a deluded to like. Qe which maybe you could explain. What the Kiwi Patrick. Is that your your teams looking at sure. So Kua we. Quality of experience cheers. Cheers kind of set. You up for that one. They are metrics that deal with how the APP appears to the user. So this would be. Things like is video smooth. Does it look like high. Bit Rate. So it looks like very high quality not just st but also hd for K. buffering a lot. Which hopefully it's not a re buffer is when you're watching in the middle of playback and there's this kind of spinner that appears on the screen where it's trying to load and it's ten percent twenty percent. Seventy five percent. Ninety nine percent starts playing again. It's probably because there's some interference on the network or there's a bug in the buffering on the device we want to keep all that buffering to a minimum so that when you start watching it smooth. There's no interruptions but it's not just limited to that if you have trouble starting the APP or if you're in the middle of the APP crashes or there's like network fluctuations where it goes high quality low quality too much on. These are all things that could be addressed usually on the device side and try to minimize those as much as possible wherever possible. Even things outside of the network that users network or the service provider's network lately. Yeah that's another one. I forgot about that one. The time it takes for you to press the button versus how long it takes to start the actual playback. Hopefully it's around four or five seconds but on some devices we see. It's as long as twenty seconds thirty seconds. That's something that could be fixed on a device. Hopefully I think that's always been something that I've actually been amazed at is just Michael. You paint the picture of the ecosystem of all the different TV devices. But when I think about it too is the Netflix. App is being built for something like a roku stick. It's a lower powered device. And then you have something lake the playstation four or Xbox at you can also play on. It has a lot bigger assessor. I think is really interesting. How you there's large ecosystem of devices that we are supporting and so I can imagine that becomes a lot more challenging in your world to to support all those different variables are those devices and especially when you think that every one of those devices basically a custom made device very few devices. Look or act exactly the same from the code perspective and so it's it's a challenge to make sure that when you start Netflix's whether on a fifteen dollars stick if you bought it on sale the way up to four hundred dollars playstation or even a three thousand dollar four K. SMART TV that the Netflix's experience is pretty universal. On all of them. You still log in the same. You still have your same catalog. He still are able to see and navigate through the you. I pretty much the same. It's pretty familiar despite that range and I think that's pretty amazing. What Ryan I think? I WANNA point out that the game consoles do not come under g good point so meaning. Eeg would be the ecosystem engineering nearing group. Yeah they do. Share allotted the same player. Coon the and they do share the same underlying Java script code and the code so a lot of that is the same the main differences. It's not made by partner. There's a dedicated Netflix team. That makes the player for playstation saint for xbox and so there's a problem we can go render those teams which is like one floor above us. Say Did you know that there's a bug and they can fix it. If there's a problem with Samsung we have to go. We usually have a engineer on site a Netflix's employees who specializes with Samsung or works a lot with a certain partner and shrove on when when you you're on that team what was your partner so he's to work with CISCO WITH EASY so if there was a problem in the certain partners device our first up would be to go and see if that partner engineer we call them. The NETFLIX's employ has any insight. If they don't then we have to escalate to the partner of themselves so we have to either send email conference call or do something. Maybe there's someone we know. In country athletes now have offices in Taiwan and Korea and so maybe they can take it over from us. I think there is a certain kind of a chain of command there. Yeah like most people inside e typically go to the park junior and say I know Michael might say I'm seeing when I was to be a partner engineer it would be like hey big played delays on easy box right you know. It seems like they pushed a new form. Where on certain? Nate and the play. Which is the time taken for the title to actually start playing from the time when the user presses it it's gone twenty percent more percent more but then the engineer would actually reach back to the partner or in certain cases we have coalition partner engineering. Their tears so there's apartment engineer who works in the operator level. There's a partner engineer who works at the s O sea level so the associates his system on chip on chip right so people like dot com and ham logic and things like that. So we have certain implementations based on these. Soc's and certain parliamentary partner engineers would actually work exclusively with those associate companies. So then you know we. We consider those scaling projects because they're serving more than one operator. And so you know it'll be a to them and they will talk to the nurse it kind of worries on the problem and the situation. That was one of surprise when I joined. This group is a lot of people. When they hear Netflix's they think if I'm going to be an engineer at Netflix's I'm doing stuff in the cloud or I'm doing stuff on the UI. Maybe I'm doing stuff on the player but they don't realize there's a big team here that is device from where specific that they're actually working with system on chips and they're trying to get Netflix's to work at the hardware level amongst the whole eco-system lack of a better word of device chip said sin everything out there and so a lot of people are kind of surprised at like I did not know that you work with device drivers and C..

"engineer" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily

"Engineering daily happy to be here. Your book. We're recent book is called big business and and there are many different forms of big business that you explore in your book. I'd like to go through a few different sectors of big business briefly just to get your condensed perspective on each of these industries and give the listeners a little bit of exposure to you're thinking i the banking sector. I think the american banking sector has become come underrated. It's arguably the best financial sector in the world for re allocating capital to growth companies venture capital. Does this but it's not just venture capital private equity. It's our entire banking system. I fully accept the criticism that our financial sector had a great deal to to do with the two thousand and eight crash. That's correct but one thing i tried to do in my book is to give people a balanced perspective of all of the facts and overall right right now the u._s. financial system is not out of control and it's doing many good things for us so i think of my book overall a corrective on the factual side healthcare healthcare u._s. Healthcare system is far too expensive in my view is the sector of our economy where business and business incentives work the worst asia too much consolidation and our hospital sector. We're very bad at cost control and there you have the worst tendencies of impatient american consumers. There's over promising american politicians and pretty greedy. American business people are working together in what is somewhat of a dysfunctional direction so that part part of american business. I'm pretty critical of quote. Unquote big tech big tech means different things to different people but right now we're in a world world where both political parties intellectuals on both sides are calling big tech evil saying it's ruining our democracies <hes> that it's destroying families the actual reality is from a lot of big tech companies. We get wonderful services often for free or very cheaply. The criticisms about destroying democracy are very much overstated or lacking in evidence. I do think there are some problems with big tech. People might waste too much time on their smartphones. There's some evidence say that teenage girls become more depressed because of social media but overall consumer and societal gains from the big tech companies have been very very large and i mean amazon facebook google apple and others big tech is distinctive from other industries reason that it's easy to imagine these big tech companies getting into almost any other business line and it it's much harder to imagine wells wells fargo getting into a business that is not closely related to finance or imagining a pharmaceutical company getting into streaming video something like that. Why is it that big. Tech companies have this quality of being able to move into such a wide range of business lines well. I'm not sure that they do. I think a lot of the big tech companies are not very good at managing labor intensive processes. It's one reason why they've been bad at lobbying and public relations a few years ago. A lot of people ask the question question well. Why isn't facebook selling us all insurance after all it has a pipeline to so many millions of americans but it doesn't seem like that's about to happen so <hes> services that are rapidly scalable and partly or fully solvable by software and by hiring clemson clusters of talented software engineers and other sorts of tech workers the big tech companies are great at so amazon expands into cloud computing for instance but i think what they can do is nonetheless remarkably limited and even amazon which is in some ways the most versatile of the tech companies still far smaller than say walmart is in our modern environment you bring up cloud computing and cloud computing is something that our society has come to rest on like amazon web services went down our society would fall apart in in many ways to to a certain extent similarly to how the fall all of two thousand and eight of the financial institutions had a too big to fail quality where it it started to to fracture the potential for society diety to function properly are there ways in which the ubiquity of these big tech companies gives them a too big to fail quality. That's concerning to you at all well. I think there's a national security issue with a number of tech services including also as related to our power grid but if you ask the question would you rather have this issue two issues tackled by say amazon with a very high levels of talent ability to purchase the best i protection that's available and also they have a pretty close one to one working relationship with say the department of defense or intelligence agencies or or should we split at big tech and f seven smaller companies with less talent fewer resources harder to monitor. I actually would rather prefer to work with the giants. I know we are still vulnerable. We've always been vulnerable in some key ways but nonetheless. I think you know put your money where the talent is essentially when it comes to national security another issue that can emerge from the sprawl of big companies like this was the case with finance companies. He's this is the case with companies like amazon is that when you get this very complex web of incentives you have a widespread potential for fraud frauds if potential for fraud in the amazon marketplace in google and facebook ad marketplaces and we have no way to gauge the amount of fraud. Is that a concern that we need to worry about well if the question is simply. Do we need to worry about it. <hes> yes but if you ask what are among your most reliable and predictable experiences that can as a consumer most of them involve big business you stand a much better chance dealing with walmart or amazon and then say trying to call in a local television repair person who will tell you whether or not your saddest broken and how much it costs to fix it so i view that as net upgrade should we be more vigilant against fraud of course does the internet as a hall help us monitor fraud in many small businesses it does so if you have a local restaurant toronto makes people sick or doesn't sell them the proper products you go to yelp or tripadvisor. It's actually pretty easy to find out about that. These big tech companies they often unhappy mythos about them so google is about growing the world's information and making it more accessible. It's got an inspirational air to it. Facebook doc is about connecting the world to each other. These are ideologies that can appeal to certain people that can appeal to consumers they can appeal to potential employees the company but some of us we can get swept up in the ideology. What's the productivity of this kind of inspirational ideological india logical facet of businesses. Would it be more realistic and sobering if we thought of these companies more like just you boring utility companies please. Do we really want this inspirational element to it. I favor those ideologies for the most part. I've benefited from them greatly. I'm connect could two people around the entire world that helps what i do is a researcher and writer. I'm not saying it's all upside. Clearly it is not you can have certain bad. The ideas spread too quickly. You can have certain kinds of ideological bubbles become too popular <hes> but the extent to which something that was only a vague dream fifteen or twenty many years ago has become an stand she aided in our world and i can really without any kind of effort be in touch with someone in rural africa which i am on a regular basis this multiple times a week and i sent him money tried to help him out. That's the phenomenal development and my ability to learn about other places so you know the printing press every other major communications technology has had some downsides radiohead some downsides but i think the overall ledger on tech communication has been very strongly positive tiv- that individual in africa that you're referring to is that the person that you're sending all the money from your previous book too. That's correct. His name is yellen. He lives in lally bella. He has mobile access to the internet and did even before. I sent him any money his family has you know very hello very low annual income and he spends a lot of spare time on youtube. He loves church history so if you ask them about the fourth century armenian the christian church he knows all about it to me. That's pretty phenomenal that we have this in our world and it was not the case until quite recently and i can send him money and be in touch with him. Yeah tell me more about what kinds of cultural reflections you've had from your interactions with him. I have an understanding of how fragile progress in ethiopia is so the country has grown at around ten percent a year for ten years running which is phenomenal of course but they were starting at such a low level hugh. I have a sense of the political problems with some of the ethnic minorities. I have a better sense of what it's like to live in a town of about twenty thousand people people in the ethiopian highlands. I visited that town twice but still being in regular touch with someone. I learned things it gives me a greater awareness of global problems. It's like what's the economic potential for the town. What can it do. Why can it not do so again if you think of this and then people in africa south asia many other places learning from the technocratic expertise and other locales and improving their own local policies. I think those are just phenomenal gains and they're very much under aided by current discourse. How do you envision that changing because i've had similar experiences just from people who listened to a podcast and they reach out or want to interview somebody eighty in a market in salt lake interview somebody about software in vietnam for example and it's this really magical experience it feels an it's rare when you get on a skype call with somebody in a completely different place and it feels so much more magical and i mean speaking of inspiration compared compared to logging onto twitter in the morning which i also love but there's something to that and i feel like not many people experience it well. The more and more people are experiencing it a podcast for instance or growing. We're doing this podcast at a distance through skype which is owned by microsoft which supports it. That's also big tech so i think also any new technology we get better at using it with sometime. We learn how to curb the excesses and how regulate our own deployment of the technology so i think the benefits of the internet are really just getting underway compared to what is likely to follow over the next century. Your book is explicitly pro business. What are the most valid critiques of big business today. Well i would say my book is pro fact so in big business is at fault. I'm not at all shy in admitting that we discussed briefly the american medical establishment not long ago. I'm pretty critical of that mostly on the side of cost a for profit higher education. We've seen massive fraud there. That was a big business. It's now gotten smaller very quickly for the better her. I think rates have fraud in business. Transactions in general are pretty high but i also think if you look at how individuals behave outside of a business setting they tend to lie i at least as much but i do think you have particular sectors with the incentives and information are bad and for profit higher ed and parts of american healthcare would be examples of that and in those cases big business has not performed very well but that said i think when you look at it sector-by-sector company by company the overall record is much more positive than what you hear say from bernie sanders elizabeth warren or even donald trump loves to go after c._e._o.'s and companies..

"Software engineering daily dot com slash Mesa sphere. Tyler county. You're the author of stubborn attachments. Welcome back to software engineering daily. So your previous three books were about the state of the world today. And how we got to where we are. And what might happen in the near future your newer? Book stubborn attachments describes a philosophy that you've been working on for around. Twenty years describes a framework for making decisions in today's world. Describe the philosophy you outline. In stubborn attachments, and how it relates to your previous books stubborn attachments as a book is pro economic growth. It's pro capitalism argues that we do face ethical dilemmas in our world, but the only way we can possibly resolve those is to sustain ably increase the pie for everyone over long time frames. So I think of the book as trying to integrate economics and philosophy and to provide some very basic fundamental answers to the key questions. Facing us, my other books tend to be more. More connected to current affairs or more anecdotes or they have more proper nouns. You could say this is a very abstract book. It's quite short, and I've been working on it very slowly for a long time before we talk about the ideas, laid out. In stubborn attachments. We should give the listeners some motivation. These are mostly software engineers who are listening to this. Why should engineers care about philosophy engineers care about the world surrounding them? So typically initiate is focused on a small task. But obviously engineers are smarter than the population at large and wanted to have a sense of what they're doing fits into a bigger picture. I pretty often actually have engineers right me. And they say like all I wanna more rewarding job. I wanna do something that really helps the world why am I here? And I usually write them back and say, look, you're boosting economic growth, you're contributing to technological progress. The generation of new ideas, odd, see other people who should be worried about the engineers. So indirectly you could think of this as a very pro engineer work and try to put certain kinds of productive activity into a bigger picture. And I think it also can help us think that public policy especially in light of the fact, how software is increasingly guiding the flow of ideas, and it's influencing the thoughts of people the emphasis on philosophy becomes more important because we have to think more deeply about how to shape informational flows rather than how to make a better steel beam, for example. So it becomes more important to think about philosophy software. Engineers are building these tools, but we don't control whether people use them for good or for evil. Do engineers actually have to think more deeply about how their tools are used. Or are. We just thinking about how to make better steel beams. And we're not really responsible if those steel beams are used in weaponry. No, I think we should all think more deeply about how our outputs are used..

"You started this podcast about data engineering exclusively tell me your roadmap to to starting that why did you get interested enough in data engineering to start podcast entirely about it so i've worked as a systems administrator and as a software engineer and most recently as a quote unquote devops engineer take that as you will and i been interested in the data systems and the systems that are used for processing the data and the complexities around that for a while largely because of my roles of being responsible for those systems whether it's just you know managed managing the databases or as a software engineer being cognizant of the way the the database schema can impact the performance of an application or how that data can be used for other business purposes and there are a large number of podcasts in that are out there that address things like data science and you know maybe focused pacific ly on the hoodoo biko system or business intelligence systems but there wasn't anything that i had found that addresses more broadly the topic of data engineering and the people who are doing that work in seemed like something that was interesting both personally and it seemed like a topic area that didn't that wasn't receiving the attention that it was due and so i similar to when i started podcast out in it i saw gap in the market for broadcasts it was something that i wanted to listen to nobody else was doing it at the time so i decided that you know it was time for me to take up that mantle as well so far i've been happy with that decision and it's been growing slowly but steadily and i've been happy with how things been going that far and also is just an excuse for me to talk to intelligent and interesting people who are working in the space so that i can personally learn more about it.

"You started this podcast about data engineering exclusively tell me your roadmap to to starting that why did you get interested enough in data engineering to start podcast entirely about it so i've worked as a systems administrator and as a software engineer and most recently as a quote unquote devops engineer take that as you will and i been interested in the data systems and the systems that are used for processing the data and the complexities around that for a while largely because of my roles of being responsible for those systems whether it's just you know managed managing the databases or as a software engineer being cognizant of the way the the database schema can impact the performance of an application or how that data can be used for other business purposes and there are a large number of podcasts in that are out there that address things like data science and you know maybe focused pacific ly on the hoodoo biko system or business intelligence systems but there wasn't anything that i had found that addresses more broadly the topic of data engineering and the people who are doing that work in seemed like something that was interesting both personally and it seemed like a topic area that didn't that wasn't receiving the attention that it was due and so i similar to when i started podcast out in it i saw gap in the market for broadcasts it was something that i wanted to listen to nobody else was doing it at the time so i decided that you know it was time for me to take up that mantle as well so far i've been happy with that decision and it's been growing slowly but steadily and i've been happy with how things been going that far and also is just an excuse for me to talk to intelligent and interesting people who are working in the space so that i can personally learn more about it.

"It works really well for engineers whip providing really great value in helping people build really reliable systems based on what i've learned in the past but it's definitely very different experience because like you said chaos engineering it is very new system people who've been doing this type of work for the loss few years but the hide your chaos engineering wits continuous chaos it's automated you know really you should be injecting failure constantly end actually it shouldn't be causing an issue because you're infrastructures able to handle it it should be actually more rare that the chaos closes in issue in actually pages you and you need to fix something that's a really new area and i think it's exciting that we ought to be the pioneers in space i'm i've really enjoyed working with early customers who have come on bullish that doing really exciting things in space of chaos engineering and yeah like to me wanting to small company it's you know it's really like the startup stall have a very small office is not many of us i spent my first few weeks working remotely from stralia but i just think it's an exciting opportunity and i'm really glad to be on board okay dubuque oh thanks for coming out software engineer dale it's been great talking thank you very much thanks jeff live ramp is one of the fastest growing companies in data connectivity in the bay area and they're looking for senior level talent to join their team live ramp helps the world's largest brands activate their data to improve customer interactions on any channel or device the infrastructure is at a tremendous scale a five hundred billion node identity graph generated from over a thousand data sources running a eightyfive pedal bike bite duke cluster and application servers that

"Way more things hitting our pub sub we spin up more more pups up that this this break up is actually allowing as some really interesting use cases round that for the ops side for the ops people the one i'm seeing that's very interesting is the built in replication so there's obviously replication that you can do with kaffa with near maker with catholic connect but those are when when you have to force somebody to set something up they'll often either set it up wrong or it will take them or time and so what i really prefer to see is built in replication and that built in replication makes it much easier to do highly visible things and as a direct result the customer usage the customer success there is oh yes we can have an active active and it's going to do the replication for us i saw this when h base rolled out replication before it was really painful they rolled out replication and it was people were were actually talking about how well it worked people were successful win it or they didn't have to worry about did that get replicated did we set that up right it was out of the box good a good customer experience in this kind of what i'm looking for from pulsar so see assia stopping right save became crystal clear to me that the that's data engineering thought machine learning engineer reid sobbing anyone who's managing this he's yeah definitely infrastructure their mead it engineering and an end to kind of go back to your question before about israel time a done deal is is really coming for now we'd iot yet and you had this excellent episode with any language of the you know reinforcement learning is really interesting so much research but we'll kind of to me the crux of that is we wanna move we wanna shift away from predictive analytics were assigning labels correctly hopefully too prescriptive.

"All of dna s but there's not much you can do about that other than have a different dna s provider have multiple routes and then if you don't use a discovery or your discovery is based upon dna name and your services can't talk to each other will that's that's where things meltdown because if that's if that's one of those base building blocks you've used in you you expect it to be reliable and expected to be there and it goes away that the house of cards kinda crumbles and did your company needs to build a new app but you don't have the spare engineering resources there are some technical people in your company who have time to build apps but they're not engineers they don't know java script or iowa asher android and that's where out systems comes in out systems is a platform for building low code apps as enterprise grows it needs more and more apps to support different types of customers and internal employee use cases do you need to build an app for inventory management does your bank need a simple mobile app for mobile banking transactions do you need an app for visualizing your customer data out systems has everything you need to build release and update your apps without needing an expert engineer and if you are an engineer you will be massively productive without systems find out how to get started with low code apps today at out systems dot com slash s e daily there are videos showing how to use the out systems development platform and testimonials from enterprises like fico mercedes benz and safeway and i love to see new people exposed to software engineering that's exactly what out systems does out systems enables you to quickly build web and mobile applications whether you are an engineer or not check out how to build low code apps by going to out systems dot com slash s e daily thank you to out systems for being a new sponsor of software injuring daily and you're building something that's really cool and very much needed in the world the thank you out systems.

"Ron licht is the author of managing the unmanageable iran welcomed to software engineering daily eight thank you i have a bunch of questions for you about management particularly managing software engineers would you have a ton of experience in and the questions that i wanna start with our mostly related to experiences i have had personally being managed by engineers engineering managers end as well as some experience managing engineers myself and the first question i have is something that is very close to my heart because it it i would say is the number one frustration slash difficulty i had as an engineer and that is the question of boring work so if you're if you're managing engineers and the engineers are doing work that is frankly boring i mean this is a frequent thing that's gonna come up how do you keep engineers engaged when the work that they have to do is boring or otherwise uninteresting to them well i think the first thing you need to think about is what's the what's the contribution that works going to make to the product to the company to the customers to the team into the world one of the one of the fundamental rules that managers have is to connect the dots basically between the worked at any individual programmers doing and the and the contribution to all those places to the to the team to the product to the to the company into the world and in a what it is really helpful to work in a company that's got a company mission that people can get behind but fundamentally and jeff i'm i imagine this is true for you it's certainly true for me most of us got into engineering because we wanted to make a difference in the world and knowing that and eat.

"The advice i give up a lot of younger engineers nowadays because allow the people who go to these coating book camps and they they sort or try to teach you to become what's called a full stack engineer sort sort sort of like a jackofalltrades if you will right but i i think it is very difficult to be a full stack engineer because judge jess a very small part of software engineering is difficult enough and also the context which between working on the uri versus work on the back in verses working on maybe some now working eight issues is is very challenging so i always recommend people to focus on what area and that's what i did and i feel like i i was able to get deeply enough on just a you i designing engineering part and eventually i was able to lead a team on my skills developed in the area cool so ray you start your career often cells and trading you realize i like building things but probably they're still something saudi that that likes finance you start to work in his engine nearing jobs bring a full circle how do you get to where you are a day had your offering finance back into europe into your life sure so so uh the company i was at montage studio eka acquired it got quite by back and company and i knew that i didn't really want to work on back in technology so i i was looking for my neck's opportunity and i was thinking okay since i worked in on the business side of things i worked somewhere in design and also in software engineering so i've done these three pieces the natural intersection of these three pieces is product management.

"They can also tell you about their experience there because sometimes from douse i accompany may look really promising but from from the inside there are a number of problems they may want to avoid so so i i wanted to build this network with the software engineer in crowd here so i i went to a hacker thon put up by google and i met a guy there his name is charles and charles turn out to be one in the original four engineers who build the entire i tuned stack for apple backing the '90s after apple bought sun jam so he is a more a older engineer a very senior engineer and he is a very very good technical architect and i i work with him on the heck with on i knew that i wanted to work with him at some point so i stayed in touch with him over almost two years i i keep asking him as head why are you working on like i evolved to work with you on something like let me know what can i do and eventually he went through a startup called montage studio which is a sort of founded by the team of folks who came out of apple when next so he went there and he's like hey i i'm i'm here i'm working on some kusov issue com and that went there and there was my very first software engineering gig that's really cool so can you give people would like tell them exactly how you call the beta that relationship with him like you met him at this event and then like where do they were did it go over the next how long it took you to get this job you have coffee once a month you sent an email of interesting articles how'd you keep their relationship going yeah so i i tried to do both so trough actually lived in texas and he he was doing consulting gigs of the time so he would travel back and forth and i i would just paying him out say okay wearing towel next and i knew that he'd love to go to meet ups too so i was okay okay let's go check out this meet up together and then won't go and then we'll we'll listen to some tech talk which had the bear and they i.

"Listening and let's get back to the show lynch ty is the founder of key values led welcomed a software engineer daily hein thanks for having me yeah it's great to have you we're talking today about company values and how that pertains to an engineering team you have built a platform called key values will get into what the platform does but first of all how do you define values as they pertain to engineering teams or that's a good question so unlike company values oncourt ice which are a little bit different the way that i have defined values for my website is these are things that engineers like you or me care about and prioritise when were evaluating different job opportunities so if you want to join the team that you know really as laid on meetings cause you really don't like having meetings that is an important value to you at as an example so there's an important distinction between the value system of a company company in the value system that is implemented by the engineering teams within that company yeah in many cases i think core company values are they're they're really helpful for keeping the company you know unified and cohesive but sometimes it's really unclear how that actually translates to the daytoday operations or practices or behaviors on the engineering team and any engineer can probably say this if they worked at a larger company sometimes those core company values really manifest themselves differently for you know the sale team verses the engineering team so he values really gets that the values for the engineering teen specifically yeah it just helps them kind of look for teams based on those values so the those the values of the individual teams those do tend to be down stream values from the company values i but from from my point of view would you agree with that yes i would say i mean actually i wouldn't say that's all.
