The last 15 years have seen the emergence of cloud-based developer APIs and services as dominant components of the developer toolchain. As a result, there has never been more power at developers' fingertips. But making that power usable and accessible is a challenge that is shared between the providers and the consumers of these services. The post Developer Relations at Google with Luke Mahe appeared first on Software Engineering Daily.
How do you build and maintain a complex suite of Python packages? Of course, you want to put them on PyPI. The best format there is as a wheel. This means that when developers use your code, it comes straight down and requires no local tooling to install and use. But if you have compiled dependencies, such as C or FORTRAN, then you have a big challenge. How do you automatically compile and test against Linux, macOS (Intel and Apple Silicon), Windows, and so on? That's the problem cibuildwheel is solving. On this episode, you'll meet Henry Schreiner. He is developing tools for the next era of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and is an admin of Scikit-HEP. Of course, cibuildwheel is central to this process.

Technology is taking big steps in the housing industry with 3D printed homes. Developers are pushing them as “cheaper, stronger, and more efficient” than traditional homes, and the idea is gaining ground. With affordable housing in short supply, energy efficiency becoming a mandate, and the threat of more severe weather-events, 3D printed homes could provide a desirable eco-friendly option.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.A husband and wife team are building a 3D printed home in Tallahassee, Florida, that they expect to put on the market next month. It will be a 3-bedroom, 2-bath 1,440 square foot home with an asking price between $175,000 and $225,000. One of the big benefits for this kind of home in a state like Florida is the strength of the building material. Promoters say they will withstand hurricanes and flooding much better than traditional homes. And, they say these homes will also be more resistant to mold, which is a problem in areas with high humidity. Plus, they can be energy efficient, and built more quickly at a less expensive price point.3D Printer Looks Like a Car WashThe process involves a printer that looks more like a car wash but squirts out a cement-like mixture in a back-and-forth motion that's dictated by high-tech computer programs. They come in all sizes depending on the size of the building you want to create. According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the printers can range in size from about 10 x 10 feet to 100 x 100 feet and cost between a half million and $700,000. (1)The owners of the company printing the home in Tallahassee, Kyndra and James Light, told the Sun Sentinel: “Make no mistake, these houses are not your average test models.” They claim: “The finished product is far superior in strength, durability, and efficiency.”A 3D-printed home in Riverhead, New York was the first one on the U.S. market. It was listed during the summer for about $300,000. Four other 3D-printed homes in Austin, Texas, were also reportedly ready for occupants over the summer. And a community of 15 eco-friendly 3D-printed homes was supposed to break ground last month in Rancho Mirage, California, near Palm Springs, but developers are working through some regulatory delays.World's First Net Zero 3D Printed Home CommunityDevelopment company, Palari, and construction technology company, Mighty Buildings, are working together on the Rancho Mirage project. Palari claims to be “reimagining” real estate with “innovative and sustainable building strategies.” (2) MIghty Buildings says it will revolutionize home construction with 3D-printing technology. (3) They announced their plan for Rancho Mirage last spring, saying they had secured a 5-acre site and would break ground in September on the world's first 3D printed net zero energy community. (4)According to the Desert Sun, Mighty Buildings had previously built smaller accessory dwelling units with state approval. Co-Founder, Sam Ruben, told the Sun that homes for the Rancho Mirage plan would be larger, with upgraded material that is not yet approved by state officials. He says: “The units we are going to be delivering for Rancho Mirage are utilizing our next-generation material which incorporates fiber reinforcement that adds strength and performance.” Ruben says he isn't anticipating a problem with the approval, and the Palari website says that the Rancho Mirage homes will be ready for delivery in spring of next year.In addition to 1,450 square feet of living space, each home will sit on a 10,000 square foot lot. They will each have a swimming pool, and customizable options such as cabanas, hot tubs, fire pits, and outdoor showers. They will also have solar power for a net-zero carbon footprint, and a mid-century modern design.Other Communities Planned for CaliforniaPalari and Mighty Buildings already have several other projects in the works. The Palari website lists two more for the Palm Springs area including one community in Palm Springs and another in the nearby Desert Hot Springs. Their California project list also includes developments in the San Fernando Valley, the Central Coast, the East Bay, and Napa.You can find out more about those two companies and their plans by following links in the show notes at newsforinvestors.com. The websites for Palari and Mighty Homes provide information on the printing of single-family homes and ADUs.

Developers created about 20,000 new apartment units this year in buildings that used to serve some other purpose. It’s a process called adaptive reuse, and it’s been a big deal in 2021. We take a peek into all the conversion. The upcoming increase in Social Security payments is the biggest it’s been in decades, but what could it mean for seniors? We also examine some of the dynamics behind all that turnover in the restaurant and hospitality industries.

What's technology for? Tech products can make our lives better and make businesses a lot of money. But, without a focus on the user and on the business, technology is an academic project at best, or just an expensive hobby. In this episode, you'll hear from Elisabeth Bohlmann, VP of strategy at December Labs, a product and development studio that works with corporates like Google, and start-ups to validate ideas and build products. Learning notes from this episode: If you don't have a technical background, learning from other people who are succeeding in tech but aren't techies, is often the best way to learn. They can anticipate your questions and mistakes much better than someone who has been coding since they were 8. Before hiring developers, always validate your ideas and create a prototype with designers. Design thinking is central to tech. Whether you're working in a start-up or a corporate, think about business needs first and then find out how technology can meet them. Say hi to Elisabeth Bohlmann here.

Special guest: Muhammad Raza Brian #1: yaml, GH Actions, and Python 3.10 Anthony Shaw (and others) Old: python: [3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10-dev] New: python: ["3.7", "3.8", "3.9", "3.10"] Reasons: Github Actions use yaml. yaml treats 3.10-dev as a string, since it's got non-numbers in it. yaml treats 3.10 as a number, and is the same as 3.1 hence, we have to use quotes for “3.10” using them on “3.7”, etc is not necessary, but is a nice consistency Michael #2: Beating C and Java, Python Becomes the #1 Most Popular Programming Language, Says TIOBE via Brain Skin "For the first time in more than 20 years we have a new leader of the pack..." the TIOBE Index announced this month. "The long-standing hegemony of Java and C is over.” For Tiobe, its enterprise focus, has seen Java and C dominate in recent years, but Python has been snapping at the heels of Java, and has now overtaken it... "Its ease of learning, its huge amount of libraries, and its widespread use in all kinds of domains, has made it the most popular programming language of today. Congratulations Guido van Rossum!"

Certain types of technology are easier to understand for some people than for others, and that's okay. Passion is contagious; iIt attracts employees and customers. Strong, passionate leadership with clear vision increases employee satisfaction that then translates to satisfied customers. Developers who make products that build and maintain infrastructure toil to solve problems so their customers can pursue their own desires. Idit Levine, the Founder and CEO of Solo.io, shares her zeal for her company's work as well as a belief in her team's competitive nature.Main TakeawaysThe Power of Passion: Passion is often underrated. It is the engine of creativity and accomplishment. Lean into passion in order to educate others, gather phenomenal employees, and attract customers. Creation from Competition: Competition can be something that people shy away from. Perhaps this is because they wrongly equate it to being domineering. True competition is about striving to be the best version of oneself and creating an environment for one's entire team to do the same. Embrace competition to win.Knowing the Why of Founding: Founding a company is a huge endeavor. Knowing the reason to be a founder is essential. For Idit Levine, founding was about building on the successful things she had learned from previous stops but also learning from experiences she found wanting and believing she could do even better. Supporting the Team: A CEO should be obsessed with their employees. Leaders must make sure their employees are content and empowered to be their best. Happy employees lead to satisfied customers. Listening to the Market but Pushing Too: Listen to the market, but don't just listen to the market. Customers don't always know what they need or the direction of where a technology must head. It's the job of a CEO to lead and determine the company's course and the products they must build.IT Visionaries is brought to you by the Salesforce Platform - the #1 cloud platform for digital transformation of every experience.

In this week's show, Phil talks to Neil Day, who has more than 30 years of experience in the industry having started his career as a coder with Apple. He went on to manage online systems for Walmart and Sears before creating the successful start-up MediaMaster. He is now the Chief Technical Officer for R-Zero. Neil talks about why the search for new initiatives may not always like in your immediate vicinity. He also discusses the value that can be found in building a great team. KEY TAKEAWAYS: TOP CAREER TIP Don't always look for problems to solve within the world of IT only. Broaden your search and the solutions you will find may surprise you. WORST CAREER MOMENT While working for Walmart, Neil's team had been rushed to finish a web solution, but when the product was released, it was found to be lacking in many areas. Subsequently, Neil and the team were hurried back into action to enact a fix, which proved very challenging. CAREER HIGHLIGHT Neil is extraordinarily proud of the achievements he attained with several large companies, including Walmart's ecommerce site, a reimagined storage solution, and many more. THE FUTURE OF CAREERS IN I.T Although technology is all-pervasive in today's society, there are still so many things yet to be explored. There are always countless possibilities. THE REVEAL What first attracted you to a career in I.T.? – Neil began by working on Radio Shack kits with his father before moving on to programming. What's the best career advice you received? – Be solutions focused and results oriented. What's the worst career advice you received? – What would you do if you started your career now? – Neil thinks that joining a large team and understanding the importance of working to scale is vital at a career's outset. What are your current career objectives? – Building great solutions to interesting problems with people whose company he enjoys. What's your number one non-technical skill? – Research and the organization of information. How do you keep your own career energized? – Trying different things and working with interesting new people.

Have you heard of Kedro? It's a Python framework for creating reproducible, maintainable and modular data science code. We all know that reproducibility and related topics are important ones in the data science space. The freedom to pop open a notebook and just start exploring is much of the magic. Yet, that free-form style can lead to difficulties in versioning, reproducibility, collaboration, and moving to production. Solving these problems is the goal of Kedro. And we have 3 great guests from the Kedro community here to give us the rundown: Yetunde Dada, Waylon Walker, and Ivan Danov.

This week, Dan Neumann is joined by Chris Pipito, Agile Coach, to talk about Scrum cling-ons and culture shift. In this episode, Dan and Chris are talking about the aspects that cling to the Scrum framework and really impede organizations' ability to shift cultures from where they were to a point where there are more Agile stands using the Scrum structure. Dan and Chris dive deep into the roles of Scrum, the struggles faced when trying to achieve a culture shift, the real purpose of sprint reviews, and how to narrow stories (instead of splitting them) among other valuable inputs on the matter. Key Takeaways ● The three roles of Scrum: The Scrum Master, Developers, and the Product Owner. ○ Product and Portfolio managers do not exist in Scrum. ○ For anyone who does not fit into these three roles, there is a need to find a place in the organization where the employee's skills can be applied and are valued. ● What is really a culture shift? ○ The team sizing is an important matter as well as not having the team departmentalized bureaucracy. ○ The necessary organization needs to be in place for different departments to work together. ○ In most organizations, people don't even read the Scrum Guide and they work with people who don't have the proper certifications either, then, as a result, the entire experience with Scrum and Agile is not that satisfactory. ● The cling-ons make it easier not to change behaviors. ○ Is the team clear about the reasons why they are building something? What is the goal that the team is looking to achieve? Standardized forms sometimes do not contribute to the overall goal of a project. ○ Are you talking directly with your customer? ○ What is really the point of the Sprint Review? To inspect the increment and respond to the new information. ○ Teams who work on properly-sized stories check on the customer to make sure they are on the right path; this is much better than assuming they are right. ○ Narrowing stories is different than splitting them; you need to keep the overall objective you are trying to achieve as well as all the different things that you will be able to do, then narrowing that to a “happy path” to build it, without missing the core functionality of what you are trying to reach. ● What are the challenges to be confronted in order to make a shift towards Agility in an organization? ○ Regarding departments, the teams' sizes need to be appropriate. ○ Make sure you look for the skill sets that are needed in each team before just assigning one. ○ Assess the resource allocation fallacy: It's not about “getting the maximum utilization out of the fungible resources” ○ Tip to try in bigger organizations: One group could be separated and treated as if it is an entire organization and show them the results of what is coming up. Sometimes this might mean keeping “management” out.

CFTROU 0141: Be a People Developer No matter what kind of organization you're part of, if you are a Christian, you are called into the business of people development. At least, that is what our very own Jimmy Scroggins believes! Welcome back to our series of conversations about culture and how we define it, using the seven Family Church Leadership Principles as our framework. In today's episode, Jimmy and Leslee Bennett are joined by Pastor Joel McDonald and Pastor Jimmy Muir to discuss another one of those principles: be a people developer. We touch on the strong biblical foundations of people development and why it is vital for helping us flourish as Christ-followers, and we share some guidelines for recruiting and attracting the best talent, providing opportunities for training and development, and challenging people to go further than they imagined they could, plus so much more! We hope you'll join us for this practical and powerful discussion on people development! Key Points: Pastor Jimmy Muir defines ‘be a people developer': develop and invest in your team so they can flourish today and be ready for tomorrow. Jimmy Scroggins on people development as discipleship, no matter your organization. How people development aligns with God's will and supercharges the growth of His Kingdom. Allowing people to thrive in their given role; how to assign roles according to the person. The importance of providing opportunities for training and development. What Pastor Joel has learned about the value of communication and staff feedback. Tools for self-development: read books, go places, meet people, and take people with you. Leslee on how she helps people articulate their goals and develop a path to move forward. Jimmy Scroggins on the importance of launching people, not losing people as they grow. Final thoughts on people development: start with one person, make people feel seen, and press into those who are pressing into you. We talk about helping people articulate their goals and dreams and then developing a path for them to move forward.Click To TweetBeing a people developer is vital to helping us flourish as a church family and it is, honestly, vital to following the commands of Jesus Christ. God intended us to sharpen one another, to push one another, to grow together.Click To Tweet Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: Jimmy on Twitter Leslee on Twitter Joel McDonald on Facebook Jimmy Muir Email Family Church Network Family Church on Facebook Family Church on Instagram Get podcast updates delivered to your inbox.

Have you heard of the package Rich? This library allows you to create very, well, rich terminal-based UIs in Python. When you think of what you can typically build with basic print statements, that may seem quite limited. But with Rich, imagine justified tables, progress bars, rendering of markdown, and way more. This is one of the fastest growing projects in the Python space these days. And the creator, Will McGugan is here to give is the whole history and even a peak at the future of Rich and a follow on library called Textual.

In this week's show, Phil talks to Jessica Chan, a self-taught web developer who provides practical tips and tutorials for beginners in web development which she shares through blog posts and her YouTube channel, ‘Coder Coder'. Jessica talks about why communication skills are so important in an IT career. She also discusses the importance of patience when it comes to setting life goals. KEY TAKEAWAYS: TOP CAREER TIP Communication skills are equally as important as the technical skills we need, in order to have a successful IT career. WORST CAREER MOMENT While working on a website redesign, Jessica mistakenly deleted a huge amount of work and was unable to retrieve it. While it was touch and go for a while, Jessica learned to keep backups! CAREER HIGHLIGHT Being able to quit her full time job as a developer and focus on content creation, teaching others how to engage with coding and fulfilling her ambitions to become more independent. THE FUTURE OF CAREERS IN I.T The growth of developer advocate roles, in which developers are asked to create content, is fascinating and is pushing the industry forward. THE REVEAL What first attracted you to a career in I.T.? – Jessica taught herself coding and programming and developed a love for computers from an early age. What's the best career advice you received? – Always keep your audience in mind.
