I believe the oldest browser we currently support at @khanacademy is Chrome v41 (4 years old!) because it's the version of Chrome that Googlebot runs: https://t.co/rTfaLpKiEZ (Is it updating soon??)
I once saw Ricky Jay at the Antiquarian Book Fair here in NYC. He had a brown paper wrapped bundle under his arm that was incredibly tantalizing - I knew I was in the right place! His exhibition at the Met a few years ago confirmed his incredible taste. https://t.co/5951zQd2IO
I finished my blue color references! Ultramarine, Cobalt, Pthalo, and Indanthrene. That was a fun little project 🏻 https://t.co/CxzUj1pJgm
Starting to make reference sheets for pigment mixing (in this case Pthalo Blue). The cool thing is that it only takes one woodblock (with different registration marks). Can look at these later to mix/layer pigments for certain effects! https://t.co/0LEl7lQkBk
I guess this is the day I try to figure out how to use Gmail again after being on Inbox for so long... so many features I'm missing (especially the bundles w/ the delayed delivery). Sigh!
The position is remote friendly! This is for a frontend infrastructure team and we’re all remote. Also folks with JS type (Flow/Typescript) or JS performance experience also welcome!
I’m looking to hire someone with design system and/or JS build system (webpack) experience at @khanacademy! Apply for the senior frontend engineer position here: https://t.co/hcwXbWyUWg and mention me in your application! DMs are open. (a11y and i18n experience a huge plus!)
Intriguing Google Map that let's you explore old Japanese prints depicting Japan (Tokyo and beyond): https://t.co/YGNmuscobC https://t.co/jR1DTWYq6f
Joshua Tree (1930) by Frances Gearhart (and other prints by her). She excelled at depicting the grandeur and beauty of California landscape. We must do all that we can to protect it so that future generations can enjoy it! https://t.co/3RXZUb44J2 https://t.co/LndQ3qmdIx
Lots of great feedback, thank you!! I think the most unobtrusive is: if a user tries to navigate after N days of no reload, load from the server instead of client. Barring that, showing a banner after N days telling them to reload. Both of which are quite doable!
For folks that've developed Single Page Apps - how do you deal with users leaving pages open for a *really* long time? Reload every N days? Reload after a deploy? We frequently have users attempt actions many weeks after a feature was removed!
Had a great time chatting with @christoomey, on the @_bikeshed podcast, all about the changing shape of frontend technology, knowing when to adopt new tech, and frontend development at @khanacademy! https://t.co/YDnrE48P5P
Apparently @Mailchimp will completely delete your account and mailing lists without warning if you haven’t used them in a while. Not even an email notice! Completely baffled at how bad their customer service is! Instantly losing a huge fan.
I was on the JS Party podcast earlier this month with @jerodsanto and @noopkat to talk about why I like GraphQL: https://t.co/xv2SZCMLig Also talked about the GraphQL Guide I'm writing with @lorendsr! https://t.co/aNXIHmxJOQ
RT @mayli: Finally! I kicked off our Khan Academy Design blog with a post: Why design at Khan Academy? (I am terrified of writing on the internet but I love this team too much to not write about them!)
Check it out: https://t.co/c8goeesv3W
P.S. We are hiring! Help spread the word.
RT @landscapesounds: Announcing LANDSCAPE MUSIC: RIVERS & TRAILS, a nationwide series of concerts in Fall 2018 featuring #LandscapeMusic World Premieres commemorating the 50th Anniversaries of the National Trails System Act and the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act! https://t.co/fMB07KMdHL #Trails50 #WSR50 https://t.co/qu3KczNgj1
A belated follow-up to this tweet - the book is happening! It's going to be quite a bit bigger and cover lots of topics (including Apollo + React, GraphQL + Node.js, and mobile). I'm writing it with @lorendsr! Beta is available now: https://t.co/S1YfL72vfz
I'm excited to announce the beta release of The GraphQL Guide, a new book about GraphQL I'm co-authoring with @lorendsr! https://t.co/S1YfL72vfz
Final version of my print is done! Based on a William Rice design I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Even, rich, colors - and not many mistakes! Can’t wait to tackle my next print. https://t.co/0zMhhDQXLb
Starting work on v2 of this print (inspired by a William Rice design). I'm starting to get clean enough pulls that you can actually see the woodgrain in the pigment!! (this is super hard) Still a long way from it but you see this in high-quality classic Edo-period prints. Yess! https://t.co/eZyGWEwV0g
