Marta, our VP of Engineering, has posted our new @khanacademy Engineering Principles for all to see! https://t.co/XQkpdnDmMC It's been awesome getting to work on this and the new org-wide values this past year. I love being in an org that supports growth, quality, and inclusion!
It always amuses me when set designers pick specific prints for a set. Why that print? Are they trying to imply something about Picard's tastes? Why did they print it out and blow it up so large? Did they pick it because the Met offers Public Domain licensing?
Found the print that's hanging on Picard's walls in the trailer for the upcoming series. In fact I think I found the exact impression used at the Met Museum: https://t.co/bSWBipgFDg It depicts foreigners in Japan - I wonder if this might imply something about the series plot? https://t.co/gCckceNmTS
Today is my 8th anniversary at @khanacademy! It’s been amazing to see the growth of the organization and the team over the years. Very excited to be a part of helping so many students around the world!
The day has finally arrived - Googlebot is now evergreen!!! https://t.co/pByE8WWjYT Time to drop so many polyfills, this is really exciting!
This is so cool - Yasuke is one of the more famous cases from Japanese history and there are tantalizing gaps in the history that would be fun to fill in. I hope it's done respectfully... https://t.co/j1VQHZV4e2
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.
