As an example, they walk you through getting your profile more complete. Branchout , often called LinkedIn meets Facebook, has done a lot in their application to provide users motivation and opportunity to spread the word about the service. The purpose of Branchout is helping people to network their way to jobs. However, funny enough, I don't see the job search and showing you who you know at the company as being particularly well done.

Framework Benchmarks

TechEmpower

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the frameworks data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. For example, we used Sequelize for the JavaScript MySQL tests. For example, servlet-raw is using raw JDBC. Code examples. About What we do Portfolio People Blog Contact. You are viewing a single entry.

10 Simple Actions Will Inspire More Startup Results

Startup Professionals Musings

In my experience, there is no magic gene involved, just simple good habits executed consistently and convincingly until everyone around you in a startup wants to follow your example. This leading by example is easy to say, but not so easy to put into action. Most leadership gurus, including John Baldoni, have provided generic recipes, like his book from a while back, “ Lead By Example: 50 Ways Great Leaders Inspire Results.”

Framework Benchmarks Round 9

TechEmpower

For example, a larger number of response headers might mean slightly fewer responses sent per second. For example, we are using MySQL 5.5 For example, platforms that use process-level concurrency scaled to a large number of processor cores quite well. These checks are rigid--failing implementations for using the wrong letter case in their JSON encoding, for example--but ultimately a valuable tool to ensure fairness.

Everything about Java 8

TechEmpower

The List interface is an example. Here are a few examples of lambdas: Comma-separated list of inputs with specified types on the left, a block with a return on the right: (int x, int y) -> { return x + y; }. To give a couple of concrete, valid examples: Comparator c = (a, b) -> Integer.compare(a.length(), b.length()); A Comparator 's compare method takes two strings as input, and returns an int. The sum method in the example above is a terminal operation.

Frameworks Round 4

TechEmpower

For example, in some cases a framework is tested both with and without its ORM (“full ORM” versus “Raw”). We’ve posted Round 4 of our ongoing project measuring the performance of many web application frameworks and platforms. As with previous rounds, the developer community has contributed several additional frameworks for Round 4, bringing the total to 57!

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the framework''s data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. For example, we used Sequelize for the JavaScript MySQL tests. For example, servlet-raw is using raw JDBC. Code examples. You are viewing the first round of web application framework benchmarks.

Think about Performance Before Building a Web Application

TechEmpower

We don’t know just how often this occurs, but judging from the calls we get there are lots of anecdotal examples. These are applications that, for example, expect to see large data or complex algorithmic work from day one. Examples would be applications that match users based on non-trivial math, or make recommendations based on some amount of analysis of past and present behavior, or process large documents on the users’ behalf. “It was running fine.”

Framework Benchmarks Round 12

TechEmpower

For example, Slim's performance in the JSON test and Laravel's performance in the Fortunes test both approximately doubled versus Round 11 with PHP 5. Round 12 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is now available! A race against the clock. Recently, we were notified that the physical hardware environment we have used for Rounds 9 through 12 will be decommissioned imminently.

Frameworks Round 6

TechEmpower

For example, in the multiple query test, Revel currently considerably exceeds Go. July marks the fourth month of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms. We''ve just posted Round 6, which includes several more developer community-provided framework test implementations: Beego, Dart, Hapi, Jester, Luminus, Nancy, Yaf, Plack, Play-Slick, and Undertow.

Kohana, for example, refused to process requests that provided Cookies it was not expecting to receive, responding with "A valid cookie salt is required. We have posted Round 5 of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms. In this round, we''re very happy to announce that a community member has contributed tests for ASP.NET running on native Windows.

EnumSet and EnumMap

TechEmpower

I recommend this approach: Check whether the characteristics of the default spliterator are correct for your collection (often times the defaults are too conservative — for example, EnumSet 's spliterator is currently missing the ORDERED , SORTED , and NONNULL characteristics). The EnumSet.allOf(elementType) method is a great example. Take RegularEnumSet.equals(object) for example. This article discusses java.util.EnumSet. and java.util.EnumMap.

For example, a local provider could help government agencies implement and monitor switched ethernet or wavelength services to promote fast and secure data transmissions.

Mangling JSON numbers

TechEmpower

We happen to use JAX-RS in our example code. If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON. JavaScript has the equivalent of double (64-bit floating point) for its numbers, and double cannot represent the same set of numbers as long. If we are not careful, our long is mangled in transit. Consider 2 53 + 1. We can store that number in a long but not a double.

Framework Benchmarks Round 13

TechEmpower

For example, our new physical application server has twice as many HT cores as the previous environment, but the CPUs are older, so there is an interesting balance of higher concurrency but potentially lower throughput. For example: At any given time, we can grab the most recent results and mark them as a preview or final for an official Round. Round 13 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is here!

Framework Benchmarks Round 14

TechEmpower

The final capture of differences between Round 13 to Round 14 is an example. For example, if a contributor updates the Postgres JDBC driver for the full spectrum of JVM frameworks, the original contributors of those frameworks will be notified by mention-bot. Results from Round 14 of the Web Framework Benchmarks project are now available! This round's results are limited to the physical hardware environment only, but cloud results will be included again in the next round.

Three qualities of a great leader

Berkonomics

There are a million examples of great companies and their leaders focusing like a laser on core components of the business and succeeding where others failed because of the inefficient use of limited resources. There are lots of ways to measure a great leader.

Can you stretch the truth to make your point?

Berkonomics

An often-expressed example seems to come from the salesperson who quotes a larger number of users or customers than the facts support. In one example in an industry that I know well, there are direct customers and then central systems that in turn support direct customers.

Apple as a surprising example. There are numerous examples like that one. My stories of missing the context of the times.

Can you defend your pricing niche against your competition?

Berkonomics

For example, Internet resellers have a better chance to combine price and quality than those with much more fixed overhead occupying a bricks-and-mortar physical presence in the community. Here are a few examples to help you. For example, the tech company, Asus, found this golden opportunity in the notebook market and moved in quickly to overtake all other manufacturers with low prices. This week, we continue our series on marketing and positioning.

Don’t Let Misconfiguration Leave You Vulnerable to Attackers

Inverted Software

For example: some applications might need to use a port in the firewall that otherwise might be blocked. For example: a database server that requires an open port in order to execute queries from the web server and neglects to restrict access to the open port. Configuration is an essential part of every application. Misconfiguration can happen at any level of the application stack. From code, to web and application servers, databases and frameworks.

Faster is sometimes more valuable than better.

Berkonomics

Dell is a great example of emphasis upon fast, creating a customized computer in 48 hours or less, bringing in assemblies and components just-in-time to make the assembly line. And in this company example, both quality and speed are the critical factors in competitive advantage. More examples of fast above better. And d oing both well usually wins the day. This is one of those arguable insights, where both sides win.

Depending on their setup, businesses can make changes to their existing hardware to increase bandwidth, for example. Enterprises face several network-related challenges that can affect their competitiveness and ability to grow and serve customers.

Haste makes waste; but to lag is to sag.

Berkonomics

A marginal example was the Intel release of the Pentium Pro and new Pentium II processor to rave reviews – until a math professor found an obscure error in the chip’s code that made a rare floating-point calculation error. The waste from haste in this example was in not pre-thinking of enough testing scenarios for a new product. Close. Let’s examine the relationship between time, quality and competitiveness.

Remember the FAIRNESS doctrine

Berkonomics

Some examples of “unfair treatment”. Closing a highly effective department, shutting down a marginal company, canceling a promising project all are good examples of management setting up a visceral response of “unfair” among those affected.

When to pivot from your original plan?

Berkonomics

My favorite example of a world class pivot comes from the CEO and board of one of my most successful investments. Plans do not often work as devised. . We are not always smart about the market or the product. We may miss the context of the times and come to market too soon or too late.

The Digital Banking Wars Will Not Be Won With Technology
