10 Examples of Companies With Fantastic Cultures

Tech Coast Venture Network

For example, Adobe doesn’t use ratings to establish employee capabilities, feeling that that inhibits creativity and harms how teams work. Even the best examples of culture on this list have detractors. Having great company culture is no longer just an option. Today’s workers consider it as much as they consider salary and benefits. In fact, fantastic company culture is almost expected along with other traditional benefits.

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. Code examples.

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.

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 intranet or special-purpose B2B applications.

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.

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.

Frameworks Round 5

TechEmpower

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.

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. 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.

Efficient multiple-stream concatenation in Java

TechEmpower

For example, it interacts poorly with infinite streams. I want to combine the elements of multiple Stream instances into a single Stream. What's the best way to do this? This article compares a few different solutions. Stream.concat(a, b). The JDK provides Stream.concat(a, b) for concatenating two streams. void exampleConcatTwo () {. Stream a = Stream. of ( "one" , "two" ); Stream b = Stream. of ( "three" , "four" ); Stream out = Stream. concat ( a , b ); out. forEach ( System.

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.

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.

Storage worries

TechEmpower

For example, although the risk of being abandoned by a popular NoSQL platform are low, there is virtually no risk of MySQL, Postgres, or Microsoft SQL Server being outright abandoned in the next decade. In the 1980s, high-tech companies stored information about their customers on their sophisticated and high-cost computer equipment. Back then such practices were exceptional except at relatively large companies.
