Goldman Sachs did a massive survey of its Gen Z interns and found they like pot, but ignore influencers

When two big streamers ditched Twitch, Fortnite suffered too

  • (On the last day he streamed on Twitch, he was live for nearly 7 hours, averaged 48,074 concurrent viewers, and gained 2,035 followers an hour.) Tenney, who has around 7 million followers, reaches similar numbers of people.
  • It’s why big Fornite streamers like Timothy “TimtheTatman” Betar and Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo — who have 4 million and 3.5 million followers, respectively — can switch over to a game like World of Warcraft: Classic and not totally lose the huge audiences who like to watch them in the first place.
  • Even if a bunch of streamers decided to quit playing Fortnite, either out of boredom or a sense of protest — Blevins joked about it on stream last month, in fact — it would remain the most popular game in the world.

I rented West Elm home decor through my Rent the Runway subscription — here's how it worked and what it looked like

  • Earlier this year, Rent the Runway announced a solution through a partnership with West Elm: home textile rentals.
  • Applying the same concept that drives the success of its designer clothing rental program, the introduction of this new product category lets shoppers rent home decor at a fraction of its retail price.
  • This month, I rented three pieces of clothing and then added the Blue Velvet Living Room Bundle as my fourth rental.
  • The advantage of renting these West Elm pieces is not only that I could refresh my current space, I could also figure out my still-developing personal style and determine through trial and error what types of home decor best fit my personality and preferences.
  • Trying new pillows, throws, and sheets is a low-risk way to refresh your living room and bedroom.

Hundreds of Amazon employees plan to walk out of work in protest of Amazon’s environmental policies

  • Organizers want to see the company reduce its carbon footprint, cancel contracts with fossil fuel companies, and stop lobbying for politicians who deny climate change.
  • The organizing by Amazon’s corporate employees marks the first time tech workers at the e-commerce giant have planned a mass protest, in a significant escalation of worker activism at the company.
  • Now, it seems to be Amazon’s turn to face public criticism from its employees, who are demanding the company reduce its carbon footprint and stop supporting politicians who deny the existence of climate change.
  • Employees organizing with the group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice began circulating an email last week to colleagues, encouraging them to join the walkout, which is planned for September 20, and asking them to sign a form pledging their support.
  • As of September, over 8,000 employees signed a public petition supporting the proposal and asking the company for bold climate change leadership.

Human Readable JavaScript

  • Our job, is to focus on what is readable for humans and let the machines interpret our code.
  • There is another post in here somewhere about functional JavaScript, but let's assume we're talking about map.
  • So let's take a look at all the different ways we could write that same logic.
  • The first optional addition we can make is to add parentheses to the parameter definition of the internal function.
  • This makes that piece of code start to look more like a typical function definition.
  • These are the things we need to ask ourselves as we develop code for our teammates and future selves to maintain and read.
  • As we know and have seen, map takes a function as an argument and passes each element in our array into it.
  • map knows to pass the element it gets to the function and use the result.

LinkedIn launches Skill Assessments for coding, design software, and business tools

  • On the recruitment side, hiring managers can quickly spot candidates in search results who’ve passed a Skill Assessment and who’ve chosen to make the results public.

  • The launch of Skill Assessments comes after LinkedIn, the world’s largest job marketplace with over 20 million listings, announced it will introduce changes aimed at making it easier for job seekers to stand out from the crowd.
  • This summer saw the general availability of Instant Job Notifications, which lets LinkedIn members create search alerts for listings that meet a set of criteria and which takes into account posts they’ve engaged with, along with their career path and their skills and work experience.

Avoiding the messy git history

  • However, a lot of developers use git just as a means to store the source files somewhere remotely, without actually utilising some of its more advanced features that allow us to have a great, easily readable git history.
  • Considering that no code can be directly pushed to develop or master branches, it’s required that you create a new feature branch to add a new functionality to your app.
  • This will start the rebase process where changes from develop are integrated to your own feature branch, commit by commit.
  • It doesn’t create unnecessary merge commits if you integrate changes to your feature branches often.
  • Unlike the developer rebase, which is used for resolving potential conflicts and testing your feature with the latest changes, this one is primarily for readability reasons, although it can also catch issues if they do happen.
