Learning From the Giants — Top Engineering Blogs you Must Follow

  • One thing that’s helping me broaden my perspective is reading the stories and choices of the architecture of the biggest tech companies in the world, and understand how they tackle the most complex challenges, at scale.
  • Their team posts articles several times a month on topics such as AI & Recommendation, handling social interactions at scale, and open-sourcing their systems.
  • Their engineering blog writes about from database design to ML-based Recommendation of topics and infrastructure scaling.
  • You should check out their blog, it’s really pleasing to read stories that are “less tech-focused”, on various services they developed, or on people working at the company.
  • The company is open-sourcing a lot of its technologies, and their engineering blog focuses on ML & AI at scale, handling big volumes of data and recent company events.

To Post or Not to Post

  • Have you ever started writing something, gotten about 2/3rds of the way through, and decided that the thing that you’re writing isn’t worth saying at all?
  • That’s how I’ve spent most of my life on the internet, and to be honest, I’m tired of it.
  • There’s a lot of people on the internet like me, often called lurkers.
  • I’ve published something like 20 articles in the last 3 years, many of them I’m really proud of!
  • When you’re just starting out, your work will disappoint you, since your skills lag behind your taste.
  • But when I notice the gap between my taste and my skills, that’s not a reason to give up.
  • There’s a whole lot of people out there, someone is going to get some value out of what I have to say.
  • Let me know, I’d really love to connect with more people who struggle with this.
