#discussThe Biggest Mistakes in App User Onboarding

  • Experiencing on my own, I can note the importance of user onboarding strategy for the app, which experience should be user-focused first.
  • Focusing onboarding efforts on showcasing product features fail to demonstrate how the product will solve the user's problem.
  • While the connection between how the features will solve a problem may be clear to the company, it's not always so apparent for the user.
  • Just because the user has begun using the product or service doesn’t mean they know everything about it.
  • Providing too many details at one time won’t help users to memorize everything about all the app features.
  • It is better if you provide details step by step to walk your user through the familiarization process.
  • What is a bad app user onboarding experience for You?
  • Do You know the examples of good and bad user onboarding experience?

Debugging hidden memory leaks in Ruby

  • Even though our RSS is 118MB, our Ruby object space is only aware of 3MB, introspection wise we have very little visibility of this very large memory leak.
  • Mwrap is a memory profiler for Ruby that keeps track of all allocations by intercepting malloc and family calls.
  • Provided you can afford for a process to run at half speed simply re-launching it in production with Mwrap and logging Mwrap output once in a while to a file can identify a broad spectrum of memory leaks.
  • Additionally, I needed a small hack on the shell file to allow root to profile a non root process (we run our Discourse application under a restricted account in the container).
  • Mwrap, heaptrack and chap provide us with very powerful tools for attacking memory related issues both in development and production.

How to Setup an Awesome Python Environment for Data Science or Anything Else

  • However, especially we as Data Scientists tend to often produce big and messy Jupyter notebooks or python files that are hard to follow.
  • Apart from that, we often run into version clashes when one project depends on a different version fo the same library.
  • Let’s get started with the most important thing when working with python: the interpreter.
  • Managing project dependencies in python can become messy or manual.
  • Now, as we have created our project, we will start working on it adding more and more code to it.
  • With black and mypy we can avoid formatting code manually or run into avoidable errors.
  • Pre-commit is a tool that executes checks before you commit code to your repository (I took for granted that your code is under git version control).

NuScale Small Reactor Has Non-Energy Applications

  • NuScale small modular reactor can be used for flexible power operations, hydrogen production, process heat and power for oil refineries, and water desalination.
  • Given the currently low cost of natural gas in the USA, he said, steam-methane reforming is the most common method there of producing hydrogen.
  • NuScale worked together with researchers at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to study the technical and economic feasibility of producing hydrogen using the HTSE process coupled to a six-module NuScale plant.
  • NuScale Power and Fluor Corporation conducted a preliminary technical and economic assessment to evaluate the feasibility of using NPMs to support oil recovery and refining processes, reducing the overall carbon footprint of these industrial complexes and preserving fossil resources as feedstock for higher value products.
  • By providing both process steam heat and electrical power, a 10-module NuScale plant would reduce CO2 emissions from the refinery by about 40% or roughly 200 Mt/hr.

THE HEALTHCARE PAYMENTS REPORT: The strategies payments leaders are using to take advantage of the $3.7 trillion opportunity in US healthcare

  • Better-informed and more critical customers, along with a push to combat the complex and opaque medical billing process, are creating demand for innovation in the healthcare payments space.
  • Despite a titanic market size and room for innovation, digital transformation is occurring incrementally at best.
  • In fact, 90% of healthcare providers still leverage paper and manual processes for collections, according to data from a report commissioned by InstaMed and compiled by Qualtrics.
  • And even when healthcare providers offer digital solutions like online portals to customers (which 60% do), they seem to be falling short: While the majority of consumers claim they want to make appointments (68%), fill out registration forms (68%), and pay healthcare bills (61%) online, the share of consumers who actually do so hovers around 30% for those use cases.
  • Discrepancies like these make healthcare payments a greenfield for lucrative digital innovation.

Pensando Systems raised $278 million in funding amidst a growing demand for edge-computing solutions

  • Pensando makes software and devices that aim to help private data centers replicate the edge-computing flexibility provided on cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  • Edge computing systems can make data transmission much more efficient: Instead of data going directly to the cloud or to a remote data center for processing, it goes through a local processing device, which reduces the amount of data that ultimately needs to be sent to and/or processed on a remote server.
  • Efforts to further advance edge computing capabilities — such as HPE's $4 billion allocation to sponsor research through 2022 — promise to unlock further efficiency, reducing the strain of data transfer across networks.
  • While edge computing will make data transfer more efficient, networks will still be strained due to the projected rise in data volume fueled by 5G networks: Data generated from smart cities, for instance, is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 31% between 2019 and 2024, more than quadrupling in that time frame.
