  5. Start der Premier League - “Geld wird nicht so negativ gesehen wie in Deutschland”

    Im Gegensatz zu Deutschland denke man im Vereinigten Königreich nicht zwangsläufig negativ über Geld im Fußball, sagte der Journalist Raphael Honigstein im DLF. Gleiches gelte für Investoren - sie könnten Clubs voranbringen oder im Negativfall zur Entfremdung von Fans und Vereinen beitragen. Auf Deutschland schaue man in einer Hinsicht neidisch.

  7. a16z Podcast: The Strategies and Tactics of Big

    What happens when companies grow exponentially in a short amount of time — to their organization, their product planning, their behavior towards change itself? In this "hallway conversation", a16z partners Steven Sinofsky and Benedict Evans discuss the business tactics and strategies behind four of the largest tech companies — Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon — and how they work from an org perspective. 

    From the outside, these giants can seem composed of disparate entities literally strewn around the globe; it can be hard (sometimes purposefully so) to understand or detect the strategy that knits them all together. But in fact each of these large companies have very specific approaches to organization and strategy, and what’s good for Google isn’t necessarily right for Amazon or Apple. Evans and Sinofsky discuss the rationale behind each company’s org, looking at the tactics and strategies that are best for the underlying platform, how each thinks of its varied product entities, and how their organizations are all designed differently around their core capabilities and products.

  10. TypeScript at Slack with Felix Rieseberg | Software Engineering Daily Play in new window | Download

    Slack is an application for team communication. Users chat across mobile devices, web browsers, and a desktop application, which means Slack has three places to deploy on rather than two. And the desktop apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux are not identical, so Slack has even more places to deploy.

    With so many different runtime environments, Slack needs to make technology choices that reduce the chance of errors. TypeScript allows for static typing of JavaScript. The extra compilation step checks the types of variables being passed between different places–so the errors will be discovered at compile time. In an untyped world, those errors might occur at runtime. TypeScript also unlocks the ability to put JavaScript code in an IDE, allowing for more efficient development.

    Felix Rieseberg is a desktop engineer at Slack, and in today’s episode he explains the unique challenges of building Slack, and why the team moved from JavaScript to TypeScript.
