Open Sourcing Node.js projects

Since I joined Go Daddy a few months ago, I am focused on understanding the business and the current tech stack.

I am in charge of the Site Builders and the E-commerce Products and one of the technologies that we extensively use is JavaScript on the Site Builder interface. Given our team expertise on JavaScript it made sense for us to start experimenting with JS related technologies and extend its usage on our products, going beyond just the UI and deeper on our stack. 

Recently we made some good progress with Node.js and we are starting to invest more on it, as a result we just open sourced 2 projects built on top of Node.js: our node Cluster Service and our High Availability Redis Client.

Both projects are now on GitHub.com:

If feels really good to contribute back to the community and share some of our work. I got to say it has been super easy to open source projects at Go Daddy, zero bureaucracy :-)

Marissa's Tumblr: Geeking Out on the Logo

marissamayr:

So, tonight we unveiled the new Yahoo logo, concluding our 30 days of change.

We hadn’t updated our logo in 18 years. Our brand, as represented by the logo, has been valued at as much as ~$10 billion dollars. So, while it was time for a change, it’s not something we could do lightly.

By Joe Covalesky, Principal Engineer, Yahoo! Mail

Making Yahoo! Mail easier to use, and more fun, is our priority. Today we’re making it super simple to share individual photos or sets right from Flickr.

Since you’re sending and receiving hundreds of millions of photos in Yahoo! Mail…

Great work, awesome team :-)

Integrating Yahoo Mail with Dropbox
Today we are rolling out the integration between Yahoo Mail and Dropbox,   by the end of the day Yahoo Mail users will be able to link their accounts with Dropbox.
We’ve implemented four major use cases:
Seamless Single Sign On
Save attachments directly to Dropbox (no Local Storage needed)
Share files from your Dropbox account
Attach files larger than 25MB.
This was one of my last projects at Yahoo, we have been working with the Dropbox team for about 2 months and it was really great to build this feature with them. It puts Yahoo Mail inline with the market trend of cloud related integrations, Gmail has Google Drive and Hotmail Outlook.com has SkyDrive.
We built this feature on top of the new Yahoo Mail modular JavaScript architecture that allows the team to do global pushes to production in less than 5 minutes (I will write a post about it soon). So if we find an issue, it is faster for us to fix the bug and push than to roll back. This is a pretty bold achievement specially if you consider that Yahoo Mail has more than 300 million users worldwide and that our application runs on thousands of servers in more than 20 Datacenters.  This is a good step towards the vision to enable Continuous Deployment for Yahoo Mail.
Check out the official blog posts on Dropbox Blog and on Yahoo Mail Blog.

Sublime Text Plugin: GitGutter

Git is amazing, there is the world before and after Git, at Yahoo we use Subversion and we also have GitHub Enterprise as an option for your Version Control System. 

I gotta say that it is great to be able to use an Internal GitHub, it makes a lot of things easier. If you use Sublime Text as your main Editor, there is a ton of Git Plugins available and one that I recently started to use is called gitGutter (there are versions for Vim and Emacs too). 

https://github.com/jisaacks/GitGutter

What this little plugin does is very simple and yet clever, when you are working in a File, it tracks your changes in realtime with little icons on the left column. This is an easy way to see what you are effectively changing on that file.

It is really worth the try.

PS: to see the nice color coding you will need to edit you Theme file to add the color pattern to it.

An Objective-C Literal Subtlety

Some interesting issues when using the new syntax for Objective-C literals, specially the use of variables, like this: @(varname),  and Booleans YES/NO.
