Uber has one of the strongest engineering teams in the industry. Aakriti Singla and Simon Wu put together this story on how they are building the next generation payments platform to support their growth.
They went through a journey of extensive architecture design, implementation and well-thought through rollouts and active monitoring.
P.S This might be one of the best stories on architecture I came across lately.
A few years ago, Liang Guo while at Airbnb started series on Scaling Service Development. Last week they released Part 4 on building Schema Based Testing Infrastructure for Service Development.
The first 3 stories from the series cover the process they went through introducing Services Oriented Architecture at Airbnb. If you are interested, they are available on the following links: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3rd.
I’m quite surprised engineering leaders still count clicks and keystrokes in their teams.
This BBC article is a bit controversial, but it covers both sides of the story.
In my opinion, if companies need to take snapshots to make sure their teams are productive in 2020 - they are doing something wrong. An interesting discussion on the topic is going on on Reddit as well.
