This is the twenty-ninth edition of CrunchX and here are the stories and resources we thought were worth spending the time.

1. On Workplace Productivity

Nicole writes about workplace productivity and what are the metrics needed to measure it. This can be useful for developers that want to improve productivity, and what actually matters. A great read for anyone who wants to be productive. Written by Nicole Forsgren on Future and editorial selection by Milos Zivkovic. Read the article here:

2. Testing Distributed Systems

Any project under the sun needs to improve testing. This is by far the most extensive list of testing stories and helpful tips. Ranging from testing microservices to specific approaches. An excellent cheat sheet to use in future testing strategies. Written and published by Andrey Satarin and editorial selection by Milos Zivkovic. Read the article here:

3. How to choose a career in tech that benefits humanity

One of the most important things about working in software engineering, at least in my opinion, is that you work on something that makes a difference, something that makes you want to get up in the morning, and something that challenges you and your skills. It’s going to be dull being a run-of-the-mill generic ‘developer’ and this article from Fast Company illustrates one of the points well, choosing something to work on that benefits us all. Written by William Macaskill and Ben Todd on Fast Company and editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Read the article here:

4. RegExr, RegEx101, RegEx Tester

Regular expressions, or regexes, are a big part of my life and one of the first things I ever learned in computer science in my early UNIX days. Even now they’re probably the most common programming challenge I come across in pretty much every role I’ve chosen to work with since. These days it’s a little easier to test your knowledge than it used to be (having to compile and run programs, endlessly…) and sites like RegExr, RegEx101, and RegEx Tester are excellent resources that support a range of different regex implementations allowing you to test expressions in real-time. Very highly recommended. Editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley and view the tools here:

9. Google opens the door for Android apps that work across all kinds of devices

The SDK is supposed to let developers do three key things with their apps: discover nearby devices, establish secure connections between devices, and host an app’s experience across multiple devices. According to Google, its cross-device SDK uses Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ultra-wideband to deliver multi-device connectivity. Written by Emma Roth on The Verge and editorial selection by Aniket.

10. Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg won’t be deposed over the Cambridge Analytica scandal

The lawsuit alleged that Facebook illegally shared user data with third parties, and said the company didn’t adequately protect that data from being abused by bad actors. Zuckerberg faced questions from Congress in 2018 that didn’t do much to clear up the scandal or explain exactly what happened with Cambridge Analytica, a firm hired by the Trump presidential campaign that was able to scrape data from millions of Facebook profiles. Written by Richard Lawler on The Verge and editorial selection by Aniket. Read the article here:
