This week, we're enjoying reading @yonatanzunger's, "W, X, and Z: The Layers of a System." Organizing engineering systems can be a nebulous task, but this framework breaks it down and informs how we think about systems design at Twitter. medium.com/@yonatanzunger…
While migrating an on-premises data warehousing infrastructure to #BigQuery, the @TwitterEng and Google Cloud teams created an architecture that provides one-to-one mapping of the Hadoop Distributed File System to BigQuery. Learn how the teams did it ↓ cloud.google.com/blog/products/…

Is it possible to love systemd too much?
Conducted in 2021, the study on which the paper is based found that prompted users were 20% less likely to compose five or more Tweets receiving prompts in the future. Head on over to the blog to check out the full findings!
In the heat of the moment, we've all said things we've wanted to take back. In our latest blog post, based on our #ICWSM22 paper, we examine how real-time prompts can reduce these types of replies, both in the moment and in the longer term. blog.twitter.com/engineering/en…
A year back, I joined Twitter after a decade in startup land. I thought this switch would be easy, but it turned out to be challenging and educative. In this article, I chronicle my observations as 8 career tips for those considering similar switches. leaddev.com/career-paths-p…
