Where it started
It’s 2 a.m. on a Friday. You have been sitting in a windowless computer lab in the basement of the CS department for almost the entire day. You and your three project partners are not out that night because every single one of you really loves writing low-level C code to optimize that matrix multiplication assignment due next week. You argue about implementation, make design decisions together, pass the keyboard back-and-forth – everyone’s eyes glued to one screen. You’re completely in the zone. You’re in sync. You have flow.
Achieving that flow is one of the hardest problems in the workplace. There are countless theories as to what is the best way to get there. But what if you just tried to do exactly what you did in college? That’s what we did at Tagged, and it worked.
At Tagged, we embrace open source as part of our engineering culture, always looking for ways to best support our own products while also sharing what we learn with the outside world.
Now, as we shift to a smartphone-oriented world, Tagged pivots its strategy to focus more on native mobile platforms. With this focus in mind, we are happy to introduce two of Tagged’s latest contributions to the open-source community: iOS-cat-scroller and iOS-voting-stack. Continue Reading
Brickhouse is a library of user-defined functions for Hive and Hadoop that enables the agile development of big data pipelines. It provides tools and techniques that allow those pipelines to process larger datasets more robustly. The Brickhouse project was developed at Klout, whose team will continue to use and build upon Brickhouse and hosts the github repo. Since I’ve recently joined the Tagged team and am the the primary maintainer of Brickhouse, we’re going to start using it at Tagged as well.
