Make sure you sign yourself up for something like https://haveibeenpwned.com if you haven't already. Sometimes being timely in responding to leaks can make a big difference on any further leaks.

Dropbox should absolutely be held to the flame for trying to downplay the severity of this. Their communication says 'This is purely a preventative measure', but if you had/have reused this password on any other sites (let's face it a huge proportion of non tech savvy people do this) then your entire online presence may be exposed.

It was pretty obvious the dropbox hack was real several years ago, because lots of spam mail started arriving at my dropbox-unique email almost immediately after the breach. I changed my email to another unique address quickly back then. Unique-per-service email addresses work pretty well as a canary for breaches. Just make sure there is more uniqueness than just the service name to such addresses, or someone could see your pattern and start spamming by guessing popular services.

On a side note, don't forget the time dropbox accepted ANY password during logins - http://www.cnet.com/news/dropbox-confirms-security-glitch-no...

50% of the leaked hashes were bcrypt and the other 50% were salted sha1.

So, asking the HNers who crack passwords or follow the tech closely and have a good feel:

Salted sha1 can be brute forced much quicker, but in practical terms what kind of complexity of password is vulnerable today if it was stored salted sha1 vs bcrypt?

And how can this be projected to change in the next couple of years?

Repeating from the other thread:

I highly recommend Troy's HIBP service, hiding your e-mail from showing up in public searches (important for opsec), and donating whatever you can to Troy. He's doing excellent work. This is the first time it's notified me and it was great, because I completely forgot I signed up. I appreciate a service that low maintenance.

HIBP is a truly essential service and I'd be happy to pay more. Even with good password discipline it's useful knowledge on your exposure and I cannot recommend it enough. He mentions it near the end but this is one of those no brainers that should be repeated very loudly.

Since lots of people will be rotating passwords, this is probably a good time to set up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) as well.

I recommend Authy as your 2FA app, as it lets you set a backup password, which you can use to move your 2FA tokens between devices.

For your critical services, keeping encrypted copies of your backup codes is a must.

> As for Dropbox, they seem to have handled this really well.

I'm biased, but I can't agree with this. From what I can tell, there are two communications from Dropbox -- one in 2012 [1] and one last week [2].

In 2012 they did not disclose that hashes were stolen, so I don't see how it's really relevant. In the latest communication, they don't actually explain the risk to the user. They say it is "purely as a preventative measure" but if salts and hashes were accessed, then that is not the case.

Just because Troy doesn't have access to some of the salts, doesn't mean the attacker doesn't have access. We don't know how many iterations of SHA-1, but SHA-1 can be run by a single GPU on the order of billions of times per second. So unless Dropbox is coming out and saying they know for certain that random 128-bit salts were definitely not accessed by the attacker, almost all of the SHA1 hashed passwords are getting cracked. Users need to know their passwords are exposed, and must be reset not as a preventative measure, but because they are almost certain to be compromised.

As for the salted/bcrypt passwords, we can see from Troy's hash they used $2a$08$ which is bcrypt with a cost factor of 8 -- 2^8 iterations. Gosney's latest rig [3] could crack these bcrypt hashes at about 105,700 / 8 = 13,212 per second. That's not terrible, but that's still 416 billion tries in a year for a modest investment.

Dropbox is about the only service I use a memorable password for, as it has my 1Password file in it, which has my Google one-time-auth codes in it. If I lose my phone while on the road, only remembering my Dropbox password is going to get me out of the mess. Any sensible other solutions here? It's still ~14 characters, but other than making it more random, what are my options?
VeejayRampay 2 ago 7 replies      
Can someone in the know indicate how to BEST manage passwords for different services in a secure way in 2016? Should I be using password managers ( la 1Password, LastPassword and others), or use something like Keychain Access on Mac OS X (what are the Windows equivalents?), anything else? It's important to note that not everyone is well-educated on the matter, despite the fact that most people on HN are technical people.

EDIT: Thanks everyone for your answers, this is a good example of the power of communities.

What really bothers be about this is that Dropbox hasn't bothered to reset the sessions. Even after I manually reset my password (which I wasn't prompted or forced to do btw), all my apps (iPhone, desktop etc) that have existing sessions wasn't expired. So for all I know, a hacker might already have an open session to my Dropbox and changing the password will not fix that

Clarification edit: I did receive the e-mail from Dropbox letting me know that I should change my password, but when visiting dropbox.com I was already logged in and wasn't prompted to perform the pw reset

How is it possible for Hashcat to crack a 20 character long random password in 6ms? That is mind boggling.

I thought he was just going to hash the password and see if it fit the leaked hash, but no, it looks like he actually did the reverse and cracked the hash to see if it fit the password, right?

Edit: oh it looks like he provided the password to hashcat in the form of a psudo 'dictionary' to use. So Hashcat was not really cracking it - just iterating through a 1 word dictionary - like he said.

Funny, I just got an email a week ago saying they had noticed my password hadn't been changed in awhile (2012, which was interesting based on the article). Sounds like they knew about this and beefed up security.Or, they beefed up security on newer passwords but didn't cut over the old ones? The email did not mention any data theft, kinda wish it did. Too little, too late.

It never ceases to amaze me how people have bought into "cloud" computing. Its hard enough to protect your own data, on your own secure machine. Once you entrust your data to a third party you should have absolutely no doubt that it is at risk. The larger the organization that that third party is, the more inherently insecure it is. In the cloud, it only takes one careless, stupid, or inept person to expose the data of thousands (or millions). And you can't fix stupid.

No thanks, I'll keep control over my own data.

Wild-ass speculation in the absence of more information than a tweet and a photo of a pad fire:

SpaceX test-fire the first stage motors before each launch. If this was a test firing that went spectacularly wrong, it's embarrassing -- but there won't have been any human beings within blast range and it's better to fail in test than to fail in flight with a payload on top.

(If it was a catastrophic failure during fueling/de-fueling ops, that's another matter entirely, and far more serious -- and an explosive test failure is serious enough as it is.)

julianpye 1 ago 1 reply      

This article has some information on the new characteristics:

- Although considered to be an iterative upgrade from the Falcon 9 v1.1 that preceded it, the modifications to the Full Thrust version have increased the vehicles published liftoff capabilities by as much as 30 percent.

- A key component of this performance increase is the use of densified propellant. By chilling the liquid oxygen to minus 340 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 207 degrees Celsius) and the RP-1, a highly-refined form of kerosene used as rocket fuel, to 20 degrees Fahrenheit ( minus 7 degrees Celsius), SpaceX has demonstrated the capability to store more oxidizer and fuel in a given volume, as well as increase the flow of propellant through the turbopumps on the first stages nine Merlin 1D powerplants and on the upper stages lone MVac.

I really hope they can root cause this failure and get the flight schedule back up and running quickly.

This is a real problem.

My wife had been having extreme stomach pain for months, multiple trips to the emergency room, gastroenterologist, nothing could be found. She described that she felt that there was a hole in her stomach, the doctors called it stress.

On her final ER visit (two months after the pain began), something showed up in the CT scan (the 3rd one). Embedded in her belly fat was a wire. Everything clicked and I realized we had had steak on the grill the day that the problems started. She went into surgery and had the grill brush wire removed.

The wire had poked a hole in her stomach, and somehow worked its way out through the abdominal muscles into her belly fat. We are grateful that it exited that way, instead of into another major organ.

This issue is actually not isolated to just barbecues and barbecue brushes although the fact that it gets into your food does make it worse.

A few weeks ago my friend invited me to their high class HOA pool that had a sand beach. Wading around in about a foot of water I felt something pierce my foot when I took a step. When I pulled my foot out of the water to see what it was I could see it was a thin piece of metal and it had gone in all the way to my bone.

I concluded it probably came off a metal brush they use around the pool. Maybe something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Performance-Tool-W1148-Stainless-3-Pi...

That's when I realized that these types of metal brushes are a huge environmental hazard in general. They should probably be illegal in certain settings -- sand beaches being one of them.

Related: If you tenderize with a Jaccard-like tool, examine the teeth very closely before you cook your meat. I have had the blades break in half longitudinally where it still looked like a full blade, but had actually "delaminated" toward the end and left a 15mm chunk of pointed metal in my steak. It ended up in my gums.

I still use the broken blade set, but simply make sure it has all the parts before moving on. Nothing tenderizes quite like it in my experience. Had I swallowed that piece however it would have been a bad situation.

I hate to add to the wire brush worry, but it's not just BBQ.

So many resturants use wire brushes.

The last burrito I had was a few months ago. It had piece of wire in it. I kept the wire for a few days, and thought about it. The wire was not from a brush. I think it was old copper telephone wire. It that might have fell onto the grill from the ceiling, or wall?

Anyways, I haven't had a burrito since that instance. And tonight, I just got the visual of them cleaning the grill with a big, old wire brush--with gusto. Now I think about it, they had all types of black brushes near the grill.

Those grills are just large pieces of steel, without holes, or spaces. If loose wire isn't caught by the cook it just gets mixed in with the of steak, chicken, whatever.

(They make small metal detectors. My watch parts supplier is always advertising them. They claim they will find watch parts on the ground. I wonder if they could detect those small bristles?)

This thread caught my attention because I never heard of similar things here in Brazil (at least not in the south, where BBQ is a basic need)


1 - we use lifts (?): like this one [1]

2 - people, in general, clean the grill using some rough paper while the grill is still hot, then wash it with some sponge, water and soap.

Hardly something that has metal (like brass or steel brush) is used, since they affect the grill surface with small scratches that will accumulate more fat next time,in an endless loop.

I won't use pans with non stick surface coatings either.

Over time, the non stick coating wears away, but where did it go? It tends to have gone away in the areas where the food goes.

Thus the non stick coating goes into your food.

I threw out all my non stick pans and pots and bought stainless steel and never looked back.

Slightly off topic but I'm just going to throw it out there. If you are cooking with charcoal I highly recommend a Kamado style grill aka big green egg (BGE). Once you get one of those you will never go back. It is extremely efficient with charcoal.

There is one made by Char-Griller that is dirt cheap and light that I use year round (another advantage of the kamado is it can be freezing out and you can still grill fine).

I use one of these bristle brushes because I didn't know better, I've also even seen a few bristles fall out before & had me a bit concerned.

However I always end up microwaving for 30 seconds after, because by the time I've let the meat rest and turned off the grill my food isn't as warm as I want it.

So maybe I've been lucky, as I figure there would have been a reaction if there was metal in the microwave.

Anyways now I'm looking for an alternative, I'm thinking of using a large wooden spatula and let it conform to the grill overtime.

"Be careful with bristle brushes, especially cheap brass bristle brushes. Bristles fall out. Every year there are scores of sad news stories about people eating meals with bristles hiding on them. The bristle gets stuck in their throats or digestive systems, and repairs can get pretty ugly. Every so often someone dies."

Still the easiest, and most effective way to remove grease. Heat the grates and then brush. Simple. There are a variety of brushes like this with rustproof brass bristles but the Weber is my favorite because it is well built. Some have flat scrapers on the end as well as the brush. I like this model because the C shaped scraper on the end.

I have been waiting for this to hit 1.0 and more importantly get popular so that I can use it everywhere. I am really a fan of Yann Collet's work. These are extremely impressive work specially when you consider that lz4 seems to be better than snappy (by google) and zstandard from LZFSE (from apple). I think he is the first one to write a practical fast arithmetic coder using ANS. And look at how his huffman implementation blazes past zlib huffman though compresses less than FSE [0]. I also like reading his blog posts. While a lot of them goes over my head I can generally make a sense of what he is trying and why something's working despite the complexity.

The modern trend of compressors is to use more memory to achieve speed. This is good if you're using big-iron cloud computers...

"Zstandard has no inherent limit and can address terabytes of memory (although it rarely does). For example, the lower of the 22 levels use 1 MB or less. For compatibility with a broad range of receiving systems, where memory may be limited, it is recommended to limit memory usage to 8 MB. This is a tuning recommendation, though, not a compression format limitation."

8MB for the smallest preset? Back in the mid-2000s, I was attending a Jabber/XMPP discussion, about the viability of using libz for compressing the stream. It turned out that even just a 32kb window is huge when your connection server is handling thousands of connections at a time, and they were investigating the effect of using a modified libz with an even smaller window (it was hard-coded, back then).

I know Moore's law is in ZStandard's favor w.r.t. memory usage (what's 8MB when your server's got 64GB or more?), but I think it's useful to note that this is squarely aimed at web traffic backed by beefy servers.

I'm a complete dunce when it comes to compression and how it fits in the industry, so help me out here. Say that everyone accepts that Zstandard is amazing and we should start using it.

Would HTTP servers first have to add support, then browser vendors would follow?

A recent compression discussion I saw involved how do compressors fare on uncompressible input? For example, suppose you wanted to add compression to all your outbound network traffic. What would happen if there was mixed compressible traffic along with the uncomressible kind? A common case would be sending HTML along with JPEG.

Good compressors can't squeeze any more out of a JPEG, but they can back off fast and go faster. Snappy was designed to do this, and even implementations of gzip do it too. It greatly reduces the fear of CPU overhead to always on compression. I wonder how Zstd handles such cases?

*Ignoring security altogether

ryao 2 ago 1 reply      
This is an awesome blog post that is very well written, but the lack of incompressible performance analysis prevents It from providing a complete overview of zstd.

Incompressible performance measurements are important for interactive/realtime workloads and the numbers are extremely interesting because they can differ dramatically from the average case measurements. LZ4 for instance has been measured at doing 10GB/sec on incompressible data on a single core of a modern Intel Xeon processor. At the other end of the spectrum is the worst case scenario for incompressible data where performance slows to a crawl. I do not recall any examples in this area, but the point is that it is possible for algorithms to have great average case performance and terrible worst case performance. Quick sort is probably the most famous example of that concept.

I have no reason to suspect that zstd has bad incompressible performance, but the omission of incompressible performance numbers is unfortunate.

From the bits of testing I've done today, it's phenomenally fast on x86. Much better than gzip (and pigz for that matter) in every metric I think I generally care about: CPU Usage, Compression Speed, Decompression Speed, Compression Ratio.

On other architecture the picture gets a bit murky, it seems to get handily beaten by pigz through what at first blush I'd guess is just sheer parallelism. It's got solid performance, and without a shadow of doubt faster than vanilla gzip. If/as/when I get time, it'll be interesting to dig into why performance is worse there.

I think for typical JS/CSS/HTML sizes, and decompression times, probably maximum compression ratio, followed by decompression speed is what I'd look for. I don't care too much about compression speed, in the sense that if I have to spend 1 minute compressing JS to crunch it by 10%, but I serve that file a million times, then as long as decompression doesn't negate the gain in network time saved, it's a win.

I guess the other factor for mobile is, besides memory and decompression speed, how do various compression schemes fare battery wise?

This is not about taking on Uber. Google is testing AI for self driving cars. Once we have self driving cars, the idea is that you deploy these cars and the cars figure out who to pick up and who to drop off and possible doing group pick ups along the way. Waze is going to predict who to pick up based on their collected data thus far using ML, their data scientists are going to supervise it and correct it. Once we have self driving cars, Google will have the tech that can manage assigning cars and picking people up. This is what it is all about.

Google is not "taking on Uber." An important point is that Google is not making money off the payments for the ride, which presumably all go to the driver.

For the driver that means defraying the cost of a commute in return for going a few minutes out of his way. True ride-sharing, not a gypsy-cabs-plus-reputation network. It's more akin to a transport-specific Splitwise than to Uber.

What Google gets out of this is a real-world model of on demand automated transport patterns, pricing, demand, etc.

Honestly I wish they wouldn't try to compete on price. Maybe I'm alone with this, but I'd rather not feel obligated to tip a driver because the ride is so cheap. Pay them a living wage, let me pay the exact fee, and let me not have to carry goddamn cash like I used to in the era of Taxis.

e: Addressing common replies:

"This is for people commuting already" -- okay, point taken; my point about Uber/Lyft still stands.

"Tipping isn't obligatory" -- yes, it kind of is. Uber used to bar drivers form asking, but they recently lost a lawsuit over that rule and so now Uber drivers will occasionally ask for tips (which will cause it to slowly become the norm). When tipping becomes the norm, the low-base-wage of the driver becomes less of an 'issue', and then tipping becomes even more of a necessity as that is where the drivers will make their actual margins.

With so many competitors in the marketplace, such as Lyft, Gett, Via, Juno, and now Google, seems like Uber's leadership position is at risk. There appears to be very little differentiation between all of them, and while Google is starting out with carpooling, it is just a matter of time before they expand. Not sure how any investor could ever justify Uber's $60B valuation. In 10 years, will likely be 1/10 of that.

I can't help but wonder if this ride sharing is a similar move. It sounds like a stepping stone for the kind of services that might be practical with self-driving cars. There might be some angle on collecting data that isn't obvious.

Google had to get in at some point. They should have entered a year ago may be but I think this is a good enough time. Google can afford to not take a cut for their service and hurt Uber quite a bit. If they are not taking a cut they can also reduce the price for the rider.

However, how can it be viable to the driver. I understand if someone is already going in that direction they can make a little money but if I want to live on it (like Uber is pitching) will the price be enough?

Ok, not unexpected given that Drummond stepped back from being a board member, of course they got that seat by buying nearly 7% of the company[1]. Which if they had sold it to the other investors who came in on $62.5B round[2] they could have taken about $900M out which they could use to start their own ride sharing service. Sort of like drinking the Unicorn's blood to create a spell that will kill the Unicorn. The irony here, especially after Google did the same thing at Apple, big investment, board seat, oh wait you have a business that seems to be a winner (iPhone) lets step back and do that!

I wonder if this will make it harder for GV to participate in any sort of funding rounds.

Can we stop calling every new taxi service "ride sharing"? Are people "sharing" anything in any meaningful way? The drivers car isn't shared, he sells a ride, that's a Taxi. A medallion or other arbitrary system doesn't define what a taxi is.

Can I tell uber I want to share a ride to the airport with any stranger? (my taxi co will do that)?

Uber and Lyft have had to tackle so many legal issues already. Drastically improving and modifying how they deal with drivers on a daily basis from both an operational and legal standpoint.

If what the article says is true about google vetting problem drivers with mere user reviews, they don't know what they are getting into.

I think the idea is great of course, and I imagine it would cut down on freeway traffic during commute hours. It just seems that the legal web of trust, insurance, safety, etc will be a lot to handle.

These have a fairly simple fix that you can implement yourself as a developer. Don't let your services listen on (AKA bind to) or

The entire block is dedicated to the loopback interface [1]. That's 2^24 - 2 unique IP addresses you can choose at random. This basically eliminates the feasibility of the DNS rebinding component, as it would take prohibitively long to find the actual loopback address that your services have bound to.

It's important to note that this is much more effective than not using the default port. It's much faster to iterate all 2^16 ports on the same IP address than it is to wait for DNS TTL to expire so you can rebind to another IP address.

As a bonus, you don't have to worry about port collisions when nobody's allowed to listen on Everybody can use 8080 if they want.

In a past life I had to write some DNS rebind attacks for some CPE testsuite software that is out there.

It was very easy to write some javascript that hangs out in the browser, gets the updated DNS host as the address (sure sure, you can go crazy guessing other addresses) and then about 60% of everyone was on admin:admin or something as common; the first 12 or so bits of an ethernet address are the vendor identifier, which makes the process even easier to assume. Then you just start posting data to well-known web admin interfaces and update the router password.

I have no idea how well this works, three or four years later...

I have seen this story posted and discussed in several locations. It boggles my mind that everyone is talking about DNS filtering and/or browser security models, when it's painfully obvious that the actual problem is the fact that the targeted services (redis, memcached, elasticsearch, etc.) apparently do nothing whatsoever to authenticate incoming connections (at least in their default configuration).

Yes: remote DNS servers have no business serving up loopback addresses. Yes: browsers shouldn't let remote scripts access resources on the local network.

But WTF are you guys doing running services bound to network ports (even if only accessible from the local machine) that apparently have no authentication whatsoever? Have none of you ever used a multi-user machine?

When I was in university we had just three SunOS boxen shared amongst all undergrads in my faculty, and all three were directly accessible from the whole of the internet - there was no firewall of any kind. Even back in those rather more innocent days you learned real quick not to put up services which didn't authenticate every incoming connection.

A good firewall is not a substitute for having individual machines be secure.

A machine having only one (intended) user is not an excuse to run services that are not secure against local users.

> The attack depends on multiple software products all making very reasonable decisions about how they should work, but the way they interact with each other leads to a vulnerability.

I'm sorry, but I disagree. A browser allowing externally loaded scripts to access private ip ranges is not a reasonable decision.

PSA: To protect yourself from this, and some more bad browser defaults, use NoScript with "allow all scripts globally." Keep the JS, but filter out some bad stuff. Also enable ABE (application boundaries enforcer, made to solve exactly this problem) for good measure.

Question: could DNS rebinding be used to tap into 1Password inter-process communication? They use localhost websockets for IPC; it's authenticated through the request origin and then through verifying the PID is in fact the browser [1].

DNS rebinding could definitely get around the PID check, but could it spoof an origin to something like "safari-extension://com.agilebits.onepassword4-safari-2bua8c4s2c"?

Browsers could pin DNS responses when a page finishes loading so any further requests for that domain will use the cached IP instead of doing name lookups but that would be a PITA because they generally rely on the OS DNS subsystem. It might also break long-running pages that won't failover anymore.

It would probably be easier to simply keep a IS_LOOPBACK flag for every DNS name resolved and kill any connection attempts if the flag changes while the page is loaded. Then you can keep using the OS DNS resolver logic.

DNS might legitimately return a different CDN but it sure as hell won't flip between private IP spaces and the public internet.

When you hear about someone jail breaking an iphone trough the browser, this is how. The fact that the browser works as a window to all tcp-sockets running on a device, it's the perfect way to exploit buffert overflows on a device that lacks a terminal.

Also remember this with all your IoT appliances running on your local network. Even if it has a local IP-address, as long as you have a computer with a browser on the same network, you might as well consider your devices being publicly accessible from the rest of the internet.

Do developers often run things on localhost? I mean sure, you'll have things running on your dev machine, but for me at least, will just show the default webroot, with its placeholder index.html. All my actual sites listen for custom hostnames (since otherwise you only get one site per machine or have to do silly things with port numbers on the url).

So unless somebody has crafted a page specifically targeting me and my naming convention for local sites, this wouldn't be an issue. And of course, once you hit a site, you'd still need to deal with the same security that the public facing version sees. You certainly wouldn't go out of your way to disable that on your local machine.

Databases are named, and often live within named database server instances, so they'd need to be specifically targeted as well. And, again, they have authorization to deal with. It's not like you'd leave that open either.

Is it common to do it any other way?

This is an interesting, albeit well-known attack vector. A similar attack was used to attack Avast [0].

The author notes that write access could be used to inject dangerous objects (e.g. malicious pickles) into the database. This is arguably a much more serious bug because it does not require DNS rebinding (such a request can be performed cross-origin) nor can it be mitigated by refusing to read the response (as Chrome is proposing to do).

In short: the database modification attack is potentially much more severe, but as of yet no precise attack chain has been identified. However, I think it's very likely that some server software uses e.g. pickles in the database.

Scripts from the public Internet shouldn't be able to access private or local networks as a matter of policy.

Similarly, in a high-security environment, scripts from a private network shouldn't be able to access the public Internet - to help prevent exfiltration of private data.

A couple comments for your own safety and the safety of the vehicle:

1) Those batteries should be in battery boxes. You can find them at any marine supply store. Note that for boats where batteries are commonly stored like you have them there, it's the law. For RV's it's a good practice and may be required by some insurers and in some states.

2) H2S also known as hydrogen sulfide. It's explosive and it's possible for even the best sealed batteries to have a problem whereby H2S is released. If those batteries have vent ports, you need to ensure they are connected to a vent tube and run out of the vehicle. If they don't have vent tubes, don't assume they won't vent. I run sealed batteries in my boat and it came with a H2S detector connected bilge ventilator. If the H2S detector senses a build-up of the gas it sets off an audible alarm and kicks the ventilator on. I've seen the aftermath of battery compartment explosions. Trust me, it's not something you want to experience. The cheapest option here is to get batteries which allow for the connection of a vent tube.

UPDATE: here's a decent article on the issue with a picture of a vented battery box (I didn't know those were a thing - cool!):


UPDATE #2: just went out and looked at my boat. This is what's in the battery compartment attached to the bilge fan:

I really understood that in the desert in Utah, where I got the feeling that I wasn't supposed to be there, far away from any semblance of civilization, but there I was surviving just fine with the help of our machinations.

I bought my RV for what you did, and its a perfectly comfortable home... a home that goes 80mph! I've been to almost every state now, and lived on hilltops with "million dollar" views, been in the desert under the stars, worked from deep in the rainforest in the pacific northwest, all for less money than rent for my apartment was. We can live comfortably for about a week completely off the grid. I would have bought a smaller, more offroad capable van, but I live in it with my fiance, so that was untenable.

I don't know how long you've been doing it, but there are definitely stressors and downsides that accompany the lifestyle. My RV was broken into once and I had everything stolen, and since then I've been constantly on edge when being away from my vehicle, so I often wish it looked beat to shit to deter people from messing with it. Also, staying in parking lots sucks and is sad if you're doing it for any extended period of time. I definitely have a missing sense of community and permanence, but its been a great journey!

Great article, small technical issue:

First, cut all the 0 AWG wire. Why 0 AWG? Because I had a 1500 watt inverter, which meant I could be pulling 150 amps (1500 watts output / 120 volts output 12 volts input = 150 amps input).

That's nearly the right answer, but "watts / volts volts" is not going to end in "amps" as an answer. I'd suggest: 1500 watts / 12 volts = 125 amps.

I also whole heartedly agree with him with statements like "By far the most beautiful place I've driven through has been the drive from Butte, MT to Idaho Falls, ID.". I drive mostly across the country twice a year. I avoid interstate highways. The evening routine is to look at satellite imagery for interesting terrain, look at something like Panoramio to see where people take pictures and of what, then piece together some travel for the next day. Pull over and take a mini-hike if anything looks interesting.

As cool as this, like a lot of folks here I don't see how a pickup and a gooseneck wouldn't be a better (probably cheaper) option, even if you had to renovate / shop around for the gooseneck.

I know a whole lot of folks who live this way, mostly itinerant musicians.

While this is a much nicer build-- I think it's quite beautiful-- it is a lot closer to a custom conversion van most folks I know have much different, less successful experiences with DIY RVs.

To the folks who cite "stealth" as a rationale here, there are a lot of reasons why you might get kicked off a patch of ground... one persons "hack" is another person's criminal trespass. There are a lot of great places that you can camp out without getting hassled and without relying on other folks footing the bill for your plumbing and pavement.

To the folks citing mobility, I still don't see how that kind of van is more mobile than a pickup.

So while I think that it's really cool-- I gotta say that I think it would have to be cheaper / easier / more reliable to buy a pickup and 5th wheel or similar.

I'm getting a Ford E-150 van for $1500 next week. Going to put in hardwood flooring, maybe insulation and plywood on the walls. Excited.

Awesome build!

I am a product designer working in tech in San Francisco. I also live in a stealth camper van, mostly by the Whole Foods in Potrero. I ride a folding bike to work downtown. Life is very good and I wouldn't trade this setup for anything.

Here is my build out:http://wonderbywonder.tumblr.com/tagged/chrono/chrono

Or you could just move to Poland. $33,750 could buy you studio in any medium town in Poland, even in sub-million population cities.

You'd get: no mortgage, apartment with a toilet, clean running water, wifi and all the electricity that you'll ever need. 5-10 times more area for your stuff. Monthly cost of utilities, tax and fee towards building maintenance of about $150 in total, access to a lot of young, English speaking people you could hire for cheap to help you with your projects.

I am having a hard time with this article. On the one hand, it resonates with me DEEPLY.

"Sure, it's clich, but it's clich for a reason -- this subconscious drive for freedom is hard-wired in our DNA. No modern comfort or toy can take the place of true autonomy."

On the other hand, I can't deny certain life comforts. Relationships come to mind when considering a life like this. Sure, living frugally on the road while coding your own project sounds exhilarating. But I wonder how I'd feel without my significant other?

I guess what I want more than a life in a van, is economic freedom with a home.

I always read these stories with a sense of awe and wonder. "I took 2 years off of my totally boring office job to X" where X is something that is 1. expensive and/or 2. not generating income or not nearly as much income as Boring Office Job. How the hell does one live without their salary for 2 years without going into debt or depleting savings? Don't you people have student loans to pay off, medical bill payments, or other financial obligations that can't be delayed? I don't think I could last much more than 3 months, and I'm quite proud of my meager emergency savings. What the hell do you people do for a living that you can save such a vast amount of money (and presumably blow it during said 2 year activity)?

I'm not criticizing--just very curious. Most of the time when this kind of question is asked, the response is a vague and coy, "Well I got a little savings..." Awesome--how on earth?

"use the public facilities"

Yeah, right. That's the plan for the first little while & then you'll be just pooping in the woods.

You see, we're in europe in a motorhome. Every time we see a little camper we know two things are going to happen. They are going to start sliding doors at all hours of the day.

And they are going to go poop in the woods.

And there are hundreds of them.

So be sure to get yourself a proper porta potty. Nobody wants to see your toilet paper.

This is a heart-warming story but he is definitely conflating 2 separate issues.

If you want to have a gap year and drive around the country then do that and it's clearly what he wanted. If you want to cut down on expenses there are far better ways of doing it without buying a van. It makes as much sense as saying the only way to cross a river is to build a giant sling (fun - yes, but mundane options are available).

I'm actually curious about the insurance situation. If you are living in your van I would expect the insurance to either be a lot more or worse, to decide not to cover you because you didn't get a special policy. Then there's the issue of what happens if you are in an accident because now your wheels and your bed are in the shop, a shop which is not going to be able to restore your situation properly.

I did exactly this! Bought a used NV2500, went to town. Took 7 months to build. Have closets, cabinets, cooktop, sink, wood floors, butcher block counters, fridge, electricity via solar, bed, etc. etc.

I knew nothing about insulation, wiring, woodwork, power tools, etc. and learned everything as I built it.

Was not cheap, because I didn't want to give up any luxuries, so breakeven is in a matter of years, not months. However, its been treating me well. I have spots that I prefer in South Bay and in San Francisco depending where I'm working out of.

I am about to embark on a similar journey. I started off buying a 1993 33' Diesel pusher motorhome with the intent to travel the US fulltime while working remotely. It was awesome fixing it up and making it livable, modern, beautiful, and adding solar. Working with my hands was extremely rewarding! That said I soon learned that 33' is a huge vehicle which I did not feel comfortable driving regularly over mountains and severely hindered locations I could camp at. Now that big rig is for sale... instead I've founded a really cool travel trailer with loads of solar ready to go! I plan to pull that behind my 4runner equiped for overland adventures and cannot wait to get started! Great article and I hope others can try this lifestyle. I hope to share some of my experiences with others as well.

Having a campervan without a toilet might bite you in some places. New Zealand used to be a great place for this but a couple of years ago they made it illegal to sleep in such a vehicle just about everywhere except designated pay-per-night campgrounds and certain districts each with their own special rules. Even then you're usually not allowed to linger more than a few days at a time in one place.

I doubt America will go that way with so many independent states and so much wilderness though. I'm amazed he can sleep in Wal-mart's carpark.

This life really isn't sustainable as he gets older, and he's very vulnerable to risk, accident, or loss. Oh, it seems romantic as hell, but the first time the flu hits you, you suddenly realize you've chosen to stick yourself into a tiny box with no indoor plumbing, no quiet, and that has to move every few days or the police will start rapping on your windows.

Or when the van breaks down, and you have zero choice but to fix it right away, and you have to pray to god you budgeted enough to cover it. Plus the van itself wears out much faster than a vehicle most people use because it has to move so much. RV lifestyle in general is far more expensive than people realize, and provides zero equity. If he ever wishes to expand his game business, he's going to have a rough time.

It's romantic, but it's very much a young person's game and he'll probably discover the joys of home ownership when he's 35 and trying to sleep in his van in 90 degree weather.

Kudos to this guy. I'm in my early 30s. My wife and I sold our house almost 2 years ago, bought an RV, and we've been traveling debt-free ever since. Feels good, man. But it's not without its drawbacks. Loneliness can be a constant battle when you're away from family, friends and coworkers. It took about a year to get comfortable with the travel routine. And then there's the maintenance. If I knew all of this ahead of time, I'd still do it.

I've spent 6 of the past 7 years living in an RV (motorhome first, now an old Avion travel trailer with a big old truck to tow it). I recommend it for anyone who is unencumbered enough of other people and responsibilities to do so (i.e., it may not be the right thing for a family with kids, though I know some families with kids who do it and seem happy).

The freedom to travel is magnificent. It precludes many kinds of opportunities, but if you can work remotely, why not do it at the beach or in the mountains or in the desert or wherever you like? It's not dramatically less expensive than living in fixed housing (though that depends on where you were living in the house and where you're parking your RV; when I first started I moved out of a tiny rental house in Mountain View, CA, which cost $2145/month, so I'm not spending anywhere near that now), or at least it hasn't been for me, but there are many benefits outside of cost.

One thing I'll say: a pop up conversion can be done while maintaining the possibility of incognito mode, and it is really lovely when you are in proper campgrounds to have the pop up!

So happy to see this post on HN, but also kind of sad because if this because a thing it will no longer be as unique, and they will start drawing more attention. Also, people in these campers are the coolest, nicest, most down to earth, happiest, most respectful, adventurous, amazing people (in my experience), and if this becomes 'cool,' then we'll start having the cool kids driving around in these.

20yrs_no_equity 4 ago 0 replies      
I've spent 11 of the past 20 years "homeless" by choice following various practices from living on a boat, to living in a truck camper, to traveling the world living in AirBnBs, to occasionally renting apartments but never really living there. But I'll come back to that.

I want to address several peoples concerns about this guys lifestyle and the presumed limitations:

0. First off Loved that he was using Soylent. That solves a big problem of needing dried food but not liking freeze dried food. If I were to go back to vehicle living I would use a combo of Soylent and Sous Vide. Sous Vide cookers like the Anova are very small, and you can do it just with boiled water, zip lock bags and a thermometer if you want. The results are really fantasic. 30 seconds searing steaks on the grill then 40 minutes in the bath and you have better steaks than you can get at any restaurant for less than $50-- and you can do that on top of am mountain if you wanted! So the food situation is much better than the days of crates of raman.

1. Sex. Sex is totally possible, and it's not creepy at all. When you get on the road and you're traveling you will run into people who are going the same route multiple times. In this way there's a virtual community. This varies regionally of course, travel by train in europe or in alaska for the summer and it becomes pretty tight nit. The women and men you meet there are not exactly going to turn their nose up at your van because that's how they are traveling to. There's a whole vagabond subculture in the USA that ranges from kids hoping trains to techies in vans like this guy to Oldsters in RVs. And there's nothing sexier than a guy who will break with convention and go do interesting things. FTR, my partner and I picked up a woman in the UK who then travelled with us and lived with us for a couple years in poly triad. IT only lasted three years but I don't think the definition of a successful relationship should only be ones that end in death!

2. Cost- you really can save a lot of money. IT's amazing that you can live around the world traveling full time for less than the cost of living in a major west coast city. If you're doing a startup, that's really nice- be in berlin, then go to london, etc. We ran a three person startup (the triad above) going form england to Romania to Chile. While we didn't live as cheaply as we should have or could have (it's a skill) we didn't live more expensively than we would have if we stayed in Seattle (and we never would have met the woman in the UK). When it costs less or doesn't cost more but you have a better experience, isn't that a much better value?

3. The major factor is movement. When you're still- say at a campground or an AirBnB, or anchored at a dock, you save your movement energy, and thus cost, and you spend time working and enjoying. When you're underway- sailing requires attention as does driving, taking trains and planes costs money, boats and cars take gas. The ideal situation is one where you can stay places for a period of time (we used to stay in a country 90 days- the visa limit) to maximize your productivity on the road. This is a lifestyle, not a vacation from life. You earn money when you go, but you earn less money on tavel days.

4. Settling in- another part of the cost of travel is the settling in time. I need to have a good work chair and in each country we would spend the first week or so getting our spot set up to be productive on our startup.

5. The best thing about traveling is meeting the locals- especially outside the USA. This is the reason for the 90 day visa too. You can build real relationships. 4 countries in a year is much better than 9 countries in 4 days! And it's cheaper per-day, because you can be working during the day, and thus it's sustainable.

6. There are many ways to do it. I like the boat the best- it was only 30 feet but it was center cockpit and huge. If I had the balls of a blue water sailor I never would have left and would be traveling around the world in it. But it takes a rare breed to cross an ocean in a 30 foot cruiser!

This van is very much like my experience in the Truck Camper. The truck camper cost me $5,500 all in- an old Toyota Pickup and a $3,500 SKAMPER. You have to crank it to raise the roof. I travelled all the way to Prudhoe Bay in that truck- spending a couple weeks north of the arctic circle.

You can never forget an experience like that!

7. Eventually I vowed to never stop. I decided this was a philosophy and whatever methodology it doesn't really matter. Am I still traveling full time? I'm on a lease, so many of you would say no, but I think I am. You could be too.

What's the difference in lifestyle between crashing in a French student's flat in Romania for 3 months and being on a lease in the USA for 6? In romania 90 days is the max visa and maximizing productive time was ideal. a 6 month lease in the USA isn't that different from the 6 months we lived in the UK (they have a longer visa for US residents).

I now think in terms of the GPWR - Gross Personal Weight Rating. That is the total weight of me and all my possessions. When I was on the boat it was around 13,000 pounds - most of it boat. For the truck it was about 7,000 pounds, most of it truck.

When we were backpacking it was all in the pack- about 60 pounds. Now I am staying in apartments but restrict myself to only what can fit in my car (so I can move across country at a moments notice if I want.) I don't live in the car so it's a tradeoff, I have to rent a sleeping space.

But I'm still mobile. I don't have a bed frame, for instance, I bought a bunch of Akro Mils plastic crates. Turn them upside down and they make a really damn solid bed frame (best one I've ever had, actually) The mattress fits in the back of my car with the seats folded down. I have a mid sized SUV and camping is easy- just put the mattress in the car. Better than a tent (stays warmer). But when I need to move, I can turn the crates right side up and all my possessions go into them.

So, where should I live next? Once my lease is up, I'm going. (and knowing that also puts the kibosh on silly buying.)

Start thinking of every possession as weight added to your GPWR. Do you want to live in backpack? Pare down. Do you want to live in a van? You don't have to be as careful but you should think about how many TVs you buy.

Speaking of minimal living, I've just recently moved to a new city for work, and I've shacked myself up in a backpackers, and plan on staying at the backpackers probably until the end of the year.

It has a lot going for it. It's cheaper than rent (by a significant amount), and it's literally 3 minutes from work. I also get to meet lots of interesting people.

I have my backpack and a laundry bag of kit, and that's it. It's about as minimal as you can get, which has been an interesting experience for me as I usually have stacks and stacks of stuff.

It does have some disadvantages, such as being rather noisy, and the fact that you have to carry all your valuables around with you wherever you go, since things tend to go missing.

Isn't this only true if you don't have a fixed rate mortgage? If you bought a house in the 90s then I'm almost sure you're paying less than the average of rent your house might fetch. I've never amortized the cost over the lifetime of the house though.

wow, what a treat. love the writing and layout of this blog post.

van life is basically not viable right now. people dont like taking their shits in mcdonalds. vans get super cold and moisture can be a huge problem. showers have to be in gyms unless you want to carry tons of water with you. most areas are very hostile to van dwellers from what i can tell. but there are interesting solutions to these problems.

- van dwellers are not received well in most places. you have to park on the side of the street somewhere a lot of the time. so the obvious solution is to create some kind of business that does lot rentals. you can pay a very low fee and have a nice place to park for the night. this could be really great -- images of all kinds of different people meeting and connecting come to mind. but there is the problem that these businesses would be overrun by poor people for lack of a better word. they would become ghettos and attract a lot of crime. so perhaps a better solution is to create an app where anyone can rent out their driveway and vet each van dweller on their own based on their social media, past reviews and other information provided on the app. also vans are physically dispersed and criminals dont have a one stop shop for vulnerable vans.

- taking shits in gas stations, taking showers in gyms and moisture and cold can all be solved by the same thing: making vans from the ground up that are meant for living. i think in the end, if you want a van that is nice to live in then you need to put down real money just like any other dwelling. the van meant for living would look like this: has EV drive train and a huge battery. in the near future this will be complemented by a sophisticated generator (with huge fuel reserve) that can operate at low wattage when demand is low or operate at high wattage when demand is high such as when driving with a low battery. in the far future batteries alone will be enough. solar should be included but only to prevent the battery from losing charge completely when sitting around for a long time. showering is done with recycled water. water is stored in the floor pan and passed through a filter between showers. ozone is easily generated and mixed with the shower water regularly to kill bacteria. the filter used could be very sophisticated if hundreds of showers without refilling were desired. the toilet would need to be a revolution in toilets. there has been a lot of work by the likes of the gates foundation to create toilets that are less resource intensive and clean for use in the third world. the best products of these efforts are desiccation toilets that essentially desiccate the feces though various means. one version drys the feces and burns it to dry more and also drive water purification. the toilet in the van would do something similar. the toilet would disinfect thoroughly with chlorine or ozone and then desiccate. the water left over would be put back into the top chamber of the toilet so to speak and used for the next flush. the desiccated feces could then be stored in much less volume than non desiccated feces and with less hassle. disposing of it would be pretty easy. other issues such as temperature and moister could be taken care of with heavy duty insulation, de-humidification and other things that are built into the van by design rather than added in as an after-thought if added at all. anyway, overall what you have is an extremely sophisticated, several hundred thousand dollar vehicle. thats what it would take to make van life a viable option for more than a year or two imo.

Victory for Net Neutrality in Europe juliareda.eu

As always, devil is in the details.

If you look at the fine print in the published "Guidelines for implementing Net Neutratily" [1] linked in the article you will see that there are 3 exceptions to the rule (a,b,c). Being "c" the one that should fear us most:


 a) "comply with Union legislative acts (...)
-> meaning that a court order can change Net Neutrality, hmmm ok.

 b) preserve the integrity and security of the network, of services provided via that network, and of the terminal equipment of end-users;
-> meaning that in order to guarantee the security of the network Net Neutrality may be avoided. I'm so-so on this one.

 c) prevent impending network congestion and mitigate the effects of exceptional or temporary network congestion, provided that equivalent categories of traffic are treated equally.
-> Meaning that ISPs can throttle specific categories of traffic at their own will.

This last one ruins the whole law. And this is not what me as European wanted. ISPs won :(

Next fight : That ISPs advertise the minimum guaranteed bandwidth and are banned from advertising the maximum theoretical number.

Then only we could measure that they do offer the same bandwidth with Netflix and Vimeo as they advertise. Net neutrality at its best.

Edit: Of course the number will be very low because they have to (God forbid!) provision their network to serve this bandwidth to all customers during peak hours. But what we're looking for is not a huge number - we're looking for a number that allows meaningful comparison with competitors.

It encourages me to see that the European court at least has some people on it that seem to understand that net neutrality is in fact a human rights issue.

And this is why Brexit is so heart-breaking. I'm surrounded by people in my personal life who think it's a fantastic idea, but they're not the most... informed? Likewise for local politicians.

(Side note to my rant: I have this theory that the rise of the iPhone, and the fact that it is such a big part of people's lives now, has fooled regular folks into believing that they're experts on technology. I have no more than anecdotal evidence for this).

I strongly suspect that local legislators will see no conflict whatsoever with scrapping these laws when the exit finally comes, and it saddens me that I'm surrounded by a lot of people that will be cheering when it happens.

This is from a real conversation I had this week:

"What it boils down to is do you want to have us control our own laws and decisions and borders, or have to take orders from some bureaucrat in Brussels that doesn't understand us?"

Yes, I would rather have decisions made by people in Brussels that understand what they're doing.

daveloyall 3 ago 0 replies      
For your convenience, here's just the text "in the boxes" (the Recitals), from http://berec.europa.eu/eng/document_register/subject_matter/...

These are the first 9, the other 10 are here: https://gist.github.com/daveloyall/a1112bb70412d77bebc809090...

Recital 1=========

This Regulation aims to establish common rules to safeguard equal andnon-discriminatory treatment of traffic in the provision of internetaccess services and related end-users rights. It aims to protectend-users and simultaneously to guarantee the continued functioning ofthe internet ecosystem as an engine of innovation.

Recital 2=========

The measures provided for in this Regulation respect the principle oftechnological neutrality, that is to say they neither impose nordiscriminate in favour of the use of a particular type of technology.

Recital 3=========

The internet has developed over the past decades as an open platformfor innovation with low access barriers for end-users, providers ofcontent, applications and services and providers of internet accessservices. The existing regulatory framework aims to promote theability of end-users to access and distribute information or runapplications and services of their choice. However, a significantnumber of end-users are affected by traffic management practices whichblock or slow down specific applications or services. Those tendenciesrequire common rules at the Union level to ensure the openness of theinternet and to avoid fragmentation of the internal market resultingfrom measures adopted by individual Member States.

Recital 4=========

An internet access service provides access to the internet, and inprinciple to all the end-points thereof, irrespective of the networktechnology and terminal equipment used by end-users. However, forreasons outside the control of providers of internet access services,certain end points of the internet may not always beaccessible. Therefore, such providers should be deemed to havecomplied with their obligations related to the provision of aninternet access service within the meaning of this Regulation whenthat service provides connectivity to virtually all end points of theinternet. Providers of internet access services should therefore notrestrict connectivity to any accessible end-points of the internet.

Recital 5=========

When accessing the internet, end-users should be free to choosebetween various types of terminal equipment as defined in CommissionDirective 2008/63/EC (1). Providers of internet access services shouldnot impose restrictions on the use of terminal equipment connecting tothe network in addition to those imposed by manufacturers ordistributors of terminal equipment in accordance with Union law.

Recital 6=========

End-users should have the right to access and distribute informationand content, and to use and provide applications and services withoutdiscrimination, via their internet access service. The exercise ofthis right should be without prejudice to Union law, or national lawthat complies with Union law, regarding the lawfulness of content,applications or services. This Regulation does not seek to regulatethe lawfulness of the content, applications or services, nor does itseek to regulate the procedures, requirements and safeguards relatedthereto. Those matters therefore remain subject to Union law, ornational law that complies with Union law.

Recital 7=========

In order to exercise their rights to access and distribute informationand content and to use and provide applications and services of theirchoice, end-users should be free to agree with providers of internetaccess services on tariffs for specific data volumes and speeds of theinternet access service. Such agreements, as well as any commercialpractices of providers of internet access services, should not limitthe exercise of those rights and thus circumvent provisions of thisRegulation safeguarding open internet access. National regulatory andother competent authorities should be empowered to intervene againstagreements or commercial practices which, by reason of their scale,lead to situations where end-users choice is materially reduced inpractice. To this end, the assessment of agreements and commercialpractices should, inter alia, take into account the respective marketpositions of those providers of internet access services, and of theproviders of content, applications and services, that areinvolved. National regulatory and other competent authorities shouldbe required, as part of their monitoring and enforcement function, tointervene when agreements or commercial practices would result in theundermining of the essence of the end-users rights.

Recital 8=========

When providing internet access services, providers of those servicesshould treat all traffic equally, without discrimination, restrictionor interference, independently of its sender or receiver, content,application or service, or terminal equipment. According to generalprinciples of Union law and settled case-law, comparable situationsshould not be treated differently and different situations should notbe treated in the same way unless such treatment is objectivelyjustified.

Recital 9=========

The objective of reasonable traffic management is to contribute to anefficient use of network resources and to an optimisation of overalltransmission quality responding to the objectively different technicalquality of service requirements of specific categories of traffic, andthus of the content, applications and services transmitted. Reasonabletraffic management measures applied by providers of internet accessservices should be transparent, non-discriminatory and proportionate,and should not be based on commercial considerations. The requirementfor traffic management measures to be non-discriminatory does notpreclude providers of internet access services from implementing, inorder to optimise the overall transmission quality, traffic managementmeasures which differentiate between objectively different categoriesof traffic. Any such differentiation should, in order to optimiseoverall quality and user experience, be permitted only on the basis ofobjectively different technical quality of service requirements (forexample, in terms of latency, jitter, packet loss, and bandwidth) ofthe specific categories of traffic, and not on the basis of commercialconsiderations. Such differentiating measures should be proportionatein relation to the purpose of overall quality optimisation and shouldtreat equivalent traffic equally. Such measures should not bemaintained for longer than necessary.

Tricks to Monetize Your Side Projects jeremyaboyd.com

mittermayr 18 ago 3 replies      
Along with all the others here, I also immediately unsubscribe and get rid of products that feel like they're a bit too close for comfort. My side project is now making a lot of money, and people value tremendously not getting newsletters, or messages from John, the customer superhero. There is value in email, tremendous value, but I strongly believe that it's timing, wording and situation that will get you the most mileage here. I send one single email after about a week of no user pulse, all it says is: we still have your data, looks like you may haven't had a chance to try this yet, here's a coupon that expires today and it'll get you some extra credits (or whatever your product offers). If not interested, simply remove your account by clicking here.

No point in storing dead accounts. I don't care about a falsely inflated user base. People love that.

Also, I end the email by saying, "click reply to talk to our CEO directly and ask any questions you may have."

The last one gets a lot of conversions, and helps tremendously in figuring out what their concerns are.

This system is doing the magic for me.

> First and foremost, always, always, always, split test EVERYTHING.

That's a lot of work and as a developer I couldn't care less, since it's just a side project. Just ask people about your core message and if it doesn't resonate, change things.

> On-boarding

This is the hardest thing to get right. Too much instruction will be counter productive, too little will be unpredictable. Black magic.

I'd instantly unsubsribe. Leave me the alone please with your followup mails. I can instantly tell if your personal touch email is sent 60 min later that it's a bot. Product hunt follow up mails on my submissions are bots. I find it lame.

It also probably converts more :)

> Price Anchoring

Do, test, ask. This is the most crucial part of any business. I'd personally push a lot of focus here.

> QA the SHIT out of your product

Well said, any product start should have this as #1 priority.

> While I know this is probably only a side project, there is no reason you couldn't turn this into a viable small startup with an additional 1-2 developers

What you listed above already takes a fulltime job of 1-2 people.

MattBearman 19 ago 6 replies      
Speaking as someone who turned their 5 year side project into a full time startup, I whole heartedly disagree with point 1 - split testing is likely to be a waste of your time.

Unless you have a tonne of traffic, and let's face it, side projects tend not to, A/B testing simply doesn't work. I've tried it a few times with BugMuncher, but the results take 3 - 4months, and are usually inconclusive. I've spoken to other people in similar situations and they've found the same thing. For reference, BugMuncher is lucky to see 3,000 uniques a month :)

I believe A/B testing is a good idea when you have the traffic for it, and I'd love to be able to make use of it, but unless your side project is getting 10s of thousands of unique views each month, there's much better things to spend your limited time on.

I have some projects that fit the use case very well, but I personally hate receiving them. I know that I am not the target audience of my app and that familiarity with a product and just having the name show up over and over makes the product easier to recognize.

Side projects tend to not have the traffic for this. If in doubt, use a calculator to calculate how long it would take to statistically detect a given uplift.

Instead, user-test everything. User-tests give feedback that's rich, nuanced, instant, qualitative and granular. And each one needn't take more than five minutes.

Beyond split testing, it's a good idea to collect usage metrics for everything your users do on the site. At a bare minimum, you can send event data to something like Google Analytics and sift through it by hand to look for patterns.

Ideally though, you should be associating that data back to userids and bucketing it by whether or not that particular user converted to paid or let his trial expire. That way you can collect statistics on what things make your users happy so that you can know what sort of features to add in the future, and so that you can gently steer wayward users toward doing things that you know will tend to bump their chances of converting.

I've been writing a bit about this lately. Here's a better thought out explanation of the above:

Annual Licensing - Don't give updates away unless it is a bug fix.

I strongly disagree with this point. Patching in bug/security fixes to different versions of a product is several orders of magnitude more work than just having everyone on the latest, most secure and most patched version. For a side project to be successful you want to spend as as little energy on admin as possible and much energy on the project as you can.

Have one version. Differentiate between tiers by using feature flags so everyone is on the same codebase. Make development easy and design things so there's as little admin work as you possibly can.

Regarding onboarding I think one thing you can do is be smarter about the trial period. I will often signup for things and not get around to properly trailing before the trial period runs out.

No doubt if I email you you will give extra trial period, this could be done automatically though with an accompanying follow up email to reengage. As you would be tracking usage metrics anyway there would be plenty of data to decide if I have properly trialed the full capability of the software or not.

> First and foremost, always, always, always, split test EVERYTHING.Well most side projects I think have very little traffic / customers, due to most side projects being done by developers (not marketers) and these developers having little time to work on them. It's a bit of a waste of time to AB test a project when you don't have enough traffic / user activity to generate meaningful results.

While this is true, it's worth acknowledging that this comes with some risk. If the current version is doing reasonably well, you could potentially miss out on a lot of conversions by replacing it with an untested version.

So the core idea is: When doing a job for a customer, use that time to resell other people's stuff with an increased price and don't tell the customer about you taking a cut. Sounds shady!

Why not make money on the side by providing additional values? E.g. if you write a plugin that enables the customer to deliver his service, don't charge a fixed price but a yearly license fee, including updates to the software and the ability to write you an email if a question occurs.

In the end being honest is always paying off more in the long run. If you do shady stuff like that it will work in the short run, but will cost you customers who just find other developers.

The Myth of RAM (2014) ilikebigbits.com

reikonomusha 4 ago 2 replies      
I think there's some good info in this article covered by various degrees of misinformation. For some reason, the article starts off with this totally wrong definition of big-O, and proceeds to make conclusions with this wrong definition. Let me provide the accurate definition:

The statement "f is O(g)" means there exists some input, call it t, such that for every x >= t, it only takes some constant multiplier M (i.e., constant in x) to always have g absolutely no smaller than f. In notation:

|f(x)| <= M * |g(x)|, where x is at least t.

This bit about "x is at least t" is very important and notifies us that this is "asymptotic behavior".

It does not make a difference how wacky or weird f is compared to g below t. It can contain all these crazy memory hierarchy artifacts, it could contain a short burst of exponential slowdown, it could contain anything.

Furthermore, according to the above definition, big-O has nothing to do with any tangible quantity whatsoever. It's a method for comparing functions. The functions may represent whatever is of tangible or intangible interest: memory, time, money, instructions, ...

Big-O analysis usually posits that the details below t aren't the details that matter. (Of course, there are situations where they do, but in such you would not use big-O.) If you want to have some analysis that is global, you don't need asymptotic analysis (though it might help as a start). You can just talk about functions that are strictly greater than or less than your function of interest everywhere. But these analyses are difficult because a much higher level of understanding of your function of interest is required.

It so happens that a large part of my PhD was on this very subject. The result I've got N log(N), this is more visible when you get to larger RAM (I had 0,5 TB RAM at the time).We have an empirical result, a justification and a rigorous predictive model.

The reason has to do with hashing, but a different type: TLB.

aaronbwebber 4 ago 10 replies      
The problem with this analysis is that in the graph in the very first part he shows that memory access IS O(1) for pretty substantial scaling factors, and then when you hit some limit(e.g. size of cache, size of RAM) access times increase very rapidly. Sure, if you draw a line across 6 orders of magnitude, it ends up looking like O(n^1/2), but how often do you scale something through 6 orders of magnitude?

The "memory access is O(1)" approximation is pretty good, certainly good enough for almost all every day use. The median size of a hash table I allocate definitely fits in L1 cache, so why shouldn't I think of it as O(1)? If you are reading off of disk, the O(1) approximation holds as long as your dataset stays between 1 MB and 1 GB. That's quite a bit of room to play around in.

Yes, you need to be aware of access times and the changes in them if you are really scaling something way up. But I'm not convinced that I shouldn't just keep thinking of "hash access is O(1)" as a convenient, generally accurate shortcut.

ChuckMcM 4 ago 6 replies      
Since it is a topic I'm interested in I took the time to read all 4 parts, the author manages to summarize it in a paragraph which would have been helpful at the beginning:

When somebody says Iterating through a linked list is a O(N) operation what they mean to say is The number of instructions needed to be executed grows linearly with the size of the list.. That is a correct statement. The argument Im trying to make is that it would be a mistake to also assume that the amount of time needed would grow linearly with the size of the list as well. This is an important distinction. If you only care about the number of instructions executed thats fine, you can use Big-O for that! If you care about the time taken, thats fine too, and you can use Big-O for that too!

Sadly, he doesn't take this knowledge to its conclusion. Let's introduce the notation Oi() for the Big-O notation in instructions, and Ot() for the Big-O notation for time.

Lemma: For all f(N), if Oi(f(N)) > Oi(g(N)), Ot(f(N) will be > Ot(g(N)).

Or put another way, it's important not to confuse complexity scaling with time scaling, but the more complex the computation, the longer it will take.

Great series of articles and the lessons are very important to someone writing performance system's programs.

Here is another chart I like you show people:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4893/mem_lat3.jpg

This is a circular linked list walk where the elements of the list are in order in memory. So in C the list walk looks like this: while (1) p = *p;

Then the time per access was measured as the total length of the array was increased and the stride across that array was increased. The linked-list walk prevents out of order processors from getting ahead. (BTW another huge reason why vectors are better than lists)

(This is from an old processor that didn't have a memory prefetcher with stride detection in the memory controller. A modern x86 will magically go fast.)

From that chart you can read, L1 size, L2 size, cache line size, cache associativly, page size, TLB size. (It also exposed an internal port scheduling bug on the L2. A 16-byte stride should have been faster than a 32-byte stride.)

Math is pure and not constrained by the real world. Big O analysis begins with the assumption that you have unlimited uniform memory. The author points out that memory is not uniform in the real world. It's equally untrue that we have infinite memory at our disposal. The limits of the real world are good to remember but that does not invalidate Big O analysis.

A lot of people are pointing out that BigO is a purely theoretical, mathematical model that should be understood and used properly without regard to silly details like physics.

That is theoretically correct. But, the difference between theory and practice is that in practice there exists a large percentage of programmers writing code for the real world without understanding and using BigO properly. Their mental model of performance begins and ends with BigO. As far as they are aware, its model is reality.

Source: I've been giving a large number of programmer job interviews lately. It's a rare day when I encounter an engineer (even a senior one) who is aware of any of the issues brought up in this series. And, I work in games!

The article is still wrong - iterating through a linked list is O(N log(N) sqrt(N)). You can't have infinite nodes in a 16-bit, 32-bit, or even a 64-bit address space - to deal truly with N, one must consider the more generic case of a variable address encoding, which has a variable size (log(N)) and associated lookup etc. costs as the number of nodes grows.

This is the motivation behind e.g. the "x32 ABI" in Linux: All the power of x86-64 instructions, with none of the additional cache pressure/overhead of 64-bit pointers - log(32) being cheaper than log(64).

...ahh, being this explicit in your Big-O notation is probably not that useful, usually, although I've seen it occasionally in papers (where they're quite explicit about also counting the number of bits involved). Maybe they're dealing with BigNum s, which would make it a practical concern? The key takeaway is this:

> That I use Big O to analyze time and not operations is important.

Time depends on compiler settings, allocation strategy, and a whole host of other factors that are outside the purview of your algorithm. Operations is a lot easier to contrast and compare between different algorithms, the meat of what you're trying to do most of the time. Both are valid choices, just know which one you're dealing with.

The time factors are good to be aware of, to be sure - the performance pitfalls of (potentially) highly fragmented, hard-to-prefetch linked lists over unfragmented flat arrays should be well known to anyone charged with optimizing code - but it's probably easier to think of them as some nebulous large time constant (as even array iteration is going to hit the same worse-than-O(N) behavior, although with proper prefetching the bottleneck may become memory bandwidth rather than memory latency) and deal with those differences with profiling and other measurements, instead of Big-O notation.

I guess the author is trying to simplify, but its way more complex than that. Simply assuming a few layers of cache completely misses all the other layers that have effects starting with.

Cache lines, RAM Read vs write turnaround, dram pages, number of open dram pages, other CPU's interfering with the same RAM channel, remote NUMA nodes, and probably some I'm forgetting. All this is very similar to secondary storage access rules (even for SSDs)...

> For the purpose of this series of articles I'll be using the O(f(N)) to mean that f(N) is an upper bound (worst case) of the time it takes to accomplish a task accessing N bytes of memory (or, equivalently, N number of equally sized elements).

That's not really valid; it's not how algorithmic analysis works. The author's conclusion for what is happening and why is correct, but I believe he is confused about how to get there.

Simply, when doing complexity analysis on an algorithm, one must always count an operation. It's not okay to point to the time taken for an implementation and say "That's our function." It is a function, but it's a function of time, not a count of how many operations are performed at given sizes of N.

However, he is correct that naive analysis of arrays and linked lists will result in this odd behavior: arrays will tend to outperform lists on real systems. The problem with the naive analysis is in what it counts. For example, on an insert, a naive analysis will count the number of elements accessed in the structure. That's naive because it assume all accesses are the same - which is what he's getting at with the "myth of RAM". Because of the memory hierarchy, they are not all equal.

But the correct response is not to give up counting operations and look at time, the correct response is to find the right thing to count. And the right thing to count is basically going to be last level cache misses - the operations that force one to go to memory. If you do that, then you will find that the operations you are counting will correlate much better to the actual time spent.

In some places, the author gets this mostly correct: "You can also use Big-O to analyze the time it takes to access a piece of memory as a function of the amount of memory you are regularly accessing." That's fine, as you're counting memory accesses.

In other places, it's not correct: "That I use Big O to analyze time and not operations is important." You can't count time, only operations. You want to count the operations that correlate with your actual running time, but the entire point of good analysis is to find those operations. You can't just shortcut it, only measure time, and then call it algorithmic analysis.

The author gets a lot right, but despite the lengthy discussion, I think he still has some confusions about algorithm complexity analysis.

For the record, these lessons should be familiar to anyone who has done serious performance analysis of computer systems, either on their own, or in the context of a course that focused on systems or architecture.

It's amazing how many people didn't actually read all 4 parts of the article.

His argument has nothing to do with caching or prefetching, etc.

First, it's about random access. You can't prefetch a random fetch!

Second, he's measuring time, a perfectly valid thing to do. And the reality is when you lay your memory cells out in 2 dimensions it takes order of sqrt(n) time to fetch a random memory cell value, where n is the number of memory cells you're using.

Third, it turns out order of sqrt(n) time is the best you can do even if you had the best technology in the universe.

The article is conflating theoretical algorithm analysis and low level implementation details.

Big O analysis is a theoretical measurement of algorithm performance. By definition it ignores details like memory access speed, the exact instructions used, and other details of specific hardware architectures.

Real life algorithm implementations obviously need to deal with those low level implementation details, but that doesn't change the theoretical analysis. It's easy enough to find (or design) machines without cache where this difference in memory speed doesn't exist.

falcolas 4 ago 2 replies      
I'm not sure the cost of accessing the storage medium belongs in the complexity of the algorithm, since that cost will change based on the storage medium, not the algorithm itself. It strikes me as more of a constant, (even though it isn't constant).

jimminy 4 ago 2 replies      
I find this really odd, it's not wrong, but it doesn't invalidate O(1). It's mashing two-things together that are unneccessary and can cause misunderstanding.

Big-O provides a decent tool for generic analysis and an understanding of access times of memory hierarchies. Since memory hierarchies can vary, they shouldn't be considered while doing generic analysis, much anyways.

Both are important to understand. The key thing is setting your Big-O access expectations to the slowest level of your heirarchy. In that way, your expectation remains generic and still proximally accurate across the average cases.

When you consider them together, think of the heirarchy as a series of piecewise functions that modify the value of the constant time based on the speed of the bounds that fit your data.

This square of N notation falls apart in other cases. 128GB's of RAM would have roughly the same access speed as the 8GB's he had available, if he had that much in his system. But having 128GB of RAM would completely destroy the squaring by flattening an entire magnitude from his hypothesis.

But it is a nice display of memory heirarchies, IMO.

hacknat 4 ago 2 replies      
Nah. Sorry cache-misses don't count as part of a theoretical analysis on complexity. Why? Because you're getting into specific access pattern performance. Complexity is about "all things being equal". Is it the only thing you should consider? At first it should be, then if you run into a problem with a specific structure that has remarkable scale or access then go ahead and consider what the underlying hardware might be doing with the specific access patterns your structure is encountering.

It's interesting to see linked-list as his example, because it is the most likely to have cache-misses as you move through it as the allocations are very fragmented. I'd be very curious to see the same chart on a warmed-up hash-table.

Also, if we're considering the hardware, can we take into account pre-fetching and branch prediction? What are your numbers then? Yeah RAM is farther out then the local caches, but the CPU is also not completely ignorant of what it has to do next.

Closely related but unfamiliar to most software geeks, Bldy's work in the 1960s and later on the theoretical limits of operation throughput when using cache hierarchies is very relevant to high-performance software design. The theory generalizes nicely to any topology where you can control how access latencies are distributed, and carefully designed software can get relatively close to the throughput limits (though it is somewhat incompatible with the way most software engineers design systems these days e.g. multithreaded concurrency is a non-starter).

> At this point some of you may argue that the whole idea of Big-O analysis is to abstract architectural details such as memory latency. This is correct - but I argue that O(1) is the wrong abstraction.

No, your model is wrong. Others have already pointed out some issues with the author's understanding of Big-O notation. However, this is a fundamental misunderstanding. Big-O is a tool to analyse some function's asymptotic behaviour, i.e., how it behaves when the input parameter grows versus infinity. You have to put your model of cost into that function. If your measure is time, and memory access doesn't take constant time in your model, then you have to account for that in your cost function. You can just as well use Big-O notation to describe the asymptotic space complexity of an algorithm (how much memory does it need?). O(1) has no special meaning - it's just the set of all unary functions whose value stays below a constant, no matter how large their input parameter gets.

The author is literally blaming his tools for his own misunderstandings.

Thanks to the prefetcher a low-entropy access to memory, like reading the next value in an array, will tend to happen in constant time. For a linked list, tree, or other data structure where the location of the next access can't be predicted easily by something like stride analysis then the author is correct.
tailrecursion 4 ago 0 replies      
The author argues that a random access to memory is not O(1) but instead O(root N) because of distance.

The easy reactive response is that with respect to algorithm design the size of RAM, N, is a constant.

On the other hand for very high scaling factors, as input size rises the size of RAM must also rise. In this way N can be thought of as a variable and that seems to be what the author is thinking. Different algorithms will behave differently as they are scaled to infinity and beyond.

I think the author's argument is interesting but maybe it's better to make new models for time complexity analysis. I think Bob Harper's students have done good work on this.

In addition to distance there is also the cost of selection, namely the muxes and decoders, which would multiply the cost of access by log N.

truantbuick 4 ago 0 replies      
What the graph really seems to indicate is that time is only linear when working within a cache size on the author's computer (remember that iterating a linked list accounts for the gradual increase in between the cache jumps). If the theoretical upper bound of RAM access was really the important factor at this scale, I wouldn't expect it to be almost flat and to suddenly jerk up every time we have to go to the next cache.

Assuming the author's O(sqrt(n)) is correct, it seems only relevant on much, much larger scales.

In light of that, it really doesn't make sense to pollute the typical use of Big O notation. It should always be understood to be just one metric to understand an algorithm.

justAlittleCom 4 ago 7 replies      
I am sorry... but no, the article is interesting and well written, but it has nothing to do with big O notation.Random access in memory is still in O(1), it doesn't depend on the size of the data structure (I am assuming that is the "n" the author talk about by pretending that a memory access is O(sqrt(n)).Even if you have a very complex memory architecture with 15 caching levels, spread all over the world, if you have a maximum of 5 day delay for accessing your memory through the mail, it will still be O(1), because 5 day is constant, it does not depend on the size of the data structure.

The "n" the author is really talking about may be the depth of the cache hierarchy.

I think this way of looking at the problem is misleading. O(1) or O(N) always stays O(1) or O(N), just the constant changes. You can always access any element in RAM (on a SSD, HDD) in a bounded amount of time. Use that pessimistic time as the time of one step.

Viewed in this way, O(N) is still O(N), and a processor with caches is a magic device that somehow computes faster than O(N)... or for O(1) computes in sub-constant time (if that can be even well-defined).

And that's IMHO exactly where the original author erred. But i find his musings so incredibly funny and enlightening, that i will use them as a future reference of how NOT to do an analysis.

He didn't just do an apple vs oranges comparison, but he essentially threw eggs, potatoes and ham in the mix and tried to deduce an universal law from his concoction by sprinkling some quantum mechanics fairy dust into the mix! Hilarious!

Just by simply looking at his sloppy graph (Typical origin-shenanigans are often a dead give away for the quality of an examination.) one should be able to recognize the form of an underlying step function, as expected from a multi-layered memory system (L1,L2,L3,RAM, ...) .

But NO, he envisions a Square-Root function, just by arbitrarly placing a line in a logarithmic coordinate system. WTF?! Where is the fitting? And how does he defend his conclusion? drum-roll QUANTUM MECHANICS .... Muhahahaha! Great show!

So essentially it's not cost that prohibits our brave engineers of increasing L1 cache size ad infinitum, but because of quantum mechanics! Muhahahaha! Stop it, my stomach hurts.....

faragon 4 ago 1 reply      
If I understood it correctly, the author links cache miss from memory subsystem hierarchy to asymptotic complexity (big O), so if an operation for fixing a cache miss takes higher time complexity, he takes that instead of O(1).

Similar happens when you write an O(1) algorithm while relying on malloc(), which is usually O(n log n), thus your algorithm is not really O(1), but O(n log n).

greggyb 4 ago 1 reply      
I think there is a key point in the FAQ (article four, all linked through the series):

> You are conflating Big-O with memory hierarchies

> No, Im applying Big-O to memory hierarchies. Big-O is a tool, and I am applying it to analyze the latency of memory accesses based on the amount of memory you are using.

As some others have pointed out, the line is crossing hierarchies of cache, and that he is not looking at the big O of instructions. Both of these are accurate, and the author is aware of this.

He is using the tool of big O analysis to measure a performance characteristic. That characteristic is not the traditional number of instructions or amount of memory utilized in the computation of an algorithm. It is the latency for access to a random piece of data stored on a system.

There are two cases considered, the practical, and the theoretical.

At the practical level, we do not have a unified physical implementation of the address space in a modern computer. This means that accessing a random address in memory is an action that will most likely cross levels of the cache hierarchy. It is well known that there are order of magnitude jumps crossing these levels. Perhaps it is uninteresting to you, and the importance of cache locality in an algorithm is something that you already have a very strong handle on. That makes his observation of time-to-access a random address trivial, but not wrong.

Big O tells us that a binary search is the most efficient search algorithm for an array (constraint - the array must be sorted), but in practice a linear search with a sentinel value across an unsorted array will be faster if the array fits in cache. Keeping in mind the big O latency of random memory access across cache hierarchy levels would be the theoretical analysis to tell us this. The traditional big O looks at number of instructions. These are both valid tools in choosing an optimal algorithm.

The second point the author makes is the theoretical limit. Assume the ideal storage medium with minimum access latency and maximum information density. This storage medium is matter. The limit of packing is the point at which you would create a black hole.

With this ideal storage medium, you cannot pack an infinite amount of data within a distance that can be traversed at the speed of light within one clock cycle. For this colossal storage array, there are some addresses which cannot be physically reached by a signal moving at the speed of light within the amount of time that a single clock cycle (or single instruction) takes. Accessing a random address is not a constant time operation, though the instruction can be dispatched in a constant time. There is a variable time for the result of that instruction to return to the processor.

At this theoretical limit, we would still end up with a cache hierarchy, though it would be 100% logical. With a single storage medium and unified address space, the cache hierarchy would be determined by physical distance from CPU to physical memory location. Those storage cells (whatever form they take) that can be round-tripped by a speed of light signal in one clock cycle are the first level of cache, and so on. You could have very granular, number-of-clock-cycles cache levels stepping by one at each concentric layer of the sphere, or you could bucket the number of clock cycles. Either would effectively act as a cache.

This theoretical exercise is an extreme limit, but bears out the practical implications that our current physical implementations of cache hierarchy exhibits in practice.

Again, perhaps these observations are trivial, but I believe they do stand up to scrutiny. The key insight is that the performance characteristic being described by big O is time, not the more traditional space or number of instructions.

I think time is a valuable metric in terms of algorithm selection. If we think about end users - they don't care that one instruction or 1,000,000,000 are being executed. They care about how quickly work is done for them by the computer. Instruction-based analysis can be a huge help in this consideration, but so can time-based analysis.

Neither should be ignored, and neither invalidates the other.

whack 4 ago 0 replies      
It's a very interesting experiment/conclusion, but it rests upon one assumption: The assumption that the entire dataset has been preloaded into the L1/L2/L3 caches.

This assumption is a shaky one to make, and is easily violated. Imagine if you have a hashmap that is small enough to fit entirely in L3 cache. However, most of it has been evicted from the L1/L2 caches, by other data that the core has been reading/writing to as well. Eventually, the thread returns to the hashmap and performs a single lookup on it. In this scenario, the time required will indeed be O(1).

So what you really have is a best-case-complexity of O(sqrt(N)), if your data has been preloaded in the closest possible caches, and a worst-case-complexity of O(1) if your data is stuck in an outer level cache/DRAM. Given that we usually care more about the worst-case-scenarios, not the best-case-scenario, using the O(1) time complexity seems like a reasonable choice.

Going back to the author's premise that the time-complexity of a single memory access is O(sqrt(N)), not O(1), this is true only where N represents all/most of the dataset being processed. If N represents only a small fraction of the dataset being processed, and your caches are going to be mostly filled with other unrelated data, then the time complexity is closer to O(1).

Clearly the O(sqrt(N)) is more accurate than O(1) under some circumstances, but even so, it's not clear what benefit this accuracy confers. All models are inaccurate simplifications of reality, but simple-inaccurate models can still be useful if they can help in decision-making. Big-O analysis isn't used to estimate the practical running-time of an application. For that, you'd be better off just running the thing. Big-O analysis is more used to compare and decide between different competing algorithms/data-structures. And in that sense, whether you choose to model linked-lists/binary-search/hash-maps as O(Nsqrt(N))/O(log(N)sqrt(N))/O(sqrt(N)), or O(N)/O(logN)/O(1), the recommendation you end up with is the same.

If you instead iterate through an array of size K you will only pay O(N + K) since it's only the first memory access that's random. Re-iterating over it will cost O(K). This teaches us an even more important lesson: If you plan to iterate through it, use an array.

This is rubbish. Re-iterating it is the same as iterating it the first time: if you array doesn't fit into cache, you're going to pay for pulling it from further out into the memory hierarchy.

To anyone who doubts me: try it. Try iterating an array that fits entirely in L1 many times, then do the same with an array that has to be pushed out to swap. The slowdown will be considerably worse than linear.

The library example is a bad one, since it leads to O(N) and not O(N), a conclusion that contradicts the thesis.

"In general, the amount of books N that fits in a library is proportional to the square of the radius r of the library, and we write N r."

No, the number of books N is proportional to the area of the front face of the shelving, not the area enclosed within the circle. Assuming all libraries are the same height, that means N is proportional to the circumference of the circle, which is proportional to r, not r. Meanwhile, assuming that all books are reachable in the same amount of time by the librarian no matter their height on the shelf, that means T r (as before). Since T r and N r, that means T N or T=O(N).

The theoretical discussion is interesting, especially the circular library that gives some intuition of the square root law.

Something that the author seems to be missing is that traditional complexity analysis (with mathematical proofs etc) is done for Turing Machines which have one-dimensional memory (an abstract tape), and reachable memory is linear with time.

It all depends on what kind of machine you are talking about...

WalmartLabs | Portland, Oregon | iOS Engineer | Onsite - Relocation Expenses Provided | $100k-160k + bonus + stock

I'm an architect at WalmartLabs and am looking for a few good iOS engineers to help us build our iPhone app. If working at scale in a small, startup-like environment gets you out of bed in the morning, you'll probably enjoy this gig - we're one of the most downloaded apps of all time, and we serve tens of millions of users a month.

We have a nice office in the heart of downtown Portland, and serve up the usual Silicon Valley style benefits: flexible hours, four weeks of PTO plus holidays, 401k, health care, free drinks and snacks, etc. Salary is highly competitive with Bay Area salaries, and you'll get to live in Portland, which has considerably lower overhead. If you're a good fit, we'll make it work for you.

David | San Francisco, CA | https://www.senddavid.com | Fulltime | OnsiteDavid is a San Francisco-based software startup that combines technology and legal research to help customers resolve disputes with their cable, internet, or wireless service provider.

The $200+ billion legal industry is still stuck in the 20th century: paper-based, error-prone and slow. With rates averaging $300 / hour, only 15% of Americans with serious legal problems even seek the help of a lawyer. For everyday issues like bogus cable bills, fewer than 1 in 1,000,000 of us seek justice, even though monopolists like Comcast rank in the 0th percentile for customer satisfaction. Class actions used to provide the necessary scale to combat certain widespread frauds, but over the past 5 years, the Supreme Court has allowed businesses to eliminate them.

The technical challenges are hard, ranging from automating the monitoring of corporate misconduct to crafting delightful user flows to building the leading database of outcomes in consumer disputes. In parallel with the software development, a team of Yale Law School alums conducts the deep research so that our users finally feel empowered, rather than intimidated, by the law.

We currently have a MVP (https://www.senddavid.com) and are looking for a Senior Engineer as a very early member of the team.

Credit Karma | San Francisco | Full Time, Onsite

Credit Karma's mission is to make financial progress possible for everyone. We have over 60 million US members and are a true mission-oriented business, a rare case where our incentives are aligned with our users - we succeed by helping our members attain financial progress.

We've been growing rapidly over the past few years (hypergrowth) and are hiring across a wide range of positions. On the backend side, we are moving to Scala-based microservices using finagle and Thrift, and as well as GraphQL on node.js. Our native iOS and Android apps are #1 in finance (with a 5 star rating on the App Store) and we're rebuilding our website in React + Redux. Our data science team uses Kafka, Spark and BigQuery among other technologies.

If you're motivated by growth and impact Credit Karma is probably the best place to work in tech today. We have solved product / market fit and distribution, but compared to our peer unicorns there is still so much work to do. If you look at the gap between our product today and what we are well-positioned to become - the main touchpoint for consumer finance - there is tons of opportunity for people joining now to take on responsibility and ownership and have a meaningful impact.

* Banking and payments: We write code that moves money

* Product engineering: We help our customers by hiding the boring parts of money management

* Financial crime: We need to stay ahead of criminals trying to steal data and money

* Internal tooling: We automate everything so the rest of the team can work smarter

Our backend architecture is composed of hundreds of distributed Go microservices running in the cloud. They are managed by Kubernetes, store data in Cassandra, do RPC with linkerd/Finagle, and use Kafka for asynchronous queueing.

TalkJS | Eindhoven, the Netherlands | ONSITE

We're building a fantastic messaging experience for marketplace sites. Our product is targeted at developers and built on the newest web tech (such as React, ES6, Elixir). Our tech challenges include great API design for our customer's developers, a scalable real-time messaging backend, fantastic design and UX, and most of all writing great code fast with a tiny team.

We're looking for experienced programmers in the Eindhoven region (office at a 5 minute walk from the train station). Unlike many startups we're not ageist and we have sane European working hours. We're a small team and you'll have significant impact on all aspects of the product.

We're particularly interested in experienced people who're on the verge of being promoted into some middle management / "architect" role, but prefer to actually build great software with great programmers and move 4x faster, sustainably, than the average dev team. All that said, if that's not you but you'd like to get there fast, get in touch as well.

We're changing the way the world thinks about education, one child at a time. Our first product, the Starling, is a fitbit for word tracking.

What will you learn on this job?

You'll have the opportunity to see everything from general web scaling, to big data initiatives, to automated development operations.

Full Stack Engineer (Node.js/React/your preference)

Schibsted Media Group | Engineering Productivity Engineer | Full-time | Barcelona | ONSITE

Schibsted is a 175+ year old company which started in the publishing business, moved pretty well into the online world and spawned some other companies in other industries (like online classifieds). Quite a few online classified sites in Europe belong to Schibsted and it is usually the leader in the market. Sites like LeBonCoin.fr (.fr), WillHaben (.at), Finn (.no), Blocket (.se) (and a bunch more) are part of the group.

The different companies in the group have been operating quite independently of each other, something that we are changing now. One of the key efforts for accomplishing this is the Engineering Productivity team, based in Barcelona, which will help standardize on automation, testing, code quality assessment tools, build systems, ... Let the machines do what they are best at and let the engineers work on solving hard problems.

So, if things like full automation, static code analysis, code review bots, testing frameworks, CI/CD, crazy git hooks tick something in your head, get in touch. We are now starting to staff the team.

Interview: 1 phone call w/myself [1 hr], 4 VCs or in person [1 hr each].

Contact: peralta@schibsted.com

(if engprod is not your field of interest, we are still hiring strong software engineers in different locations: BCN, OSL, STO, LDN).

Secure Mission Solutions | Full Time | REMOTE

We are a team of about fourteen developers and sys admins. We are looking to hire an additional software developer with strong Unix/Linux skills and (if possible) a good knowledge of computer security. We work from home and communicate via text and video chat. We work 40-hour weeks with flexible hours, but we try to overlap as much as possible with 10am-4pm Eastern Time. We are currently working on about five different projects, each written in one or more of five different programming languages. These projects are small, ranging from one to three developers each. Nearly everyone works on at least two different projects, so we all need to be competent in more than one language. Some of us started as system administrators and later became software developers. Others are pure developers with solid Unix/Linux skills.

 - Work from home! - Relaxed atmosphere - 40 hour work weeks

Since then, we've been working with the government to improve the services HealthCare.gov provides. Our revamped Healthcare.gov application is used by millions, converts 35% better, and halves the completion time.

It turns out theres a lot more to build, and its surprising how much can be done by a small group of empathetic people with a Silicon Valley mindset, deep technical experience, working closely with dedicated civil servants in government.

$80K - $140k - Special Ops (Coding || Writing || Design || Products || Research || Business || Venture Capital || M&A)

Hiring incredibly smart folks with a no-nonense approach to communicating, creating, and maintaining relationships. This is the fastest way to become an insider in SV / tech.

This is role will put you in front of every kind of project you can imagine. Get on a flight to Southeast Asia to negotiate a contract with high ranking government officials. Code (or hire coders to create) an MVP for 3d printer IDE. Re-design everything about company in 48 hours (logo, name, press kit, marketing message, hiring, etc.) and then see it live on Techcrunch. Diligence a $2M investment. Edit an masterpiece for Forbes. Co-create a new class on corporate venture capital. Jump in to help a team scaling from 100k to 100M users in 4 weeks.

These examples hopefully provide you a sense of the adventure you in for. You'll work on a tiny team of brilliant folks on a range of projects I am involved in. It's important we hit it off: I like no no-nonsense folks who jump in and make everything they touch better. Communicators rule the world, so you better be good at writing and speaking. Your ambitions should include something grand. You think it's worth it to pick up the refreshments and chauffeur a guest to an engagement in order to get 10 minutes with a world famous entrepreneur.

I like people who have done the hard things, failed (or not), and still have the curiosity an enthusiasm to get back up and go full speed ahead. Most importantly, you need to be really really good at something.

Please email my chief of staff keela@fu.team with the following subject line: Apply: Special Ops (SKILLSET) - NAME - REMOTE|TOKYO|SF

We are building data discovery and analytics tools that make it simple for organizations to liberate their own private data, and for the wider community to explore and build upon Enigmas own integrated public data platform. We believe data can reveal tremendous things about the world and that it will continue to transform it in the years and decades to come. After winning TechCrunch Disrupt NYC in '13, we have since grown into a Series B Startup, and we're growing quickly!

If you have experience in building systematic trading systems, or if you're interested in learning, we'd love to hear from you. We do friendly code review for knowledge sharing, and we also support staff in getting qualifications.

We have all the benefits of being an established, successful hedge fund but the developer team is still small enough to do a single standup in the morning. We have the best of both worlds.

Interested? Drop me an email at wilfred.hughes@man.com, and mention HN.

* We're an enterprise software startup (seed stage) that makes it easy for skilled professionals (think construction, insurance, real estate, etc) to use drones everyday in their job through a combination of incredible AI and HRI. We're generating revenue and among our customers, count a Fortune 50 company.* Looking for junior or senior software engineers, and (paid) interns. We're less concerned with your skill set and more about what you would find motivating to work on every day. We do work that spans everything from Drones to AI to Data Viz to IOT.

About Converge:* Started in 2015, our founders were some of the first people to work on drones in the world, worked on the unmanned Blackhawk helicopter, and created the first mobile app ever for flying a drone (way back in 2008 at MIT...)* We like people who have excelled at something outside of work, and are just downright interesting to have a conversation with.* We like diamonds in the rough, but like to keep high expectations for each other.* If you are looking for a keg, ping pong table or bro culture, we're not going to be a good fit for each other. We actually do fly drones for our job, so I guess that's a culture benefit?* Our team is small, we're very deliberate about hiring- you would be in the first 10 employees.

To get started, please go to this page to get ahold of us: http://www.cvg.io/careers/

This includes: client-side AngularJS / JQuery, MVC-based web architecture, external RESTful APIs, distributed (and in our case, highly scaled) request handling services, no-SQL and relational SQL databases, many-layered data pipeline (e.g. data bus architecture, Hadoop / MPP data warehouse, etc.) that moves hundreds of thousands of items per second, and data visualization (e.g. Tableau). Experience in all these layers is not strictly required, but we do like to see experience working in more than one, as well as eagerness to work on projects that might slice through them all.

* You have product-driven software development experience using a modern, object-oriented language. Memory-managed languages are best -- .e.g. C#, Java, Python, Ruby, etc. We do most of our work in C#/.Net, but specific experience here is not required.

Cool stuff about TTD:

* Our platform processes 3.5million+ queries per second

* Work with the best engineering team in adtech

* The combination of huge datasets, high throughput, low latency and amazing scale means that we're constantly solving some of the biggest challenges in computer science.

* We've grown faster than any other adtech company in the industry, and have been recently recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America by Inc. Magazine and Deloitte.

* Amazing Company Culture (We're very proud of our 5.0 rating on Glassdoor)

* Top-tier benefits

SUSE | Nuremberg (DE), Prague (CZ) or REMOTE | Full Time

Linux graphics developer

In the SUSE Labs department, we are looking for an expert on the Linux graphics stack. We are looking for somebody who has experience with the DRM subsystem in the Linux kernel, the internals of the X server or the userspace libraries. Ideally, the candidate should have some knowledge of all of the above and should be able to debug issues in code that he or she has no prior knowledge of. It is also a big plus if the candidate has experience with working with the X.Org or kernel upstream projects.

The job location is ideally Nuremberg, Germany or Prague, Czech Republic, but remote work is also an option.

What we offer

You will take part in development of the core parts of our enterprise and community distributions and you will be encouraged to submit your work upstream. We will sponsor travel to relevant conferences where you can present your work. Working time is flexible and we offer a bunch of the usual benefits (these differ in different countries, though).

How to apply

Preferably, submit all relevant information in a single PDF file, so that no important detail is lost in transit. Give us some time to process your application. Expect the interview to be done over phone, unless you already live in Nuremberg or Prague (let us know in such case). Form submission for this position at https://jobs.suse.com/job/nuremberg/linux-graphics-developer...

JumpCloud | Sr. Software Engineer, Sr. DevOps Engineer | Boulder, Colorado (Greater Denver Area)

ONSITE, REMOTE possible for candidates with a good fit

At JumpCloud, we have a plan. See, theres this company that is ripe for displacement. They put out software that everyone uses but nobody loves. We think we can do it better. Much better. We can make it easy-to-use, more powerful, and massively scalable / highly available by putting it in the cloud. Just like Gmail supplanted Exchange, we want to disrupt (yes, we said it) the Directory server market.

Who are we? Were the scrappy underdog with the backing of serious VCs and the experience of a crack team of founders and engineers with decades of identity and Security experience.

Who are we looking for? Comrades in arms to fight the entrenched opposition. People who want to seriously change Identity and Directory Management. Were funded, were in downtown Boulder, and were making a big difference. Get in here and be a part of it!

Stack: Postgres/Mongo/Redis, NodeJS/Golang, Docker/Saltstack

CRITEO (http://labs.criteo.com/) | Paris | Full-time ONSITE | Mobile Engineer (VISA sponsorship)

Build mobile SDKs present over a billion mobile devices worldwide already and used by the major games and apps publishers on iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms.

Learn and exploit new mobile platforms, adapt to changing requirements and contribute to a product that has grown by a factor of 4 in the last months.

Find the signal hidden in tens of TB of data, in one hour, using over a thousand nodes on our Hadoop cluster. And constantly keep getting better at it while measuring the impact on our business.

Get stuff done. A problem partially solved today is better than a perfect solution next year. Have an idea during the night? Code it in the morning, push it at noon, test it in the afternoon and deploy it the next morning.

High stakes, high rewards: 1% increase in performance may yield millions for the company. But if a single bug goes through, the mobile Internet goes down (were only half joking).

Feel free to drop us a line at r&drecruitment[@]criteo.com =)

Iterable (https://iterable.com) - San Francisco, CA

Come join Iterable. We are 29 people bringing the growth hacking tools that consumer Internet companies like Google/Twitter/Facebook build internally to other large-scale companies. We aim to build the best user growth engine on the planet. It's crazy how messaging and email usage are changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century.

Our team of hackers and thinkers is from quant finance/Twitter/Google/Yahoo/Zynga/Khan Academy/Palantir/CMU/MIT, (we built large parts of Twitter's growth systems). One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here -- are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here. This is an opportunity to join a super-fast growing startup, in a huge market and with a great team, while it's still early.

If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face:

 - Scale our messaging API - Design and write performant, beautiful, asynchronous interfaces - Write software to build machine learned user models - Make data visualizations for our email and user data - Design an immutable deployment infrastructure for our platform
Some aspects of our culture that make us different:

 - We are all very focused on self improvement - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values (work when you want, on what you want) - We are chill and empathetic people - The company is completely transparent
Technologies you'll work with:

 - Scala - Elasticsearch - Postgres - Redis - ES6 - AngularJS - Play Framework - RabbitMQ - AWS
You'll get to work with us at our new office at 3rd & Harrison in San Francisco. If this sounds like an interesting and fun opportunity for you, please email me at aXRzYXVuaXhzeXN0ZW0raG5AaXRlcmFibGUuY29t or take a look at our open positions here: https://iterable.com/company/careers

Mindflash | Palo Alto, CA | Full-Time | Remote or Onsite | US Citizen or Green Card only

We are a small edtech company (~30 people) by El Camino & Page Mill Road in Palo Alto looking to ramp up our engineering team by up to 5 solid mid-level/senior full-stack engineers.

Our company has been around since 1999, and remained small while only having ever raised a seed & Series A round with a single investor. Our product is a learning management system (LMS), which allows our clients to educate their users. It was recently ranked #4 in Fortune's most flexible workplaces[1], and I have the pleasure of saying that this is the best company I have worked at thus far due to the combination of excellent management/executives, and tremendous work-life balance enjoyed by all, as well as ample opportunity to move technology forward. In addition, we have better gender balance at the company than most in the area, including in engineering - we strive to be inclusive, although primarily we just want people who are awesome to work with, including being considerate to others.

We have a smart & burgeoning engineering group that is working on some interesting problems. Our tech stack includes Node.js (v4), Angular 1 & 2, MySQL, Elasticsearch, & Jenkins, as well as Selenium with Java 8 on the QA automation side. There is a lot of opportunity across the stack to touch many different areas to make improvements. We are open to trying different technologies as well, and have a culture of writing tests for our code. We strike a great balance of keeping product quality high while creating the ability to address technical debt, and get raving reviews from our clients for ease of use.

We are willing to relocate able candidates, or allow working remote if the candidate is willing to work roughly standard Pacific time working hours (9 am - 5 pm PT).

Our interview process generally involves no whiteboarding or live coding, and instead focuses on experience & ability to design software while working on a team.

Please contact me at wesley.cho(at)mindflash.com if interested in more details - no recruiters please, I will not respond.

Octopus Energy | London, UK | On-site | Full-time

We are a tech-focussed energy supplier for the UK market and we're looking for diligent software engineers (especially with Python experience) to join us.

We're building a modern, event-driven infrastructure for interacting with both consumers (via the web, mobile and smart-meters) and the industry (eg data flows, consumption forecasting, trading on the wholesale market).

On the server-side, we mainly use Python. Our public site is powered by Django and the Django-REST-framework - we also use Pandas, Numpy and Jupyter for analysis and forecasting.

We use AWS heavily, employing most of the "Hashistack" (eg Packer, Consul, Terraform, Atlas) as part of a continuous deployment pipeline. See, for example, http://tech.octopus.energy/2016/05/05/django-elb-health-chec...

Client-side, we use React and SASS; our mobile apps are built using React Native.

Engineering standards are high. All code is well tested and thoroughly reviewed.

This is a great opportunity for several reasons:

* We have lots of difficult design challenges to solve. The UK energy market is complicated, dated and process-heavy - there's an awful lot of domain modelling that we need to get right.

* We have difficult technical problems to solve. With the advent of smart meters, we'll soon be processing millions of meter readings a day. We need the right technology in place to handle this smoothly as well as feeding data into a machine learning pipeline that models and predicts consumption.

* There's a great opportunity for disruption in the UK energy market. The big suppliers still dominate, but are not exactly popular. The energy landscape is changing as we move to more disaggregated forms of generation, with less predictability, more dynamism and smarter technology.

* You'll be working for a company that is helping to tackle climate change. We'll be helping move people onto using greener technology and consuming energy from renewable sources. This will all help transition the UK towards a lower carbon future.

Interview Process: We just want to talk shop!

Looking to switch into Security?

We talk to quite a few candidates that are looking into a career in infosec and it makes us happy to see the growing interest in the field.

(Hint: Not one of those multiple choice exams! Check out the OSCP or WAPTX) Learning opportunities in penetration testing have never been more accessible, with plenty of sites offering courses for free. While penetration testing is a continuous learning experience with new attacks and techniques coming out daily, we look for candidates that have taken steps to start learning on their own.

Bending Spoons is a fast-growing tech company focused on building and marketing mobile applications. We think, create, and market our own apps. We're young (3 years of activity, average age 27 years old), but we've achieved explosive growth: the apps that we've invented, developed, and published have been downloaded more than 40 million times, and millions of people use them every week. We are currently looking for a QA Tester and for exceptional Software Engineers to join our team of backend and iOS engineers. Our backend stack consists for the most part of Python, node.js, MongoDB, and Redis. Our iOS work is every bit as extensive and challenging as the backend one, if not more.

Astranis (YC W16) | San Francisco, CA | Full-Time | Onsite | US Citizen or Green Card

Were building small, low-cost telecommunications satellites. Our mission is to help bring the 4 billion people online who are without internet. And to pull it off we have to reinvent 30 GHz radios in space using SDRs.

Work with incredibly smart people who have flown things in space before. Well-funded, but still a very small team that moves fast. No prior space experience needed, you just need to enjoy getting your hands dirty with real hardware and be ok with struggling to do things that seem impossibly hard.

Roles were hiring for include:

* Embedded software -- write mission critical software that runs the spacecraft. Should have experience with microcontroller driver-level code and basic PCB design.

* Electrical -- PCB design, layout, bringup, test. Bonus: experience with fault-tolerant electronics, power systems, or high speed digital design

* Mechanical -- design, build, and test deployables and mechanisms. Should be experienced in stress and thermal analysis

* Aerospace/controls -- implement solutions to 6 DOF, non-linear control problems. Experience with spacecraft controls is a plus but not required.

* RF/Microwave -- work across a broad range including microwave system-level design, design of LNA's and SSPA's, RF PCB design, and antenna design, simulation, and characterization.

* DSP/FPGA -- program FPGA hardware, develop custom DSP IP cores and integrate off-the-shelf IP cores

Please email john@astranis.com if youre interested in learning more.

Sonar | San Francisco, CA | Multiple roles | Onsite | https://www.sendsonar.com/

Sonar helps companies communicate with their customers on mobile messaging channels such as SMS, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and WeChat. By using text messaging channels rather than legacy channels such as email and phone calls, companies are able to be more efficient and effective while providing a superior customer experience. Imagine you could text Comcast/AT&T to ask questions to a real person instead of being on hold for 45 minutes or sending a support email into a black whole.

Sonar is a seed stage company (plenty of runway), growing quickly, with awesome paying customers ranging from startups to public companies. We have an engineering culture and a very collaborative environment. We work hard and have a lot of fun along the way. We're a mature, diverse group of people who are all passionate about what we're building.

Our stack is RoR, ReactJS, Heroku/AWS, CircleCi, and Sidekiq (standard rails stack). Some of the interesting problems we're solving are scaling our infrastructure, using AI/Machine Learning to make human agents more powerful, and parsing large amounts of data.

We've raised $1.4m and our investors include 500 Startups, QuestVP, TwilioFund, and some amazing angels.

You can check out our current team and values here: https://www.sendsonar.com/about

Our interview process is: phone screen, in-person coffee to get to know each other, technical interview (2+ hours), and then lunch with the team.

Back-end Engineers:You're a crack-shot in your back-end language of choice. Our system matches users with hundreds of possible opportunities in real-time. Needless to say, we're looking for people who care about performance. A lot. Our back-end systems are written in C#, Java using Redis, Mongo, and SQLServer. You might know C# or Java or you might not, but either way you're willing to learn. Regardless, you can impress us in your language of choice. You understand algorithms matter. You also understand sloppy database access could make that ugly n^2 algorithm look absolutely blazing fast.You love to code. You've built stuff. Stuff you can show us. Stuff you can't wait to show us. You know the right technology implemented the right way matters.We're looking for both Senior and Junior back-end engineers. If you're a Senior Engineer - you've worked in server-side code for a few years. You've scaled to thousands or maybe millions of users.If you're a Junior engineer, you love to code and you're good at it. You're smart, You're passionate, and most of all you can't wait to get started. (New grads please apply!)

Front-end Engineers:You know Javascript. You know the ins, the outs and how to make it blazing fast. You care about performance because you know your users are waiting for every line of your code. You've used some popular frameworks, maybe angular or react - but you know one or more cold.

Where we are:

Charlotte, NC. If you're into great weather and a central location (our airport is an American hub) you should check us out. You can pick great urban living (Uptown's 4th ward is the place to be) or get yourself a huge house (at reasonable prices) in the burbs. The standard of living for an engineer doesn't get any better than this.

Most new ad deals require third party measurement and for many of the top brands and websites, Moat's metrics are the go-to. We were one of the first companies to begin measuring ad viewability and we helped make these metrics a standard in the online ad industry. We handle over 19 billion impressions a day and tackle large scalability problems every day.

2) Search

Moat Search tells you who's advertising where online. We give advertisers, publishers and other adtech companies an overview of the entire online ad ecosystem (kind of like the Bloomberg of the ad world). Our customers can see their competitors' ad campaigns, find prospects by seeing the clients of similar companies or see trends in the industry before anyone else. We have a free product, moat.com and a premium product, Moat Pro.

We recently raised $50M and we're still growing very quickly:http://www.wsj.com/articles/moat-raises-50-million-to-help-d....

The newly launched Olympic Channel (https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/) is seeking business and data analysts to join the Digital Strategy group. We're a small team and wear many hats. While we're actively seeking junior positions (1-3 years of experience), we encourage qualified mid- and senior-level candidates to apply as well. We have a strong preference for local candidates but can help with Visa sponsorship for the right person if needed.

We are looking for:

1. Data Analysts and Engineers: Python, R, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ELK, and Spark, but we're not married to any particular stack. We want you to work in whatever way is most effective. Must be comfortable working with messy, disaggregated data sets and have a strong grasp of ETL and data preparation. Bonus points for D3 and an interest in turning data into something beautiful and engaging.

2. Business Analysts and Strategists: Excel, PowerPoint, Word (and cloud equivalents). Some experience with analytics tools and basic scripting is helpful but not required. This person will help shape the strategy and direction of current and future projects in a way that moves the needle.

Looking ahead to the coming weeks and months, we're also interested in a DBA/Architect, a systems engineer (with some exposure to distributed systems -- technologies we use include Hadoop, HDFS, Avro, Spark, Kafka, and Flume), a project manager, data engineers, scientists, and developers.

Resin.io | REMOTE | Linux engineers, Security engineers, Backend engineers, UI/Front-end engineers, Sales engineers

Resin.io allows IoT developers to push Linux Containers to embedded devices. See our demo of updating a drone in-flight at DockerCon [1]. We're very emphatic about our remote culture [2].

The resin.io team is composed of people passionate about quality code, well-thought out architecture, and great user experience. Etcher.io, a tool we recently released, is a good example of all those things. Most of our code is node.js though we're transitioning some parts of the stack to Go.

Some details on the individual roles:

Linux engineers - We're building a minimal OS for embedded devices[3]. Knowledge of Yocto Linux very helpful.

Security engineers - Passionate about building an end-to-end secure code delivery pipeline, from the cloud to the device, all the way down to the bootloader and CPU?

Backend engineers - Resin's backend is composed of ~10 node.js microservices, each with unique challenges.

UI/Front-end engineers - We're passionate about UX, and have a lot of cool features to build. Most of our UI is in AngularJS but knowledge of other frameworks a plus.

Sales engineers - (ideally in the bay area) - End-to-end understanding of resin.io, ability to work with customers to both teach and guide them to use resin.io effectively. You may need to spend time on-site with customers.

Workflow engineers - Looking for full-stack developers passionate about optimising the way a remote team works.

Our interview process is a first call to go through programming competence, as well as a follow up with the corresponding team lead. If any of the above sound exciting, drop us an email at join@resin.io

Beyond Labs | London, UK | Full Time | Front End Developer & Full Stack Engineer

Were looking for a front-end javascript developer to join our London-based team and lead the design of Beyond.

--What we do--

Beyond is an enterprise SaaS platform thats spearheading a new generation of companies - ones that remain agile as they grow. We do this by transforming the way companies plan their numbers - their budgets.

Ultimately, we believe companies do best when employees are empowered to take initiatives, rather than constrained by outdated budgets.

--About the Role - Front End Developer--

For too long, budgeting has meant monstrous spreadsheets or impenetrable business software - unintelligible to all except a few finance professionals. We need you to help us change this.

You will:

- lead the UX/UI development of Beyond, building off the successes (and failures!) of our MVP. Youll optimise and streamline core workflows, helping to find elegant ways for our users to visualise and edit large datasets.

- develop beautiful and engaging interfaces that appeal to the many different people that use Beyond: from front-line employees to managers, finance professionals and accountants.

- just as importantly, help bring personality and lovability to Beyond.

Learn more at http://bebeyond.co/jobs/ or drop me an email: james@bebeyond.co


We're also hiring for a Full Stack JavaScript Engineer, you can find more details at the link above.

Interbay Applications | Tampa, FL | ONSITE 1-2 days/week | Full-time | Front-end web developer

We're a well-funded two year old startup with suitably crazy and cool goals involving geo stuff, VR, photography, 3D stuff, and the importance of real-life "place". You'd be the third full-time developer added to our core team of ~10 people.

Other than you, I'm the newest employee. I've been working here for five months. This is probably the most effective team I've worked with in my 15 year career, and definitely the most fun I've had. I don't mean it's a big party: we're working hard. But if having responsibility for key product components in an environment where you're treated with respect, you have skilled peers to brainstorm and share the work, and you have the design, testing, and business support you need to succeed at your job sounds like fun to you, then you know just what I mean.

Specific skills we're looking for include React and Three.js, but it's most essential that you've had substantial real life experience building JS-powered web apps.

The development team typically meet in our Ybor office 1-2 days/week, so it's pretty important that (1) that's a plausible commute for you and (2) you can work effectively without the buzz of office mates most of the time. We use slack to keep in touch.

Compensation is very competitive, and we have PTO and health insurance reimbursement. Interview process will involve a phone interview with me and the other full-time developer followed by an in-person meeting and a contract project to mutually try each other out if things go well. We can work with your schedule for these steps.

You can reach me at "joshu4@interb4y4pps.com".replace(/4/g,'a').

Clever (YC S12) - San Francisco - onsite

Right now the market for educational software is a mess. Its incredibly difficult for developers to get their products into schools, and its even harder for them to scale. School districts spend tons of money on learning applications, but they have no way of knowing if students are even using the apps theyre purchasing. Teachers know theres great software out there, but relatively simple challenges like getting 30 students logged in at once make using it impossible.

At Clever, were working to change all that. We provide schools with a free API and single sign-on solution that makes using educational apps a breeze. Weve grown fast: after three and a half years, were moving data for a third of all K-12 students in America (20M kids), and 60,000 schools are using us to manage their education apps. Our goals are much bigger than that, though. We want to be two things:

-a single place where schools can easily integrate, manage and analyze all the software theyre using, and

-a single identity that students can use to see everything theyve learned across multiple apps.

Were a team of 115 (40 engineers) based in downtown SF, and were looking for engineers who enjoy working in (or would enjoy learning) Go, Node and React. More generally, we want people who are sharp, adaptable, and passionate about improving the way education works for everyone. In particular, were looking for senior engineers and engineering managers: empathetic leaders who are excited about teaching, coaching and professional development.

Pluto AI | Palo Alto, California | Full Stack Developer | ONSITE


We are looking for a full stack developer with at least 3 years of experience to join our team. This is an opportunity to spearhead the development of our water analytics platform and pioneer the overall architecture.


We are enabling our customers to analyze and understand the real time data coming from connected devices like sensors and smart meters.

Our goal is to develop a Deep Learning platform to prevent the wastage of water, our planet's most essential natural resource. We are looking for somebody who knows how to get things done. If we end up liking each other, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!


A couple of things to note about this role: - Experience with a backend framework like Django - Experience with a frontend framework like AngularJS - Our stack is built using a combination of Python and Javascript, so familiarity with these languages is necessary - Working knowledge of databases (Postgres, MongoDB, Influx)


- We like solving hard problems. You will be working on cutting edge data science problems. - Since you will be one of the first few people in the company, you will have a tremendous impact on our strategy and culture. - Youll have the opportunity to drive the architecture and design of our platform. Since this work is largely self-driven, youll have the opportunity to get really hands-on.

StoryWorth | SF | Full-Time https://www.storyworth.com

Were looking for a full-stack engineer to join us at StoryWorth (www.storyworth.com).

This role is a good fit for you if you want to work on a meaningful consumer product, and if you work best with a lot of responsibility on a small team.

Were a service that helps people record their family stories and print them in beautiful hardcover books. We have raised a seed round, have paying customers who love us, and are on track to be profitable.

Youll be taking over the core engineering of the site, scaling it as we grow and implementing major new features. Because of this, we need someone with significant engineering experience (3-5 years full time work). You should be comfortable Python, Javascript, HTML and CSS. Bonus points if you have mobile experience and an interest in design.

Our development process is very collaborative. We'll wireframe a new feature together, you'll put together an end-to-end prototype, and we'll iterate from that. We care more about clean maintainable code than domain expertise. Our stack includes Python (Tornado), Mongo, Swift, Heroku, Stripe, Twilio & Mailgun.

If you want to apply, email me a short note about why this posting caught your attention and well go from there.

I cant wait to hear from you!


PS: Unfortunately we cant sponsor a visa at this time, but were open to remote candidates if youre a particularly good fit. Also, this role likely isnt right for you if you graduated in the past year or recently completed a hacker school.
