The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and governments within and outside of China are scrambling to minimize the spread of COVID-19. A well-designed disease model can help predict the likely course of an epidemic, and reveal the most promising and realistic strategies for containing it. This article unpacks how the spread of infectious diseases is modeled, and exploring how the WHO and other groups are modeling the COVID-19 epidemic.
Over 100,000 programmers took Triplebyte’s quiz last year. The data below reveals how five multiple-choice questions easily separate the real software engineers from the rest.
Normally, we use our blog to talk about insights we’ve gathered from our giant mountain of interview data. This one’s gonna be a little different. We’ve just launched two big new features: our data science and DevOps tracks. For this post, we thought we’d share a look into our internal process and talk about how we ship a big project like this on a tight schedule – in other words, let’s talk about the glamorous, tumultuous, life-or-death world of project management!
We talked to an array of engineers and hiring managers about what they're looking for when they hire for DevOps roles. We found very little consensus.
I am honored and excited to be in the CEO position at Triplebyte, with so many talented people on the team.
I’m excited to announce that my co-founder and (formerly) COO Ammon, is taking over from me as CEO of Triplebyte. I’ll now be Chairman, supporting the company as a board member and advisor but no longer involved in operations.
Triplebyte is now placing machine learning engineers - here's what to expect from our new interview and what you need to know on your ML job hunt.
Kevin Singleton is now a software engineer at Vanta, a startup that develops a security software package for other tech companies. But until 2017, Kevin was a scholar of Japanese culture pursuing a career in academia; he even attended Harvard to obtain a Master’s in East Asian Studies and earned a Ph.D. in Japanese Literature from Stanford. After following that path for a number of years, he decided that he wanted to chart a different course with his life. Although he had a minor in Computer Science from his undergraduate days and a persistent interest in coding as a hobby, he had no credentials, experience, or contacts in the tech industry to get his foot in the door. On a whim, Kevin decided to take our technical screen—and crushed it. With Triplebyte to vouch for him, he was invited to eleven on-sites and received multiple offers. After he settled into his new role at Vanta—his first ever in the field of software engineering—we caught up with Kevin to talk about his experiences.
We're hiring a Head of Diversity to help us make the technology industry more welcoming to people of different backgrounds.
