Facebook’s web codebase currently contains more than 100 million lines of Hack code, and changes thousands of times per day. To handle the sheer volume of code, we build sophisticated systems that help our security engineers review code. Today, we are sharing the details of one of those tools, called Zoncolan, for the first time. [...]

Developing apps and services that scale to millions or billions of people can present uniquely complex performance challenges. Optimizing infrastructure, scaling web services, and developing fast mobile apps are all part of the job to keep large-scale systems performant. At this year’s event, attendees gathered to hear speakers from Facebook, Google, NVIDIA, and other companies [...]
Operating systems that serve millions (or even billions) of people can present unprecedented, complex engineering challenges. Last year, we launched the Systems @Scale conference to bring together engineers from various companies to discuss those challenges. At this year’s event, attendees gathered to hear speakers from Facebook, LinkedIn, Uber, and other companies discuss innovative solutions for [...]

What’s new: EGG is a new toolkit that allows researchers and developers to quickly create game simulations in which two neural network agents devise their own discrete communication system in order to solve a task together. For example, in one of the implemented games, one agent sees a handwritten digit and has to invent a [...]
