Entertainment Billionaire Developer and Philanthropist Eli Broad Dies: 'He Saw the Potential in Each of Us'
Stack Overflow developers: We didn't always follow coding best practices, and you don't have to either
Best practices can slow your code down. Which is why Stack Overflow's development team decided not to follow them.But that doesn't mean developers always need to stick to them. When building the codebase for Stack Overflow, for instance, engineers Roberta Arcoverde and Ryan Donovan admit that they sometimes sacrificed best practices in favor of speed and performance – and explain that following established rules to the letter aren't always the best choice for all projects.
Billionaire developer and philanthropist Eli Broad has died. He was 87.

Low-code and no-code won't kill developer jobs, here's why
Developers are the Jedis of innovation. Low-code and no-code won't change that, but it will bring more people into the field of software development and help companies be more agile.Will the low-code and no-code movement result in fewer developer jobs? Or, will it actually encourage more people to become developers?

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti also shared a touching.
"Eli Broad, simply put, was L.A.'s most influential private citizen of his generation. He loved this city as deeply as anyone I have ever known. He was a dreamer, often seeing things that others didn't or couldn't. He was a builder –– of homes, the arts, educational opportunity, health breakthroughs that transformed dreams into reality," Garcetti wrote.
"I feel his loss and our city feels his loss deeply," he added. "Thank you, Eli, for driving hard to build a world-class city. Thank you for the grace, determination, and selflessness you always showed your beloved Los Angeles."
Java code testing: These open source tools and rethinking the process can reduce the burden for developers
Commentary: Developers do a lot of testing, a new survey finds. Are there ways to improve testing while reducing the time it takes?This latest survey, conducted independently of Pivotal and Diffblue by Vanson Bourne, a U.K. firm, collected answers anonymously from panels of participants (150 in the U.K. and 300 in the U.S.). The 15-question survey included a mixture of Likert scales, multiple choice and open-ended questions. The biggest surprise? The copious quantity of time developers spend on testing. Not writing new applications. Testing.

One of Broad's biggest legacies in Los Angeles is downtown's Broad Museum, which opened in 2015 and includes 2,000 artworks from the Broads' collection, worth $1.6 billion, according to.
Broad and his wife Edyth have donated millions of dollars to cultural landmarks across Los Angeles, including Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Disney Hall, as well as to UCLA for stem cell research and to the city's public schools.
Broad was vocal about his pride in his donations — or, as he liked to think about it, investments.
"We don't give it away, we invest it,". "And we want a return. Remember, I started work as a CPA, so that gave me fiscal discipline in everything I did in business. I guess some of it carries over to philanthropy."
