Ali’s CTO: Announced 20 years of architectural truth

When people like to recall the past, I have dinked with friends before, and my friends said that he had touched the big cow that came into contact with Ali.

Inciical Big Bulls, we generally think that it is more than Du Long, Episodes, Lu Su, and Taoist, but today we talk to Gu Dongbai, he is my front boss of my friend, we generally call him Ali’s flower name "Albai".

Maybe you have not heard of him, I was also because my friend said that there was a big man to arrive, I only knew him. Remember that Albao or the Mini Seller’s Ministry of Technical Director, there is a double eleven vendor trading volume of more than 20 million, and the system of six global level big banks is rushing, and the result is almost selling. The system has increased at 300% of peak trading volume, and the thief is stable.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have much intersection with him. The impression is a series of articles on the Ali internal technology platform ATA, have domain models and AE architectures. Ah is a 14-year arrival of Ali. It is more than 20 years (it is a group company of the melon used car), and I also finally have the opportunity to see the complete history of Albai:

Guo Dongbai, a lot of groups of new Joined the car, graduated from Shanghai Jiaotong University, and then went to Brown University to study a master’s and doctoral degree.

During 2000 to 2010, Guo Dongbai took more than 10 years in software giant Oracle (Oracle), and then went to Microsoft and Amazon.

In September 2014, Guo Dongbai joined Aliexpress in the identity of the Chief Architect, and promoted to CTO in March 2017; December 2018, Guo Dongbai promoted to the Lazada Group CTO, which was responsible for 6 people in the world. More than 600 engineers in the R & D center and cooperated with the department of Alibaba Group to support Lazada’s business growth.

It is worth mentioning that this is not a lot of cars (the melon used car) first introduced the former Ali executives to serve as the company.

Learning tyrant + foreign head IT factoryI feel that he should call him "giant", P10 is probably only more than 400 in Ali (left ear mouse and Li Yunhua are the first P9), CTO is even more, not to mention the CTO of the independent business line, estimated Ali Just seven eight with him.

Recently, I heard that Albai opened a new column in the extreme time, called"Guo Dongbai’s Architecture Class". He said that he has experienced a complete process of architect career development. From programmers, he has done a part-time architect, and has also done cross-domain architects and general architects, and has made pure technology CTO, and also taking a product Team’s CTO. So this column combines a lot of his own true experience, writing in the decades of architectural methods and growth recommendations, giving them to now you and twenty years ago.

This column records very many architectural methods of architecture, many growth methods and the principles of avoiding pits, including the "Six Survival of Architects", "eight key nodes implemented by architect activities", "architect capacity improvement Five major key powers, etc. Suitable for people who are working hard or in the future, they want to become a architect, now the best price is the best, it is time to start.

The entire column is divided into four modules, covering the four different dimensions of architect careers.

Module 1: Six major survival laws of architects.A Bai binds to the six principles who have a concluding summary of their decades experienced as a architect must respect.

Module 2: Architect’s value creation.Considering the implementation level of large architecture projects, you must pay attention to and intervene as an important node that must be paid attention to and intervene, teach you how to create value in architectural activities.

Module 3: Focus on you, help you plan to grow in the professionals of architects.The challenges facing each stage of architect growth are different.

The module fourth is the last module: thinking.Thinking as the core ability of architect survival, even the core ability of any occupation in the future. Ah Bai offers some methods he and its own team to improve the quality of thinking, including logical thinking, critical thinking, reverse engineering, reflection, cross boundary and data analysis.

Specific details, you can check the directory:

Nowadays, many technicians want to be architects. I feel more than the money, the power is big, and if I leave the motivation, I don’t think it is, I am more agree that the teacher said.Architect does not have a quick class. I hope that these experiences and principles of Mr. Dongbai can help us do well, take less and more successful opportunities, let you have a clearer path plan for your career growth.

Xiaomi Mi Band 6 review: Still the best fitness band in the market?

When it comes to tracking daily steps and basic fitness, the Mi Band remains one of the most reliable options in the market. The latest Mi Band 6 builds on this with some big changes. For one, it has a higher price tag at Rs 3,499 compared to the Rs 2,499 tag of the Mi Band 5. Second, it now comes with a bigger 1.56-inch display compared to the 1.1-inch display on the earlier band. Finally, it adds an important change in the form of support for blood oxygen monitoring, which has become a much sought-after feature in the time of Covid-19.

But do the changes justify the higher price? And what makes the Mi Band 6 a better pick compared to the countless fitness trackers and watches in the market? Let’s take a look in our review

Xiaomi Mi Band 6 review: What’s good?

When I first saw the Mi Band 6 and it was hard not to notice the larger screen. The AMOLED display with 326 pixels per inch (PPI) and a maximum brightness of 450 nits is legible even in harsh sunlight. In fact, I would say the display is a bit too bright, especially if you plan on wearing this for sleep tracking.

But the bigger display also means that the Mi Band 6 is now a little bit more suited to display notifications from messaging apps such as WhatsApp. It’s not perfect, and the text is still small, but this definitely adds more usefulness to the device. The Mi Band 6 is now compatible with the Xiaomi Wear app, which was powering fitness watches from the brand.

Users can go into the Xiaomi Wear app and turn on phone notifications, app notifications, etc for them to appear on the device. Mi Band 6 of course connects with Mi Fit app and now the Strava app as well. It is also capable of auto-detecting six fitness modes, including walking, running, cycling, indoor rowing, and elliptical.

The band’s setup now includes a SPO2 monitor for tracking blood oxygen levels. Just make sure you wear the band tightly and stay still when measuring these. The two three times I used this feature, my blood oxygen levels were usually 98-99 per cent, so I’m guessing this works accurately.

As always with steps, the Mi Band 6 remains accurate, and if I may say so, a bit stingy. I did not notice any jump in steps (maybe 3-4) while sitting in a car. The band’s step count was bang on, especially on days where I knew I had not been very active. And the band figured out when I had started walking, as the auto-detect feature worked spot on. Though it usually detected around 5-10 minutes I had started walking.

By the way, if the auto-detect does come on, and you’re not really in the middle of a workout, say you had just stepped out for grocery shopping, you can choose an option for the band to ignore these and turn off auto-detect for an hour or so.

The Mi Band 6 can latch onto your phone’s GPS systems and detect the directions when you are walking or out on a run. Though, you will then need to take your phone along. If you don’t take the phone, then the GPS routes are not recorded.

The two-three walks I took with the Mi Band 6 were pretty accurate. Another feature I really appreciated was that the band would immediately pause if and when I took a break during exercise or walk. I was mighty impressed by the accuracy given this is still a budget fitness tracker.

I also took the Mi Band 6 for my outdoor cycle rides, and here’s where I faced some issues. But the band was accurate when it came to distance, elevation during the cycle ride. I also used the band to track indoor cycling sessions, and while it does not show any distance, the calories burnt were in line with what my cycle was showing.

The fitness band is swim-proof and water-resistant. I have not been able to take it for a swim, but I often wore it during baths, and it continues to work fine. The band’s sleep tracker remains accurate as always, one of the best in the business. For instance, when I slept at 1.30 am recently, and woke up early, the band has marked that day as ‘lack of sleep’ and I would wholly agree 100 percent.

The fitness band can also track menstrual cycles for women as well. One can add the dates of their last period and average cycle duration to the Xiaomi Wear app to see the prediction. The band will also reflect when your period is about to happen, ovulation days, etc. It also comes with stress monitoring, breathing exercises for those who wish to use such features.
