An update on CSV download scripts
By Google Webmaster Central (firstname.lastname@example.org) on 2015-08-31
API, search console, search queries
With the new Search Analytics API, it's now time to gradually say goodbye to the old CSV download scripts for information on queries & rankings. We'll be turning off access to these downloads on October 20, 2015.
These download scripts have helped various sites & tools to get information on queries, impressions, clicks, and rankings over the years. However, they didn't use the new Search Analytics data, and relied on the deprecated Client Login API.
Farewell, CSV downloads, you've served us (and many webmasters!) well, but it's time to move on. We're already seeing lots of usage with the new API. Are you already doing something neat with the API? Let us know in the comments!
Django Girls: Now with More Transparency!
By sitarskaola on 2015-09-01
Ever since we started Django Girls, making it open source was a top priority; our repository has never been private. Today, we still believe that open source is the way to go more than ever. But over the past year, we’ve learned that maintaining and growing a big project like Django Girls is damn hard! The bigger we grew, the slower we started to move.
To allow us to continue growing quickly, we recruited a Support Team to help us divide the workload while still maintaining the ability to make decisions rapidly and get things done. What we didn’t do was communicate about how we made that decision, and that was a mistake.
Mobile-friendly web pages using app banners
By Google Webmaster Central (email@example.com) on 2015-09-01
When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant answers, no matter if the answer lives in an app or a web page. We’ve recently made it easier for users to find and discover apps and mobile-friendly web pages. However, sometimes a user may tap on a search result on a mobile device and see an app install interstitial that hides a significant amount of content and prompts the user to install an app. Our analysis shows that it is not a good search experience and can be frustrating for users because they are expecting to see the content of the web page.
Starting today, we’ll be updating the Mobile-Friendly Test to indicate that sites should avoid showing app install interstitials that hide a significant amount of content on the transition from the search result page. The Mobile Usability report in Search Console will show webmasters the number of pages across their site that have this issue.
After November 1, mobile web pages that show an app install interstitial that hides a significant amount of content on the transition from the search result page will no longer be considered mobile-friendly. This does not affect other types of interstitials. As an alternative to app install interstitials, browsers provide ways to promote an app that are more user-friendly.

Integrating Plastic SCM with Google Cloud Messaging
By Sergio L. (firstname.lastname@example.org) on 2015-09-03
google cloud messaging, integrations
Google Cloud Messaging is, for those of you who don't know it, a free service that allows developers to send real time push notifications across different platforms, like Android, iOS, and Google Chrome. It is reliable, easy to implement both client and server sides, and it's fast.
So, while I was implementing GCM in a pet project of mine, it came to my mind that it could be useful for someone to have in their handheld device, or in their browser, real-time updates about what is happening in their team through their favorite DVC software.
Resolving Git conflicts with the magic rerere command
Last week I had the chance to attend the Laracon EU conference in Amsterdam. It was an amazing event and I learned a lot . Especially this one talk about advanced Git tricks by Lorna Jane was really great. That was when I first heard about this barely known command.
Rerere stands for "reuse recorded resolution". If this Git feature is turned on, it does two things. First it will record how you deal with conflicts. Secondly, if there is the exact same conflict, Git will resolve it for you. Just like that!

Coste basal del software vs capacidad infinita
By Eduardo Ferro Aldama (email@example.com) on 2015-09-06
agilidad, Desarrollo, Rayadas, Vida De informático
En mi opinión, el coste de desarrollo por cada grupo de funcionalidades se puede dividir de la siguiente forma:
- Coste inicial de desarrollo
- Coste de existencia (coste basal):
- Coste de existencia / complejidad añadida
- Coste de existencia para otras funcionalidades
Coste inicial de desarrollo
Este es el coste/gasto en el que incurre el equipo durante el desarrollo inicial de la funcionalidad. Incluye desde que el equipo comienza a trabajar en la funcionalidad o grupo de funcionalidades hasta que el cliente la tiene disponible y comienza a usarla. Por supuesto este proceso debería incluir múltiples puestas en producción para ir obteniendo feedback y realizando los ajustes necesarios...
