Fantasy Flight Games Announces Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 August 2017 - 12:00pm
Just because something has been broken doesn’t mean it’s not worth something. There’s a lot of symbolism, especially in historic cities. Such is the case with Mecatol City. It had been the capital of the Lazax Empire. Now it’s a blasted, shelled-out husk of what it once was. But all the races of the galaxy […]

Friday Snippets

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 August 2017 - 11:00am
Fridays are generally pretty cool. But this is the last Friday before Gen Con. As I’ve been talking with a few people today, when they say, “are you ready for Gen Con?” my answer is, “you’re never 100% ready for Gen Con. You’re just ‘as ready as you are when Gen Con runs into you’.” […]

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 August 2017 - 10:00am

Palantir: Learning by Doing: Palantir’s Internship Program

Learning by Doing: Palantir’s Internship Program brandt Fri, 08/11/2017 - 10:44 Alex Brandt Aug 14, 2017

Our interns bring fresh new perspective to our team.

In this post we will cover...
  • Why we love having interns
  • Some skills our interns learn
  • An intro to our current Summer interns

Stay connected with the latest news on web strategy, design, and development.

There are many different facets of “the Palantir way,” but one principle that sticks out the most is the encouragement to be continuously learning. As a company, we are strong advocates for the concept of “learning by doing,” which is why we’ve had a summer internship program going for years. We believe paid internship opportunities are essential to figuring out what career path is best for you, and they can be beneficial for both the company and the intern.

Our interns are provided the opportunity to see what it’s like to work on real projects with a development team while getting exposure to working through a process with clients. They gain experience using tools like Github and JIRA, and a deeper understanding of responsive design, open source software, and Agile development.

We’ve found that our interns bring huge value with new perspective to our team. They give other Palantiri an opportunity to work on mentorship, and our buddy system means we gain a quick understanding of our interns’ existing skills, so we can help them grow that skillset more effectively.

The added bonus of our internship program is that both sides get to leave with an understanding of whether or not it’s a good fit. Being a remote-first company, it’s nice for our interns to be able to test drive remote work and see if it works for them.

We’ve had such tremendous success in hiring our interns as full-time employees (you might be familiar with Ashley, Kelsey, Patrick, and Matt), that we’ve recently decided to expand our program beyond summer to accommodate the awesome candidates that have extended availability.

Meet Our 2017 Summer Interns! Lily Fisher

Dutch Open Projects: Content Security Policy and Drupal

Planet Drupal - 11 August 2017 - 5:19am
What is CSP?

Content Security Policy – or CSP – is a security feature of modern browsers. Browsers will ignore data from domains that are not cleared in the CSP http-response header. For instance if you embed a YouTube movie on a webpage and the domain is not whitelisted in the CSP header, then the movie will not be loaded. All traffic from will be blocked and the movie cannot be displayed.
