Four years later, Google’s first Code Next class is graduating

My weekday routine is a balancing act. When I walk to the subway station at six in the morning, it's typically still dark outside. If I'm lucky, I'll snag a seat on the 5 train for the hour-long ride from the Bronx to Manhattan, but most days I'm standing—balancing with one hand on a pole and the other gripping my phone (usually working on something on Google Docs for class at the last minute). I'm headed to Yale in the fall! I’m one of the 54 students that make up Google Code Next’s ...

Facebook cofounder Saverin’s B Capital just closed its third flagship fund with $822 million

It hasn’t taken long for B Capital to amass a pretty hefty third fund. Just five years after the venture firm was launched by Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin and Raj Ganguly, a veteran of private-equity firm Bain Capital, the firm is taking the wraps off a third fund that has amassed $822 million in capital commitments. That’s almost precisely twice what the now 70-person, growth-stage outfit raised for its second, $410 million fund, which was itself closer in size to B Capital’s debut fund....

YC-backed Tango Builder wants to use aerospace engineering to build a house

Housing has been constructed for millennia, and while clearly our modern abodes are ever so slightly better than the elk tents we used to live in, the construction techniques behind housing today haven’t progressed all that much. What has progressed are prices — it’s more expensive than ever to build a modern unit, and that’s just for housing — head over to commercial real estate, and the numbers don’t look much better. For Martin Diz and his team, that’s a problem. Diz is not exactly a lifelong...
