Not so long ago Intel launched their new perceptual computing vision which effectively is a cheaper alternative to Microsoft Kinect sensor, alongside that they began a challenge to create some inventive apps using the camera and to a select few (about 125+ developers) they offered the chance to win and own one.
Wiring code is a great way to document your designs, as it's always in sync with the rest of the code while diagrams aren't. However, it's important to consider all non-functional concerns of your Factories: how readable they are, but also how efficient they are in creating objects to satisfy the most common use case in your application.
If we want our teams to be successful, we need to start our conversation with what we believe to be the most important principles to pay attention to in software projects and use those principles as our true North.
This presentation by Marc Fasel will explore the asynchronous features of Node.js, describes code patterns for asynchronous applications, and shows how asynchronous libraries can be leveraged to build maintainable and scalable Node.js applications.
The best way of asking for help with your front-end code is to be able to share your exact code. But this is hard to do as most development problems should occur on your local machine with all the code on your local computer.
A wireframe is a visual guide that portrays how a page or screen of a website or system may look. Wireframes can range from very unfinished and "sketchy" in appearance, to very polished looking and reflective of how the system will look at 100 percent completion.
Nanomsg creator Martin Sustrik has a new blog post out this week about some discussions happening in the early stages of Nanomsg's development. These discussions are currently about adding administrative functionality and giving Nanomsg a config file. It's something that it's ancestor, ZeroMQ, doesn't have.
Many NoSQL data stores have the advantage of being schema-free (although the data still has an implicit structure). However, NoSQL stores don't have convenient schema management tools for when the schema evolves with the application. Meet the NoSQL schema evolution language.
Rob Davies, the CTO of FuseSource, which is now a part of Red Hat, has a new blog post out about a feature in the upcoming ActiveMQ 5.9 release that will allow developers to include a camel.xml file in their ActiveMQ broker config to do some cool stuff...
A new distributed graph database made its debut recently, saying it's comparable to Neo4j and Titan. The new database, called STEFFI, is in-memory and claims that it has recorded better performance metrics than Titan and Neo4j in several benchmarks.
