    The R language is a powerful open source functional programming language. At its core, R is a statistical programming language that provides impressive tools for analyzing data and creating high level graphics. It also offers an interface to other languages. This means R is best suited to producing data and visual analytics through customizable scripts and commands, instead of your typical statistical tools, which provide tick boxes and dropdown menus for users. The major difficulty for many users of R is the mathematics behind the algorithms, which makes the learning process difficult to…

    Last week my friend Cameron and I tackled the longest possible day hike in Henry Coe State Park. The brutal 26-mile loop hike to Mississippi Lake and back comes with about 6000′ of elevation gain, making it a true test of will. Cameron, a 51 year old, ex-Army Ranger, hadn’t really been training at all for this but he still finished strong. We got to the trailhead at Dunne Street headquarters at around 06:30 and we were off on the Corral Trail by 07:00. We estimated that it would take approximately 10-12 hours and that ended up being pretty accurate as we returned to my truck at…

    The first preview release of ASP.NET 1.0 came out almost 15 years ago.  Since then millions of developers have used it to build and run great web applications, and over the years we have added and evolved many, many capabilities to it.  I'm excited today to post about a new release of ASP.NET that we are working on that we are calling ASP.NET 5.  This new release is one of the most significant architectural updates we've done to ASP.NET.  As part of this release we are making ASP.NET leaner, more modular, cross-platform, and cloud optimized.  The ASP.NET 5 preview is…

  • JavaScript Transpiled Languages

    JesterXL
    1 Feb 2015 | 6:15 pm
    Introduction JavaScript is now the assembly of the web. Rather than wait on language innovation in the design by committee web standards world, many choose to use more advanced languages and tooling to develop in, that then compile to JavaScript. Transpilers, also known as source to source compilers or transcompilers, are used to translates source code to another form of source code. They are popular and numerous, not just for JavaScript, but also for C, and many other languages. In this article I cover why they are valuable for JavaScript developers, give details on the popular ones in the…
  • Message Systems in Programming: Part 7 of 7 – Conclusions

    JesterXL
    24 Dec 2014 | 8:01 am
    Conclusions As you can see, each messaging system has pro’s and con’s. Also, each can, and often is, used in tandem with each other. They aren’t always stand alone, and many are used in the same code base. As you better understand the basics of messaging systems, you can more easily make your Object Oriented code bases easier to encapsulate. It also makes it easier when using Design Patterns to have disparate parts of the code talk to each other in a flexible way. Why Write This and Other Random Notes For context, the whole reason I wrote this article is I had no idea why…
  • Message Systems in Programming: Part 6 of 7 – Streams

    JesterXL
    24 Dec 2014 | 8:01 am
    Streams Streams are merely Array’s that emit change events through a callback when items are added to it. That’s it. People try to make them sound magical, complicated, or like some core savior technique of programming life. They’re not. They’ve been around long before me in networking code. They’re how Github visualizes different branches. They’re just Arrays that emit change events to a callback you can filter before you get the event. You don’t even have to use events; you could just use any value you want. Most implementations also play nice with…
  • Message Systems in Programming: Part 5 of 7 – Promise and Deferred

    JesterXL
    24 Dec 2014 | 7:58 am
    Promise and Deferred (or Futures and Completers) We’ve glossed over asynchronous coding up to this point. Many from languages which have reasonable event API’s (ActionScript) to extremely nice ones (C#), it may not at first look like a problem, or even appear to be an edge case. Coming from ActionScript, it took me years to get comfortable, and understand why, Promises were helpful. Also, many in those languages either create, or have facilities that help create, orchestration code to help mitigate common asynchronous coding issues. But first, why asynchronous code? Synchronous…

    Today I completed my second hike in Henry Coe State Park, a 10-mile loop to China Hole and back. My comrade Tom Krcha came along with me and we arrived at park HQ at around 10:30. China Hole is one the most popular hikes at Henry Coe as its length and difficulty makes it rewarding for both beginners and more experienced hikers. We followed the route from this guide on TripAdvisor, taking the Madrone Soda Springs Trail on the way out. Lunch at China Hole The hike has a total elevation gain of 2204 ft, with the toughest section being right after the turn-around point on China Hole Trail.

    The other day I tackled what many people consider to be the toughest trail in the Bay Area. Of course there are so many things that can factor into the toughness of a hike so I take this designation with a grain of salt. The Mt. Sizer Loop is a 15-16 mile loop hike through the beautiful Henry Coe State Park near Morgan Hill. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the park’s headquarters from San Jose. I arrived around 08:30, paid the park fees, and was off hiking by about 09:00. 5.11 Tactical RUSH 72 pack I used my 5.11 Tactical RUSH 72 pack with 2 CamelBack reservoirs containing…

  • Security Risks Associated with Native Packagers

    4 Mar 2015 | 7:50 am
    Native packaging solutions have enabled organizations to leverage web technology and develop cross-platform applications for smart mobile devices. However, these solutions continue to have a persistent drawback: all app resources are packaged unencrypted. It is very easy to copy the binary executable for a packaged app, unzip the binary and retrieve sensitive resources, including the source code. Local application data is also stored unencrypted by default. Over the past several years, it seems like we haven’t gone more than a few weeks without hearing about a major security breach on the…

    We’re excited to announce that the Pointer Events specification has become a W3C Recommendation! As we’ve said before, we love Pointer Events because they support all of the common input devices today – mouse, pen/stylus, and fingers – but they’re also designed in such a way that future devices can easily be added, and existing code will automatically support the new device. While reaching Recommendation status is a monumental moment, there’s still much work to do. Pointer Events aren’t a viable solution until they’re usable in all of the…

    Last week, the jQuery Foundation announced our adoption of the Esprima project, the widely used JavaScript parser that powers many code analysis tools. Today we’re pleased to announce the release of version 2.0, now available on npm. Up until now, the official releases of Esprima have only parsed ECMAScript 5 standard syntax. However, the experimental “harmony” branch has been adding ECMAScript 2015 (also popularly known as ES6) features for quite some time. A lot of the work there has been driven by Facebook. Now that the syntax for many ES6 features has stabilized and even…

    Scott Barnes
    23 Feb 2015 | 4:17 am
    It’s approx. 19 years now since I first earned payment for my ability to use a computer. In that 19 years I’ve had a vast number of different roles and some of them have been mentally draining whilst most have been constantly built around growth (i.e. learning from failures etc.). In this time I’ve come across a few things that we seemed to be destined to repeat over and over no matter how many places I work and how experienced my fellow computer horde members are. Before I outline these let me start by saying I have been programming more in my life than at times I get to design and…
  • Creating a designer & developer workflow end to end.

    16 Dec 2014 | 2:44 am
      When I was at Microsoft we had one mission really with the whole Silverlight & WPF platform(s) – create a developer & designer workflow that keeps both parties working productively. It was a mission that i look back on even to this day with annoyance, because we never even came close to scratching the surface of that potential. Today, the problem still even with Adobe and Microsoft competitive battles in peace-time hasn’t actually been solved – if anything it kind of got slightly compounded or fragmented more so. Absorbing the failure and having to take a…

    When you’re in a role of UX you tend to have contested territory marked out around you. Everyone around you has an opinion on something that fits within your charter so you in turn have to be the guarded diplomat constantly. I don’t mind heated exchange of ideas, when people get passionate about something they always stand their ground on a topic and make sure their voice is heard clearly and loudly (often without politeness attached). In these situations what I typically have echoing at the back of my brain is a question “do they think or do they know”. I think something instead of I…
  • How UX & Ethnography mix.

    Scott Barnes
    8 Dec 2014 | 4:03 am
    Inside most organisations you’ll likely see a marketing team distill their customer base into a cluster of persona(s), which in their view is a core representative of a segment of their audience in a meaningful & believable form. These persona(s) are likely to be accurate or moreover a confirmation on a series of instincts that may or may not have supportive data to underpin their factoids. The issue with these personas is that they are likely to be a representative of the past, that is to say using them isn’t really about transplanting their behaviors into the future, instead its…

    I’ve been sitting on this blog post for quite some time trying to articulate how I see the two sets of roles interacting and co-existing with one another. I’ve been in both these roles both separately and collectively and it’s really a puzzling uncomfortable experience. The problem today, is simple – UX has traction and before we all start high fiving each other on this victory, we still need to reconcile how this whole thing is going to work. Today, typically UX is a huge challenge for product teams to invest in, especially if they are deeply entrenched in legacy solution(s)…

    Hooks in WordPress allow developers to easily tie their own code in with the WordPress core code base, themes, and plugins. In this article, we’ll discover what hooks are, go over the different types of hooks, and look at a few examples of hooks in action.

  • Nested Routes in Laravel 4

    As a continuation of the Laravel Basics course here at Treehouse, I want to extend our todo lists example to have todo list items with nested restful routing. Let’s take a look at the URL patterns for our todo lists by looking at the output of Laravel’s artisan routes command. $ php artisan routes $ | | GET|HEAD / | | TodoListController@index | $ | | GET|HEAD todos | todos.index | TodoListController@index | $ | | GET|HEAD todos/create | todos.create | TodoListController@create | | $ | | POST todos | todos.store | TodoListController@store | $ | | GET|HEAD todos/{todos} | todos.show |…
  • How to Add a Navigation Drawer in Android

    2 Feb 2015 | 11:54 am
    Android now includes a component that makes it very easy to add a navigation drawer to an app that the user can slide in from the side. I first remember seeing this in the Facebook app in iOS, and I thought it was a pretty nifty mobile design pattern (though others some people strongly disagree). I will assume you are here because you think it is good for your app, though! In Android this component is called the navigation drawer. The Android design guidelines have a nice section on when and how we should use the navigation drawer in an app. One of my favorite uses if for power-user features…

  • Developing for Microsoft Band with WinRT – Sensors

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:25 am
    Read original post at James Croft's BlogIn this post, I’m going to cover the basics of getting your WinRT (Windows Store and Windows Phone) apps reading the sensors from your Microsoft Band with the Microsoft Band SDK. If you’d like to know how to get connected, read my previous post here. If you’ve come here from my first post on getting connected, the last code block where we start a using statement for our Band connection can be taken out and instead just be replaced with an assignment to a property that we can use throughout the app. Once we have the connection, we will…
  • Back navigation on Backspace key press in Windows 8.1 apps

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:22 am
    Read original post at Igor Kulman's Coding Journal I am not a mouse or a touch person, I like using the keyboard and keyboard shortcuts for everything. So when I (have to) use a Windows 8.1 Metro app, I always miss when the app does not navigate back when I press the Backspace key, just like the browser does. Implementing this functionality is really simple, you just need to handle the KeyUp event and listen for the Backspace key. You can implement the KeyUp event handler on every View in your app, but that is not necessary. You can just hook up the global Window.Current.CoreWindow.KeyUp…

    Read original post at Kevin Gosse's BlogAnother new addition to the Windows 10 SDK is the SplitView. It’s used to display a side menu, such as the one usually called “hamburger menu”. It’s quite straightforward to use. The “Pane” property contains the code of the menu itself. The page content goes into the control itself. The “OpenPaneLength” sets the width of the menu. Lastly, the “PanePlacement” property indicates on which side of the page the menu will appear (currently limited to left and right, top and bottom doesn’t seem…
