    The Salesforce Mobile SDK allows developers to easily build Native (iOS and Android) and Hybrid (Cordova-based) applications on top of the Salesforce platform. Version 2.3 was released last week, and you can find the list of new and improved features in the official announcement blog post. My own favorite new feature is Cordova 3.5 support for Hybrid apps. You can now build Salesforce mobile applications using your standard Cordova workflows, and using the latest versions of Cordova core and community plugins. There are two options to create a Hybrid app using the Mobile SDK: Using the Mobile…

    Today I’m excited to announce that we just released a new set of VM sizes for Microsoft Azure. These VM sizes are now available to be used immediately by every Azure customer. The new D-Series of VMs can be used with both Azure Virtual Machines and Azure Cloud Services.  In addition to offering faster vCPUs (approximately 60% faster than our A series) and more memory (up to 112 GB), the new VM sizes also all have a local SSD disk (up to 800 GB) to enable much faster IO reads and writes. The new VM sizes available today include the following: General Purpose D-Series VMs Name vCores…

    Jekyll is simple static content compiler popularized by GitHub Pages. If you use Jekyll in a GitHub repo a static website will automatically be created for you by running Jekyll on your content sources (e.g. Markdown). That works well but there are cases where it is nice to deploy a Jekyll site on Heroku. After trying (and failing) to follow many of the existing blogs about running Jekyll on Heroku, I cornered my coworker Terence Lee and got some help. Turns out it is pretty simple. Not interested in the details? Skip right to a diff that makes a Jekyll site deployable on Heroku. Here are the…

    It has been six months since I posted the first version of the Employee Directory app built with Ionic and AngularJS. Ionic has been moving fast, and it was time for an update.

    A few weeks ago, I delivered a Cordova/PhoneGap Workshop at jQuery UK in Oxford. Great conference in a great location! I took the opportunity to revamp the workshop I had been delivering at PhoneGap Day in Portland and Amsterdam, and at LXJS in Lisbon. I thought it could be useful to a larger audience, so I just posted the updated materials for the first part of the workshop (Cordova CLI, Single Page Architecture, Templates, Cordova APIs, Hardware Acceleration, Performance Techniques, etc.) here.

    2013 was a great year for me to learn more about fitness and health. I tried 3 specific diet changes: a caloric deficit, a vegetarian diet, and a caloric increase (bulk phase). Fitness wise I tried #P90X2 , #BodyBeast , and my own custom routine I put together from my own research. As you can see from the charts I lost a ton of fat and weight through P90X, but P90X2 really pushed me to the lowest body fat and weight I’ve ever been since in my teen years (I’m 34).   Sadly, the caloric deficit, which consists of eating 500 to 300 calories less per day then you need was…

    Some wonderfully choice quotes from this cyber security essay by Dan Geer. Quite long, but (somewhat?) clearly illustrates the challenges of living in a society where there is so much data about you easily accessible, even if you don’t actually intentionally contribute. Additionally, he covers the increasing struggle how we conform to these loss of freedoms which is the antithesis of being an American, yet we keep doing it. While he has a call out to fight it, as far as I can see, there aren’t any easy/obvious solutions, nor did he provide any. In the 21st century, we have a…

Yes, months. Second, because it’s so big with many of the parts not under the purview of the contractor, they can’t rewrite it. That means, it’ll take 2 times or more…

I wanted all 3, npm, Bower, and Grunt printed out on my office wall so I could refer to both for myself, and for others who need a quick start. Specifically for front-end JavaScript developers either inheriting a project, or starting to setup the basics of a build & deployment system for their own project who have no experience with…

    Salesforce.com was initially created as a Sales Force Automation (SFA) / Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application in the cloud but has evolved over the years into a modern platform for all types of enterprise applications. Now the Salesforce name is a legacy artifact of that past. This is like the name Frigidaire which is still the name for a company that now produces much more than Frigidaires (i.e. Refrigerators). The Salesforce1 Platform still provides the SFA & CRM applications but is also a foundation for building modern systems. Pricing & Additions The…

    Today at 11:15AM EDT, the jQuery Infrastructure team received widespread reports and confirmed a compromise of jquery.com. This attack was aimed at defacing our sites, and did not inject malware like the attack that was reported on September 18th by RiskIQ. We believe that these are separate incidents that may have used the same attack vector. We took the site down as soon as we realized there was a compromise and cleaned the infected files. We are taking steps to re-secure our servers, upgrade dependencies, and address vulnerabilities. At no point today have there been reports of malware…

  • Implementing the Presentation Model Pattern in Swift

    FlexMonkey
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:30 pm
    For the last few years, almost all of the Flex projects I've worked on have used the Presentation Model (PM) pattern along with the Parsley application framework for dependency injection. Broadly speaking, a presentation model holds the presentational state and behavioural logic of an application and, in doing so, minimises the amount of code in view controls. Because several views can utilise the same presentation model, properties such as state can be shared between them.Views hold a strongly typed reference to the presentation model so they…

We’ve finally decided to just pull the trigger and take the hit on revenue, because taking care of our Students is always the right thing to do. If you weren’t already aware, Treehouse students have had the option to pause their account for up to 3 months at a time. At the end of that period your account would be automatically unpaused, and you’d begin paying for your account again. For those of you that used pausing, the time limit was inconvenient, and introduced…

  • Curl for the new Kodansh kanji books

    7 Sep 2014 | 4:51 am
    I am hard at work on Curl projects for the 2 Kodansha kanji books issued in 2013 : The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Course by Andrew Scott Conning and The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary, 2nd Ed., by Jack Halpern. The latter now includes Unicode values for 3002 kanji as well as index numbers for those found among the 2300 kanji of the Conning book. The course book has a few kanji not found in the learner's dictionary, but they are a very good match for someone who wants to read, say, the blog posts here in the Curl Global Community without relying on Google translate !

    Unlike some of those fervent Agile proponents who think the Agile process is "the end all and be all" solution of our IT ills, our approach to IT process improvement is based not on some vague process improvement for the sake of process, but on an organization's business needs and goals—the only condition for any process improvement effort to have a measurable and lasting success.Step 1: Identify the Business Sponsor and Her or His Needs and GoalsAs long as we recognize that the main objective in building software is to support a business, it will become obvious that for a software delivery…

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint. At the end of 2010, according to Akamai, the average fi xed - line broadband speed in the United States was 5Mbps,many factors faster than…

    14 Aug 2012 | 7:58 am
    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…
  • THE TECHNICAL CHALLENGES OF MOBILE DEVICES - Browser Characteristics

    Developer Techno
    12 Aug 2012 | 7:48 am
    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

    Pick up any mobile device and look at it carefully. Of course, the first thing you notice is the size, shape, and weight of its physical implementation. Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    Read original post by Vivek Maskara at Windows App Tutorials Blog There are numerous apps in the Windows Phone marketplace which let you record audio and play it back. You can build a similar app on your own by following this simple tutorial where we will use Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Audio.Microphone class to take audio input from Windows Phone microphone.
