The Taxonomy of Terrible Programmers – Aaronontheweb

In particular, we talked about bad apples who joined our development teams over the years and proceeded to ruin the things we love with poor judgment, bad habits, bad attitudes, and a whole lot of other bizarre behavior that would take industrial pyschologists thousands of years to document, let alone analyze. So I present you with the taxonomy of terrible software developers, the ecosystem of software critters and creatures who add a whole new meaning to the concept of “defensive programming.” At one point or another, every programmer exists as at least one of these archetypes – the good ones see these bad habits in themselves and work to fix them over time. The bad ones… simply are. Tic Tac Toe: Understanding The Minimax Algorithm. Note!

Android's 10 Millisecond Problem: The Android Audio Path Latency Explainer. How Android’s 10 Millisecond Problem and Android Audio Path Latency Impacts App Developers and Android OEMs Even though music apps make up only 3% of all downloads in the iOS App Store, the Music app category is the 3rd highest revenue generating app category after Games and Social Networking.

Android's 10 Millisecond Problem: The Android Audio Path Latency Explainer

Which suggests that music apps monetize disproportionately well on platforms that offer low latency performance such as the App Store/iOS devices. On Android, it is a different story. In the Google Play store, the Music category is not even a top five revenue producing app category. The overwhelming majority of Android devices suffer from too high audio latency, preventing developers from building apps that would satisfy consumer demand on Android. As such, Google and Android app developers are leaving billions of dollars on the table for Apple and iOS developers because of Android’s 10 Millisecond Problem. Google launches Cloud Dataflow service in beta, adds row permissions in BigQuery. Why do some developers at strong companies like Google consider Agile development to be nonsense? - Agile Overflow.

Why (most) High Level Languages are Slow. In the last month or two I’ve had basically the same conversation half a dozen times, both online and in real life, so I figured I’d just write up a blog post that I can refer to in the future.

Why (most) High Level Languages are Slow

They have to do expensive garbage collections But really, both of these boil down to a single reason: the language heavily encourages too many allocations. First, I’ll just state up front that for all of this I’m talking mostly about client-side applications. Developreneurs: Don’t miss the next $1B opportunity. Want to master the CMO role?

Google now automatically converts Flash ads to HTML5. Google today began automatically converting Adobe Flash ads to HTML5. As a result, it’s now even easier for advertisers to target users on the Google Display Network without a device or browser that supports Flash. Back in September, Google began offering interactive HTML5 backups when Flash wasn’t supported. The Flash-to-HTML5 conversion tools for the Google Display Network and DoubleClick Campaign Manager created an HTML5 version of Flash ads, showing an actual ad rather than a static image backup.

Now, Google will automatically convert eligible Flash campaigns, both existing and new, to HTML5. All the advertiser has to do is upload their ads through AdWords, AdWords Editor, or many third-party tools that work with Google’s ad platform. Serious. Software development. Technologies. Web.
