HTML5 vs. Apps: Why The Debate Matters, And Who Will Win HTML5 is a new technology that allows developers to build rich web-based apps that run on any device via a standard web browser. Many think it will save the web, rendering native platform-dependent apps obsolete.
Data Says R Amongst Most Popular Languages Data Scientist Drew Conway tackles the problem of deciding which programming languages are the most popular in an interesting way: by comparing the number of projects tagged in GitHub with each language, and the number of questions in StackOverflow about the language. The former is a measure of how often a language is used (though, mainly for open source projects); the latter is a measure of how many programmers are asking questions about it. Drew uses these measures and a k-means clustering technique to categorize langauges as follows: Most Popular (generally ranked in the highest 20% of languages in StackOverflow and GitGub)Second Tier (ranked in the 60%-80% quartiles)High Variance (ranked in the 20%-60% quartiles)Least Popular (ranked in the bottom 20-25%)Incomparable (because of indeterminate rankings in StackOverflow)

How to Build an Excellent Web or Mobile App
If you ever want to screw over a library, just walk up to any shelf, pick up any book, and put it on another shelf where it doesn’t belong. Eventually a librarian will stumble across it, see that it’s out of place, and pull it off the shelf. Until then, that book is hopelessly lost. It might as well be on the surface of the moon. Sorting and searching at the library
Amazon S3 - Cross Origin Resource Sharing Support Why CORS?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) added support today for a browser specification that defines ways for apps to allow resources to be accessed by web pages from different domains. The practice is called Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) and has been requested by AWS users for the past few years. The new service represents another way that AWS automates tasks that developers once had to do themselves. Amazon Web Services Adds Long Requested Web Browser Specification
