For some time now, I've wanted to have an svn set up on my shared web host similar to what we have here at civicactions. Having to make changes on my local machine for any personal (non-civicactions client) sites, then scp those files up to my server is ridiculous -- especially since when working on client sites, I've become so used to simply commiting the changes to a repository and then updating that repository on the server side. All that said though, I kept putting off the svn set up because as a simple drupal and civicrm developer, I was afraid that a system admin task like setting up svn would be too involved and maybe a bit over my head. Turns out, I should've done it months ago. How To Set Up An SVN Repository In 7 Simple Steps | A. J. Roach

Your startup needs a dashboard | Fruit Business Your startup is logging hundreds of metrics. If it isn’t, you should fix that right now. Your users are awesome – most of the metrics update a few times a second, the slowest only a few times a minute. So how often do you parse those logs and look for what they’re trying to say? Draw a graph or twenty?
Zwibbler is a drop-in solution that lets users draw on your web site. A/B testing is used far too often, for something that performs so badly. It is defective by design: Segment users into two groups. Show the A group the old, tried and true stuff. Show the B group the new whiz-bang design with the bigger buttons and slightly different copy.
Debugging is the cornerstone of being a programmer. The first meaning of the verb to debug is to remove errors, but the meaning that really matters is to see into the execution of a program by examining it. A programmer that cannot debug effectively is blind. Idealists that think design, or analysis, or complexity theory, or whatnot, are more fundamental are not working programmers. The working programmer does not live in an ideal world. How to be a Programmer: A Short, Comprehensive, and Personal Summary

Before beginning our journey to learn HTML and CSS it is important to understand the differences between the two languages, their syntax, and some common terminology. As an overview, HTML is a hyper text markup language created to give content structure and meaning. CSS, also known as cascading style sheets, is a presentation language created to give content style and appearance. To put this into laymen terms, HTML determines the structure and meaning of content on a web page while CSS determines the style and appearance of this content. The two languages are independent of one another. CSS should not reside within an HTML document and vice versa.
One of the most frequent questions I get goes something like this: “I have a really cool idea, but (name of big company or university) has a patent on that.” With over 8,000,000 patents issued to date and thousands of new patents issued weekly, the chances are good that there are patents out there that are relevant to your business or idea. Knowingly infringing an active patent can lead to disastrous consequences for your business. Help! There’s a patent on my idea! What now? « Startups and IP Strategy
Startup skills vs startup ideas There's an interesting but damaging perversion in the startup world, around ideas vs execution. Even among those who believe that "ideas are worthless, execution is everything", there is a practical, observable tendency to rate theory over practice. If you were advising someone about how to build a top quality web application, and they didn't know how to program, you'd tell them that first they need to learn to program, probably spend a year or more practicing the craft, before they have a chance to build even a mediocre quality application. Programming is a highly complex activity that takes skill (built through experience) to do well.
Machine Learning - complete course notes The following notes represent a complete, stand alone interpretation of Stanford's machine learning course presented by Professor Andrew Ng and originally posted on the ml-class.org website during the fall 2011 semester. The topics covered are shown below, although for a more detailed summary see lecture 19. The only content not covered here is the Octave/MATLAB programming. All diagrams are my own or are directly taken from the lectures, full credit to Professor Ng for a truly exceptional lecture course. What are these notes?

facebook/git-review - GitHub README.rst git-review is a tool for reviewing diffs in a git repository. It provides a simple CLI for stepping through the modified files, and viewing the differences with an external diff tool. This is very convenient if you prefer using an interactive side-by-side diff viewer. Although you could also use the GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF environment variable with git diff, git-review provides much more flexibility for moving between files and selecting which versions to diff.
