How To Set Up An SVN Repository In 7 Simple Steps. 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.

How To Set Up An SVN Repository In 7 Simple Steps

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. It's crazy easy! Step 1. Learn Shortcuts. Work Faster. Vim Commands, Photoshop Shortcuts, Unix Commands, Sublime Shortcuts, or any Editor.

20 lines of code that will beat A/B testing every time

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. How to be a Programmer: A Short, Comprehensive, and Personal Summary. Debugging is the cornerstone of being a programmer.

How to be a Programmer: A Short, Comprehensive, and Personal Summary

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. Even if you are perfect, your are surrounded by and must interact with code written by major software companies, organizations like GNU, and your colleagues. Debugging is about the running of programs, not programs themselves. Free Classes. Awesome Instructors. Inspiring Community.

Work at a Startup 2012. How to Win a Hackathon - Rummage. How to Win a Hackathon For 30 straight hours this weekend, my co-founder, Matt, and I competed in AngelHack (the biggest hackathon in the nation) for $75,000 in prizes, and the potential for recognition of our startup, Rummage.

Terminology, Syntax, & Introduction - A Beginners Guide to HTML & CSS. 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.

Terminology, Syntax, & Introduction - A Beginners Guide to HTML & CSS

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. Taking this concept a bit further, the HTML p element is used to display a paragraph of text on a web page. Common HTML Terms. Help! There’s a patent on my idea! What now? « Startups and IP Strategy. 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.”

Help! There’s a patent on my idea! What now? « Startups and IP Strategy

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.


Startup skills vs startup ideas. There's an interesting but damaging perversion in the startup world, around ideas vs execution.

Startup skills vs startup ideas

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 website during the fall 2011 semester.

We’ve covered quite a bit of Python in the previous tutorials in this Session. Today, we’re going to combine everything we’ve learned so far to build a dynamic website with Python. Prefer a Video Tutorial? So, how do you get started creating websites with Python? Well, you could do it all yourself, and write a program that runs on a web server, accepting page requests and serving up responses in the form of HTML and other resources.

3MF Project: What's In A GIF - Bit by Byte. We sill start off by walking though the different parts of a GIF file. (The information on this page is primarily drawn from the W3C GIF89a specification.) A GIF file is made up of a bunch of different "blocks" of data. The following diagram shows all of the different types of blocks and where they belong in the file. The file starts at the left and works it's way right. A successful Git branching model » In this post I present the development model that I’ve introduced for some of my projects (both at work and private) about a year ago, and which has turned out to be very successful. I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now.

I won’t talk about any of the projects’ details, merely about the branching strategy and release management. It focuses around Git as the tool for the versioning of all of our source code. (By the way, if you’re interested in Git, our company GitPrime provides some awesome realtime data analytics on software engineering performance.) The Tools We Work With — Varnish version trunk documentation. "Only amateurs were limited by their tools" is an old wisdom, and the world is littered with art and architecture that very much proves this point.

But as amazing as the Aquaeduct of Segovia is, tools are the reason why it looks nowhere near as fantastic as the Sydney Opera House. About Jarvis - GitHub.
