Introducing the PivotViewer Control for Silverlight The Silverlight PivotViewer control is now available. Jesse Liberty and I have been working closely with the Live Labs team to help transition the PivotViewer control out as a real product for the developer community. I'm excited to say that the control is no longer a lab project, but is now out and available for developers! My congratulations to the team; they worked really hard to get this control out and into your hands. Of course, it wouldn't be any good to launch a cool control like this without giving you guys everything you need to get started, so let's take a look at what else we put together for you. GNU Linux-libre project Download | News | How | SVN | Other downloads | Artwork Linux, the kernel developed and distributed by Linus Torvalds et al, contains non-Free Software, i.e., software that does not respect your essential freedoms, and it induces you to install additional non-Free Software that it doesn't contain. GNU Linux-libre is a project to maintain and publish 100% Free distributions of Linux, suitable for use in Free System Distributions, removing software that is included without source code, with obfuscated or obscured source code, under non-Free Software licenses, that do not permit you to change the software so that it does what you wish, and that induces or requires you to install additional pieces of non-Free Software.
5 Templates for Better Understanding Your Customers Once you understand your personas’ needs, it’s time to determine how to meet them. Agile development teams work with stakeholders to create user stories: simple statements to describe what users want, so they can develop a shared understanding of customers, and prioritize tasks and features to fit this customer-centric approach. A user story is typically formatted as a phrase about who the user is, what they want, and why. For example: “As a first-time homebuyer, Anna wants access to multiple mortgage options so she can get the best deal.” Putting this idea in the first person helps keep the focus on the user, rather than the feature.
Visualizing Graphs in 3D with WebGL – neo4j I was already aware of and impressed by three.js, especially the 3d and WebGL capabilities. I had seen and done some graph visualization using it years ago, but 3d-force-graph packages three.js nicely with a Graph API and adds useful options to quickly get good looking results. If you want to try the different approaches directly, I put them into a GitHub Repository with live examples using the RawGit Service to serve HTML pages and assets directly from the repository. Datasets I started by using the Game of Thrones interaction graph, that my colleague Will Lyon wrote about here and which you can create yourself by running :play got in your Neo4j Browser.

Using Wireframes to Streamline Your Development Process Creating a wireframe is one of the first steps you should take before designing a website. A wireframe helps you organize and simplify the elements and content within a website and is an essential tool in the development process. A wireframe is basically a visual representation of content layout in a website design. The wireframe acts as a prototype that shows the placement of page features, such as header, footer, content, sidebars, and navigation. It also specifies the placement of the elements within these content areas.
