Learning WebGL A year ago, at a biggest-ever, record-breaking HTML5 Meetup in San Francisco all about WebGL, I predicted we were a tipping point; I think I was right. Let’s take a look at 2014, a banner year for 3D on the web! A Year of Great Content Images in Cinder [Tutorials, Cinder] by @factoryfactory with images by @flight404 Written by Joshua Noble, with images by Robert Hodgin In this little tutorial we’re going to follow a path that starts with a file on the filesystem, say a PNG file, and ends with the image being drawn to the screen using OpenGL. // probably in your App's setup() method gl::Texture texture = loadImage( "image.jpg" ); // and in your App's draw() gl::draw( texture ); Even though that code simply loads and draws an image, there’s actually quite a lot going on behind the scenes. The first line creates a new OpenGL texture from the result of loadImage(). This function is used for loading the various image formats Cinder knows about, and can be used to read from files, URLs, resources and other sources, as we’ll see later.

Generation 5: Artificial Intelligence Repository - An Introducti An Introduction to Natural Language Processing <h3>An Introduction to Natural Language Processing</h3> A natural language is a language used in human culture such as Chinese, English or Bulgarian. They can be either spoken or written. So, what is Natural Language Processing? 2014 - 1st International Conference on e-Learning e-Education and Online Training 1st International Conference on e-Learning e-Education and Online Training E-Learning has been adopted and endorsed by some of the most prestigious universities. Stanford, Harvard and MIT are leading the way with highly successful online course programs, congruent with a prominent movement towards universal access to quality information and education. This movement has also disrupted the publishing industry, allowing many students to access valuable research through a myriad of open access journals.
Modern OpenGL tutorial (python) This tutorial is part of the vispy project which is an OpenGL-based interactive visualization library in Python. During this tutorial, only the vispy low-level interface (named gloo) will be used. A stand-alone gloo package is distributed along this tutorial but you should use the vispy.gloo package from the latest vispy distribution which is more up-to-date. Before diving into the core tutorial, it is important to understand that OpenGL has evolved over the years and a big change occured in 2003 with the introduction of the dynamic pipeline (OpenGL 2.0), i.e. the use of shaders that allow to have direct access to the GPU. Note ES is a light version of OpenGL for embedded systems such as tablets or mobiles.

11 iPad Apps For Better Collaboration - The BrainYard The Apple iPad's inherent mobility makes it an obvious weapon for efficient enterprise collaboration--provided you're armed with the right apps. 1 of 11 What makes a tablet a tool? Flash 8: projects for learning ... Macromedia Flash is fast becoming the Web's most widely used platform for creating rich media with animation and motion graphics, but mastering Flash isn't easy. Most entry-level books teach through simple examples that concentrate on either animation or scripting, but rarely both together. To get the most from Flash 8, you not only need to be proficient in programming/interface design, you need the creativity for story telling and the artistic insights to design fluid animation. Flash 8: Projects for Learning Animation and Interactivity teaches Flash design rather than simply Flash itself.
Python SQLAlchemy Tutorial Association Tables In our previous articles, we used an association table to model many-to-many relationships between tables, such as the relationship between Department and Employee. In this article, we are going to dive deeper into the association table concept and see how we can use it to further solve more complicated problems. DepartmentEmployeeLink and Extra […] Read More ORM Recap In one of the previous articles, we briefly went through an example database with two tables department and employee where one department can have multiple employees and one employee can belong to arbitrary number of departments. We used several code snippets to demonstrate the power of SQLAlchemy’s expression language and show how to […]
Permaculture Fast Track Special - Permaculture Design Course “The instructors here are top notch. They brought together a wide variety of ideas dealing with not only the treatment of the land and the design of farms, but with the treatment of people and the planet.” ~Brett M., Permaculture Designer Program Graduate: Understand The POWER Of Permaculture Design With This Intensive Look At Permaculture Fundamentals This FREE DVD was specifically created with video learning in mind. It is a very fast-paced and focused lecture that covers Chapters 1-3 of the “Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual”, and essentially explains the full process of permaculture design (biomimicry – the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems).
