Publish What You Learn Advertisement I don’t think anyone can deny that the Web has changed the way people teach, learn, and do research. Of course, this doesn’t mean that everything we read online is true and accurate—far from it. But I believe that through honest discussion and objective collaboration, accurate and useful information is much more likely to be the end result of any educational endeavor. In the final week of November 2011, a smart group of developers1 launched a project called Move The Web Forward2, which you can read more about in Addy Osmani’s Smashing Magazine article3. For this post, I want to focus on one piece of advice given by those developers in that project, under the heading “Write4”. The advice is: Publish what you learn. As soon as I read that exhortation (which originated with this tweet5), I knew this was a project made by a group of people who cared about the Web and that they understand what it takes to move forward as developers, and as an industry.

Make Your Own Wi-Fi Hotspot - Testing Development Websites on Mobiles and Tablets Often you need to test a website on an tablet device such as an iPad using a local development machine’s web server. For whatever reason the available Wi-Fi when developing your site may be on another subnet or network entirely to you development machine (such as in an office environment). Situations like these call for a bit of creative thinking and a different approach, so if this is a problem you face here’s my take on a possible solution. My workplace has pretty strict networking arrangements in place as we work with Banks and government agencies. This is all well and good until you need to develop something for a mobile device and there's no way to connect a smart phone or tablet to your development machine over the network/Wi-Fi. Obviously this causes my team and I a few productivity roadblocks. Working with mobile and tablet websites carry there own set of problems and there is a range of tools available to solve many of these. Don't have Wi-Fi? Connectify What you’ll need Summary
ChromeOS In VirtualBox – Test Drive It | Ido's Blog In a lot of cases you wish to develop to the new Chromebook but don’t have the hardware or just want to be more productive while working on your 8-core linux box… In these cases, there is a good option to run the latest ChromeOS inside Virtualbox (or VMware if you have it). A quick reminder, Chromium OS (which is the open source version of ChromeOS) is a project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web. In our tutorial here we will use Chromium OS images. The steps to follow Download VirtualBox.You can build your own OS if you wish, just go to: chromium-os and read the details. Choose Linux and Ubuntu and click ‘Continue’. Next you need to set the memory – make sure to set an amount that you can devote to VirtualBox without killing your machine. The last part of this wizard is to choose the image file. Tips 3 Minutes Video Tutorial Share only with good friends: Like this:
10 Best Practices of Code Commenting & Formatting 15inShare Code commenting and formatting are all about code understandability. Code understandability is very relevant to code maintainability. Commenting Comments may be thought as part of the code, so they are really important. Use comments "as required".
RGB Explore This pages lets you play with the RGB scheme, combining red, green, and blue light to make any color. The sliders control the red green and blue lights, each ranging from 0 (off) to 255 (maximum). The intersecting rectangles show the result of adding the red, green, and blue light together -- any color can be created in this way. To make pure red, green, or blue light, just turn up that color, leaving the other two at 0. All at max (255) → white All at min (0) → black red + green → yellow red + blue → purple green + blue → turquoise Dark yellow -- make yellow, then reduce both red and green Orange -- make yellow, but more red, less green Light, pastel green -- make pure green, then turn up both red and blue some equally (going towards white) Light gray -- make white, then turn all three down a bit equally
DIY How To Hack A Hard-Drive To a Hidden Flash-Drive,LED Light,Cellphone Charg | Video « Samimy Hacks & Makes Khan Academy s “Internet of Things” Camera March 13, 2012 AT 12:11 am Here’s our Arduino based “Internet of Things” camera. It’s a simple remote monitoring using the Eye-Fi wireless SD card and Adafruit Data Logging Shield for Arduino. What makes this combination way cooler than just a normal SD card or a USB cable to a computer is all the infrastructure provided by the Eye-Fi service — not just transferring images to your computer, but pushing them to your smartphone, photo-sharing sites like Flickr, issuing email or Twitter notifications, etc. Read more… & code is on GitHub.

Setup a DIY Network ‘DropBox’ (aka PirateBox) PirateBox allows you to quickly setup a mobile wireless file sharing network. Basically, it’s a P2P file-sharing device that can turn any space into a temporary, but secure wireless file sharing network. Multiple users within range of the device can connect to the network without any log-in and immediately start downloading or uploading files via their computers or mobile devices. The PirateBox is made up of a wireless router and light-weight Linux server connected to a USB hard drive. Popular File Server Projects: Comments are closed. Fireflies in a Jar This is a simple project that uses NE-2 neon bulbs in a group of 'relaxation oscillators.' In essence, an RC circuit charges a capacitor at a rate determined by a resistor and discharges the cap though a neon bulb to start the process over. The effect is a blinking lamp. With a group of these oscillators you get multiple blinking bulbs and the effect is similar to fireflies. Put them into a jar and Bob's your uncle. The neon lamps operate at 90v (+/-) and so a half wave rectifier on 110-120vac works well without over-voltage to the neon lamp. I made this project using junk parts and so I don't have part numbers or retail sources to offer. You will need: 10 1uf capacitors 150v 10 1 meg ohm resistors 1/4 watt 10 NE-2 neon lamps 2 Diodes (300v) Solder Wire Shrink Tubing (1/8 in) Power cord and male wall plug Tools: Wire cutters Soldering Iron Hot Glue Gun (Epoxy OK too) Rotary Tool (optional) Thinking Cap* * You will be dealing with AC line voltages, so think before you touch anything.
