Changes Are Headed For Toronto's Bitmaker Labs (Good Changes) Toronto’s Bitmaker Labs has thus far been known for its $9,000 Ruby on Rails course and an unfortunate Ontario Ministry of Training investigation last year that didn’t accomplish much, other than shutting the coding school down for a few days. It’s been about a year and a half since the school launched with five cofounders. Since then three of them left to pursue other things, including a competing coding school in Toronto called BrainStation. But as CMO Sean Power told us, Bitmaker Labs is about to go into high gear with a few new announcements. Today it announced that it has boosted its course selection to six and is planning on moving to a new 8000 sq. ft office complex at 220 King street west in Toronto. It also made a few important hires, including Power himself, a startup advisor and internationally published author, as well as a PhD candidate in the education space, Danielle Becket.

You could touch every single iPhone, from the first up to the iPhone 5, iPads ranging from first generation to fourth and we’ve lately added two iPad minis.

Integrating Google Maps into Your Web Applications Sci-fi author Duncan Munro's 1950 short story "U-Turn" includes a well-known passage that reads, "May you live in interesting times." I haven't actually read the story, therefore can't say whether it was meant as a blessing or a curse. Regardless, it seems particularly applicable to those of us steeped in Web development, as the last ten years have truly proved to be a whirlwind of excitement.

App Inventor for Android App Inventor for Android is an open-source web application originally provided by Google, and now maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). App Inventor and the projects on which it is based are informed by constructionist learning theories, which emphasizes that programming can be a vehicle for engaging powerful ideas through active learning. As such, it is part of an ongoing movement in computers and education that began with the work of Seymour Papert and the MIT Logo Group in the 1960s and has also manifested itself with Mitchel Resnick's work on Lego Mindstorms and StarLogo.[1][2] Implementation[edit] App Inventor includes: TIOBE Software: Tiobe Index TIOBE Index for January 2016 January Headline: Java is TIOBE's Programming Language of 2015!
