Language: Introducing Knowledge-Based Programming

Language: Introducing Knowledge-Based Programming
Introducing knowledge-based programming... Designed for the new generation of programmers, the Wolfram Language has a vast depth of built-in algorithms and knowledge, all automatically accessible through its elegant unified symbolic language. Scalable for programs from tiny to huge, with immediate deployment locally and in the cloud, the Wolfram Language builds on clear principles—and 25+ years of development—to create what promises to be the world's most productive programming language.

Creating an animated 3D CSS cube using 3D transforms Last week WebKit included the much anticipated (at least on my part) 3D transforms in its latest nightly build, announced practically alongside the awesome Snow Stack demo that provides a 3D interface for browsing Flickr images (use left, right and space-bar). Today the Surfin Safari blog has updated with some more exciting demos, including “Morphin Power Cubes” and “Poster Circle”. It is now possible to create all sorts of crazy three-dimensional and animated user interfaces; the power comes largely in -webkit-perspective and a number of updated transforms–adapted to incorporate the Z axis.

Radix sort In computer science, radix sort is a non-comparative integer sorting algorithm that sorts data with integer keys by grouping keys by the individual digits which share the same significant position and value. A positional notation is required, but because integers can represent strings of characters (e.g., names or dates) and specially formatted floating point numbers, radix sort is not limited to integers. Radix sort dates back as far as 1887 to the work of Herman Hollerith on tabulating machines.[1] Most digital computers internally represent all of their data as electronic representations of binary numbers, so processing the digits of integer representations by groups of binary digit representations is most convenient.

Pixel Press Floors - Pixel Press > Pixel Press Floors app – You’ll need an iPad to “Create-from-Paper” and play – and you can create directly in the app just like you would on paper using touch or a stylus with our “Draw-In-App” tools. > Paper, Pencil & our Sketch Guide (optional) – Print the free Sketch Guide at home (visit projectpixelpress.com to download the PDF) and take a picture of what you create with your iPad’s camera. The glyphs you draw (for example an “x” is a spike and a “+” is a coin) are transformed into gameplay objects. From there you can apply a design to the element, test it, and play it.

Getting Started - Educational Materials This section: Next Section(s): Learn by Example One of the best ways to learn how to program in a new language is by looking at lots and lots of example programs. Create an Instant Messaging app using Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) Instructions: 1. Install the app from Google Play. 2. Download the server application project from here.

This isn't what it promises to be. There's still a huge amount of syntactic sugar, imperative form of programming words and I'm guessing no concept if synonyms. may be inviting to vb/Pascal programmers who drag and drop most of the code anyway, but I can hardly see this appealing to people with no programming interest. by mrsopacua Sep 14
