A programmer's editor, Sublime Text is a third option to the long-standing "Vi or Emacs" conundrum. Going beyond the basics of syntax highlighting and code folding, Sublime offers a litany of innovative and unique features. With version 3.0 just around the corner, I'm taking you on a tour of Sublime's most compelling features and add-on packages.

Introduction to UniMod Overview UniMod states for Unified Modeling. Long term project goal is to create unified methodology for application development process that will close the gap between Design and Development phases. Currently, UniMod project is focused on designing and implementing applications behavior. Already implemented approach adapts SWITCH-technology for UML notation. SWITCH-technology is also known as Automata-based Programming and has it's own Russian site SWITCH-technology suggests to model application behavior with a help of Structural Finite State Machine (FSM). There're a lot of tools and projects that uses FSM for describing application logic (IAR Systems visualSTATE, I-Logix Statemate, UniMod defines it’s own methodology for describing application behavior and delivers set of tools that consists of Java Finite State Machine Framework and Eclipse Plug-in. Runtime Framework allows creating interpreters of finite state machine model.

OSS Watch - independent expert advice on open source software Developer picks: 7 hot tools for agile development Atlassian Jira/ Jira Agile Atlassian's Jira is a popular tool for tracking product development, enabling teams to organize issues, assign work, and follow team activity. Its Jira Agile add-on facilitates key agile strategies, including the development of user stories, building of sprint backlogs, and visualization of team activities. Astrid Byro, head of project management at environmental services company Comanco, describes Jira as a "godsend" for Comanco's distributed technical team, which is spread across Qatar, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Virgin Media finds a new use for Atlassian's JIRA software UK communications provider Virgin Media is using JIRA project tracking software from Atlassian to monitor how its technical systems and applications are performing. JIRA is traditionally associated with software developers building new products, who use the application to capture and organise issues, work through action items, and stay up-to-date with team activity. Nick Good, Head of Technology Efficiency and Field Teams at Virgin Media, came across JIRA after carrying out a pilot project to identify opportunities to improve the company's IT systems. He asked around the company to find out if anybody knew of a program that would enable his team to record data in a way that could be easily monitored and analysed, and it emerged that a couple of the other development teams were using JIRA for bug tracking. Good therefore downloaded a trial version of the software, pumped the pilot data into it, and discovered that it was ideal for his team's needs.

Using Laravel 4 with the Vidahost Cloud Who this is for Being a web marketer first and reluctant code hack second, hosting priorities for me are: Ease, responsive support, solid backups and the ability to cope when something we do goes epicly viral on the telly. Consequently, the premise of the cloud is very appealing. We like elastic. Ordinary Hacks: By the end of this you'll be able to deploy Laravel code straight to The Interweb for your mum to see with a simple Git push. Hardcore Geeks: If you're deploying an app that performs critical tasks or has to take very large loads, you shouldn't read this. Having hunted for over a year to find a good hosting balance, we've ended up trying Vidahost on the recommendation of our cider pals at Zonkey Web. Before I get deluged with other hosting suggestions, here's some other stuff we tried: Owning a dedicated server - nope, fed up with it. Prerequisites We have a pretty ordinary local development environment and I'm assuming you're doing something very similar: 1. No manuals required.

Learning Reaper + Blender + Unity and Upcoming Project - Yoke Harn I haven’t been able to update my blog for the past 2 months. During this time I play 3 PS3 games. Uncharted 3, Tomb Raider (2013) and The Last Of Us day in and out. I finished 5 manga that is on my to-read list for 10 years. I’ve been working out tirelessly to get fit for my pre-wedding photoshoot in less than a month. None of the above is true btw, excpet the part I’m having my pre wedding photoshoot in 3 weeks and I’m still way off from my target weight. For real, during this period, I’ve picked up some knowledge and skill so I can work completely independent in building a mobile game. Some of you may know that I am a programmer and I love to draw stuff and design just about anything. When I begin to build game a while back, I knew something was missing in me to complete the game. I understand these 2 topics are different species all together and one should probably taking the degree to learn and master it, but I believe I can work something out by putting effort on it.
