How 8 Entrepreneurs Came Up With Their Game Changing Startup Idea. Whether it’s closing a round of funding or an acquisition, we always hear about the successes of startups. However, we rarely hear about their beginnings. No, I don’t mean how they launched, but the very start of how the idea of some of today’s hottest startups were conceived. With that being said, here are eight startup stories we’ve compiled on how entrepreneurs came up with their innovative startup ideas. Kiip While on a long-haul flight to Singapore connecting to Hong Kong, Kiip Founder Brian Wong noticed a lot of people were playing games on their touchscreen devices. Rap Genius During the summer of 2009, Yale students Mahbod Moghadam, Ilan Zechory, and Tom Lehman were hanging out in a East Village living room when Lehman asked Moghadam the meaning of a Cam’ron lyric. WhatsApp After buying an iPhone in January 2009, WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum noticed new market opportunities in the seven-month old App Store.

“Jan was showing me his address book,” recalls Fishman. Kogi Truck Reddit. Young Entrepreneur Interview: How This High School Student Launched His Wearable Tech-Startup With No Funding. The amazing thing about being an entrepreneur is that neither age nor experience are required to be successful. Sure they come in handy, but this high school student and successful tech-startup founder proves that creating a company while balancing high school homework before he can legally drive is absolutely possible. So if you think creating a startup is too hard, you should read what this brilliant kid has to say. Eddy Zhong is a 16-year-old high school junior at the Bromfield School in Harvard, Massachusetts. Three years ago, while attending Startup Weekend in New York by accident, not knowing it was primarily for adults, Eddy fell in love with the idea of starting a new business and Blanc was born, a tech-startup that makes the Spark smart-watch, a watch that tracks your movement and wakes you if it detects you are asleep.

Since then, Eddy has found inspiration from several other successful entrepreneurs and the drive to succeed from a past experience. “No one takes you seriously.

Overview of the four main programming paradigms In this section we will characterize the four main programming paradigms, as identified in Section 1.2. As the main contribution of this exposition, we attempt to trace the basic discipline and the idea behind each of the main programming paradigms. With this introduction to the material, we will also be able to see how the functional programming paradigm corresponds to the other main programming paradigms. 2.1.

San Francisco's epic 'housing crisis' - Business Insider.

How Burrowing Owls Lead To Vomiting Anarchists (Or SF’s Housing Crisis Explained) The Santa Clara Valley was some of the most valuable agricultural land in the entire world, but it was paved over to create today’s Silicon Valley. This was simply the result of bad planning and layers of leadership failure — nobody thinks farms literally needed to be destroyed to create the technology industry’s success. Today, the tech industry is apparently on track to destroy one of the world’s most valuable cultural treasures, San Francisco, by pushing out the diverse people who have helped create it. At least that’s the story you’ve read in hundreds of articles lately. It doesn’t have to be this way. But everyone who lives in the Bay Area today needs to accept responsibility for making changes where they live so that everyone who wants to be here, can. The alternative — inaction and self-absorption — very well could create the cynical elite paradise and middle-class dystopia that many fear.

I’ve spent time looking into the city’s historical housing and development policies. Why? No. Refactoring. Stereotype: Was ist typisch deutsch? - Typisch deutsch? Die europäischen Nachbarn halten die Deutschen vor allem für gut organisiert, akkurat und leicht pedantisch. Das ergab eine Studie der GfK Marktforschung, in der rund 12 000 Bürger in Deutschland, Frankreich, Großbritannien, Italien, den Niederlanden, Österreich, Polen, Russland, Tschechien und der Türkei befragt wurden. Zuverlässigkeit, Umgänglichkeit und Geselligkeit sind Eigenschaften, die oft in den Deutschen gesehen werden. Jeder fünfte Niederländer beschreibt die Deutschen als nette und freundliche Menschen, immerhin ein Fünftel der Franzosen betont die Partnerschaft mit den europäischen Nachbarn. In Russland geben acht Prozent der Menschen an, dass sie die Deutschen mögen. Allerdings sind es aber vor allem die Deutschen selbst, die dazu neigen, sich in übertriebenem Maße Sorgen zu machen und vor allem die eigenen Schwächen sehen: So antworten rund sieben Prozent der Bundesbürger auf die Frage „Was ist deutsch?

There’s a new way for advertisers to track you. And there’s almost nothing you can do to stop it. It’s called Canvas Fingerprinting, and it can be found on almost five percent of the top 100,000 websites, from Whitehouse.gov, to dating site Plenty Of Fish. It allows websites to ‘fingerprint’ the browsers of their users, and then uniquely identify (within a significant margin of error.

We’ll talk about this later) and track them without the use of browser cookies. The privacy concerns surrounding Canvas Fingerprinting are many, and severe. Perhaps the biggest concern surrounding it is how it can easily defeat the ‘do not track’ features baked in to many modern browsers. Canvas Fingerprinting is evil. How Canvas Fingerprinting Works The way it works is simple. The specific configuration of your computer – graphics card, graphics driver used, browser and operating system – create small, unique changes in how this line is drawn. ‘… But That Doesn’t Sound Very Unique!’ That depends, really.

Writing a monad tutorial that makes sense to you (as the writer) but nobody else seems to be a rite of passage. Silly monad tutorial are so overdone that there's even a running joke about how Monads Are Like Burritos. So despite the fact that Monads are not a good choice as topic for your first Haskell blog entry, I'm going to be a little audacious here and make Monads the topic of my first Haskell blog entry. My previous "X Demystified" entries (React Demystified, LL and LR Parsing Demystified) have been well-received, which is allowing me to believe that I am good at explaining things. Monads are a Design Pattern Our first task is to understand what a monad even is. The answer is actually pretty simple. It's really important to understand that the pattern is what makes a monad a monad. The best analogy I can think of is operator overloading in C++. The Monad Abstraction: bind ("and then") How the Monad pattern works.

Choosing a JavaScript MVC Framework. So you love the way single-page apps like Gmail and Trello feel, but aren’t sure where to start. Maybe your JavaScript code has become disorganized enough that you are convinced to try one of the numerous JavaScript MVC libraries/frameworks on your next project but aren’t sure which one to choose. I’m writing a book on single-page apps so I’ve pretty much “read the internet” on the topic. I’ll attempt to provide some not so obvious insights to help you make your decision. Introduction The frameworks discussed are the ones with the most traction at present: AngularJS, Backbone, Ember, and Knockout. Each project is examined from several different perspectives including community, leadership, maturity, size, dependencies, interoperability, inspiration, philosophy, and features.

Community A good indicator of the health of any open source project is its community. You wouldn’t want to make your framework decision on this data alone but it certainly gives you a sense of which frameworks are: Size.

I thought it’d be nice (and a bit of a reassuring cliché) to do a roundup of the Hard Lines story so far, and take a look at some of the interesting facts and figures that have come to light since we launched Hard Lines in June of this year. Of course this would be redundant without some sort of insight from me that wasn’t revealed before (or has simply occurred to me in the time since the original posts) so you’ll still learn a few things I’d hope. It’s been a pretty amazing few months, and I’m sure there are plenty more to come. The power of twitter has been fully revealed to me, the Android market has been dipped into with a tentative toe, and all kinds of fun, interesting and friendly people have been met.

Neural networks and deep learning. In the last chapter we saw how neural networks can learn their weights and biases using the gradient descent algorithm. There was, however, a gap in our explanation: we didn't discuss how to compute the gradient of the cost function.

That's quite a gap! In this chapter I'll explain a fast algorithm for computing such gradients, an algorithm known as backpropagation. The backpropagation algorithm was originally introduced in the 1970s, but its importance wasn't fully appreciated until a famous 1986 paper by David Rumelhart, Geoffrey Hinton, and Ronald Williams. That paper describes several neural networks where backpropagation works far faster than earlier approaches to learning, making it possible to use neural nets to solve problems which had previously been insoluble. Today, the backpropagation algorithm is the workhorse of learning in neural networks. This chapter is more mathematically involved than the rest of the book. The reason, of course, is understanding.
