American Football - 4-3 Charlie Play. 1412.6621v3.pdf. Datenanalyse für das Gemeinwohl. “Big Data” und “Data Science” — das sind Begriffe, die in der deutschen Zivilgesellschaft nicht unbedingt positiv besetzt sind.

Datenanalyse für das Gemeinwohl

In den großen Zeitungen wird in der Regel über die (zugegeben wichtigen) Themen Datenschutz und Algorithmenethik gesprochen. Das Potential mit Datenanalyse gemeinnützige Anwendungen zu schaffen wird hierzulande aber bislang kaum aufgegriffen. Das ist schade, denn in anderen Teilen der Welt sorgen Organisationen wie DataKind, BayesImpact und die “Data Science for Social Good” Stipendien in Chicago und Atlanta für soziale Innovationen. Diese Organisationen stellen gemeinnützigen Organisationen Prognoseverfahren zur Verfügung, wie sie sonst in der Online-Werbung und beim algorithmischen Handeln an der Börse eingesetzt werden.

ReSRC · Programming, Motherfucker - Do you speak it? The Caro-Kann: Modern Times. In part 1 of this series on the Caro-Kann, I discussed the earliest beginnings of the opening, the origin of the name, and its first adoption by top players.

The Caro-Kann: Modern Times

It is always fascinating to learn about the beginnings of these openings, which today seem well-worn and familiar. Today let's learn about how the Caro-Kann developed over the years, and next week we will learn about the various ways grandmasters have evolved to oppose it. Stevey's Blog Rants: Settling the OS X focus-follows-mouse debate. I recently switched to using OS X full-time for all my client-side computing.

Stevey's Blog Rants: Settling the OS X focus-follows-mouse debate

Still using Linux on the backends, of course, at home and at work, but I now use Macs for my client machines. I'm not a Mac fanboy. I'm sort of a wannabe Mac fanboy, but I'm not familiar enough with the OS yet (either as a user or as a programmer) to really rave about it. How to organize your Meteor.js app. I love Meteor.js.

How to organize your Meteor.js app

One of the more fun and simultaneously frustrating aspects of the platform is the lack of any standards when it comes to 'How to organize your Meteor.js app'. Having worked on apps from scratch (green-fielded) and having taken over existing apps, I start to realize why having good file names and a proper file structure can really help. Spacebars Template file naming The established project I recently took over had the file naming part of organizing a meteor app wrong. When I go into a folder call client/views/nav and I am looking for a file named navGuest.html so I can fix up some css classes, but all I saw were a bunch of files that started with role_user.html, role_guest.html, etc. The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)

You know, the one you're supposed to put in HTML and you never quite know what it should be? Angularjs - is there good Angular Js + rails backend tutorial? Adding computed properties to Meteor data. Meteor has a very light-weight model layer compared to web frameworks like Rails.

Adding computed properties to Meteor data

In fact, depending on your definition of what a model layer is, it might not have one at all. It stays very close to MongoDB, providing plain JavaScript object representations of your MongoDB documents. Often you'll want your Collection objects to have some behavior or computed properties. Inheritance and the prototype chain. JavaScript is a bit confusing for developers experienced in class-based languages (like Java or C++), as it is dynamic and does not provide a class implementation per se (the class keyword is introduced in ES6, but is syntactical sugar, JavaScript remaining prototype-based).

Inheritance and the prototype chain

When it comes to inheritance, JavaScript only has one construct: objects. Each object has an internal link to another object called its prototype. That prototype object has a prototype of its own, and so on until an object is reached with null as its prototype. null, by definition, has no prototype, and acts as the final link in this prototype chain. While this is often considered to be one of JavaScript's weaknesses, the prototypal inheritance model is in fact more powerful than the classic model.
