As if programmers didn't have enough to be leery of the new Microsoft openness approach is quite unsettling. Just when we were positive and secure in the belief that MS would be the last kid on the block to share, they create Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
The folks over at Google have hit another winner.If you have'nt been introduced to Google's Closure Compiler you missing out on a great tool.To put it in Google's own words:
When troubleshooting code I try to follow a set path in order to quickly isolate the issue. The problem is that I’m just as guilty as others at trying to shortcut the process. One major trap I fall into is the time consuming ‘wandering’ into certain parts of the code and encountering a road block by not staying on the original path. In doing this I often end up chasing problems that are caused by other problems that need to be addressed first. With that being said I have developed a good instinct for finding problem code.
"The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners.
I admit I have considered this same thing. I had even prepared my IP tables and firewalls to cut off all but regional IP traffic. I never implemented it but I was close. In hindsight I realize it was just a knee-jerk response to constant kicks at my server door.
A proposal is being considered that would require all users of computers, smart phone devices, and other internet connected devices, to obtain a license. As is, the proposal would require those users to pass a test and be licensed in order to own and operate such equipment. The licensing process would involve a written test and a practical exam.
Lately there has been a lot of buzz about 'Do Not Track'. For those that don't know, Do not Track or DNT is a little message your browser tells each website before it starts loading on your computer screen.
In the evolution of mobile technology internet connectivity has had a roller coaster ride. Not just the actual connecting but the browsing and searching for information. Over the years I’ve noticed a tug-a-war going on between those creating internet sites that are mobile friendly and mobile OS’s trying to render content and deliver internet browsing in a mobile format.
Web programming can be both exciting and foreboding at the same time. Most programmers spend their time chasing bugs in other code and platforms while tying together newly created code with existing code content. While it is good to be excellent in one particular thing, often, in programming you have to work with and consider several platforms to integrate what you’re doing.
