Beyond Dropbox: Build Your OwnCloud (Open-Source Web-based Personal Storage) | ZDNet

Beyond Dropbox: Build Your OwnCloud (Open-Source Web-based Personal Storage) | ZDNet | Coding Adventures | Scoop.it

"Everyone likes personal cloud services, like Apple’s iCloud, Google Music, and Dropbox. But, many of aren’t crazy about the fact that our files, music, and whatever are sitting on someone else’s servers without our control."

 

OwnCloud allows you to set up your own cloud server for file-sharing, music-streaming, and calendar, contact, and bookmark sharing project.

 

“OwnCloud offers the ease-of-use and cost effectiveness of Dropbox and box.net with a more secure, better managed offering that, because it’s open source, offers greater flexibility and no vendor lock in."

 

OwnCloud enables universal access to files through a Web browser or WebDAV. It also provides a platform to easily view and sync contacts, calendars and bookmarks across all devices and enables basic editing right on the Web.

 

Programmers will be able to add features to it via its open application programming interface (API).

Testing like the TSA - (37signals)

Testing like the TSA - (37signals) | Coding Adventures | Scoop.it

When developers first discover the wonders of test-driven development, it’s like gaining entrance to a new and better world with less stress and insecurity. It truly is a wonderful experience well worth celebrating. But internalizing the benefits of testing is only the first step to enlightenment.

Knowing what not to test is the harder part of the lesson.

Lucky to be a Programmer : Gustavo Duarte

Many programmers relate to this, but others are taken aback when they hear it. I think it’s because institutions are so good at squeezing the fun out of everything. It’s appalling for example how schools can take the most vibrant topics and mangle them into formulaic, mediocre slog. And so it is for programming. Many corporations turn an inherently rewarding experience into something people just barely stomach in exchange for a paycheck.

That’s too bad. Few things are better than spending time in a creative haze, consumed by ideas, watching your work come to life, going to bed eager to wake up quickly and go try things out. I am not suggesting that excessive hours are needed or even advisable; a sane schedule is a must except for occasional binges. The point is that programming is an intense creative pleasure, a perfect mixture of puzzles, writing, and craftsmanship.

(A mandatory disclaimer: the last time I really studied electronics was way back in high school, so this article focuses more on the programming aspects, rather than the electronic side of things.)

javascript game of tron in 219 bytes

javascript game of tron in 219 bytes | Coding Adventures | Scoop.it

With some coworkers, we challenged each other to write the smallest possible game of tron in javascript (an exercice known as javascript golfing).

This page explains our final version (219 bytes). We initially worked alone but then exchanged ideas and tricks, so erling & mathewsb deserve most of the credits!

our code was originally 226 bytes, but "Cosmologicon" pointed out a way to save three whole bytes, bringing us to 223 bytes.

With p01, we then came up with a way to save another 11 bytes (making the game 212 bytes). He also suggested keeping track of score, which takes 9 bytes but is totally worth it!

skrounge found a way to save 2 more bytes, brining the game to 219 bytes.

Metrics - Building Clickatron

Metrics - Building Clickatron | Coding Adventures | Scoop.it
One of the core product features of bitly has always been metrics. Unlike tools like google analytics, bitly metrics have always been a way to gather website metrics when you don’t control the website. Want metrics for a book you wrote on Amazon? Use a bitly link. Want metrics for a blog post? You can use a bitly link for that, too. As bitly usage has grown, one of the systems that has evolved several times along the way is our metrics platform. Originally implemented as log files with a hierarchical timestamp key, later metrics data was loaded into a flat mysql table. A subsequent revision moved that data into a cluster of tokyocabinet servers. That was eventually supplemented with some additional metrics datasets in mongodb. By early 2011 we were using 3 different metrics systems, and had outgrown 3 others. We started with a set of goals to build a scalable time series database application, which we now call Clickatron.

160+ RSS Feeds For Web-Designers And Developers | SpyreStudios

160+ RSS Feeds For Web-Designers And Developers | SpyreStudios | Coding Adventures | Scoop.it

Many of you who know me personally, have been reading this blog or one my previous blogs or have been following me on Twitter for a while, know I'm a self-taught web-designer. I didn’t study design, arts, coding or whatever, and I never attended CSS 101 in college. Instead, I read blogs, tutorials and books.

Becoming a web-designer can be quite a time-consuming process so I figured I’d make a list of all the RSS feeds I am subscribed to and read on a regular basis. The sites on this list are all related to web design, graphic design, development, CSS, HTML, WordPress, business and freelancing, creativity and inspiration.
