A Visual History Of The Last 20 Years Of Open Source Code

A Visual History Of The Last 20 Years Of Open Source Code | computing | Scoop.it

We were able to visualize the percentage of total commits in a given quarter for the top 16 programming languages from 1993 until today. We hope you’ll find this image—a provocative pattern of dips and spikes—to be as interesting as we do. It truly shows how dynamic the world of programming is. We’ve also included a few graphs on other interesting data points: total number of languages by year, average lines of code per commit, and tracking which languages influenced the development of others

eXtreme Manufacturing
The term eXtreme Manufacturing (XM) was coined by Team WIKISPEED, a non-profit car manufacturer, to describe how it manufactures automobiles combining elements from the Scrum development process, eXtreme Programing and Object-Oriented architecture. Blending these three philosophies, WIKISPEED invented a new manufacturing process that can shorten time-to-market, reduce labor costs and spur innovation.

TypeScript: An Alternative to JavaScript

TypeScript: An Alternative to JavaScript | computing | Scoop.it

JavaScript is a nice language but it does not offer static type checking and object oriented programming. There are ways to simulate object oriented behavior but still there is no in-built way. Hence things gets really complicated while developing large scale applications in JavaScript.

To deal with this situation, developers have come up with new languages which offer more functionality and features but they still get compiled into JavaScript only. So, you can develop applications and games in languages other than JavaScript but they will still run on web browsers as the compiled output will be a JavaScript only.

Several languages have been built upon JavaScript including some famous ones like coffee script, type script, Dart, etc. In this blog, we will talk about TypeScript.

TypeScript is to JavaScript as C++ is to C

TypeScript is to JavaScript as C++ is to C | computing | Scoop.it

Or is it? Do you have an opinion?

I selected this title because that analogy helps me as I’m learning more about TypeScript. It has “truthiness”. But in a good way. It will help you understand the motivations behind TypeScript, and how its syntax and concepts relate to JavaScript syntax and concepts. 

It’s “truthiness”, because if you take that concept too literally, it breaks down. TypeScript makes some features easier than in JavaScript, but it doesn’t feel quite as revolutionary as the jump from C to C++ (or maybe I’m just older). TypeScript isn’t changing the techniques used in JavaScript, like the shift from procedural to object oriented programming from C to C++. It is making Object Oriented constructs easier, but they aren’t impossible in JavaScript.
