US manufacturing: Why the hottest start-up is a factory

US manufacturing: Why the hottest start-up is a factory | JavaScript | Scoop.it
A growing number of people in their 20s are eschewing the typical path to riches through software start-ups and instead are turning to something a little more concrete.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 20, 2015 2:46 PM

 Cortex Composites, has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in investor funding, and just accepted its first million-dollar contracts.  Mixing various types of cement and webbing, to create a cheap but sturdy rollable cement. - The idea was that it could replace expensive mixing trucks in places that need just thin layers of cement. Drainage ditches, canal beds - mostly in developing countries in Africa - were the theoretical target.    For Mr Krasnoff the appeal of actually making something tangible was irresistible.   He's part of what's been called the "hardware renaissance" of companies looking to move beyond traditional software and into markets like wearable technologies and internet-connected devices.


"The barriers to entry for people looking to build a product are coming down - it's faster to build a prototype, social media is making it easier to market your product, and crowdfunding is making it easier to raise that first lump of money," says Noramay Cadena, the co-founder of Make in LA, Los Angeles' first hardware-focused incubator space.

Ms Cadena worked for 10 years at traditional manufacturing firms including Boeing before founding Make in LA, which has partnered with a manufacturer, NeoTech, to help its first class of firms get their products made.  She says changes in the industry - in which big firms such as Boeing and General Electric have consolidated their businesses to focus on core competencies - have opened the door a bit for quirky, smaller firms looking to enter the manufacturing space.


The third option - which has also captured younger builders - of building smaller, microfactories that can contract manufacture quickly and cheaply.  Jeremy Herrman, 28, and Nick Pinkston, 31, met in 2008 when they bonded of a shared love of tinkering and a mutual fascination with the still-nascent 3D printing industry.  The two realised that they were hearing the same complaint over and over again: it was difficult for hardware entrepreneurs to find manufacturers willing to take on their projects.  So at the beginning of 2014, the two launched Plethora - a fully vertically integrated factory in the Dogpatch neighbourhood of San Francisco, which they filled with advanced 3D printers, robots and traditional milling machines. They currently have 20 employees and have raised more than $5m (£3.2m) in funding.  -  Crucial to their effort is, of all things, software which the two custom built to allow hardware firms to upload their designs and get feedback on whether or not the object they were hoping to prototype could be built according to their specifications.  Mr Hermann says that he thinks there are a lot of young software engineers like him who have turned back to manufacturing, an industry he says "hasn't changed much in 100 years".

Using Polymer to Create Web Components

Using Polymer to Create Web Components | JavaScript | Scoop.it
Web Components aim to solve some of these complexities by providing a unified way to create new elements that encompass rich functionality without the need for all the extra libraries. Web components are comprised of four different specifications (Custom Elements, Templates, Shadow DOM and HTML imports) which are being fleshed out in the W3C. To bridge the gap and give developers access to this rich functionality now, Google has created the Polymer library which serves as a set of polyfills to bring the promise of Web Components to you today. Let's dive a little deeper into. What this library can do, is allow us to create reusable components that work as true DOM elements while helping to minimize our reliance on JavaScript to do complex DOM manipulation to render rich UI results.

Ionic Restify MongoDB - An End to End Hybrid App

Ionic Restify MongoDB - An End to End Hybrid App | JavaScript | Scoop.it

In this post, we are going to build an End to End Hybrid App, that has a server component and a client component. Our server will be built on top of Node js, with Restify as the server side framework and MongoDB as the data persistence layer. Our Client is a Hybrid App, built with Ionic framework. We then are going to deploy the Ionic app using PhoneGap Build service to generate a Native installer.

The App we are going to build is a Bucket List app. Here a user can register and login. Then s/he can create a few bucket list items. Which would eventually result in

JavaScript Memory Management Masterclass

Efficient JavaScript webapps need to be fluid and fast. Any app with significant user interaction needs to consider how to effectively keep memory usage down because if too much is consumed, a page might be killed, forcing the user to reload it and cry in a corner.

Automatic garbage collection isn't a substitute for effective memory management, especially in large, long-running web apps. In this talk we'll walk through how to master the Chrome DevTools for effective memory management.

Learn how to tackle performance issues like memory leaks, frequent garbage collection pauses, and overall memory bloat that can really drag you down.

Pub/Sub JavaScript Object

Pub/Sub JavaScript Object | JavaScript | Scoop.it

There are three keys to effective AJAX-driven websites: event delegation, History management, and effective app-wide communication with pub/sub. This blog employs of all of these techniques, and I thought I'd share the simplest of them: a tiny pub/sub module I use on this site.

If you've not used pub/sub before, the gist is that you publish to a topic and anyone can subscribe, much like the way a radio works: a radio station broadcasts (publishes) and anyone can listen (subscribes). This is excellent for highly modular web applications; it's a license to globally communicate without attaching to any specific object.
