Time is of the essence.

A Few Short Words

As a fan of word games, and dabbling a little with Html and JavaScript, I made this little app (a few months ago), to drill on 2 letter words.  Sometime I’ll add the 3 letter words and more.

I played around with augment, es5 shim sham, and require.js, and of course jQuery and jQueryUI.  I probably made a bit of a mess, but its just for fun.

Of course it comes with unit tests in qUnit. If its good enough for jQuery, its good enough for my toys.

Play it here.

As usual, also available on GitHub.

Now back to WPF till enough people ask me for 3 letters.

Because Everybody Likes PacMan

Fellow Lab49er Domenic Denicola shows 2 ways to put a JS app on your desktop with Node.js topped off by a demo of HTML PacMan running as a desktop app.  Now it’s a browser app without annoying permission requests, cross site capability, no version support worries, and some other goodies the frameworks provide.

Company Picnic

The Lab49 picnic was a blast.  Sun, lake, beach, food, beer and volleyball.  Some cute kids came too.  I highly recommend the bus and my son keeps talking about the ski trip, but he gave this one a big thumbs up too.

Quote of the Week

MejerTShirtOn Erik Meijer:  “I disagree with …(insert RX duality criticism here)… but of course, he’s right.”

I wish I could be so confident to find a disagreement, but I bet I’d come to the same conclusion.

Architecture, Architecture, Architecture

Six glowing reviews for Release It! A couple Lab49ers, including who has met the author, think the book is worthy.  And it has a Jolt Award.  Interestingly, more than one Lab49er pans the Pragmatic Bookshelf in general.

Of couse GoF and PoEAA are must reads.  IMHO anyone who hasn’t read these yet must be a bit wet behind the ears.  After that Domain Driven Design is highly recommended, with an interesting critique on “Who should drive paradigms”.

On Agile:  Practices of an Agile Developer, Ship It!

Also, Continuous Delivery.

My reading list just got longer.

Lady Java

Great to see that JAVA now has its own anthem.

AC_Run_Content javascript wrapper used to load Flex applications

I don’t know what it means either, but there’s a few people @Lab who do.  It has something to do with Flex and Wmode, whatever that is…

HTML5

Boilerplate or Reset.
