That was my thought. I'm too busy writing real code (and posting on Slashdot) to be on their list.
But it only works if you participate.......which might explain Slashdot.
I'd agree for the most part. There are a lot of pretty cool front-end things going on and with Node makes your front-end and back-end language cohesive. Sure, there are plenty of other options, but there is something to be said for having guys who can transition from front to back or back to front.
Not the same as FPS, but try Professional Football Simulator. http://www.barcodegames.com/
The way I read it, the speed of light (in a vacuum) isn't changed by this article.....just the expected speed of photons through a gravitational field of large enough mass and enough distance.
That would have been an AWESEOME tricycle when I was a kid......I'd have been the envy of my whole neighborhood (and probably some nearby neighborhoods, too).
Single account to rule them all......the best approach is the separation of concerns (user management, server management, backup / restore, etc.) so that it is a lot harder to compromise everything.
I'd love a high-speed camera that is cheap so that I can analyze my bowling swing. Sure, I don't *need* 700fps, but this isn't always about *need*.
I would presume "real" ones. There apparently is still such a huge need for software engineers that they keep bringing in H1-B candidates. If a software engineer is unemplo.....errrr working at Starbucks, they aren't trying. Even if they took a pay cut from normal software engineer wages, it's bound to be more than Starbucks barristas make.
Is that more or less prestigious than a BA in art history or music theory or some such? I mean, sure, it has Science in it's name, but you might be better off with an Bachelors of Espresso Engineering. I hear Engineers make a lot of money.
I thought Greed was getting kickbacks from the lobbying groups to buy your support for questionable bills.
Not really. Its for wrapping Web apps in a container for a specific platform (in other words running "natively" outside of a browser -- technically, it's a customized browser wrapper around resources that are compiled into your code, not downloaded --- at least if you want to pass iOS certification).
That being said, the HTML application cache allows you to download a web app and store it for offline use. (http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/appcache/beginner/). You can hit a URL that uses the app cache, download the code, and then go into airplane mode and hit the same URL. The app will still work. (Obviously all data must be cached locally as well, since Web Services aren't available in airplane mode.)
Now hiring Swift programmers. 10 years experience required.
