Learn Ruby. It's what Perl 6 should have been — the good stuff from Perl, but cleaned up.
Then you can either go the devops/sysadmin route — both Puppet and Chef are written in Ruby — or you can go the Rails or Sinatra route and head towards web services development.
I agree wholeheartedly. Sadly, the handwriting for this has been on the wall for some time. I can only hope Debian's Iceweasel port of Firefox does not adopt this "feature".
This makes me start to wonder if there is a reduced capability browser -- something leaner and meaner, focused militantly on privacy and even going so far as to deliberately not support portions of HTML5 (e.g. DRM).
Coders of the world, here's a niche you could fill...
While I only code as a hobby, I started with TRS-80's running BASIC (yeah I was the guy hogging the computers on demo at the Radio Shack near you!), did an official BASIC course at my high school before PC's went mainstream. Then I got into ASM, COBOL, Pascal and C, all self taught. After that I got a life.
But if you think about it languages are just different ways of doing exactly the same thing. If you know how what your code is doing to the machine, then you can program in any language - it's just a case of learning the new syntax. Unfortunately too many people think a language is like some arcane spell where the words have to be said just right or the Computer God gets angry.
From what people are writing here, there are multiple definitions of "perfectly well". Someone in an above thread complains that capacitive screens require only the lightest touch, ensuring that they make mistakes when trying to use their fingernail to accurately press a specific pixel.
That, to me, says that the N900 and Neo900 do not have "touch" sensitive displays, they require pressure. I'm finding it improbable (and I'm willing to be proven wrong, but I'm increasingly sceptical as this videophilesque discussion continues) that the usual range of gestures we've come to know and, yes, love, are going to work nearly as well on that type of screen.
If I'm wrong and a light tap will always work, and a swipe will never be broken up into multiple gestures or ignored altogether, and so on, then I'd be delighted, albeit surprised the technology isn't being used anywhere else.
and how many young people were betrayed by their institutions and communities at the very start of their programming careers.
That knowledge of Pascal will last you a lifetime son.
RTMP is a Flash thing, not a W3C/HTML5 thing. The HTML5 thing that's being standardized (possibly defacto, I'm not sure) is HLS, but as of now only one desktop browser supports it. I'm not away of any desktop browsers that support RTMP.
"The newly published document shows how the agencies wanted to “exploit” app store servers – using them to launch so-called “man-in-the-middle” attacks to infect phones with the implants. A man-in-the-middle attack is a technique in which hackers place themselves between computers as they are communicating with each other; it is a tactic sometimes used by criminal hackers to defraud people. In this instance, the method would have allowed the surveillance agencies to modify the content of data packets passing between targeted smartphones and the app servers while an app was being downloaded or updated, inserting spyware that would be covertly sent to the phones."

This StackExchange question has a nice answer showing why you have to be at the equator to have a geostationary orbit...
I'm going to be honest, the more I read this discussion, the move I'm thrown back to old "debates" between advocates of rear projection and plasma TVs, and LCDs, all bemoaning the rise of the latter against such superior technologies as a TV that can only be viewed from one angle (and then not all at the same time), or a TV that requires all 4:3 content be shown in stretch-o-vision to avoid temporary burn-in issues. "But LCDs have a tiny bit of light visible when they're supposed to be black!" screams the videophiles, apparently oblivious to the fact that normal people rarely watch TV in rooms with no ambient light.
The resistive screen they're describing is clearly inferior to capacitive when applied to real world applications. Nobody in their right mind uses their cellphone to "paint" pictures. But everyone uses it to dial numbers, browse websites, and other activities that require a finger, or two, rather than a stylus.
But, hey, for the 0.01% of users who do actually use their cellphones more as an easel than a phone, I guess it might be useful.
The question is, would he have done this even if not running for president?
The answer is obviously yes, based on past behavior. Rand Paul has been one of the few people willing to go on record voting against things he does not agree with, instead of not voting at all.
So while of course some element of it is PR, that is not the core reason as to why he did this.
researchers say that's up for interpretation
What good is a law if it cannot let the government arrest Sandor silence anyone arbitrarily based on the prevailing political winds?
The one on the right looks practical for a parent with two kids. The one on the left looks expensive.
What, you buy cars purely on aesthetics?
Ok, no. I just realised my own misinterpretation.
Apologies, I blame someone else.
If you walk one mile south then you walk one mile south, not half a mile south then half a mile north.
Had the wording been, "You start walking south and continue for one mile" then I would agree with you, but it does not.
