Submission + - Former US Military Men Hold UFO Press Conference (allvoices.com)

ForgedArtificer writes: Former US military officials, including six generals, have held a UFO disclosure press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. During the two hour long conference, around 120 former military men related first-hand accounts, second-hand accounts and declassified documents detailing UFO sightings, many of which centered around the UFOs executing repeated "remote shutdowns" of US nuclear missiles.

Whether you think it's true, false, or somewhere in between, it's certainly interesting.

Submission + - Good C# Habits can Encourage Bad JavaScript Habits (enterprisejquery.com)

elijahmanor writes: Many people come to jQuery and believe that their knowledge of a previous classical language (C#, Java, etc) will help them be successful at client-side scripting. You can use your classical language skills to accomplish a large amount of functionality with jQuery. However, the more client-side code you write you will find yourself uncovering strange bugs because you didn’t take adequate time to learn JavaScript properly.

Submission + - How do I start contributing to Numerical Library?

An anonymous reader writes: I am an Applied Math grad student who knows a bit of Mathematics and a bit of programming. C++ being my first programming language, I am decent at it. I wish to start contributing to a numerical library with two purposes — contribute to open source and develop my C++ skills at the same time. I looked at the Boost libraries and joined the developer list. However, I have no idea on how to start contributing. I'm not an expert in template programming, having written only toy programs to understand that concept. I've used some of the OOP constructs like inheritance, but that too only for very small projects.

Could slashdotters please give me tips on how to get started on the contribution? Are there any other emerging numerical libraries to which I can contribute? Are there any other avenues where I can contribute to open source and improve programming skills?
