Today's Question:  What weekend projects have you created?

### Gaussian Blur Algorithm

Usually, image processing software will provide blur filter to make images blur. There are many algorithms to implement blur, one of them is called Gaussian Blur algorithm. It utilizes Gaussian distribution to process images. This article is to introduce Gaussian Blur algorithm, you will find this a simple algorithm. In fact, it is a kind of data smoothing which can be used in many situations. 1. Gaussian Blur theory The so called blur can be understood as taking a pixel as the average value of...

### Implementation of Tower of Hanoi

The Tower of Hanoi is a mathematical game or puzzle. It consists of three rods, and a number of disks of different sizes which can slide onto any rod. The puzzle starts with the disks in a neat stack in ascending order of size on one rod, the smallest at the top, thus making a conical shape. The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire stack to another rod, obeying the following rules: Only one disk may be moved at a time. Each move consists of taking the upper disk fro...

### Dividing any number By 9, 90, 900 and so on

The technique for Dividing any number by 9 mentally is simply to reduce a complex division to a very simple addition. The technique can be applied from both ends i.e. from right-most digit or from left-most digit. Dividing by 9 into a mixed number from right-most digit uses the Divisibility Rules for 9: 1.     First, add all the digits together and divide by 9, keeping in mind the whole number and the remainder. 2.     Write the remainder o...

### What I learned interviewing with Google

Over the last few weeks I’ve been interviewing with Google for a job doing primarily JavaScript development. I didn’t end up getting the job but I thought I would share the process of interviewing for Google as it was both very exciting and a humbling experience. I can’t reveal everything as I’m under a few NDAs. I’m not going to mention the products or teams that I was interviewing for but you may be able to guess. For those that don’t know me, I’m an independent developer/d...

### Will We Need Teachers Or Algorithms?

Editor’s note: This is Part III of a guest post written by legendary Silicon Valley investor Vinod Khosla, the founder of Khosla Ventures. In Part I, he laid the groundwork by describing how artificial intelligence is a combination of human and computer capabilities In Part II, he discussed how software and mobile technologies can augment and even replace doctors. Now, in Part III, he talks about how technology will sweep through education. In my last post, I argue...

### How Integers Should Work (In Systems Programming Languages)

My last post outlined some of the possibilities for integer semantics in programming languages, and asked which option was correct. This post contains my answers. Just to be clear: I want practical solutions, but I’m not very interested by historical issues or backwards compatibility with any existing language, and particularly not with C and C++. We’ll start with: Premise 1: Operations on default integer types return the mathematically correct result or else trap. This is the same pre...

### Gcd Algorithm with JavaScript

How to find the greatest common divisor between two integers? We may encounter this problem frequently in interviews or other occasions. An efficient metho to find gcd is the Euclidean algorithm, which uses the division algorithm in combination with the observation that the gcd of two numbers also divides their difference: divide 48 by 18 to get a quotient of 2 and a remainder of 12. Then divide 18 by 12 to get a quotient of 1 and a remainder of 6. Then divide 12 by 6 to get...

### Permutation algorithm with JavaScript

In secondary school, we have learned permutation. Basically, for n numbers, the number of permutations for these n numbers can be calculated to n! which is called 'n factorial'. But to display all the permutations on the screen, we need to use a recursive function. The problem is how to write this function.  Next I write a program to display the permutations for n numbers with JavaScript. First, we need to understand that from these n numbers, we can first take any one number from it, and t...
