  Why 0.1+0.2 != 0.3

In programming languages such as JavaScript, c/c++, Java and Matlab, you will find that you will get unexpected result when doing float point calculation. For example, when calculating 0.1 + 0.1, you will not get 0.3: > 0.1 + 0.2 == 0.3 false > 0.1 + 0.2 0.30000000000000004 Don't be surprised of this result, this is the end result of IEEE 754 standard, float point number cannot be accurately represented according to IEEE 754 because: No enough memory is allocated for representing the num...

  Which one has a worse reputation, JavaScript or PHP?

There has a been a lot of criticism of PHP over being a badly designed programming language. JavaScript seems quite a similar language with loose-typing and flexible array declarations/memory management, but is widely adopted by industry leaders such as Google. Google even has a JavaScript style guide. Many people think that PHP has a worse reputation than JavaScript. Carlos Ribeiro gave his analysis on a high level which doesn't touch the language syntax. Attributing JavaScript success to it be...

  Which one cost more in development : Android vs iOS

As for which platform has more development cost, there are many different views. Using Android we no need to spend money on an expensive Mac computer, iOS test machine and $99 year fee for each developer account. While developing iOS apps does not require much testing, screen adaption, debug and script compatibility considerations. Let's see a few views shared by some developers.

  10 Reasons Why Visual Basic is Better Than C#

Visual Basic is a better programming language than Visual C#. Who says so? This article! Here are 10 reasons why you should always choose VB over C#. 1 – “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose” This is a quotation from Gertrude Stein’s 1922 play Geography and Plays. However, the poetry wouldn’t work in C#, because – unforgivably – it’s a cASe-SeNSitIvE language. This is madness! Before I start ranting, let me just acknowledge that case-sensitivity confers one (and only one) ad...

  Application vs Database Programming

A few years ago, I had a problem.  A database routine for processing bulk payments for LedgerSMB that was humming along in my test cases was failing when tested under load with real data prior to implementation.  Some testing showed that while it ran fine with small numbers of inputs, it eventually slowed way down as the number of inputs rose.  Andrew Sullivan, who was also on the project through a different company, suggested it was something called a "cache miss" because I...

  “Native vs Web” Is Total Bullshit

The web is dead. HTML5 is the be-all end-all of the future. Users are spending more time on apps and less time on the web. You can do anything on the web that you can in a native app. Yawn. Here’s how I feel whenever I hear/read anything about the overplayed “Native Versus Web” argument: It’s not an either-or decision Why aren’t we still arguing over “Print vs Digital”? Well, because (most) people understand that each medium has its place in this world, and as it turns out, ...

  Comparing Floating Point Numbers, 2012 Edition

We’ve finally reached the point in this series that I’ve been waiting for. In this post I am going to share the most crucial piece of floating-point math knowledge that I have. Here it is:[Floating-point] math is hard.You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly hard it is. I mean, you may think it’s difficult to calculate when trains from Chicago and Los Angeles will collide, but that’s just peanuts to floating-point math.Seriously. Each time I think that I’ve wr...
