  Here is why Mark Zuckerberg wears the same thing every day


Have you noticed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg always wears the same thing every day when he appears in the public? A grey t-shirt which is now a symbol of Mark Zuckerberg. The reason why he wears the same thing every day is "I want to clear my life to make it that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community" as what he said in an in-person public Q&A at the Facebook HQ in Menlo Park where he answered questions from people around th...

  User experience : Exception handling


Exception handling is the process of handling emergencies or unpredictable operational errors. The specific time of the occurrence of unexpected events and the actual consequences of the specific situation are difficult to predict. How to handle this unexpected crisis is also related to the user experience of your users. Let's first look at how some famous products deal with unexpected exception encountered by users:1. Goodyear tires can automatically expand when leaking.Tire blast is one of the...

  A JS1K competition demo for 2012


JS1K is a website which hosts some competitions to attract geeks from the world to create  JS apps which are less than 1K (1024 bytes). The object of this competition is to create a cool JavaScript "application" no larger than 1k. Starting out as a joke, the first version ended with a serious amount of submissions, prizes and quality.Recently, I revised a previous project of mine and compressed it to 1018 bytes and submitted it. It is an analog clock. The code is shown below:w=c.width;h=c...

  What I learned from Google - You Get Fifteen Years


four years ago I was in Mountain View, California, interviewing for a position with Google. It was an odd sort of interview.  Lots of puzzles, math-like challenges, and code.  Lots, and lots, and lots of code. What struck me at Google wasn’t the challenges.  Nor was it the office environment, the cafeteria, or the mini-swimming pool, all of which were impressive. No, what struck me were the people. All of the people I met — and I mean all of them — had this sort of early-t...

  On Erlang's Syntax


I first planned to release this text as an appendix entry for Learn You Some Erlang, but considering this feels more like editorial content and not exactly something for a reference text, I decided it would fit better as a blog post. Many newcomers to Erlang manage to understand the syntax and program around it without ever getting used to it. I've read and heard many complaints regarding the syntax and the 'ant turd tokens' (a subjectively funny way to refer to ,, ; and .), how annoying...

  What we still can’t do client-side


With the rise of all these APIs and the browser race to implement them, you’d think that currently we can do pretty much everything in JavaScript and even if we currently can’t due to browser support issues, we will once the specs are implemented. Unfortunately, that’s not true. There are still things we can’t do, and there’s no specification to address them at the time of this writing and no way to do them with the APIs we already have (or if there is a way, it’s unreasonably ...

  The golden age of the developer


There’s never been a better time to be a developer, says The Kernel’s technical editor. But in exchange for all the resources laid out in front of you, what are you doing to give back? There’s never been a better time to be a developer. Thanks to an unprecedented range of open-source software, learning resources and useful web services at our disposal, we can learn new languages, get help, collaborate with others and, if our ideas win traction, there’s now a multi...

  Web Design 101: Get Your Color Contrasts Right


Great web design is hard.  It requires imagination, a keen eye, and the ability to project ideas onto a, generally digital, medium.  In today’s world this calls for a conflation of both artist and technologist.  I am not one of these people. I am a technologist, but I am no artist (thankfully I know some great artists!). Nonetheless, I’ve always had a good eye for things that look good and for sites that look like they were built with an early version of Microsoft Front...

  7 big mistakes that make your layout a disaster


Even though the web design field has become a real industry, building a website is part art, part science. The design of a website may attract people but it may also make them run away, it depends on the work of the web designer. The experience, the talent and the capacity of endeavor are the greatest tools of a web designer, a good layout is based on all of these and, besides that, it is a very time consuming activity.Making a good layout is difficult and judging its value is subjective, a desi...
