  PHP function overloading puzzle clearer


PHP's meaning of overloading is different than Java's. In PHP, overloading means that you are able to add object members at runtime, by implementing some of the __magic methods, like __get, __set, __call, __callStatic. You load objects with new members. Overloading in PHP provides means to dynamically "create" properties and methods. These dynamic entities are processed via magic methods one can establish in a class for various action types. Some example:class Foo{    p...

  Don't Overload #nil?


There’s a popular post on Hacker News about writing confident code by, among other things, overloading Object#nil? and returning “null objects” instead of nil itself.DO NOT DO THIS.In Ruby, all objects (except nil itself) coerce to the boolean value true. Your object will be nil and true at the same time. Bad things will happen. Your coworkers will cry. Sad people from around the world will ask bewildering questions on your mailing list.Here’s what happens:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ...

  A C++ program puzzle


Recently I came across a question asked by wang2191195 on a Chinese IT forum CSDN which asks about a C++ program puzzle. He has a code snippet which cannot be compiled. The code is:#include <cstdlib> #include <iostream> using namespace std; class Base{ public: virtual void func(){ cout << "Base::func()" << endl; } virtual int func( int num ){ cout << "Base::func( int " << num << " )" << endl; return 0; ...

  App Store Visibility – A Few Do’s and Don’ts


Discovery and Visibility are the two vital components for any mobile app, if the app publishing company is to derive some amount of revenue from their apps. However, the lack of organized marketing channels, a well-laid user acquisition strategy or even a poorly designed app often reduces the chances of being widely adopted by the users. In short, it hampers the possibility of the app being successful. Here is a list of few things to keep in mind while posting an app to the app stores. What to ...

  "Programmer" is an Overgeneralization


"Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it." - Donald Knuth Earlier today, I came across a post during a google-fu session that claimed that no one should use the C++ standard library function make_heap, because almost nobody uses it correctly. I immediately started mentally ranting about how utterly ridiculous this claim is, because anyone whose gone to a basic algorithm class would know how to properly use make_heap. Then I started thinking about all the ...

  PopCap’s 10 rules for commercial failure in mobile games development


PopCap, the company behind social gaming hits as Plants vs. Zombies and Bejeweled, has a way of doing presentations at conferences. Last year’s Social Gaming Summit presentation was insightful in the sense that developers were advised to postpone trying to make money from their game until there is some serious traction. At yesterday’s London Games Conference, PopCap’s presentation was equally remarkable. During a brief presentation David Bishop (Senior Game Designer) presented the m...

  It’s Not Too Late to Learn How to Code


Coding is sort of like a superpower; with it you can create things that millions of people see. You can change the way people behave, the way they think, and the way they interact with others. This is beyond awesome, but I’ve also met a lot of people that think that this ability is inaccessible to them. I’ve met a lot of “non-technical” people who seem to think that this superpower is only bestowed on those fortunate enough to have it come easily to them at a very early age.I took two Co...

  Week 1 : Research - Elements of Successful iPhone Games.


This weekend I started work on my first full blown game for the iPhone. I’m not ready to share the details of what the game will be specifically as I’m sure these will change dramatically over the coming weeks. All I’m sure on is it will be a platform game built with Corona SDK. To get me started I’ve been downloading a bunch of games from the app store, jotting down some of the areas contributing to their addictiveness and success. Short levels I do most of my game playing in shor...

  The ugliest C feature:


<tgmath.h> is a header provided by the standard C library, introduced in C99 to allow easier porting of Fortran numerical software to C. Fortran, unlike C, provides “intrinsic functions”, which are a part of the language and behave more like operators. While ordinary (“external”) functions behave similarly to C functions with respect to types (the types of arguments and parameters must match and the restult type is fixed), intrinsic functions accept arguments of several types a...
