Advent of Code - Day 5 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/6/16 4:00 PM
Another easy day for Advent of Code. The first challenge was to simply iterate over a string (take an input string, add 1 to it, and increase that number), make a hash, and check to see if the hash begins with 5 zeroes. If it does, you take the number after the 5 zeroes as a password character. You keep appending to a password until you have seven characters: var crypto = require('crypto'); v

Advent of Code - Day 3 and 4 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/5/16 5:00 PM
Only 5 days into Advent of Code and already this thing is kicking my rear. Both challenges over the weekend were (mostly) simply, but I’m already having trouble keeping up. This is a good thing though. I’m still absolutely loving the hell out of these challenges! Day 3 Day 3 was a rather simple problem. Given three numbers, can you determine if they could be a triangle? Turns out there’s a simple mathema

On Static Site Generator - Hugo [+]
Fusioned with ColdFusion | 12/4/16 7:00 PM | Hugo, Static Site Generator
Over the last few weeks, I've been looking into a Static Site Generator - Hugo. A Static Site Generator is useful if you're building an application which does not require dynamic data to be served. A blog can be considered as a service which serves static content. Instead of storing the content in a database field, the content is stored in a file (HTML file). Thus when a page is requested the content is served immediately instead of it being generated on deman

Thoughts and implementation on that daft FizzBuzz interview question [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 12/3/16 8:00 PM | Code Examples, Nicholas Claaszen
G'day:I'm not quite sure where I'm gonna go with this article yet. Usually when I start an article like this it ends up being a bit rubbish, so... well sorry if it turns out this way this time too.Right so there was a conversation on the CFML Slack channel last week stemming from someone deciding to use the old FizzBuzz question as part of a job interview. I'm not a great proponent of such things in interviews, but then back when I used to conduct such things I was shit at doin

Advent of Code - Day 2 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/2/16 5:00 PM
The second day’s challenge for Advent of Code was a bit easier than the first, so it was nice to tackle it a bit quicker. The puzzle involves a set of directions for moving your fingers over a numeric keypad. Imagine a typical security keypad layed out like so: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Then take input in this form: LLRUDD UUD Each line represents a set of movements to the lef

Begin the Advent of Code! [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/1/16 6:00 PM
Forgive the somewhat dramatic title, but today begins one of the coolest coding challenges I’ve ever done, the Advent of Code. The Advent of Code presents you with two coding challenges a day. (The second is typically a minor modification of the first one.) You can solve the challenge anyway you want. They start off - mostly - kind of simple and then kind of go off the deep end towards the end. Last year I was able to do all but, maybe, 4

A Simple Stats Script for Hugo [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/1/16 2:00 PM
I’m somewhat obsessed with stats, and one of the things I look at is my rate of publishing overtime. I’ve run this blog since 2003 and have gone from blogging 30+ times a month to - well - somewhat less than that. Quality is - of course - far more important than quantity. But as a general stat, I just like to know how much I’m writing. My static site generator of choice, Hugo, doesn’t have anything built in to support getting t

Scraping a web page in Node with Cheerio [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 11/30/16 2:00 PM
In yet another example of “I will build the most stupid crap ever if bored”, this week I worked on a Node script for the sole purpose of gathering data about SiriusXM. I’m a huge fan of the radio service (mostly because 99% of my local radio stations are absolute garbage, except for KRZS), and I was curious if the service had an API of some sorts. I was not able to find one, but I did find this page:

Ortus Solutions reaches a milestone with their Open Source Projects and number of Pull Requests [+]
Gavin Pickin - A Minute in the mind of Me | 11/30/16 1:00 PM | CFML Language, CFML Server, ColdBox, CommandBox, ContentBox, IntoTheBox, WireBox
Several years ago, my company and I spent time reevaluating the ColdFusion community, searching for a framework with great tooling, lots of documentation, training and professional support. We found that with Ortus Solutions and ColdBox. After a bootcamp, I started contributing however I could, a little code, some documentation, online presentations, conference sessions. At first, diving into Open Source was scary, but when you dip your toes to test the water, you realize its warm, like our C

Locale-Based Message Support Added to vadacl [+]
Thought Delimited | 11/29/16 11:00 PM | Angular 2
The latest release of my vadacl validation library for Angular 2 introduces a new feature:  locale-based error message configuration. Prior to this release, vadacl would allow you to configure the error message for a particular validation error condition for a particular object property in either the object-based validation settings or in the component responsible for the form controls.  And if y
