SauceDB: Writing data back [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/29/15 11:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Mobile, Bluemix, Cordova, Ionic
Welcome to another post on my ongoing series exploring building an Ionic hybrid mobile app making use of Node.js running on IBM Bluemix. Today I’m going to talk about writing data back to the server. Spoiler – this won’t be quite as cool as bringing sexy back. In my last post, I described a few minor upda

Copying Folders and Files From A List in Command Prompt [+]
Chris Tierney | 7/29/15 10:00 PM | Uncategorized
I had a unique request to copy a list of folders out of a greater collection of folders. Seeking the best way to do this I found this solution thanks to sidesofmarch: Step 1: Create a text (ex: migrate.txt) file containing a list of folders to be copied or moved, each folder name on a new line. Step 2:

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Lightpainting with Robots! And JavaScript! [+]
NCDevCon | 7/29/15 6:00 PM | 2015
Lightpainting with Robots! And JavaScript! About a year ago I bought a uArm desktop robot via Kickstarter. It's tons of fun and I've learned a lot about C and Arduino real-time programming. However, C is a total pain and it'd be much more fun to use JavaScript instead. I'll demonstrate sending the robot commands over serial/Bluetooth from NodeJS. I combined this with an RGB LED and a second Arduino controller. This LED can be controlled from the same JS program controlling the rob

NCDevCon 2015 Session-SASSinate Your CSS Development [+]
NCDevCon | 7/29/15 6:00 PM | 2015
SASSinate Your CSS Development Writing CSS is a tedious, manual process. But with the power of SASS, it's not! Learn more about this preprocessor, and how it can help both the coder and designer be far more efficient at writing, communicating, and handling styles. We will cover some of the basics, such as nesting selectors, variables, the power of the `&`, how to apply it to your workflow, and then blow your mind with some powerful functions and mixins.

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Ridiculously Easy Layouts with Flexbox [+]
NCDevCon | 7/29/15 3:00 PM | 2015
Ridiculously Easy Layouts with Flexbox Ready to have your mind blown? Meet Flexbox! The Flexbox (or Flexible Box) Layout Model is a set of CSS attributes that will likely change the way you think about UI layouts. Flexbox uses a dual-axis, container/item layout model allowing for powerful approaches to element space distribution, alignment, and sizing. This can be a tremendous boon for web projects with dynamic data and design flux. It may also tremendously simplify responsive la

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Passing on the right: Fast JavaScript for Slow Browsers [+]
NCDevCon | 7/29/15 3:00 PM | 2015
Passing on the right: Fast JavaScript for Slow Browsers Speed is the main ingredient of any good user interface, and delivering a fast UI can be a challenge on older browsers and mobile devices. This session will discuss why JavaScript is built for speed, how browsers draw things on the screen, and how to make it all as smooth as possible, even when you cant use CSS transitions.

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Getting to know you (Dev)Toolsbelt [+]
NCDevCon | 7/29/15 3:00 PM | 2015
Getting to know you (Dev)Toolsbelt This session will spend some hands on time going over different features of the developer tools built into your browser. This session will assume a basic understanding of developer tools already, and will go over powerful ways to use the devtools, useful shortcuts and features, and maybe a few things that are just for fun. The focus will be on the Chrome DevTools, but I may talk about some features of Firefox or even Microsoft Edge. Ab

ColdFusion: complete the implementation of associative array notation [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 7/29/15 11:00 AM | Adobe, CFML, ColdFusion 12
G'day:This'll be a quick one (not least of all because I only have about 20min to write it).CFML has the ability to reference struct (and by extension object) keys either statically via dot notation, or dynamically via associative array notation, eg:someObj = { someKey = someValue}; value = someObj.someKey;whichKey = "someKey";value = someObj[whichKey];This is cool,

CFB profiles and Preferences [+]
ColdFusion and Stuff | 7/29/15 8:00 AM
CFB profiles and PreferencesProfiles is one of my favourite features of CFB3. It allows you to keep separate preferences as schemes(profiles we call it). For example when you are developing or writing code, you want to see your comments in yellow but when you demo your application you want to keep your comments in grey so they are not catchy. You don't have to change your

PHP 7: new feature: enhanced type-checking on function arguments [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 7/29/15 8:00 AM | PHP, PHP 7
G'day:I'm back to doing some PHP beta testing. Or more "exploration" than testing, as I'm not being very rigorous about it. PHP 7 is tup to beta 2 now (download for Windows here: "PHP 7.0 (7.0.0beta2)"). Beta 1 came and went so quickly I never even installed it, let alone looked at it. I've had too ColdFusion 12 testing to do, and messing around with JavaScript. Even at work a the moment I'm pretty much doign JavaScript day-in/day-ou

Adobe / ColdFusion: sh!thouse work ethic from CF Team members again [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 7/28/15 8:49 PM | Adobe, ColdFusion
G'day:Adobe have been really pretty good with patches for CF10 and 11 this year, they're released a number of patches, and I have no idea how many issues have been dealt with, but it seems like quite a few. Perhaps someone can dig the numbers up. And people like Anit and Elishia (admittedly: more Anit) do a good job at being responsive to client comms via Twitter, blogs, forums and now Slack.However this hides a general attitude of lazy-arse-ness that infects the ColdFusion Tea

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Working with Static Sites [+]
NCDevCon | 7/28/15 6:00 PM | 2015
Working with Static Sites For years now we've had powerful application servers like PHP, Node, and ColdFusion, that could create our web apps. But there has been a shift recently in terms of how much we do on an application server versus how much we can do on the browser itself, as well as how much is done on a mobile app instead. Static site generators provide a powerful middle ground between a full app server deployment and a simple collection of static files. In this presentatio

NCDevCon | 7/28/15 6:00 PM | 2015
Going Beyond Hello World: Building Production-Ready AngularJS Applications Who doesn't love a "Hello World" applications? They are great for teaching concepts and getting your feet wet in a programming language. Unfortunately they rarely scale to meet the needs of the "real" applications that your business needs. As you build larger and more complex applications, there are different methods and considerations you must master in order to deliver a final product that is both usable a

Now that the spec is finalized, let's take a look at some of the other new features HTML5 has made available to us. In this talk we'll go over things like File IO, audio, video, and SVG support, and show you various new features that are already baked into current web browsers. We'll also show some code samples on how to use them in a modern web applica

Configuring Status Worker in Connectors [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 7/28/15 10:00 AM | Adobe ColdFusion 10, Adobe ColdFusion 11, Connector
Sometimes there is a requirement to know the realtime load on a ColdFusion Server. One way to get this information is through cfstat which displays the relevant information at CF server/Tomcat level. One more way to get this information is through Status worker which displays the information at Webserver/Connector level.  A status worker is a special type of worker which does not communicate with Tomcat. Instead it gathers configuration and load de

PHP 7: PHP's error "handling" lunacy is getting on my tits [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 7/28/15 8:00 AM | PHP, PHP 7
G'day:FFS. I'm part way through an article on something completely unrelated, and needed to knock up some code to demonstrate PHP's "magic" __toString() method. That code worked fine, but my sample code cacked-out because bloody PHP still can't deal with unexpected error conditions coherently.So here's something about __toString(), and something about PHP bei
