Accessible content for everyone and every device

Everyone, whether they have a disability or not, needs to have the same experience when using any intranet information or applications. Employees with a disability may use devices to help them. Your intranet needs to be compatible with these to avoid risking breaking the guidelines and any law that applies in the country where the person works.

Modeling Exercise: The Grocery Store's Checkout Model

The grocery store checkout model exercise deals with the following scenario. You have a customer that is scanning products in a self-checkout lane, and you need to process the order. The end result might be a Git repository that allows you to see the full approach that was used and how it changed over time. Ideally, you should see a lot of churn in the beginning, but then you’ll have a lot less work to do as your architecture settles down.

Outcome bias and the psychology that prevents sustained success

Ultimately, anyone in the tech space is going to have to make a number of product and market decisions. But make sure you apply the same logic to your personal career decisions as well.

Resource Management: xcres

We tend to keep our resource references pretty much in order by reflex when writing them actually, but looks like this might make that more streamlined. And looks like it would be downright invaluable the next time we’re handed some mess to make sense of written by someone who regarded the concept of ‘maintainability’ with fear and loathing apparently…

This year I’ve been giving an evolving live demonstration of coding a Fully Buzz Word Compliant, mobile-friendly web application. The aim of the demo is to show, via a real-world application rather than a toy example, where these popular technologies sit in your architecture, and how they interact with each other.

HTS with Regressors

The hts pack­age for R allows for fore­cast­ing hier­ar­chi­cal and grouped time series data. The idea is to gen­er­ate fore­casts for all series at all lev­els of aggre­ga­tion with­out impos­ing the aggre­ga­tion con­straints, and then to rec­on­cile the fore­casts so they sat­isfy the aggre­ga­tion con­straints.

Removing Uncited References in a Tex File (with R)

Usually, once you have revised the paper, some references were added, others were dropped. But you need to spend some time to check that all references are actually mentioned in the paper. I wanted to work on that manually this week-end, but @3wen suggested to write a simple R function to scan the tex f file (as well as the aux file actually) to remove uncited references.

The day after JSON: Spearal and mobile apps

The goal of the Spearal project is to provide a open-source serialization library that just works, whatever the complexity of your data structures, and that can be used as a simple replacement for JSON in most cases. We are here going to show an example with a Spring-based server and an Android app.
