       Globalization, low-cost technologies and saturated markets are making products and services interchangeable and barely distinguishable. As a result, today’s brands must go beyond face value and tap into consumers’ deepest subconscious emotions to win the marketplace. The Role Of Brands Is Changing In recent decades, the economic base has shifted from production to consumption, from needs to wants, from objective to subjective. We’re moving away from the functional and technical characteristics of the industrial era, into a time when consumers are making buying decisions…

  • Training Tip: Simple Techniques for Solving Common Coding Problems

    Sencha Blog
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:55 am
    Often when I’m teaching a Sencha Training class, students ask me to look at their apps because there’s a problem they don’t know how to fix. Since I didn’t write the code, it’s hard sometimes for me to give them a quick answer. However, I do have a set of simple techniques that filter out the most obvious problems. In this tip, I’ll categorize a couple of the most common problems and tackle them with some simple but effective strategies. Problem: “I don’t see my data” You are browsing through your app, but the data is not visible. Often,…

  • A Guide To Validating Product Ideas With Quick And Simple Experiments

       You probably know by now that you should speak with customers and test your idea before building a product. What you probably don’t know is that you might be making some of the most common mistakes when running your experiments. Mistakes include testing the wrong aspect of your business, asking the wrong questions and neglecting to define a criterion for success. This article is your guide to designing quick, effective, low-cost experiments. A Product With No Users After 180 Days Four years ago, I had a great idea.

  • Building The Web App For Unicef’s Tap Campaign: A Case Study

    Nick Jonas, Francis Villanueva
    9 Apr 2014 | 3:12 am
       Since a smartphone landed in almost everyone’s pocket, developers have been faced with the question of whether to go with a mobile website or a native app. Native applications offer the smoothest and most feature-rich user experience in almost every case. They have direct access to the GPU, making layer compositions and pixel movements buttery-smooth. They provide native UI frameworks that end users are familiar with, and they take care of the low-level aspects of UI development that developers don’t have time to deal with. When eschewing an app in favor of a mobile website,…

    Mark McDonnell
    8 Apr 2014 | 2:39 am
       Ruby is a great language. It was designed to foster happiness and productivity in developers, all the while providing tools that are effective and yet focused on simplicity. One of the tools available to the Rubyist is the RubyGems package manager. It enables us both to include “gems” (i.e. packaged code) that we can reuse in our own applications and to package our own code as a gem to share with the Ruby community. We’ll be focusing on the latter in this article. I’ve written an open-source gem named Sinderella (available on GitHub), and in this article I’ll go through…

       A lot of mobile-minded talented folks across the globe produce great work, but yet sometimes you still hear many of them complain about their relationships with their clients. They often mention feeling isolated and not truly understanding what the client really needed. This lack of personal interaction often leads to misunderstanding, as well as less awareness of and appreciation for all your hard work. While involving clients in your mobile workflow can be challenging, really working together will make a big difference. In this article, I’ll share some important things I’ve…

    With Microsoft ending Windows XP support this month, we’re giving the jQuery community some long-lead-time notice on changes to browser support. First of all, don’t panic! Nothing is really changing with respect to the browsers that can run jQuery for at least six more months. Our goal is to let everyone in the web development community know what the jQuery team intends to do over the next year, so that you can plan accordingly. What’s Changing? There are no firm dates, but we plan on releasing jQuery core versions 1.12 and 2.2 this year. jQuery 1.13/2.3 will be released…

    It’s been a couple of months since our last releases escaped the grip of endless winter, so we thought it would be good to thaw out a beta that collects up the bugs that have been reported and fixed recently. Most of these bugs are mild as severity and frequency go, but that’s easier to say if you’re not impacted! As with all our beta releases, we make them available so you can test against them and let us know if they fix the bugs without introducing new bugs, surprising behaviors, or regressions.

    16 Apr 2014 | 8:01 am
    The 2007 introduction of the iPhone ushered in a new era of mobility. We now expect our applications and data to be accessible on the most convenient network-connected device. Our appetite for mobile technology has resulted in a massive influx of mobile devices supporting a myriad of different mobile operating systems. Many application developers soon realized the inefficiency of developing native applications in this multi-device, multi-platform world. They chose instead to embrace web technology and the emerging open standards around HTML5. The shift, now called hybrid app development,…

  • Delegated Events and Gestures in Ext JS 5

    9 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    Introduction Prior to version 5, Ext JS was designed exclusively for use on desktop devices with traditional mouse input. As of version 5, we've added support for touch input as well, which allows Ext JS to be used on a larger selection of devices, primarily tablets, but also laptops with touch-screens. The implications of this change will likely be transparent to users of the framework, but it’s helpful to understand what’s going on behind the scenes. In this article, we’ll explore how the framework handles touch events and event normalization between devices. Gestures In Ext…

    14 Apr 2014 | 5:57 pm
    Kevin Richardson is a South African zookeeper who has been accepted into several clans of spotted hyenas and prides of lions. His years-long relationship with these animals illustrates a different side of them: they can be affectionate and cuddly. Given how many atrocities humans commit to get their food, you have to wonder what one should consider the “true nature” of lions and hyenas. More information: A 15 minute documentary with Kevin Richardson shows him cuddling lions and hyenas. He also tells stories about their personalities and mentions interesting facts such as hyenas being…

    10 Apr 2014 | 2:22 am
    Are you curious how many recursive calls you can make on your JavaScript engine? How many recursive calls? The following function lets you find out (inspired by a gist by Ben Alman). function computeMaxCallStackSize() { try { return 1 + computeMaxCallStackSize(); } catch (e) { // Call stack overflow return 1; } } Three results: Node.js: 11034 Firefox: 50994 Chrome: 10402 What does this number mean? Mr. Aleph pointed out to me that on V8, the number of recursive calls you can make depends on two quantities: the size of the stack and the size of the stack frame (holding parameters and local…

Following are ones that I find intriguing: PDF: somewhat surprisingly, I still find PDF the best format for slides (I would have expected it to be HTML by now). Why? You get a single, easily portable and printable file that scales…
