4 Shiners attended YOW Melbourne last week, which is a technology conference held yearly and brings high-profile and savvy presenters to talk on new and current trends in IT.
I’ll start with an overview of the venue, crowd and the sponsors that had stalls in the common area, then dive into a tech report.
In this post I’ll cover some of these anti-patterns, as well as some general advice for the new starter. I’ve ordered the anti-patterns roughly by significance from the major to the more trivial. Don’t be too upset if you’ve done something on this list – I’ve made most of these mistakes myself
$(..) statements, maybe a
$('#message').hide() (or a
$('#message').slideUp(); if you were hip).
onclick="alert('...')", to be something that has grown up with us, and now appreciate. It is the only runtime language I can think of that will run on any modern processing device. It’s ubiquitous and the ecosystem has evolved beyond what anyone could have imagined, with many implementations (Rhino, V8, now Nashorn) and it’s very own matching server-side equal, node.js
Node.js has impressed me several times with high performance right out of the box. In my last Node.js project it was the same: we beat the given performance targets without having to tweak the application at all. I never really experienced this in Java EE projects. Granted the project was perfectly suited for Node.js: a small project centered around fetching JSON documents from CouchDB. Still I wanted to know: how would Java EE compare to Node.js in this particular case?
Shine Principal Adam Kierce and UX Lead Sri Elkins celebrate at the awards ceremony
We’re excited and proud to announce that we’ve won in two categories at the 2013 Australian Mobile Awards!
We won an award in the ‘Productivity App’ category for Teamstuff, an app designed and developed entirely in-house by Shine.
Next up we were a winner in the ‘Sales Force’ category for the EnergyAustralia Digital Sales Experience web app, which we designed and developed for EnergyAustralia.
Congratulations to all at Shine who worked on these apps, and we look forward to building more great mobile apps in the future!
After a long (yet exhilarating) week the final day started with two keynotes, almost as if Oracle somehow knew that people may not have had much sleep the night before
