It is easy to imagine the spheres in which one can use the knowledge of how to implicitly share some kind of information brought into the artifacts of mass culture. Today, there is no any practical need in hiding messages in the music. These are only pleasant bonuses for the particularly ardent fans of bands. Interlacing of messages into the songs’ words and changing colors in the design drawings of music albums are not taken into consideration here.
Many people believe that software testing is the search for the bugs. Sometimes, I say to testers, "Do not try to find as many errors as possible, try to miss as less as possible!” and they do not understand me. What's the difference?
There is a huge difference! In this article I want to tell you about that difference, and what tools you need to use for a useful troubleshooting.
What is troubleshooting?
How do you imagine a popular Twitter Bootstrap CSS framework will look like, if it was from Google? Let’s meet Plusstrap.
I would like to share some observations and my knowledge in this article with umumble readers.
Let’s do it!
1. Write as you say it aloud
Your task is to show other programmers that you do it with a little twist.
Before you write the next piece of code, think and say it out loud what you are going to do. For example, I need to clear little bit this item. Many people will write without any hesitation:
I have heard on the internet a lot of angry comments that Windows 7 - sucks! You see how much memory it eats up! To prove that below are given a few screenshots, and once again everyone blames the crooked hands Hindu programmers. Let's take a look what is going on over there.
Sometimes, web developers get a task that requires a smooth movement of the object on the screen. This may be a download string, sprite, or something else. The problem occurs when the shift seems to be too abrupt even at one point, and that messes up the overall impression of the event. How do we avoid it? Should we use anti-aliasing techniques?
This can be done using the sprites, as well as smart reduction of the original image. Here are some steps that you need to follow:
First, we have a large image of a car.
After three years of working with studio lights, I thought I knew a lot about the on-camera flash. Three weeks ago, I went to visit one very experienced strobist, who told and showed me so much that I immediately understood that I have to do.
I am going to give you a list of things where you can find something new for yourself. For example, it will explain how to use some photoflash features, and if at least you can find one feature useful for you, then I will consider that my task is done well. Please note that the material is related only to the Canon cameras and its flashes in the technical parts of the special features. For other brands the general idea of using is the same, but the specifics are slightly different.
Most people know about the difference between Firefox and Internet Explorer in the Internet industry. We also know what FTW is and what the difference is between ASP, PHP and RoR. At least we know what the difference is.
If you meet a businessman who has not ever heard about Digg, Google Apps or the Freemium, you'll be very surprised. Is not it right?
Now a lot of people write about what would happen if a web-developer decides to become a freelancer. Also, they write about some challenges that the freelancer may encounter, namely, they are hunting for new orders at first, then dealing with the influx of work, and finally overcoming own laziness. However, I still have not seen any article about what would happen if the freelancer decides to stop freelancing work that consists of the orders, prepayments, hunt for new customers, and so on.
Do I have the right to write such an article, perhaps you will decide, but I have an excuse to say that after about a year or more working as the web-developer, I started working as the freelancer on the vast web-market and was working there nearly two and a half years.
I am sick of these topical articles on how to improve performance, motivation, and other nonsense. Why do people write them? To help those who are confused about yourself or for those who cannot concentrate. I do not think so.
The modern life dictates that everything should be done quickly, in order to achieve maximum efficiency. Certainly, you need to be very successful. You need to move to the goal every day, every hour, and every minute. Leaving all the unnecessary things behind and throwing all efforts to achieve a result. Otherwise there is no point in living.
