Liberating TLDs gives companies the opportunity to open a top level for federating and branding products, communities.
I doubt microsoft ever get one, whatever.microsoft is too long and anything.msft is much too obscure.
But, sun opening a .java TLD would for sure be a great opportunity for them and us.
I entered a new company a bit over a year ago. Came back from Paris to my beloved French Riviera. Calanques, pastis and aÃ¯oli, i'm back.
In this company i am developing a new version of an old foxpro product which displays performance information in movie theaters.
Splines project now has its first incarnation within swash and the example chosen is the perfect one.
In a previous blog, Tim Bourdreau asked
Splines project is my latest contribution to oss.
It is aimed at helping people use, display and edit splines without too much hassle.
The main entity of the project is Curve, which is a list of CurseSection objects.
A bug corrected in latest netbeans 6.1 enables swash to display its animations realtime while you edit withing matisse. Great effect and good step ahead in productivity.
Thanks goes to Tomas Pavek for that.
Javaone is everywhere, looks like i will have to get there one time, just to know how it feels. Too bad i have to cross the ocean for this ( /me dreams of an european javaone... ).
Here is a totally non J1 related post, for your minds to rest from that avalanche of posts, news, information of all kinds.
As a programmer and somewhat graphist, i tend to make things nice, or at least i take time to work a bit on presentation.
But should i?
It is always better, in my opinion, to present even the slightest example with a little image but, when is that presentation distracting from the technological point of view, or in the opposite when is the presentation hiding flaws of an API?
Wow, time flies.
I started swash over one year ago and now the baby can walk. Not only it walks, but the second version of the webstart showcase makes it almost run.
Oh, that was not one year full, i often took big breaks, but it is here. It finally came smoother than i expected, but still worse than it could have been in a perfect world.
