Creating a unified programming model on top of .NET (CLR and DLR) – I watched Anders Hejlsberg’s, chief designer of the C# programming language, developer keynote at TechDays 2010 ‘Trends and future directions in programming languages’.<br />
Here are some the things that caught my attention. The video is worth checking out.
Google Web Toolkit Blog: Look ma, no plugin! – The new crop of HTML5 web browsers are capable of some pretty amazing things, and several of our engineers decided to take some 20% time to see how far we could push them. The result? An HTML5 port of Id's Quake II game engine!
Official Gmail Blog: Gmail on the iPad – With today's release of the iPad, we're launching an experimental two-pane user interface to take advantage of its large touchscreen and tablet form factor. Building upon the Gmail for mobile web app, this new interface displays your conversations on the left and your messages on the right hand side.
InfoQ: High Performance Ajax with GWT – Ajax applications have a big usability jump from traditional web applications and GWT provides tools that give you better Ajax performance for free. You should compare the startup speed of the GWT mail sample to other sample Ajax applications
I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
