Yesterday Stanford University made an announcement that its free iPhone application Development Training Course - CS193P, has broken the 1 Million Downloads barrier in 7 weeks! See the Stanford University press release here.  This semester’s 10 week class has been available on iTunesU since it started on April 1st and is again being taught by Alan Cannistraro, Evan Doll and a few other guest presenters mainly from Apple. The Syllabus is well thought out and covers all of what a budding iPhone developer would need to know and can be viewed here. The production of the videos has been slick and timely, each being available for download after a few days, along with any demo code and presentation slides in .PDF format. It leaves all of us, that with to take part remotely, free to take their time and re-review at their leisure. I have been enjoying the classes via iTunes ... (more)

Extending the Product Catalog

As more and more companies focus on providing higher levels of personalization in the products and services they offer, it's only natural that their online channels offer this same level of personalization. WebLogic Portal includes product catalog components capable of flexibly managing hierarchies of products and services. By default, products in the catalog are defined using standard Dublin Core attributes. This default configuration is sufficient to support most types of products sold over the Internet - books, hardware, camaras, etc. However, certain types of products require that customers select from among desired options before the products can be purchased. We can group these "configurable" products into three main categories based on their configuration needs: Light product configurations: Products that have a small number of simple, mandatory configurable...

ColdFusion Prevents Nudity

Have you ever come up with something clever and thought "Wow that should be on a T-shirt or something"? In the summer before my senior year of high school, my friend Graham Stevenson and I had that thought many times. So many in fact that we decided we should start a T-shirt company to address the growing demand for trendy yet original clothing. When we first started talking about the idea most people asked us "How are you going to start a business with no money, no investors, and no time?" The answer usually made my peers giggle, "It's easy, I'll use ColdFusion." Of course they didn't know I was talking about the handy server-side scripting tool that would allow me to do everything from marketing my website to order processing and inventory tracking. Background I had been using ColdFusion only a bit since I was introduced to it at a summer internship a few summers ... (more)

Space Junk

Today we got to put out one of the most weirdly cool press releases that we've done in quite a while. It was nice to see some blogosphere pickup from Tim O'Brien. Projects like this have quite a rigorous evaluation process to get to the start of deployment. One of the fun things about the realtime version of Java is that it gets us involved in all sorts of fascinating systems. It's not real engineering until megawatts are involved. :-) Today's customer visit involved folks in the gigawatt range... JavaOne coolness is getting over the top. A fair number of hotels are already sold out. For the past several years we've been back on a track of annual serious escalation. Choosing demos, judging awards, figuring out what goes into the keynotes and sessions is real tough. There are a bunch more sessions this year (we found some more space to book). The t-shirt launching cont... (more)

Adobe AIR Needs to Become a Real Desktop Platform

On Sunday morning, I got my two conference badges – one for Press and the other one as a Speaker.  Each of those gives an access to special receptions or meetings with Adobe big shots, and I don’t want to miss any of those. While waiting for the doors to the AIR Lab room to open, I overheard how one of the attendees have whispered to the other, “T-Shirts are over there!”. Now I can fulfill my main mission at MAX – bring MAX T-Shirt home for kids.  Being an honest person, I explained the t-shirt girl that I have two badges and asked if I can get two t-shirts.  She scanned both of my IDs – everything’s kosher. But then, the girl realized that making such decisions requires approval, and asked the senior t-shirt distributor for an advice. The older lady said, “No, one person – one t-shirt”. So much for being honest… My bad,  I violated the KISS principle – keep it simple... (more)

Rock the Vote Partners With PromoJam, Develops Social Technology With a Goal to Drive 1.5M Voter Registrations

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/14/12 -- With a goal to register 1.5 million voters in the upcoming Presidential election, Rock the Vote has enlisted the support of social media promotions startup PromoJam to custom build a digital campaign in the run-up to the presidential election in November 2012. Voters are unable to register to vote online in all but ten states. Yet, 18 to 29-year-olds in America -- 44 million strong -- are highly connected to social networking and web content sites through their smartphones, tablets and computers. To bridge the divide, Rock the Vote and PromoJam are using QR codes, mobile phones, and a leading-edge social media platform to make the antiquated voter registration procedures that exist today more accessible to young voters. This joint effort has been designed to engage youth, via their smartphones, in the political proces... (more)
