Let's Get Physical (Units) | Boris Smus

Let's Get Physical (Units) | Boris Smus: "As a developer, I'd like to just say "this button is 40x9mm" and have that actually map to real physical dimensions. If I could ensure usable sizes for all of my touch targets, that solve this problem across all devices, once and for all!

Our Architecture | spire.io

Our Architecture | spire.io: "We run our servers on Amazon Web Services and use their elastic load balancer (which is where we terminate SSL). AWS gives us data centers around the world, which is nice (and great for load testing). However, this is an area that is evolving rapidly and we are always re-evaluating cloud providers. We also use HA Proxy, which is ideal for dealing with high-levels of concurrency, as our proxy server."

A view’s responsibility — a lesson on JavaScript and the DOM – BEKK Open

A view’s responsibility — a lesson on JavaScript and the DOM – BEKK Open: "Secondly, who is allowed to change what? Can all functions change whatever part of the DOM they want? This wreaks havoc for your tests and creates uncertainty as to where something occurs. And once again, you most likely need to set up the entire application to test the view.

My solution: A view is responsible for one HTML element and everything inside it.

And, of course, a view may contain several sub-views which again are responsible for themselves."

What were the tests that WinG did to evaluate video cards? - The Old New Thing - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

What were the tests that WinG did to evaluate video cards? - The Old New Thing - Site Home - MSDN Blogs: "He discovered all sorts of crazy shenanigans. Like a video driver which compares the string you ask it to display with the text "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." If the string matches exactly, then it returns without drawing anything three quarters of the time. The reason: Benchmarks often use that sample string to evaluate text rendering performance. The driver vendors realized that the fastest code is code that doesn't run, so by ignoring three quarters of the "draw this string" requests, they could improve their text rendering performance numbers fourfold."
