Facebook Hacker Cup 2013: round 1 problem analysis - Notes - Tweakblogs - Tweakers: "Round 1 of the Facebook Hacker Cup has just ended. Competitors were required to solve three nicely-balanced problems: all of them required substantial thought, without being unreasonably difficult. Like last week, I will describe my solutions to the problems, although this time the solution source code is written in C++.

C++ containers that save memory and time

C++ containers that save memory and time: "We’re pleased to announce C++ B-Tree, a C++ template library that implements B-tree containers with an analogous interface to the standard STL map, set, multimap, and multiset containers. B-trees are well-known data structures for organizing secondary storage, because they are optimized for reading and writing large blocks of data. But the same property that makes B-trees appropriate for use with databases and file systems also makes them appropriate for use in main-memory, just with smaller blocks."

High Performance JS heatmaps - Codeflow

High Performance JS heatmaps - Codeflow: "You might have encountered heatmaps for data visualization before. There is a fabulous library, heatmap.js, which brings that capability to draw them to javascript. There is only one problem, it is not exactly fast. Sometimes that doesn't matter. But if you have hundreds of thousands of data points to plot, or need realtime performance, it gets tricky. To solve that I've written a little engine using WebGL for drawing heatmaps."

Python Diary | Good use for the Http-Accept header?

Python Diary | Good use for the Http-Accept header?: "While working on a project which needs to use JSON for AJAX functions, I thought about using the Http-Accept header to return content depending on what the client asks. Most web browsers send this header, and it is usually on the lines of, I accept anything in the XML mimetypes, including HTML. Since headers can be set from jQuery and various client software, I thought... Why not take advantage of this Http-Accept header and build a Django middleware to return the content which is accepted by the client. So far, it only detects and returns JSON, and there is no caching enabled. Keep in mind that this is my very first version of this middleware, which I did test and works as expected."
