Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Today ends up being another dev day. EmberJS announces that the new Glimmer rendering engine is now available in canary builds. This is big news for anyone using Ember. On Javalobby, there is discussion of vorlon.js and how to use it to debug your javascript remotely. Lastly, Superfeedr talks about reading the HTTP raw body from several different languages.

I will be at a conference for a few days this week, so I cannot promise to be prompt with updates.

Venture Beat leads the day with their reporting of Google+ Collections. I have mixed feelings about this mainly because I like having options available but Google+ does not seem to really be gaining mass adoption. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about taking inspiration from failed projects. Everyone should read this, regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur.

We start the week with recode reporting on the news that Grooveshark is shutting down. This should not be terribly surprising, but it is disappointing. VentureBeat reports on the Tesla announcement about Tesla Energy and the new batteries for home and business. I can’t wait to see how this changes the industry. Lastly, Mozilla has decided to deprecate HTTP and will focus on HTTPS. I am not sure if this is entirely a good thing, as encryption may not always be needed.

Today we focus on some development. First, Dave Winer at Scripting News talks about a bug being “reproducible”. For any software developer that needs to support a product, this can feel like the holy grail some days. The Breakfast Post shows us what 4 different flavors of ML look like when compared to Python. In addition to syntax, they look at tooling as well. Tooling is an integral part to languages anymore, so it is good to see it included. Behavior Driven Development has been gaining adoption, but according to a post on Java Code Geeks, Cucumber may not be the great idea that people were hoping. It is an interesting look at the library that has been synonymous with BDD.

Microsoft leads most of the news due to the announcements at their conference. As reported by The Next Web, they announced that developers will be able to reuse their Android code to bring apps to Windows 10. Having a bridge between ecosystems should help drive the availability of apps. Also reported by The Next Web, Microsoft announced that developers will be able to convert their iOS apps to Windows 10. This sounds more like a translation of Objective C to a target language, but it is another great step forward.
