JavaScript Gets Visual With Waterbear

rgo The future! (220 comments)

"You can't help but think that this is the way all programmng will be done in the future." mikejuk, are you trying to troll us? Visual programming tools have existed for years now, but they won't replace textual programming because they can't handle complex scenarios without making the interface uncomprehensible (check out Max MSP). Also visual tools are usually domain specific, while general purpose languages (like Java, Ruby, Python are not).

rgo Re:So what? (152 comments)

It's annoying to always hear the line "you used to be assholes with us, but now you can't cause your country is fucked up" whenever something bad happens in Argentina.

Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS In 24 Hours

rgo Re:I learned it ... (107 comments)

Maybe in 2 hours you learned the very basics, like changing fonts and colors. Learning how to do complex layouts will take you a much longer time, due to broad scope of CSS (CSS 3 is massive) and because every browser implements CSS differently.

Google Hacked, May Pull Out of China

rgo Re:Likely story. (687 comments)

I guess you are right, Google could have just ignored the problem but aren't because they could have proofs that the government is behind the incidents.
From the post it sounds like they are pissed off with them.

Miguel de Icaza is now an MVP

rgo rgo writes  |  more than 4 years ago

rgo (986711) writes "Fayerwayer (in spanish), posted the news that GNOME and Mono leader Miguel de Icaza has been awarded a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award, which gives him the distinction of being a leader in Microsoft developer communiies. This award means that Miguel will have preferential access to Microsoft products that even people inside Microsoft don't have. According to Miguel's own words, This is pretty sweet(TM).

How could this impact the development of GNOME and Mono, knowing that MVPs have special access to Microsoft stuff? Could this special treatment from Microsoft put in jeopardy Miguel's position as an open source developer?"

Mozilla dev found out Safari is cheating

rgo rgo writes  |  more than 6 years ago

rgo (986711) writes "According to Mozilla dev Vladimir Vukicevic;, Webkit, and by extension Safari, links to a binary blob with over 100 non documented method definitions that depend on OS X internals that give it an unfair advantage over Firefox. Asa Dotzler asks people to reconsider using Webkit for their projects because Apple isn't playing fair.
Is it fair for everybody for Apple to pull a Microsoft-in-the-nineties to us, specially with a supposedly open source project?"
