          Mount Sinai partnership to scale youth addiction treatments       Cache   Translate Page      

The Addiction Institute of Mount Sinai and the Center on Addiction have formed a strategic alliance to invest in new addiction treatments for adolescents and young adults.

On average, 200 people die every day from overdose, 20 of them teenagers, said Joseph Plumeri, executive chair of the Center on Addiction and a Mount Sinai Health System trustee. Still, the primary forms of addiction treatment for adolescents and young adults remain those designed for older adults.

"We wait to focus on the addiction that's entrenched in older people rather than trying to really sever that pipeline early," said Yasmin Hurd, professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and director of its Addiction Institute. "And if you're going to really prevent and stop the progression to severe substance-use disorder, you need to work with the youth, teens and young adults."

Successful adult treatments don't necessarily work in younger people, Hurd added.

The main treatments for opioid use disorder involve drugs such as Methadone and buprenorphine, so-called opioid agonists, which stop cravings and withdrawal symptoms. "They have saved many lives," Hurd said, "but for youth, we want to try different strategies using medications that are not so addictive."

The alliance between Mount Sinai and the Center on Addiction will address pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment initiatives, Hurd said, including behavioral health, digital apps and technology for monitoring substance use and connecting with peers—even transcendental meditation. The collaboration also will focus on developing hard data, needed for advancing new treatment avenues and scaling them nationally, she said.

"The goal of the alliance," she said, "is to move that ball way down the field rather than kicking it incrementally."

Both Mount Sinai and the Center on Addiction plan to make financial investments in the initiative, including the hiring of a program director. Recruiting for that job is underway, Hurd said. Both entities will apply for research grants, she said.

"We can take what we do at Mount Sinai and give that solution set to other hospitals," Plumeri said. —J.H.

 

One Brooklyn's Interfaith plans $17.9M behavioral health upgrade



Interfaith Medical Center, one of the three hospitals comprising the newly formed One Brooklyn Health System, is proposing a $17.9 million renovation of its behavioral health unit in order to enhance the care environment with more patient and common space, improve programming and address suicide risks.
The proposal is one of many facility upgrades for the health system scheduled during the next five years under its capital restructuring plan. In August, Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, also part of One Brooklyn, revised a prior proposal to renovate and expand its intensive care unit, increasing the estimated cost to $17.5 million from $15 million.
One Brooklyn’s plans, supported by a $664 million award from the state for facility transformation, consist of numerous subprojects grouped into three categories: ambulatory care development, IT and facilities infrastructure and clinical transformation, according to the health system's certificate-of-need application. A series of additional CON filings are expected next year for other projects, said Charlotte Neuhaus, director of strategic planning for One Brooklyn and Interfaith Medical Center.
Approximately two years ago, the state Health Department commissioned “The Brooklyn Study: Reshaping the Future of Healthcare,” which was authored by Northwell Health. The feasibility study made recommendations for restructuring health care and integrating Interfaith, Brookdale Hospital and Kingsbrook Jewish medical centers into a sustainable health system in Central Brooklyn. 
"The state has been supporting and guiding this whole processs," Neuhaus said. —J.H. and R.S.

$4M CDC grant to help Bronx group address health disparities


The Institute for Family Health has received almost $4 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to expand its Bronx Health Reach Coalition throughout the borough.

The grant, which took effect last week, will support efforts of a Bronx-wide coalition of more than 80 members who represent health care providers, community and faith-based organizations, social services providers, advocates and city agencies, said Maxine Golub, senior vice president of planning and development at the institute.

The federally qualified health center, which operates about 30 clinics, mostly in the city, has received CDC funding for almost two decades to address racial and ethnic health disparities through programs stressing nutrition and exercise. But this is the first time the grant has covered a five-year period and expanded the coalition's geographic scope, said Maxine Golub, senior vice president of planning and development.

"It's really nice to know we're funded for five years and can think more strategically over a longer period of time," she said.

BHR will focus on increasing access to healthy foods and beverages, creating more breastfeeding-friendly sites, expanding access to safe places for physical activity and using locally available health programs to improve ties between the community and providers.

"We are aware that many of the root causes of disparities cannot be adequately addressed in the exam room, and we are thrilled that the [CDC] has maintained its investment in our work to permit us to move closer to that goal," said Dr. Neil Calman, president and CEO. —Robin D. Schatz

 

Cornell Tech prof named a MacArthur 'genius' for work in health care


A Cornell Tech and Weill Cornell professor who developed mobile technology that addresses health conditions using large amounts of personal data is among the 2018 MacArthur Fellows announced Friday.

Deborah Estrin, associate dean and professor of computer science at Cornell Tech and professor of public health at Weill Cornell Medical College, launched Open mHealth back in 2011 with additional collaborators, the MacArthur Foundation said. Open mHealth integrates personal data from sources such as cell phones, fitness trackers and online shopping "to build customized applications that address specific health conditions," according to her bio on the MacArthur website. "Estrin was among the first to ascertain the potential of using the digital traces of our daily lives for participatory mobile health."

"Clinical care can now be personalized and individualized because of these devices we have at our disposal," said Estrin in an interview. "The hope is to move this on from possibility to actuality."

This year's MacArthur fellows will receive awards of $625,000, paid in quarterly installments over five years, for creative work deemed to have the potential for future advancements.

While Estrin said she hasn't decided exactly how she will use the award, she said it will support her research in personalizing care and privacy. —J.H.

          Quantum One-Time Memories from Stateless Hardware, by Anne Broadbent and Sevag Gharibian and Hong-Sheng Zhou      Cache   Translate Page      
A central tenet of theoretical cryptography is the study of the minimal assumptions required to implement a given cryptographic primitive. One such primitive is the one-time memory (OTM), introduced by Goldwasser, Kalai, and Rothblum [CRYPTO 2008], which is a classical functionality modeled after a non-interactive 1-out-of-2 oblivious transfer, and which is complete for one-time classical and quantum programs. It is known that secure OTMs do not exist in the standard model in both the classical and quantum settings. Here, we show how to use quantum information, together with the assumption of stateless (i.e., reusable) hardware tokens, to build statistically secure OTMs. This is in sharp contrast with the classical case, where stateless hardware tokens alone cannot yield OTMs. In addition, our scheme is technologically simple. We prove security in the quantum universal composability framework, employing semi-definite programming results of Molina, Vidick and Watrous [TQC 2013] and combinatorial techniques of Pastawski et al. [Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 2012].

          Fox's midterm engagement strategy is telling its viewers that Democrats are coming to kill them      Cache   Translate Page      


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

With the midterm elections only four weeks away, a slew of Fox News commentators are warning their conservative viewers that they are physically imperiled by a “violent” leftist “mob” and must vote to keep Republicans in power in order to protect themselves. Their argument is an effort to turn out the GOP base by weaponizing conservative criticism of the protestors who opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

“Anyone who sits right of center, anyone who's a Trump supporter, we're all targets” of public harassment from the left, contributor Tomi Lahren explained on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning. “The average citizen, if you're on the right, should be concerned and in danger.” Sebastian Gorka, a former White House aide now at Fox, similarly argued that the Democrats had “normalized violence in America,” comparing the need to fight back against that purported effort to the Revolutionary War.

Fox’s message has not appeared in a vacuum -- as usual, the network is taking cues from the Republican Party. Most Americans disapprove of the job President Donald Trump is doing and abhor the Republican Congress, making it more likely that Democrats will gain control of the House or Senate and exercise much-needed oversight of the administration. In response, Republicans have seized on protests against Kavanaugh’s confirmation, trying to whip up their base by conflating those protests and Democrats as a whole. That opposition, they claim, is a dangerous “mob” that cannot be allowed to gain power.

“In their quest for power, the radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob,” Trump said at a rally in Topeka, KS, on Saturday. “You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob. That's what they have become. The Democrats have become too extreme and too dangerous to govern.”

Trump’s framing of the midterm elections as a battle against the “angry left-wing mob” consumed Fox’s prime-time programming on Monday.

“In 29 days, the choice is going to be clear,” argued Sean Hannity, the Trump propagandist with so much influence on the president that White House aides describe him as the shadow chief of staff. “Do you want mob rule or law and order?” He went on to say that viewers who lived in states with toss-up Senate races had the opportunity to reject senators who “gave in to the Democratic mob” by voting against Kavanaugh’s confirmation, adding that “there are no more moderates left in the Democratic Party,” which has “evolved into a party of the radical far left.”

Laura Ingraham, who at one point was considered for the White House communications director job, made the exact same point on her Fox show. “There is too much on the line for intraparty squabbles any longer,” she argued Monday. “And the choice for voters is now really simple. Mob rule or the rule of law? Perpetual rage or real results?” Later in the program, Monica Crowley, a Fox contributor who decided not to join the Trump administration following the revelation that she had plagiarized parts of her book, argued that the left is “violent” and “at war” against, among other things, “individual liberty.”

And Tucker Carlson, another host with keen influence over the president, said that Democratic donor Tom Steyer’s claim that Kavanaugh had been supported by “entitled white men” was “exactly the kind of thing that Hutu leaders in Rwanda were saying in the early 1990s” before committing genocide against the Tutsi tribe.

Fox has long operated as the communications arm of the Republican Party, remaking itself since Trump’s ascension as his personal propaganda outlet. Expect to see its commentators pull out all the stops over the next month in order to maintain congressional Republicans’ majority and protect Trump from meaningful oversight.

          Is it considered a bad practice to add fields to the Symfony entity in the contr ...      Cache   Translate Page      

Is it considered a bad practice to add fields to Symfony entity in controller? For example lets say that I have a simple entity:

/** * @ORM\Entity * @ORM\Table(name="user") */ class User extends BaseUser { /** * @ORM\Id * @ORM\Column(type="integer") * @ORM\GeneratedValue(strategy="AUTO") */ protected $id; public function __construct() { parent::__construct(); } public function getId() { return $this->id; } public function setId($id) { $this->id = $id; } }

And then in UserController.php I want to do the following:

foreach($users as $user){ $user->postsCount = someMethodThatWillCountPosts(); }

So later that postsCount can be displayed in Twig. Is it a bad practice?

Edit:

It's important to count posts on side of mysql database, there will be more than 50.000 elements to count for each user.

Edit2:

Please take a note that this questions is not about some particular problem but rather about good and bad practices in object oriented programming in Symfony.

"rather about good and bad practices in object oriented programming"

If that's the case then you really shouldn't have any business logic in controller, you should move this to services.

So if you need to do something with entities before passing them to twig template you might want to do that in specific service or have a custom repository class that does that (maybe using some other service class) before returning the results.

i.e. then your controller's action could look more like that:

public function someAction() { //using custom repository $users = $this->usersRepo->getWithPostCount() //or using some other service //$users = $this->usersFormatter->getWithPostCount(x) return $this->render('SomeBundle:Default:index.html.twig', [ users => $users ]); }

It's really up to you how you're going to do it, the main point to take here is that best practices rather discourage from having any biz logic in controller . Just imagine you'll need to do the same thing in another controller, or yet some other service. If you don't encapsulate it in it's own service then you'll need to write it every single time.

          Switch parameters to php include &sol; require a build      Cache   Translate Page      

I've read quite a few posts that are very similar to the question I'm about to ask, but I just wanted to be sure that there wasn't a more sophisticated way to do this. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I want to create a mechanism to check whether or not a logged-in user has access to the php script that is currently being called . If so, the script will continue on; if not, the script just fails out using something like die('you have no access') .

I came up with two ways of accomplishing this:

(please assume my session stuff is coded/working fine - i.e. I call session_start(), set up the session vars properly and etc)

Define a global variable first, then check the global variable in a required header file. For example:

Content of current_executing_script.php:

// the role the logged in user must have to continue on $roleNeedToAccessThisFile = 'r'; require 'checkRole.php''

Content of checkRole.php:

if ($_SESSION['user_role'] != $roleNeedToAccessThisFile) die('no access for you');

Define a function within the header file and call the function immediately after including/requiring it:

Content of checkRole.php:

function checkRole($roleTheUserNeedsToAccessTheFile) { return ($_SESSION['user_role'] == $roleTheUserNeedsToAccessTheFile); }

Content of current_executing_script.php:

require 'checkRole.php'; checkRole('r') or die('no access for you');

I'm wondering if there is a way to basically just pass a parameter to checkRole.php as part of the include or require construct?

Thanks in advance.

There isn't a way to pass parameters to include or require.

However the code that is included joins the program flow at the point where you include it, so it will inherit any variables that are in scope. So for example if you set $myflag=true immediately before the include, your included code will be able to check what $myflag is set to.

That said, I wouldn't suggest using that technique. Far better for your include file to contain functions (or a class) rather than code that gets run straight off. If you've included a file containing functions then you can call your functions with whatever parameters you want at any point in your program. It's much more flexible, and generally a better programming technique.

Hope that helps.

          Getting Started with SubSonic (Download PDF)      Cache   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.net/archive/2006/12/09/subsonicdoc.aspx

Here is the full article in PDF format. Complete with bookmarks to each section of the article.

 

Summary

SubSonic is an open-source toolset, created by Rob Conery, as an attempt to put the fun back into programming and just get the job done.  Inspired by Ruby on Rails, SubSonic takes a minimalist approach to coding and emphasizes convention over configuration.  While it takes its inspiration from Ruby on Rails, it is not a port of it.  (Check out MonoRail it that's what you're looking for.)  Instead, SubSonic takes the best ideas of Ruby on Rails and adapts them into the already existing ASP.NET framework.  Currently SubSonic, version 1.05, implements two core features:

ActiveRecord

This design pattern in its simplest form is one class per database table, one object per database row.  SubSonic includes a build-time code generator to implement this pattern that acts as an object-relational mapper eliminating the need to write SQL.  It also includes a dynamic query tool and simple store procedure support to extend the model when needed.

Scaffolding

Admin pages are a chore that scaffolding helps remove.  Simply point a scaffold control at a table and you get the standard grid view and detail view to find and update data in the underlying table.  While not meant to ever be shown to users, it makes a nice, quick and easy developer tool.

Today, Xbox Live's Director of Programming, Larry Hryb, announced that Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD was backward compatible. Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there. ...

          Thread: How to Rob a Bank:: General:: How does it compare to Colt Express?      Cache   Translate Page      

by manfredv2point0

I just watched one of the video reviews of this game, How to Rob a Bank, and it seems to me that this game feels pretty similar to Colt Express. Sure there are plenty of minor differences, but at their core both are programming games about robbing money.

As I see it, the biggest difference is the team play (Robbers) in How to Rob a Bank, versus the every-bandit-for-themselves approach in Colt Express.

I already own Colt Express. Is How to Rob a Bank different enough to warrant owning? And yes, I'd love to own every game that catches my eye but until I rob a bag or redtrain I've got to be more discerning.

If anyone owns or has played both games, please chime-in with your thoughts. Thanks!

No Right? If you're a Scrum Master thinking: "this guy doesn't get what the Scrum Master role is about", it's time to UP your Scrum as well!

Bad Scrum

There are many misconceptions about Scrum and the Scrum Master role, as you can read in e.g. these blog posts: (please don't read now, but later!)

But that's not really what this blog post is about. This blog post is for the Scrum Masters who think they are on the right track, think that they know more than others or think that they can always improve. I bet if you're a Scrum Master you're at least part of all of these. I would like to take you on a bit of a journey in this blogpost and help you to improve yourself and others.

Becoming a Scrum Master

There are lots of different paths towards becoming a Scrum Master. A lot of people I know come from another role. They did not do a Scrum Master bachelor (or Master!) and grew into the role.

From that point on you bring your own experience into the role. It being a former developer, project manager, tester, HR manager or else.

Some are asked to become Scrum Master in a dual role, because that's efficient or just an easy way to go. With the best intentions.

In a lot of cases, there is not much passion for the empirical process control that Scrum is all about. Or sometimes you just don't know. No judgement there, because often people are doing their best to help the team and sometimes also the organization.

If you'd like to read more about the different stances of the Scrum Master, read this post.

My Scrum Master journey

I started my journey as a Scrum Master and a programmer within a Development Team. We needed to try something different. I just went on the Scrum Master course and wanted to practice. So there I went. I totally went nuts on the Jira workflows and Scrum board, doing Sprint Retrospectives and telling everyone how they should feel about Scrum. It was awesome. I guess I was on the right track, somewhat. But I could do better.

A couple of years later I wanted to expand my experience in being a Scrum Master and left programming to the developers who really knew what they were doing. I did two teams (still did the workflow and Jira administration) and had a great time. I don't know if I really was much good to the teams, but I was still trying. Also, it worked well for the organization at that point in time.

I started giving training to people within the company, teaching them about Scrum. Teaching other Scrum Masters and helping them on their way. I learned more and more everyday, but felt I was pretty much ahead of the rest. Finally I could call myself Agile Coach!

It wasn't until I started my own company and working with other outside of the organization I was working in that I got to see that there was still so much to learn. I kept on reading, going to meetups, training together with other people and I got my first coaching job.

When I started working with other companies and teams I struggled and found the Scrum Master role pretty hard. By I learned to rely on the teams more and more. Not fixing it for them, but helping them to fix. That gave me more energy.

I applied to become a member of the Professional Scrum Trainer Community with Scrum.org. It felt like that would be some kind of ultimate achievement. However, it proved to be much more than that. It got me to realize that there is a great deal to learn from each individual I met. Not just within the community, but also in every day working with teams and other trainers and students. Every time I facilitate a training or work with teams, I try to be open to the things I can learn from all the people around me. And sometimes realizing that something that's someone else's strength will never be yours, it can still inspire you to try out new things and keep learning.

One of the latest classes released by Scrum.org and developed by my friends Barry and Christiaan, the Professional Scrum Master II class, shows how great this is. Scrum Masters coming together to learn mainly from each other, asking for help, offering help and gaining insights on how to better facilitate the empirical process within organizations. Helping other Scrum Masters, helping the Product Owner and the wider organization understand how to use Scrum to reach your product potential.

So how do I "UP my Scrum" then?

Be open and respectful to others. Learn from each individual. Have the courage to not know the answer and ask for help. Focus on being a guardian of the empirical process. Commit on fostering team decisions, even if you think you have a better idea. That is when you "UP your Scrum".

    PURPOSE OF EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)

    The increasing focus on conflict-affected and fragile contexts in UNICEF’s humanitarian and development programmes drives our commitment to conflict sensitivity and the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies. This requires additional capacities that can be deployed flexibly, to meet the support needs of UNICEF Country Offices.

    Successful candidates will be placed on a roster and considered for individual assignments as requested by UNICEF Country Offices.

    BACKGROUND

    A quarter of the world’s children – more than 500 million – grow up experiencing violent conflict and chronic crisis. These children also face the largest challenges in the realization of their rights, which is why UNICEF programmes often operate in conflict-affected and fragile places. Seventy percent of UNICEF programme resources today are invested in these contexts.

    UNICEF has made it a priority to ensure conflict sensitivity and to identify programming entry points to address underlying causes of conflict. In 2016, the organization published the UNICEF Guide to Conflict Analysis and the UNICEF Conflict Sensitivity and Peacebuilding Programming Guide. Both guiding documents were developed based on field experience and evidence from UNICEF programmes and contain a specific child focus.

    SCOPE OF WORK

    UNICEF is seeking qualified individual consultants with technical expertise in the following areas:

    Conflict Analysis

  • Desk review of existing conflict analyses with a child rights focus
  • Participatory conflict analysis

              Ohio State to offer esports program, build gaming arena      Cache   Translate Page      

    While other schools in the state such as Miami University and the University of Akron already offer esports programs, Ohio State is developing what it describes as a comprehensive, first-of-its kind esports program.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Ohio State University is getting into the esports game.

    While other schools in the state such as Miami University and the University of Akron already offer esports programs, Ohio State is developing what it describes as a comprehensive, first-of-its kind esports program.

    "With Ohio State being a leader in engineering, academics, research and medicine, it seems a natural fit to pull all of these together to support the esports program," Deborah M. Grzybowski, co-director of the game studies and esports curriculum development, said in an announcement.

    Students can earn undergraduate and graduate degrees in fields of study offered across five colleges and might include esports management, game art and production, game design, programming and more. There will be elective course offerings and online certification programs as well.

    The university will also field esports teams to compete against other universities in a new league formed by the Electronic Gaming Federation-- sort of the NCAA of college esports. Gamers will play and practice in a state-of-the-art arena equipped with over 80 seats, along with gaming consoles and virtual reality systems and a broadcast booth. The arena will be open to all students.

    Additionally, the influx of gamers will allow researchers at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center to study the brains of elite esports players to find out what makes them tick.

    "We have a lot to learn from studying esports athletes, from their exceptional reaction times and rapid decision-making abilities to their physical attributes and health behaviors," said James Onate, co-director of the Sports Medicine Movement Analysis and Performance Program at Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, in a statement.

    When the program launches, Ohio State will join more than 60 colleges and universities with esports programs. Competitive video gaming has rapidly become popular in recent years but is only beginning to reach the mainstream. Esports is expected to become a billion dollar industry by 2019, according to market researcher New Zoo.

    PROGRAM NOTES
    Mozart: Quartet in F Major, K. 590
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756-1791) Quartet in F Major marks the third of the composer's "Prussian" quartets, so named because they were commissioned by the King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II. The influence of Joseph Haydn can be seen in many of Mozart's works. Here in particular, the quartet's structure follows certain guidelines laid down by Haydn and expanded by Mozart: four movements with contrasting tempi and styles. In the first movement, Mozart creates a charming texture from an interrelated pattern of unison arpeggios and scales, before ending with a witty surprise as the music quietly vanishes. The second movement is reminiscent of siciliana, a dance form which is often pastoral and bittersweet. An unsettled quality comes in the third movement with long oscillating lines shifting harmonically, occasionally to the point of dissonance. The final movement is fun-loving and virtuosic with each instrument given a chance to burst out with a solo.

    Britten: Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25
    Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) originally received a commission from American patroness Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge to compose the String Quartet No. 1 in 1941. The finished quartet was first performed in Los Angeles in September of that year, earning the composer the Library of Congress Coolidge Medal for Eminent Services to Chamber Music. This quartet is remarkable for the sound-world Britten creates, the structure of its movements, the way themes reappear in different guises, and for its unexpected key relationships. The unusual sound-world is evident from the first instant of the beginning movement where the two violins and viola-set very high in their range-play a pulsing pattern. The trills and whistling runs of the second movement culminate in a violent end, with the third movement bringing a world of calm. Demanding virtuoso performers, the final movement is relentless, racing to its resounding close on a D-major chord.

    Dvo?ák: Quartet in F Major, Op. 96 "American"
    In the summer of 1893 Antonín Dvo?ák (1841-1904) took his family to Spillville, Iowa, for a vacation. It was there that he sketched the "American" quartet, a piece that would become the composer's most well-known chamber music composition. In this work, Dvo?ák combines elements of many cultures: Slavonic intonations, music of American Indians and African-Americans. A shimmering halo of sound opens the work and serves as the foundation for the viola's presentation of the folk-like main subject. The second movement, distinguished by the lyrical beauty of its melodic line is both calm and melancholy. The vivacious third movement is built from two contrasting strains of music: one lively and dance-like, the other more lyrical and mysterious. In a spirit of joyous optimism, the finale recalls the main theme.


    BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

    The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In its home town of New York, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS), where it has presented the complete Zemlinsky Quartets Cycle as well as being one of five quartets chosen to collaborate in a complete presentation of Beethoven's string quartets. Last season, the quartet toured with CMS to China.

    Within months of its inception in 2005, the ensemble came to the attention of key musical figures worldwide. Championed by the Emerson Quartet, the Escher Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be Quartet-in-Residence at each artist's summer festival: the Young Artists Program at Canada's National Arts Centre and the Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, NY. The quartet has since collaborated with artists including David Finckel, Leon Fleischer, Wu Han, Lynn Harrell, Cho Liang Lin, Joshua Bell, Paul Watkins and David Shifrin, as well as jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman, vocalist Kurt Elling, legendary Latin artist Paquito D'Rivera and Grammy Award-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux. In 2013, the quartet became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

    The Escher Quartet has made a distinctive impression throughout Europe, performing at venues such as Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, London's Kings Place, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Slovenian Philharmonic Hall, Auditorium du Louvre and Les Grand Interprètes series in Geneva. With a strong collaborative approach, the group has appeared at festivals such as Heidelberg Spring Festival, Incontri in Terra di Siena Festival, Dublin's Great Music in Irish Houses, Risør Chamber Music Festival in Norway, Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival and Perth International Arts Festival in Australia.

    The current season sees another extensive European tour, including debuts at Musik und Kunstfreunde Heidelberg, de Singel Antwerp, Budapest's kamara.hu festival and Bath Mozarfest. Alongside its growing success in Europe, the Escher Quartet continues to flourish in its home country, performing at Alice Tully Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Chamber Music San Francisco, and the Ravinia, Caramoor and Music@Menlo festivals.

    Currently Quartet-in-Residence at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Tuesday Musical Association in Akron, the quartet fervently supports the education of young musicians and has given masterclasses at institutions such as the Royal Academy of Music in London and Campos do Jordão Music Festival in Brazil.

    In Autumn 2016, the quartet released the third and final volume of the complete Mendelssohn Quartets on the BIS label. The set has been received with the highest critical acclaim; Volume II was listed in the Top 10 CDs of 2016 by The Guardian and hailed for its "sheer finesse" by Gramophone, while Volume III was nominated for a BBC Music Magazine Award. The quartet has also recorded the complete Zemlinsky String Quartets in two volumes, released on the Naxos label in 2013 and 2014 respectively, to accolades including five stars in The Guardian with "Classical CD of the Year", a Recommendation in The Strad, "Recording of the Month" on MusicWeb International and a nomination for a BBC Music Magazine Award.

    The Escher Quartet takes its name from the Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher's method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.

    A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

    School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood development and maybe custom papers writing. Although more commonly known for teaching children, leading childhood educators are also training teachers, to share their research and valuable teaching methods with professionals in the childhood development field.A childhood educator teaching childcare providers, will focus on developing a child academically, socially, emotionally and physically throughout pivotal phases in children's developmental years. A childhood educator conducting workshops and presentations aimed at educational institutions, can discuss any topic ranging from learning through play, to healthy eating habits, and age appropriate fitness.In addition to protecting and caring for young children, teachers are more interested in child psychology than ever before. Countless hours of modern scientific research has shown that children, who are taught with methods appropriate to their brain development, will be more independent, better socialized and emotionally stable adults. A child consultant for teachers can share expertise in the form of workshops, presentations and through published books and presentations.A Childhood Educator Implements Programs into SchoolsA childhood educator's role goes behind education for educators. A childhood educator will also design and implement programs into educational institutions. Better programming paves the road to a student's future success. As a childcare provider, teachers and parents set the stage for future generations.Program development can include services such as:• Policy Manual Development• Handbook Development• Concept DevelopmentResearch is a large component to any leader in the childhood development industry. An expert on developmentally appropriate learning for children and adults makes a great childhood educator for childcare providers. It is well advised to seek out a childhood educator with experience teaching and working with a variety of ethnic backgrounds. In Canada, a childhood educator with research and field work experience teaching aboriginal students is an asset. Canada has a rich diversity of culture, and being able to properly tie learning with home and family-life, is a technique for including parents into their child's education.In the field of childhood development, Dr. Ingrid Crowther is a well known expert childhood consultant in Canada. She has designed and implemented programs across the country for elementary schools, to universities. Her experience and knowledge in early childhood development, have taken her career to various levels of accomplishments, including published books for children and adults. She is the executive director of Lifelong Learn, a company dedicated to teaching childhood educators and parents through workshops, seminars, presentations and books.For a sample of past presentations, visit Lifelong Learn for downloads. Presentations such as, "Developmentally Appropriate Fitness," and "Learning Retention," have been popular downloads, and excellent resources to childcare providers.See More

    A new innovative learning lab opened Oct. 3 at Whitewater Middle.  A result of Verizon's vision and partnership, it offers students a bright, modern 3,000-square-foot area where they can collaborate, create, communicate, think critically and solve problems — all necessary skills in today's learning environment.

    Whitewater is one of six schools in CMS that have been part of Verizon Innovative Learning since 2016. Now, it is one of the first two middle schools in the country to have an innovative learning lab. The project started 18 months ago with the Verizon Foundation's education program team. The team visited labs and makerspaces at leading universities such as Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and the University of Virginia to ensure that the new lab would be of the highest caliber. 

    "Research has shown that maker-centered learning helps students develop ingenuity and flexibility, as well as self-confidence and a sense of community," said Principal Beth Thompson. "Let's take virtual reality as an example. We don't know everything that can be done with that technology yet, but we can teach it and let our students' minds take us to where it can go. That is the power of having this space. We can have 'what if' moments every day."

    The lab's focus is on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) — a perfect match for Whitewater, which is an environmental STEM-themed school. The lab features such technology as augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), coding and circuits, 3D design and sound production. There is also write-on wall paint throughout the space, interactive monitors and two adjoining classrooms.

    "I love this lab. I'm an artsy type of guy so the 3D printer is cool," said Jeffrey Hairston Jr., a seventh-grader. "It's hands-on, so it won't get boring either."

    Seventh-grader Sumayyah Muhammad-Bouaoud and eighth-grader Marco Castillo agree that the virtual reality is one of the biggest hits among students.

    "When I'm using the AR/VR I don't have to design things on paper. I'm drawing, building and moving my creations in real time to see how they work," said Sumayyah.

    Eighth-graders Jakob Yang and Antonio Nie sat at a table with a case full of circuits and other materials that could be used for making games, robots, alarms and sensors. They were building and programming a car. Nearby, another set of students were making an alarm.

    "There was a time when we were one of the lowest-growth schools in the district and many thought we couldn't improve. In the last four years, we have exceeded growth, proving our students are capable," said Thompson. "This lab is another resource that gives them an opportunity to explore and experience the endless possibilities that technology provides in and outside of the classroom."

              Why do people who can't write a simple program even entertain the idea they can get jobs as working programmers?      Cache   Translate Page      

    Originally posted on: http://blog.geekypedia.net/archive/2010/02/22/why-do-people-who-cant-write-a-simple-program-even.aspx

    This question was posed by Jeff Atwood.

    Easy answer.  Because they can find jobs.

    I have interviewed loads of people who were missing even the most basic skills.  And these were not all junior programs, this happened even at the senior level positions.  They are easy to weed out in a technical interview, but not every company gives one.  I think companies are learning not to hire people based solely on manager opinions.  And the land rush to get any programmer at all is over.

    I remember doing an interview once with a recruiter, the HR guy and an owner.  When I talked to the owner and asked when I would get to meet some of the team and take the technical interview he told me they don’t do that.  He said he was a great judge of people and could pick out the smartest developers just by talking to them, even though he had no technical skills.  I passed on the offer.  I did have a chance to work with some of his people on a project a couple of years later, and surprise, they sucked.  They were all talk and no talent.  The bad programmers with good people skills gravitate toward these positions.

    A more recent example is a large company that is hiring A LOT of people in the area.  They will basically take any contractor that applies because they are desperate to meet a quota.  These contractors don’t do much work, but that’s not the point.  The point is to fill seats.  All politics.  These bad programmers even with zero people skills will eventually find a place like this, and assuming they have no ambition and are happy just to have a job, they will do fine.

    My advice, if you interview for a company and they don’t do as much work to screen you as you would to screen someone else, think very hard about taking that offer.  You could be working with a lot of bad code and some pretty questionable people.  Unless of course you suck, then sign up, you’re home.

    Is Nikki Haley jumping off a sinking ship? (Jacob Heilbrunn, October 9, 2018, The Spectator)

    Her announcement caught Trump flatfooted, coming after the previous evening's revelries at the White House, where he turned a ceremony for newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh into a political pep rally that is likely to further enrage his detractors and opponents. The sudden defection of one of his big stars is exactly the kind of television programming that Trump loathes, particularly on the eve of the November midterm elections, which Politico says look increasingly ominous for Republican control of the House of Representatives.

    Neocons such as Bill Kristol are celebrating, convinced that this augurs a run by Haley in 2020. She was seen as a standard-bearer for a more mainstream Republican foreign policy as opposed to Trump's nationalist sallies.

    I never thought I would be a Software Engineer, back when I was little I used to have the firm conviction to be an Architect, but something happened... I realized that the more I grew up the more I became more interested in Computers. After my third semester of High School (I live in México, and in my state, public High School lasts 4 semesters) I came with an answer: I was decided to do a BS in Computer Science.

    Lets go forward 4 months after I started university. It was the end of my first semester in school (2015, 3 years ago), just 4 months of experience coding, my first programming class was object oriented programming and the deadline of my first final project in my CS degree was 1 week away.

    An ERP system to manage the students, professors, classes and schedules of a university using a MySql Database.

    I wanted to cry. Like, literally. It was my first project in my CS career and I was stuck. What is a database? What is SQL? What is a non-relational database? What is a database management system? How can I connect my Java code to a database? I used to have a lot of questions like those, I had no experience and I had no idea in how to do those things.

    Of course that I could have just copied code from stack overflow or pages like that, but I NEEDED to know how things work. For me, copying is just not enough. I was trying to finish the project, doing all from scratch and by my own.

    I remember those nights of searching online in a lot of videos, web pages, books, everything... just to bring to my head new questions. I was totally lost. Searching the web was just doing harm to myself, Computer Science is an ocean of information and I was in the middle of that ocean with no clue of where I was, what to do or what information to search.

    Our team finished the project with help of other students from higher semesters.

    I still remember the feeling. The sensation that you know nothing, that even if you put all your effort in searching information, you don't understand anything, everything seems to be written in a foreign language (Actually it was, everything was in English, but you understand the point).

    Even 6 months later, after a C programming class, searching how to do web programming was like... wait what the hell is a framework and why do people recommend tons of them? What is Django? Backend? Frontend? What is the difference between a framework and a library? Maybe I was too slow, but that was a lot of information for me.

    So I don't know if it was just me or everyone feels this way at the beginning, but I was very lost, I had the wish to learn more, but trying that just left me with more questions.

    Do I still feel the same?

    No. Absolutely no. I think that at some point of my degree I learned how to learn. This is a very import skill, because as a Software Engineer, you need to be updated with new technologies and you need to have the ability to learn new tech and tools as you walk through your career.

    Maybe, eventually, everyone gets to this point. The point where you can surely read any documentation online and pick a new language. The point where you can read about new tech without being completely lost. The point where you can learn whatever you want online, just with a little patience.

    But maybe not, maybe some people gets so frustrated that decides to quit CS, maybe some people will convince themselves thinking: "This is not for me". If you are getting to that point of frustration let me tell you something, you are not alone, everyone in the developers community is here to help you.

    Do Not Give Up.

    The next tips are for you. I want to give you some of my little experience as a CS Student in how to start diving in this beautiful ocean of knowledge. Keep in mind that this tips were the little things that helped me out to be a better learner, this tips may not be useful for your situation because we are all different.

    Ask for help

    Maybe it sounds obvious, but it is not. Sometimes our pride doesn't let us to ask for help, even tho it is a normal and healthy thing to do.

    Don't expect someone giving you all the answers. Ask for advice, ask for experiences, try to understand how they learned what they know, try to figure out what do you need to start to study to get to the level where they are. Ask for advice to know how you will start tackling all the information that is out there.

    Be Social

    Going to Campus Party México (A tech convention full of conferences) has been one of the best experiences of my life. I spent 8 hours traveling in a bus with a bunch of strangers across the country just to meet new people and to learn all that I could about technology.

    Talking to all the devs, the hackers, the creative people and even the business people, all of that helped me to grow in an incredible way.

    Having conversations with people that have more experience than you is like reading a good book. It's amazing. You get to know experiences that will help you through you journey, knowing what is going to come and how they affronted those situations is a great opportunity for you to think about how you could react to similar situations. You start to discover a lot of things that you were unaware of.

    Math is fun

    Not everybody thinks this way but I do.

    Having a good background in math is very helpful for every programmer. Probably in you daily work you will not use derivatives and integrals BUT algebra, calculus, probability and geometry will give you an excellent sense of logic.

    I am not saying that you have to be good at math to be a good dev. My point is that, in my case, I can see a relation between having more ability with math and having more understanding in how a computer works and more ease writing code.

    Read Read and Read

    Reading is fundamental for your development. Articles like the ones that you can find here or in any development site are very helpful.

    Be a proactive student, don't be satisfied with the information that you get in the school, in the bootcamp or in the online-course.

    You need to be hungry of information. Time is not an excuse, I read "Clean Code" by Robert C. Martin between my Uni classes even tho I work halftime as a Web Dev.

    If I can do it, you surely can.

    Make CS an important part of your life

    After a few months into my degree I realized that making CS a constant topic in my life, and I am not including here my "Academic Life", was a great way to learn about short topics in a fun and fast way.

    When I say "Make CS an important part of my life" I am referring to little things like, following YouTube channels about CS, following devs in Twitter, going to conferences about tech, making CS a topic of conversation with other devs/classmates instead of talking about the last-night episode of -insert favorite show- and even talking with my Uni professors about their experience in the tech industry.

    I am not saying that you should leave all your hobbies to live a 100% software engineering life. I am saying that you should consider CS as another hobbie in your life.

    It's okey if this is too much CS for you, some people prefer to think about this things only in their work time. But, if you are like me and you absolutely LOVE coding and learning new things about tech everyday, you should consider this advice.

    Do not stress out

    This point is very important. Always keep calm.

    NO ONE knows everything, so keep calm. It is okey if you don't understand some topic, it is okey if you don't understand some tech and it is okey if you just don't 'feel' to learn it.

    I used to stress out a lot because my skills in web development (specially front-end) are not the best out there, but after some time thinking about what I really want in my life I realized that web development Its just not my thing.

    So, after all, there was no point in getting stressed because I didn't know the latest JavaScript framework or because I didn't know how to do good front end design if at the end of the day I was going to pursue the low level programming and algorithms path.

    Those were some aspects of my life as student that helped me to learn more and faster. Maybe those points do not apply for you, but I feel the need to bring new ideas to the discussion, because after all, communities like this one helped me in my introduction to this industry.

    Sometimes you can feel down, sometimes you can feel that your productivity levels are really low and that you are not learning anything, but let me say to you this: Eventually, everything gets better, just keep going, keep learning, keep putting effort in what you want.

    "Everything in this life has a fix, except death" So enjoy your life learning what you love.

    Thank you for reading ~


              Let’s make life easier for autistic folks at work!      Cache   Translate Page      

    About Me

    My name’s Carly Ho, and I’m a Senior Engineer at Clique Studios in Chicago; I’m also an autistic adult. I was diagnosed during college as part of getting help for my executive function problems. I sometimes have difficulty with getting overwhelmed by sounds, often find eye contact incredibly uncomfortable, and can get really fidgety in long meetings if I’m not actively engaged somehow.

    I’ve made it to a place I’m pretty happy with, career-wise, but it’s not all been smooth sailing, and over the course of my years in tech I’ve learned a lot of things about myself and the environments I work best in. To pay it forward, I wanted to put together some information to help make more workplaces a comfortable place for autistic folks.

    Some Terminology: What is autism?

    Autism is hard to pin down, since its markers exist on a spectrum. Autistic people “may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most other people,” in the words of the CDC, but “there is often nothing about how people with ASD [Autism Spectrum Disorders] look that sets them apart from other people.”

    The differences in how autistics communicate and perceive the world often cause them (us!) social and behavioral challenges in understanding and being understood. While there are no hard limitations on what autistic people are capable of, the way society is structured can make many things significantly more challenging.

    While “person-first” terminology is recommended for referring to people with disabilities, many autistics prefer identity language (“autistic” versus “person with autism”). This doesn’t cover 100% of the autistic community, so it’s always good to double-check with people who have a personal stake in it.

    “Neuroatypical” is also a way to refer to people with neurological differences, often specifically referring to autism, but sometimes also other neurological conditions and developmental disorders. (“Neurotypical” being the inverse.)

    How are work environments stressful for neuroatypical folks? And how can we fix it?

    There's a lot of things in the workplace—and particularly in the tech workplace—that can be a struggle for autistic folks to handle. While tech has long been considered something of a career refuge for autistic people in that it's more acceptable to stay heads-down programming most of the day and not socialize much, that's not how all autistic people prefer to work, and there are still a lot of hurdles.

    A lot of this advice is also what in accessibility is called a "curb cut" effect—while it's helpful for autistic folks, they're also things that might help people with other neurological conditions, or even neurotypical employees.

    Interpersonal Communication

    Communication is often a struggle for autistic folks. Some are entirely nonverbal, and others can talk but struggle to express themselves or read tone from others in spoken communication. As a result, many autistics prefer email or chat programs for communication, where they can consider their words more carefully, and where emojis and parentheticals can clarify emotional tone.

    Furthermore, communication in general can be stressful; social anxiety is a frequent companion of autism due to the fact that autistic people go through a lot of uncertainty in social situations. If you’re sending someone a message, even if it’s just friendly conversation, lead with your intent; open-ended messages can stress people out, since they don’t know if it’s bad news, a request, or just chatter.

    Try and get to know how individuals like to receive communication and feedback. I know some people (including me!) have “readme” files about how they prefer to communicate at work. If your organization hosts events, consider also having color-coded badges at events to allow people to set their own level of engagement.

    Noise and External Stimuli

    Many autistics have difficulty with various forms of sensory processing. Noise is the most common office hazard out of all of those—open office environments, which are ubiquitous in tech, often come with noise and distractions that can make it even more difficult for autistic employees to work, since autism can make it harder to filter out distracting noise.

    Try and have an emcee or event leader keep cross-talk/multi-directional noise to a minimum at events for people who have sensory overload problems, and provide rooms in the office for people to take phone calls and have conversations away from desks. If you have an open-office environment, consider subsidizing noise-cancelling headphone purchases. It can also be nice to have work events in quieter settings than the usual venues of restaurants or bars.

    Long Meetings and Stimming

    Many autistic people have difficulty maintaining focus through long meetings. The expression of autism can sometimes overlap with that of ADHD—fidgeting and poor attention span. A lot of autistic people feel most comfortable when allowed to engage in stimming, which often involves some kind of repetitive movement. Doing this generally helps autistic people maintain a sense of calm and focus, but can be misconstrued as being inattentive or disruptive.

    Autistic adults in the workplace generally know how to regulate their own behavior in a way such that it's not attention-grabbing. However, specifically allowing people at meetings to do other things to occupy their hands and not necessarily sit completely still as long as they're engaged is something that might help autistic employees feel more comfortable in knowing that their behavior won't be interpreted as disengagement.

    If it's necessary to have long meetings or education sessions, consider building in things that invite attendees to participate and have stretch breaks.

    Dealing with priority and schedule changes

    A common feature of autism is difficulty with executive function—which is to say, organization and successfully executing all the steps to complete a task. It can sometimes interfere with memory, planning, and time management, among other things. Autistic adults in the workplace generally have some measure of executive function, but will sometimes need different accommodations than neurotypical employees.

    Let folks know about schedule changes and plan changes with as much lead time as possible. This is polite, but also helps autistic co-workers re-plan their time.

    If you can, make requests or tasks in written form in addition to verbally so that there’s a reference able record. Also, try to be specific as possible about priority of tasks if there’s a distinct order; what may seem obvious to you might not to others.

    And above all else…

    Include neuroatypical folks in your diverse hiring efforts, and listen to them about what accommodations they need. The saying goes that “if you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person,” and it holds true for a lot of other types of neuroatypicality. Different neuroatypical folks have very different skills, needs, and difficulties, but we also tend to have a good handle on what will help us best if you make it clear that it’s possible to be accommodated.

    What helps you?

    Readers at home: those of you who are autistic or neuroatypical, what challenges do you find in the office? What accommodations and strategies do you find helpful?

    You can't get very far in JavaScript without dealing with objects. They're foundational to almost every aspect of the JavaScript programming language. In fact, learning how to create objects is probably one of the first things you studied when you were starting out. With that said, in order to most effectively learn about prototypes in JavaScript, we're going to channel our inner Jr. developer and go back to the basics.

    Objects are key/value pairs. The most common way to create an object is with curly braces {} and you add properties and methods to an object using dot notation.

    let animal = {}
    animal.name = 'Leo'
    animal.energy = 10
    
    animal.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    animal.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    animal.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    

    Simple. Now odds are in our application we'll need to create more than one animal. Naturally the next step for this would be to encapsulate that logic inside of a function that we can invoke whenever we needed to create a new animal. We'll call this pattern Functional Instantiation and we'll call the function itself a "constructor function" since it's responsible for "constructing" a new object.

    Functional Instantiation

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      let animal = {}
      animal.name = name
      animal.energy = energy
    
      animal.eat = function (amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      }
    
      animal.sleep = function (length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      }
    
      animal.play = function (length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
    
      return animal
    }
    
    const leo = Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = Animal('Snoop', 10)
    

    "I thought this was an Advanced JavaScript course...?" - Your brain It is. We'll get there.

    Now whenever we want to create a new animal (or more broadly speaking a new "instance"), all we have to do is invoke our Animal function, passing it the animal's name and energy level. This works great and it's incredibly simple. However, can you spot any weaknesses with this pattern? The biggest and the one we'll attempt to solve has to do with the three methods - eat, sleep, and play. Each of those methods are not only dynamic, but they're also completely generic. What that means is that there's no reason to re-create those methods as we're currently doing whenever we create a new animal. We're just wasting memory and making each animal object bigger than it needs to be. Can you think of a solution? What if instead of re-creating those methods every time we create a new animal, we move them to their own object then we can have each animal reference that object? We can call this pattern Functional Instantiation with Shared Methods, wordy but descriptive 🤷‍♂️.

    Functional Instantiation with Shared Methods

    const animalMethods = {
      eat(amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      },
      sleep(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      },
      play(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
    }
    
    function Animal (name, energy) {
      let animal = {}
      animal.name = name
      animal.energy = energy
      animal.eat = animalMethods.eat
      animal.sleep = animalMethods.sleep
      animal.play = animalMethods.play
    
      return animal
    }
    
    const leo = Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = Animal('Snoop', 10)
    

    By moving the shared methods to their own object and referencing that object inside of our Animal function, we've now solved the problem of memory waste and overly large animal objects.

    Object.create

    Let's improve our example once again by using Object.create. Simply put, Object.create allows you to create an object which will delegate to another object on failed lookups. Put differently, Object.create allows you to create an object and whenever there's a failed property lookup on that object, it can consult another object to see if that other object has the property. That was a lot of words. Let's see some code.

    const parent = {
      name: 'Stacey',
      age: 35,
      heritage: 'Irish'
    }
    
    const child = Object.create(parent)
    child.name = 'Ryan'
    child.age = 7
    
    console.log(child.name) // Ryan
    console.log(child.age) // 7
    console.log(child.heritage) // Irish
    

    So in the example above, because child was created with Object.create(parent), whenever there's a failed property lookup on child, JavaScript will delegate that lookup to the parent object. What that means is that even though child doesn't have a heritage property, parent does so when you log child.heritage you'll get the parent's heritage which was Irish.

    Now with Object.create in our tool shed, how can we use it in order to simplify our Animal code from earlier? Well, instead of adding all the shared methods to the animal one by one like we're doing now, we can use Object.create to delegate to the animalMethods object instead. To sound really smart, let's call this one Functional Instantiation with Shared Methods and Object.create 🙃

    Functional Instantiation with Shared Methods and Object.create

    const animalMethods = {
      eat(amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      },
      sleep(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      },
      play(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
    }
    
    function Animal (name, energy) {
      let animal = Object.create(animalMethods)
      animal.name = name
      animal.energy = energy
    
      return animal
    }
    
    const leo = Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = Animal('Snoop', 10)
    
    leo.eat(10)
    snoop.play(5)
    

    📈 So now when we call leo.eat, JavaScript will look for the eat method on the leo object. That lookup will fail, then, because of Object.create, it'll delegate to the animalMethods object which is where it'll find eat.

    So far, so good. There are still some improvements we can make though. It seems just a tad "hacky" to have to manage a separate object (animalMethods) in order to share methods across instances. That seems like a common feature that you'd want to be implemented into the language itself. Turns out it is and it's the whole reason you're here - prototype.

    So what exactly is prototype in JavaScript? Well, simply put, every function in JavaScript has a prototype property that references an object. Anticlimactic, right? Test it out for yourself.

    function doThing () {}
    console.log(doThing.prototype) // {}
    

    What if instead of creating a separate object to manage our methods (like we're doing with animalMethods), we just put each of those methods on the Animal function's prototype? Then all we would have to do is instead of using Object.create to delegate to animalMethods, we could use it to delegate to Animal.prototype. We'll call this pattern Prototypal Instantiation.

    Prototypal Instantiation

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      let animal = Object.create(Animal.prototype)
      animal.name = name
      animal.energy = energy
    
      return animal
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    const leo = Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = Animal('Snoop', 10)
    
    leo.eat(10)
    snoop.play(5)
    

    👏👏👏 Hopefully you just had a big "aha" moment. Again, prototype is just a property that every function in JavaScript has and, as we saw above, it allows us to share methods across all instances of a function. All our functionality is still the same but now instead of having to manage a separate object for all the methods, we can just use another object that comes built into the Animal function itself, Animal.prototype.

    Let's. Go. Deeper.

    At this point we know three things:

    1) How to create a constructor function.
    2) How to add methods to the constructor function's prototype.
    3) How to use Object.create to delegate failed lookups to the function's prototype.

    Those three tasks seem pretty foundational to any programming language. Is JavaScript really that bad that there's no easier, "built in" way to accomplish the same thing? As you can probably guess at this point there is, and it's by using the new keyword.

    What's nice about the slow, methodical approach we took to get here is you'll now have a deep understanding of exactly what the new keyword in JavaScript is doing under the hood.

    Looking back at our Animal constructor, the two most important parts were creating the object and returning it. Without creating the object with Object.create, we wouldn't be able to delegate to the function's prototype on failed lookups. Without the return statement, we wouldn't ever get back the created object.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      let animal = Object.create(Animal.prototype)
      animal.name = name
      animal.energy = energy
    
      return animal
    }
    

    Here's the cool thing about new - when you invoke a function using the new keyword, those two lines are done for you implicitly ("under the hood") and the object that is created is called this.

    Using comments to show what happens under the hood and assuming the Animal constructor is called with the new keyword, it can be re-written as this.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      // const this = Object.create(Animal.prototype)
    
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    
      // return this
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    

    and without the "under the hood" comments

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    

    Again the reason this works and that the this object is created for us is because we called the constructor function with the new keyword. If you leave off new when you invoke the function, that this object never gets created nor does it get implicitly returned. We can see the issue with this in the example below.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    const leo = Animal('Leo', 7)
    console.log(leo) // undefined
    

    The name for this pattern is Pseudoclassical Instantiation.

    If JavaScript isn't your first programming language, you might be getting a little restless.

    "WTF this dude just re-created a crappier version of a Class" - You

    For those unfamiliar, a Class allows you to create a blueprint for an object. Then whenever you create an instance of that Class, you get an object with the properties and methods defined in the blueprint.

    Sound familiar? That's basically what we did with our Animal constructor function above. However, instead of using the class keyword, we just used a regular old JavaScript function to re-create the same functionality. Granted, it took a little extra work as well as some knowledge about what happens "under the hood" of JavaScript but the results are the same.

    Here's the good news. JavaScript isn't a dead language. It's constantly being improved and added to by the TC-39 committee. What that means is that even though the initial version of JavaScript didn't support classes, there's no reason they can't be added to the official specification. In fact, that's exactly what the TC-39 committee did. In 2015, EcmaScript (the official JavaScript specification) 6 was released with support for Classes and the class keyword. Let's see how our Animal constructor function above would look like with the new class syntax.

    class Animal {
      constructor(name, energy) {
        this.name = name
        this.energy = energy
      }
      eat(amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      }
      sleep(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      }
      play(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    

    Pretty clean, right?

    So if this is the new way to create classes, why did we spend so much time going over the old way? The reason for that is because the new way (with the class keyword) is primarily just "syntactical sugar" over the existing way we've called the pseudoclassical pattern. In order to fully understand the convenience syntax of ES6 classes, you first must understand the pseudoclassical pattern.

    At this point we've covered the fundamentals of JavaScript's prototype. The rest of this post will be dedicated to understanding other "good to know" topics related to it. In another post we'll look at how we can take these fundamentals and use them to understand how inheritance works in JavaScript.

    Array Methods

    We talked in depth above about how if you want to share methods across instances of a class, you should stick those methods on the class' (or function's) prototype. We can see this same pattern demonstrated if we look at the Array class. Historically you've probably created your arrays like this

    const friends = []
    

    Turns out that's just sugar over creating a new instance of the Array class.

    const friendsWithSugar = []
    
    const friendsWithoutSugar = new Array()
    

    One thing you might have never thought about is how does every instance of an array have all of those built in methods (splice, slice, pop, etc)?

    Well as you now know, it's because those methods live on Array.prototype and when you create a new instance of Array, you use the new keyword which sets up that delegation to Array.prototype on failed lookups.

    We can see all the array's methods by simply logging Array.prototype.

    console.log(Array.prototype)
    
    /*
      concat: ƒn concat()
      constructor: ƒn Array()
      copyWithin: ƒn copyWithin()
      entries: ƒn entries()
      every: ƒn every()
      fill: ƒn fill()
      filter: ƒn filter()
      find: ƒn find()
      findIndex: ƒn findIndex()
      forEach: ƒn forEach()
      includes: ƒn includes()
      indexOf: ƒn indexOf()
      join: ƒn join()
      keys: ƒn keys()
      lastIndexOf: ƒn lastIndexOf()
      length: 0n
      map: ƒn map()
      pop: ƒn pop()
      push: ƒn push()
      reduce: ƒn reduce()
      reduceRight: ƒn reduceRight()
      reverse: ƒn reverse()
      shift: ƒn shift()
      slice: ƒn slice()
      some: ƒn some()
      sort: ƒn sort()
      splice: ƒn splice()
      toLocaleString: ƒn toLocaleString()
      toString: ƒn toString()
      unshift: ƒn unshift()
      values: ƒn values()
    */
    
    

    The exact same logic exists for Objects as well. Alls object will delegate to Object.prototype on failed lookups which is why all objects have methods like toString and hasOwnProperty.

    Static Methods

    Up until this point we've covered the why and how of sharing methods between instances of a Class. However, what if we had a method that was important to the Class, but didn't need to be shared across instances? For example, what if we had a function that took in an array of Animal instances and determined which one needed to be fed next? We'll call it nextToEat.

    function nextToEat (animals) {
      const sortedByLeastEnergy = animals.sort((a,b) => {
        return a.energy - b.energy
      })
    
      return sortedByLeastEnergy[0].name
    }
    

    It doesn't make sense to have nextToEat live on Animal.prototype since we don't want to share it amongst all instances. Instead, we can think of it as more of a helper method. So if nextToEat shouldn't live on Animal.prototype, where should we put it? Well the obvious answer is we could just stick nextToEat in the same scope as our Animal class then reference it when we need it as we normally would.

    class Animal {
      constructor(name, energy) {
        this.name = name
        this.energy = energy
      }
      eat(amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      }
      sleep(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      }
      play(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
    }
    
    function nextToEat (animals) {
      const sortedByLeastEnergy = animals.sort((a,b) => {
        return a.energy - b.energy
      })
    
      return sortedByLeastEnergy[0].name
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    
    console.log(nextToEat([leo, snoop])) // Leo
    

    Now this works, but there's a better way.

    Whenever you have a method that is specific to a class itself, but doesn't need to be shared across instances of that class, you can add it as a static property of the class.

    class Animal {
      constructor(name, energy) {
        this.name = name
        this.energy = energy
      }
      eat(amount) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
        this.energy += amount
      }
      sleep(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
        this.energy += length
      }
      play(length) {
        console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
        this.energy -= length
      }
      static nextToEat(animals) {
        const sortedByLeastEnergy = animals.sort((a,b) => {
          return a.energy - b.energy
        })
    
        return sortedByLeastEnergy[0].name
      }
    }
    

    Now, because we added nextToEat as a static property on the class, it lives on the Animal class itself (not its prototype) and can be accessed using Animal.nextToEat.

    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    
    console.log(Animal.nextToEat([leo, snoop])) // Leo
    

    Because we've followed a similar pattern throughout this post, let's take a look at how we would accomplish this same thing using ES5. In the example above we saw how using the static keyword would put the method directly onto the class itself. With ES5, this same pattern is as simple as just manually adding the method to the function object.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    Animal.nextToEat = function (nextToEat) {
      const sortedByLeastEnergy = animals.sort((a,b) => {
        return a.energy - b.energy
      })
    
      return sortedByLeastEnergy[0].name
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const snoop = new Animal('Snoop', 10)
    
    console.log(Animal.nextToEat([leo, snoop])) // Leo
    

    Getting the prototype of an object

    Regardless of whichever pattern you used to create an object, getting that object's prototype can be accomplished using the Object.getPrototypeOf method.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    const prototype = Object.getPrototypeOf(leo)
    
    console.log(prototype)
    // {constructor: ƒ, eat: ƒ, sleep: ƒ, play: ƒ}
    
    prototype === Animal.prototype // true
    

    There are two important takeaways from the code above.

    First, you'll notice that proto is an object with 4 methods, constructor, eat, sleep, and play. That makes sense. We used getPrototypeOf passing in the instance, leo getting back that instances' prototype, which is where all of our methods are living. This tells us one more thing about prototype as well that we haven't talked about yet. By default, the prototype object will have a constructor property which points to the original function or the class that the instance was created from. What this also means is that because JavaScript puts a constructor property on the prototype by default, any instances will be able to access their constructor via instance.constructor.

    The second important takeaway from above is that Object.getPrototypeOf(leo) === Animal.prototype. That makes sense as well. The Animal constructor function has a prototype property where we can share methods across all instances and getPrototypeOf allows us to see the prototype of the instance itself.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    console.log(leo.constructor) // Logs the constructor function
    

    To tie in what we talked about earlier with Object.create, the reason this works is because any instances of Animal are going to delegate to Animal.prototype on failed lookups. So when you try to access leo.prototype, leo doesn't have a prototype property so it will delegate that lookup to Animal.prototype which indeed does have a constructor property. If this paragraph didn't make sense, go back and read about Object.create above.

    You may have seen __proto__ used before to get an instances' prototype. That's a relic of the past. Instead, use Object.getPrototypeOf(instance) as we saw above.

    Determining if a property lives on the prototype

    There are certain cases where you need to know if a property lives on the instance itself or if it lives on the prototype the object delegates to. We can see this in action by looping over our leo object we've been creating. Let's say the goal was the loop over leo and log all of its keys and values. Using a for in loop, that would probably look like this.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    
    for(let key in leo) {
      console.log(`Key: ${key}. Value: ${leo[key]}`)
    }
    

    What would you expect to see? Most likely, it was something like this -

    Key: name. Value: Leo
    Key: energy. Value: 7
    

    However, what you saw if you ran the code was this -

    Key: name. Value: Leo
    Key: energy. Value: 7
    Key: eat. Value: function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    Key: sleep. Value: function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    Key: play. Value: function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    

    Why is that? Well a for in loop is going to loop over all of the enumerable properties on both the object itself as well as the prototype it delegates to. Because by default any property you add to the function's prototype is enumerable, we see not only name and energy, but we also see all the methods on the prototype - eat, sleep, and play. To fix this, we either need to specify that all of the prototype methods are non-enumerable or we need a way to only console.log if the property is on the leo object itself and not the prototype that leo delegates to on failed lookups. This is where hasOwnProperty can help us out.

    hasOwnProperty is a property on every object that returns a boolean indicating whether the object has the specified property as its own property rather than on the prototype the object delegates to. That's exactly what we need. Now with this new knowledge we can modify our code to take advantage of hasOwnProperty inside of our for in loop.

    ...
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    
    for(let key in leo) {
      if (leo.hasOwnProperty(key)) {
        console.log(`Key: ${key}. Value: ${leo[key]}`)
      }
    }
    

    And now what we see are only the properties that are on the leo object itself rather than on the prototype leo delegates to as well.

    Key: name. Value: Leo
    Key: energy. Value: 7
    

    If you're still a tad confused about hasOwnProperty, here is some code that may clear it up.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.eat = function (amount) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is eating.`)
      this.energy += amount
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.sleep = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is sleeping.`)
      this.energy += length
    }
    
    Animal.prototype.play = function (length) {
      console.log(`${this.name} is playing.`)
      this.energy -= length
    }
    
    const leo = new Animal('Leo', 7)
    
    leo.hasOwnProperty('name') // true
    leo.hasOwnProperty('energy') // true
    leo.hasOwnProperty('eat') // false
    leo.hasOwnProperty('sleep') // false
    leo.hasOwnProperty('play') // false
    

    Check if an object is an instance of a Class

    Sometimes you want to know whether an object is an instance of a specific class. To do this, you can use the instanceof operator. The use case is pretty straight forward but the actual syntax is a bit weird if you've never seen it before. It works like this

    object instanceof Class
    

    The statement above will return true if object is an instance of Class and false if it isn't. Going back to our Animal example we'd have something like this.

    function Animal (name, energy) {
      this.name = name
      this.energy = energy
    }
    
    function User () {}

              Programming Atmel with atprogram in LabVIEW      Cache   Translate Page      

    Hi everyone,

     

    I have created a VI for programming an Atmel processor and it somehow works, but I don't know why. I have installed Atmel Studio which comes with a command prompt utility. The utility itself opens another command line program which is called atprogram.exe which can be called together with commands and arguments which I need for the System Exec.vi. An example command is: atprogram -t samice -i JTAG -d ATSAM4S8C chiperase and if I run this command I get an error WindowsError: [Error 6] The handle is invalid together with some python errors at line x.

     

    I managed to get rid of this error by simply connecting the commands and arguments to the standard input input of the system exec.vi too (lucky guess). Does anyone know why this only works when the commands and arguments are connected to both inputs of the system exec.vi?

     

    I have placed the VI in the attachment, I could not find a similar solution so maybe it can be helpful to somebody.

              Why GPIO Zero Is Better Than RPi.GPIO for Raspberry Pi Projects      Cache   Translate Page      

    The Raspberry Pi is the perfect computer for learning. The linux-based Raspbian OS has python built in, which makes it a great first system for beginner coders. Its General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) pins make it easy for budding makers to experiment with DIY electronics projects.

    It’s especially easy when you use code libraries that control these pins, and the popular RPi.GPIO Python library is an excellent example of such a library. But is it the best path for beginners? Join us as we investigate.

    What Is GPIO Zero?

    The GPIO Zero library is a Python library for working with GPIO pins. It was written by Raspberry Pi community manager Ben Nuttall . Aimed at being intuitive and “friendly,” it streamlines Python code for most regular Raspberry Pi use cases.

    Combining simple naming practices and descriptive functions, GPIO Zero is more accessible for beginners to understand. Even seasoned users of the RPi.GPIO library may prefer it―and to understand why, let’s take a look at how RPi.GPIO compares to GPIO Zero.

    What’s Wrong With RPi.GPIO?

    Nothing. Nothing at all. RPi.GPIO was released in early 2012 by developer Ben Croston. It is a robust library allowing users to control GPIO pins from code. It features in almost every beginner project Raspberry Pi Projects for Beginners Raspberry Pi Projects for Beginners These 10 Raspberry Pi projects for beginners are great for getting an introduction to the hardware and software capabilities of the Pi, and will help you get up and running in no time! Read More we’ve covered.

    Despite its extensive use, RPi.GPIO was never designed for end users. It is a testament to RPi.GPIO’s good design that so many beginners use it nonetheless.

    What’s So Good About GPIO Zero?

    When you arelearning Python code, you learn that it should be easy to read and as short as possible. GPIO Zero aims to cover both points. Built on top of RPi.GPIO as a front-end language wrapper, it simplifies GPIO setup and usage.

    Consider the following example, setting up and turning on an LED:


    Why GPIO Zero Is Better Than RPi.GPIO for Raspberry Pi Projects

    The above code should be pretty familiar to anyone who has used their Pi to control LEDs .

    The RPi.GPIO library is imported, and a pin for the LED is declared. The pin layout type is set up (BCM and BOARD mode are explained in our GPIO guide Everything You Need to Know About Raspberry Pi GPIO Pins Everything You Need to Know About Raspberry Pi GPIO Pins The Raspberry Pi is a fantastic little computer, but what do the GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins do exactly? In short, they open up a whole world of DIY electronic tinkering and invention. Read More ), and the pin is set up as an output. Then, the pin is turned on.

    This approach makes sense, but the GPIO Zero way of doing it is much simpler:


    Why GPIO Zero Is Better Than RPi.GPIO for Raspberry Pi Projects

    GPIO Zero has a module for LEDs, imported at the start. This means you can declare the pin number, and call the led.on() method.

    Why Is GPIO Zero’s Approach Better?

    There are some reasons why this method of working is an improvement on RPi.GPIO.

    Firstly, it meets the “easy to read, short as possible” requirement. While the RPi.GPIO setup statements are easy enough to understand, they’re not necessary. An LED will always be an output, so GPIO Zero sets up the pins behind the scenes. The result is just three lines of code to set up, then light an LED.

    You might notice that there is no board mode setup in the GPIO Zero example. The library only uses Broadcom (BCM) numbering for the pins. Library designer Ben Nuttall explains why in a 2015 RasPi.tv interview :

    “BOARD numbering might seem simpler but I’d say it leads new users to think all the pins are general purpose―and they’re not. Connect an LED to pin 11, why not connect some more to pins 1, 2, 3 and 4? Well 1 is 3V3. 2 and 4 are 5V. A lack of awareness of what the purpose of the pins is can be dangerous.”

    Put this way, it makes absolute sense to use the BCM numbers. Given that it GPIO Zero will be standard in the Raspberry Pi documentation going forward, it’s worth learning!

    Is GPIO Zero Actually Better?

    While it seems more straightforward on the surface, does the new library have any problems? As with any new coding library, it is a matter of opinion. On the one hand, removing the setup code is excellent for beginners and seasoned coders alike. Writing code is more straightforward and quicker.

    On the other hand, knowing exactly what is going on is important for learning. Take the example of setting up a button from the GPIO Zero documentation :


    Why GPIO Zero Is Better Than RPi.GPIO for Raspberry Pi Projects

    The button module simplifies setup for push buttons. It knows buttons are inputs, so uses the declared pin number for setup. Checking for a button press is easier too, with the .is_pressed to detect button presses.

    We used this exact functionality in the Raspberry Pi button tutorial 2 Ways to Add a Button to Your Raspberry Pi Project 2 Ways to Add a Button to Your Raspberry Pi Project How do you connect a button to your Raspberry Pi? Here are two ways to get started, demonstrated using Python and an LED. Read More , which is a great way to familiarize yourself with the differences in the libraries.

    Users of the RPi.GPIO library will notice that the internal pull-up/pull-down resistors of the Pi are not set up in code. This raises an interesting question. Is it essential for beginners to know about pull-up/down resistors? Again, Ben Nuttall has an answer to this question:

    “You might argue that it’s good to know about pull ups and pull downs, and you’d be right―but why do I have to teach that on day one?[…] If you want to teach the electronics in more depth there’s plenty of scope for that―but it shouldn’t be mandatory if you’re just getting started.”

    On the whole, the simple approach of GPIO Zero is likely a good thing for beginners and veterans alike. Besides, RPi.GPIO isn’t going anywhere. It will always be there to switch back to if needed.

    Is Python the Only Option?

    Python is the language the Pi is known for, but it’s not the only option. If you are already familiar with programming in the C language, then Wiring Pi has you covered.

    Alternatively, if you already program in javascript, Node.js can easily be installed on the Pi. GPIO access is available through the rpi-gpio npm library . Ruby on Rails can also be installed on the Raspberry Pi, though the Pi might not be the best way to learn Rails !

    All of these alternatives, along with multi-language libraries like the excellent pigpio can make choosing a library confusing. This is where GPIO Zero excels: for beginners wondering how and where to start.

    If you are at a point where you need something it does not provide, you will be more than ready to dive into these other libraries at your own pace.

    Getting Started With GPIO Zero Yourself

    GPIO Zero is the newest library to make a splash for the Pi and with good reason. For most users, it makes coding for GPIO pins simpler to read and quicker to write.

    Given the Raspberry Pi’s usage in education, anything that makes learning more natural is a good thing. While RPi.GPIO has been perfect up until now, GPIO Zero takes a good idea and makes it even better.

    A great way to get started with GPIO Zero is to take a beginner project like theMusical Door Sensor Play Your Own Theme Tune When You Enter the Room With Raspberry Pi Play Your Own Theme Tune When You Enter the Room With Raspberry Pi Have you ever wanted to arrive home to a personal welcome?

    MATLAB is a high-level technical calculations language, an interactive development environment for algorithms and a modern data analysis tool. Compared to traditional programming languages ​​(C / C ++, Java, Pascal, FORTRAN), MATLAB makes it possible to shorten the time needed to solve typical problems by an order of magnitude and greatly simplifies the development of new algorithms.

              Kaitlan Collins and Channing Dungey      Cache   Translate Page      
    I believe Kaitlan Collins is tasting the bitterness of hypocrisy.


    . hammered the President in 2016 over his access Hollywood tapes. Now, her old tweets have surfaced. This must be her version of locker room talk. Instead of saying, I said, I meant it, she claims it was ignorant comments and that she didn’t mean it. 🧐
     


    Donald Trump is supposed to be an idiot.  What is Kaitlan Collins' excuse?  She has none.  She was in college and it was only a few years ago.  CNN really doesn't need her on the payroll.


    "TV: Who's destroying ABC?" (Ava and C.I., THE THIRD ESTATE SUNDAY REVIEW):
    The crash you hear is Channing tossing everything on her desk against the wall.


    LAST MAN STANDING would be a great TGIF program because the kids on the show are so popular.  And it is a hit Friday night program. 


    If that doesn’t bother Channing, certainly the fact that this hit show used to be on ABC until she cancelled it has to bother her.


    That’s right, ABC had the biggest hit of Fridays until Channing cancelled it.  Now FOX has the program and now FOX has the highest rated program on Friday nights.  And Channing?


    Take it away, Rona.

    Rona Barrett, “I am breaking the news today that an idiot is running – and ruining – ABC. . . ”


    Channing is an idiot.  ABC needs to fire her.  She's ruining the network.  Are they really going to wait until the end of the season to fire her?  She's destroying the ratings.  She needs to go.  She doesn't know a damn thing about programming.  I think I'm going to sell off my stock because I'm not in the mood to take a big loss while Disney and company humor her.


    "Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
    Tuesday, October 9, 2018.  The Iraq War continues, the US continues to occupy Iraq and the Iraqi people continue to suffer.  Useless idiots like Alyssa Milano pretend not to notice.  But we can make a difference with this month's March On The Pentagon.



    I'm tired.

    To the community and activists around the world, a 14 year old kid from was filmed being tortured, mutilated, and murdered. His last words were "I want to see my mother" Please raise awareness about this in order to pressure authorities to take action
     
     



    Aren't you tired?

    This is an important story.  Also an important story?  The attacks on Iraqi women which we've covered here repeatedly and made the topic of THIRD's "Editorial: If you are silent about the targeting of Iraqi women, you don't support women" yesterday.

    That's a real story too.  As is this.


    This is the Euphrates in & Unesco-listed Marshlands. Home to around 300,000 people, if they dry out people will have to leave. Under Saddam many fled to Tikrit etc. That's not possible with the security situation. So what next? We can't ignore this:
     
     
     



    Look it, I'm real sorry that Alyssa Milano wasn't able to have a clitoral orgasm last week because Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court.  It must have been a real blow for her.  It must have been the worst thing that ever, ever happened in the whole wide world judging by her idiotic and incessant Tweeting.  And whining.

    Let's not forget her whining or the whining of so many others.

    As they naval gaze and pick the lint out of their own belly buttons, taking time to reflect on me-me-me-me-always-me.

    How awful. How horrifying.  You do realize that nothing like this has ever, ever happened before.

    Except maybe . . .

    When John Roberts was confirmed to the bench.

    Or when Samuel Alito was.

    Or when Clarence Thomas was.

    Or . . .

    Oh, f**k, it happens over and over.

    And guess what, Alyssa and you other useless bitches?  American women go on.  The real women.  The ones who do the real work.  Not the ones whining constantly.  (Including whining to the paid staff that actually works their Twitter feeds.)

    Kavanaugh is not the end of the world.  Kavanaugh -- if he ends up as bad as so many believe he will be -- is not an aberration.  In the US, he is the historical norm.  And, over and over, we have addressed it and we have maintained our rights.  I think Alyssa and the other useless bitches are confusing their own desire to wallow in victimhood with living in HULU's HANDMAID'S TALE.  We don't live in that TV show (that bad TV show -- great novel, lousy TV).  We live in the United States of America and if the Alyssas would stop crawling, dust themselves off and stand the f**k up, they'd see millions of American women fighting real battles every day.

    They might also be able to look beyond American shores and see that people in the world are suffering much more than we are and maybe we could recognize that?

    The Iraqi people who suffer -- whether it's the women now being targeted or the LGBT community or those who have no where to flee to if their homeland cannot support them -- these people suffer because of the United States.

    It is our government that promised (lied) freedom and delivered ongoing war.

    And I know Alyssa has to spend a lot of time getting that hairy Italian mustache removed each month but it seems like even she could take a moment to grasp that the US government has not helped the Iraqi people and is not helping them.


    Last month, at THE NATIONAL INTEREST, Bonnie Kristian observed:




    The turmoil in Basra may be unsurprising given the living conditions locals face, but it should also be instructive. This is what regime change, fifteen years of intervention, occupation, and reconstruction in Iraq has wrought. This is what trillions of dollars borrowed and spent—and tens of thousands of American and Iraqi lives extinguished—have purchased.
    The protests in Basra are just one moment of ongoing political turmoil in Iraq, with all the security risks and human suffering that entails. They are an indictment in microcosm of Washington’s failed reliance on military intervention and nation-building as a panacea to local political problems in distant lands that don’t threaten America’s security, prosperity, or way of life.
     

    In Basra and Iraq more generally, Americans are presented with years of evidence that U.S. military intervention has failed to achieve strategically important, sustainable outcomes despite Washington’s best efforts. “Some might argue that trying harder, investing more billions, sending yet more equipment for perhaps another 15 years will produce more favorable results,” says military historian Ret. Col. Andrew Bacevich, but this is “a mug’s game.” There is nothing available to America in Iraq that might fairly be called a military victory, and repeating the mistakes of the past will not end differently the umpteenth time around.
    The same thing over and over.  That's all the US government has to offer -- regardless of who heads it.  And the Iraqi people suffer.

    And so many people try to raise awareness of it.  But we're up against little bitches who think that their bad plastic surgery and their advancing age that cost them roles is actually the greatest tragedy in the world.  This is what those of us who care about real issues have to compete with.

    And before the Alyssa Lying Milanos start lying and saying, "You don't care about assault!"  Oh, but I do.  You're the one who doesn't, Alyssa.

    I stood up for Illeana Douglas -- here, yes, but also in the real world.  I defended her.  I called out the hideous Leslie Moonves.  The Alyssa that pretends she invented MeToo never even managed to Tweet in defense of Ileana or, for that matter, against Leslie Moonves.  Because Leslie had power.  It's easy to go after Harvey Weinstein when he's bloodied and on the ropes, isn't it, Alyssa?  Not so easy to go after Leslie who, at the time, was in charge of CBS and could employ you.

    The Alyssa Milanos are the worst people in the world.  She has numerous nannies to raise her children.  She has no career -- don't confuse the pity cameos her husband gets her with actual roles or a career.  She pays a person to Tweet for her.  She has nothing but free time and instead of using it effectively, she appears to just use it pondering more and more plastic surgery while fretting whether all of the entertainment industry knows her younger husband is cheating on her (we do know, Alyssa, we do).

    Day after day, they pretend that they're doing something but they do nothing and apparently Professor Katherine Helmond, on the WHO'S THE BOSS CAMPUS,  wasn't able to teach her about I.F. Stone or the reality that all governments lie.  Alyssa blindly believes because she's a fool.  And maybe because Katherine's only real lesson is how to self-entertain -- I'll never forget the last time I saw her, 1999 in the lobby of a Marriott, plastered and hanging all over a young, 20-something male who looked uncomfortable and who ran for his life as soon as Katherine came over to say hello to me.

    Poor Alyssa.  She got the life teacher she deserved.  And, goodness, does it show.

    US has 800+ military bases & special ops deployed in 70% of nations. Pentagon is world's biggest polluter & exempt from int'l treaties. Time to build up real movement fighting empire. Join in DC Oct 20-21 to confront bipartisan war machine
     
     



    What!  Abby Martin's not paralyzed like Alyssa!  Kavanaugh didn't bring her to her knees!  Oh my goodness.  And Abby's not the only woman who can stand up.  Here's some more.



    Join us at the Pentagon on October 21st. Hear from YahNé Ndgo and others as we call for an end to the bipartisan war machine.

              MySQL Books - 2018 has been a very good year      Cache   Translate Page      
    Someone once told me you can tell how healthy a software project is by the number of new books each year.  For the past few years the MySQL community has been blessed with one or two books each year. Part of that was the major shift with MySQL 8 changes but part of it was that the vast majority of the changes were fairly minor and did not need detailed explanations. But this year we have been blessed with four new books.  Four very good books on new facets of MySQL.Introducing the MySQL 8 Document Store is the latest book from Dr. Charles Bell on MySQL.  If you have read any other of Dr. Chuck's book you know they are well written with lots of examples.  This is more than a simple introduction with many intermediate and advanced concepts covered in detail. Introducing the MySQL 8 Document Store MySQL & JSON - A Practical Programming Guide by yours truly is a guide for developers who want to get the most of the JSON data type introduced in MySQL 5.7 and improved in MySQL 8.  While I love MySQL's documentation, I wanted to provide detailed examples on how to use the various functions and features of the JSON data type.  MySQL and JSON A Practical Programming Guide Jesper Wisborg Krogh is a busy man at work and somehow found the time to author and co-author two books.  The newest is MySQL Connector/Python Revealed: SQL and NoSQL Data Storage Using MySQL for Python Programmers which I have only just received.  If you are a Python Programmer (or want to be) then you need to order your copy today.  A few chapters in and I am already finding it a great, informative read. MySQL Connector/Python Revealed Jesper and Mikiya Okuno produced a definitive guide to the MySQL NDB cluster with Pro MySQL NDB Cluster.  NDB cluster is often confusing and just different enough from 'regular' MySQL to make you want to have a clear, concise guidebook by your side.  And this is that book. Pro MySQL NDB Cluster RecommendationEach of these books have their own primary MySQL niche (Docstore, JSON, Python & Docstore, and NDB Cluster) but also have deeper breath in that they cover material you either will not find in the documentation or have to distill that information for yourself.  They not only provide valuable tools to learn their primary facets of technology but also provide double service as a reference guide.

John dives into what Q# is all about, being able to abstract away from the quantum hardware and various emulators so that you can explore quantum functions.

              THE ENEMY Comes to Firehall Arts Centre in November      Cache   Translate Page      

    The Firehall Arts Centre is proud to produce and present The Enemy from Saturday, November 10th to Saturday, December 1st, 2018.

    Set in a small town in British Columbia, The Enemy is a contemporary interpretation of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People. Dr. Stockman, played by Jenn Griffin, becomes a pariah when her discovery of pollution in the local Healthy Springs Spa and Water Park threatens the town's tourism industry and economic well-being. What happens when truth is declared not to be the truth and disbelief is spread through social media, 'fake news' and shoddy journalism? Who is the enemy?

    Adapted and directed by the Firehall Arts Centre's Artistic Producer Donna Spencer, The Enemy is a political drama with a plot that intertwines an ethically compromised antihero, political extremism, corruption, environmental activism and a lack of accountability for the destruction of a town. The Enemy features performances by Jenn Griffin, Paul Herbert, Peter Anderson, Daniel Arnold, Sharon Crandall, Brendan Houle, Michael Scholar Jr., Donna Soares and Agnes Tong.

    With regards to the choice of programming and producing this piece, Donna Spencer says, "Recently we witnessed a decision south of the border that many of that country's constituents did not support for good reasons. But the majority of those who had the power to vote supported the choice, angering thousands and potentially impacting hard-earned freedoms and rights. With the Firehall's presentation of The Enemy, I have adapted Henrik Ibsen's drama - which asks the question, is the majority always right? - and applied it to a contemporary issue not unlike the one faced by Ibsen's version of Dr. Stockman. In this contemporary context of The Enemy, the role of Dr. Stockman is written as a female and illustrates the challenges that women face when confronting and disputing the 'powers-that-be' or as some would say 'the old boys' club'".

              一個解決香港土地供應的「終極方案」      Cache   Translate Page      


    首先強調,本文屬個人建議,本人是退休公務員,並不代表任何人、任何團體,沒有任何私人利益,所以絕對獨立。

    一個解決香港土地供應的「終極方案」
    An Ultimate Solution for Land Supply in Hong Kong

    前言

    1. 香港可供發展而又未發展的土地基本上全在新界,這些土地直至七零年代末期仍大部份用作農業用途,地契全屬「集體官契」(Block Crown Lease)。

    2. 按地契,業主沒有發展權(注:牽涉建築物條例下的構建物)。這些農地絕大部份地勢平坦,粗略估算,面積大概有八千到一萬公頃。

    3. 七零年代中期開始,政府在新界拓展新市鎮,除了大量填海外,就是以「官地收回條例」收回農地。新市鎮以外的農地,因為1983年一個法庭案例,地貌大變。時至今日,新界農地有一大部份被改作其他用途,環境受到很大的破壞; 更大部份被荒廢。據政府估計,現在只有不多於四百公頃是活耕地。

    4. 另一方面,人口增加,住屋需求增加,應付經濟發展等原因,香港需要大量土地以供發展。究竟土地應從那裏來,是今日社會最熱議議題。政府委任的「土地供應專責小組」(下簡稱小組)提出多項建議增加土地供應,其中有幾項是針對新界農地的,已經進行公眾諮詢四個多月了。

    小組公私營合作(PPP)建議

    5. 小組的建議如下:

    a. 新界有大量私人擁有農地閒置。

    b. 原因是閒置土地缺乏基礎設施(基建)。

    c. 小組建議政府提供基建作為誘因,誘使閒置土地業主發展住屋。

    d. 條件是業主要把一定比例的(土地或房屋單位?)作公共房屋用途。

    e. 這就是一個小組委員常掛在口邊的: 「政府出豉油,業主出雞」方法。

    事實是什麼?

    6. 眾所周知,新界面積大、有規模、屬於單一業權的農地,擁有者主要是香港幾大地産發展商。當然還有數以百計的小業主,但相信他們並不是 PPP 的對象; 或是說他們根本沒有條件跟政府做「伙伴」。

    7. 過去二十多三十年,地産發展商在新界原農地改建為大型私人屋苑的過程告訴我們:

    a. 這些大型私人屋苑所座落之農地,原本也完全沒有基建。

    b. 只要農地面積夠大,要解決高密度發展所需之基建易如反掌,完全不是問題,而所需成本,相對整項發展所需成本,微不足道。

    (事實上,要求發展商在規劃藍圖以外的發展(俗稱「野貓」式發展,Sporadic Development)要自行完全解決,以及自資興建,所需基建是國際慣例。以英國為例,除了規劃批准制度外,還有特别條例管制設施的提供 e.g. Section 52 Agreement(TCPA 1971),now Section 106 Agreement(TCPA 1990)。亦即是說,香港處理這類發展模式跟外國處理方法相似。) 

    c. 在香港,這些發展有一特色,就是整項發展由規劃批准到完工時間很長(現在興建中的項目,很多是二十多年前「發屋癲」(即推行八萬五)時已獲規劃批准),這跟香港一般商人做事非常有效率的名聲背道而馳。主要原因是發展商「拖工」,相信是要配合公司的商業運作,包括售樓目標,業務規劃等,更不會讓供應充斥市場,影響節節上升的價格。其實這也是價格操控的技倆

    d. 過往的例子告訴我們,這些地產商現在手上的所謂「閒置」農地,並非「閒置」,而是他們的「土地儲備」。暫時放在一旁也絕非因為沒有基建,或者沒有方法解決現時缺乏基建的問題。

    e. 這些「土地儲備」對他們的公司業務、公司商業運作的短期、中期以至長期的持續發展都非常重要,因此也對其公司股價非常重要。

    地產商面臨的挑戰

    8. 地產商手上的新界農地,相信主要在上世紀 80 年代初期開始集結,而位置都是在當時已訂定的新市鎮邊界以。而政府直到現在為止,在新界發展住屋,主要還是集中在新市鎮

    9. 在新市鎮,對於農地的處理,政府的政策是非常清晰的,也是非常一貫的(very consistent),就是以「官地收回條例」收回發展,對原業主以農地價格作出賠償(現金;Letter A(A 類換地權益書);Letter B 等制度,可在綱上查到)。在發展藍圖裏面的農地是完完全全的收回,以作土地平整,興建基建等,土地整理工程完成後,土地就依據規劃藍圖上規劃好的用途配置或出售。

    10. 跟據「官地收回條例」,港督會同行政局(簡稱 ExCo,或今天的「行政會議」)決定強制收回土地就會被視為為了「公眾利益」;而條例亦容許收回的土地,可再被拍賣或以私人合約再批租。或許有人會問,收回私人土地,經處理後(一些)土地又拍賣作私人發展,莫非英國人不尊重私有産權?莫非港英政府不知收回私人農地用作發展所牽涉的業權問題嗎? 答案當然是: 非也! 政府當年的考慮,應該是若發展留給原農地業主,時間性會變得非常不確定,由於適時及全面落實規劃藍圖是回應社會需要,牽涉重大公衆利益,因此 Programming 及 Integrity of Plan 應比農地業權更重要,做法跟英國發展新市鎮時的做法是一樣的。

    11. 其實政府這做法,在 1991 年曾遭法律挑戰。申訴人認為行政會議決定將私人土地,包括農地和屋地,收回之後又將土地拍賣作商住用途(法定大綱圖上指示用途),不應視為為「公眾利益」。當年高等法院判政府勝訴(Chan Lau Fong and Others vs AG)。

    12. 因此,我們可以很肯定的說,地產商當年在新界新市鎮以集結農地是純粹的「炒賣行為」。因為若政府當年擴展新市鎮的邊界,到以外的地方,這些農地必被根據一貫政策強制收回無疑,地產商一定心知肚明。但由於種種原因,政府並沒有這樣做,就算 1996 年發表全港發展策略檢討報告,建議發展洪水橋、古洞、粉嶺北等新市鎮,這些建議也一直沒有進展。

    13. 到 90 年代香港「發屋癲」,造就機會讓地產商建議在其手上農地上大規模發展高密度住宅。既然他們能完全解決基建等問題,又獲城規會批准,政府作為土地大業主,也樂於為這些發展更新地契(正確的叫「原址換地」 In Situ Land Exchange)。不單如止,政府更為這些發展度身訂造政策,即農地需大於一定面積,才接受換地發展。這政策間接鼓勵「囤積」土地,而囤積的自然結果就當然是「居奇」,這亦是很多人指責政府政策造就了地產霸權的出現。

    14. 原來「牛屎」真的可以變成「黃金」

    15. 時移勢易(或「逆」),現時社會要求政府推展新一輪的新市鎮發展以滿足住屋需求的呼聲和壓力很大。若政府落實推展新一輪的新市鎮在新界發展,而又用「一貫政策」、「行之有效」的政策強制收回農地,地產商手上的未用的「黃金」,隨時變番「牛屎」!

    16. 大家想想,地產商會「甘心」嗎?

    究竟「公私合營」(PPP)是誰的主意?會有效嗎?

    17. 地產商基於面對的「危機」,一定出盡法寶,試圖影響政府政策。因此有理由相信,他們一方面向政府提出公私合營的概念,誘使政府改變政策﹔另一方面,透過不同渠道威脅政府,若政府依循「一貫」、「行之有效」政策,就以司法覆核(JR)回應,拖垮政府的工作。

    18. 假如政府「落搭」,採用公私合營模式,這方法會有效地、快速地提供大量公私營房屋嗎? 答案簡單不過 — 這是不會發生的。由於政府無權指令地產商何時開展和結束合作商討,政府的角色完全被動。因為地產商要(或只會)顧及自身利益,即商業及業務運作,而要長遠、持續、依據市場情況做生意,才可有力支持股價。地產商到時只會跟政府拉拉扯扯,「時辰到」就公私合營﹔而政府就被人拖住鼻子走,再一次俾人「搵笨」﹗

    19. 當然,亦有很大可能是小組基於無知,錯誤理解,又或出於不設實際的良好願望,去「勾搭」或「勾引」地產商。

    20. 如果是這樣的話,後果會更差。因為,簡單來說,去「求人」是不會「矜貴」的。若政府急於求成,地產商只會「吊高嚟賣」,叫價更高(比如在時間方面、比如在公私屋比例、比如政府出錢的比例、比如補地價等議題)﹗到時香港人就俾小組送了上「賊船」。

    21. 當然,公私合營也可能是一個「裏應外合」的建議,即大家明知性質及效果,仍然走埋一齊,向香港人推薦。政府明知後果,仍把重大公眾利益(適時興建資助房屋)押注在只顧股東利益的地產商身上,公私合營就是「徹頭徹尾」的官商勾結,而且是公然的官商勾結,將官商勾結制度化。這樣做,特區政府的道德,比 97 年前殖民地政府的道德更差﹗

    運用「收回土地條例」— 政府的難處

    22. 如果政府落實在新界推行新一輪的新市鎮發展,社會上要求以「一貫政策」,即行使「收回土地條例」強制收回農地的呼聲將很大。

    23. 其實政府也有難言之隱。我相信地產商一定已經透過不同渠道讓政府知道,若以「一貫政策」收地,就會向政府提司法覆核。

    24. 地產商威脅向政府提司法覆核,應該不會是針對新市鎮規劃藍圖上所指定的「公眾用途」所座落的農地被收回的行動。亦即是說,有些立法會議員最近向政府提問,有關過往JR公眾用途的法庭判決結果,是完全捉錯用神!

    25. 地產商若就政府收地提出司法覆核,所針對的,應該是規劃藍圖上指定作住宅發展所座落的農地被收回的行動。亦即是說,政府為可要用「收回土地條例」收回私人農地,然後又賣作(私人)住宅發展?這樣做是否侵犯由基本法保障的私有產權?(讀者可參考第 10 和 11 段)

    26. 政府在新界「新發展區」內收地,應該也是引用「收回土地條例」的。亦即是在第 10 段所說,首先政府要得到行政會議同意這樣的收地是為了「公眾利益」。究竟 行政會議會否如港英政府的看法一樣,即是 Programming 和 Integrity of Plan 比農地業主業權更重要?法院在 1991 年的判決雖然已確定做法合法。

    27. 落實發展計劃,優先於農地地主業權。過往新市鎮確立前,特首(或九七前稱的港督)跟行政會議為收地訂明「公共用途」,便能啟動收地程序。不過,就算今天的行政會議跟港英政府看法一樣,相信地産商很大可能不會同意,尋找各種理由向政府提司法覆核是意料中事。雖然過往有關收回土地的司法覆核政府全勝,但今天地產商可能用盡各種方法拖夸政府。以往收地是「一貫政策」,今天的政府卻說這沿用已久的方法行不通,究竟是出口術還是甚麼原因?政府尚欠市民一個說法。

    結語

    28. 發展新界農地面對的問題,歸根究底是農地的「現有價值」(Present Value)與  「預期價值」(Hope Value)相差太遠。每塊農地的業主都夢想自己的「牛屎」會有一日變成「黃金」,因此都不願盡早釋放農地作發展用途。這個原因不單適用於荒廢農地,也適用於解釋為何發展棕地也困難重重。但事實上,香港只有極少、極少的農地業主擁有「魔術棒」。

    29. 近年農地的「預期價值」不斷上升,夢想正在發高燒,溫度節節上升。但社會不單沒人想辦法去降溫,還將乾柴放入烈火!小組的工作,實質就是間接把大量乾柴放入烈火,因為當你大聲疾呼,說新界的農地要發展,但又「好難攪」,又要跟業主公私合營,勾搭他們,新界農地的業主一定感覺飄飄然!當你話,公開咁話,要「勾搭」他們的時候,他們就自覺更加「矜貴」,對嗎?

    30. 要徹徹底底解決這種遺害香港社會的極不合理的「預期價值」,又由極少數人壟斷的「練金術」,我們一定要回歸基本,即「牛屎」就是「牛屎」!只有當「現有價值」與「預期價值」相同,或甚至「下跌」,在新界的土地供應問題才可徹底地被解決。

    建議的「終極解決方案」

    31. 我們處理新界發展,必須瞭解香港的土地管理制度。簡單而言:

    a. 香港實行「有年期限制的土地批租」制度,英文叫 Leasehold System。全港的土地,除了一塊在花園道的地皮,都屬於政府所有(正確地說是屬於國家,政府負責管理(BL Section 7))。

    b. 政府是土地的大業主(Landlord and Lessor),然後透過不同方法,將土地批租給承租人(Lessee)。所有批租土地都有年期限制,都有到期的一天。

    c. 本人建議的「終極方案」,是建基於這個土地管理制度的。

    32. 請讀者留意(事後也不要被誤導),這個方案只適用於新界農地(原因請參看第 33a 段),是只針對新界農地(即是 Block Crown Lease)的方案,是不適用於農地以外的其他土地。這點非常重要。方案包括四部份(或是四個元素)。

    33. 第一個元素:

    a. 有鑑於新界絕大部份農地的原用途經已過時(Obsolete); 有鑑於新界農地的自然環境因為不同原因受到極大破壞;有鑑於現時管理新界農地的法制在幾十以至一百年前制訂,現在已極不合時宜;為了回應社會不同的土地的極大需求;更為了香港這一代,以至下一代、再下一代人的發展需要和福祉,建議政府不需引用任何法律,只需以「批租人」的身份,修改土地管理政策。

    b. 特區政府,以新界農地地主及批租人的身份(As Landlord and Lessor),盡快宣佈,2047 年 6 月 30 日,即現時所有批租農地到期日,之後全部不會續租。(讀者留意,這不是收地,衹是二十九年後不再續租)

    34. 第二個元素:

    a. 特區政府,以新界農地地主及批租人身份,盡快宣佈,從即日開始到租約期滿日,不會為任何承租人更改農地地契,作其他用途。

    35. 第三個元素:

    a. 特區政府同時宣佈,由即時起到 2047 年 6 月 30 日租約完結為止,分開不同階(或時)段(可分三、四、五個或更多時段),承租人可在不同時段把農地提早退租,歸還政府。在愈早時段退租,可得特惠補償(現金)愈多,愈接近 2047 年,可得特惠補償愈少。2047 年 6 月 30 日到期,政府自動收回土地,因為沒有退租的地,特惠補償是零。

    b. 提早退租以後,若土地不需要即時發展,政府可以短期租約再批給原承租人或現有土地使用人,作適當用途,例如農耕。

    36. 第四個元素:

    a. 由現時到 2047 年農地租約期滿為止,政府仍然保留運用「收回土地條例」,強制提早收回土地(可参考第 48 段),所給補償跟「時段退租特惠補償」大致相同。

    預期效果

    37. 透過改變現時土地管理制度,方案可即時改變新界農地的「預期價值」,農地即時沒有「預期價值」,或「預期價值」快速下降。因此可以預期,在短期內會有大量農地的業主提早退租,把農地業權歸還政府。

    Augustine 你嘅建議癲唔癲啲啊?

    38. 唔癲,因為現時政府根據社會不時轉變嘅需要,經已不時行使業主的權利不續租,或不同意承租人申請更改用途,例如 60 年代落實中環公共行人通道(pedestrian streets)、汽油站地契、南生圍發展等。不過我同意方案所覆蓋的面積大,因為目的宏大。

    39. 其實這樣做也體現香港土地制度的精神,即 Leasehold 的目的;否則,土地的年期會變相成為永久性(In Perpetuity),後者並不是香港土地制度的本意。

    40. 這個方案絕對沒有對任何農地的承租人的現有地契上的權益作出改變,或作出任何傷害。其實,新界農地本來的租期是 99(75 + 24)年,到 1997 年 6 月 30 日已經到期。自 1997 年 7 月 1 日起,農地業主完全無需補地價,土地自動續期 50 年,可謂已經得益不少。2047 年後因爲整體社會需要而不再續租,業主現在的地契上的權益絕對沒有損失。

    41. 因此,建議是一個公平、顧全香港大眾利益、有效在短、中、以至長期提供土地的方案。

    方案有法律風險嗎?

    42. 政府行使的權力,是普通法下賦予土地業主的權利(即Landlord’s Prerogative),業主作為批租人,有「絕對決定權」(Absolute Discretion)跟承租人續或不續租相關土地。

    43. 政府不需要引用任何現行的法律,因此被承租人根據現行法律挑戰的機會微乎其微。

    44. 由於 2047 年 6 月 30 日以後不續租,因此方案在基本法以外,不受基本法約束。但就算以現時基本法有關土地的條文,即第 6、84 及 105 條審視,也不違反。

    45. 唯一可能被 JR 的理據,是「業主有合理期望」續約。但若政府在現時(即 29 年前)已公報不續約,被成功用這理據 JR 的機會也微乎其微。

    46. 我曾諮詢極資深土地管理專家,他認為方案在法理上被挑戰成功的風險相當低,方案切實可行。

    方案的好處,相比小組各項建議

    47. 方案可短期內釋放大量土地以供發展,最終「天下兵器盡歸」。粗略估計,新界農地全退租或到期後,總共面積應不少於八千公頃。收回土地後,政府便有空間及機會,為新界訂定全面發展、環境復修、以及保育策略,重新全面規劃土地用途,全面提供大量房屋,改善現時受破壞的自然環境,促進經濟發展。

    48. 其實政府亦無需等待土地退租,當建議方案推出後,政府可立即以「收回土地條例」進行收地(即方案第四個元素),推展已規劃多年的三個新市鎮。由於建議方案第一及第二元素,政府收地時可能面對司法覆核的威脅應該解除了﹗至於清拆等前期工作,因為有地,面對受影響人士要求安置等問題也就更容易解決了。

    49. 政府完全取回土地供應的主導權,亦即是說,政府對樓市、樓價、居住面積等一直困擾香港人的問題有更大,甚至主導的影響力。

    50. 因為預期會有大量土地供應,小組諮詢文件裏的選項,很多會變得毫無需要(如大規模填海、開發郊野公園),社會上有些訢求(如利用軍事用地、粉嶺高球場、填平淡水湖等)也變得毫無需要。方案因此會減低社會爭拗,促進和諧。

    51. 方案將徹底解決香港土地供應問題,未來 30-40 年或許再無需要重覆又重覆地討論土地供應問題。

    52. 相反,小組建議的大部份選項是「雙輸」的方法。因為一方面對於我們在新界擁有大量的土地資源無法有效釋放,對新界土地資源受到嚴重破壞一籌莫展;另一方面又建議大量破壞環境,包括開發郊野公園及大規模填海。這些建議將社會帶向永無休止的爭拗,香港將永無寧日。

    53. 我們若依小組的建議方向走下去,不單爭拗不斷,香港的規劃發展,以至香港的管治水平將成爲國際笑柄。比如最近在網上已有評論瘋傳,其中一熟識香港規劃發展的新加坡人批評,說香港不是缺乏土地,而是管理不善

    方案提供的機會 

    54. 在房屋方面,政府可為新界重新訂定完整規劃,然後興建兩個、三個,甚至四個「新玫瑰園」,大量提供公私型房屋,以及優質的居住環境。在促進經濟發展方面,由於預期有大量建築工程、基建項目,經濟應會非常活躍。

    55. 在改善環境方面,香港市郊環境過去二、三十年受到嚴重破壞,一塌糊塗。世界各地的大城市,一般來說,市民對他們的市郊都感到非常驕傲,每當有親友到訪,都樂於帶他們逛遊市郊。作為亞洲之世界城市、國際金融中心,我們的市郊,是香港人很大的羞恥。

    56. 過往政府在改善新界環境的工作,如九零年代初 Blackspot Task Force 的工作,成效不彰。現時的方案提供機會全面整治新界環境,提升香港形象。

    方案會導致社會不穩嗎?

    57. 應該不會,因為就算土地歸還政府,除非土地需用作即時發展,否則政府仍然可以通過短期租約,讓現有用途、經濟活動保留,直至重新規劃完成,為這些用途提供新地點。

    方案需注意的地方

    58. 由於方案「超越」2047 年,又牽涉「國家土地」,應得到中央政府支持及同意。

    59. 特首很可能會被「萬箭穿心」,因此她需要有很大的政治決心。但我對她很有信心,因為她曾在電視機前公開表白,她在制訂政策時是不會理會地產商的利益,她只會關心社會大眾的福祉。

    60. 預期短期內需要大量現金作特惠補償(究竟多少,暫時完全是未知數)。因土地有價,政府可透過成立特別基金,發行債券籌集資金。資金應絕對不是問題。

    總結

    61. 建議是一個合法、合理、合情、公開、公平、合乎公義、有效果、能照顧大眾的短、中、長期利益, 令香港社會更和諧,並切實可行,法律風險極低,的方案。

    62. 我說建議是公平、合乎公義,原因是無理由小市民炒樓就受政府大力打擊,反而大財團炒賣新界農地,囤積居奇,蠶食香港人整體利益,政府不單無動於衷,還萬般呵護。建議將徹底洗脫政府造就地產霸權和官商勾結的形象!

    63. 再者,土地業權到期,就歸政府所有。政府有責任及義務重新審視及分配資源,不能一次又一次地不收地價的續期,讓個別人仕操控樓宇供應。

    64. 方案徹底解決短期以至長期的土地供應問題,譲政府可依據社會需要,大量提供住屋。方案可提供機會,讓政府可全面重新規劃新界,全面提升環境,除住屋外大量提供土地發展經濟,提供就業,促進社會和諧。

    65. 最後,我希望政府可以積極回應建議。如果政府能落實方案,林鄭特首便是真真正正為香港人做大事,惠及香港平民百姓。而且不單是這一代,起碼兩三代的香港人。林鄭將名留青史!

    The last couple of weeks I have been working through some proof of concepts for Windows Phone 7.  While working through one exercise I had a flashback.  The book I was reading mentioned how you needed to code your application to have the smallest possible memory and and processing speed footprint.  Suddenly I was back in high school with my Tandy hand-held computer which had a single line of text screen and a whopping 1K of memory.  Talk about limitations.

    So what else can you learn from developing in such environment constraints.  I think we could all benefit from spending some time doing code where we really have to think about how we are putting it together.  We would have developers who produce much tighter and well performing code as they carry those skills back to desktop and web development.  Maybe these devices should be required learning in our college classes.  Any thoughts?

    It was another engaging presentation at this month’s CITAG meeting as Joe Hummel presented functional programming and its implementation using F#.  Some times it is fun to attack a mind bending problem and this was one of those times.  Leaning about functional programming caused about the same brain cramps as moving from procedural to object oriented for the first time.  Of course when you start to get it the effect is almost euphoric.  I would suggest that if you haven’t looked into functional programming that you should check out Joe’s information below.

              Economics Nobel Laureate Paul Romer Is a Python Programming Convert      Cache   Translate Page      
    Economist Paul Romer, a co-winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in economics, uses the programming language python for his research , according to Quartz. Romer reportedly tried using Wolfram Mathematica to make his work transparent, but it didn't work so he converted to a Jupyter notebook instead. From the report:

    Romer believes in making research transparent. He argues that openness and clarity about methodology is important for scientific research to gain trust. As Romer explained in an April 2018 blog post , in an effort to make his own work transparent, he tried to use Mathematica to share one of his studies in a way that anyone could explore every detail of his data and methods. It didn't work. He says that Mathematica's owner, Wolfram Research, made it too difficult to share his work in a way that didn't require other people to use the proprietary software, too. Readers also could not see all of the code he used for his equations.

    Instead of using Mathematica, Romer discovered that he could use a Jupyter notebook for sharing his research. Jupyter notebooks are web applications that allow programmers and researchers to share documents that include code, charts, equations, and data. Jupyter notebooks allow for code written in dozens of programming languages. For his research, Romer used Python -- the most popular language for data science and statistics. Importantly, unlike notebooks made from Mathematica, Jupyter notebooks are open source, which means that anyone can look at all of the code that created them. This allows for truly transparent research. In a compelling story for The Atlantic, James Somers argued that Jupyter notebooks may replace the traditional research paper typically shared as a PDF.

    Is Nikki Haley jumping off a sinking ship? (Jacob Heilbrunn, October 9, 2018, The Spectator)

    Her announcement caught Trump flatfooted, coming after the previous evening's revelries at the White House, where he turned a ceremony for newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh into a political pep rally that is likely to further enrage his detractors and opponents. The sudden defection of one of his big stars is exactly the kind of television programming that Trump loathes, particularly on the eve of the November midterm elections, which Politico says look increasingly ominous for Republican control of the House of Representatives.

    Neocons such as Bill Kristol are celebrating, convinced that this augurs a run by Haley in 2020. She was seen as a standard-bearer for a more mainstream Republican foreign policy as opposed to Trump's nationalist sallies.

    Video: That 70's Show Girls - Studio Wrestling (Colorized & Silent)
    Watch This Video!
    Studio: World Novelties
    From the standpoint of girls wrestling, catfighting, mudwrestling and the like, the 70's really started bringing the fare from the underground to the mainstream.
    Spawning in the late 1960's, television began to grow. Back in the day, there were three stations---networks ABC, NBC, and CBS. This was VHF TV. Suddenly, one, then two, UHF stations started cropping up in the major markets across the country. Rabbit ears or the roof antenna were still in vogue, but choices and variety had begun. Yes, the harbinger of the glut of what we have today.
    Since these stations could only run canned copy or syndicated re-runs of already made shows, they had way too much empty space to fill on their airwaves. Info-mercials had not even made it to the womb yet. Co-axial cable was still a decade away, so all spaghetti connections were 300 ohm, cheesy wires. The butter knife replaced the screwdriver.
    For improved reception, yes----tin foil and aluminum tape were used to extend those droopy rabbit ears.
    Local news, features, sports and related programming got boring real fast. Enter Saturday afternoon, evening and Sunday pro wrestling cards. Each city had a balding, humpty-dumpty promoter and his side-kick lackey. These guys sometimes doubled as ringside announcers and referees.
    The bold visionaries in these troupes decided to bring the ladies into the studios to be part of the hour long cards. This was when interviews and bullshit were kept to a minimum and the emphasis was on wrestling.
    This entry showcases some of that fare from those days. Now, this could be construed as an info-mercial of its time: the studio shows and matches all led up to the once or twice a month live arena show.
    These places were pits----union halls, masonic temples, civic theatres and pseudo auditoriums, complete with stale air, limited or no ventilation and the smog screen of cigar and cigarette smoke. Concessions were limited to cold hot dogs, stale buns, unknown chips and warm beer. Patrons were permitted to bring their own brown bags of hard stuff, if they chose.
    The sounds of empty, rolling and kicked bottles added to the ambiance of these shitholes. The big show was always on the first Thursday of the month----after all the welfare and food stamp checks cleared. Their words, not mine. Prime seats were 5 dollars, but cost ten if purchased with food stamps. Ringside ho.
    This entry also glosses over some mixed tag team matches, although the girls action is what we highlight, but you can still see the guys outside the ring. And again, these girls wrestled and did so for a long time, not some two or three minute quickie like you see today. Truly a collector's and history buffs dream delight. Enjoy.
    And some of these girls are smoking hot, cover girls for sure and some are those corn fed, bottle blondes that signified the fashions of the times. Even tossed in a modern auditorium setting at the back.

              OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita      Cache   Translate Page      

    OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita
    Credit: InbalSinai What is Akita ?

    Akita is a state management pattern, built on top of RxJS , which takes the idea of multiple data stores from Flux and the immutable updates from Redux, along with the concept of streaming data, to create the Observable Data Store model .

    Akita encourages simplicity. It saves you the hassle of creating boilerplate code and offers powerful tools with a moderate learning curve, suitable for experienced and inexperienced developers alike.

    Akita is based on object-oriented design principlesinstead of functional programming, so developers with OOP experience should feel right at home. Its opinionated structure provides your team with a fixed pattern that cannot be deviated from.

    :construction_worker: Akita’s Architecture
    OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita
    Akita’s Architecture High-level Principles

    1. The Store is a single object that contains the store state and serves as the “single source of truth.”

    2. The only way to change the state is by calling setState() or one of the update methods based on it.

    3. A component should NOT get data from the store directly but instead use a Query.

    4. Asynchronous logic and update calls should be encapsulated in services and data services.

    Let’s learn about Akita’s core concepts by creating the traditional Todo application.

    CoreConcepts

    The Store

    The basic store can contain any form of data that you want, but in most cases, you will prefer working with an entity store. You can think of an entity store as a table in a database where each row represents an entity.

    Akita entity stores give you all the tools you need to manage your store easily, such as CRUD operations on entities, active entity management, error management, etc.

    First, we must define the store’s interface. We extend the EntityState from Akita, providing it with the Todo entity type.

    If you are curious, EntityState has the following signature:

    Note that in addition to the todos entities, the store root holds a state that contains the active ui filter. Here’s a visualization of our store:


    OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita
    Spoiler!! Akita supports Redux dev-tools. The Model

    The model is a representation of an entity. Let’s take for example a todo:

    Akita recommends creating both a type and a factory function in charge of building the entity. ( in a case of an entity store )

    The Query

    The Query is how we get data from the store. Like the store, it has two types: query for basic stores, and query for entity stores.

    You can classify the query methods into two types. A method that starts with select , for which you will get an observable for the requested data, and a method that starts with get , in which you will receive the requested data once and directly.

    It’s important to emphasize that the subscription won’t be triggered unless the value you requested is changed by reference, freeing you from using something like re-select.

    We extended the QueryEntity from Akita. Its constructor function receives as parameters its own store and possibly other query classes.

    Here, you will receive from Akita a lot of built-in functionality, including methods such as selectAll() , selectEntity() , selectMany() , selectActive() , selectLoading() , etc.

    The built-in select() method selects a slice from the store. In our case, we need to combine the active filter with the current todos to find the visible todos and display them to the user.

    The Service

    Akita recommends that asynchronous logic and update calls be encapsulated in services, so let’s continue by creating a service that is responsible for the todos crud operations.

    The code is self-explanatory. We use Akita’s built-in methods to perform crud operations on our todos store.

    AkitaCLI

    Akita offers a CLI tool, enabling you to generate stores based on the specifications quickly.


    OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita
    It’s Time toReact

    Akita encourages the modeling of smart and dumb (aka stateless and stateful ) components’ architecture. This combination allows us to use React’s PureComponent to improve performance.

    If a component depends only on its props, and they are immutable, then this component can change only if one of its propschanges.

    Presentational Components

    Presentational components describe how things look . Typically, they receive data via props and communicate via events.

    Let’s create our presentational components:

    Container Components

    Container components are concerned with how things work . They provide the data and behavior to presentational or other container components.

    Let’s create a TodosPage component in charge of displaying a list of todos filtered by the active filter:

    The component reactively receives data from the query and delegates store updates to the service.

    This is how we establish a one-way data flow with a precise architecture that you can’t deviate from.

    Let’s see it in action with the dev-tools:


    OOP and RxJS: Managing State in React with Akita

    As you can see, Akita also supports store-based or entity-based redo-undo functionality.

    :heart_eyes: Akita inDatorama

    Behind Akita there is a company ― Datorama. Datorama invests a lot of time and effort in developing and improving Akita to make it better for us and the community, allowing us to give back to the community for all that it gives us.

    Additionally, before we released it to the community, Akita was used internally here for over eight months, during which it passed our tests, bugs were fixed, and feature requests were added.

    Our product is a big data product. We have vast amounts of data on the client, and Akita handles it amazingly.

    :sunglasses: Not Only forAngular

    Here in Datorama we work with Angular, so until today, Akita was Angular-oriented, although we’ve built it in such way that it is not coupled to Angular. Our goal was to create Framework-Agnostic state management that can work with Angular, React, Web components and vanilla javascript.

    Actually we’ve begun to work with React on several internal projects. We feel that we’ve come to the point where we can push non-Angular developers to use it. We believe that, in addition to all Akita’s advantages, the beauty of Akita is that, when you’re migrating from one framework to another or reading our Angul
              5 Things You Have Never Done with a REST Specification      Cache   Translate Page      

    What is a RESTful API?

    It’s a myth.

    If you think that your project has a RESTfulAPI, you are most likely mistaken. The idea behind a RESTful API is to develop in a way that follows all the architectural rules and limitations that are described in the REST specification. Realistically, however, this is largely impossible in practice.

    On the one hand, REST contains too many blurry and ambiguous definitions. For example, in practice, some terms from the HTTP method and status code dictionaries are used contrary to their intended purposes, or not used at all.

    On the other hand, REST development creates too many limitations. For example, atomic resource use is suboptimal for real-world APIs that are used in mobile applications. Full denial of data storage between requests essentially bans the “user session” mechanism seen just about everywhere.

    But wait, it’s not that bad!

    What Do You Need A REST API Specification for?

    Despite these drawbacks, with a sensible approach, REST is still an amazing concept for creating really great APIs . These APIs can be consistent and have a clear structure, good documentation, and high unit test coverage. You can achieve all of this with a high-quality API specification .

    Usually a REST API specification is associated with its documentation . Unlike a specification―a formal description of your API―documentation is meant to be human-readable: for example, read by the developers of the mobile or web application that uses your API.

    A correct API description isn’t just about writing API documentation well. In this article I want to share examples of how you can:

    Make your unit tests simpler and more reliable; Set up user input preprocessing and validation; Automate serialization and ensure response consistency; and even Enjoy the benefits of static typing.

    But first, let’s start with an introduction to the API specification world.

    OpenAPI

    OpenAPI is currently the most widely accepted format for REST API specifications. The specification is written in a single file in JSON or YAML format consisting of three sections:

    A header with the API name, description, and version, as well as any additional information. Descriptions of all resources, including identifiers, HTTP methods, all input parameters, response codes, and body data types, with links to definitions. All definitions that can be used for input or output, in JSON Schema format (which, yes, can also be represented in YAML.)

    OpenAPI’s structure has two significant drawbacks: It’s too complex and sometimes redundant. A small project can have a JSON specification of thousands of lines. Maintaining this file manually becomes impossible. This is a significant threat to the idea of keeping the specification up-to-date while the API is being developed.

    There are multiple editors that allow you to describe an API and produce OpenAPI output. Additional services and cloud solutions based on them include Swagger, Apiary, Stoplight, Restlet, and many others.

    However, these services were inconvenient for me due to the complexity of quick specification editing and aligning it with code changes. Additionally, the list of features was dependant on a specific service. For example, creating full-fledged unit tests based on the tools of a cloud service is next to impossible. Code generation and mocking endpoints, while seeming to be practical, turn out to be mostly useless in practice. This is mostly because endpoint behavior usually depends on various things such as user permissions and input parameters, which may be obvious to an API architect but are not easy to automatically generate from an OpenAPI spec.

    Tinyspec

    In this article, I will use examples based on my own REST API definition format, tinyspec . Definitions consist of small files with an intuitive syntax. They describe endpoints and data models that are used in a project. Files are stored next to code, providing a quick reference and the ability to be edited during code writing. Tinyspec is automatically compiled into a full-fledged OpenAPI format that can be immediately used in your project.

    I will also use Node.js (Koa, Express) and Ruby on Rails examples, but the practices I will demonstrate are applicable to most technologies, including python, php, and Java.

    Where API Specification Rocks

    Now that we have some background, we can explore how to get the most out of a properly specified API.

    1. Endpoint Unit Tests

    Behavior-driven development (BDD) is ideal for developing REST APIs. It is best to write unit tests not for separate classes, models, or controllers, but for particular endpoints. In each test you emulate a real HTTP request and verify the server’s response. For Node.js there are the supertest and chai-http packages for emulating requests, and for Ruby on Rails there is airborne .

    Let’s say we have a User schema and a GET /users endpoint that returns all users. Here is some tinyspec syntax that describes this:

    # user.models.tinyspec User {name, isAdmin: b, age?: i} # users.endpoints.tinyspec GET /users => {users: User[]}

    And here is how we would write the corresponding test:

    Node.js describe('/users', () => { it('List all users', async () => { const { status, body: { users } } = request.get('/users'); expect(status).to.equal(200); expect(users[0].name).to.be('string'); expect(users[0].isAdmin).to.be('boolean'); expect(users[0].age).to.be.oneOf(['boolean', null]); }); }); Ruby on Rails describe 'GET /users' do it 'List all users' do get '/users' expect_status(200) expect_json_types('users.*', { name: :string, isAdmin: :boolean, age: :integer_or_null, }) end end

    When we already have the specification that describes server responses, we can simplify the test and just check if the response follows the specification. We can use tinyspec models, each of which can be transformed into an OpenAPI specification that follows the JSON Schema format.

    Any literal object in JS (or Hash in Ruby, dict in Python, associative array in PHP, and even Map in Java) can be validated for JSON Schema compliance. There are even appropriate plugins for testing frameworks, for example jest-ajv (npm), chai-ajv-json-schema (npm), and json_matchers for RSpec (rubygem).

    Before using schemas, let’s import them into the project. First, generate the openapi.json file based on the tinyspec specification (you can do this automatically before each test run):

    tinyspec -j -o openapi.json Node.js Now you can use the generated JSON in the project and get the definitions key from it. This key contains all JSON schemas. Schemas may contain cross-references ( $ref ), so if you have any embedded schemas (for example, Blog {posts: Post[]} ), you need to unwrap them for use in validation. For this, we will use json-schema-deref-sync (npm). import deref from 'json-schema-deref-sync'; const spec = require('./openapi.json'); const schemas = deref(spec).definitions; describe('/users', () => { it('List all users', async () => { const { status, body: { users } } = request.get('/users'); expect(status).to.eq
