Google Code University

Google Code University

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, “How can I learn how to code?” Today fluorescentinca showed me Google Code University, a collection of tutorials on Googly languages (like Python, Java and Go) for relative beginners. Some good stuff there. (I also wrote a more general Lifehacker piece last year that can help you decide what language to start in.)

This Week in Google, Episode 47

This Week in Google, Episode 47

Great conversation today on TWiG with our guest Chris Messina, who dropped knowledge on the history and differences between OAuth and OpenID–which in an age of “Facebook wants to own all your sign-ons,” is an important discussion. My tip this week: to grab the Android Swype beta within the next couple of days while it’s still available, as previously-recommended ShapeWriter is no longer in the Market.

Do your own awesome vector posters with Inkscape & potrace

Do your own awesome vector posters with Inkscape & potrace

This article will cover a very powerful but little advertised feature of Inkscape. If you don’t know it, Inkscape is a free vector graphics editor, counterpart of Adobe Illustrator (like GIMP is Photoshop’s counterpart for raster graphics). This feature is Inkscape’s vectorization tool, made possible by the integration of potrace. “Vecto-what? What for?” OK: first, a quick Computer Graphics 101, as part of our No Geek Left Behind program: Raster graphics...

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

If you tried out the excellent (and unofficial) Swype beta for your Nexus One–the keyboard replacement that makes touch-typing much easier–you may be getting an annoying popup about how the Swype package you installed doesn’t match the screen size. I love Swype so much I’ve been putting up with the error for weeks, constantly dismissing it. Turns out a better version for N1 users kills the error. I uninstalled my error-prone version and installed this one yesterday;...

Android 2.1’s Best Features in Screenshots

Android 2.1’s Best Features in Screenshots

Great software needs hardware that can keep up, and my new Nexus One is a sleek, awesome handset. But the most important ingredient in this generation of touchscreen smartphones is the software: the screen is just a canvas that software paints on, and Android 2.1 is a work of art. Coming from the chunky G1, the thin and flat Nexus One hearkens back to my iPhone days. (It doesn’t require a holster, and slid into my jeans pocket it doesn’t make my thigh look too fat–it...

Note Taker Turns Your iPhone into an Endless Notepad

Note Taker Turns Your iPhone into an Endless Notepad

VisiCalc creator Dan Bricklin–you know, the guy who invented the spreadsheet–has delved into mobile development and released his first iPhone/iPod touch application, Note Taker. Rather than use keyboard, in Note Taker you jot notes using the tip of your finger on your touchscreen as if it were a pen on an index card. (See my bad handwriting in Note Taker in the screenshot here.) Note Taker looks and sounds more awkward than it actually is: the application employs some nifty...

Programmer 101: Teach Yourself How to Code

Programmer 101: Teach Yourself How to Code

You’ve always wanted to learn how to build software yourself—or just whip up an occasional script—but never knew where to start. Luckily, the web is full of free resources that can turn you into a programmer in no time. Since the invention of the internet, programmers have been using it to discuss software development techniques, publish tutorials, and share code samples for others to learn from and use online. If you’re curious about how to become a programmer,...

Cuil: le timeline in un motore di ricerca

Cuil: le timeline in un motore di ricerca

Vi ricordate di Cuil ? Il motore di ricerca lanciato nell'estate 2008, che si vanta tutt'ora di aggregare il triplo delle pagine di Google . Cuil , termine gaelico per indicare "conoscenza", si pronuncia come "cool" ed è stato sviluppato da ex dipendenti di Google. In piena corsa per competere con i grandi motori di ricerca, Cuil si arricchisce adesso di una nuova funzione di visualizzazione dei risultati di ricerca: la timeline . Continua a leggere Cuil:...

DocMazy: motore di ricerca per documenti, xls, pdf, txt

DocMazy: motore di ricerca per documenti, xls, pdf, txt

Segnalo in questo post DocMazy . E' un servizio molto simile a DocJax , un motore di ricerca per documenti di cui ho parlato in questo post . Le differenze sono poche, ma significativamente a favore di DocJax che: aggrega i migliori risultati di Google e Yahoo; ha un servizio di community, che consente agli utenti, tra l'altro, di condividere link; è possibile effettuare ricerche sui tag; i documenti sono anche classificati per: i più visti, i più scaricati,...
