Played through all of the co-op missions in Far Cry 3 with @AnswerSeven and that was a lot of fun. It was an honor being a part of his completing 1000/1000 in that game! Well done!!
Looks like we might have a real project at work to use the Kinect with: our users group meeting we host every year, with over 5000 in attendance. I came up with an idea that I think might be pretty interesting, all really for the purposes of allowing me an opportunity to work with the Kinect. Plus I think, if pulled off right, could be a pretty big hit at the show! I ordered Beginning Kinect Programming with the Microsoft Kinect SDK from Amazon which should hopefully get me started.
Losing my mind a bit trying to figure out Ember.js, and constantly getting pulled in different directions (with regard to MV* in JS). Every article mentions another framework, and every article’s comments section gets into a debate on why another framework is better/worse! TodoMVC.com came in handy, but really doesn’t actually clear anything up! Before today, I was all about Backbone.js. Today I discovered Ember.js and was really all about it. Tonight, I’m thinking I might be back to Backbone.js and try for that first (just seems to have better support/documentation/community/learning curve). For now, at least. Maybe I can take another look at Ember.js again in the (near) future.
Interesting anecdote. Randomly searched Monster.com today for the following terms / job matches:
- backbone.js = 145
- ember.js = 27
- angular.js = 13
- knockout.js = 32
- mvvm = 52
- node.js = 141
- asp.net = 1000+ (mvc3 = 355)
- python = 1000+
- mssql = 1000+
- mongodb = 261
- nosql = 763
Not that there’s anything scientific about these search results (at all) – just interesting to note 😉
