Dealing with logfiles all day for so long, it’s great to see a new way of visualizing web requests!

Stackoverflow – good code Q&A resource

Posted on 20 October 2008 by Demian Turner

It seems http://stackoverflow.com/ is finally out of private beta, check it out.  It’s the programmer’s Q&A resource that’s had the massive pre-hyping from Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood over at IT conversations.

First impression: it seems really great, better than the hyping in fact.  Also quite active – while I was trying to answer a question 4 more response came in, inline.  Some great community karma-enabling ideas.  Only problem is it’s really heavily .NET weighted at the moment, so head on over and give it some of your PHP/linux/open source expertise 🙂

UPDATE: There are some real classics like this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/164432/what-real-life-bad-habits-has-programming-given-you

Handy Design Patterns Cheatsheet

Posted on 10 October 2008 by Demian Turner

Wei Ling Chen from DZone contacted me the other day to announce a range of cheatsheets (or refcardz) they have made available for free download.  They offer a whole range from Java, to PHP to .NET to Flex and more.

I found the cheatsheet for design patterns quite interesting, you need to register with the site in order to get the download link.

It feels like a friday when I receive emails like this from our friends in the recruitment profession:

MUST HAVES
PHP5 (php 4 isn’t relevant)
MVC experience (and/or Design Patterns in general)
SVN (we use Eclipse with Subclipse – experience with these things are preferred)
 
NICE TO HAVES

Experience with either JSON or SimpleXML (preferably both)
