I've been sitting on a post for almost 3 months now, because I got so angry that ex-speakers at events I've run were being asked to speak at other events, but none of their travel or accommodation was being covered. They were paying to speak at an event.

And frankly that's not cool. After letting it sit for the last few months, I decided it was still worth the light of day, so here it is:

A git workflow question.

I have two branches (forked from the same point off master): feature/one and feature/two.

Both have been merged into master, and subsequent changes have been made to master.

Now I want to make more changes to feature/two, but I want my new changes to include the latest version of master.

This is what I do, but I'm not sure it's right:

$ git checkout feature/two
$ git rebase master
$ git pull origin master

Now I have all the changes, but I just merged in from master, and when I merge those changes back into master (once I'm done), I'm worried I'll get an insane tree like this again: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bdx0H_DIAAA1dGA.png:large

Is this workflow wrong, should I just create a new branch or something magically and otherwise?

Been building this little #arduino  project for a while (I prototyped it over a couple of weekends, and these last two days - an hour stolen here and there - was able to finish it up): a simple toy with buttons, LED and dial that beep when pressed, and particular sequences play predefined melodies.

When I gave it to him for the first time, I couldn't get it back off him, so I'd consider that a success, though due to the rather shoddy build nature, I'm expecting that if it's dropped or shaken too hard (yes, he's already been shaking pretty hard!) it might dislodge something and it'll break quickly!

Still, pretty chuffed that I was able to build such a silly toy.

How fast is your local DNS server? Chrome has the answer! Head to: chrome://histograms/DNS.ResolveSuccess.

The leftmost column is milliseconds, and the rightmost column shows the quantile.. In the screenshot below (based on my local server), ~50% of time the DNS resolution completes in 50ms. However, 90% percentile  is at ~150ms! Yikes. DNS lookups are anything but free.

My small company, Left Logic is now actively hiring. Left Logic is based in the heart of Brighton, my favourite part actually: The North Laine.

My company is a front end development and JavaScript specialist. I add JavaScript separately, because Node applications feature a lot in the projects we’ve worked on.

If you’re interested in applying, please email jobs@leftlogic.com with a covering email as to why you’re the person for the job and links to your github profile (or equally some portfolio that shows off your coding chops).

V8/Node pros: how do I find an infinite loop without knowing where the loop is?

If I were using Chrome, I'd simply record the timeline, and capture the spike in code, see the line numbers and start to refactor (or some similar approach).

The problem I have is jsbin has a few 1000 line codebase with no obvious infinite loop problem.  I can't replicate it myself, but I know that some user is able to replicate the issue that triggers the process to go in to 99% cpu usage, and all things stop.

Obviously things like nodetime won't work, because the process is in a tight loop and won't respond to nodetime's requests.

I've also tried using `strace` on the box, but it actually looks idle, rather than looping - which really doesn't make sense to me, but it's quite possible that I'm not reading the strace output correctly.

28th September marks jsbin 5th birthday.

jsbin was launched back in 2008 and has been a dear project close to my heart. So in celebration, I’m running a fun (and hopefully, educational) competition (and announced some important and exciting news).

This post (linked) is from my blog, so there's already been a number of entries, and a few t-shirt winners already(!).

There's a ton of great visualisations using clever maths over on Imgur, but I wanted to see the source (and possibly canvas) that would create these images.

People have been creating (js)bins that show off how to create lots of these. A few of the impressive examples:

- http://jsbin.com/odoqit/4/edit?css,output (entirely in CSS)
- http://jsbin.com/oFoZaJe/1/edit?js,output (mesmorising!)

Earlier this year #javascript  hacker, Full Frontal conference organiser, and all-round-good-guy™ +Remy Sharp visited +University of Portsmouth to give a one-off non-technical talk about becoming part of the web community, and his approach to freelance work.

For discussion: should jsbin automatically delete anonymous bins (if so, in what condition).  This is an attempt to deal with phishing problems.

(sorry, longish post, but interesting problem, I think!)


For some reason, jsbin is popular amongst the phishers (is that a word?).  I've spoken to +Chris Coyier and +Piotr Zalewa (codepen & jsfiddle respectively) in the past about the issue, and asked how the deal with it.  IIRC Chris has a "report abuse" button at the footer of the pens, and jsfiddle hasn't had much need as yet.

jsbin did have a report abuse button (next to the "edit in jsbin") in the full views, but out of all the people that clicked and when prompted for their email address (so we could follow up), out of 50 or so reports in 6 months, 1 was real, the rest were people thinkingthey... more »

I'll admit, I've never been good at writing tests. Not "not good at writing the code", but actually writing any tests. But I'm trying to change that.

My question is: how do people structure their directories for dev and testing.

The following is what I have right now, but I want to add browser based testing, but that set of files doesn't belong to the `src` directory, not the `tests` directory, so I was thinking something else, but not sure what.

My thoughts on forced focus to a web site when competing with apps like Skype suddenly focusing when a call comes in

/me just thinking outloud

I was watching a video discussion WebRTC and vs. applications like Sykpe. 

One of the main pros mentioned of applications like Skype was that when a call came in, it would bring it's focus to the front.

Whereas a call or a ping from a web browser can easily be lost in a sea of open tabs. I had this exact problem yesterday—I accepted a hangout with someone, but she had so many tabs open, she couldn't find which one was making the noise (even though she could hear me—we re-started the call).

I began to wonder whether there should be a way to request focus to a tab or window. This would be a privileged action that would require the user to allow this site to do so.

Then, I was thinkingthis... more »

First Look: Workspaces - Simplifying Your Find & Fix Workflow With The Chrome DevTools

The typical web app development workflow involves using some clever window arrangement to display your editor and the DevTools side-by-side, or having to switch back and forth between them. This can sometimes feel cumbersome and time-consuming. Wouldn't it be useful if you could instead just edit the source for your web apps directly in the DevTools?

Just find an error, fix it and save to the file from just one place.

This workflow becomes easier today with Workspaces, an in-progress experimental feature that’s landed in Chrome Canary. Workspaces allow you to select custom directories in your file system which are always available for you to edit within the Sources panel. This can be the directory for an app you're working on or even a whole list of differentp... more »

First Look: Explaining Memory Consumption With DevTools Native Memory Profiler

In DevTools, the JavaScript heap profiler is used to uncover memory leaks, however this is actually limited to memory allocated in the V8 heap (i.e the heap for Chrome’s JS engine). What this means if if you have a DOM tree consuming a lot of memory, the JavaScript heap could still remain small and the heap profiler wouldn’t be of much help.

This is one of the reasons we recently introduced the new (experimental) Native memory profiler (see Settings->Experiments to enable under the Profile tab), covered in the Breakpoint Ep 5. It’s there to help better understand how the render process consumes memory which isn’t in the V8 heap. 

Feel a little lost? Don’t worry. We basically want to let you know just how much memory is used by the major components in your app: CSS, DOM, therender tre... more »

I have finally gotten around to watching +James Pearce's presentation from  +Remy Sharp's Full Frontal conference this past November.  Take 40 minutes and watch this, especially if you are a die hard semantic markup person.

I have struggled with the issues of semantic markup versus a full on web programmatic application since I got involved in mobile full time a few years ago.

I think this is a great conversation to have and it isn't happening so when I see a presentation like this that so masterfully teases out the relevant points I really want to see people have a conversation about it and tease out the important issues pro and con.

A little backstory

For the first 3 years I always resisted videoing the event, mostly because we didn't have the budget, but also I didn't want it to infringe on the event itself (camera people, lighting, etc).

I also turned down offers from people to do it for free.  Again, I wasn't keen because either it wouldn't be up to the quality I expected (and if it's free, you can't really ask them to do it again when you've got folk waiting for video) equally you can't put any deadlines in place for volunteer work (you might think you can, but I've seen it time and time again where free work ends up in friends just getting pissed off with each other).

Sharing this: Editing in FCP screencast

This was my edit process in Final Cut Pro whilst editing the last 1/4 of the Full Frontal 2012 videos.

The first task is to sync up the reference camera with the main subject camera. Then I use the reference camera to set markers on the main camera timeline when slides change.

Next I drop in each slide (and export of PDF to JPG images since these allow you to easily change their duration in FCP), and align them to the markers.

I found when I came to edit Rebecca's talk, there was a sync issue with the audio and video - but released that for some reason the video thought it was 23fps and audio was 25fps so it didn't sync up.  I fixed this by creating a new project, and specifying the settings.

You might catch it, but once all the syncing is done, the actual work of putting the slides on the timeline and... more »

I'm doing some hacking on a NodeCopter, and very close, but need some help.

I'm using udev http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Udev to trigger a script when the usb is inserted in the drone.  I've got a rule that triggers a script - which does work.

The problem is I'm trying to execute a script on the usb stick - but I believe the mounting of the stick isn't complete when the udev usb mount event fires - so it doesn't work.

The rule is:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", RUN+="/data/video/usb/mount.sh"

Note /data/video/usb/mount.sh contains:

echo `date` > /data/video/d.txt

I can confirm the script is good when I manually run a trigger using:

udevadm trigger --action=add --subsystem-match=usb

However, it isn't able to write the file oni... more »

Anyone want to remind me why we do `document.head.appendChild` with bookmarklets?

I'm pretty sure it's because you can't rely on the body element existing - either due to it not be parsed yet, but also because frameset pages don't have a body element.

Anyone want to confirm or correct me (those people I included explicitly, I suspect know the answer)?

This is arguably one of the most important call to actions for the modern web ecosphere. I, for one, 100% back +Remy Sharp opinion of Apple and would even go so far as to add support to the "have reached out numerous times and received zero reply" category. We have made the TC-39 ECMAScript committee more visible, we should make each browser vendor equally as visible - and more importantly - accountable.

I have ideas for this, possibly for JSConf US - would love for Apple to be present, but also not afraid to call them out for their "developers be damned" attitude.

What's the nastiest/best/craziest thing you've ever seen done with an iframe?

I'm giving a talk at jsconf next week and I've got quite a few crazy bits in there, but I'd love to find out more madness that you guys and gals know about.

Here's one example (which I won't share right now how - but will do in my slides next week - which of course I'll share): 

You can use an iframe to create a 3rd party API if the 3rd party don't have an API. I've used this to create APIs to Lanyrd and Github in the past.

I was digging around some old JS Bin emails, and found this from +Yohei Shimomae who did the amazing artwork for Dave, the JS Bin bot. 

It's the life cycle Dave took before ending up the way he did.

The JS sticker comes from me attending JSConf.us in April, and it's stuck to my son's changing mat. I thought it might be nice that the JS Bin mascot show off his support for the JS Community.

What I want next is: a) a lego version of Dave, b) a real metal work version of Dave!
