ThoughtWorks5,178Join us Wednesday, June 4th for our final hangout  w/@martinfowler, @kentbeck&@dhh. This final hangout will be a double episode (1hr) featuring a Q&A session as well as final thoughts. https://plus.google.com/u/1/b/102046517467703229044/events/cco30ri6dpkej4h4d8mejmat98o"TDD as One True Way" versus "TDD as devil-spawned tempter" is not a productive contrast. Most of us have similar goals for development: confidence, impact, challenge, belonging. Test-driven development is one path toward these goals, but there are many other paths. This conversation in six parts explores tradeoffs in development, places TDD in those tradeoffs, and gives you perspective with which you can decide for yourself how you want to program.Speakers:Martin FowlerKent BeckDavid Heinemeier Hansson (DHH)Is TDD dead?2014-05-09 17:00:003

Markos Giannopoulos13,655Engagers VI: Christmas edition // It's a festive season so my monthly "round-up & thank you" circle is on the right mood!First some stats on people who engaged me (gathered via +Circloscope) and on my posts (tracked by +CircleCount):September: 620 plussers, 93 commentators and 86 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 745 +1s, 74 re-shares and 117 comments October: 395 plussers, 33 commentators and 39 sharers on 43 posts for a total of 1057 +1s, 80 re-shares and 165 comments November: 616 plussers, 114 commentators and 176 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 1109 +1s, 234 re-shares and 227 commentsA great month fuelled by two posts: 6+1 WordPress initial-setup plugins  (http://bit.ly/1bKXVgX 359 +1s, 59 comments, 183 re-shares) and Ode à Eiffel (http://bit.ly/1heptNZ 46 +1s, 4 comments, 5 re-shares). If I wanted to get "analytical" about it, it was two posts with some decent value (helpful list of plugins in one case on a every-day issue for a WordPress developer and an album of 18 original photos of night Paris on the other) :) So on to the circle: the formula for this month is - Plussers who are on over 3 engagers circles (so basically who have engaged with me in previous months as well this one)  - Sharers and commentators - A few kind highly-engaging people who have shared original circles including me. - People with over 300 in G+'s "relevance score" (as reported by +Circloscope), e.g. the people Google considers that I interact more and post similar content to mine (or of my interest)All in all, this came to a healthy group of 340 content creators and real engagers interested in technology and photography. Feel free to add them! As usual, stats and circle creation for this post were only made possible thanks to +CircleCount and +Circloscope. #engagers   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circleversary #milestone #googleplus #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles 2013-12-16 17:49:57340441178

Marlo Angelo Tito34,974An.Amazing.Mix.Of.PeopleSo, i see really interesting circle advises/tips from people like +Christine DeGraff  +Kai Saffron  +Richard Green  +Clare Patrick  and other people via their comments or posts on other people's circle and posts. And those tips/advises are really amazing, BTW. And yah, there will be a moderate change in this circle in two weeks. What would be the change? Would be the circle bigger or smaller? Hmm, i don't know ;-DWell it's not too late to suggest though :-) So suggest them ahead!So, good fine people, (ctrl c+v)   This is a group of amazing people which are amazing engagers, and are also pretty interesting (look at their posts if you don't believe me :D). They're suggested by others, and also by me so i'm pretty sure they're worth circling!Songs for the Week!I can not speak french but i do think that language does not matter on how much we like music: Cap Diamant - Cœur de PirateNext one, this song reminds me of much memory: Lily Allen - The Fear (Explicit)Well have an amazing Wednesday! #circle   #circlesharing   #shared   #add   #addmetoyourcircles   #addcircle   #sharedcircles   #addpeople   #justanaverageteenagerwhoexpresseshisopinionsovertheinternetcircle  2013-08-14 15:58:252528051104
Kai Saffron15,310THE SAFFRONSTEIN'S MONSTER CIRCLEIt's....ALIVE!!!http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lt37qhzLMh1qbhnrvo1_500.pngI started noticing a lot of the same faces in some of the publicly shared circles this week, some people being in only one or two, and some people being in as many as four.  I then had an idea for a diabolical experiment of a new shared circle.I took four popular circles and threw them together to be a G+normous circle of over 1,500 of the most interesting and engaging users according to four different circle sharers.  For added spice and seasoning, I also threw in my smaller and cuddlier   #SaffronStarterCircle , which is my personal Top 109 Most Relevant users according to G+.  I then scrolled through this beast and removed almost all of the business pages (do they really think people are interested in the posted content- if ANY- of a page devoted to a car rental business?  REALLY?), as well as most self-proclaimed social media gurus, snake oil hucksters, follower-phishers, plus-and-reshare whores, scammers, spammers, and any other examples of general annoying uselessness.  I can't vouch for everyone who survived the cut, but there was that minimum level  of quality control at least. Since G+ lists people in circles by order of relevancy, I then took my affront to God and Nature and proceeded to amputate people from the bottom of the list (least relevant) moving upwards until I had reduced this monstrous circle to 499 people.  As a cherry on top of this abominable sundae, this means if you add this circle, I have left just enough room for you to click "add yourself to this circle" when you re-share it from your own circles (not from this post).You're welcome.Happy exploring your new Saffronstein's Monster Circle stream! #SharedCircles   #GhostTown   #PublicSharedCircles   #ItsALIVE     2013-08-12 00:38:11499531749

Nicu Zecheru1,030+Daniel Mihai Popescu  originally shared:The Tagged Wonders, a circle made with your preferences added to my previous share, so this is "the sequel" I was talking about.Friends and future friends, please share it. It's even more important than commenting, but commenting opens a new perspective on you :). Plus it? I don't know. Some people say that a circle made by me is a little more powerful than others. When I ever mention "a stabilized version" when sharing, the meaning is that I'm not going to modify that circle after that :). This one is not yet "stabilized", but it will be in three days. I'm not sure I'll do something like this in the future. I have my own methods of choosing my circle members. I'm not creating circles to impress G+ personalities or celebs. I respect all of you! You are my celebrities. No tagging this time, please don't bother, ok?You receive the note? You're in.You didn't receive it? Add the circle to your other ones, put yourself inside, share it! Doesn't meaning you are not inside, does it now?I have noticed that a shared circle does a lot of good for its members. I can't promise you that if you'll add this circle you will be added back by its members, it's a lie or misleading to put together Guy Kawasaki, Brogan, and other 20-30 top 100 G+ members and say something like this. It's just an example, don't take it literally. I'm not saying even that I shall add you back as a bonus for adding a circle I have shared. I hope you are not annoyed in any way.It is rude to  ask anyone to do anything for me, just because my highness blessed you by adding you to a circle :).I have had some interesting conversations with people who unfortunately understood nothing.

Daniel Mihai Popescu8,565The Tagged Wonders, a circle made with your preferences added to my previous share, so this is "the sequel" I was talking about.Friends and future friends, please share it. It's even more important than commenting, but commenting opens a new perspective on you :). Plus it? I don't know. Some people say that a circle made by me is a little more powerful than others. When I ever mention "a stabilized version" when sharing, the meaning is that I'm not going to modify that circle after that :). This one is not yet "stabilized", but it will be in three days. I'm not sure I'll do something like this in the future. I have my own methods of choosing my circle members. I'm not creating circles to impress G+ personalities or celebs. I respect all of you! You are my celebrities. No tagging this time, please don't bother, ok?You receive the note? You're in.You didn't receive it? Add the circle to your other ones, put yourself inside, share it! Doesn't meaning you are not inside, does it now?I have noticed that a shared circle does a lot of good for its members. I can't promise you that if you'll add this circle you will be added back by its members, it's a lie or misleading to put together Guy Kawasaki, Brogan, and other 20-30 top 100 G+ members and say something like this. It's just an example, don't take it literally. I'm not saying even that I shall add you back as a bonus for adding a circle I have shared. I hope you are not annoyed in any way.It is rude to  ask anyone to do anything for me, just because my highness blessed you by adding you to a circle :).I have had some interesting conversations with people who unfortunately understood nothing. I'm joking a lot.  #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle  =============*Footer note: Four or five people proposed by you, didn't do this sequel as well. I don't like "players". I'm not a "number".

Daniel Mihai Popescu8,097Powerful Wonders - my last creation :)You, my Invincible, maybe remember my invitation a few days ago, to tag some of your friends in that post ? From you, only +Christine DeGraff, +Giovanni Totaro and +Cesare Riccardo answered properly. Of course, pleasant surprises from nominees who started to tag themselves between them, as they were the ones to make the circle, not me. Some of them were quite independent. As I said, it was a huge party where some of the guests didn't know their host :). Even better, all the nominees (except five) made this circle, which will attend it's final version next week.I have added to this one, the very powerful circle who was based on +Bearman Cartoons and +Richard Green's previous shared circles, only because it was too small. It contains also the spine, the Invincible and it is indeed a very high class circle. So, more than a third is based on your nominations, and mines, of course: +Christine DeGraff, +Giovanni Totaro, +Cesare Riccardo, +Hallie Guilfoyle, +Karla Clark, +Jayarr Denson and +Kimberly Hurlbut :).If you receive the notification, you're in. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle  2013-07-21 12:17:143951705288

CSS Tricks
I love this bit of code from  +Rian Ariona 

If you are not ready for the final version, simply create a blurred version of the background, and set the background property both of them (main body background and box that want to be blurred) to be cover sized and fixed.

As I looked at his Codepen (http://codepen.io/ariona/pen/geFIK) I found some more really interesting markup. Great work

Integrating podcasts into a music app

+LonelyBob K asked me about this ... I think it will be interesting to see how Deezer integrate podcasts, assuming that's the plan. Certainly doable but they have several interesting challenges ahead:

- Making it suitable for speech, as a mistake other music apps have sometimes made is missing some of the subtle design differences required (e.g. speed control).

- Podcasts are continuously updated/incremented, not like an album or a playlist that never changes. The notion of subscription takes on a different meaning.

- Podcasts are openly published and may be played and downloaded by all users, whereas most music apps have rights issues around those activities, so if they integrate them into Deezer will they allow talk shows to be freely played and kept offline but music still restricted, or try to make it allc... more »

- Stitcher already has a big user community, so they will have the usual migration challenges.___

Wow. #closedecosystems  and #notifications  :
When you use g+ in Chrome with OS X, you get at least three notifications for just one message (for free).
There is the in-site bell, there is a bell in Chrome and there is the OS X notification center and there are various Android or iOS devices (actually I get five alarms).
Wondering if #inbox  can solve it and if I can attach my doorbell via nest to get even a stronger firefighter feeling or if web 3.0 would mean a unified notification and commenting system.

Did You Mean? Typo correction Gem

Dynamic languages are just better. Okay maybe you disagree in which case you can explain the benefits of static code to me while you wait for your code to compile.

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

But I digress. Any tech has pros and cons and a con of dynamic languages is getting the method wrong. The REPL helps with this by letting you try out expressions dynamically, but it still happens when running code, So here's a nice Gem to catch these things in development and suggest alternatives.

BootstrapDialog: Modals on steroids

BS Dialog is an astonishingly useful enhancement of the raw BS modal, which requires a giant tangle of easy-to-screw-up markup. BS Dialog just lets you make a JS call BootstrapDialog.alert('I want banana!'); and done.

Even more awesome, it adds, a veritable shload of useful features, such as choice buttons, keyboard shortcuts, and multiple stacked dialogs which can be dismissed all at once.

Context: Upgrading player.fm to Bootstrap v3.hipster from v2.x which broke kind of everything. In the case of modals, it was easier to just switch to this than try to diff the DOMs and figure out how to translate all this markup.

I made a Gist showing how to vertically center it - https://gist.github.com/mahemoff/8ff6d3782d2da6f9cbb3 (based on the linked SO post).

Good explainer from +Joel Webber and I agree about ideally replying to comments or turning them off. (But really if you take the time to announce something like this, why not take the opportunity to clarify people's concerns, however misfounded.)

You've probably seen this posted 25 different times in the last couple of days. It's a good idea, and I'm glad Google's doing this.

http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.com/2014/10/strengthening-2-step-verification-with.html

I'm posting this mostly as a form of catharsis after reading the idiotic comments on this blog post. Rather than getting embroiled in an argument there, I'm just going to post my abstract responses here:

- Yes, it's an open standard that can, at least in theory, be used with other browsers and providers.
- No, it doesn't matter that USB storage devices are extremely insecure because of their programmable firmware. This is not one of those devices.
- No, it doesn't make it impossible to log in with your tablet or phone. It just makes it easier and more secure on machines with USB ports.
- Of course it doesn't "work everywhere", and that's ok. It's more secure where it works. It's no less secure where it doesn't.
- I know you have lots of USB drives already. No, you can't just use those; the question doesn't even make sense. If you can't afford $6-10 for better security, you either can't afford a computer or your priorities are badly inverted.

In other news, I propose a first rule of internet comments: If you're not going to actively respond to, and occasionally moderate comments, don't enable them. It just looks awful to have a bunch of misinformed horseshit on a public blog.___Good explainer from +Joel Webber and I agree about ideally replying to comments or turning them off.

Figuring out which apps to trust is tough. If you use ratings to help you out, you can now filter your search results by ratings on the Google Play Store.

Whenever you search for an app on your browser, a drop down menu will appear. By default it will say "All Ratings", but you can click it to filter your results to "4+ stars". Those are the only two options.

Styling CSS dropdowns

Okay this is one of the basic things you want to do in CSS that has always been ridiculously complicated. I thought Bootstrap might help but not really. So here's a few rough notes on it ...

* Either you use a completely custom control or you try to shoehorn <select> into something that can be styled. I chose the latter as I've found dropdown libraries hard to integrate in the past.

* The most important property is appearance: none but oddly Chrome actually needs this one with a vendor prefix so I used -webkit-appearance: none Anyway, this is the secret sauce that makes selects style-able.

* Firefox supports moz-appearance: none but has a gaping bug in which the dropdown arrows are still shown. There's a ton of possible hacks but I didn't pursue it. (I'm using http://cssuseragent.org/ to easily sniff for... more »

* You can't style the options - ie when the select is selected.

* I had problems setting before and after pseudo-elements (as I wanted to use font-awesome). I've seen it done but I didn't pursue it and just used background-image the usual way.

Spotify adds a family plan. Will others follow?

It's a good move that apps and OSs are thinking more about how families are using their apps. e.g. Netflix lets you set current user to improve personalisation. Android has the multi-user mode on tablets. iOS now allows sharing of content.

There's plenty of room for people to game these things too, but if people don't want to pay a few bucks for a service, they'll find some other way to get around it anyway. I expect in the future social networks might provide an API to verify that people are in the same family, but until then, a lot of it will be based on trust and service providers will find it hard to call shenanigans as it's too easy to make mistakes (ie pr(false negatives) is relatively high).

Breaking down Facebook's recent open-source data stores: TAO and F4

TAO - Distributed memory cache for social graph (I guess companies with 2 billion users don't stick their whole social graph in a few GB of RAM :)

F4 - Media storage. Interestingly they distinguish by "hot" (recently created and therefore in heavy use) and "warm" media. (A bit like AWS's glacial storage, which would naturally be "cold" on this spectrum.) F4 is the warm store. In contrast to the hot Haystack store, it doesn't need to be optimised for fast replacements, which mainly means deletes can be immediately tombstoned and then purged later on (afaict).

Oh and btw this blog has a ton of useful summaries of AWS tech too (links https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8480644)

Nice - check out that CodePen, this is a pure CSS effect.

CSS Tricks
I love this bit of code from  +Rian Ariona 

If you are not ready for the final version, simply create a blurred version of the background, and set the background property both of them (main body background and box that want to be blurred) to be cover sized and fixed.

As I looked at his Codepen (http://codepen.io/ariona/pen/geFIK) I found some more really interesting markup. Great work

Alien Blue is one of the best apps on iOS, period. Nice to see this happening. It's likely they'll also launch or acquire an Android app now and I just hope they keep the API open for innovation (which seems likely in Reddit's case).

Great to get reassurance there will be a material design library, though I would have been surprised if it were otherwise. The library's surely been through a ton of dogfooding now.

To all of  #AndroidDev  who are asking: yes, we will have a 'material support library' and you'll be unsurprised to hear that it's an (massively) updated appcompat-v7.

In fact, you've already been using it in the various app updates from the past few weeks (Play Store, Newsstand, etc).

I won't say anymore now, but rest assured that it's a comprehensive update.___Great to get reassurance there will be a material design library, though I would have been surprised if it were otherwise. The library's surely been through a ton of dogfooding now.

I'm mainly interested in gaming on Nexus Player for one reason: casual games start faster on mobile than TV. For whatever reason, console games like to screw around with graphics and splash screens and wait ages when after a new life, whereas mobile games tend to be designed for more immediate interactions.

Some update recently meant I could install games on Android TV and +Leo's Fortune  is good, more suited to gamepad than touch version in fact.

Nexus Player is not only interesting to me personally (I was always more of a PC gamer and I thought Wii would be the only console I'll ever need) but also generally – a polished, Android-based console a) is the most open console on the market for developers almost by definition, b) has already hundreds of millions of gamers running on the same ecosystem, playing on their phones, c) will come with hundreds of recognizable titles from day 1.

http://www.google.com/nexus/player/

In other words, this could be the sweet spot between Wii (casual, mass market) and Playstation (console-y, niche audiences). Or, of course, it could be a total flop. You never know. (But Nexus devices have a pretty good track record.)

And of course, as all Nexus devices, the Nexus Player is also meant to serve as an inspiration for the industry.

If you're a games developer building a console-y game (= gamepad controls) and you haven't already, think about porting it to Android (unless you're already using something like Unity which has Android export capabilities).

If you have an Android game that's not totally touch-dependant, read and implement this:

Android TV's YouTube recommendations seem to be based purely on most recent episode, so topics will crawl around for a bit, then get stuck in a loop on the same topic. It's odd.

Also there's presently no "Are you still watching" dialog and it made me realise that dialog is not just useful for saving bandwidth, but for personalised recommendations. Otherwise it could just stream for days and assumed you enjoyed each show equally.

+Chuq Von Rospach  is unhappy with communities feature on G+. I can't buy that communities have stagnated when only a couple of weeks ago it became possible to show them on one's profile.

I do think a lot more could be done with communities (threaded comments, image comments) but I expect they will continue to evolve. Then again, the author has a different use case related to photo sharing, so he's comparing more to Pinterest, Flickr, etc whereas I tend to compare this to Twitter, Trello, and general forums.
