Beginner’s Manual to Breaking Passwords

hacker
Every one of us has wanted at some point in our lives to be a hacker and break into other people’s computers. However, most of us give up this idea not so much because of moral reasons as because of modest intellectual abilities.

1. The question of morality

The question of morality can be easily banalized by asking yourself the question ‘Am I a coward?’ If your answer is positive, then you definitely shouldn’t be a hacker. Your conscience will trouble you whenever you do something wrong.

Magento Developers Meetup

Magento bannerMagento hosted a Developers meet up on Thursday, September 16th, 2010. The meet up was located at Magento’s HQ  in beautiful Culver City. This event was RSVP only and had 50 spots open. I signed up a bit late, but I managed to get one of the last few spots.

I cruised up with Edwin Lap, CEO / Cofa Media, and Gilberto Cortez, eVisability. We arrived at the headquarters around 6:58 PM, 2 minutes before the “Mix and Mingle” and grabbed our specialty name tags along with some cool Magento stickers. Magento’s workspace was incredible. I immediately fell in love with the bright colored walls and the whole “warehouse” vibe it gave off. Pizza and sodas were offered and more people started showing up.

World Soccer Anthems -iPhone application

iphone hymns app icon

So the Fifa World Cup is only 10 days away and I am an avid Football (you call it soccer) fan from Holland. Actually that is probably an understatement, I am a die hard fan.

I am also a respectful fan and have always been intrigued by the National Anthem for each team. When the Dutch national Anthem is played in a stadium of 80,000 people and the whole stadium sings along, it just gives me an adrenaline rush.

I know my own national anthem, but always was intrigued by what the other countries were actually singing, so I decided to contact the guys at Web Design Beach and collaborate on one of my passions, soccer and combine it with their awesome design skills to create a super simple iPhone application for the World Cup.

Creating Simple Visual Effects Using JQuery Instead of Adobe Flash

flash vs jquery

In 1996, Macromedia launched its famous vector-based animation software, Macromedia Flash – now Adobe Flash with the acquisition of Macromedia by Adobe in 2005. While JavaScript was introduced by Netscape in 1995, it wasn’t until Microsoft incorporated it into the 1997 version of Internet Explorer 4.0 that JavaScript started to get real recognition as a notable programming language for the web. However, JavaScript was incredibly slow back then and browsers simply did not have the processing power to cope with advanced use of the language.

Now, over a decade since its inception, JavaScript has grown by leaps and bounds to become intrinsic to web development. With the advent of AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript and XML) techniques and the proliferation of JavaScript libraries and frameworks such as jQuery, JavaScript is poised to dominate the web development world.
