  • Data Reactivity - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    predicting Data Reactivity becomes just as big We ll define that a site is reactive when it automatically displays new data as it changes in the backend without having the user press refresh So long AJAX The word react is used because when data in the backend changes the frontend reacts in realtime http aws hardindd com assets reactive mp4 We have implemented Data Reactivity on a new Project of ours LifeLine Response The instant an Alert comes in it sends out a socket to update any browsers connected and is configured for realtime data so one admin will accept an Alert and the other Admin s will instantly see that and be unable to also accept the alert to avoid duplication The administrator is in charge of calling the user to make sure they are OK if not they will alert the authorities This feature prevents two administrators trying to contact one person at the same time assets accept webm This was done with a technology called Ratchet http socketo me which is implemented in PHP but Web Sockets are also making an appearance in javascript on node servers with technologies like Socket io http socket io and mydb

    control every aspect of how the camera works which should lead to some interesting applications when combined with PhotoKit More importantly though it will drastically improve augmented reality solutions since the developer will be able to select settings that are optimal for the type of object recognition being performed without having to do computationally expensive post processing HealthKit This has the potential to be revolutionary since it facilitates the sharing of health data with permissions controlled by the user between applications The initial implementations of this will probably focus on fitness applications but with companies like Epic potentially building EMR applications on HealthKit Apple is trying to position their OS as the leader for handling trusted health care data management on the mobile front It will remain to be seen how this works with HIPAA down the line but it is excellent as Apple s first entry into a space in which a lot of companies like Branch2 are currently trying to innovate HomeKit This will allow hardware developers to build devices that tie into HomeKit and allow software developers to give users the ability to control them It is designed with the idea of making iOS the command center for a smart home and will most certainly have tight integration with future releases of the Apple TV OS Early applications will likely be light and sound peripherals but being able to open and close garage doors manage locks monitor appliance status and control thermostats will be coming This is another capability that appears to be built in reaction to Google s recent work in this space which has been taking off after Google s acquisition of Nest Apple wants to make sure that iOS has native functionality that will allow it to be a competitive player in both the home automation and the internet of things spaces CloudKit CloudKit provides native access and free cloud storage for app developers encouraging developers to utilize it as a native cloud storage provider instead of Google Cloud or AWS s S3 In Apple s words with CloudKit you can focus on your client side app development and let iCloud eliminate the need to write server side application logic CloudKit provides authentication private and public databases and structured and asset storage services all for free with very high limits Handoff This allows a user to seamlessly move from one device to another and pick up where they left off within an app As Apple describes Handoff enables the user to switch from one device to another and continue an ongoing activity seamlessly without needing to reconfigure each device independently For example if a user is browsing a long article in Safari on a Mac he or she can move to a nearby iOS device that s signed in to iCloud using the same Apple ID and choose to have the same webpage automatically opened in Safari on iOS with the same scroll position as on the original device One cool aspect of Handoff

  • On the Heartbleed Bug - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    being that anyone can view the source code to verify that there is nothing going on behind the scenes However there are very few people who are willing to invest potentially hundreds of hours scrutinizing thousands of lines of code in search of the tiniest flaws which leads us to the Heartbleed Bug Vulnerability There is a widely used security system called OpenSSL which creates a secure connection between your internet browser and the server that contains all the information the site must store so that you can transfer your username password e mail etc safely Somewhere deep in the source code there existed a bug that allows individuals to acquire a random assortment of data from the server Internet celebrity Randall Munroe explains it succinctly here This random data could include pieces of information as mundane as status updates on what some user ate for lunch to pieces of information as important as encryption keys and passwords Even worse individuals can even acquire credentials on the server itself meaning they could ultimately control or have access to the entire server Observant readers will note that use of the word existed in the past tense and it is true that OpenSSL has released a patch to ostensibly fix this bug however your information may still be at risk Unfortunately there are still a few things you should be concerned about and they are listed below in order of significance Individuals exploiting this bug leave little to no trace of their actions It is nearly impossible to determine whether a server s security has been breached through this vulnerability so thousands of pieces of information may have already been gleaned from a server and we would be none the wiser The only course of action for websites is to fix the

  • Creating a Web-based Spreadsheet with SlickGrid - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    on GitHub The base functionality of SlickGrid is pretty bare bones which is great if you just need something lightweight and fast to display data in a grid format However beyond that are a number of plugins also written by the creator of the project that build on top of the most basic options including tooltips checkboxes and selection of multiple rows which make the experience even closer to working in a spreadsheet program that can also be added into your grid Some of the most important features we needed for our spreadsheet view were the ability to sort on columns reload the data displayed on the grid without actually reloading the web page and customize the order and size of columns The SlickGrid API provides the ability to do all of these things and more and they re almost all fully customizable For example SlickGrid has a built in sorting capability on data currently in the view of the graph but because we use a server side paging script to load only a subset of records for large datasets we chose to override this functionality Instead we use AJAX to load the paged records reset the data displayed on the grid dynamically and SlickGrid handles the rest all in a matter of seconds There s also no limit to the number of grids you can display at once we often have 3 to 10 tabbed grids available to click through on a single page Another cool feature of SlickGrid is formatters which can be defined on columns to do things like change the color of cells update values or add other custom formatting It s all handled client side in JavaScript as the grid is loaded so you can make formatting decisions based on the row cell column or

    typical office atmosphere To do this we offer a casual dress code flexible hours along with a game room where our hardworking employees can incorporate some fun into the day We moved offices back in 2012 and now have an amazing view of Lake Mendota Most of our programmers can work from home so it is important to create a place where everyone wants to come and work each day which leads to collaboration and thus a stronger team We believe being able to collaborate with other programmers who have unique perspectives breeds innovation and ultimately the best results We have a pretty small staff here at our Madison office 17 of us to be exact which grants the opportunity to be a tight knit group That said having an open office plan free of cubicles helps work relationships thrive and collaboration increase As a reflection of the easy going office culture one will often see employees walking around without shoes taking a quick break with a game of pool and listening to music while they work We think it is important for any company to realize that employees are one of most valuable assets and it is even more

  • Thoughts On Wearable Technology - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    stream a game using Google Glass In addition Samsung s new Galaxy Smart Watch doubles as an accessory and a camera with the ability for users to read their text messages with even greater ease The development of wearable technology is moving at a steady pace as shown by other new inventions such as Jawbone s bracelet that keeps track of data in relation to your health or Wearable Solar s clothing which can become a source for energy to charge one s smartphone With all the data that wearable technology will collect there will need to be a way for users to view this data Considering most of us have our smartphones within arms reach 24 7 it makes sense that our new clothes watches and glasses will increasingly be communicating with our phones Overall it seems that wearable technology will change the way we experience the world this technology will know things about us before we even know it ourselves However since the concept of wearable technology is relatively new a set standard for how this technology is developed is lacking Also how they will communicate to the user as well as with other wearable technology is another questionable area from a developer s perspective Problems that developers will face will include but are not limited to the communication between the multiple operating systems of these devices Issues with how developers will distribute apps or add new functions to the wearable technologies will also likely arise Alas until a larger population is more accepting of wearable technology and the term Glassholes becomes obsolete the concept of wearable technology may still be in its stage of infancy THIS BLOG claims no credit for any images posted on this site unless otherwise noted Images on this blog are copyright to
