    Then I forgot about it until a colleague of mine showed me this demo It was made with a Flash port of ARToolKit called FLARToolKit by Saqoosha How cool was that augmented reality in Flash And then the creative agencies got them and now it seems to be a fad http ge ecomagination com smartgrid augmented reality http www topps com and I think that BMW is preparing one for Mini I realized that once the ARToolKit algorithms got to run in Flash Player and thus reach 98 web audience and some creative agencies figured out they could do something with them the technology just got free advertising worldwide I am thinking that if you are working on the next graphical or visualization algorithms you might really want to consider them running on Flash Player Just for the sake of a cooooool demo that can be seen by everybody Not to mention that with Alchemy you can still have all or part of your algorithms written in C or C and compile them to run on Flash Player what is premature ejaculation Categories alchemy Flash Player 10 thinking Tags ODE Open Dynamic Engine for Flash February 23rd 2009 mpricope 7 comments I ve took Alchemy for a test and decided to compile ODE Open Dynamic Engine Just to add yet another physics engine to the Flash World It was a hell of a ride but I finally got to produce some bouncing balls For a still unknown reason some as 3d libraries have been very slow to render 6 translucent walls and 2 balls Papervision3D seems to move quite decent You can download the ode sources from here To recompile them do you need to have the Alchemy environment turned on configure make clean cd OPCODE make cd ode src

    all technologies from all ages from everywhere on this earth I spent half of my coding time there configuring connectors and writing adapters for the most exotic datasources and services implementations So with this experience in mind while watching Ben Forta going through various features of CF that thought came into my mind And I realized that what s cool about CF is not that it has some unique capabilities but that it integrates everything so nicely It had only one major drawback for me the CF language itself I mean when you have programmed for 10 years in C Java style languages an XML language like CF just gives you a little bit of an instant organic rejection But now here comes CF 9 They made CFSCRIPT a first class citizen so now you can take advantage of all the services and connectors under the hood with a JavaScript like language This made me give ColdFusion a first try a few weeks ago I chose a very simple scenario join two tables one in a MySQL database and one in an Excel file and push the result through a third one I must admit that I had no CF experience whatsoever but half a day and about 20 lines of code later I managed to finish my task In this time I ve gone through some old CF features like the built in database engine that helps you join heterogeneous datasources and some new ones like the Excel connectors or the new and nice Hibernate ORM stuff And after a couple of hours I exposed a web services from which you can download a PDF of the aggregated data So after my first day as a CF developer I felt pretty advanced And looking at the developer data I

    figure out what the actual layout is and where it is defined So I came up with this trick to get a sense on how this application is built In the capture phase the visual events in AS3 are dispatched from the root ancestor to the target This means that the Application container receive all events So I registered a listener on the Application container that analyzes these events finds the actual target and then displays the entire display stack that contains the target object This helped me identify what AS class represents which visual element and in what container this element is placed Here s is my little bit of code that does this public function initTrace app WindowedApplication void app addEventListener MouseEvent MIDDLE CLICK middleClickHandler true public function middleClickHandler event MouseEvent var tm Object event target var tab String traceObj tab tm var tmParent DisplayObject tm as DisplayObject while tmParent null tab traceObj tab tmParent tmParent tmParent parent public function traceObj tab String obj Object void trace tab getQualifiedClassName obj if obj is UIComponent var tmUI UIComponent obj as UIComponent trace tab tmUI getStyle fontFamily tmUI getStyle fontSize You just need to call the initTrace method on Application applicationComplete mx Application xmlns mx http www adobe com 2006 mxml layout absolute applicationComplete initTrace this Categories debugging flex Tags Debugging Flex and PHP with Flex Builder and Zend Studio June 6th 2008 mpricope 2 comments So I am a big fan of debugging I know that for most people this isn t exactly what they get out of the bed in the morning but nevertheless I know that this prevents them going to sleep in the evening My first thing when I look into a technology and it s tools ecosystem is how will I debug this I find more useful to spend some time configuring my environment for debug earlier in the project rather than later when things might get hotter These days I was looking into Flex and PHP and naturally I started by trying to configure my environment so I can debug this My goal was to be able to to debug both Flex code and PHP code to track the dataflow through a server request I ve tried different solutions and here is the simpler one Solution First installed Zend Studio for Eclipse http www zend com en products studio downloads Make sure you install also the Zend Studio Toolbar for your browser Next installed the Flex Builder Plugin from http www adobe com cfusion tdrc index cfm product flex eclipse and choose as Eclipse location the folder where you installed Zend Studio Usually c Program Files Zend Zend Studio for Eclipse 6 0 0 for my Windows machine You might get the following warning You just need to follow the 3 steps and it should be fine The next thing is to install the Zend Debugger server I found a good tutorial here so I will not get into much detail Now we will

    clearly profiting from that The community should build software for itself and hey this seems to me pretty much like the communist manifesto where each of us give according to their abilities and receive according to his needs And the communication style very accusing and unilateral it reminds me of the communist party political discourses And one thing is sure this style of communication among other things brought communism to the Eastern Block So it s power and influence it has been proven at large scale Unfortunately communism also proved to be an inefficient economic system and I lived to see both communism and also the havoc that it has produced when its economic and ideological system collapsed I think the only comparable crises of that magnitude was Western World Great Depression of which not that many witnesses are still alive today Now don t get me wrong I am a big fan of open source I strongly believe that open source brings an enormous value to the world by speeding the process of software becoming a commodity By winning the display price battle the open source software force companies to focus on innovation and quality to differentiate themselves That s why I am a big fan of commercial and proprietary software too Cause I believe that a world without one or another will be a world that will finally have less innovation at lower quality and at greater prices Hey but let me end with a joke about Romanian innovation during communism Do you know what makes a lot noise a lot of smoke and cuts the polenta in three well is the Romanian device to cut the polenta in four online jobs work from home Categories open source Tags RSS feed Random Posts Obama and Video on Internet

    Thailand I even thought that would be not so hard to just do some small contract work and just linger there for some time Then I thought about trying to get a PhD in social science Social is the new cool thing today Oh and speaking about social I experimented also with social gaming but it didn t took off Not because the idea was not good but the team I joined then was more oriented to dreaming that to execution Which made me think that the essential thing when you do a start up is execution More than a good idea Luckily I continued doing small consulting work cause I got bored in the afternoons mornings were occupied by gym workouts with my back as the main beneficiary And in one summer day a guy came to me wanting some custom Flex components It sounded like fun as 20 years ago I started programming trying to do graphic things on Z80 processors Working on these graphical components woke up the little geek in me The other geeky part for this was that these components were designed to be used for visualizing data from Building Automation Systems This gadget thing was another passion of my childhood I still remember how I was trying to build a microphone out of a graphite bar and two razor blades The next thing I know was that after two months of crazy hacking I jumped into a plane to Los Angeles to meet the guy and I think it was an instant chemistry I found that this chemistry thing is important when you work with somebody Another two months of hacking and here I am totally sold to the idea and I am about to open an office here in Romania I am very
