Scaling the Walls: A Look Back at How the Community Broke Into a Closed System

While looking through some old code, I found my first iOS projects that I did while I was a graduate student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The earliest of which goes back to November of 2008, which was 4 months or so after the App Store opened its doors (according to Wikipedia). Since then I had developed 3 apps (two ended up in the App Store), the last of which I worked on in 2010.Whenever I spoke to…See More

Meteor.js Attack! at HI Capacity

March 18, 2014 from 7pm to 8pm
George Lee: We were supposed to have Kyle Oba talk this month about Clojurescript, but we're rescheduling that for next month. He'll be attending ClojureWest at the end of the month, so his talk will be that much more awesome. In the meantime, the Dev League students will be giving a talk on the Meteor.js…See More

The Shifting Technical Interview Process

Usually, this is a slow news period for technology. But there have been a few high profile tech news stories, from Edward Snowden turning into Carmen Sandiego to the Xbox One-Eighty DRM debacle. But one that perhaps flew under the radar was an…See More

George Lee commented on George Lee's blog post Javascript Testing with Mocha and Chai
"Thanks Mike! I also am pursuing higher Javascript proficiency. Before, my Javascript was basically "wrap everything in document.ready" and call it a day. It created this huge mental block because not only is all that code enclosed and…"

Javascript Testing with Mocha and Chai

It has been more than 6 months since I launched RedeemHi5.com, which I wrote about in one of my first blog posts. The launch hasn't been perfect; the most major issue is that the connection to the database gets lost and it doesn't reconnect, thus leaving people with a loading screen. The first thing to do, of course, is to fix it. In addition, though, I wanted to add tests to document these issues and maintain some peace of mind as I refactor…See More

Mike King commented on George Lee's blog post Javascript Testing with Mocha and Chai
"Nice post! In my current pursuit of increased javascript proficiency, testing seems to be a really great way to think about edge-cases and to solidify my code. I could definitely use some pointers from you on writing tests. I recently stumbled…"

George Lee commented on George Lee's blog post Think Functionally
"I do utilize operations over collections (like maps and list comprehensions) more often, but like Kyle mentioned I'm more inclined to isolate mutable state as much as possible. I have looked at Python code and thought, "Man, I wish I had…"

"Thanks for the OUDL shout-out.  I should say that if folks have an interest in more functional programming topics they should chime in on the meetup page.  There was also a Functional Javascript with Underscore book released recently by…"

Daniel Leuck commented on George Lee's blog post Think Functionally
"Great post George. Do you find that learning functional programming with languages like Erlang has affected the way you code in mainstream OO languages such as Python and Ruby? Are you now making heavier use of recursion, lambdas, etc.?"
