What's a .net Developer?

I've recently seen a lot of job postings looking for .net developers. My career was as a software developer, but I had never heard of anyone calling themselves a .net developer. So I did some searching around and came upon the same question discussed in some forums. Here's one comment (not by me) that I think should be read by every HR department and anyone else posting for .net developers:Though I consider myself a .NET developer, I don't prefer calling it that way. c# developer sounds much…See More

Hawaii Geek Meet at Kapiolani Park

July 12, 2015 from 9am to 3pm
The 8th Annual Hawaii Geek Meet is coming Sunday, July 12, at Kapiolani Park!It's a fun, casual, family-friendly, potluck picnic for groups and individuals who have a passion they're eager to share.This has always been a grass-roots (literally) community event. There's no need to "staff a booth" or have fliers or presentations at the ready (although if you have such things, they're more than welcome!). We encourage participants to think of it as a potluck picnic for each individual group --…See More

"Scotty, When I arrived in Hawaii nine years ago I was still looking for work, or at least open to getting a job. But as I had found back in the New England area there are darn few job openings for people in my age range. Basically, I had aged out of…"

This is inspiring. For the nerds.

This is inspiring: I'm thinking, Why make it a stationary display attached to a house? Why not make something like this portable, made up of a set of individual components, all linked by WiFi or some such technology? I envision a beautiful display like this made by a group of nerds (we know who we are) and set up at, say,…See More

An IDE for Quantum Computing

Totally amazing. Google's "Quantum Computing Playground" lets you fiddle with quantum algorithmsGoogle has just launched a new web-based integrated development environment (IDE) that allows users to write, run and debug software that makes use of quantum algorithms. The tool could allow computer scientists to stay ahead of the game and get acquainted with the many quirks of quantum algorithms even before the first practical quantum computer is built.Full story here:…See More

"Too bad it's web based. That gives Google access to the algorithms and source code of any one who is using it.  (and they don't have a very good track record on respecting others IP...)"

"Or you could just do what lockitron did (since kickstarter doesn't allow "home improvement" projects) and roll your own crowd funding mechanism. Or use indigogo, etc."

Kickstarter: More Rules, Anti-Science

KICKSTARTER: More rules, anti-scienceI read an article recently about the Kickstarter web site in which a controversy arose over a project that involved genetic engineering. The founders of Kickstarter are very arts-oriented, and in fact the initial objective of the site was to provide artists the opportunity to fund their art projects. It was only later that more techie projects also took hold on the site. So, the artsy-folks took exception to a genetic engineering project and complained that…See More

About Me:
If anyone in here is old enough to remember Interface Age magazine (late 70s) you may recall a monthly column titled "The Inventor's Sketchpad". Well, I wrote that column. I also wrote a book, "The Complete Starship: A Simulation Project" way back then, describing how a simulation could be constructed using personal computers.

Ah yes, I remember now. I simulated a tic tac toe machine that worked by beads dropping into buckets. No hurry on the scan, I have a copy in storage...in Seattle. But it would be fun to see it again.

Thanks!

Roger, I just noticed your profile. I had an article published in Interface Age. It was for a game on Altair/Imsai type machines with a video card (Lee Felsenstein's in my case). The game was Snake and you used the front panel switches to direct the snake. They published the hex code for it and I know at least one person entered in all that hex because he wrote a letter pointing out a bug. I knew about the bug but had left it in as a kind of cheat, it let the snake out of one corner. Oh heck, it might even have been Octal they listed. So, yes, I remember Interface age!

E komo mai Roger! We hope you find some fellow inventors and robotics guys in our community.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as User Experience Design and Robotics.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. See you in the groups and forums!
