  • Tim Berners-Lee: Developers Are Doing “Incredible Things”

    This week at the World Economic Forum, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, most widely known for his invention of the World Wide Web, gave a talk ranging from topics such as social networking all the way to HTML5. Berners-Lee made a few points that are especially relevant to developers, including the need to code and why we need to enable more logical thinking education in schools in order to raise up the next generation of developers.

    Four Ways Dropbox Can Help Developers Be More Productive

    Dropbox is a freemium service that offers four basic tools: file synchronization, file versioning, file sharing, and remote backup of files.  It’s an extremely powerful tool for developers especially; as it enables coders to quickly sync their coding projects across networks, multiple operating systems, and a whole host of devices. In this article, we’re going to take a look at how Dropbox can simplify common coding tasks and help developers become even more productive.

    Sample Application: Using SIMD Instructions in Windows* 8 Store Apps

    Abstract

    SIMD instruction sets can be used to boost performance in Windows* 8 Store applications. This document focuses on how to create a SIMD library that can be consumed by any Windows 8 Store application programmed in any supported language. This paper shows how to begin making a SIMD library programmed in C++/CX, and three similar applications that use libraries written in C++/CX and XAML, C# and XAML, as well as JavaScript* and HTML5. The SIMD library will aid in speeding up the applications.
