A quick tutorial on using the Leap Motion Controller to trigger an LED through Intel® Edison.
Starting with Apache Cordova CLI 5.1, the security model that uses Domain whitelisting to restrict the access to other domains from the app has changed. By default, the Cordova apps are configured to allow access to any site, but it is recommended that before you move your app to production you should provide a whitelist of the domains that you want your app to have access to.
I'll be holding a mini-tutorial session at the USENIX LISA15 conference in Washington, D.C. this coming November. My class, entitled Fundamentals of Data Visualization: Building more Effective Charts and Business Intelligence Dashboards, is targetted at anyone who has to present numerical data in static form, whether it be part of a presentation to management and co-workers or in a business intelligence dashboard. The emphasis is on creating clear graphs and displays that can be parsed quickly and accurately, and which do not mislead the reader. It also covers some visual theory and the physiology of vision, which serve as the foundation for the recommendations and best practices when creating charts and dashboards. I've taught a version of this material internally here at Intel over the past three years.
This year’s Intel® Developer Forum was a sold-out event full of inspiring demos, innovative proof of concepts, and pioneering examples of cutting-edge technology. More Intel® Software Innovators were in attendance at IDF than at any previous event; including several first time attendees from India, Brazil, and Russia. The Innovator program as a whole made a huge impact at IDF, with nine Innovators demoing projects focused on Intel® RealSense technology, IoT, and Android*/Windows* live coding. Two Innovators were also featured in BK’s keynote on the first day; as well as in Intel® IQ as part of the top ten technologies featured at IDF.
Initially presented as a hands-on lab for Intel Developer Forum 2015 as "SFTL002: Hands-on Lab: Intel® Architecture Based Mobile Device Development Workshop – Featuring Android* TV" the lab instructions are provided here as reference in the hope that they are useful to a wider developer community. The boot image and appropriate data capture drivers were built prior to the lab by the presenter but notes are included on how to perform both tasks in the notes, although not in as great a detail. Regardless I hope that the following information will be useful to you, all tasks are possible with a commercially available Nexus Player device, a host PC running Ubuntu, a properly licensed version of Intel System Studio, and internet access to publicly available referenced sites.
Foundations of Digital Games is a summit of innovators and influencers in gaming-related academia as well as the games industry itself. In what was originally “the premier educational conference for faculty who use game development to teach computer science concepts and principles”, it began in 2006 as Microsoft Academic Days on Game Development in Computer Science Education (GDCSE) and was hosted on a cruise ship. In 2009, it changed hands and has since been run by the Society for the Advancement of the Study of Digital Games (SASDG), a nonprofit run by such academics. Despite losing the boat, the conference has continued to grow and been key in advancing the study of games in all aspects.
The server world has really embraced Python in a big way. For example, the OpenStack project is a very popular Infrastructure as a Service offering, and most of it is written in Python. This makes Python a leader for Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI), Software Defined Storage (SDS) and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
