    My Android App Wifi STB Remote+, which works as a remote for TataSky+ HD Settop boxes, now has a laptop/desktop counterpart. This application is built over Java and packaged as a Jar file.

  • Important Javascript Fundamentals for OOP Developers

    In this guide I have tried to put together all important nuts and bolts of Javascript. I had a really hard time learning JS, since all these parts were scattered over the net. I gradually found them over the years. I hope I have covered all of them. Please let me know in the comments […]

  • Lessons learned from PhoneGap (Cordova) and jQueryMobile on Android

    I recently created my first Android app – JustTodo. This is a simple app but took considerable time to finish due many unexpected problems. Google wasn’t too helpful either. Here is a list of issues I faced and their solutions I discovered. General tips Zooming and Scaling I presume that you have already encountered suggestions […]

  • The Emperor’s Old Clothes

    This is a republication from ACM’s archive of Prof. C. A. R. Hoare‘s lecture at 1980 ACM Turning Award. Prof. Hoare is popularly known for inventing QuickSort.

CInkv2 release postponed

Last weekend I was about to release CInk v2, but at the last moment I found a big bug in the way paths are implemented. Now the situation is quite tricky to solve. On top of that, now-a-days I find myself with very little free time. Anyway I will continue to work on it. My […]

Yesterday I completed its documentation and its new site. All will be released together. Thanks to Code Mirror library, the code editor on the new […]

New place, new face

As I reported before, I have moved to “cloud” based hosting from eApps. Moving to “cloud” was no easy task, and more than once it knocked the lights out of me. After many tussle and numerous tickets, rackets, hair uprooting exercises and under the hood tweaking, I guess now I can rest easy. To celebrate […]

Bhaag DK bhaag

When I heard this song for the first time, I didn’t like it at all, because my roomie sang it to me.  His “singing” was rather a recitation and that too it in a coarse way. When I heard the real song, it was, well really catchy. The video song UTV have relased is non-the-less […]
