AngularJS, Filters and $index

Posted by & filed under , .

I came across an issue with AngularJS in one of the projects I worked on which I thought was worth signalling. It all stems back from the usage of $index inside a ng-repeat group — in the context of using a filter in ng-repeat, and as such it took us a bit to identify the […]

Breaking into open source

Posted by & filed under , , .

I read recently Shubheksha‘s blog post “A Beginner’s Very Bumpy Journey Through The World of Open Source” which describes her initial journeys into the open source world and reminded me a bit of some of my initial adventures into open source. (I even wrote a blog post ages ago — my goodness, literally ages ago […]

node.js Annoyance: url-download

Posted by & filed under , .

I been using node.js for a while now, and I do like it. I think I am still to make up my mind as to I consider this a solid production environment or it’s just a great tool for scripting and getting prototype off the ground — but even so, I definitely see its place in […]

Issue with Jersey Multipart Libraries: Missing start boundary

Posted by & filed under , .

This one had me pulling my hairs off and going crazy trying to figure it out so I thought it deserves a space on my blog 🙂 While it’s what it looks like a small fix, it turned out to be a b**ch in terms of googling for an answer as whatever combination of search […]

Automating Twitter OAuth Tasks with node.js

Posted by & filed under , .

At Netflix, we made a name for ourselves for being a Java shop. A quick look at our Netflix OSS page on Github reveals a whole suite of projects all Java-based. However, apart from the Java projects that are going on in Netflix – and the JVM-based projects (we DO Groovy and Scala too!) – […]

Jenkins CI Trick to Prevent Task from Triggering Itself on SCM Commit

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve come across this recently working on a project in Netflix and thought worth sharing. The project I was dealing with packages some JavaScript code which, before deployment, needed to be minified. We have set up our Jenkins task such that it polls Git for changes in the master branch and when the changes are […]

First release of this project on Github is now out there. And as promised in my “pilot” post of this series, this post will walk you through what went into this release and why. The project itself as you recall is available on Github in this repository: The version for this release is pixelserver-1.0.0 […]

ICanHaz.js Templating Issues

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve only just discovered ICanHaz.js I have to admit and as such I’m a bit of a moron when it comes to using it I guess. Still though, I felt the need to write up on this as I’ve been digging around the net for a while and the only resource helpful that I found […]

HowAboutWe Firefox Add-on

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Ok, so you might have seen the previous howaboutwe / Twitter project I spawned off the other day and blogged about here — and I thought since I’m not actively using howaboutwe anymore, but still found myself with a paid membership for a few more weeks, how about I (ahem! :D) play a bit more […]

Of Java and Assembler

Posted by & filed under , , .

The title would no doubt puzzle quite a few of you — after all I’m putting in the same sentence a low-level, processor-specific language (for no better term for “assembler” — I know, I know, I know, “it’s not really a language”, right?) with a rather high-level, even platform-independent language like Java. So, right away […]

(Small) Bug with Oracle’s HTML/JMX Interface

Posted by & filed under , , .

I posted before an article about how to use Oracle’s (well, Sun’s, since it was started really before the Oracle acquisition) HTML/JMX agent to monitor your apps via JMX here. For those of you who went ahead and decided to use that interface, you probably noticed a small (but rather annoying bug) in that component […]
