Tcp relationships

Sometimes I think that human relationships are just like tcp connections. Sometimes they suddenly close and someone has to reconnect. Sometimes no matter the retries, the connection is just refused.

My brother on Golang:

I don’t need to learn Go.

Because I do JAVA.

*Shrug*

– When he caught me reading the Golang tutorial – the new hype language these days. What a true Java bear.

Dev confused about how to implement his API :

Religion is so far better than computing. If only we had some kind of prophet too, at least we would know what to do in advance. Seriously.

The typing symbol hack

Introducing the symbolTyper js library ♥

Do you remember as a kid playing with the Wingdings font of Microsoft Word on Windows 95 ? Personally it’s one of my favourite memories. I used to always activate the font and type on the keyboard to discover which symbols appeared on the screen. Every key was hiding a symbol. I never really understood why this font even existed mixed in with Times New Roman and Arial. It was like a pirate in the navy, discarding any character encoding rule, outputting whatever it wanted, like a crazy font. It seemed very odd that engineers would come up with that since it follows no logic and the use is really not obvious. Anyway, I found it very fun to play with and always ended up making some posters or invites with it. In the end I would do something that approached this :

For some reason, I particularly loved the bomb symbol, it is very unique, I’ve never seen it in any other font. So this is what the hack I want to share today made me think of, typing symbols in my childhood. High moment of almost creativity.

By value, by reference in javascript

The pass by reference mechanism in javascript

Lately I have realized some useful facts about the pass by reference mechanism in javascript.
Let me share them here.

To cut to the chase, there is no such thing as passing a variable as reference in javascript. Variables are always passed as values in arguments. This means that what you can do in PHP for example when you do function test(&$val){} is not possible in javascript, there is no special keyword or symbol to do that.

However, there are some cases when you can “simulate” this behaviour in javascript. But before showing you how to do that, let’s make a recap.
