How many times have we bought a MMORPG or MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing game) with all our hopes dashed following the realisation that game play is actually not finished? Surely, too many times. For years the world of MMO, reigned by WoW, has had many competitors. Although the increase in competition should have been positive for players, […] (translate)

iOS8 launched yesterday and it has damn good updates in mobile Safari. I strongly suggest folks read Max Firtman's detailed review here: iOS 8 and iPhone 6 for web developers and designers: next evolution for Safari and native webapps. One thing missing however is support for datalist controls. I've blogged about them before and I really like how simple they make basic autocomplete controls. I noticed over on the CanIuse page for datalist that Android 4.4.3 and higher now support it. Here are some screen shots of in action. Honestly it looks pretty much as you might expect, but I (translate)

Planet Shooter. Physics. (..) I don’t want to use 3rd party libraries and my game uses only my code, no any engines. Even vectors and matrices are mine. I chose an approach of “lazy” update of game objects. This means that every time when I’m asking for position or rotation of an object, code checks if it was changed and if it was - it calculates necessary data. Currently I’m thinking about switching to another system, so I’ll not write about it in detail.For physics I’m using bounding spheres. That will be the only volumes I’ll use. They’re very simple (translate)

R Programming is the second class in the Data Science specialization at Coursera. I really enjoyed this course.  When I completed the project for my Masters degree I used R to process and analyze the results.  At the time, I started all of my data processing in Python.  Then I need to implement a variety […] (translate)

Rating: (Total Clicks 2)

The Data Scientist’s Toolbox is the first course in the “Data Science” specialization available from Coursera.  The specialization itself will be very interesting to complete.  The point of the specialization is to learn how to use R to perform statistical analyses in a professional environment.  You will learn how to use R and how to work […] (translate)
