  • Interesting theory, but can you really train a Java developer in under 3 months? Great list of training services provided in this blog.excerpt:They’re handing out Gutenberg printing presses out there: with services like Treehouse ( and Codecademy ( (and its expertly-timed year of code), countless university courses free online, Google Code University (, the warm embrace of Stack Overflow, in-person courses like Dev Bootcamp (, summer camps for kids, even the promise of a one-day result with Decoded ( (the six-minute abs of learning to code), and great organizations like CodeNow ( reaching out to teach code in underserved communities.

  • Interesting development in the world of real time Web Apps.  Looks like Business processes and services in the Cloud are embracing HTML5, and moving fast to replace legacy client/server.  Note this is not Flash or Silverlight RiA.   excerpt: Telax Hosted Call Center, a leader in cloud contact center solutions announced the release of its HTML5-based Call Center Agent (CCA) today. Key to the development of the browser-based CCA was Websocket, a component of HTML5 that provides a bi-directional, full-duplex communication channel over a single Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) socket. Websocket is currently supported by the latest versions of Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Firefox, making Telax's new CCA compatible with the most popular browsers in Mac environments. Before HTML5, real-time unified communication software was typically deployed as a local client because its browser-based counterparts were unable to deliver an acceptable user experience. Some browser-based clients use 3rd party software such as Adobe Flash or Sliverlight to operate adequately, but both solutions require software installation and are not mobile friendly.
