  • Celebrating Thanksgiving in Costa Rica | Informatech CR Blog
    delicious lunch with all our friends in the office there was much fun to come eggnog and Christmas cake were the perfect closing for a wonderful day A soccer game and paint ball were just around the corner Some excited soccer players came in the office that day carrying their bags with all they need to play a great soccer game 11 45 am time to go and play everyone got in cars and headed to the soccer field the sun was shining and we were all ready to show our best on the field We could hear Go Sabooo Go everyone running around the field playing soccer and the game was great but the sun was really shining and we all started to breath faster we needed to drink water or juice to recover breath After 2 minutes it is totally normal to be this tired or maybe not Thanksgiving Day took us to a nice forest in Heredia special clothing paintball guns and paint balls everything was ready And the snipers Oh yes they were all getting ready putting on that special clothing given to start the game Girls complained about colors and fabric It was time to start the game excitement arose and we were all ready to start a lot of trees around and we could hardly hear the instructions we wanted to start the game And finally we did it two teams and we started to shoot The first painted members were walking to the dead zone Three different games dirty clothes swollen feet and some bruises couldn t do anything against those happy faces They were all tired but satisfied We reached our goal we made them happy Team work can be done easily if team members are true friends At Informatech Costa Rica

    promised since the Space Age arrived Why Consider these two events that occured last year A computer virus Stuxnet was able to penetrate and deal as much damage to Iran s nuclear facilities as a full blown military strike Consider this not a life was lost not a bullet fired yet because of a piece of software that had to propagate through USB thumbdrives an entire country has been delayed years in a national endeavour Don t believe it Read Wikileaks I think that s all that needs to be said but more specifically how the entire diplomacy of the world s last superpower came to standstill because someone downloaded and posted it all online This is it this is the Future No longer are the virtual and real world separate they ve been meshing together and now finally the computer Internet revolutions changed all aspects of society world wide The challenges now are that as the Internet and computers have pushed into real word issues so have traditional real world issues pushed into the Internet In particular censorship like the traditional media has faced for ages from autocrats is now setting is sights on Web media Consider Venezuela s new Social Reponsibility in Media law 9 933333 84 083333 Share this Email Facebook Twitter Like this Like Loading Related January 5 2011 by pjpalm801 Categories News Tags 2010 censorship future stuxnet venezuela wikileaks Leave a comment Post navigation Ruby on Windows Now Easier How Google pulled off Instant Preview Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Please log in using one of these methods to post your comment Email required Address never made public Name required Website You are commenting using your WordPress com account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Twitter account Log Out

  • JSApps 101: Introduction To JavaScript Applications | Informatech CR Blog
    tasks dynamically on the browser better known as the client side without the need of refreshing the page But as popularity of JavaScript arise let s thank jQuery for that it is being delegated with more and more complex stuff like rendering templates into HTML so it is done client side and not server side binding of server data validation of user input and controlling page flow This being said a JavaScript application is basically a client that runs on the browser thanks to the leverage of technologies such as JavaScript HTML5 and CSS3 All of the UI logic is controlled client side right there in the browser Structure of a JavaScript App Before moving on it is true that this requires a paradigm shift if you have been working on traditional web applications for a while specially if you have never used a Model View Controller approach If you have never heard of or used Model View Controller I m afraid there is some reading to be done before continuing But hey You can start here or else you can continue reading this incredibly sexy article As mentioned before a JavaScript application or JS App patent pending usually follows an MVC approach It is composed of several views which are usually HTML documents or templates controllers that handles validation logic flow and communications with the server and models that contains the data to be displayed and bind on the views As you might notice is a pretty similar model to server side technologies like ASP NET MVC and Spring MVC just that the entire presentation layer is being moved to the browser specifically into JavaScript components We ll analyze advantages of this later on With all the presentation logic being handled by the browser where does the data we see on the UI coming from It comes from the server that is the real use we have for it The controller at the browser is the one responsible for this channel of communication it retrieves data from the server each time the user pages through a data grid and sends data to it whenever the user needs to create or edit information JS Apps work in a similar way to smartphone apps in which a client runs on the phone locally and it uses data coming from a remote server In fact there are specialized build tools like PhoneGap that creates applications to be installed on a smartphone from HTML JS CSS3 sources Pros Cons While JS Apps goes far off any conventional use of a browser it offers several advantages Rendering of pages and templates is done by the browser in the client computer taking advantage of the client computer s processing power and leaving less workload on the server Better user interface responsiveness since all calls to the server are asynchronously and JavaScript UI components are usually lightweight Completely decoupled from the server logic Less calls to the server since it is only accessed to get data

  • Programmer Jokes | Informatech CR Blog
    himself cryogenically frozen when he died One day in the future he was unexpectedly resurrected When he asked why he was unfrozen he was told It s the year 9999 and you know Cobol A geologist and a Java programmer are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY The geologist leans over to the programmer and asks if he would like to play a fun game The programmer just wants to take a nap so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks The geologist persists and explains that the game is real easy and a lotta fun He explains I ask you a question and if you don t know the answer you pay me 5 Then you ask me a question and if I don t know the answer I ll pay you 5 Again the programmer politely declines and tries to get to sleep The geologist now somewhat agitated says OK if you don t know the answer you pay me 5 and if I don t know the answer I ll pay you 50 This catches the programmer s attention and he sees no end to this torment unless he plays so he agrees to the game The geologist asks the first question What s the distance from the Earth to the moon The programmer doesn t say a word but reaches into his wallet pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the geologist Now it s the programmer s turn He asks the Geologist What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down on four The geologist looks up at him with a puzzled look He takes out his laptop computer and searches all of his references He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress Frustrated he sends e mail to his co workers all to no avail After about an hour he wakes the programmer and hands him 50 The programmer politely takes the 50 and turns away to try to get back to sleep The Geologist is more than a little miffed shakes the programmer and asks Well so what s the answer Without a word the programmer reaches into his wallet hands the geologist 5 and turns away to get back to sleep Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the side of a deserted road Suddenly a brand new Porsche screeches to a halt The driver a man dressed in an Armani suit Cerutti shoes Ray Ban sunglasses TAG Heuer wrist watch and a Versace tie gets out and asks the Shepherd Man If I can tell you how many sheep you have will you give me one of them The shepherd looks at the young man and then looks at the large flock of grazing sheep and replies Shepherd Okay The young man parks the car connects his
