This is a pretty cool "game" I played at the Arcade game expo in Amsterdam. The idea is to drop an rfid tag in a small tea cup and a projector hanging above the tea cup would emit info about you around the cup. Unfortunately, not all info was correct. But the idea behind it is pretty cool.
Last time we talked about ViewModels in DD4T and how this architecture can make your Views more manageable. To see how this all fits, I've uploaded a sample solution.
You would think that the default Component model in a Razor template is the only way to render your View in the DD4T framework. It's the default setting, but isn't there a better, more cleaner way to organize your Model/View/Controller logic?
I’ve been going to quite some conferences, but the one I have been dying to go is to Google I/O. Not because of the tons of presents they give out (which imho this conference could go easily without), but because there are always lots of announcements and the sessions are always very interesting. Of course these are/will be available on Youtube too. So far quite some session recordings have already been uploaded and the rest of the sessions will follow these coming days.
Yesterday FilmsOpTV was approved and available in BlackBerry App World. FilmsOpTV is a slimmed down Playbook version of FilmDroid for Android.
There seems to be a new proposal for a new Tridion stackexchange site. If you want to support a good Tridion cause, why not support this one?
Recently I discovered GetGlue after a work buddy of mine told me I should check it out. A lot has been written already, but I had never heard about it until a couple of days ago. The press call it the thing to look out for in 2011 and it is already quite big. The site already has more than 700,000 users and there are already 10M check-ins each month. Quite impressive for a startup.
There are several types of XML webservices these days and although SOAP is the most used, REST seems to get more popularity. For the iPhone application I'm writing I needed a webservice that's lightweight and easy to be consumed.
