Tuesday 08 October 2013 The Forest Road Reader, No 93

An interesting, but slightly slow-moving, presentation about Java libraries you almost certainly didn't know about but probably would benefit from if not know but in the future. That's not the actual title, but it should. If you're in a hurry, head straight for the slides.

I just sent a useful work email.

My heart sank particularly when we arrived at Helena Bonham Carter's brothel. A review of the recent Lone Ranger film that actually made me want to see it.

Listening to Ritula Shah interview Tommy Robinson. This is stating the bleeding obvious, but he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Spent the last few digging deep into old, old, old Java. Formulating/discovering some small guidelines to drag it into the modern age. Might have to re-write my Iterators talk. Simultaneously laying shiny new web front end on it. Without wanting to sound like a tedious old duffer, I've been using JavaScript since before it was called JavaScript and doing this AJAX malarkey before it even had a name. None the less, this book, pointed out by Robert Brook in his splendid daily email, looked like just the thing. Tomorrow I'll be started to wire the ropey old Java and the shiny new UI together. Predictably enough, I'll be using the medium of JSON.

Inform, educate, entertain. But not necessarily all at once is fine with me.

My balls are blue. Time for bed.
