    Hello, Groovy! 

    My new job demands me to learn a lot of new things that I never wanted to! Today I wrote my first ever Groovy script. And it compiled and run! Awesome 🙂

    package subin.groovy;
    
    /**
     * Hello, World!
     *
     * @author Subinkrishna Gopi
     */
    class HelloWorld
    {
    	static def aString = "Hello, World!"
    	static void main(args)
    	{
    		println("${aString.toUpperCase()} it's a nice day today :)")
    	}
    }

    Today’s read: Get Started Developing for Android with Eclipse 

    This one is pretty good. Perhaps one of the very useful how-tos! I read this article in smashingmagazine.com a few days back. I was thinking of sharing it from that moment. It’s better late than never. The article talks a lot of things. From about installing the Android SDK, configuring it and even about writing a sample application.

    There’s a lot to get excited about in mobile application development today. With increasingly sophisticated hardware, tablet PCs and a variety of software platforms (Symbian OS, iOS, WebOS, Windows Phone 7…), the landscape for mobile developers is full of opportunities — and a little complex as well.

    So much choice can be overwhelming when you just want to get started building mobile applications. Which platform should you choose? What programming language should you learn? What kit do you need for your planned project? In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to start writing applications for Android, the open-source mobile operating system popularized by Google.

    Today’s read: IE9 Review 


    I am a big Microsoft fan, though I work in open-source. Every time when they come up with  a new product or a major upgrade, I keep my fingers crossed. Reasons are pretty obvious. Today I got a chance to read an article on IE9 – Internet Explorer 9 Beta: Reviewed and Benchmarked – and I’m pretty much happy with the progress they made.

    Microsoft is making some bold claims with the release of Internet Explorer 9 Beta. They explain that other browsers, unlike IE9 Beta, only use 10% of your PC’s capabilities; they show how websites will be streamlined and work faster by taking advantage of your graphics processing unit (GPU), and how a range of new features will provide a richer experience when combined with Windows 7. Today, we will be looking at what new features IE9 Beta has to offer, and how it performs when bench-marked against Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

    Today’s read: Various ! 

    It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I was kinda busy with so many things and that made me to stay away from writing for these many days.

    Today I’ve found a few articles in fastcompany.com (via twitter), fastcodesign.com & Smashing Magazine. And I’m really surprised by some of the facts which I found and some facts are really cool.

    1. You Can’t Appreciate How Completely Apple Has Humiliated The Cellphone Industry Until You See These Charts (Article page)
    This really surprised me. This article talks about how Apple rules the cell phone industry in terms of the profit they make even though they sell only 3% of the handsets! Don’t miss the charts in that page. They tell lot of stories.

    2. Google Steals Ideas From Bing, Bing Steals Market Share From Google (Article page)
    This made me happy. I am a big Microsoft fan though I work most on open source ! And I am really happy with the way how Bing works for them.

    3. Create a Font From Your Own Handwriting (Article page)
    This is what the article says !

    If you’re nostalgic for the days of long, handwritten letters, Pilot Pens has unveiled a new Web-based app that’s perfect for you: PilotHandwriting.com will turn your handwriting into your very own digital font, which you can then use in a letter to someone.

    4. Designing Style Guidelines For Brands And Websites (Article page)
    The article talks more about the branding guidelines, usage of colors, text and fonts with the help of guidelines followed by some of the well known global brands like BlackBerry, I love New York and Skype.

    Have a nice read !
