CoffeeScript Is JavaScript Without The Headaches

I’ve never really liked writing JavaScript all that much. From the day I wrote my first line using it, I’ve always resented that whatever I write in it always ends up looking like a Jackson Pollock painting. Blegh. Despite its power and flexibility, JavaScript is by no means a pretty language. It takes verbosity to an extreme and has so many quirks and idiosyncrasies, even the most famous book about the JavaScript programming language nods to its inherent nastiness with its title ‘JavaScript: The Good Parts’. Fortunately, there is a better alternative: CoffeeScript.

To The Manner Born: Essential Technology Etiquette Tips For Our Digital Age

Technology etiquette could easily fall under the topic of “common sense” yet there are many who remain ignorant — and that’s not a judgment against those who don’t know any better. For a long while, I never knew the acceptable rules of etiquette for handling phones, shooting emails, and general Internet behavior. I was being rude without even knowing it, and there’s a chance you could be doing the same.

Airfoil Adds Extended AirPlay Functionality To Mac and PC

AirPlay is Apple’s way of wirelessly streaming audio and video to supported devices on your local network. If you have one of Apple’s more recent Airport base stations, an Apple TV or a Boxee box at home, you should already be able to stream music from your computer to your entertainment system, wirelessly. Apple has made it notably more difficult to use AirPlay with third-party apps like Spotify or Rdio instead of iTunes. For that, you’ll need something like Airfoil.

Want To Stand Out On Instagram? Edit Your Photos With The Amazing Handy Photo

There’s one thing to be said for Instagram: it got us all into a photo-editing craze. Not that editing photos is anything new, but with Instagram in the picture, everyone wants to be editing photos on their smartphones, and if possible, not using those same old Instagram filters everyone else does. I’m not saying there aren’t any good apps out there. My go-to photo editor, Snapseed, is both free and extremely good, and Aviary is another great option. But is that all there is? I was inclined to think so, when I came across Handy Photo (Google Play/iTunes).

Arch Linux: Letting You Build Your Linux System From Scratch

For Linux power users, it’s highly desirable to be able to completely customize your system. Sometimes, that can be best achieved from the start — by piecing together the components that you’d like to include on your system. This way, as there are usually multiple programs that achieve the same result in different manners, you can pick those applications which you’re most fond of. Most common desktop distributions don’t make this high level of customization very possible (as it’s not ideal and more difficult), but Arch Linux isn’t like most distributions.
