D3.js has been on my learning list for quite some time, but
A Technical Intro to D3 – A four-slide presentation that serves as more of a teaser reference for other sources.
How to Animate Transitions Between Multiple Charts – Looks like a first rate tutorial (with source code) from FlowingData.
Introduction to Network Analysis and Representation – An overview from Stanford.
Metacasts.tv by Mark Bates – Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, and all things Ruby related. $9 per month.
Resources I’d like to (one day) take advantage of.
Data Structures and Algorithms with Object-Oriented Design Patterns in Ruby – Online book that covers sorting, insertion, graph traversals and more.
Algorithms: Fourth Edition – Free online algorithms textbook includes sorting and more.
Frontend Masters – Free and paid lessons ($20/month) for videos.
Lincoln Loop – DRM-free training videos on all things from backbone.js to performance problems.
Rails 3 in a Nutshell – Probably a simple introductory text, but I find I always learn a thing or two from O’Reilly.
Advanced HTML and CSS – A nice set of lessons I hope to conquer sometime in the near future.
The ABC-owned stations are launching a new iPhone app — one branded for each station — that blends the utility of an alarm clock with news, weather and custom wake-up alarms. “Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!” says KRTK-TV anchor Sharron Melton after a burst of news music. “Rise and shine you wonderful person you.” In the Houston market app we tested, you could also hear wake-up messages from anchors Tom Koch, Casey Curry and Don Nelson. Or if you prefer, a bout of breaking news music to turbocharge your morning.
Did you catch the line where the newscaster mimics a phrase Leslie Knope so famously popularized in her every reference to her best friend Anne? Yeah, you know what I mean. “Rise and shine you wonderful person you.”
Oh Anne, you beautiful innocent moth.
Popular culture infiltrates everything.
