First Go Textbook Overview

2012.12.17
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Three of us are going to write a textbook.  The textbook is targeted at second year programming students.  The textbook is to be about development of applications that leverage the mobile+cloud architectural paradigm. The textbook will weave best practice throughout the telling and will encourage good habits.  The intention – even within the context of a textbook – will be to guide the learner through an experience that is analogous to real-world application development.  Software engineering lifecycle processes will be emphasised.   The community of practice will be introduced.   Professional life will be discussed.  General principles and practices of mobile+cloud development will be espoused.  These general principles and practices will be concretised in a specific regime that marries Apple iOS and Amazon Web Services.

Lawyer Interpretation Rather Than Scientist Interpretation

2012.12.10
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

So I am working on a grant application for work-work. In this grant application they use words like ‘hypothesis’ and ‘experiment’ which to me are giant red flags and entirely problematic if the intent is to address these issues from a genuinely scientific perspective.  Spoke of my concerns to a friend who suggested I address these matters using the lawyer perspective rather than the scientist perspective.  I think this suggestion may help me get through it.

Prepping the first batch of survey invites

2012.12.08
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

The time has arrived to send out the first batch of survey invites. There is some work to be done in preparation for this happy event.

 

  • Do a couple more trials to self
  • Delete and rebuild database so it is fresh at the beginning
  • Note: i should start doing regular db backups once this gets going
  • List work:
  • Assemble the complete list as presently exists,
  • Create a worksheet copy of the original and clean it up;
  • Create a new worksheet with just last name, first name, email addy, token field, and randomise field.
  • Randomise
  • Get the first 100 and add tokens
  • Import the first 50 into the db
  • Generate the email invites with ‘salutations’
  • Import the second 50 into the db
  • Generate emails invites with ‘first name’
  • Not sure what to do with the plea to meet certain date.  I don’t like it because it is gamesmanship and the invites are going to be rolling out over time. I might just remove it.

Ok. Time, i think for a run, then i get to it. Well, i will work on list for a bit first. Still couple hours till dark.

Fifty Words

2012.12.08
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Taking a cue from a friend, I shall begin the attempt to produce fifty words per day on this blog of mine. Get myself in the regular habit of writing. This goes hand in hand with my desire to practice music for thirty minutes a day. Daily practice, whatever the practice may be, is so fundamental to the person that i can be.
