After doing a survey of local folks early in 2013 and finding that "virtual training" was the top need, I organized the 31 UX Tips virtual conference in May of 2013. I have also encouraged others to host Rosenfeld virtual events in the area. It is a good way to get the local community together, enjoy top-notch speakers, at a very low cost. I still need sponsors for the April 24 event. Let me know if you are interested, or if you want to recommend a company for me to contact. Blog topics: UXTR

    I will be doing a presentation about user experience research-practice interaction (aka UXRPI) at the AIGA Design Educators conference Connecting Dots (March 14-15, 2014, Cincinnati, Ohio). Even though I am not a design educator, I thought it was worth proposing something to help find connections between the HCI researchers and User Experience practitioners, who I have been hanging out with, and design educators, who are asking questions about "what constitutes appropriate and effective research." And the conference is nearby, in Ohio. Preparing for the session means writing a paper (version…

    I hosted an Idea Market about User Experience Research and Practice at the UXPA 2013 conference in DC on July 11th. Another event in the series exploring the challenges and solutions to the research-practice gap in UX. Idea Markets are informal, discussion-oriented events. I has some space to put up info to announce the topic. Some people came by and left comments at random times, but most of the activity was during a special session for idea markets: a break in the regular program. We had up to 8 people talking at once and a few people were recruited to participate as certain topics came up.

So you can use Kibana to search, analyze and make pretty graphs out of them. This is especially useful when you have a lot of servers logging [a lot of data] to their syslog daemons and you want a way to search them quickly or do…

I wanted to get an up to date configuration out based on some recent work for our upcoming Pulse 2014 demo making use of the latest versions of logstash v1.3.3 and our SCALA v1.2.0 release. Nothing significantly different per se, but the changes in logstash syntax and internal event flow/routing has significantly changed from v1.1.x. I’ve included an example logstash v1.3.3 configuration file in my git repo here. It should be simple to follow the flow from inputs, filters and outputs.

  • Wunderbar JQuery filter

    Sam Ruby
    26 Jan 2014 | 9:55 am
    W I got a suggestion to look into React.js, a JavaScript library which is focused on the problemspace that Angular.js’s directive addresses. One of the ways React.js facilitates the creation of web components is via JSX which mixes “XML” with JavaScript.  The “XML” is “desugared” into React.DOM calls. Based on this idea, I created a Wunderbar jquery filter to “desugar” Wunderbar calls into JQuery calls.  The tests show some of the conversions.  I also updated my Bootstrap modal dialog directive to make use of this: before => after.
  • Ruby2js += underscore.js

    Sam Ruby
    23 Jan 2014 | 6:52 am
    When compared to Ruby, JavaScript doesn’t have as much functional support built in.  Underscore.js fills that gap for many.  Underscore.js, in turn, was inspired by Ruby’s Enumerable module.  A underscore filter (tests) completes the mapping. In many cases, the resulting JavaScript is formed by applying a number of filter rules.  For example, starting with: a.flatten!() This is first expanded to use Array.prototype.slice to ensure the update happens in place: a.splice(0, a.length, *a.flatten()) Next, the method call is rewritten to use the underscore flatten function: a.splice(0,…

    The city is the most complex machine ever invented. Running optimally the city generates opportunity and provides a platform for interaction, ideas, and improvement. As a concept the city has been iterated-upon, smashed and burnt to the ground, rebuilt, deliberately-designed, haphazardly-organized, and generally resilient for many millennia. But the city is still a human invention and every single one is flawed, many horribly so. Which makes cities the ultimate problem set. For the engineering-minded and entrepreneurial the challenge of cities has enticed since the first itinerant merchants…
