We have been working on bunch of products (indiereign.com, and others) for sometime. To take these products to next level, quickly and elegantly, we have recently started expanding our team.
We are starting our new development centre in Noida. We want to connect, talk to and hire smart and passionate developers (hackers) who love to work on products in a small company or a startup (like ours).
We are looking for:
bright and smart guys
one who can fit in our (small team/company/startup) culture, and becomes a great team player
can learn, adapt and use cutting/bleeding edge technologies
can inspire and mentor others
importantly, loves building cool, useful and scalable products/services
Experience, we would like to see:
proficiency with one ore more languages (Python, Ruby, PHP, Scala, etc.)
proficiency with analytical approach to problem solving
has worked or very interested to work on other frameworks (Django, Rails, Symfony, etc.)
Mobile Application Developer (iOS or Android or both) - apps/games development;
We are not rigid about number of years (of experience). We think experience comes out of depth, challenges one has taken, and how many great problems one has solved over the time. If someone has all that, we are happy to talk to him/her.
If you are interested or know someone who is good fit; I would appreciate, if you can connect with me (aqabiz at allies.co.in) and share details.
I spent some time playing with Google Gears LocalServer (ResourceStore) to cache some video files from YouTube/Google-Video on client. It seems, you can only cache (store) data from same-origin. I might be wrong, but this is what I found.
I would spend more time to find out if there is a way.
Gmail uses mouse-down event instead of click (mouse-button-release) at many places (Compose Mail, Inbox, Chats etc) in it’s frontend.
I face following problems because of their wrong choice of event (mouse-down instead of click):
I can’t select text while in list view. For example, if I want to select the sender’s name or subject, instead it opens the mail thread.
If mouse-button is pressed by mistake on any of links (Compose Mail, Inbox etc), associated action takes place and I am forced to click on browser’s back button (or equivalent) to get back to previous state (screen/view). I don’t get a chance to change my mind by releasing mouse-button outside of link area.
Niall Kennedy has posted interesting article, where he compares client-side-storage of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Adobe Flash Player.
Though, the title of post talks only about AJAX, I still find it useful in general. I thought to post it, you might find it useful. Check it out.
Example Flex 2.0 code:
xmlns="com.abdulqabiz.utils.*" width="100%" height="100%" creationComplete="onAppInit ()">
private var service:HTTPService;
private function onAppInit ():void
service = new HTTPService ();
service.url = "test.js";
service.useProxy = false;
service.resultFormat = "text";
private function invokeSayHelloWorld ():void
private function invokeSaySomething (str:String):void
ExternalInterface.call ("saySomething", str);
Test.js used in example:
var myName = "Abdul Qabiz";
function saySomething (str)
function sayHelloWorld ()
alert ("Hello World!");
I am thinking to load FABridge using this approach. I know, it’s practically of no use except keeping code and logic at one place.
