CF United 09 Presentation Files - Google App Engine and Flex

Ok folks, here are my preso files for my CF United 2009 talk on Google App Engine and Flex.  Is this the final version?  Sure.  Until I change it.  I shall resist doing that...


Here is the powerpoint presentation download: 294_Andrew_Schwabe_Google_App_Engine_Flex.ppt

Here is the full download (warning, this is big!) Contains all 4 google app engine java projects, all 4 flex projects and the powerpoint file.  The download is big because of all the jar files.  I will try to have a USB key with me so if you want a super fun time instant copy instead of downloading it, I should be able to do that.

Full download (94MB, zipped):

For those of you web surfers interested -- demo 4 project includes a fix for allowing Flex app using AMF to retrieve Google Account information (using ajax and a custom auto servlet) so your Flex apps can determine if you are logged in, and get your user identifier if you are logged in.

Installing python 3.4.x on OSX El Capitan

I love "brew" package manager, but sometimes being too progressive breaks things.  I have several python apps that I maintain that get deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk.  AWS eb can deploy with python 2.7 or 3.4.  Any recent 'brew install python3" will get 3.5.1. #annoying

Making Macbook Air with 128GB SSD usable with Bootcamp

I recently got a new Macbook Air 11" (the 2012 version) and loaded it with goodies like 8GB ram and 2GHz Core i7.  What I DIDN'T upgrade was the internal SSD.  My config came with 128GB SSD and I refused to pay $300+ to upgrade it to 256GB.  Yeah I know, some call me cheap, but SSds cost $75-$150 for 240GB, so adding another 128GB for $300 seemed way too steep for me.  I figured "ok, I'm going to make 128G work!"

Here is the story of how that went...

Election day plus 1: Social Media Nightmare

It is election day plus 1, and a very emotional day with no way to win for many.

Social media was a force to be reckoned with this election year.  No matter what position you take, the world is ready to pounce on you and tell you why YOU are evil, intolerant or a deplorable -- and the reason for all their woes.  This isn't a new problem, though...  All of the liberal vs conservative issues are causing rifts between otherwise civil people, and it seems to be the worst on Facebook and twitter.

If I say I am for Hillary:
i am part of the "corrupt system."

If I say I am against Hillary:
I am stupid and uneducated

If I say I am for Trump:
I am against women,
I am religiously intolerant,
I am a bigot

If I say I am against Trump:
I am against the 2nd amendment,
I don't have any idea how government works,
I am part of the problem with American society,
I am against the police

Stay with me now, this isn't meant to make people angry, but it is mean to shine some light on a social …
