At the moment cloud computing is somewhat scattered over various big players. All of them have their own standards and ways to implement their cloud. But they all have one thing in common. All of the cloud service providers basically want your app to be ran from their cloud, and they all have an automatic system to deploy your app into their cloud. I don’t know if this is already common knowledge out there, but I think there is a huge opportunity for a completely new market to be born. Continue reading Cloud Brokers to Marketize the Cloud
This week I stumbled upon a great mystery of Lazy Loading. I have seen this effect on multiple websites but never an example of how to do it.
The basic idea is that when you have many images on a website, they tend to take a lot of time to load when user connects to your website. With lazy load we can prevent the loading of these images until user should see them. Continue reading jQuery Lazy Loading Images with Simple Example
One of the most used functions of all time in programming is the sleep function. This widely spread function has come across at some point for us all. Usually at the beginning of learning how to program, we get the need to know how to processing of our finely tuned software. Most of the times this due to programming something in a funny way or just debugging and finding out what is going on.
Sleep function is part of every modern and not so modern programming language. It is used on many tasks but usually the main task of it is to wait something to happen. It usually works by suspending the execution of currently processing thread, but I think there are some solutions which just causes the program to “wait” until the time specified in the Sleep Function has passed.

The idea for this post came at me when I was offered a brand new MacBook Pro at my workplace. Continue reading Windows, Mac and Linux
With the latest CSS version CSS3 we were introduced on a major scale to the world of CSS Shadow. On January 13th 2015 Firefox officially enabled full support for CSS filters which allows developers to abandon old methods and conquer the new. In celebration of this I have concluded a post which contains examples of great CSS Shadow effects and how to use them.
There are thousands of usage points with filters and one of the best is CSS Shadow. In order to achieve the effects of shadows in web design we may use text shadow, drop shadow or box shadow. The best case is if you can make a plain image and apply CSS Shadow to that and not create the picture with the shadow. This creates amazing effects on differently scaled and sized devices.
