From the Bookmarks Bar – July 12, 2013

I’m going to give something new a shot here.  From the Bookmarks Bar is a weekly round-up of interesting software development related links from around the web.  In general, it’s just a collection of things that I think you may find interesting.  Without further ado, here some favorites From the Bookmarks Bar for this week:

New Programming Jargon

We’ve all run into these issues from time to time.  This article reads like a book of the best programming related jokes.  Smurf Naming Convention is my favorite.

Raspberry Pi Powered Microwave

Disappointed by the lack of features on your microwave?  Why not overhaul it by integrating a Raspberry Pi?

The Visitor Pattern Explained

Many developers have only a brief understanding of the visitor pattern even after using it.  This is a detailed and practical example of the usage and practices of the visitor pattern.

How to Modify Bootstrap Simply and Effectively

Here is a collection of some great Bootstrap mods as well as some tools to easily modify Bootstrap to your tastes.  Want to make your Bootstrap based site look like Facebook or Metro in Windows?  An add-on can make it happen.

Super Mario Bros. 3 Match Game in Javascript

This is a fun one.  A developer has built a slick recreation of the match game from Super Mario Bros. 3, written entirely in JavaScript.  The project is well segmented and structured and is a good example for those looking to learn modern JS.  Source code is available here:  https://github.com/callmehiphop/mario-cards

That’s it for this week.  I’ll be experimenting with From the Bookmarks Bar over the next couple of weeks.  Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Thanks for reading!
