Distri.js – Distributed computing for the web

Distri is a server-client software package that brings distributed, or volunteer computing to the browser. (Faster math for your project!) Distri-Node is the server, powered by Node.js, that distributes the work to the clients. The client, Distri.js, runs in your browser, and accepts work from a Distri server.

Inspired by BOINC, this bundle aims to allow the computing power of the volunteer pool to be greater than ever with it coming to the web.

Distri asks for consent to use the user’s computer for science on first time visiting the page, so the user is not blindly used for what the website owner wants them to be used for.

Great! Visit the documentation for Distri-Node and Distri.js to get started.

This person worked with giant relational databases and built APIs that serve up JSON and even (gasp!) XML.This person is a backend developer, so for a long time, JavaScript was just a fun little toy that added a bit of frontend trickery that could make things on a web page change color. If JavaScript was being really useful, it would add form validation that helped prevent the wrong information from getting into the database. Eight years ago jQuery blew this person’s mind. JavaScript itself was a language one merely tolerated, but never embraced.Then JavaScript and its modern frameworks ate backend, frontend, and everything in between, and it was time to re-become a web

5 things to keep in mind when building an Alexa skill

A team of us at Red Badger, which consisted of myself, Marcel, Graham and Roman, had two weeks to play around with Amazon’s Alexa and build a sommelier skill to recommend wine pairings to your food. We’re writing a four-part series to take you through what we learned from our varied perspectives. There’s been so many blog posts written about the rise of chatbots and Voice User Interface (VUI), some even marking 2017 to be the year of the bots. This is new territory for both developers and designers. Developers are ramping up their skills to make machines take inputs… [Continue Reading]

YouTube’s automatic captioning system can now describe sound effects

 YouTube has long had an automatic captioning system that, thanks to Google’s machine learning advances in recent years, has gotten pretty good at automatically transcribing spoken words in a video.
