OpenTSDB should allow anticipatory systems to emerge from sensor data in business, here’s how, apply control theory math:
- The Fourier transform, named after Joseph Fourier, is a mathematical transformation employed to transform signals between time domain and frequency domain, which has many applications in physics and engineering. Wikipedia
These transforms used to be hard work done in Fortran code for weather and forecasting type applications, now available in Wolfram and open source. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FourierTransform.html
Framework: Strongloop’s Loopback for Node.js APIs
Recently I did a series for New Relic on three frameworks, both for APIs and web apps. I titled it “Evaluating Node.js Frameworks: hapi.js, Restify, and Geddy” and it is available via the New Relic Blog. To check out those frameworks give that blog entry a read, then below I’ve added one more framework to the list, Strongloop’s Loopback.
Strength: Very feature-rich generation of models, data…
Smartphone owners’ appetite for new apps wanes - FT.com -
Smartphone owners’ waning appetite for new apps is casting a shadow over what has been a technology market hotspot and is fuelling mobile developers’ concerns that their best days of growth are coming to an end. Almost a third of smartphone users do
I still feel Appstores offer value to startups, perhaps time the mobile web components provides basis for complete applications on desktop and beyond?
