A picture kaleidoscope with processing

A while ago, I stumbled over an article about kaleidoscope creation, probably because of one of my adobe Flash collaborators. It was lying around for a while, then during a train ride i hacked something like that together in Processing. It is impressing how different a picture looks when mirrored this way.
I spent quite some more time to fine tune the sketch. I created an applet to play around on the web, but i recommend downloading the real application. The download version runs smoother and in full screen, plus you can load your own images and save snapshots.

Progress on PHPCR with a hackday

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: http://blog.liip.ch/archive/2011/05/12/progress-on-phpcr-with-a-hackday.html

This weekend we had a hackday on PHPCR. The goal was to coordinate the efforts of Midgard to implement PHPCR with the Jackalope project. We ended up doing a few important cleanups to the PHPCR API definition (see below). We had Henri and Eero from the Midgard project, Benjamin from the Doctrine project and Jordi, Lukas, Chregu and myself (David) from Liip. On the second day, Uwe, Johannes and Dan join us to push the PHPCR doctrine layer further.

Kinect and Processing

At a recent Liip Hackday, i worked with the Microsoft Kinect Depth Sensor. I took Processing Simple-OpenNI and added the "push" and "swipe" detectors. To install the processing openni library, you first need the Kinect drivers, OpenNI and NITE. We were successful with the guide of SensorKinect. Then you get the trunk version from google code.

Beyond mysqldump

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: http://blog.liip.ch/archive/2011/04/04/beyond-mysqldump.html

There are several ways to transfer data from one mysql server to an other. Dumping a full table and re-importing it is rather simple, but sometimes you only want to transfer a selection of data. I will quickly explain the most common ones and then explain how i solved my way out of having neither phpmyadmin nor the privileges of SELECT...INTO OUTFILE.

Recap Symfony Live Conference in Paris

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: https://blog.liip.ch/recap-symfony-live-conference-in-paris.html

Last week, there was the Symfony Live conference in Paris. The conference was surprisingly big, about 500 developers came together in the impressing building of Cité Universitaire Internationale. The main topic was of course the upcoming Symfony2 release. We had two days of talks and a hackday on Saturday, and lots of fun every night. The topics are on the conference website, some discussion and slides are on joind.in.

Hackday for Symfony2 CMF

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: https://blog.liip.ch/hackday-for-symfony2-cmf.html

Last week we had a hackday on the Symfony2 CMF. We played with the first CMF sandbox and made it do some basic things. You can see the result with some simplistic cms at our sandbox clone. It just shows a node (at route /cms/<path>), assuming you first created some nodes (at /admin). Along with the node itself, we show the breadcrumb and child nodes, to demonstrate how the hierarchy can be used.
