Plain Functional Programming by Martin Odersky
Subscribe to Devoxx on YouTube @ https://bit.ly/devoxx-youtube Like Devoxx on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/devoxxcom Follow Devoxx on Twitter @ https://twitter.com/devoxx In a short time, functional programming went from an obscure academic endeavor to the technology "du jour" of the software industry. On the one side, this is great, because functional programming holds real promise to simplify the construction of highly reliable software. On the other hand, it is also frightening because the current hype might lead to over-selling and sometimes too uncritical adoption of concepts that have not yet been sufficiently validated in practice. In particular I see with worry the trend to over-abstract, which often leads to cargo-cult technology. In this talk I give my opinion of what the core of functional programming is that we can and should use today, why that core matters, and where we currently face challenges. I argue for combining functional programming with the principle of least power, for eschewing fancy abstractions, and for being modest in what we can and should express in our programs. I also show how some of these approaches are reflected in our work on the next version of Scala. Martin Odersky is the inventor of the Scala language, a professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, and a founder of Lightbend. His work concentrates on the fusion of functional and object-oriented programming. He believes the two paradigms are two sides of the same coin, to be unified as much as possible. To prove this, he has worked on a number of language designs, from Pizza to GJ to Functional Nets. He has also influenced the development of Java as a co-designer of Java generics and as the original author of the current javac reference compiler.

Emphasizing high-quality instructional videos, Howcast brings you experts who provide accurate information in easy-to-follow tutorials on everything from makeup, hairstyling, nail art design, and soccer to parkour, skateboarding, dancing, kissing, and much, much more. Step 1: Know your audience Know who your readers are and only include information that's relevant to them. Tailor your writing to the people with the least expertise. Tip Get a plain language checklist at plainlanguage.gov. Step 2: Keep it simple Keep it simple. Fancy words often confuse more than impress, especially on the web. Choose words that are concrete, familiar, and easy to understand. Avoid jargon and legalese. Whenever possible, use pronouns like "we" and "you," and eliminate acronyms most readers won't understand. Tip Cut every unnecessary word. Extra words bury important information and make it hard for search engines to find the most relevant material. Step 3: Choose the right style Write in an easy-to-understand style. Speak directly to your readers -- using "you" and "we" -- to make the information more personal and relevant. Write in the active voice, not the passive voice, and use simple verb tenses. Step 4: Organize your writing Organize your writing. Put the most important information first, use a consistent layout, and incorporate simple formats. Use descriptive titles and headings that include the keywords your readers are searching for, so search engines can find your content. Tip Include white space in your design to break up blocks of text and avoid the "wall of words" effect. Step 5: Monitor your writing Monitor your writing. If someone can't understand the text the first time they read it, it's not written in plain language. Get feedback from peers and customers, then fix mistakes and make improvements. Step 6: Train your team Everyone, from the top down, should learn to use plain language. Encourage your staff to attend training through Web Manager University, and consider bringing in a plain-language expert to train your team. Improve your site with clear, concise, and well-organized writing to help search engines find your content, ensure people get quick answers, and reduce help-desk questions. Plain and simple. Did You Know? The U.S. Government supports plain language and is working hard to improve the writing on government websites.

Einstein's Theory Of Relativity Made Easy
http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity (Chapter 1): Introduction. The theory of relativity, or simply relativity, encompasses two theories of Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. However, the word "relativity" is sometimes used in reference to Galilean invariance. The term "theory of relativity" was coined by Max Planck in 1908 to emphasize how special relativity (and later, general relativity) uses the principle of relativity. --- Please subscribe to Science & Reason: • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceMagazine • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker --- SPECIAL RELATIVITY Special relativity is a theory of the structure of spacetime. It was introduced in Albert Einstein's 1905 paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" (for the contributions of many other physicists see History of special relativity). Special relativity is based on two postulates which are contradictory in classical mechanics: 1. The laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion relative to one another (principle of relativity), 2. The speed of light in a vacuum is the same for all observers, regardless of their relative motion or of the motion of the source of the light. The resultant theory agrees with experiment better than classical mechanics, e.g. in the Michelson-Morley experiment that supports postulate 2, but also has many surprising consequences. Some of these are: • Relativity of simultaneity: Two events, simultaneous for one observer, may not be simultaneous for another observer if the observers are in relative motion. • Time dilation: Moving clocks are measured to tick more slowly than an observer's "stationary" clock. • Length contraction: Objects are measured to be shortened in the direction that they are moving with respect to the observer. • Mass-energy equivalence: E = mc2, energy and mass are equivalent and transmutable. • Maximum speed is finite: No physical object or message or field line can travel faster than light. The defining feature of special relativity is the replacement of the Galilean transformations of classical mechanics by the Lorentz transformations. (See Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism and introduction to special relativity). --- GENERAL RELATIVITY General relativity is a theory of gravitation developed by Einstein in the years 1907--1915. The development of general relativity began with the equivalence principle, under which the states of accelerated motion and being at rest in a gravitational field (for example when standing on the surface of the Earth) are physically identical. The upshot of this is that free fall is inertial motion; an object in free fall is falling because that is how objects move when there is no force being exerted on them, instead of this being due to the force of gravity as is the case in classical mechanics. This is incompatible with classical mechanics and special relativity because in those theories inertially moving objects cannot accelerate with respect to each other, but objects in free fall do so. To resolve this difficulty Einstein first proposed that spacetime is curved. In 1915, he devised the Einstein field equations which relate the curvature of spacetime with the mass, energy, and momentum within it. Some of the consequences of general relativity are: • Time goes slower in higher gravitational fields. This is called gravitational time dilation. • Orbits precess in a way unexpected in Newton's theory of gravity. (This has been observed in the orbit of Mercury and in binary pulsars). • Rays of light bend in the presence of a gravitational field. • Frame-dragging, in which a rotating mass "drags along" the space time around it. • The Universe is expanding, and the far parts of it are moving away from us faster than the speed of light. Technically, general relativity is a metric theory of gravitation whose defining feature is its use of the Einstein field equations. The solutions of the field equations are metric tensors which define the topology of the spacetime and how objects move inertially. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_relativity --- The Cassiopeia Project - making science simple!
