Cryptography Tutorial

Bret M. Larsen

04.03.2017

I would like to know more about Cryptography in general.

There are a bunch of thing people are using like https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/ and I don't know how to use them or how to implement such things using Cryptography algorithms, like AES.

  • How to implement an app with a good Cryptography?
  • Should I use VeraCrypt or similar?

A week of content about Cryptography in general and algorithms would be good!

Thanks!

Glimmer and TypeScript

Benjamin Rosas

04.06.2017

Summary

A course on the newly unveiled GlimmerJS. Glimmer is a React-like DOM-rendering engine in which components are written in TypeScript. Glimmer emerged from the Ember.js framework and will play a large role in Ember's future.

Motivation

React has (rightfully) received a lot of focus. It is fast, lightweight, flexible and very popular. However there are also a million books and videos and courses on React out in the world. Glimmer is the kind of thing (like Elm and Phoenix) that is cutting-edge and in line with the kind of unique material offered at DailyDrip. A Glimmer course can also be an excuse to introduce TypeScript (a progressively typed superset of JavaScript from Microsoft that is gaining a lot of attention (eg. see Angular 2.0)).

Drawbacks

  • Glimmer is super new and likely going to change quickly over the next year or two.
  • Glimmer is not very popular (yet) and so the demand for and recognition of its virtues may be muted.
  • TypeScript may be a turn-off by those who prefer either the non-typed JavaScript, or the strong-typed Elm.

Alternatives

  • Just teach Ember (status quo).
  • Dedicated TypeScript material instead of clumping it with Glimmer.
  • Wait and see where Glimmer is going before committing resources to it.

Neural Networks with Elixir

Eric Steen

Elixir / Erlang are supposed ideal tools for building neural nets. Would be nice to see a basic net built for AI practitioners.

Because learning it by yourself is sort of like jumping in a pool and having to swim to arms you have to attach to your body before you can learn to swim.

JavaScript for the R user

kent russell

Summary

Responses to this tweet indicate some interest in some material specifically targetting JavaScript/HTML/CSS for the R user. Some knowledge of JavaScript in R is becoming requisite to fulfill the last mile (10%) with Shiny and htmlwidgets. While a book might be useful for some, the DailyDrip method of education with bite-size chunks would seem to be the perfect mechanism for picking up the skills demanded for effective R integration with JavaScript/HTML/CSS.

The haskellbook.com has taken a great approach to introducing this intimidating language, but it'd be great to have a Daily Drip on the topic to get small chunks of exposure.
