Fashion Incubator » Blog Archive » What is a tech pack?

Fashion Incubator » Blog Archive » What is a tech pack?: "I’m in the process of planning a series of articles on technical specification packages, in part to explain some of the features of the new PDM Style File software from Patternworks but it should apply across the board. Using the example of Style File makes it easy to do this because of the many different types of reports it will generate -depending on the phase of planning, testing and production. I don’t have another PDM package so I’d be stuck cobbling spreadsheets together. Since spec or tech packs can be so complex, I’d like to break it up into easier to digest chunks. Likewise, every company has different needs. I’m trying to get a cross section of ideas to determine what some/many/most users would or could use for any given phase. Here is an example from the design phase (only), your process may vary.

Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre.

JavaScript, 5 ways to call a function - Sergio Pereira - Devlicio.us - Just the Tasty Bits

JavaScript, 5 ways to call a function - Sergio Pereira - Devlicio.us - Just the Tasty Bits: "Time after time I find JavaScript code that has bugs caused by lack of proper understanding of how functions work in JavaScript (a lot of that code has been written by me, by the way.) JavaScript has functional programming characteristics, and that can get in our way until we decide to face and learn it.

Function.apply and Function.call in JavaScript

Function.apply and Function.call in JavaScript: "Every function in JavaScript has a number of attached methods, including toString(), call(), and apply(). If it sounds odd to you that a function might have its own methods - then remember that every function in JavaScript is an object."

Backbone.js

Backbone.js: "Binding "this"
Perhaps the single most common JavaScript "gotcha" is the fact that when you pass a function as a callback, its value for this is lost. With Backbone, when dealing with events and callbacks, you'll often find it useful to rely on _.bind and _.bindAll from Underscore.js."

'via Blog this'

Building Classification Models: ID3 and C4.5

Building Classification Models: ID3 and C4.5: "ID3 and C4.5 are algorithms introduced by Quinlan for inducing Classification Models, also called Decision Trees, from data.
We are given a set of records. Each record has the same structure, consisting of a number of attribute/value pairs. One of these attributes represents the category of the record. The problem is to determine a decision tree that on the basis of answers to questions about the non-category attributes predicts correctly the value of the category attribute. Usually the category attribute takes only the values {true, false}, or {success, failure}, or something equivalent. In any case, one of its values will mean failure.

The decision trees generated by C4.5 can be used for classification, and for this reason, C4.5 is often referred to as a statistical classifier."

ScienceDirect - Decision Support Systems : Sales forecasting using extreme learning machine with applications in fashion retailing

ScienceDirect - Decision Support Systems : Sales forecasting using extreme learning machine with applications in fashion retailing: "Sales forecasting is a challenging problem owing to the volatility of demand which depends on many factors. This is especially prominent in fashion retailing where a versatile sales forecasting system is crucial. This study applies a novel neural network technique called extreme learning machine (ELM) to investigate the relationship between sales amount and some significant factors which affect demand (such as design factors). Performances of our models are evaluated by using real data from a fashion retailer in Hong Kong. The experimental results demonstrate that our proposed methods outperform several sales forecasting methods which are based on backpropagation neural networks."

2012 Chinese New Year, 2012 Chinese Horoscope, 2012 Chinese Astrology, Year of the Dragon

2012 Chinese New Year, 2012 Chinese Horoscope, 2012 Chinese Astrology, Year of the Dragon: "The first day of the 2012 Chinese New Year is on January 23, 2012 in China's time zone. This day is a new moon day, and is the first day of the first Chinese lunar month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar system. The exact new moon time is at 15:40 on 23-Jan-12 in China's time zone.

The Year 2012 is the 4709th Chinese year. The Chinese believe that the first king of China was the Yellow King (he was not the first emperor of China). The Yellow King became king in 2697 B.C., therefore China will enter the 4709th year on January 23, 2012. Also, the Chinese Year uses the cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting systems and the Black Water Dragon is the 28th Stem-Branch in the cycle. Since (60 *78) + 29 = 4709, therefore 2012 is the Water Dragon year, which is the 4709th Chinese Year.

Quick Left | Leveraging Deferreds in Backbone.js

Quick Left | Leveraging Deferreds in Backbone.js: ""[Deferred objects are] chainable utility object[s] that can register multiple callbacks into callback queues, invoke callback queues, and relay the success or failure state of any synchronous or asynchronous function."
Basically, if you have access to a deferred object, you can reliably bind callback functions to the state of a function now and forever, regardless of how or when that function is "resolved."
Now whats really cool is that jQuery AJAX functions return a Deferred object. This is what lets you chain callbacks directly off of AJAX methods, but it's even better when you can leverage that returned value from a completely different scope. This becomes a really important behavior in a Backbone app, but only if you know how to take advantage of it."

How many members does the site have and how much do they spend?
Our goal was to achieve 100,00 members by end of 2011 which we beat–we’re a little bit over that. We launched back in February with just a few members and we’ll continue to focus on growing awareness and building a base of customers that shops on the site. Throughout the year average transaction is about $1,400 which is unheard of for online. During fashion month the average transaction goes up because people buy more pieces at a time and the average price point is higher during fashion week as RTW tends to be more expensive than the shoes and accessories we sell between seasons."

In our initialize function we are going to bind a function call everytime we change the value of our attribute. In this case if the name of our “person” changes we will alert their new name."

Backbone.js

Backbone.js: "When working on a web application that involves a lot of JavaScript, one of the first things you learn is to stop tying your data to the DOM. It's all too easy to create JavaScript applications that end up as tangled piles of jQuery selectors and callbacks, all trying frantically to keep data in sync between the HTML UI, your JavaScript logic, and the database on your server. For rich client-side applications, a more structured approach is often helpful.

Building JavaScript Web Apps With MVC & Spine.js

Building JavaScript Web Apps With MVC & Spine.js: "So, what is Spine.js?

Spine is a lightweight framework that provides an MVC structure to your JavaScript applications with a focus on providing a more traditional literal inheritence model through classes and extension. It's based in many ways on Backbone's API so developers who have used Backbone before may find getting started a little easier than expected (however see the notes below for some fundamental differences). Spine also comes with baked in support for HTML5 localStorage and asynchronous server communication."

How does HTTP Adaptive Bitrate Streaming work on the iPhone? - Stack Overflow

How does HTTP Adaptive Bitrate Streaming work on the iPhone? - Stack Overflow: "Apple has included HTTP Adaptive Bitrate Streaming in the iPhone OS 3.0, in particular Safari handles this automatically.

I'd like to play with this in a low cost manner, but I expect it'll require a custom HTTP server in the worst case, and interesting PHP/etc scripting in the best case.

But first I need to know what the protocol differences or standard is. HTTP is reasonably simple as a protocol, but adaptive bitrate means the file size is different, the chunk locations are different at different bitrates, etc. For instance, does the client tell the server anything special about the stream as it's downloading, or is it all handled on the server side?"

Fabric.js: An Interactive Object Model and SVG Parser for the Canvas Element - Badass JavaScript: "Fabric.js started as a foundation for design editor on printio.ru — interactive online store with ability to create your own designs. The idea was to create Javascript-based editor, which would make it easy to manipulate vector shapes and images on T-Shirts. Since performance was one of the most critical requirements, we chose canvas over SVG. While SVG is excellent with static shapes, it’s not as performant as canvas when it comes to dynamic manipulation of objects (movement, scaling, rotation, etc.). Fabric.js was heavily inspired by Ernest Delgado’s canvas experiment. In fact, code from Ernest’s experiment was the foundation of an entire framework. Later, Fabric.js grew into a collection of distinct object types and got an SVG-to-canvas parser."

The WebSocket API is being standardized by the W3C, and the WebSocket protocol has been standardized by the IETF as RFC 6455.[1] Because ordinary TCP connections to port numbers other than 80 are frequently blocked by administrators outside of home environments, it can be used as a way to overcome these restrictions and provide similar functionality with some additional protocol overhead while multiplexing several WebSocket services over a single TCP port.

So this was a tricky situation to overcome but here are our exact workings. We found that it wasn't performance related issues with the iphone due to the number of sprites, what was happening was the browser was crashing due to loading and animating the images at the same time.

So to stop this from happening we had to preload our images using a plugin for jQuery which evidently didn't work very well.

In the end we wrote a custom function to write the images to the DOM and then to attach that to a div via the jQuery .css() function."

Writing Node.js Native Extensions | Cloudkick, manage servers better: "Hello World, from a C++ Extension

To start with a C++ extension, you'll need everything you needed to compile Node.js, and note that I'm working with Node.js 0.2.0. Everything here should be compatible for all future 0.2.x versions. Once you have Node installed however, you shouldn't need anything extra for these to compile and work."

JavaScript Sprite Animation Using jQuery » SitePoint: "2) Setting up some useful variables

We have a handful of numbers that we’ll need to use several times, so it makes sense to store them in variables. That means we’ll only need to update our script in two places if we decide to change our page size later. The variable names do a fairly good job of describing what they are:

view plainprint?
/* Page sizes*/  
var $pageheight = 189; // our page height  
var $pagewidth = 146; // our page width  
var $pageYpos = 0;  // current Y position of our bg-image  "
