Eureka! – 2014 Review

Spending most of my time working for Lane Crawford last year. A very good experience to train up myself especially in Continuous Integration and systems/application monitoring~ Thanks Ronnie for giving me a chance to work with him again and also meet a interesting team in LC.

Other than tech stuff like Puppet, Django and Dashing etc. I think the most important thing i learn is about the goal of adopting Continuous Integration. In that past, i always thought that CI is about automating tedious steps and reduce any prone to human error. But now i realize that other than these practical purposes, CI also helps to promote team work with your colleagues which, for me, is very important in a working environment. And that may be the reason why i love working on CI project so much as i am always looking forward to working in a harmonic and funny team.

All the best in 2015!

Javascript – Determine which event is triggered

Recently i have been working with Dashing which is a great tool to displaying information as a dashboard. I would like to show the dashboard on a big TV. Everything works fine on my Mac but when it is shown on the TV screen, the onclick event is not triggered.

I need to check which event is triggered when i press on the TV screen. The web developer console in Chrome of Firebug in Firefox could help you to determine which event is triggered. For example, the menu bar of Eureka! has the following HTML structure.

<div class="nav-menu">
  <ul>
    <li class="page_item page-item-1630"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/about-eureka/">About</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-8284"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/portfolio/">Portfolio</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-731"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/faz-jewelry/">Faz Jewelry</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-6494"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/linux-commands/">Linux Commands</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-8388"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/reads/">Reads</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-7349"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/syntax-highlight/">Syntax Highlight</a></li>
    <li class="page_item page-item-9773"><a href="https://eureka.ykyuen.info/%e6%97%85%e8%a1%8c%e8%a8%98/">旅行記</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

 

I would like to monitor all the events which are triggered by the first li.page_item element. This can be done by inputing the following command in the console.

2012 in review

Happy Chinese New Year!

Keep getting new freelance opportunities since 2013. Hope it is a good sign. =D

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 730,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 13 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Eureka! – 2012 Review

Happy new year!

2012 is a special year for me because not only i have turned myself from an employee to an freelancer, and also i have implemented my own idea as a real website called QPon. Although this idea is not working at all in HK, it is really an unforgettable experience to me.

On the other hand, i completed the another unforgettable life experience which is the round trip Taiwan cycling in October.

Looking forward to 2013 and wish you all have a fruitful year!

Eureka! – 2011 Review

Happy new year!

In 2011, I have completed the Postaday 2011 campaign. That means i published a blog post every day in 2011. Although i have no plan to keep it in 2012, i would try to keep blogging whenever i have time and i hope those articles could help to solve your problem.

Another big change on me in 2011 is that i have been being unemployed since Oct 2011. haha~ yes, i have quit! I have taken the first step of my dream. Currently i am working on my own project and i hope this first phase could be completed in 2012. I hope i could make some big progress this year.

About Eureka! Blog, it was visited 644,033 times in 2011. There is a significant decline in Dec 2011 because of the change of domain name form ykyuen.wordpress.com to eureka.ykyuen.info. I couldn’t figure out any solution to migrate the indexed content by Google from the old domain name to the new one. Anyway, time could heal.
