Web API's: Having fun with Google API

Today we'll talk about using Web API's such as one from Google (there are also others such as Amazon, eBay, PayPal, FedEx and more but we'll talk about them later).

I'll post the stuff at the end of the day :-)

PS: Something came up, so we might have to wait.


  1. Hi Tarry,

    Have you read about the feature AJAX used by google's gmail which dynamically update parts of a website without reloading the whole page.


  2. Absolutely, and it rocks! Infact AJAX is clearing up a lot of crap which all the cumbersome frameworks couldn't provide(in terms of speed). Just heard on slashdot (yesterday) that IBM is also giving some of the code to firefox. That will totally rock the IE out of it's chair! :-)

    I will also explore AJAX very soon on the blog.

    BTW: I wanted to respond to a post on your modblog but your "verification" image does not load. I suggest that you ditch modblog, it's neat interface but it needs some robust guys behind it :-) and blogspot has certainly lots of good guys.

  3. Hee, Waar is dat mooie verhaal nou dan?

  4. Ach je moet ff wachten. Gisteren kwamen we achter dat onze vriend(die huid kanker had) niet gaat het redden.
    Behoorlijk heftig voor ons allemaal, vooral voor onze vriendin en de kinderen.

  5. Hi Tarry,

    I know there are some problems with modblog but I think I'll stick around for some more time. Best part I liked about modblog is that the administrator keeps the members updated about what all problems are going on and when they will get fixed.

    And I feel shifting around too much will make me loose my credibility ;)

    PS: As for the verification code its working as I received a coment today . I'm not sure why you got this problem.


  6. Amar,

    I'll try again to see if it works.:-)

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

I won't obviously do …

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
