If a guy is going to tweet something after a loss, I like Jon Lester’s attitude. “Nothing I can do but wear it, learn from it, and turn the page.”
Albert Einstein quote: “Education is not the learning of facts, but that training of the mind to think.”
I wrote about this in my book, A Survival Guide for New Consultants, that one of the few things I learned in college was how to learn. Everything else — the details that I actually learned at that time — are not important, especially now. But learning how to learn has made all the difference in my career and in my life.
I just found this page on O’Reilly’s website about their “Head First” book series. I’ve been reading a book lately named A Mind for Numbers, which is a book about learning, and the O’Reilly Head First page basically summarizes what’s in that book.
A nice table on how people think and learn.
With Apple's iPad 3 announcement coming tomorrow (March 7, 2012), I took a few minutes last night to reflect on various Jonathan Ive interviews I've read over the years. Here are a few notes on what I learned by reading those interviews.
As a follow-up to my popular first GarageBand tutorial, my second tutorial on creating a podcast with GarageBand shows you how to add introductory music, special effects, delete recordings, and move clips to control gaps in your podcasts, and introduces the concept of ducking.
Whew, getting all the images together for the Tame Swing sample applications is taking a little time and a lot of effort. I hadn't thought about how to organize it, and now that I have a better feel for what I want to do it's just a matter of time.
If you want to see the images of the running applications I do have them on a temporary page here. Please note that this page may change at any time.
Digging through my Mac laptop, I just found the old Tame Swing files laying around. These examples are a little old now, but I think they are great examples of the power of the Java Swing framework. Since they are hard to find on the internet I've gathered them into a little collection here.
Currently I just have the Java source code files there, but give me a couple of days and I'll see what I can do to get some of the examples running, and maybe include some screen shots there as well.
