  • Busy week

    I am quite busy this week as my students are going for CodeXtreme Competition. Today we attend the Mystery Challenge session which is one of the key requirements for the competition. So, we need to prepare a business plan and define a clear problem statement. I am quietly confident about 2 teams which I believe will have great chances of getting a prize. Also, there are only 52 teams this year. Greater chances! Last year there are 100+ teams.

    I have also finalize the details for my sharing session presentation with Reveal.js....

  • Create a simple Highcharts bar chart with real time update

    I am a fan of Jack Black. However, I am so disappointed in this movie. I was hoping to see a comedy with lots of laughter. Instead, I am treated with a long, boring documentary. There are some meanings and values in the movie. However, it fails to entertain me.

    Ice Age 4: Continental Drift

    This is an enjoyable show which is not as good as the previous 3 prequels. But it is decent, light hearted and suitable for all ages.

  • Remote Controller for Reveal.js Presentation

    I am going to have a presentation soon. After trying Reveal.js and Impress.js, I decide to give Reveal.js a try. In the process, I also quickly write up a simple remote controller for the slides with Node.js and socket.io :)

    Now, I can use my iphone as the presentation remote control by opening up the controller page as above.

    Below is the code if somebody is interested:
