    Crap programmers write crap code, either in python or in C.
    Hey, as I said I'm not a very fan of python and I think it is not reasonable to use such kind of language for large projects, but...

    It's a regional television in Northern Italy, in Sudtirol.
    My company produces short touristic reportages about the region. In addition to the DVB-T channel, we sell subcriptions to Hotels. They can...

    Your opinion is extremely biased. Python is perfect for glue code. CPU-intensive tasks can be done using external C libraries or native C libraries. External C libraries are standard .so (or .dll, if...

    Python is a good choice when you don't need performance. But may be also a good choice when you NEED performance, because it can be interfaced with dynamic libraries written in compiled languages. I...

    Is it the videocore IV own realtime operating system?
  6. The less sucking SoCs about linux support indeed...

    The less sucking SoCs about linux support indeed are raspberry pi broadcom SoCs. AmLogic deliberately has an open source linux support site, so I tend to prefer these two options instead of AllWinner...

    Is really allwinner open source linux friendly?

    AFAIK they are pretty closed, the linux-sunxi project is based on reverse engineering and allwinner video encoding/decoding hardware unit is totally...

    It is more than two years I'm working full-time on PHP and I subscribe and quote every single line of this post, expecially that one relating to which feature to use and which to steer away.

    It is worse if global keyword wouldn't exist, trust me. It explicitly tells to people looking into the function that the variable is global. Also it is useful to know that a variable is global when...

    That's because PHP is a template language. The $ in front of variables is a fast way to include variables inside string definition without doing string concatenation:

    "Hello I am $myname"

    ARM architectures have a nomenclature that may be a bit confusing:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture#Cores

    Raspberry Pi (bcm2835 soc) is an ARM11 architecture with an ARMv6...

    In my opinion, one of the most interesting things is the community and the efforts to document the features of the hardware.
    No boards and SoCs have documentation like RPi, now even drivers are open...

    Premise: for large cooperative project I intend large corporative project where 10 or more developers work on it, and not some open source project living on github where x people sometimes commit...

    You can do unit tests, coverage analysis and regression tests for C and Java too. I don't see the point.
  15. Isn't that the job of an opcode cache? APC...

    Isn't that the job of an opcode cache?
    APC module is pretty standard and stable from long time now and does exactly that: avoid the recompilation of the script on each request. Now there's the new...

    I'd go with latest 3.16 kernel and stay with default mesa found in the distro. In case there would still be problems, you may update mesa to latest version. However AFAIK your card should be using...
  17. Because r270x has a different architecture than...

    Because r270x has a different architecture than r290 parts. Probably it has a different ALU/TMU/memory timings/memory bus combination that let it perform better in 2D than r290 parts. We should also...

    The problem with multiprocessing it that spawning processes and sharing objects between them is costly, and it is the main reason threads exists: don't fork the whole process, but create a new...

    Not necessarily. PHP, for example, prevents wrong behavior having different operators for sum (+) and string concatenation (.). You can sum two strings and you will obtain the sum of the numbers,...

    Mmmh, I don't share the same conclusion. The article never talks about a general purpose PHP, and actually I share many of the ideas that guy talks about. Killing ancient concepts, tidying up the...
