IntelliJ IDEA is the reason I’m in love with Java again. Yeah, it’s that awesome!!!
I personally dislike the idea of using stored procedures as it mixes the data and logic. The performance gains (!?) is not good enough.
If humans evolved from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys?
Have you ever wonder about this when you was a kid? I did.
Someone made a very nice and simple explaination here. / Huge image alert.
Most notably, it includes a preview version of the new Mac installer with bundled JRE 1.7.
How to use Source Code Pro font with JetBrains IDE
Source Code Pro is a very nice font but the lack of italic variant makes it unusable (out of the box) in any of JetBrains products.
In order to workaround this, you can rather:
Copy Source Code Pro’s ttf fonts to folder
/Library/Java/Home/lib/fonts(OS X Mavericks) according to this comment on GitHub. It works fine for me. Apparently, by doing this, IntelliJ will pick the regular variant and use it where italic is needed. So it’s kinda of the same as the method below 1.
Use a fall-back font that that has italic variant and looks similar to your font of choice . But if that’s the case, why not just use the fall-back font as the primary one.
Don’t use italic font 1.
Pray and wait for someone to submit a pull request of italic variant.
I myself went with option 3 and decided to stick with Panic Sans in IntelliJ IDEA (and Source Code Pro everywhere else) for the time being.
Experiment result is significantly better.
On a side note, I found Julia lang quite a tempting alternative.
Explain MVC like I’m 5.
View: “Hey, controller, the user just told me he wants item 4 deleted.”
Controller: “Hmm, having checked his credentials, he is allowed to do that… Hey, model, I want you to get item 4 and do whatever you do to delete it.”
Model: “Item 4… got it. It’s deleted. Back to you, Controller.”
Controller: “Here, I’ll collect the new set of data. Back to you, view.”
View: “Cool, I’ll show the new set to the user now.”
