Twitter vs. Mastodon

Some context on Mastodon, after a couple weeks of exploring it – I’m sure I’m missing a lot, but this is my understanding of the tech, so far. I’ve been an avid user of Twitter so most of my knowledge comes by comparing Mastodon to Twitter. You can follow me on Mastodon here: https://mastodon.social/@jeresig Your main “timeline” This is the main...

10th Anniversary of jQuery

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of jQuery. I announced it back at BarCamp NYC 2006 when I was still in college. It’s incredible to think of how far it’s come and just how many people have contributed to its success. To them I am forever grateful, thank you. Last year I wrote up an annotated version of the original jQuery release in...

Building an Art History Database Using Computer Vision

Since the fall of 2013 I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with the Frick Art Reference Library Photoarchive, a venerable art history research institution here in New York City. We’ve been especially interested in finding ways of applying computer vision technology to improve art history research. Art history photo archives are an interesting tool...

Using Waifu2x to Upscale Japanese Prints

In my spare time I’ve been working on a database of Japanese prints for a little over 3.5 years now. I’m fully aware that I’ve never actually written about this, personally very important, project on my blog — until now. Unfortunately this isn’t a post explaining that project. I do still hope to write more about the intricacies of it, some day, but...

Annotated Version of the Original jQuery Release

Recently I was prompted by Daniel Lamb to try and find old versions of jQuery for his jQuery Archive project. Thankfully I was able to find one in the Internet Archive from just a couple weeks after its release, in January 2006. I then took that opportunity to put that code online and I used the new Genius annotation beta to mark it up with a bunch...

Low-cost .com Domains with Whois Privacy

In an effort to be more privacy conscious I’ve been looking to transition to having Domain Privacy enabled on all the domains that I own. As it turns out many domain registrars, including my current one, charge an additional fee for this service. In an effort to save some money I did a price comparison at some of the most popular domain registrars and...

Write Code Every Day

Last fall work on my coding side projects came to a head: I wasn’t making adequate progress and I couldn’t find a way to get more done without sacrificing my ability to do effective work at Khan Academy. There were a few major problems with how I was working on my side projects. I was primarily working on them during the weekends and sometimes in the...

Project-based Interviews

First, some background: I highly recommend that you read the following two blog posts: by Ashe Dryden: The Ethics of Unpaid Labor and the OSS Community and by James Coglan: Why Github is not your CV. They make some fantastic points and communicate the issues surrounding “Using Github as your CV”. Both of these were largely provoked by this tweet by...

Node.js Stream Playground

This summer I had the opportunity to attend NodeConf and it was a fantastic experience. I really appreciated how every session was a hands-on coding session: I felt like I walked away knowing how to put a bunch of advice directly into practice. One of my favorite sessions was the one run by James Halliday and Max Ogden exploring Node streams. Specifically...

Gittip at Khan Academy

For a while now I’ve been a huge fan of Gittip. I think they’ve created one of the most interesting models for funding Open Source development. One of the missing pieces, for most Open Source developers, is having consistent, reliable, income backing your development. Some developers are sponsored by their work place, others have a job but do Open Source...
