This week in Google Developers Live Israel, we showed a live example of a mobile web app that is built in two ways. One we used jQueryMobile as our UI framework and for cases where we need to support IE we used bootstrap. All the code can be found on github. The nice aspect in this real demo is that we used google sheets are our ‘server side’ and since its got a cool way to publish their content to the web as RSS, ATOM, XML, JSON feeds we could work with them from the web/mobile apps. The three main elements we used are: Continue reading
In the past, I’ve showed how to run a NodeJS application in Compute Engine. It’s a good case where you wish to test ideas with App Script but when you move them to ‘production’ – NodeJS is the answer. After the Google Developer Live show we had at the end of August, I got few questions on how to install NodeJS inside Compute Engine instance.
Here are the (easy) steps I did before the show in order to save us time: Continue reading

In the past I’ve wrote this post on the different options you can use with Yahoo Finance API. It is time (4 years later!) to a followup post on how to gain more data but this time with nodeJS. The first idea was to be able to gain information by using different parameters and downloading csv files from Yahoo finance. Something like this GET request will do the magic:
http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=NFLX&f=snd1l1yr and from there you can work with the data.
MediaStream: acquisition of audio and video streams
RTCPeerConnection: communication of audio and video data
RTCDataChannel: communication of arbitrary application data
It was a fun 20min talk with some very impressive demos. Here are few demos that show the power of getUserMedia API: Continue reading
Chromebook For Developers And Hackers
If you are a Linux hacker and/or a developer with a new Chromebook, Chromebox, Pixel or an old laptop with ChromeOS… You might want to have the ability to have a dual-boot option that will let you enjoy the power of your ChromeOS but on the same time be able to boot your laptop with Linux and enjoy C, C++, Java and the fun technologies. It might be hard on other platforms to ‘hack’ them, but since the chromium project is open-source, I guess, they wanted to be hackable by design (e.g. you have a keyboard shortcuts in Pixel that let you enter this mode). Here are the few steps you need to follow in order to enjoy hacking ChromeOS. Continue reading
