Importance of JavaScript {1}

by Michael M
The article I read was interesting I was wondering why javascript was important for a webpage because why would you want to use java when you can use other stuff. But after reading the article it makes sense. When you look at a web page you usually judge a web site really quickly. Does it look professional or not. Is the page cluddered with links or are there things that stick out and grab your attention to the page. When you use Javascript you are pulling the visitors attention to your site because it looks professional and you are able to even plave slideshows on the page. It also doesnt need a server to validate information it can check required fields and give error messgaes if needed. The good thing about JavaScript is it can be placed in script files so it cant be ranked. If it was ranked with the code it lowers the ranking and since it can be placed in a folder it can be ranked higher then other sites. So Javascript is really benifical for someone that is a web developer and wants to have higher ratings and look professional. read more...

A Take on Effiency in Spaciotemporal Databases {Comments Off on A Take on Effiency in Spaciotemporal Databases}

Summary: Spatiotemporal databases area good for applications in space and defense but historically suffer from performance issues. the way that databases work now is we store data about the known world, stuff that does not change or changes infrequently. we have been able to monitor moving objects but not with great effiency. since something is always in motion is has to be updated for every unit of time. planes are always moving and their position changes every second so running querries every second for multiple objects is very resource intensive and databases suffer from it. this type of database uses new techniques in order to efficiently process data. this having one table for every object tracked, frequent data updates and reduced querying. when spatial database software improves then you will see more applications in space and defence. read more...
