Fun with Web Audio, a browser drum kit.
The Web Audio API. The Web Audio API is a new way of working with audio on the web. It provides a way to playback pre-recorded audio, synthesise arbitrary new sounds and control the precise moment of sound generation accurately and reliably, irrespective of what else is happening in your ...

Interesting article on the 18F GSA blog about build versus purchase and why they wrote a light weight time system called Tock.  I hope they do a follow up article in a about 6 months and again a year or so later.  They are off to a good start but keeping things simple and maintainable is tough. I wish them the best.
I recently spent time helping with one of our internal frustrations — how members of 18F track how we spend our time. We opted roll out our own simple solution using Django, called Tock.

What happens when you let "grown ups" who like computer tech get access to a nice set of Legos :-)  They build data centers.
I am at a VMware R&D offsite this week and I saw an awesome thing I wanted to share (unfortunately the only thing I can share). Our architecture team had a booth which displayed a datacenter cr...

Interesting editor based on io.js (a fork of NodeJS) and the web stack (like Brackets). Good to see interesting experimentation in this space.
At GitHub, we’re building the text editor we’ve always wanted: hackable to the core, but approachable on the first day without ever touching a config file. We can’t wait to see what you build with it.

This could be a really fun approach to building interesting Raspberry Pi/Aurduino based music related devices.
We came across the excellent Modulo on Kickstarter recently. Modulo is a “modular solution for building powerful electronic devices” and consists of a cluster of smart modules such as sensors, motor drivers and displays that slide into a solid base unit. It abstracts all the jumbliness of building electronics from scratch and lets you concentrate on …

Ok, this is serious cool geeky stuff.  Outerspace flight ready pi case!
You can’t just take a Raspberry Pi into space in your pocket or an old soft scoop ice cream tub. It’s too spiky for one thing. What you need is a block of aluminium the size of your head and some mad milling skills to make the best Pi case ever. Dave Honess explains: The …

Nice article on paired programming from 18F.
At 18F, we frequently use pair programming, a technique where two developers work together on one screen. We asked two developers at 18F how they pair program and why they find it useful.
