  • Giving it away for free isn’t a Business Model | vinova.sg
    the value of their product mostly from the price they set for their product Does a Bentley Continental GT really cost 160 000 to build No but if Bentley sold the Continental for 20 000 there s no way they would be able to change the price to 160 000 and hold the same amount of value in consumers eyes Going from free to paid works the same way Giving a product away for free is an easy way to confuse the concept of people really like it with people really like it and they are willing to pay me for it People should pay for products that have value and creating a business that ignores this is digging your own grave Give them a taste maybe but if they want the whole entrée and if you want to stay in business you had better charge full price Recommendation If you must give some part of your product or service away give them just enough to get them hooked and charge them for every fix thereafter Giving too much away for free masks the commercial viability of your business From Go BIG or Go Home Wil Schroter This entry was posted in Business and tagged Business by Mike Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Name Email Website Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite strike strong Categories Android 8 Business 27 ecommerce 13 Games 9 iPhone 21 Management 2 Projects 24 Rails 21 RFID NFC 5 Team 11 Technologies 89 SEO 2 Testimonials 3 Trends 15 Uncategorized 13 Archives July 2013 4 June 2013 11 March 2013 3 February 2013 1

  • 21 Ruby Tricks You Should Be Using In Your Own Code | vinova.sg
    short multi line if and unless statements queue w hello x world each do word queue word and puts Added to queue unless word length 2 end puts queue inspect Output Added to queue Added to queue hello world 2009 Update Be careful here this one can sting you in the butt if your first expression returns nil even when it works A key example of this is with the puts method which returns nil even after printing the supplied arguments 10 Do something only if the code is being implicitly run not require d This is a very common pattern amongst experienced Ruby developers If you re writing a Ruby script that could be used either as a library OR directly from the command line you can use this trick to determine whether you re running the script directly or not if FILE 0 Do something run tests call a method etc We re direct end 11 Quick mass assignments Mass assignment is something most Ruby developers learn early on but it s amazing how little it s used relative to its terseness a b c d 1 2 3 4 It can come in particularly useful for slurping method arguments that have been bundled into an array with def my method args a b c d args end If you want to get really smart although this is more clever than truly wise def initialize args args keys each name instance variable set name to s args name end 12 Use ranges instead of complex comparisons for numbers No more if x 1000 x 2000 nonsense Instead year 1972 puts case year when 1970 1979 Seventies when 1980 1989 Eighties when 1990 1999 Nineties end 13 Use enumerations to cut down repetitive code Rubyists are often keen to remove repetition often espousing DRY Don t Repeat Yourself You can take this to extremes using Ruby s enumerators to perform similar operations multiple times Consider requiring multiple files for instance w rubygems daemons eventmachine each x require x 14 The Ternary Operator Another trick that s usually learned early on by Ruby developers but rarely in less experienced developers code is the ternary operator The ternary operator is not a fix all but it can sometimes make things tighter particularly in view templates puts x 10 x is ten x is not ten Or an assignment based on the results of a ternary operation LOG sev threshold ENVIRONMENT development Logger DEBUG Logger INFO 15 Nested Ternary Operators It can be asking for trouble but ternary operators can be nested within each other after all they only return objects like everything else qty 1 qty 0 none qty 1 one many Just to illustrate in case of confusion qty 0 none qty 1 one many 16 Fight redundancy with Ruby s logic features I commonly see methods using this sort of pattern def is odd x Wayyyy too long if x 2 0 return false else return true end end

  • Don’t let your programmers design the user interface | vinova.sg
    still pretty cool The developer thinks of new parameters that would make the feature even more powerful and so adds them to the dialog Maybe a few other developers or power users see the dialog and also like the feature But why doesn t it expose this parameter New controls are added Pretty soon the technical team are so used to seeing the dialog the way it is that they become blind to its strange appearance Ship time approaches and the product goes through more thorough testing and the dialog is discovered but it is too late to be heavily re worked Instead it is given a cursory spruce up Some people are naturally gifted at user interface design They feel physically sick about adding a button that clutters the interface or messes up the user s workflow Make sure you have a gifted UI designer on your team whether or not he or she doubles up as a different role including programmer It will make a world of difference when you get your first users the difference between a lukewarm response and Wow it s great I love it This entry was posted in Technologies by Mike Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Name Email Website Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite strike strong Categories Android 8 Business 27 ecommerce 13 Games 9 iPhone 21 Management 2 Projects 24 Rails 21 RFID NFC 5 Team 11 Technologies 89 SEO 2 Testimonials 3 Trends 15 Uncategorized 13 Archives July 2013 4 June 2013 11 March 2013 3 February 2013 1 October 2012 1 September 2012 5 August 2012 6 June
