4D BLOGS - AUGUST, 2011

The consumer SSD space is evolving at quite a rapid pace, so I've decided it might be useful to the 4D community to try to do a regular series of updates as I come across interesting SDD news items. I'm calling it the "4D SSD Watch". I'm also a huge advocate for the switch to flash storage, so I do this not because I think I'm an expert but, rather, because I'm trying to keep a close eye on this stuff. For this update I'm looking at three important items:

 

  • SanDisk, purveyor of all things flash (except SSD's until now) has made a rather strong entry into the consumer SSD market.
  • Intel has discovered a non-fixable flaw with their series 520 SSD's and is offering a full refund on the drives.
  • Apple continues its proprietary ways with yet another non-starndard SSD configuration in the new MacBook Pro.

At first, I had the idea to name this article "If you seek me, you will get me." But it was a bit too easy. And, after all, not that funny (and I wanted a funny title). I looked at something else and found "Seek me, get me". But… removing a couple of words doesn't make it any more funny. That's why I finally decided upon a title that is not funny. It was a painful decision, but somebody had to make it and I was alone in my head at this time. So, "Query and Find" came up to my mind. Hmm. No. Still not working. Even worse: One could think I'm going to talk about the database engine, while I'm actually talking about the "Find in Design" functionality.

Welcome to my first 4D Blog post! I don't know who gave me permission to do this but they must be crazy (right Michel?!)

 

I'm hoping to make my 4D Blog less of a marketing outlet and more of a personal journal (as Blogs are supposed to be). Most importantly my plan is to post information relevent to 4D developers. We have a renewed mandate to foster a community amoung the 4D faithful (and maybe get a few more to join the fold!)

 

With that in mind...

Over 300 attendees from the JavaScript and business app development community attended Wakanday/JS.everywhere() as a follow-on to 4D Summit in Boston last year, and it was so successful, we’ve given JS.everywhere() its own day. The now two-day event will take place October 26-27, 2012 in the heart of Silicon Valley, giving attendees a chance to immerse themselves in presentations on both JavaScript for enterprise applications and 4D’s new JavaScript development platform.
