3 Projects for Teaching Numerical Linear Algebra

In a recent conversation, I realized that I had forgotten to post some of numerical linear algebra (NLA) projects that I had created in graduate school. These projects, along with a few others that I have already published in this blog, can help us appreciate the theories and applications of NLA.

Animation and Predictable Data Loading in Ember

At EmberConf 2019, I had the chance to meet and learn from many Ember developers around the globe. I’m excited about Ember Octane, a new edition built with developer productivity and app performance in mind. It’s in beta and readying for release. I think there’s no better time to learn and use Ember.

This tutorial covers how to load complex data in a predictable manner and how to add animation to liven up your site. A hearty thanks goes to Sam Selikoff and Ryan Toronto, whose teaching at the conference I’m heavily basing mine on. They had taken time to build a polished demo app; I was inspired to follow their footsteps.

tl;dr. Use Ember Animated and Ember Data Storefront today!

Unfortunately, they can no longer find the codepoints on the official website, only the icon names. To make matters worse, the codepoints file on Google’s repo hasn’t been updated to show the new icons.
