Interactive Fiction Programming

Worth a look – I was searching around for different examples of programming lanmguages and came across Inform. Inform is “A Design System for Interactive Fiction Based on Natural Language”.

An example of its implementation is here http://www.inform-fiction.org/I7Downloads/Examples/glass/index.html. And here is a list of others you can have a look at – http://inform7.com/learn/complete-examples.

Before trying to actual program file, you will need to download an interpreter to use it, if you don’t want to commit to entire Inform http://www.logicalshift.demon.co.uk/unix/zoom/

25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

(January 12, 2009) Today in Washington, DC, experts from more than 30 US and international cyber security organizations jointly released the consensus list of the 25 most dangerous programming errors that lead to security bugs and that enable cyber espionage and cyber crime. Shockingly, most of these errors are not well understood by programmers; their avoidance is not widely taught by computer science programs; and their presence is frequently not tested by organizations developing software for sale.

Product Planner – View and Create User Flows, Viral Loops, and More.

A throughly useful site with numerous example workflows.  Useful as there is only so many ways to write a workflow, and better to use tried-and-tested workflows as springboard.  The library is quite extensive and editing tools easy (you actually select workflow steps from list that displays, based on general workflow area you choose).  Good for an overview and demonstration, but not a tool to use to produce professional workflows (i.e. workflows for system design).
