Design patterns notes (and Java examples)

As I've been getting back into Java programming lately, I've been taking a little time each night to read about design patterns, and make notes about each design pattern, especially as it relates to the Java programming language.

Here then are my abridged notes about the most common design patterns, including Java examples as I was able to think of them.

Creational Patterns

Factory Pattern

Mac Ruby as an AppleScript and Objective C replacement

Over the last few weeks I've been digging into Ruby programming on the Mac, specifically looking at ways to (a) use Ruby instead of AppleScript, and (b) use Ruby to create 'native' Mac OS X applications. Here's some information on what I've found.

Arduino programming project

During the last few weeks I've gone down a very different road with my computer programming business here in Alaska's Mat-Su Valley. Thanks to my sisters, I'm currently programming something called an "Arduino board", which is essentially a small, inexpensive computer system you can wire together and then program.

Though it's small and inexpensive, the Arduino is an entire computer system, and with a breadboard and a huge selection of sensors and other electronics you can connect to the main processor, you can build many, many types of custom computer systems with an Arduino.

Berries at Hatcher Pass, Alaska

Totally unrelated to computer programming, but completely related to living in Alaska, I went up to Hatcher Pass today for a long hike. Some friends mentioned that berry-picking at Hatcher Pass is something of a tradition this time of year, so I did my best to find some fresh berries.
