High Performance JavaScript with Trevor Norris

3 years ago
Back in my early days web pages were optimized, for performance reasons, to reduce the number of client to server requests.

Gaussian Blur – Image Processing Algorithm

3 years ago
The gaussian blur algorithm is one of the most widely used blurring algorithms. It is accomplished by applying a convolution kernel to every pixel of an image, and averaging each value of each color channel of each pixel with the corresponding elements of the convolution matrix. You can also weigh the kernel so that each […]
