Intel Joule Dev Board with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core

## Intel Joule Dev Board with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core

Compare to Arduino, Raspberry Pi dev kit, Intel doesn’t seem to be well accepted by the maker communities. But this doesn’t stop Intel from trying making dev board for enthusiasts. Back to the day where Intel has their Intel Galileo Board till credit card size Edison board, by far Intel Joule is the most powerful dev board that Intel have introduced. Intel introduced their latest and yet most powerful dev board Intel Joule in August 2016, and soon will be…

UWP – Harware Back Button, App View Back Button and Webview

## UWP – Harware Back Button, App View Back Button and Webview

To display HTML contents within your Universal Windows Platform applications, Webview is always the best choice. But, when came across while working on the app to navigate the previous page, it became a challenge. By default, if user press on the physical back button on mobile device, virtual back button on desktop (in tablet mode) the app will exit or closed. This brought superb unpleasant experience to users. Of course, developers can always put a set of navigation button to…

Dijkstra’s algorithm

## Dijkstra’s algorithm

To be frank, I hate mathematics, due to the nature of my work now, I got to use all this skillsets. For the last few weeks, I’d been studying a new algorithm to make one of my apps more intelligent, as for the finding, I write this article to explain a simple but powerful algorithm : Dijkstra’s algorithm. Dijkstra’s algorithm can be describe as the father of all modern GPS routing engine. Without it, we will have hard time to…

Introduction Calculate distance, bearing, mid-point between two geographical points is not an easy job. All the formula that use for calculation is based on the basis of a spherical earth and ignoring ellipsoidal effects of the earth. In fact, the earth is actually oblate spheroidal with a radius varying between 6378KM at equatorial to 6357KM at polar. Local radius of curvature from equatorial meridian to polar is 6336KM and 6399KM respectively. With all of this differences, 6371KM is the generally…
