Cut the Rope | Behind the Scenes

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team partnered with ZeptoLab (the creators of the game) and the specialists at Pixel Lab to bring Cut the Rope to life in a browser. The end result is an authentic translation of the game for the web, showcasing some of the best that HTML5 has to offer: canvas-rendered graphics, browser-based audio and video, CSS3 styling and the personality of WOFF fonts.

You can play the HTML5 version of Cut the Rope at:

Objective-C to JavaScript

In bringing Cut the Rope to a new platform, we wanted to ensure we preserved the unique physics, motion, and personality of the experience. So early on we decided to approach this game as a “port” from the native iOS version (rather than a rewrite).

Who Killed Prolog? « A Programmers Place

Excellent article written in 2010 by Maarten van Emden about the history of Prolog:

and a follow-up:

Lots of interesting comments, too.

The Clojure world seems to be rediscovering Logic Programming. Even if you don't end up falling in love with Prolog, it's worth knowing something about it. Datalog is a subset of Prolog. Erlang is influenced by Prolog.

Using JavaScript libraries in ClojureScript

ClojureScript is also fully capable of interoperation with libraries written in its own host language, JavaScript. Unfortunately, this capability isn't as well-known or frequently used, mostly because ClojureScript leverages the powerful Google Closure Compiler which adds extra complexity to the compilation process.
