MapKit vs Google Places SDK

If you want to allow your users to search for places in your app, you can use one of two frameworks: MapKit or Google Places SDK.

MapKit is the integrated Apple solution.

Google Places SDK is an external framework created by Google.

For this comparison, we will focus on the search functionality, not on the map displays or interactions.


Summary

Summary table.


Installation

MapKit: The iOS framework integrates with MapKit. There is nothing you are required to do before you start using it.

Google Places: Google Places SDK is distributed by Google via Pod. There are two steps for the framework to work.

First, you need to go to The Google Cloud Platform Console and register for the API.

Then, you need to use the Pod system to add the framework to your project. Even if you are not familiar with the Pod system, the process is simple.

Open a terminal and navigate to your project folder:

pod init #Will create the pod file

Open the Pod file and add the line:

pod ‘GooglePlaces’

Finish the installation with:

pod install #to install the library

Winner: MapKit.

Why: MapKit has no registration and no installation.

Seat Reservation With Jquery And Php

Seat Reservation with jQuery

In my Online Bus Reservation System project, I got queries from many people about how to implement seat selection screen effectively. So, I decided to write on it. This post explains how to implement seat booking with jQuery. It can be used in online Bus, flight, hotel, exam support, cinema and ticket booking system.

 

seat reservation jquery

HTML:

<h2> Choose seats by clicking the corresponding seat in the layout below:</h2>

    <div id="holder">

        <ul  id="place">

        </ul>   

    </div>

    <div style="float:left;">

    <ul id="seatDescription">

        <li style="background:url('images/available_seat_img.gif') no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;">Available Seat</li>

        <li style="background:url('images/booked_seat_img.gif') no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;">Booked Seat</li>

        <li style="background:url('images/selected_seat_img.gif') no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;">Selected Seat</li>

    </ul>

    </div>

        <div style="clear:both;width:100%">

        <input type="button" id="btnShowNew" value="Show Selected Seats" />

        <input type="button" id="btnShow" value="Show All" />          

        </div>

We will add seats in “#place” element using javascript.

Settings:

To make it generalize, settings object is used.

var settings = {

               rows: 5,

               cols: 15,

               rowCssPrefix: 'row-',

               colCssPrefix: 'col-',

               seatWidth: 35,

               seatHeight: 35,

               seatCss: 'seat',

               selectedSeatCss: 'selectedSeat',

               selectingSeatCss: 'selectingSeat'

           };

rows: total number of rows of seats.
cols: total number of seats in each row.
rowCssPrefix: will be used to customize row layout using (rowCssPrefix + row number) css class.
colCssPrefix: will be used to customize column using (colCssPrefix + column number) css class.
seatWidth: width of seat.
seatHeight: height of seat.
seatCss: css class of seat.
selectedSeatCss: css class of already booked seats.
selectingSeatCss: css class of selected seats.

Seat Layout:

We will create basic layout of seats.

var init = function (reservedSeat) {

                var str = [], seatNo, className;

                for (i = 0; i < settings.rows; i++) {

                    for (j = 0; j < settings.cols; j++) {

                        seatNo = (i + j * settings.rows + 1);

                        className = settings.seatCss + ' ' + settings.rowCssPrefix + i.toString() + ' ' + settings.colCssPrefix + j.toString();

                        if ($.isArray(reservedSeat) && $.inArray(seatNo, reservedSeat) != -1) {

                            className += ' ' + settings.selectedSeatCss;

                        }

                        str.push('<li class="' + className + '"' +

                                  'style="top:' + (i * settings.seatHeight).toString() + 'px;left:' + (j * settings.seatWidth).toString() + 'px">' +

                                  '<a title="' + seatNo + '">' + seatNo + '</a>' +

                                  '</li>');

                    }

                }

                $('#place').html(str.join(''));

            };

            //case I: Show from starting

            //init();

            //Case II: If already booked

            var bookedSeats = [5, 10, 25];

            init(bookedSeats);

 

init method is used to draw seats layout. Already booked seats array will be passed as argument of this method.

Seat Selection:

?

$('.' + settings.seatCss).click(function () {

if ($(this).hasClass(settings.selectedSeatCss)){

    alert('This seat is already reserved');

}

else{

    $(this).toggleClass(settings.selectingSeatCss);

    }

});

$('#btnShow').click(function () {

    var str = [];

    $.each($('#place li.' + settings.selectedSeatCss + ' a, #place li.'+ settings.selectingSeatCss + ' a'), function (index, value) {

        str.push($(this).attr('title'));

    });

    alert(str.join(','));

})

$('#btnShowNew').click(function () {

    var str = [], item;

    $.each($('#place li.' + settings.selectingSeatCss + ' a'), function (index, value) {

        item = $(this).attr('title');                  

        str.push(item);                  

    });

    alert(str.join(','));

})

When user clicks on available seat, it is selected and second click on same seat will unselect seat. Button “Show All” will show all booked seat numbers and “Show Selected Seats” will show selected seats only.

CSS:

?

#holder{   

height:200px;   

width:550px;

background-color:#F5F5F5;

border:1px solid #A4A4A4;

margin-left:10px;  

}

#place {

position:relative;

margin:7px;

}

#place a{

font-size:0.6em;

}

#place li

{

 list-style: none outside none;

 position: absolute;  

}   

#place li:hover

{

background-color:yellow;     

}

#place .seat{

background:url("images/available_seat_img.gif") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

height:33px;

width:33px;

display:block;  

}

#place .selectedSeat

{

background-image:url("images/booked_seat_img.gif");         

}

#place .selectingSeat

{

background-image:url("images/selected_seat_img.gif");       

}

#place .row-3, #place .row-4{

margin-top:10px;

}

#seatDescription li{

verticle-align:middle;   

list-style: none outside none;

padding-left:35px;

height:35px;

float:left;

}

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

Download Android SDK Manager and SDK Tools

In this tutorial, we’ll read about the Android SDK Manager. We will see what is SDK manager in Android and why and how it is important for Android. So, SDK stands for Software Development Kit, which is a collection of software tools required. SDK basically helps Android to download tools and recent versions of Android. Every time a new Android version is released, along with it is released an SDK corresponding to it. This SDK must be installed by the developers for the devices.
What is SDK Manager?
A Software development kit is a set of tools required for the development of applications for Android. It also ensures that the progress of App development goes as flat as pancakes. We need SDK irrespective of the language we are using. Android SDK comes wrapped up with the Android Studio these days. An Android SDK separates the tools, platforms and other components into packages. These can be downloaded from the SDK Manager.
