The World Wide Web was Designed to Share Knowledge

Some of the 275+ pages on this website cover subjects that can be found elsewhere on the Internet. However, this site believes that information should be clear and easy to understand. After all the World Wide Web (WWW) was designed to share knowledge easily. The aim of the articles published on Tek Eye is to share knowledge with clarity. The tutorials and articles on technology should be simple to understand and make you smile when finished. The ultimate aim of this website is to go beyond the usual bland corporate sites that litter the Internet, becoming a computer technology resource that people and organisations find useful. Take a look at the Tek Eye full site Index for a list of all the available articles, or choose from an articles topic shown on the right.

Use the KISS Principle to Build Software

Tek Eye is a big believer in the keep it simple stupid (KISS) principle. When developing software avoid heavyweight, bloated, over engineered, propriety frameworks. Otherwise developers spend more time working around framework nuances than fixing the problem for which they were hired. Bloated propriety frameworks will eat money over the lifetime of a software product. If architects can design buildings following a less is more principle, then developers can write lean software. The Unix philosophy must be used for the best modern agile software development. As an example of KISS the core CMS code that runs this website is less than 40K of PHP, and does not use a database.

Tek the One Eyed Robot

At Tek Eye the programming of Android devices is one of our topics, even contributing to the O'Reilly Android Cookbook. Android has a little green robot as a mascot so it was thought a nice friendly robot to keep him company would be a good mascot for Tek Eye. Here is Tek the Blue One-Eyed Robot:

A New Domain

Originally Tek Eye resided at the domain tekeye.biz and peaked at 50,000 visitors a month. Then along came the .uk top-level domain. Being UK based, and .biz has never sounded professional enough, the opportunity to change the domain name has been grabbed. So here is TekEye.UK, a great resource for articles on computing, technology, software development and Android programming.
