Santa needs your help.

A short recap on polyfills

Maybe you’ve heard of Fetch? The promise-based Web API for making network requests in the browser, and a favourite amongst developers. If you paste fetch(‘https://www.google.com’) into the Chrome DevTools console and run it you can take a closer look at how it works. Sadly, you can’t do the same in Internet Explorer. It won’t work.

Tesla Sentry with AWS Rekognition

Teslas are the most technologically advanced cars on the market right now. One interesting feature is called Sentry Mode, it's a built-in security system that uses 4 (out of 8) cameras to continuously monitoring the surroundings of the car. Unfortunately, there is no way to watch the videos remotely, they have to be stored on a USB drive that’s plugged into the car. That’s very impractical, it takes only a few days before there are too many videos and you end up just ignoring them. In this post, I want to describe how I’m trying to use video content analysis to determine if there is a person on any video and then send a notification to the owner. I’m using Azure for archiving the videos and AWS to process them.
