Zend Framework[edit]

changes to introduction[edit source] I am working on this article as there is complete lack of coherence and minimum use of sources. I have added some basic intro lines which are cited from Zend's website introduction page. Following are the various sources that I am planning to add. Please review and if you think that more sources are needed or change some of them.

1. Framework, Z. (2010). Zend Framework.Chicago

2. Supaartagorn, C. (2011). PHP Framework for database management based on MVC pattern. International Journal of Computer Science & Information Technology (IJCSIT), 3(2), 251-258.

3. Lancor, L., & Katha, S. (2013, March). Analyzing PHP frameworks for use in a project-based software engineering course. In Proceeding of the 44th ACM technical symposium on Computer science education (pp. 519-524). ACM.Chicago

4. Paikens, A., & Arnicans, G. (2008). Use of design patterns in PHP-based web application frameworks. Scientific Papers University of Latvia, Computer Science and Information Technologies, 733, 53-71.Chicago

More edits coming soon. Please looking forward to your comments.

The Anatomy of Zend Framework[edit source] I am adding a section which will cover the anatomy of Zend Framework. It will be a detailed and informative based on the literature. Here is one of the document that is promising to further enhance this document.

"Zend Framework" is not the author. It seems to be the title. Is that a book? A website? Take some time to look into Help:Footnotes. Good luck! --Thnidu (talk) 03:57, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Looking for an apropriate link[edit]

Please see Elliott S. Fisher#Early research on health system performance. I'm looking for a relevant article, about the use of large databases to discover patterns, to link in this section. My knowlege of data analysis is rudimentary at best. I found data mining, but it has a hatnote pointing to a variety of other related articles, so now I'm even more lost about selecting an article to link. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 06:51, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

@Dodger67: I'm a stranger here myself, but seeing your question I thought of "big data". Big data § Healthcare has three refs, two of which appear to be online. I don't know if they're what you're looking for, but they might help. Good luck! --Thnidu (talk) 03:43, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Thnidu, I've used it as a "See also" link. If anyone can find something better, more specific, please add a link. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 07:24, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Promotional site[edit]

I ran across Extendable instruction set computer while doing copy-editing. I don't understand the content, but it seems to be largely an advertisement for Advanced Digital Chips Inc. Thought that I'd mention it here in case anyone more knowledgeable wants to take a stab at it. Leschnei (talk) 01:58, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Leschnei, I've proposed it for deletion. See the talk page.
"The article may be deleted if this message remains in place for seven days, i.e., after 07:47, 30 April 2017 (UTC)."*
There's a notice on the original author's talk page. As I noted and detailed on the article's Talk page, besides WP: PROMO it's also WP:COI: the user's page shows that they were an employee when they authored the article.
* Hey, that's less than 5 hours from now. But I hope to be sound asleep then. It'll wait. ;-)
--Thnidu (talk) 03:34, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Thindu, thanks for letting me know. Leschnei (talk) 12:03, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Thnidu, properly spelled this time. Leschnei (talk) 12:05, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
@Leschnei: That's OK, even my wife was never able to get it right. ;-) --Thnidu (talk) 23:07, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

ZoneMinder[edit]

Would someone mind taking a look at ZoneMinder and see if it is notable enough for a stand-alone article? The only two sources cited are WP:UGC and WP:PRIMARY, and these are not WP:SIGCOV needed for a stand-alone article. Perhaps there are better sources which exist, but which just have not yet been added to the article. The article has been around since 2005, and scanning through the history seems toshow it's been pretty much in the same shape since then. Maybe redirecting it to List of free television software is worth consideration? -- Marchjuly (talk) 17:00, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

"Hardware partitioning"[edit]

I noticed Category:Hardware partitioning which in no way is "hardware" partitioning, since it is soft partitioning, and not hard partitioning (ie. hard sectors inherent in hardware design) and it's all harddrive partitioning, and not say, the partitioning of bus capacity or the IBM BIOS hardwired design that forced the 640kB partition in memory or Intel hardwired design and the 64kB segmentation partitioning -- 70.51.200.162 (talk) 06:29, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Computing.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Computing, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Subnetwork Access Protocol Page[edit]

I believe the first few sentences of the Subnetwork Access Protocol page use very poor English grammar. I have left suggestions for corrections on the article's Talk page but I am not an expert on SNAP and would appreciate it if an editor would review the changes before the edits are made so that I do not distort the original author's intended meaning. Nicodemus (talk) 15:07, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Disjoint-set Page[edit]

I've made some major changes to Disjoint-set_data_structure as of this version. I note the article was at a C rating with High importance. Is anyone able to comment on further improvements needed? Finog (talk) 17:30, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

RfC Announce: Wikimedia referrer policy[edit]

In February of 2016 the Wikimedia foundation started sending information to all of the websites we link to that allow the owner of the website (or someone who hacks the website, or law enforcement with a search warrant / subpoena) to figure out what Wikipedia page the user was reading when they clicked on the external link.

The WMF is not bound by Wikipedia RfCs, but we can use an advisory-only RfC to decide what information, if any, we want to send to websites we link to and then put in a request to the WMF. I have posted such an advisory-only RfC, which may be found here:

Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#RfC: Wikimedia referrer policy

Please comment so that we can determine the consensus of the Wikipedia community on this matter. --Guy Macon (talk) 21:45, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Huawei Honor 8 Pro[edit]

Resolved

Over the past few weeks, I've been working with Honor to propose some improvements to the Huawei Honor 8 Pro article. I've submitted an edit request with a suggested infobox and "Specifications" section. I'm looking for a neutral editor to review this simple edit request, which can be found on the article's talk page (I won't edit the article directly because of my COI). I've posted similar requests for help at WikiProject Electronics and WikiProject Telecommunications, but so far no one has replied, so I'm hoping a WikiProject Computing member may be willing to help. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 20:32, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

This edit request has been answered, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 21:51, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

RfC discussion about 2017 cyberattacks on Ukraine at Talk:2017[edit]

2017 cyberattacks on Ukraine is proposed to be added in the "2017" page at Talk:2017#RfC: Events in May and June 2017. Join in discussion. --George Ho (talk) 06:41, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Animation[edit]

I've been adding all citations and doing a little bit of grammar on the animation article, mainly looking around at Google Books. I don't have time to improve this article since I believe it may quickfail at GAN or at FAC. The article had its peer review in 2007, and here's what it looks like after this wasn't reviewed. It shows the lack of referencing as well as cleanup tags. I think the article is very bloated, since it has lot of cruft, balance and lack of focus at least. What I think I can believe is we can possibly format to a better prose without the copyvios, but I don't at moment since I can't think about it. John (Talk) 20:49, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Comments on Smartmatic page needed[edit]

I am requesting for comment on recent queries and edits I posted on the talk page of the article Smartmatic, which is part of this project. I am a journalist researching the topic of voting technology, I came across this article and realized some of the information listed was incorrect. As an editor, I took it upon myself to correct those facts. After making the edits, my edits were quickly reverted by User ZiaLater and he/she discriminated against me because I live in the Philippines. Each edit I made was outlined in the talk page with multiple sources and an explanation of why I made those edits. User ZiaLater has violated multiple Wikipedia guidelines and fails to collaborate on these edits. I am requesting Wikipedia editors apart of the computing project review the edits I made and the comments I posted on the talk page. Carriedelvalle23 (talk) 09:55, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Draft:Explainable AI[edit]

Will someone please review Draft:Explainable AI? It seems to me that the draft doesn't explain clearly what is meant by XAI. The draft does note that it isn't clear what is meant by XAI other than as a neologism. Robert McClenon (talk) 04:29, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

I agree. The article needs some more improvement, especially a discussion on ethics, transparency and accountability (e.g., section Recent developments), clearly citing the need for explainable AI. There are certain typos, but I am not sure whether we can make corrections directly or wait for the review to complete. Jsamwrites (talk) 16:47, 18 July 2017 (UTC).

Nomination of Elijah Daniel for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Elijah Daniel is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Elijah Daniel (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Sagecandor (talk) 21:01, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Control break[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Control break has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unreferenced and is hard to find any evidence of this existing

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Update for the Honor 8 Pro article[edit]

As I mentioned above, I've been working with Honor to propose some improvements to the Huawei Honor 8 Pro article. My requests to add an infobox as well as "Specifications" and "Release" sections have been answered. However, the editor who helped with these requests is less comfortable handling the request to add a "Reception" section, which can be seen at the bottom of Talk:Huawei Honor 8 Pro. Is there a WikiProject Computing member who is willing to review the proposed text and copy over appropriately? I've proposed two paragraphs of specific text and provided markup to make reviewing and updating the article as easy as possible. Thank you! (I've also posted an edit request for the Honor brand article here, if interested.) Inkian Jason (talk) 16:53, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
