While playing about with Hyperlapse yesterday, I wondered how it worked. Instagram were one step ahead of me and have released an informative blog post about the technology with some useful videos.
It comes with a great quote from Tom Cargill at Bell Labs which I had never heard before:
The first 90 percent of the code accounts for the first 90 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the code accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time.
As a programmer, I can definitely see the humour in this.
