A few words about history In 50′ and 60′ input data for programs from those years were written on paper tapes or punch cards. Writing code, compiling and testing loop took from a few hours to even few days. It was the beginning of programming we know it. At this time Dijkstra started his discovery. […]

Machine Learning for Dummies with TensorFlow.js TensorFlow is a library for high-performance numerical computation. Installation instructions are available in the official docs. In this article, it’s an […]
Recently, I took part in a hackathon. That was an excellent experience. Working 24 hours on a project you came up with the day before is very exciting. After that event, I realized something that I think I felt earlier – development is the easiest part of building a piece of software. It may sound weird […]
Why do we use indexes? Searching through a row in a sorted file with N length takes O(log2N) comparisons and the same number of reads from a filesystem which is heavy itself. However, tables in databases are not sorted which complicates the operation, Especially, if you have a lot of reads, updates and deletions on them. Writing […]
Some time ago I got my friend’s code to review. Nothing special. After a few minutes of reading, I noticed that he added an empty interface to the definition of some classes. I was ready to write a comment about it but I heard a voice in my head to ask Google first. I’ve discovered […]
Imagine a class which wraps an external API or read large files or parses huge XML files, fetches data from the Internet or something else. There are thousands of situations like that. In many cases, you can want to not parse/download/load some resources every time, right?. A good option is to use a cache but, […]
Naming things is one of the most difficult things in our job. Naming exceptions are even more complicated because exceptions are not regular classes. In this article, I’ll tell you a bit about naming conventions I’ve found and tell pros and cons of them. The ‘Exception’ suffix. To add or not to add There are […]
