The history of programming already counts seven decades, and diverse languages came and went. Each of them was created for some purpose, all of them aimed to solve the problems of technologies from the previous generation. Check out the brief history of six programming languages and their original purposes, and where the development has led them.
One of the oldest programming languages out there is Fortran (FORmula TRANslation). It was used by NASA, created by IBM, and if you are not a stranger to data science, you would probably know the prominent scientific packages that have been in development for…
Expectation and resource management can be very exhausting, and team members don’t seem to help! Frontend vs. backend holy wars demotivate the team, and there is seemingly no common base. Let’s decipher the secret laws and mechanics of the software development delivery chain.
Similar to a triangle of expectation, I came up with a triangle of software development:
Learning from your own mistakes is a big deal. You give your best, but your software has more and more bugs, the app is slow, your devs give their best, but nothing is changing. How come?
Check out the story of an imaginable car store losing its market share because of the quality degradation from the developer's point of view and how playing by the rules can be very beneficial in IT.
One of the weaknesses of REST architecture is its inflexible data model. In comparison to RPC, where every client can request the methods of the server API as…
Since the very beginning of my career, I see the position descriptions like “Fullstack developer this” or “Fullstack developer that.” Speaking a language doesn’t mean understanding anything written in it. Here is what I think about it, with many pictures too!
A friend working for a bank told me once desperately: “Why do we pay so much for the IBAN parser? 300 Euro per month? I can’t believe why is this so expensive”. All I had to answer: “I can do it for 50 :D”. He confirmed he would take the deal, and I started researching. Well, deals with business people you know.
Millennials and zoomers oppose boomers fiercely on the vast landscapes of The Internet, and the generation gap was never so big.
Me, (barely) the Jeanne d’Arc of the les milléniaux: end the boomtatership! Read why. In this part: boomers’ place in the food chain.
In the previous article, we talked about boomers and us. Now let’s find out how boomers caused the climate change crisis and what we can do about it.
The main reason for climate change is the greenhouse effect: some of the atmosphere's gases reflect the heat, which increases its temperature. Scientists started researching this effect already in the 17th century, trying to systemize and describe the information they gathered from the fossils, landmarks, and atmospheric measurements. Even Joseph Fourier put his 5 cents in that!
The first scientific report on the greenhouse effect and possible atmosphere warming was published at…
The pandemic has changed our lives. And it will change even more! The way we work, entertain or interact. Is it our last chance to balance our relationship with nature?
Coronavirus, a tiny particle, a couple of hundreds of nanometers in size, has hit the illusion of predictability of our lives so hard that we won’t be finished with the aftermath for decades, if not centuries. Is it the last warning?
The coronavirus has sharpened the difference between the seeming and the genuine. …
