Harvard CS50 - probably the best free introductory programming course you can find. What does it offer, and why is it worth it? An excellent introduction to C and Python languages, data allocation, pointers, heap, and many others concepts.
I love podcasts because they can change a lot in our lives. Recently I was analyzing one, and I would like to share something that seems extremely important to me.
Recently I came across the topic of learning and documenting progress. Sharing our development with others can be done in many ways. I want to share my opinion about the advantages I see.
Daily work provides many situations to upset, surprise, and even laugh. I asked my friends who are programmers what annoyed them. Please don’t take it as a complaint, but rather as an opportunity to change.
Remote work, productivity, and time management are important topics. I want to explore the topic of increasing productivity while working from home. Check out my way of better commitment and the opportunity to focus on work duties.
Most of our projects use databases. We often do not realize that incorrectly used functionality may block our applications. Simple changes can save us from unpleasant consequences.
No project is perfect from the start. The real problems are very complicated. While something seems simple and fits perfectly, it may not be. I want to present the most critical and unchanging aspect of each project.
A blog is a great way to learn from your past. You can be your own teacher. Let me show you why I started my blog.
Companies operate in an uncertain environment. Uncertain technology is certainly not something that will interest them. What makes companies decide to use Elixir language?
We have some environmental variables in almost every Elixir application. They change the behavior of the system. They even allow you to reduce variables to be hard-coded somewhere in the depths of the code. I will show how you can use environment variables better.
Based on Erlang VM, Elixir is often limited by a virtual machine’s capabilities or the language itself. One such limitation manifests itself in weak optimization of System.get_env/0 function.
Changing your job or team often means changing the current project. It can be a difficult situation for most, especially at the beginning. The first impression can only be made once. It’s worth doing it right. See what we should do to get noticed at a new project.
Most of us have moved from working in the office to working from home. For most, this was a new and unexpected situation. Reflecting on the topic of remote work, I wanted to prepare a list of activities that will allow us to avoid lack of concentration, constant monotony, and being at work 24 hours a day.
When you start your adventure with Elixir, you may wonder where to get the knowledge. In this article, I have prepared a list of books that may help you become an Elixir programmer or improve your career. This list has been split into different levels of skill.
Most of the projects collect a lot of data. It usually means a heavy loads on the database. What can we do to provide better request handling and lower access times? See how to introduce TimescaleDB to the project using Ecto.
