Unfortunately writing such software is one of the most difficult things we know and pretty hard to achieve without proper tools. Luckily, there is the multiparadigm .NET language called F# with amazing features like pattern matching, algebraic data types and omnipresent immutability.

Finding the Right Rest Framework to Run Your Jvm Based Micro Service

We are often inclined to pick the tools we know best.
This is especially true for professional software development. We can deliver fast and at the same time guarantee high quality outcome if we eliminate risk. Not taking a risk also means not being innovative. Not being innovative means bringing new ideas and concepts is lost.

Changing the Public Perception of Games and Game Creators

After 5 years as Executive Director of the IGDA and as an award-winning industry advocate, Kate Edwards has gained a unique perspective on attitudes towards games and game developers. Despite being a massive socio-economic force, games still struggle to gain respect as a creative art form and as leaders in evolving entertainment. Game creators have lost control of the public narrative of their profession and it’s up to them to be their own best advocates. Kate will illustrate the path to advocacy and embolden individuals to act now!

The UI is the THE application

Do you know how many designers and developers still think that UX is a myth? You would be amazed! But, let’s not dwell, we can change their mind instead.
We live in a digital world where everyone can offer a certain type of service, but there’s that small gap that shows the disparity between good and bad delivery. Your app is a collection of tiny details, and if your main goal is to have satisfied users – you’ll be interested to hear why UI/UX is the foundation of your application success.

Taking Time To Understand Time

Working with time is not a trivial challenge. Multiple languages include native support for it but managing time keeps being a constant source of bugs. This often leads to the widespread use of many other libraries in the attempt of easing the work of working with time. The problem does not rely on the tool, but in the basic concepts around time. We interact with time every day, yet when we need computers to do the right thing in all situations, the complexity explodes to levels we are not usually prepared for.
