  • The evolution of software engineering April 8, 2021 8:31 am
    No one can learn software engineering in two months, six months, or even a year. You will not be taught to be a software engineer in a course, university, or boot camp. I’ve been learning for the past twenty-plus years and I’m still learning now. I could only safely call myself an experienced software engineer after a decade of learning […] The post The evolution of software engineering appeared first on TuneDit.

  • What is software development proof of concept? April 8, 2021 7:55 am
    Concept validation or proof of concept is an important step when it comes to complex and, therefore, expensive projects. It gives a clear idea of whether the idea is feasible and exactly how to implement it. Thus, proof or proof of concept involves the preparation of a certain list of measurable criteria that allows you to assess the expected end […] The post What is software development proof of concept? appeared first on TuneDit.

  • What programming language should I learn? March 10, 2021 8:38 am
    It is virtually impossible to be a universal IT-specialist. Therefore, first of all it is necessary to choose a programming language. Perhaps the decisive factor will be a certain goal in relation to the direction of activity. A lot of newbies today choose web programming. Modern companies increasingly need specialists to meet the needs of business. The same requires the […] The post What programming language should I learn? appeared first on TuneDit.

  • Who is a Software Engineer January 23, 2021 8:25 am
    All software engineers can code, but not all software engineers are capable of developing software concepts. Some people don’t like the definition of “Software Engineer” (aka software engineer, aka Software Engineer) because most of the time we use the word “engineer” when talking about something more physical – construction, for example. Our article, of course, is not about the term […] The post Who is a Software Engineer appeared first on TuneDit.

  • Software and its development December 25, 2020 8:17 am
    In 1985 a book by Joseph Fox, a project manager from IBM, entitled Software and Software Development, was published. This book formulated the basic principles not only of software development, but also of software project management. They were formulated at a time when there were no icons like ITIL, Agile and others. Recently I reread this book and was pleased […] The post Software and its development appeared first on TuneDit.

  • Open Source: Features and Benefits December 10, 2020 8:08 am
    Breaking the myths about Open Source products The notion of Open Source (or open source code) became a part of developers’ life long ago, but common users are still confused sometimes: lack of understanding leads not only to myths but also to fear to trust open solutions to their company (they say, no one gives any guarantees there!). It is […] The post Open Source: Features and Benefits appeared first on TuneDit.

  • Program quality and code quality November 11, 2020 8:27 am
    Good programs are clear and readable. They are easy to extend, get along well with other programs, and work with them will not be your nightmare. The quality of the code is not negotiable. It has to be high, and that’s it. When considering it, no excuses like a bad mood of the coder or too tight deadlines are acceptable […] The post Program quality and code quality appeared first on TuneDit.

    SunShroom In this problem we just need to do some simple math. If a shroom was planted after query time, we can ignore it.

    We had a thematic SRM: most of the problems were about steps, hops and jumps in some levels of computer games. StepHopJumpEasy We are given a level: a line that consists of safe blocks and traps. We need to produce one way to traverse it. Clearly, if there are three traps in a row anywhere, […] The post Single Round match 814 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    SpireAttack There are two main observations we have to make. First, the number of cards in our hand is small: only up to 50. Second, the number of cards we’ll actually play is also small. As we have three actions and each card costs at least one action, we will clearly play at most three […] The post Single Round Match 812 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.
