  • 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.

    FridayTheThirteenth We can copy the month lengths from the statement straight into our code. Then we add isLeap to the number of days in February and we are ready to simulate. As a year only has a few hundred days (365 or 366), we can simply iterate over all months, for each month over all […] The post Single Round Match 832 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    SmallestOppositeNumber It always pays off when we can break the solution of a problem into a sequence of simpler steps. In this case we can identify two such steps: First, we should find the digits that have to appear in Y. Then, we should construct the smallest number with a given set of digits. There […] The post Single Round Match 831 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    AssignLabels We have been given a task with two separate parts: first we need to produce a set of distinct labels, and then we need to assign them to the objects in correct order. One way to produce a set of labels is to copy an arbitrarily long text. You can sort its words, discard […] The post Single Round Match 830 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    SlidingDoors The problem can be solved by pure simulation of sliding the panels one at a time, but there are other solutions that are much simpler to implement. The main idea is to realize that we don’t actually have to return a sequence of instructions how to push the panels, just a “picture” of the […] The post Single Round Match 828 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    AddFlowers The way to discover a full solution is to realize that a single flower F is a valid input. In order to fix such a flower we need to give it two friends: flowers 1 and 2. Those two friends now only have one friend each: the original flower F. They each need another […] The post TCO22 Round 2B Editorial appeared first on Topcoder.

    PlugStuffIn Whenever we have an unplugged power cord, we can always plug it into a socket that has power: we lose exactly one powered socket (the one into which we plugged the cord) and we gain at least one powered socket (those offered by our power cord). Thus, we can always proceed as follows: Plug […] The post TCO22 Round 2A Editorial appeared first on Topcoder.
