  • 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.

  • Single Round Match 822 Editorials January 19, 2022 10:54 am
    MakeItDivisible If the number is not divisible by 7, it is always possible to make it divisible by 7 by changing only one of its digits. In particular, we can always do it by changing its last digit. Why? Imagine that we try all possible options for the last digit: 0,1, 2, …, 9. We […] The post Single Round Match 822 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    AssignPoints We just need to execute the point allocation algorithm described in the statement. Instead of sorting all contestants according to their time, we can also note that the range of possible times is pretty small, so we can instead iterate through all times: assign points to everyone who finished in 1 second, then everyone […] The post Single Round Match 821 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    NailingABanner After we finished the setup by placing the first two nails, the banner is one large interval of length 2^60. Then: In the first round we place one nail (i.e., 2^0 nails) and divide the interval into two, each of length 2^59. In the second round we place 2^1 nails and divide those intervals […] The post Single Round Match 820 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    As you may be able to tell, one or two of the problems in this SRM are leftovers from the preparation of TCO 2021 onsite finals. DecimalCoins Suppose we have A coins worth 1 each. Using these, we can pay any amount from the range [0,A]. If A < 9, the larger denominations are useless: […] The post Single Round Match 819 Editorials appeared first on Topcoder.

    COVID-19, the entity that kept us from having an in-person TCO last year, didn’t subside enough to allow an onsite TCO this year as well. Just like last year, although the contestants missed out on the chance to travel to great locations in the US, enjoy the generous hospitality offered by Topcoder and meet with […] The post TCO21 Development Finals Recap appeared first on Topcoder.
