Here’s why it’s awesome to be a programmer Steve Jobs said in an interview that “everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think”. And to be honest, truer words have never been spoken. The programmers’ day is on the 13th of September, the 256th day of the year. You might wonder, like I did, “Why day 256?”. The official answer is because the standard binary…

All credit goes to Luca Spezzano for his dedication and awesome work by writing this article. Give him a few claps on his medium article here :).

Any adept programmer, not only needs to be good at programming but also has to stay abreast of the upcoming happenings in programming. Just learning to code won’t give you a big edge…

Welcome to IEEE Spectrum’s sixth annual interactive ranking of the top programming languages. This year they’ve done a major overhaul and changed some of the most underlying metrics, and built a new streamlined interface. But, the basic idea and methodology still remain the same: combining data from multiple sources to rank the popularity of the languages that are used for the type of coding you are interested in. They took the approach to get around the two main…

How to remap keys on MacBook I’ve recently transitioned from Windows to MacBook, and the keyboard really messes you up. Over the last few days, I’ve found myself using a keyboard designed for Windows on my Mac. The main reason behind this is that the MacBook’s keyboard was causing wring pain.
