I’ve taken a long sabbatical from the site because of an overdose of dealing with websites and people suffering from Dunning-Kruger Syndrome. Seriously, 20 years of looking at badly designed websites takes its toll, but like John Wick, I’m back. Bad websites: Prepare to get shot in the face a la John Wick. Click picture for my feelings on the matter.

Like John Wick, I'm back.

This shouldn’t be a surprise as the world is seeing a quantifiable move from the desktop to mobile.

Software testing is an important part of the release of a new software. Before release, a lot of testing has to be completed in order to know about existing glitches and errors. Based on results obtained from testing, such glitches can be rectified. QA testing training can be completed both online as well in classrooms.

The need for QA testing

Quality control is very important for any software. QA testing helps in rolling out a robust software product. Codes and functionalities need to be checked in an effective manner. After a candidate completes QA testing, he or she is in a position to deeply scrutinise the quality of a software product.

Professionals can either be freshers in the field of software testing, or they may be already familiar with the technologies. Freshers need to understand why software needs testing and how it tends to acquire glitches. Candidates have to learn … Read More

Explaining “Cookies” (the non caloric ones that reside in your computer!)

You can’t talk about all those nasty ‘things’ that can ‘attack’ your computer while you are surfing the Internet, like viruses or spyware, without talking about ‘Cookies’. But what are they and are they really bad for my computer?

Ok, first let’s define the term, and then we’ll explain the good and the bad about it.

Cookie(s):

A small data (text and numbers) file (piece of information) created by a Web server (large computer that stores web sites) that is stored on your computer either temporarily for that session only (the time that you spend on a web site) or permanently on the hard disk (persistent cookie).

A program is a set of instructions or commands to be executed by the computer to accomplish some task. A program involves code for solving a problem and also good documentation which would be a guideline to anyone who tries to understand the program.

An algorithm is a formula, a method, a recipe, a step by step procedure to be followed in order to obtain the solution to a problem.

Conversion of an algorithm to a program in a programming language following the syntax and semantics of that language is defined as a code.

Syntax is the correct method or grammar of writing a command or series of commands which are pre-defines by that particular programming language. Semantics is the logical meaning of a program or series of commands, separate from the grammatical structure. The computer detects syntax errors but does not detect logical errors.

15 Good Programming Habits

May 3, 2020 | programming | No Comments

1. Before sitting down for coding, you must have formal or a paper-napkin design of the solution to be coded. Never start coding without any design unless the code is trivial one.

2. Good code documentation is as important as good knowledge of a programming language. Write brief logic for each major block of your code as comments in source code file itself. Its good to mention creation and modification dates of your program along-with why modification was required.

3. Maintaining versions of your program is another important task. Some present-day programming tools already have a built-in version management. Whenever you make any change to your program, they save its copy as.bak file.

My approach is to maintain 3 versions of a program. Say, I have a file program.c which is used by other project team members also. I copy this file as program.c.old as backup and make another copy … Read More
