Workshop - Git Gud

During the university summer break, I attended Mission Ready HQ as a student. Mission Ready HQ is a council funded programme that teaches university students/graduates about technical and business skills. At this event I was invited to give a workshop to students on fundamentals in using git and how it plays a part in a successful team environment for tech industries.

Git, GitHub and Open Tech Workshop - II

University students engage in number of projects. Many of them being group projects, they don’t seem to have in-depth knowledge on how to use proper software tools to make life much easier. The scenario is much complicated when the audience is students who are new to campus life.

Lessons from hosting a hackathon for complete beginners, and why they liked it.

Hackathons are fun, interactive and social gathering of like minded people who spend their time hacking together pieces of code to build something cool. For years hackathons have been known for huge cash prizes for winners. Sometimes the numbers are just humungous. Having a huge cash prize means, attracting more hackers, giving rise to a complete competitive enviroment. So here’s a question? Being a complete beginner to the entire programming thingy and having to compete with highly skilled people (There drowns half of your motivation) just to end up comparing yourself and having that thought of “Am I really cut out for this?” might always get a “nay!” from our young lads.

Git + GitHub Workshop at Sahyadri

Having to deal with academic projects working in a team is always a mess. Passing the source code of your projects using pen-drives and Google Drive was always a pain. Well, it’s a mess because you’re not doing it right. Let’s see how softwares are built and how thousands of programmers contribute to a single codebase without losing track of things their fellow developers are working on.

GUADEC 2018

What I can say? GUADEC it’s that kind of conference that looks like everything, except a conference.

It was probably the most humane event that I ever attended and hold a talk. I really loved it, enjoyed it. And made many friends 😄

Using Firebase Realtime Database with complicated queries

Last week, I had a client who uses Firebase as a backend service. One of the clear issues he found himself in, is that he didn’t well design his database when he created his app the first time, which when the app grew up so fast leaded to a big amount of mixed rubbish, neither him could well analyze it nor the user was able to have a good UX (‘cuz of the big amount of unnecessary data he has to download despite the fact he needs it or no ).
