In a perfect Android world, the main language of Java is really modern, clear, and elegant. You can write less by doing more, and whenever a new feature appears, developers can use it just by increasing version in Gradle. Then while creating a very nice app, it appears fully testable, extensible, and maintainable. Our activities are not too large and complicated, we can change data sources from database to web without tons of differences, and so on. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, the Android world isn’t this ideal. Google is still striving for perfection, but we all know that ideal worlds don’t exist. Thus, we have to help ourselves in that great journey in the Android world.

Kotlin and Java - Android
Kotlin is a popular new player in the Android world. But can it ever replace Java?
What Is Kotlin, and Why Should You Use It?
So, the first language. I think that Java isn’t the master of elegance or clarity, and it is neither modern nor expressive (and I’m guessing you agree). The disadvantage is that below Android N, we are still limited to Java 6 (including some small parts of Java 7). Developers can also attach RetroLambda to use lambda expressions in their code, which is very useful while using RxJava. Above Android N, we can use some of Java 8’s new functionalities, but it’s still that old, heavy Java. Very often I hear Android developers say “I wish Android supported a nicer language, like iOS does with Swift”. And what if I told you that you can use a very nice, simple language, with null safety, lambdas, and many other nice new features? Welcome to Kotlin.

While running a digital marketing agency, Neerav Parekh regularly updated his clients on their campaign performance with reports and charts that were carefully put together.
However, the clients were quickly snowed under the blizzard of data, and inevitably demanded that account managers personally visit them and take them through these reports.

This was a laborious process and, rather than plod through it repeatedly, Parekh, a serial entrepreneur, turned to artificial intelligence (AI), the science of trying to make computers think and act like humans, for a solution.

His product, Phrazor, is aimed at automating the process of interpreting data and communicating insights. Having used Phrazor for his agency, Parekh has now sought to extend the reach of his product.
"I realised its enormous potential to change the way data was understood not just in digital marketing but in every other sphere where data was being presented," he says.

"Every company has to send performance reports to its employees or customers. The focus of our venture is to help companies communicate the insights in their data to their people at scale."

For his 14-month-old firm vPhrase, Parekh has ambitious targets he eyes companies not just in India but also in the US and targets to be in the rest of Asia and Europe in three years. "There is a huge opportunity both in India and in other countries in the analysis and interpretation of data," he adds.

What is BEM Methodology?

When you are building smaller websites, how you organize your styles is usually not a big problem. You create your usual files, write all the needed CSS, and that’s all. However, when it comes to larger, more complex projects, how you organize your code becomes crucial. How the code is structured is even more important if you are working in a team consisting of multiple front-end and back-end developers.
BEM Methodology will massively improve code maintainability and speed up the development process

Today, there are plenty of methodologies with the aim of reducing CSS code and making your CSS code more maintainable. In this article, I am going to explain and provide a few examples of one of them: BEM.

What do chip makers like AMD, ARM, Samsung, MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments have in common? Well, apart from the obvious similarities between these chip-making behemoths, they also happen to be founders of the HSA Foundation. What’s HSA, and why does it need a foundation backed by industry heavyweights?
In this post I will try to explain why HSA could be a big deal in the near future, so I’ll start with the basics: What is HSA and why should you care?
HSA stands for Heterogeneous System Architecture, which sounds kind of boring, but trust me, it could become very exciting, indeed. HSA is essentially a set of standards and specifications designed to allow further integration of CPUs and GPUs on the same bus. This is not an entirely new concept; desktop CPUs and mobile SoCs have been employing integrated graphics and using a single bus for years, but HSA takes it to the next level.
Same load, different architectures: CPUs and GPUs excel at different tasks. What happens when they start sharing the load, with no developer input?

How to write clean code and how to easily handle exception?
Exception Handling Code
Exceptions are as old as programming itself. Back in the days when programming was done in hardware, or via low-level programming languages, exceptions were used to alter the flow of the program, and to avoid hardware failures. Today, Wikipedia defines exceptions as:

anomalous or exceptional conditions requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution…

And that handling them requires:

Specialized programming language constructs or computer hardware mechanisms.

So, exceptions require special treatment, and an unhandled exception may cause unexpected behavior. The results are often spectacular. In 1996, the famous Ariane 5 rocket launch failure was attributed to an unhandled overflow exception. History’s Worst Software Bugs contains some other bugs that could be attributed to unhandled or miss-handled exceptions.


Over time, these errors, and countless others (that were, perhaps, not as dramatic, but still catastrophic for those involved) contributed to the impression that exceptions are bad.

Flyboard Air hoverboard from Zapato Recing.

Flyboard Air Hoverboard

When you post video of your new jet powered hoverboard, and half the world thinks it has to be fake, you know you've got something good. But Frank Zapata's Flyboard Air is no hoax, it's the real deal. How does one know? All you gotta do is ask him.


These days, with millions of astute viewers scrutizing every physical detail, the easiest way to make a convincing video that gets all the physics of something like a jetpack flight right, is to first make the jetpack. What's the hardest part of making a magic flying carpet you might ask? "The power is there", says Frank, "and has been for some time, the trick is controlling it." In other words, the technical challenge is building a responsive interface that integrates the control capabilities of the human nervous system and musculature with that of your machine.

Where the response time of a man-sized electric fan propulsion system may be around a second, a turbine of a similar power output would have a minimum lag of about three seconds. That's one of the reasons, if not the main reason that turbine powered cars never really took off. But the ear doesn't lie. If your craft sounds more like a hummingbird than a fighter jet, you can expect it to behave more like one in a strong headwind.
