This is just a quick remark about playing around with videos into gif conversion.
Hello there, my name is Oleg Abrazhaev. I have a pretty interesting biography and a career as a Software Engineer for a couple of years. And as many Software Engineers, I haven’t touched functional programming at all, until some time. And when I did, I realized several things.
- OOP and imperative way of writing code is so dominant, that a lot of developers even do not know, that other approaches exist and that there are other ways to write code.
- We use techniques and approaches from a functional programming all the time while writing our OOP code implementations, but we do it unconsciously.
Hello there. In this post, I would like to share examples of parsing different formats to Scala Map data structure. Here I will add only examples for the query string, json, and XML with which I have been working so far. Some code copied and adapted from other sources including SO. My goal is mostly to repeat it for myself and assemble complete example.
For the last 3 months, I started to work with a completely new paradigm for me – functional programming. And with the new programming language – Scala, which is not so new for me, because I know Java and Scala runs on JVM. But the way of writing code in Scala is completely new. I decided to put a bit of my thought about going into the functional direction into this post.
About such scenario for the Warcraft 2 or 3 movie, I thought, or to say it more right – I dreamed, before the first Warcraft movie was released, which isn’t disappointed me, but also not amused a lot. That scenario, which plays in my head, for me feels much more exciting. And I decided to put it in the blog post. What are the chances, that even translated into English, that “scenario” would have some value? :)
In this final post in the series about my interview with X-Team, I will write about how it ended and will summarize my experience. Also, I will explain why I decided to dedicate so many posts about an interview with a company, which actually failed for me (not my fault!).
While working on my current project I was needed to generate a unique random string for an email confirmation. It’s a pretty common task and it has a bunch of simple solutions.
But I wanted it to be really random and flexible. I have ended with a helper with static functions which I want to share.
After buying a new laptop, I spent a lot of time with the Internet problem on Ubuntu. And I did manage to solve the problem. There were frequent connection breaks and the internet speed was very slow. At first, I was thinking about buying a new router, but at the same time under Windows 8 everything worked with a bang.
I have left Ukraine 6 years ago. Nowadays if recruiters ask me about relocation to Ukraine I’m alway refuse. In this post, I want to write about what’s wrong with Ukraine in my opinion.
Then they asked me to write more tech details about my previous jobs. Why I’m sharing all these answers? Because I have never written so many in English about myself before. And I want to use these unique texts to market myself. Also, in the end, I was rejected with a ridiculous reason and I will write about it later.
