How to tell if your code actually sucks...

There is no better moment for me than starting a brand new project.

Smells like new project spirit… (Whatever it means)

Starting a new project is funny. Everything seems to be in the right place. But as the projects grow and the deadlines come closer the things begin to boiling.

So, let’s talk about signals that can tell us if our code sucks and we how we can avoid that.

Everyone is afraid of adding or removing stuff

I guess we all have known at least one project that anyone wants to touch, or heard the phrase:

It works, don’t touch it!

Well, that’s not a good signal. I know there are complex projects, big projects, but if nobody in your team can touch it without breaking something, then there is something wrong with that code.

Code is like a garden, it needs to be treat and maintained, if it grows in size or complexity with no control, then will be harder to maintain and easily can get death.

Code grows out of control when there are no conventions to work in it, team practices, even solo practices are important to keep our code under control.

If you see yourself in a scenario where is hard to add things to your project, then you should rethink the whole thing.

Only the creator understands it (Sometimes even the creator can’t.)

If only one person in your team can understand a project, then that’s a problem and hopefully that person never gets sick or goes on vacation.

If you are working by yourself please don’t write overcomplicated code; in my experience simplicity is better; writing code that anyone can read is the right thing to do.

t is clear today may not be that clear in a couple of weeks, even for you.

Use comments on your code. Do not comment on every single line but put enough comments on the complicated and crucial parts.

If you develop on javascript this is a great repo with good practices.

It is difficult to read

I have to insist on this. Simple is better; there is no need to show anyone how abstract you can be or how much you know the language. Keeping things simple is way much more productive than trying to show off your knowledge and skill.

Keep your code as readable as possible, simple as possible. Clear variable names, descriptive functions names, clear statements. This will save time for you and your team.

A good way to measure how readable your code is is to overcome the necessity of comments. If the code does not need many comments to describe it, then it means the code is readable enough.

Conclusion

The best code is not only the one that is fast and performant; the best code is also the one you enjoy working on. I’ve had nightmares of codebases that I had to work with, and I also have had codebases that I enjoy.

Coding is a team sport, and every member of the team must be able to play the game, so write for the team.

How long does it take to develop/build an app?

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.

Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.

There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.

To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.

App Idea & Research

app-idea-research

_Average time spent: two to five weeks _

This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.

All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.

Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.

The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.

The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.

What Is Code Golfing And Biggest Such Tournaments


Code Golf is a game that is designed to let programmers show off their excellency in codes by solving problems in the least number of characters. The word “Golf” in code golfing refers to the popular game golf where two players compete with each other, and the one with the fewest club strokes wins.

Similar to the golf game, code golf is a competition where the winner achieves the specifications in the fewest keystrokes. It is basically a kind of recreational computer programming competition where the participants compete to achieve the shortest possible source code that implements a certain algorithm.

Code Golfing can be said as a classic playground for programmers where the main attempt is to solve a problem with the least number of characters. It is written in Go language, licensed under MIT and is available on GitHub.


Code Golf is free and supports various programming languages including Python, Haskell, JavaScript, Julia, Perl, Rust, Swift, Ruby and more. Currently, it provides a number of games including 12 days of Christmas, Abundant numbers, Fizz Buzz, 99 Bottles of Beer, Diamonds, Evil Numbers and much more. If you are playing for the first time, it has been suggested to start with a simple game, such as Fizz Buzz.

How Code Golfing Works

Below here, we listed general tips of Code Golf that are implemented in popular languages like

Python and others.

  1. Conditional Statement:

Original- if a<b:return a

else:return b

**Code Golf- **return(b,a)[a<b]

  1. AND Operators

Original- if a > 1 and b > 1 and 3 > a and 5 > b: foo()

Code Golf- if 3 > a > 1 < b < 5: foo()

  1. Multiple Statements

Original- while foo(a):

print a;a*=2

**Code Golf- *while foo(a):print a;a=2

  1. Replacing Append

**Original- **A.append(B)

**Code Golf- **A+=B,

  1. Ceil Value of a Real Number

**Original- **from math import ceil

n = 3/2

print(ceil(n))

Code Golf- n = 3/2

print(-(-n//1))

How Does The Score Work?

The score of your solution is the count of the Unicode characters in your source code. This means both “A” (U+0041 Latin Capital Letter A) and “” (U+1F609 Winking Face) cost the same despite the 1:4 ratio in byte count in UTF-8.

For each hole, the shortest solution is awarded 1,000 points, with the points decreasing in uniform decrements per rank. Your overall score is simply the sum of your points in each hole. Also, the execution time is limited to 5 seconds.

Developer Career Path: To Become a Team Lead or Stay a Developer?

For a developer, becoming a team leader can be a trap or open up opportunities for creating software. Two years ago, when I was a developer, I was thinking, “I want to be a team leader. It’s so cool, he’s in charge of everything and gets more money. It’s the next step after a senior.” Back then, no one could tell me how wrong I was. I had to find it out myself.

I Got to Be a Team Leader — Twice

I’m naturally very organized. Whatever I do, I try to put things in order, create systems and processes. So I’ve always been inclined to take on more responsibilities than just coding. My first startup job, let’s call it T, was complete chaos in terms of development processes.

Now I probably wouldn’t work in a place like that, but at the time, I enjoyed the vibe. Just imagine it — numerous clients and a team leader who set tasks to the developers in person (and often privately). We would often miss deadlines and had to work late. Once, my boss called and asked me to come back to work at 8 p.m. to finish one feature — all because the deadline was “the next morning.” But at T, we were a family.

We also did everything ourselves — or at least tried to. I’ll never forget how I had to install Ubuntu on a rack server that we got from one of our investors. When I would turn it on, it sounded like a helicopter taking off!

At T, I became a CTO and managed a team of 10 people. So it was my first experience as a team leader.

Then I came to work at D — as a developer. And it was so different in every way when it came to processes.

They employed classic Scrum with sprints, burndown charts, demos, story points, planning, and backlog grooming. I was amazed by the quality of processes, but at first, I was just coding and minding my own business. Then I became friends with the Scrum master. I would ask him lots of questions, and he would willingly answer them and recommend good books.

My favorite was Scrum and XP from the Trenches by Henrik Kniberg. The process at D was based on its methods. As a result, both managers and sellers knew when to expect the result.

Then I joined Skyeng, also as a developer. Unlike my other jobs, it excels at continuous integration with features shipped every day. Within my team, we used a Kanban-like method.

We were also lucky to have our team leader, Petya. At our F2F meetings, we could discuss anything, from missing deadlines to setting up a task tracker. Sometimes I would just give feedback or he would give me advice.

That’s how Petya got to know I’d had some management experience at T and learned Scrum at D.

So one day, he offered me to host a stand-up.

COVID-19 Has Changed the Future of Low-Code. Are You Ready?

How can we turbo-charge growth for the modern business? A hint: ride on the coattails of low-code software development and bridge the digital gap.

Given the benefits of rapid development - lower costs, faster delivery, and greater accessibility - the low-code market is pushing forward to a digital revolution and is projected to reach $27.23 billion in the year 2022. But for those with an eye for faster development cycles will know, today’s leading platforms - such as OutSystemsMendixLinx - were offering rapid development tools from as early as the naughties.

Since then, there has been no looking back.

But before we get to 2022, we need to understand 2020 - the year of Coronavirus - which has ushered in a new reality: Being an adaptable, the digital enterprise has never been more critical. So, how do we adapt, and what lies ahead in 2020?

Pushing to Digital Can Affect Positive Change

In this era of digital transformation, the ability to ship products quickly is a precious trait. Embracing the changes in technology and the newest innovations is no longer limited to the high-flying startups in Silicon Valley or Fortune 500s. Today, every company needs to be a technology company in some way.

Specifically for development, we have come to a place where thanks to many libraries and frameworks, what would’ve once taken many developers to build from scratch is now more often than not, replaced by very few IT pros plumbing different things together.

And if this is the trend to follow (efficiency!), it is why we are seeing so many “no-code” or “low-code” solutions popping up all over the place.

The truth is that in 2020, there are increasingly fewer reasons to write code. From small one or two-person businesses to unicorn startups and large multinationals, every company needs a developer or a team of developers to help with scaling digitally. The difference today is the increased demand to deliver products quickly, meaning that developers need a way to move faster. For those willing to break the model of traditional development, the solution can be found in low-code tools.

And the benefits are apparent:

  • **Speed **- Instead of time-consuming code, low-code platforms use visual models, eliminating the need for knowledge of syntax or boilerplate code.
  • **Flexibility **– Solving unique business problems via customization, without being exorbitantly expensive (read: hours writing code), will always prevail.
  • **Automation **– Less time wasted in trying to get things to work, and more time spent in actually getting them done. Win-win.
