Bisection or Binary logic is an example of a simple yet powerful idea in computer science that has today become an integral part of every computer scientist’s arsenal. It stands synonymous to logarithmic time complexity that is no less than music to a programmer’s ears. Yet, the technique never fails to surprise us with all the creative ways it has been put to use to solve some tricky programming problems. This blog-post will endeavour to acquaint you with a few such problems and their solutions to delight you and make you appreciate it’s ingenuity and efficacy. Continue reading
Here are the three winners of our The Time is Write 2.0 competition! You can read the three articles below, but first: congrats to Dipika Rajesh, Aditi Balaji and Pratyush Singh.
The Time is Write is an article writing competition that encourages all the aspiring writers to lay out their thoughts in writin and to share them on a global platform. This year, participants had to write a short article on the topic “Your Dream Software: Revolutionize the future”, about what their idea of a perfect software might be in order to revolutionize a particular field.
Processing large datasets or working with huge data is a usual stage in almost any kind of research. The problem appears when processing these data requires long processing time on any kind of personal laptop. In order to solve that issue, we have at our hands the possibility of using any major compute cloud provider in order to accelerate that processing stage wasting minimal time and resources. Cloud computing allows us with a few clicks to build a computer cluster, process our data, get the results and destroy that cluster for only a few dollars.
Agile methods on software development are very popular. The root of these methods must be sought in the on the Agile Manifesto that says:
In short, these lines says that the world is always changing, the adaptation to change, the collaboration between people and the transfer of knowledge should be a priority in our professional life.
These objectives fit with software development but also with research because, we software developers and researchers are always looking for new challenges, always updating our professional network and making improvement in science.
