Moment to redefine non-essentials.

Just think of it - almost every job that was generating trillions of dollars across the globe just a few weeks ago is now termed 'non-essential' and confined to our home. Unless you are a healthcare worker or you contribute anything in anyways to basic human survival -  food, security, utilities, air, water - you... Continue Reading →

Results.

So, we are done with another edition of our Art of Coding class, where we teach our students on the nuances of programming practices, with special emphasis on problem-solving methods, software engineering and along the way writing lots of clean code and test scripts to implement some interesting algorithms. The obvious question that comes out... Continue Reading →

No Jobs ?!?

'Are you kidding me? For the past few months, we have been hunting for the right fit for few of the full stack developer positions and a machine learning engineer for our startup, with our own tests in an online coding platform and referrals from closed circuits. We are yet to find any. We even... Continue Reading →

Ability to Code (from scratch).

Are you a programmer or anyway connected with software development? Let me ask you this question. When was the last time you wrote a fully functional block of code without checking Google or Stack overflow or Github? Or, when was the last time you really sat back and enjoyed your own, beautiful code - 'Wow,... Continue Reading →

A much desired habit.

Numbers fascinate me and so did a statistic that I received recently in my mail box. What's so surprising? Almost everything in that list is a game. I thought for a second, could it be just an Android phenomenon; perhaps iPhone users do something different? Here is the same metric for iPhone users from the... Continue Reading →

Uncanny Valley

Have you heard this term - uncanny valley? It was coined in the 70s (yes, way back in 1970!) by the Japanese roboticist, Masahiro Mori who created a graph that plotted the emotional response of a human being to a robot against the increase in the perceived realism of a robot. In simpler terms what this... Continue Reading →
