  • Designing for Concurrency: the Hilbert’s Hotel Problem in Go

    In this article, we want to show how achieving concurrency is the result of an appropriate design. A concurrent solution may turn out to be more elegant and easier to reason about than an equivalent sequential algorithm. To illustrate these concepts we use, as an example, the Hilbert’s Hotel mathematical problem.

  • Your Tech Stack Doesn’t Do What Everyone Needs It To. What Next?

    Stack extensibility is an essential trait of well-designed IT ecosystems. Low-code BPA (Business Process Automation) has advantages that puts it at the forefront of approaches to stack extensibility. Learn how low-code software increases process resiliency by empowering business teams with an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand and, most of all, IT-sanctioned set of tools.

  • Adopting Low Code/No Code: Six Fitnesses to Look for

    When selecting a no-code/low-code platform, six key fitnesses should be examined: purpose fit, cost fit, ops fit, user fit, use-case fit, and organization fit. The IT team should be heavily involved in this decision as they play a pivotal role in helping citizen developers with platform adoption.

  • PHP 8 - Classes and Enums

    In this article, we will review new PHP 8 features related to classes, including enums, used to specify an enumerated list of possible values for a type; the new readonly modifier for a class property, which makes the property unmodifiable after its initialization; and constructor parameter promotion, useful to assign a constructor parameter value to an object property automatically.

  • The Future of DevOps is No-Code

    The need for high-quality DevOps personnel is skyrocketing, but it is harder than ever to find enough staff. It is possible to augment your DevOps organization using no-code and low-code tooling. Low-code and no-code tools can free up existing developers by reducing the time spent on integrating and administering DevOps toolsets.
