Java was a beautiful programming language for me to learn. I still love the way it forced me to write the neat and organized code, though I didn’t like the idea of writing extra  lines just to write a “Hello world” and also the performance of the language. I think, it became popular because of Android adoption and will fade in upcoming years because of legal disputes and strategical changes of Google to replace it with some other language like Kotlin or Dart. Among a lot of beautiful things from Java, one common goodie is setter-getters. I assume, you are…

IGTV – Instagram TV, someone again wanted to challenge the Youtbue. We have been seeing a lot of vendors coming and going in the hope to build the empire like Youtbue and grab the share from it. Well, no one succeed yet or came at least near. Even Facebook started the video streaming and had to fake the video analytics data to gain more eye balls in desperation. There is Vimeo and others but YT is king here. But then things keep happening and here Instagram, under Facebook Inc, has now tried the same attempt. Well we might see Insta…

Fitness Band, alias Fitness Trackers – are made for the purpose of tracking your heart and body activities using sensors embedded in them and showing the report of the same on your phone. On paper it sounds very cool to fitness enthusiast and everyone else concerned. I was never excited about it, always thought it’s a new hyped tech product and a distraction indeed in a human peaceful life (if you have one then :p ).I believe it is not a good thing to use more and more tech device in daily life. Well, I got this Lenovo HX03 band…

If you wonder what this post means, let me break it a bit for you. I work as Software Engineer at AlienHu– an Indian startup company working to develop most simplified POS and ERP solutions for SMEs. I have been here for almost 1 year now. I have been assigned responsibilities for Saloon app, Print things, Hotkeys and few other modules. In-spite of busy work schedule, I really love to discuss and share Technology, Ideas and Business with people. And the original idea behind my blog is to do the same by dumping the thoughts and experiences whatever i am…

I am having a really bad experience with YouTube. Its algorithm shows me 90% of trending videos in local language, which i don’t really understand. It’s fine they track the location and serve the customised feeds to me, but why there is no consideration of my watching history into this. This literally sucks and i never get anything from the trending page. But that’s a problem in small picture and can be fixed easily if YouTube wants to. The bigger issue is what they call now – AI, specifically Machine Learning in this case. I tell you how. Take example…

Last weekend, my company organised a Goa tour for all developers. It was the first trip by the company and i was out with a great team. We reached our hotel in Colva at 11am around. After having quick beers and some fun talk, we made to swimming pool there. Ball-game was on, people were quick to beat each other with the water filled small ball. I was also a part of it for a short time. But, I was not able to run from them most of the times since i was not knowing how to swim 🙁 I…

I installed WhatsApp for Business and was using when it launched in India last month. It was minimal like the core WhatsApp app only. There were few extra changes added to keep Business in mind. Like, Contact details, Stats, Auto replies, Quick reply and Labels. Rest everything was same like older one. I started to use Auto reply after getting it. I used delay replies. For which i always had to tell ppl that it is automated. Then contact details was of no use for me except showing my web address. Labelling was something might have good but i never…

While doing Appointment module, one of colleague used Calendar UI. It was not re rendering that time only, a known issue for the module. After few days the project came to me. I also struggled to make it working. I went through all suggested fixes on internet but it was no help. After spending 2-3 hours on this, I wanted to write a workaround for it by myself. The idea was to manipulate the DOM and recreate it. After first shot, I saw still events was coming same. So then 2 things were possible reasons – one was event source…

If you have been following me on Instagram or EyeEm, you would have known my fond of taking pics in leisure. Its my favorite timepass too. Though I am not a great photographer like many out there and lack skill and setup heavily. But whenever I get the time I take my Oneplus to get a picture of anything in front of me. I like to take landscape pics more though. As with growing smartphone technology including camera sensors and apps, it’s now easier than ever before to take a better pic, if not great. So, I started photography in…
