Google is rolling out Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) in Chrome browsers – which is more than 60% of all browsers worldwide, based on page visits. I never used Chrome and am an avid Firefox user, but this is important for every Web user and the Web as the whole. What is FLoC? Basically, third-party… Continue reading This site is now opted out of Google FLoC
The purpose of this article is to give you an overview about why and how to migrate your current partitions to Btrfs filesystem, and to give you kind of a step-by-step walkthrough – if you know what you’re doing!
Before writing my recap of 2020 (is there anything even out there to recap? 😱), I decided to finally create a portfolio page, a showcase of my favorite projects so far. Of course, not all projects are created equal, but it’s fairly hard to showcase “refactoring legacy Java applications”, “migrating build pipelines” or “improving database… Continue reading New porfolio page!
I had the privilege to hold a web development workshop at the People Team summer camp. People Team is a fairly popular youth camp where participating kids choose some focus topic and attend to various lectures, workshops and activities during the week. The topics range from learning languages, through arts, sciences, robotics, cooking, environmental protection… Continue reading Speaking at People Team camp
I’m not even sure if software engineering exists, or whether it should be called as such. See my opinionated post below. How software emerged As a reference, I have a ‘mechatronics engineering’ MSc, which is mostly a mix of electronics and mechanincal engineering. These classic engineering fields are called ‘engineering disciplines’. Mechanical (and also civil)… Continue reading Does ‘software engineering’ even exist?
I really enjoy Coursera courses and have been doing them since I have been doing software engineering. It’s a great way to broaden my knowledge since I’ve never received formal computer science or software engineering education. Just a quick update: I added a list of what I have completed to the About page. Not really… Continue reading Self-taught software engineering: Coursera & co.
Probably the longest self-description of one’s programming skills you’ve read in a while. Head right over there!
It’s nice to have a list ready about what I would want to achieve this year. One is really ambitious of course, but this is something to refer back to later during the year, something to get inspired from in times of difficulty. So here we go.
I am doing the Data Structures And algorithms specialization on Coursera. (Which means every now and then I pick it up and make a few weeks of progress…) Started out with Python and now I’m switching to Java. In this post I’ll show you how to set up stress testing, by generating random input data… Continue reading Stress testing for “Data Structures and Algorithms” courses – Java & Python
