When our test suite grows we start to notice that some parts of our code get duplicated. Duplicated code decreases readability and is hard to manage since eventual changes or fixes have to be propagated to all duplicated parts. Solution to such situation is to keep your code DRY meaning ‘Don’t repeat yourself’. This is one of the most basic programming  principles that we should also use while writing specs for our applications.

Swift has been around for some time now, and it is becoming a more and more appealing solution, not only for mobile and macOS developers – the next frontier is the server side!

I’m amazed how much mobile developers despise SQL. It’s fast and efficient way of storing data, proven in battle in so many years. I guess the reason of that for many of them, myself included, is the way we were taught at universities. For a beginner programmer, it’s quite a challenge to dive in into SQL, with its complicated queries and non-intuitive relations. I remember being overwhelmed and repulsed by it. For the same reason, I hated C for so long. I guess it takes time to appreciate a technology fully, but the feeling of accomplishment after completing a low-level language project is much bigger than creating something with the use of easier, ready-to-go solutions.

What is transcoding This process can be extremely useful in applications for streaming music or video files. Transcoding simply means converting a file from one digital format to another. A media file usually consists of a number of pieces - called tracks - which are packed into a container along with metadata information. Each of the tracks is encoded into a specific format. Transcoding is done by extracting those tracks from the container, then decoding, filtering, and encoding again each of them one after another, and finally packing them into a new container.

Maybe your projects require different versions of database or you need different database settings for different projects.
