Math In Programming – Do You Really Need It?

When ten years ago someone asked me “what do you want to do when you grow up?” I answered, “I wanna be an IT guy”. Then the person asked another question: “do you know that you will have to learn and understand Math?”. I answered yes and kept this in my mind for the next ten years.

Live templates in JetBrains products

“Live Templates” is one of many features that JetBrains software comes with. It is common that developers need to repeat certain lines of code over and over again. When you are fed up with writing the same piece of code every time you need it, then you start looking for it in the sources to simply copy and paste it. Not only is this very time-consuming, but also frustrating. It is easy to imagine that you need to repeatedly use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V when in a hurry, and using a mouse to select a text makes it even harder. In such cases, live templates can save your time.

Rzeszów Hackathon – LIVE

Today we are taking part in Rzeszów Hackathon. Our team consists of 4 members – Bartek, Vlad, Michał and me.

Do you really know how to use GitHub?

Almost all of us use GitHub on a daily basis. We usually work with it in two ways. Firstly, as a version control system which helps us to develop applications. Secondly, as a library of projects written by other programmers. Sometimes we use their code in our applications. Today I want to show you that GitHub is a multidimensional tool and can be used for things not necessarily connected with coding.

Bitspiration Festiwal

Jedną z nagród w Pekatonie były wejściówki na Bitspiration Festiwal. W niedzielę 5 czerwca około godziny 12:00 wrócilismy do domów po 24-godzinnym hackatonie, a o 23:00 siedzieliśmy na Skype organizując wyjazd do Warszawy, ponieważ Bitspiration zaczynał się o 09:00 dnia następnego. Z Krakowa wyjechaliśmy o 05:45, w Warszawie byliśmy grubo po 08:00.

Żaden z nas nie znał wcześniej wydarzenia o nazwie Bitspiration. Cała nasza wiedza na ten temat opierała się na informacjach znalezionych w Internecie. Organizatorzy opisywali festiwal jako

The conference where technology, startups & music clash to inspire revolutionary solutions!

Brzmi nieźle.
