• Smart house with Xiaomi on the example of a sauna

    There are quite a few reviews and videos on the Internet about building smart houses. There is an opinion that all this is quite expensive and troublesome in the organization, that is, in general, the fate of geeks. But progress is not standing still. Devices are becoming cheaper and more functional, and design and installation are quite simple. However, the reviews mainly focus on 1-2 examples of use, practically not covering nuances and not creating a complete picture. Therefore, in this article I want to make an overview of the finished project, demonstrate the use cases and pitfalls encountered in building a smart home with Xiaomi devices on the example of a sauna. The described ideas with small variations can also be applied to the automation of the apartment.

    Background or why all of this is necessary


    For starters, a little background so that the context can be understood. In the early autumn of 2018, the sauna was finished and put into operation. The sauna is an autonomous capital structure with year-round heating and water supply.

          • Future economics for physicists

              Annotation. This article gives an analogy between the forces of nature and various types of money. A justification for the "money conservation laws" is made. Explanation of the IT-money phenomenon by analogy to physics laws is given, as well as gold and currency money. The transition from the gold and currency to the gold-currency-computing economy is considered. A reasonable assumption is made that the fourth type of money after gold, securities and IT money will be so-called "citation indices" or "ratings", which are similar in their properties to stock indices.


              What is money?


              This article is an attempt to understand what money is from the physics and econophysics points of view. Econophysics (economics and physics) is an interdisciplinary research field, applying theories and methods originally developed by physicists to solve problems in economics, usually those including uncertainty or stochastic processes, nonlinear dynamics and evolutionary games.

                • Creating a taxi booking business in Dubai: How to launch customer-centric taxi app like Careem & Hala?



                    Dubai has been an extra-ordinary territory when it comes to adopting technology and the offshoots of any innovation. It might be surprising for everyone to know that Dubai, which today stands as an epicenter of modernity had just 13 registered cars in 1989.


                    Dubai is quite an oxymoron. In spite of its global image, Dubai has an affinity for homegrown Brands. This mindset is not just confined to the Emirates but to the whole of the Middle East, stretching right from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan.

                        • PHP Vs ASP.NET: How to Choose the Right One?

                          image

                          Are you a business owner looking for PHP web development services or ASP.Net development services, but unable to decide the right technology for your project? Are you looking for the pros and cons of ASP.Net and PHP to take an effective decision?  I have tried to make this task easy for you by comparing ASP.Net and PHP in a very simple way.

                          There are a number of articles and blogs available over the Internet with a large amount of information about PHP Vs ASP.NET. Unfortunately, most of these blog posts are biased and typically based on promoting one over the other.  

                          In this blog post, I have done an unbiased comparison between the two most popular technologies i.e. PHP and ASP.NET in today’s world. 

                          On one side, we have PHP, the world’s most used and popular technology on the internet with billions of dedicated PHP developers across the world. On the other side, we have ASP.NET, a Microsoft platform. Sometimes, it becomes quite difficult to have a clear decision about which technology (Php or Asp.net) should we prefer for our application or website development project? 

                          Here is an elaborative comparison guide that helps you figure out the best technology for your next web app development project. I can assure you that after reading this article, you’ll have a clear idea about which technology suits you better. Moreover, you can share your thoughts and feedback in our comment box. We welcome your positive feedback for appreciating our work. Also, I will be happy to hear from you if you want us to do some improvements to my article.

This project was called Zillions of Games. It created a furor among fans of board games. Currently, over 2,000 applications have been created using this technology.

                        • Information Technology Trends in 2020 | Top Career Trends in IT

                            With the evolution of disruptive technologies over the years, the Indian economy has witnessed a standard shift in the IT industry which leads to a technological and economic revolution. As India remains to be the prime runner in the global market, several Indian IT companies have set up delivery centers all around the globe. In the year 2019, there was seen an increase in big data, machine learning (ML) and companies that are producing hardware and software specialties for supporting AR (augmented reality), ML (machine learning).

                            As everyone knows the mobile app development will also continue to be high in demand as they have been seen in the past years. As per the stats, the job opportunities in the cybersecurity space between Jan 2019 and Aug 2019 have been ever increasing. As noticed on online job portals, the job vacancy in this field has increased by 4% while the job hunts for specific roles have been increased by 6.5%. Technology has been evolving at such a high salary and accelerated pace that the annual prediction of trends can seem out of date before they even go live.

                            2.27 million new positions have been added in the year 2019 hosted by the very strong employment market, as per the stats of Glassdoor Job market trends. One of the most important and permanent IT job market trends for CIOs to observe is the continued gap between technology talent demand and supply. It is predicted that there will be 1.4 million open technology jobs but only 400,000 new IT graduates all over the world. In the near term, there are other changes afoot in the IT talent market from skyrocketing demand for open source talent to the complete reconsidering of the key IT leadership roles.

                              Browsers have had players for a long time, but the story is different with the video encoder and streaming. Now, in almost any browser of the latest version, we can find modules for encoding, streaming, decoding, and playback. These functions are available through the JavaScript API, and the implementation is called Web Real Time Communications or WebRTC. This library built into browsers can do quite a lot: capture video from a built-in, virtual or USB camera, compress it with H.264, VP8, and VP9 codecs, and send it to the network via SRTP protocol; i.e., it functions as a software streamer video encoder. As a result, we see a browser that has something similar to ffmpeg or gstreamer, compresses video well, streams on RTP, and plays video streams.
