Hackathons could be very intimidating and stressful. The key to getting better is doing simple projects. In this article, we will look at an example of a web app that can be used for sharpening your skills when you prepare for a hackathon. We will use a powerful Google API based on Machine Learning and apply the following technologies: ASP.NET, HTML, Docker, Heroku, and Git.
How many of you have used third-party libraries when writing code? It's a catchy question. Without third-party libraries the development of some products would be delayed for a very, very long time. One would have to reinvent the wheel to solve each problem. When you use third-party libraries you still stumble upon some pitfalls in addition to obvious advantages. Recently PVS-Studio for C# has also faced one of the deficiencies. The analyzer could not finish analyzing a large project for a long time. It was due to the use of the SymbolFinder.FindReferencesAsync method from the Roslyn API in the V3083 diagnostic.
In this article, I’d like to talk about the problems I faced while integrating an API for the HTTP protocol and share my experience in solving them.
- REST vs Non REST architecture
- Ignoring Header Accept: application/json
- Mixing JSON keys case types
- Different response to the same request

Getting confused with so many options to choose among Sendbird and Twilio competitors.
Then, let’s have some clarity with a detailed discussion over the feature comparison to go for the best Twilio and Sendbird alternative.
Voice calling plays a crucial role in personal and professional communication. Be it a friendly conversation among classmates or a business deal between companies – voice calling has been the most easy, convenient, and affordable way to communicate for decades. Thus, communication corporations and developers have brought in innovative ways to integrate their Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and invent newer ways of voice communication.
This year, each of us seeks a special way to pass the time. I am writing a book, for example. A book about one thing I love dearly: the API. (You may read who am I and what expertise got in APIs in my LinkedIn profile.)
The book is distributed for free under a CC-BY-NC license. Enjoy!
Development of “YaRyadom” (“I’mNear”) application under the control of Vk Mini Apps. Part 1 .Net Core
|Video conferencing App / Country||Hangouts Meet||Houseparty||Ms Teams||Zoom|
The convenience of these apps is defined by their rich-features: video calling, ability to share screens, and interact in real-time.
2019 was a very busy year in terms of conferences. Our team could leave for whole weeks on business trips. As you know, the conference is perfect time to share knowledge. In addition to giving talks and telling many interesting things at our booth, we also learned a lot from communicating with conference participants and speakers. So at the Joker 2019 conference in fall, a talk from Dalia Abo Sheasha «Migrating beyond Java 8» inspired us to implement a new diagnostic rule that allows us to detect incompatibilities in the Java SE API between different versions of Java. This is what we will talk about.
The onslaught of data security breaches today is relentless, with thousands of major breaches each year and 50 percent more breaches in 2019 vs. 2018, according to a report by Risk Based Security. The costs for each breach have burgeoned as well, with the average cost of a data breach at about $3.92 million.
Securing data from breaches not only spares bottom line and publicity, it's now also a basic legal requirement to comply with rapidly growing data privacy laws.
While organizations have long had to comply with industry-specific standards, such as HIPAA in healthcare and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), you now also face new consumer privacy regulations. Including:
As much of the world works from home amid COVID-19 lockdowns and ‘shelter in place’ restrictions, video call and conferencing apps have experienced a significant surge in user numbers. From top business executives to scientists and government officials, the employed across industries and roles have moved operations online and onto video conferencing apps such as Zoom.
The dark side of this change is that video calls have also become a playground for phishermen and ‘Zoombombers’. This development was recently experienced by Zoom users, who took to the internet to allege that Zoom vulnerability windows were compromised and ‘Zoom is not safe to use’.
In March alone, the number of Zoom users saw a whopping 535% increase, with its iPhone app being the most downloaded for weeks at a stretch. However, reports of security disasters and Zoom privacy issues saw the brand’s credibility snowballing at an alarming pace. Despite the company CEO stepping up to the plate and ramping up privacy measures, professionals continue to debate on whether the Zoom privacy and security issues, that risked data of millions, can be quickly resolved.
Video call and video conference software allows online messages for voice meetings, video conferences, and discussion groups, which includes features such as converse, screen division, and video recording.
This means that almost 2 million newbies without any actual trading experience and lacking any specialized software for trading/position analysis have entered the market.
Simplest thing in application affects their interactivity greatly. For example, even the number of notifications, as well as the time at which they will be sent, have a strong impact. According to a survey, 60% of respondents have a preference for what time of day they receive notifications.
This indicates that the way an app will communicate with users will have an immense effect on its success or failure. Do you know what are the factors that affect the interactivity of your app? Apart from that, how can you make an app interactive?
Have you ever wanted to have a swagger documentation for your express API based on annotations? I have. And unfortunately didn’t find any way of doing it without having to manually create a
swagger.json file. My wish was simple as this: I want to have a clean express app with multiple endpoints and I want to keep swagger documentation for every endpoint close to the endpoint implementation, not in a separate file.
Maybe I’m just lacking some google skills, but I decided that it’d be much easier for me to create such a tool. And here it is: mgr-swagger-express

And the business needs either a large staff of operators or a voice communication automating solution. We are offering a solution to reduce workload and costs (and will barely affect your developers’ busyness).
Today, geolocation and geo-positioning have turned into a state that we did not dream about 60 years ago, during the first thoughts about creating an Internet network.
This article was prepared thanks to the IPGeolocation.io
Cartography has turned into a miracle — from insanely large sheets of paper to what fits in the palm of your hand.
Today, maps are used not only to search for a cultural center in Paris, but to be able to find everything:
- nearest hotel
- pharmacy or hospital
- grocery store
- university or school
- Pink Concert venue in San Francisco
The transformation of technology will not stop there. It will be better and more accurate than ever.
Evolution in time
Let's see how the evolution of geolocation began. The journey of this phenomenon begins in ancient times.
Excursion into the past
Being a top-rated professional network, LinkedIn, unfortunately, for free accounts, has such a limitation as Commercial Use Limit (CUL). Most likely, you, same as me until recently, have never encountered and never heard about this thing.
The point of the CUL is that when you search people outside your connections/network too often, your search results will be limited with only 3 profiles showing instead of 1000 (100 pages with 10 profiles per page by default). How ‘often’ is measured nobody knows, there are no precise metrics; the algorithm decides it based on your actions – how frequently you’ve been searching and how many connections you’ve been adding. The free CUL resets at midnight PST on the 1st of each calendar month, and you get your 1000 search results again, for who knows how long. Of course, Premium accounts have no such limit in place.
However, not so long ago, I’ve started messing around with LinkedIn search for some pet-project, and suddenly got stuck with this CUL. Obviously, I didn’t like it that much; after all, I haven’t been using the search for any commercial purposes. So, my first thought was to explore this limit and try to bypass it.
