Clean Go

Hey guys, I recently dove into 'Clean Code' by Robert C. Martin and found some valuable insights. The book is originally in Java, but I decided to reinterpret the principles in Go. Here's my take on the clean code concepts and how they can improve our coding practices.

1. Clean Code

The gist: Clean code is more than just working code; it's code that other developers can easily read, understand, and modify.

This is a translated and adopted article I wrote for the Aha'22 (30 May 2022) conference. It describes an approach to a marketplace prices optimisation. Here I've outlined some important definitions and tried to define the scopes and roles of ML, algorithms, and humans in optimal pricing. Although the article covers rather basic things, still, you can find out some new formulas and ideas, because these basics are somewhat "well-known only in a very closed clubs", and besides, the real gem found here is the detailed recipe for ML engineers how to build optimal pricing systems.

PIM or MDM: which system is better for retail?

Reading time2 min
Views764

Effective data management is a critical aspect in retail. You have to manage information about customers, products, services, staff, materials, and so on. You should have a source that you will trust. And you need to store, process, moderate, and administer data in this system. 

Until recently, retailers only knew MDM - Master Data Management. A traditional MDM system is a system that knows about different data sources. It contains the “golden standard” of data. 

Imagine that your stores have one customer information, your online store has another, and your marketing services have third data. MDM system collects all these types of information in a single source. The system can find the same clients, spelled differently, and eliminate errors in the data based on different algorithms.

The evolution of MDM systems has led to the emergence of highly specialized master systems. Modern business does not need to implement a heavy MDM to manage only product data. There are PIM systems for this task.

You need a system where you can manage and exchange customer, partner, and order data. Often the back-office of a marketplace consists of a complex of systems. However, we have been working with marketplaces for many years and have come to the conclusion that the integration between back-office systems should be seamless. At least between 6 fundamental parts. Thus, we have created the Scallium platform, where the business manages the processes of the marketplace.

Considering ever-rising e-commerce sales, which hit $29 trillion last year, companies can no longer neglect online presence. Many of them have already changed the way they work and transformed from simple online stores to marketplaces bringing more sales and opportunities.

Those who’ve chosen the path of transformation or want to build a marketplace are probably seeking for experienced service providers to get some help.

Since there are hundreds of development companies all over the world, I decided to research the market and narrow down the circle of providers you might want to consider for partnership.

To compile this list the following factors were considered:

  • Overall number of customer reviews on such reputable platforms as Clutch, Upwork, GoodFirms, App Futura, Extract.co, IT Firms.
  • Overall score of those reviews.
  • Presence of Fortune 500 clients in the public domain.
  • Presence of industry awards in the public domain (e.g. Global Sourcing Award, Top B2B Global Leaders, Best of the Global Outsourcing 100).
  • Team size (bigger companies come first).
  • Year of fundation (mature companies have more trust).
  • Number of offices (more is better).
  • Number of brand mentions over the web (only companies with 1,500+ mentions are listed).

Open source tool for intent-based search quality validation

No matter how cool your search solution is, without a reliable way of testing it you will not be able to do any improvement without breaking something valuable.

Even a tiny increase in overall search result quality might have a noticeable effect on conversion rate. Naturally, you can use exit-rate to judge if your search needs improvements and do required adjustments, but will you be able to make sure those changes are safe? What if improved relevancy for a specific category breaks search for several other categories?

Moreover, high exit-rate means no matter what you are going to do, the problem has taken place, so dozens of customers already didn’t manage to find what they were up to. Basically, the only way to proceed is to have a reliable search quality validation approach.

Zero-knowledge proofs/arguments are an emerging cryptographic technology that promises to bring us closer to the Holy Grail of blockchain: providing data privacy and auditability.

Potential applications for zero-knowledge include, but are not limited to:


Another application for zero-knowledge proofs is helping blockchains scale. ZKPs allow for the “compressing” of computations for blockchain transactions without sacrificing security.

In this article, we describe how zero-knowledge (specifically, Bulletproofs) can be applied to build a privacy-focused service using Bitfury’s Exonum platform.
