In this article series, we embark on a journey through the realm of custom React hooks, discovering their immense potential for elevating your development projects. Our focus today is on the "useArray" hook, one of the many carefully crafted hooks available in the collection of React custom hooks.
In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital entertainment, the year 2023 has witnessed a profound transformation in Video On Demand (VOD) Over-The-Top (OTT) platforms. These platforms have redefined how audiences access and consume content, introducing cutting-edge technologies and innovative features that have revolutionized the entertainment industry.
Embracing Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
In 2023, VOD OTT platforms have embraced AR and VR technologies to provide viewers with immersive and interactive experiences. Users can now step into virtual worlds, interact with characters, and actively participate in the content they are watching, transcending the boundaries of traditional passive viewing.
Imagine exploring an ancient civilization through the eyes of a protagonist, feeling the thrill of an adrenaline-pumping car chase, or even interacting with virtual avatars of celebrities and influencers. The integration of AR and VR into VOD OTT platforms has ushered in a new era of interactive and experiential entertainment.
Personalization: The Heart of the VOD Experience
Powered by advanced artificial intelligence (AI), VOD OTT platforms have taken personalization to new heights. By analyzing user behavior, preferences, and viewing habits, these platforms deliver tailor-made content recommendations, ensuring that viewers find exactly what they love without extensive searching.
This level of personalization ensures that users are presented with content that resonates with their tastes, creating a seamless and enjoyable content discovery experience. By removing the need for extensive searching, VOD OTT platforms have become the go-to destination for viewers seeking highly relevant and engaging content.
When developing functional digital products, especially at the preliminary stages (from MVP to alpha versions) many teams use the «technology first» principle. This means a minimum of user convenience, a maximum of engineering competence. When evaluating the potential of a product, further efforts are already in the direction of creating ergonomic visitor paths, design and more. However, here lies the catch - since not two clients or a prospective investor can evaluate the entire user route, touch it with their hands and make sure that the system works, you can lose both clients and partners.

In my previous article, I showed you how to deploy your project to Firebase and use it for free. Now, let’s explore additional benefits of Firebase. In the upcoming article, I will show you how to set up a custom domain name for your project and utilize a free SSL certificate from Firebase.

In this post, I describe how to use MemoryCache and track lifetime of entities in .NET applications.
In this article, we will look at a way to give the user the ability to upload any files, such as textures. And let's touch on the topic of launching JS functions from C# within Unity. As a result, we will get a script that, by calling just one function, will open a window for selecting files.
In this article I have described problems I have faced during integration Apache Camel with Spring Boot Actuator Prometheus for collecting metrics and my solution to solve this problem (which I haven't found over the internet).
In the comment sections of our articles about our server there are often users who say: "Why would you jump through so many hoops, when you can do the same with a single line of code in FFmpeg!?"
In the first part of You don't know Redis, I built an app using Redis as a primary database. For most people, it might sound unusual simply because the key-value data structure seems suboptimal for handling complex data models.
In practice, the choice of a database often depends on the application’s data-access patterns as well as the current and possible future requirements.
Now I need to extend the Q&A board with registration/login functionality.
I will use Redis again. There are two reasons for that.
Firstly, I want to avoid the extra complexity that comes with adding yet another database.
Secondly, based on the requirements that I have, Redis is suitable for the task.
Important to note, that user registration and login is not always about only email and password handling. Users may have a lot of relations with other data which can grow complex over time.
Despite Redis being suitable for my task, it may not be a good choice for other projects.
Always define what data structure you need now and may need in the future to pick the right database.
As a side hustle, I teach tech recruiters web and software development technologies using plain English. It helps them with understanding job specs and resumes and it makes all of us, tech people, happier.
I run a weekly newsletter and often get feedback from recruiters via email or LinkedIn DMs.
I thought that I could try to collect feedback using the “Reactions” feature just like LinkedIn or Facebook does. It’s not as informative as personalised messages but is a simple feature that may incentivize more people to provide some general feedback.
Either way, it’s worth trying and as a software developer, I can’t wait to implement it.
This tutorial is about implementing a feature that will be used in real life on my project.
In this article we will once again return to the tired topic of webinars and webinar hosting tools. And no, we're not about to code a whole new system for webinar hosting – there are already plenty of those. Instead, we will talk about connecting drawing software to the webinar, so that you could manually draw and broadcast the process.
The popularity of online education is increasing every month. And since there is an increase in popularity, there is an increase in competition and an improvement in quality: many authors of online schools realized that nowadays it's not enough to just make something mediocre using the frontal camera of the iPhone 4. You need to work on the quality of the picture, sound, presentation of material, etc. Not only did the pandemic prove that you can teach salsa and even crochet online, so it also gave an excellent push to improve the materials taught + diversity in the labor market. Moms on maternity leave can rejoice - now you can truly earn a hundred thousand million per second, sitting at home.
During the lockdown, which is now weakening, then becoming more active with a vengeance, a huge number of new professions have appeared. Proficients in creating involving Instagram Stories, course producers, e-learning specialists and other unknown-before-creatures - all of them have mastered a new job that gave them the holy bread in the pandemic. Once you hire a creator of involving Instagram Stories (and let's all hope this person was teached by a professional, not a snake oil salesman), your business grows just with adding some creativity in advertising that will take the heart of even the most fastidious customer. Same works with e-learning specialists: you recruit them and they do all the important tasks from writing articles that will also help in promoting your classes to arranging lessons on your Coursera course. A complete flight of imagination: if it seems to you that some jobs don't exist, then you just don't spend enough time online. In general, online work has become popularized as never and now hardly anyone will say: "He is engaged in some kind of garbage - he makes TikToks but it would be better for him to toil at the factory!". In total, online work has become popularized as never and now hardly anyone will say: "He is engaged in some kind of garbage - he makes TikToks, but it would be better for him to toil at the factory!".

In my previous post, I touched on the point that Redis is more than just an in-memory cache.
Most people do not even consider Redis as a primary database. There are a lot of use cases where Redis is a perfect choice for non-cache related tasks.
In this article, I will demonstrate how I built a fully functional Q&A board for asking and upvoting the most interesting questions. Redis will be used as a primary database.
I will use Gatsby (React), Netlify serverless functions and Upstash Serverless Redis.
Upstash has been a good choice so far and I decided to try it out in a more serious project. I love everything serverless and how it makes things simpler for me.
Serverless will be a great choice for most tasks however you need to know the pros and cons of the tech you are using. I encourage you to learn more about serverless to get the most out of it.
