For those who have been programing with Structural or Object Oriented languages functions like Map, Filter, and Reduce might be new to you. They were to me until I started learning more about Functional programming in a Python course that talked about them.
I will explain how they work using the Python’s syntax.
Boyer-Moore-Horspool is the fastest way to search for substrings. If you are working on a searchbars, an auto-corrector, or Big Data and you are not using this algorithm, you are wasting CPU cycles and your time. What is Boyer-Moore-Horspool Algorithm ? Boyer-Moore-Horspool is an algorithm for finding substrings into strings. This algorithm compares each characters […]
When booking travel you’ll need to know what Millennials are searching for. They are not interested in what your website says unless it is also what they want.
You may be losing business if you are not painfully aware of how these people decide to travel.
Millennials look for new experiences, but the fear of going on a budget without having the opportunity to spend their money on what they really want to do is what haunts them the most.
People remember at most three things. I can name three of Nearsoft’s values. Or three WorldBlu principles. Or a three word slogan.
Most often we only remember one thing, if we remember anything at all.
Most companies want dedicated people who work and act as owners, who are responsible, accountable, and motivated.
The software business has some real challenges finding good talent. There are five job openings for every one software engineer available.
In the contest for talented software developers, companies try to find unicorns. If it’s going to be a contest, might as well go for the bestest of the best.
Team: “to come together to achieve a common goal.”
There are a lot of great things about teamwork, but there are cons, too. In particular, where do you as individual fit in without losing your soul, so to speak.
Where do you draw that line? I found mine through bread making.
Test-Driven Development is a software development methodology/technique that involves the creation of tests first, even before the application code exists.
But… how does it even work?
Don’t worry, keep reading. Hopefully afterwards you will be tempted to try it yourself (spoiler alert: it will reduce the number of failures).
We’ve all been in the situation where the
LIKE operator in SQL isn’t good enough for the needs of the task at hand. The
LIKE operator lacks the ability to find strings that are similar but not quite the same. This is when the Levenshtein distance algorithm comes in handy.
I didn’t even know about this algorithm until I ran into this situation. It took me a bit, but I finally figured out how to put it to work.
In my experience there are specific characteristics that can help advance as a developer in the travel industry.
Here are the five that I think are most important.
Travel is an industry that is always changing and evolving. New technologies are opening new opportunities for startups, organizations, and large corporations that are building software solutions.
However, the changes don’t stop there, the way travelers behave is also changing and evolving. TechTravel companies need to keep and eye on the needs, motivations and new behaviors of travelers. Digital nomads, millennials, and female solo travelers are just some examples of a new generation of travelers we are just figuring out.
In this episode you’ll learn about the top travel behavioral trends the team at Tripscout has identified by speaking with hundreds of travelers.
