In this post we will explore what I consider the most significant language change in C++17. I call it the most significant because it changes the way you design your resource-managing types and how you think about initialization. It is … Continue reading Read the rest

In this short post I wanted to share links to three online services that I use for testing different aspects of C++ and C++ compilers. https://wandbox.org/ — this allows you to compile and observe the output of programs compiled in … Continue reading Read the rest

Let’s start with the problem. I want to check whether a program received a text message that consists of four consecutive zeroes. Not ‘0’, but the numeric zero. I will create a constant std::string representing the special sequence and compare … Continue reading Read the rest

This is a basic python string and string manipualtion tutorial. Strings are a special type of a python class. As objects, in a class, you can call methods on string objects using the .methodName() notation.

For building quick APIs in Python, I have mostly depended on Flask. Recently I came across a new API framework for Python 3 named “API Star” which seemed really interesting to me for several reasons. Firstly the framework embraces modern Python features like type hints and asyncio. And then it goes ahead and uses these features to provide awesome development experience for us, the developers. We will get into those features soon but before we begin, I would like … Read the rest

First, let’s get those terms out of our way. The REST acronym stands for Representational State Transfer,
which is an architectural design. Usually when we use the term RESTful, we are referring to an application that
implements the REST architectural design. API stands for Application Programming Interface, which is a software

I have already published a yearly report which covers all of 2017
but also some of my January 2018 work, so I’ll try to keep this short.

After collating the various ideas that people have been giving me during the Kickstarter campaign, I have decided to firm up my table of contents. I had already planned to cover 80-90% or more of what was in ReportLab’s user guide, but in more depth, as I thought most of those topics should be covered in book form. The rest of the book was going to be some HOW-TO type chapters and other Python packages that work with PDFs.
