Computers touch all most every aspect of our lives today. We take the way they work for granted and the unsung heroes who built the technology, protocols, philosophies, and circuit boards, patched them all together - and sometimes willed amazingness out of nothing. Not in this podcast. Welcome to the History of Computing. Let's get our nerd on!

Having a ubiquitous language within your organization means that when someone on the developer team refers to “the foo bar,” the people on the design team, the service team and all the other teams, know exactly what they mean. Although a general understanding of the term is the most important aspect of ubiquitous language, we’d recommend not using …
 
As with many a programming language, ruby was originally designed as a teaching language - to teach programming to students at universities.

With over 2.6 billion active users ad 4.6billion active accounts email has become a significant means of communication in the business, professional, academic, and personal worlds.

Many people who were getting their work rejected starting as a kid would get discouraged. Doubt would start to creep into their mind and they'd wonder if they'll ever be good enough. Add in moving several times and not being sure where you fit in, having a full time job, and general life complications and it's easy to give up. But Yoon Ha Lee overc…
 
One way to delve deep into the ancient history of the Earth - or other planetary bodies for that matter - is to examine the magnetism recorded by rocks. Kind of like a fossilised magnetic fingerprint. But trying to do this in an environment where another magnetic field exists (i.e. everywhere on Earth!) is pretty challenging. Enter the 'magneticall…

Teleprinters, sometimes referred to as teletypes based on the dominance of the Tyletype corporation in their hayday, are devices that send or receive written transmissions over a wire or over radios. Those have evolved over time to include text and images. And while it may seem as though their development corresponds to the telegraph, that’s true o…
 
It’s human nature to make everything we do competitive.

I always get annihilated by kids who had voices that were cracking, but I played! Humans have been competing in sports for thousand…

Simply put, anti-goals are a way to wo…

Online communication channels are popular, to say the least. For instance, there are 187 million active Twitter users per day alone.

But what about when it comes to emoji? Accordi…

Working longer hours does not result in greater or higher quality output. Rather, it is often how we spend our time outside of working hours that plays the biggest role in our performance from nine to five.

And once upon a time, …

The pandemic causing us to shift so hard toward working from home …
