Have you ever put so much work behind one article that you deemed it successful, only to see it getting flopped?
Do you always strive for perfection and overthink about where to put the next punctuation, or, searching the right synonym for a particular word?
Are you often a victim of writer’s block and find it difficult to maintain a creative workflow?
If you happen to answer ‘yes’ to any one of the above questions, you’re not alone! I used to struggle in those scenarios, heck I still do, but I’m constantly improving myself by writing more often than before.
Soft green grass sprouts from a wasteland,
Far out there lazes a large heap of sand;
I wonder what lies beyond the polythene ocean and imminent war
For it is my only question that demands an answer!
Snowflakes begin covering the blue roses,
Frosty wind continues bashing the chimney of our houses;
I wonder what lies beyond the depleting cloud and internet fame
For I wanna hear thy voice clear and loud, crying out my name!
Sin it is they say, questioning almighty’s essence,
Death shall signify the only purpose of our existence;
I wonder if I had the chance to see…
Not so long ago, most software was permanently shipped along with their respective hardware, and there was no way to change it. But as technology matured, manufacturers found ways to update the software with additional features on existing hardware.
Now, imagine a future where hardware updates also become a possibility — wouldn’t that be fascinating?
Well, such programmable hardware whose sub-system configurations can be modified even after fabrication, falls under the category of Reconfigurable System. And the most predominant integrated circuit that supports reconfigurable computing is FPGA, an acronym for Field Programmable Gate Array.
FPGA enables you to program product…
Once upon a time, I was so naive and persistent that I counted all natural numbers up to one thousand in one go. That’s a record I never attempted to break, and hopefully won’t in near future. I mean, as a kid that number meant a great deal to me, and it can be quite a big number depending on the context.
So, I’m curious about what a big number means to you — is it a million, a billion, a googol, or a googolplex?
But if you are thinking about infinity, it is not fair. Infinity ain’t a real…
Let’s just admit, quantum particles are weird. The various counterintuitive phenomena such as superposition, entanglement are nothing short of inspiring good science-fiction. Beyond the intricacies, quantum mechanics has been proven to be the most successful theory!
Without quantum physics, we wouldn’t have our modern computers or smartphones.
Now, you may think:
‘Hang on, I thought quantum mechanics is used for quantum computing!’
Yes, you’re right; quantum computing leverages those principles for its computational logic whereas classical computers do not. That doesn’t imply that the components that make up these classical computers do not obey said principles. 🙄
I was 8 years old when I watched the very first game of chess. It was played between my father and my uncle. I learned the rules quite easily and wanted to play next — but couldn’t defeat either of them. It took me near about 100 games against my dad and 2–3 months of practice before I could claim my first victory.
Well, I haven’t become a Grandmaster yet and have no intention of becoming one! 🙃
I’m an okay chess player. By ‘okay’, I mean I’m not obsessed over it, doesn’t intend to make a career out of…
Ever wondered to be a part of the open source community? Well, I always wasn’t all up for it… however, things started to change once I took part in it. Now, if you haven’t heard of ‘open-source’ before, fear not, I was in your shoe a few months earlier!
Back in February 2018, I took part in the Google India Challenge Scholarship and that is when I got my first taste of open-source community. I successfully cleared ‘phase one’ of the program and have received the full scholarship to Udacity’s Front-End Web Developer Nanodegree. If interested, you can check more…
Ever wondered how it feels to have found your passion? Well, I felt it back in September 2017 when I took the courage to know what Web Development really is! In my high school, I got to know a bit about HTML syntax —
<p> Hello World </p>
There was nothing intriguing about that semantic or so it seemed back then. Time went by as college-life starts but the academic curriculum already got me into boredom so I decided to try out new things; It was during this period of discovery that I stumbled upon sites like Udacity, Udemy, freeCodeCamp…
