  How can Big Data make the impossible, possible?

Today technology has come to play a big role in how things are managed and run. In almost all spheres and extents of life. Imagine trying to find the best Italian restaurant, somewhere in the US and within a mile radius of your location. If you have a smart phone and internet connectivity, all it would take a few taps on the device screen. The real purpose of big data is situational awareness, powered by a wide database of information and statistics. It has the potential to impact the profitabil...


  Why do I need a debugger?

  When I begin to learn a new programming language, I will try and master the debugger for it as early as possible. For example, in 2013, while I touched the Go, there seems only gdb for use. Although gdb itself is not a good choice (From Debugging Go Code with GDB): As a consequence, although GDB can be useful in some situations, it is not a reliable debugger for Go programs, particularly heavily concurrent ones. But at that time there was no other choice. So after delve&nb...

  You should publish your contributions of Open Source, even it’s not required

Although many Open Source projects don’t require you publish the modifications of them, I still propose you should make the changes open. The reasons are as following: (1) For other people: the out-of-box Open Source projects save your time and money, and you get benefit from them. You should not only take, but also need to give! Only if everyone shares his code, document, or whatever related, the Open Source projects can grow up healthy. (2) For yourself: You release your code can actuall...

  Resolve SystemStackError issue when resolving IP address in Ruby

In Ruby, Resolv is the default DNS resolution implementation. It can be used to resolve IP address of a hostname. To use it, one just needs to require 'resolv' in the code. But sometimes, a user would want to check /etc/hosts first or some other mechanisms to resolve an IP address. In this case, one can require 'resolv-replace' and then replace the default DNS resolvers with customized DNS resolvers. For example, using resolv-replace, one would write require 'resolv-replace' Resolv::DefaultResol...

  Configure static IP for Linux

When a Linux server is running, it has to have an IP so that other machines can talk to it. It is often desired that the server would own a static IP so that every time other machines want to connect to it, the same IP address would be used. This is extremely useful when there are virtual machines installed on a host machine where the virtual machine would start and stop now and then.  To configure static IP address for a Linux server, the /etc/network/interfaces needs to be updated. Assumi...
