We know that GitHub is a highly used software that is typically used for version control. We use it day in and day out to manage and develop projects or contributing to Open Source. We need to follow a workflow which is easier to teach and follow, both of which result in a more consistent application. To put it simply, a workflow is how you get the work done.

In this article we will see what is the Github Flow that we need to follow.

So, let’s understand what Github Flow does and its usage.

Github flow is a standard…

Challenges with Open Source

Until now we have seen the importance and how Open Source play a vital role in today’s world, if you haven’t read our article about the Open Source then you can find the details here. Today we will see what some of the common issues we face while working with the Open Source Ecosystem.

It could be in terms of Licensing, security concerns or lack of support etc., in this article we will see all these factors and many more in brief and how to handle them.

Licensing

Even today most of us do not understand the licensing obligations that goes…

Libraries

One of the major reasons for using these libraries is to expedite the development process, i.e., develop an amazing application without any unnecessary or additional efforts.

These libraries provide developers with basic pre-written codes and other important elements that can be used instantly rather than performing these tasks from scratch.

Lets, see some of the guidelines/best practices to be followed

  • Firstly, there is no defined set of standards or hard and fast rule available for this. However if you follow a structure it could make things easier and clearer.
  • Always stick to the goal as to why you initially started…

Reusability is one of the most common and frequently used buzzwords in software development. Developers are building components based on collections of reusable components, recently most of the technologies started to equip themselves with this function.

But the question always lingers as to when do you spend the time to make a thing reusable? How do we really build one? or how do I choose one that caters my needs.

This article as some general guidelines for thinking about reusability and its history.

History of Reusable component?

Below is the definition from Wikipedia about Reusability.

In computer science and software engineering, reusability is the…

Mobile devices are evolving into increasingly sophisticated and general-purpose computers and this has led to the development of a variety of platforms and operating systems in the mobile space.

Everyone would like to create mobile applications and bring their innovate ideas into solutions and sometimes you get overwhelmed choosing which platforms to use and the list of available platforms available.

Today let’s solve this by analyzing the various mobile platforms available in the market and which one to use and when to use it.

First let’s understand the types of app that can be build.

  • Native apps
  • Hybrid apps
  • Web…

Phone Usage

Today usage of mobile phones have increased in extensively when compared to that of computers. Mobile phone usage is taking a lead to a computer that it is small in size, light in weight, and can operate with minimum power.

These mobile phones are not limited to speaking only, it is used in making video, recording information and transmitting it to a phone or a computer.

Mobile owners worldwide will increase to 7.33 billion by 2023. The number of mobile phone users in the world will increase significantly in the next four years, as predicted by Statista.

Collaboration is the key for a successful software development. It works best when code can be understood and contributed to by many.

We will discuss and see the factors that makes a code contribution successful and we all rely on and offer some strategies for encouraging contributions on our own projects.

Before we start understanding some of the best practices, let’s see the types of Open-source Users.

  • Collaborator
  • Consumer
  • Maintainer

No matter which project or language you pick the below mentioned practices can be applied. …

Today we will see some of the commonly used tools to increase your productivity and quality of your development and the overall workflow. Whether you are building your application using React, Angular, Ember, Vue etc. The art of efficient choice of your tools aids you to tackle different problems.

These days developers need to develop applications in both Android and iOS devices and are put in spot to develop an user interface that can be used across both platforms, while maintaining the look and feel. …

Distributed Operating System

From 1945, when the modern computer era began, until about 1985, computers were large and expensive. Moreover, for lack of a way to connect them, these computers operated independently from one another.

Later invention of high-speed computer networks, LAN connecting a smaller area in such a way that small amounts of information can be transferred in a few microseconds or so.

Followed by WAN which allow hundreds of millions of machines all over the earth to be connected at speeds varying from tens of thousands to hundreds of millions bps, and sometimes even faster.

Plug computers and other so-called nano…

In this article we will see the importance of Github (version tool) for Open-Source contribution and the best practices to be followed while creating or contributing to Open-Source.

Github

GitHub hosts your source code projects in a variety of different programming languages and keeps track of the various changes made to every iteration.

It is all about the collaborative effort of the community, in reviewing, improving, and deriving new ideas from the uploaded code. It’s definitely something worth looking into!

Some importance features that make Github one of the best and a go to tool.

  1. Easy to use and best for…
