Today, we’re going to take a look at functional programming and I’ll show you why it’s one of the best ways to write thread-safe and readable code and how it differs from your more traditional imperative programming.
Introduction You’ve likely used UUIDs in projects before and assumed them to be unique. Today, we’ll take a look at the main aspects of the implementation and understand why UUIDs are practically unique, though an incredibly small potential for duplication exists. The modern-day implementation of UUIDs can be
Anyone with any programming experience understands that computers are deterministic machines. If you provide the same input, you’ll always get the same output. That’s why having computers generate something by chance is trickier than it may seem. Computers use random numbers for everything from cryptography to gambling, generative
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at daemons. We’ll understand exactly what they are, how they’re implemented, and the scope of their responsibility. Overview Simply put, a daemon (pronounced dee-mon) is an intentionally orphaned background process. Additionally, daemons are detached from the terminal in which
