Reading Time: 3 minutes Introduction An IDE or integrated development environment is a software application that combines, in one place, all the tools needed for a software development project. On a more basic level, IDEs provide interfaces for users to write code, organize text groups, and automate programming redundancies. Here we will talk about IntelliJ IDEA, one of the popular IDE in the market which has advantages over others Continue Reading
Reading Time: 3 minutes In this article, we will look at the differences between open-source software vs free software vs freeware software. While growing up and trying out various software on our computer, we often come across the terms like free software, freeware, opensource, etc but we never pay much attention to it. A lot of people think that freeware software is the same as free software and they Continue Reading
Reading Time: 3 minutes What is a Version Control System (VCS)? Version Control Systems are basically a category of software tools that helps in saving and identifying the changes made in the files of computer programs, documents, or other collections of information so that it becomes easier to track those changes even after a long period of time. It becomes more interesting and useful for the developers because revisions Continue Reading
Reading Time: 3 minutes HashiCorp Vault is a secret management tool which provides a secure and reliable way to store secrets like passwords, access token, secret API key etc.
There are applications that need to interact with third party services and for that it needs various credentials. There are scenarios in which we need different credentials to process different requests. So, where will you store them? Can you really hard-code them and publish them to your sub-versioning tool? Ofcourse not. This is not a recommendable approach.
Reading Time: 3 minutes What is RabbitMQ and Why we should use it? We often get this question in our mind when we look to any project and see RabbitMQ in its technical stack. So, this blog will give you a brief introduction to RabbitMQ. RabbitMQ is a message-broker whose basic functionality is to accept and forward the message. It is an open-source enterprise messaging system modeled on the Advanced Continue Reading

This is the best possible way to find, use and share the application built to run over Kubernetes. Helm is one of the incubating projects in CNCF family The latest version of Helm is maintained by the CNCF – Continue Reading
Reading Time: 4 minutes One of the challenges faced by distributed systems is how to keep the replicas consistent with each other. Maintaining consistency requires balancing availability and partitioning. Fortunately, Apache Cassandra lets us tune this balancing according to our needs. In this blog, we are going to see how we can tune consistency levels during reads and writes to achieve faster reads and writes. Before digging more about Continue Reading
Reading Time: 3 minutes Kubernetes is a portable, extensible open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that facilitates both declarative configuration and automation. It has a large, rapidly growing ecosystem. Kubernetes builds upon a decade and a half of experience that Google has with running production workloads at scale, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community. Kubernetes services, support, and tools are widely available. A few months Continue Reading
Reading Time: 2 minutes Logistic Regression, a predictive analysis, is mostly used with binary variables for classification and can be extended to use with multiple classes as results also. We have already studied the algorithm in deep with this blog. Today we will be using KSAI library to build our logistic regression model. Setup
Reading Time: 3 minutes In the previous series of blogs, we have seen how we can do error handling in Scala. In this blog, we will explore yet another way of handling exceptions using the functional style of programming. Scalactic is a library which provides an “Either with attitude” named Or, designed for functional error handling. Or gives you more convenient chaining of map and flatMap calls (and for Continue Reading
