MachineX: Association Rule Learning with KSAI

In many of my previous blogs, I have posted about Association Rule Learning, what it’s about and how it is performed. In this blog, we are going to use Association Rule Learning to actually see it in action, and for this purpose, we are going to use KSAI, a machine learning library purely written in Scala. So, let’s begin. Adding KSAI to your project You Continue Reading

Scala : Proxy Design Pattern

Hi Everyone! In our previous blogs, we have discussed Decorator design pattern and Adapter design pattern. Now, its time to discuss another Structural design pattern i.e. the Proxy design pattern. We will implement the same EUGDPR problem using the Proxy design pattern, which we implemented using the Adapter design pattern in our previous blog. Problem Statement: Earlier, in many applications, all the user-specific details like Continue Reading

Adapter design pattern with Scala

Hi Readers! In our last blog, we have discussed the Decorator design pattern with Scala. In this blog, we will explore the Adapter design pattern. We will also implement this pattern in Scala. Earlier, in many applications, all the user-specific details like username, IP addresses, phone number, etc were logged directly without scrambling it. But after new data protection law i.e. EUGDPR, it is now Continue Reading

Functional Programming: A Paradigm

It’s surprisingly hard to find a consistent definition of functional programming. But I think you can define FP with just two statements: 1. FP is about writing software applications using only pure functions. 2. When writing FP code you only use immutable values. Hence, Functional programming is a way of writing software applications using only pure functions and immutable values. Now, let us understand the Continue Reading

Back2Basics: Understanding Partially Applied Functions

In this blog, we are going to talk about Partially applied functions and its use case. Before starting, first, we will emphasize that though Partial functions and Partially applied functions sound similar they are different from each other. To understand Partial Functions refer. What is function application? Applying a function is called calling a function. When we pass all arguments of the function, we can Continue Reading

CuriosityX: RDDs – The backbone of Apache Spark

In our last blog, we tried to understand about using the spark streaming to transform and transport data between Kafka topics. After reading that many of the readers asked us to give a brief description of RDDs in Spark which we used. So, this blog is totally dedicated to the RDDs in Spark. So let’s start with the very basic question that comes to our mind Continue Reading

Decorator Design Pattern

Hi everyone! In this blog, we are going to discuss decorator design patterns with Scala. Let’s say I own a pizza outlet and we know that everyone has a very different taste and so there can be a various combination of toppings. If I have n number of toppings, so i will have to create p(n) = 2 * p(n-1) + 1 Subclasses. p(0) = Continue Reading

Back2Basics: Scala Extractors in Detail

While working with the Case Classes closely, we have a very concise way to decompose an entity using pattern matching. The potent example is pattern matching on the Some(x) and None, as most of us know they are case class and case object respectively. The potential question that we have is do we have a provision to use similar patterns without having an associated case Continue Reading

ScalaFP: Firsthand With Scala-Cats Monads – #1

In the previous post, we had a look at the reasons behind the monads and how monads can help us design the programs in a functional style. Now we are going to explore some of the monads which are frequently used in the applications but not available within the Scala predefined libraries. We will be exploring the monads which are provided by the scala-cats functional Continue Reading

ScalaFP: Let’s Find The Reasons Behind Monads.

Monads in Functional Programming play an important role but they mostly confuse the beginners. One of the reasons for the confusion is that they mostly have a knowledge of imperative style programming, where they have no idea about function composition and its importance. In the terms of functional programming, the composition is the root where we have a set(Z) and we compose the elements of Continue Reading

Code Combat II : The Code Battle For The Vanguard Continues…

“If you can dream it, you can do it. ”  -Walt Disney For some coding is a job. For some, it is an exercise. But for us folks here at Knoldus, it’s a Passion. So in order to bring a twist in the daily work schedule, Knoldus held an overnight Hackathon competition within the organization on 18th May 2018 which presented an opportunity for every Knolder(employees Continue Reading

map(), flatMap() on Futures & Options in scala

In this blog, we would be looking at how map() and flatMap() operations work with Option and Future of scala, literally speaking both Futures and Options are very effective features of scala, A Future lets us have a value from some task on a differnt thread and Option provides us a hand from null of java as using null in scala is seen a very bad approach in Continue Reading

Do you think your code is Perfect? Well, Think again.

“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.” – Martin Fowler “I can code.” I always say to myself. But do others think the same? Is my code good enough for people to understand? Do other people think “Damn I wish I could write such code.?” –  that’s the main question I always had in Continue Reading
