Let’s say you wanna deploy your app to a host — or other developers wanna try the app in their computer, but you have to make sure your app can run smoothly on a different environment. Before cloud computing is not that common, you can use BASH script to install your app dependencies in host.

Why do I need to mock our API call? Hmm well let’s see some scenarios

  • the API is down — how do you test your code if the API itself is down
  • the API is changed — you know that your code should work, but you don’t know that just now the API just changed is return call. Then, you must change your code to pass the test
  • you gave up — skipping the API call function test and don’t care if the coverage falls down

Well actually, your task is to process the returned API call. And no, no…

Looking back the code when the days I don’t know about Clean Code (or lazy), I having a hard time to re-understand it cause I just randomly assign variables with uninformative names.

Now let’s try to avoid that mistake with Clean Code.

Linus Torvalds creates Git as a Version Control System with speed and efficiency ranging from small to big projects. But first, what is a Version Control System?

Version Control System

Version Control System (VCS) is a software tools that keeps track of every modification to the code. If mistakes happen, VCS can turn back and compare earlier versions of the code to compare and fix their mistakes.

The most used VCS right now is Git, and the reason is that Git is more widely distributed than other VCSs. GitHub and GitLab being the…

“How making a fake user can make our design process easier?”

Yep, that is the expected reaction from reading the title. Creating persona for most people is a hassle in design process, because it is a lengthy and costly process. So why?

In digital industry, every company battling their feature set over others to ensure they are the best in the industry. Choosing the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for application development is crucial and Waterfall SDLC is not effective and fast enough, because the product is always changing and evolving whereas Waterfall is a one time development. We need faster and more flexible SDLC to accommodate business changes and user needs.

Due to that, Kent Back and 16 other authors come up with new ways for software development reflected into four values:

Individuals and Interactions over Processes and Tools,
