Programming Vs. Software Development – CodeProject

Introduction

The following is an explanation of the terms “programming” and “Software Development”, as I see it. (They are not necessarily the correct language definitions.)

Programming Creating applications to perform a certain task (tools).
Software Development Creating professional applications that are easy to use, expandable and easy to change. IOW – well designed.

That might sound a bit pretentious, which is certainly not my intention. Let’s make that clear by saying that “programming” can be useful, and is not “stupid” IOW you can e.g. “program” a very complicated, state-of-the-art algorithm. However, when providing an application to the public, one might think of upgrading or re-writing that programmed application to a software development.

Let me finish the introduction by saying that we are all guilty of some form of (dirty) programming at some point. I certainly am not a saint in this regard. We should however, be aware of this so

For both enterprise IT managers and job seekers, a programming language’s popularity matters a great deal.

IT managers often want their teams to use popular programming languages because those languages are more likely to be supported by a variety of platforms and to be around for a long time. In addition, more help is available on the web for popular languages, and it is easier to find developers who know those languages.

Inversely, job seekers want to learn popular languages because it makes it easier to find and keep a job, and right now, it’s even easier to find training resources. Skills in a popular language are less likely to go out of date.

With all those benefits in mind, several

Building a web app with functional programming

This is the last article of this series and will focus on my experience with NixOS.
In a nutshell, NixOS is a operating system based on Linux that provides a declarative package and configuration management.

Please note this article was written upon my experience that started months ago. I know there have been great improvements since and people are making NixOS better everyday. So this post may not be relevant anymore in a near future.

Let me begin by writing why I chose NixOS. When I started PatchGirl, I originally thought I would have my hands full with learning Elm and improving my Haskell knowledge. I hence went with a more traditional Docker approach.

Optimizing adaptive cancer therapy: dynamic programming and evolutionary game theory

1. Background

Intratumoural heterogeneity is increasingly recognized as a cause of metastasis, progression and resistance to therapy [1]. While genetic instability, a hallmark of malignancy [2], can result in this heterogeneity, it is being increasingly understood that eco-evolutionary factors, like selection and clonal interference, can also drive and maintain it [3,4].

While sequencing technologies have enabled increasingly in-depth quantitative understanding of the genetic heterogeneity, relatively little experimental work has sought to directly quantify the eco-evolutionary interactions involved. As more studies come to light showing the efficacy of treatments based on eco-evolutionary trial designs, this lack of quantification is coming into focus.

In line with standard, cell-autonomous growth-based theories, conventional chemotherapy is given to patients at the maximum tolerated doses (MTD): the highest doses that most patients can safely tolerate. Although the MTD-based therapy offers advantages in survival compared to no therapy, cures remain elusive, and side effects can be severe.

Since it first emerged in 2001, Processing has grown into a flourishing community of thousands of artists, designers, makers, and educators. It has redrawn the boundaries of art and technology, affecting communities in contexts as various as the classroom to the art museum to the hackerspace. After 12 years of development and being intensively taught in classrooms, the second edition of the Processing textbook was released in December 2014.

By teaching computer programming with the context of the visual arts, this book has introduced a new literacy with software, enabling designers and artists to create new media for the present, and to imagine future media

The final episode of Westworld’s third season is around the corner, and it’s shaping up to be as intricate and unpredictable as what’s come before.

But that’s not going to stop us from throwing out our theories on what’s going to happen to Dolores, Caleb and the gang.

Will Caleb be the one to take down Serac and lead the host uprising? Will Dolores and Maeve destroy each other? What’s going to happen to the tortured Halores?

Before the season finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO, let’s dive into a couple of theories and predictions.

Programming languages – Wikiquote

The source code for a simple computer program written in the C programming language. When compiled and run, it will give the output “Hello, World!”

A programming language is a machine-readable artificial language designed to express computations that can be performed by a machine, particularly a computer. Programming languages can be used to create programs that specify the behavior of a machine, to express algorithms precisely, or as a mode of human communication.

A – F[edit]

  • Programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute.
  • For twenty years programming languages have been steadily progressing toward their present condition of obesity; as a result, the study and invention of programming languages has lost much of its excitement. Instead, it is now the province of those who prefer to work with thick compendia of details rather than
