The article “Developers Who Use Spaces Make More Money Than Those Who Use Tabs” by David Robinson, is a statistical study that leads us to the conclusion that coders who use spaces for indentation make more money than ones who use tabs. Although this study demonstrates some evidence that developers who use spaces are paid more, his conclusion could improve its logical assumptions to better conclude a correlation.

This study surveyed about 28,000 programmers who provided information about their coding style, experience, profession and salary. Of this surveyed group, 40.7% use tabs and 41.8% use spaces (with 17.5% using both)…

From a Journeyman to a Master, this is what Andrew Hunt and David Thomas help new and current programmers envision as they build a successful portfolio. In chapter one of the text “The Pragmatic Programmer”, it explores strategies for how to be a better communicator and programmer. These strategies cover core topics about taking responsibilities, building and managing a knowledge portfolio, how to critically think and principal social skills. The authors emphasizes the importance of these topics and creates a detailed outline on how to stay relevant as a programmer.

I enjoy the story references and analogies between popular expressions…

Linked Lists provide such a valuable data structure, used in many if not ALL programming software (Python, Java, C++, etc.) which can be used in any fundamental project. The Linked List is very special since it provides the programmer with a data structure that are linked using pointers that contain a reference to another node (an object of any type) in the list. Here is a simple example of a linked list structure:

<Node 1> --> <Node 2> --> <Node 3> --> <Node 4> --> <Node 5> --> ...

Here we read the linked list from left to right, and…

During my senior year in high school, my entire computer science class was split into groups of 4 and were tasked to collect, analyze and identify our school energy consumption for Ontario ecoSchools . This assessment offered an opportunity to get the whole picture on our entire school’s energy use, and create strategies to help reduce electric consumption.

My three other members and I were tasked to create a database that organized the retrieved electrical data. We began our project not knowing where to start, so we came up with a group name ‘T.S.K.K’, as an acronym of our first…

Born in 2000 and attending UTM, my name is Tomasz, and I am a proud Polish student that currently majors in both Computer Science and Statistics. I enjoy YouTube and other information-packed medias that provide me with tough concepts and the ability to learn something new each day. Being involved in the computer science and statistics community, I love to engage, learn and discuss my opinions more on the subject of interest.

Throughout the last couple of years I have noticed that is is very important to surround yourselves with people that wish great success for you, and because of…
