Software Engineer Reacts YouTube Series

This is a new series that I started where I pick a popular app and i react to how it was developed and try to guess the technologies that have been implemented. What requests do the application make? inspect the results and try to guess why the devs decide to show the results in this way versus another. If you are interested in user experience and software engineering consider checking this series out.

The first episode is Instagram! Enjoy guys let me know what you think about this and do suggest another app! Want to watch more Software Engineering Reacts videos?

What is a Non-Repeatable Read?

In IGeometry we discuss interesting software engineering topics by example. In this video we explain isolation, the third property of a relational database. Problems arise from isolation are many, and we discuss another one which is Non-Repeatable. We illustrate this using instagram as example .

What Comes First, User Experience or Software Architecture?

Do you architect the system (Database, Services, etc.) first and then build the user experience for your end user clients (Mobile Apps, Web Apps)? Or Are you the kind of engineer that design the user experience first and let it drive the rest of system? We talk about advantages and disadvantages of both!

We are using Instagram as a use case in our analysis.

Stay Awesome

readAllText on Nodejs with Promise

Coming from .NET background and recently started working with Javascript and Nodejs I really miss the File.IO.readAllText in .NET  I find it really useful when reading small texts. The fs module in Nodejs is OK but I couldn't find a promise version of the fs so I wrote a quick boiler plate. Been a while since I posted any code in this blog. Here goes
