Dirty Read Phenomena - (Explained by Example)

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 the first one which is Dirty read. We illustrate this using instagram as example .

Scalability in REST API (Explained by Example)

In this video we explain how stateless REST API (Representational state transfer) is scalable. We try to explain this by example. We bring the original problem of coupled client/server architecture and how REST API solved it by de-coupling the client from server. This is called Separation of Concerns or SoC and what makes rest truly Platform Independent.

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?

Why is JSON popular?

I asked my self this question before and I never understood the reason why JSON was popular until I actually worked with JSON and javascript. For someone who worked with XML and C#, I really appreciated JSON. The beauty of reading JSON of Javascript is so satisfying. Here is a podcast enjoy.

git by Example

Some of you guys asked me to do a video on git and how to get started! here is it enjoy ! I called it git by Example! 

We discuss git by example, we explain all what you need to get started and 15 minutes you have are up and running. Today’s command is git clone, git add, git push.

If you have all requirements (Git command line, github account) you can jump to the actual work

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.
