If you are a Java developer coming to Kotlin, you might have wondered how to use a language construct that is similar to the try-with-resource statement in Java to automatically close Autocloseable/Closeable resources for you.

Luckily, Kotlin provides the inline extension function use() that provides similar functionality to the …

Introduction

In Java, a common way to express a type that is a combination of two or more types is to just create an interface that extends the other types. The problem with this approach is that your code might be littered with interface declarations, polluting your code and namespace.

## Introduction ## In Android development, the current recommended library for Dependency Injection is Hilt. The most obvious benefits of using Hilt are reduced boilerplate code and lifecycle-aware components(*and their associated annotations*). Hilt is a great library, but it is not perfect. Hilt is built on top of Dagger 2, so the terminologies and concepts are hard to understand for developers who did not use Dagger before being introduced to Hilt. This tutorial introduces Dagger 2 in its original form using Kotlin to make it easy for Kotlin-only developers to follow. The main feature that we are going to look …

## Introduction ## In Java 8, `@Repeatable` was introduced and this is the recommended way to create repeating annotations. We still have to create a holder Annotation(*annotation that holds an array of other annotations*), but we no longer have to declare the holder Annotation at the callsite.

How to create your own custom Annotations. 2. How to create repeatable Annotations. ## Prerequisite Knowledge ## 1. Basic Java 2. …

I need an end user license agreement for code shared amongst my home projects with other developers. The EULA needs to include a "pay to the order of x" clause, and also needs to include the ability for me to utilze the code at multiple companies that I could participate in. I suspect the EULA may need to be fairly complete, and preclude explicitly illicit usage. If we could have a discussion that would be cool. I was learning about EULA's in college but haven't made one for real life yet.

I'm not very good at Python as you can tell from my earlier posts. I'm trying to write a payroll program that gets the input from the user of how many hours worked and the hourly rate and calculates the total wages for the week. It also has to figure over-time-hours by paying anything over 40 hours time-and-a-half(* 1.5). I want to set it up into four functions though. So, the first function would ask for the hours and pay rate. The second would calculate the regular hours and overtime hours. The third would calculate regular pay and overtime pay …

## Introduction ## Before Java 8, methods had to throw an exception or return `null`, with neither of which approaches were perfect. Optional, OptionalInt, OptionalLong, and OptionalDouble were introduced in Java 8 to represent values that might possibly be `null`. Optionals have two internal states, **empty** or **present**. An Optional is empty if the underlying reference is `null`. An Optional is present when the underlying reference is not null. Although there are many ways to use Optionals, chaining optionals usually provides for writing clear and concise code, especially when complex filtering is required. ## Goals ## At the end of …

# Comparing two videos side by side I have been creating walk-through videos on the cheap by just wandering through an area with my little Sony camera. Lacking a steady-cam I just try to hold the camera as steady as possible. Fortunately, with the proper (free) tools I can still end up with a reasonable result. It's nice to be able to compare before and after videos so I'll describe the application I put together, and the tools I used to build it. First the tools (again, all free) 1. ffplay (included with ffmpeg version 4.2.3) [download](https://ffmpeg.org/download.html) 2. ffprobe (included …

Hi DW. I'm a bit confused and lost on how this App is working called Ha Tunnel Plus (You can check it on Playstore, and have a look on YouTube for the configuration file). Basically it somehow uses the internet connection of the server, it tunnels it to your Android device and you can be connected to the internet without having data on your mobile network sim card, but you can use internet just like you would normally do except that this is not limited on how much data you as a user is using. I tried playing around with …

Hi, I'm an jQuery/Angular Developer last 5 years, and now I've planned move to ReactJS. I'm learning ReactJS by my own, as comparing the similar stuff what I did in jQuery (or Angular). My plan is, just to make a Login-Logout App, with ReactJS front-end and CodeIgniter - MySQL are the backend and database, respectively. Also I know what is CORS, and I'm pretty clear about the REST concepts. Let me explain my react app in brief. My App component, calls an API via fetch, and upon the response which tells either session is set (as user is logged in) …

I am trying to understand Boyer Moore algorithm & KMP algorithm (Knuth Morris Pratt)? I tried some places like GeeksForGeeks, TutorialsPoint etc. But I have still some doubts. If you guys have some resources or videos where these algorithms are explained in somewhat simple terms, please share them. First I am trying to understand the logic behind these algorithms clearly. Then I will go to code implementation.
