This is a story of Dev and Opher. Dev is a software developer who works for an ABC consultancy. He works on new products, new features, security updates, and bug fixes. He wants to provide customers with exciting products as soon as possible. So, Dev starts working on the requirements and is looking forward to the deployment of his initial requirements. After a few weeks, his first batch of code is deployed which leads to problems at the production, tools have crashed. Production teams have gone idle, everything is in chaos. Stakeholders are emailing to Dev about why did the deployment fail. After some analysis, Dev realized the environment for production and development is a lot different and so he had messed up.

One of the most favorite dishes from my native place is the Mangalorean style kababs, more of a fried chicken than to the contemporary roasted kababs. These kababs are prepared usually as a side for Biryani, Ghee rice, or simple dal rice too. Among the Mangalore - Udupi households most of the festive meals are incomplete without these in the menu.

The iPhone has changed a lot since it first launched in 2007, but that does not mean it's easy to tell one iPhone from another. Those of you who do not pay strict attention to every Apple event won't be able to see the nuanced differences between the 25 different iPhone models that have debuted since 2007. You can find your iPhone model number by looking at the small text on the back of the iPhone. There should be something that says "Model AXXXX." Match that to the online to find out which iPhone model you own.

Software as a service

Last issue dated September 15, 2020 we started with the cloud computing article, so in continuation of the series, we will be taking about software-as-a-service (SaaS) in this issue and we will be talking about other use cases of cloud computing in the upcoming articles. So what is SaaS? In laymen terms, SaaS is a software delivery model, where a lease or a license fee is charged to consumers per month and a non-contractor, normally the software provider, makes the program over the Internet accessible. As well as infrastructure-as-service (Iaas) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS), SaaS is one of the major commercial implementations of cloud computing. In SaaS the user depends on the software provider to allow access to the application over the website, hosting and managing on his own computer instead of buying a hard copy of an app and downloading it on a local server. When a customer buys a SaaS-software tool, it is normally the provider who hosts and promotes access to the program, but this is not the only way. There are also application service providers (ASPs) which benefit from data center management and host applications for their own customer networks.

As we have entered a new semester, though not in great numbers I see new students settling in and I can’t help but remember my time. I look at these new skeptical faces and I know exactly what they are feeling. Looking at them takes me back to my time and all these feelings gush back as I sit here reminiscing those bittersweet days.

Life without the internet

The only reason to get these thoughts as I don’t have the internet at home tonight, I can vividly remember growing up in Mumbai, India playing cricket outside, watching TV with my parents, or spending hours playing Beyblade. That felt normal, as a child. Then I got my first phone with internet during my undergraduate days and things began to change.

Sometimes, there are few things right in front of your eyes, you look at it every day or you pass by it every day and that thing remains right there not having moved an inch and waiting for you, every day! For example, for few people it can be a statute on their way to work, for others, it can be a tree, whereas for few it can be as simple as a pen holder on their desk. These little things make our lives and I am of the opinion that we don’t appreciate it enough. We often turn oblivious to such constant things around us but today, I want to talk about my constant throughout, my window frame.

While traveling during vacation one of the interesting dishes that I came around is Madras chicken curry. Madras chicken curry has a very fascinating history and is a typical yellow curry, among my favorite variants. Madras chicken curry was born and popular with British colonizers and merchants in the 1600s in southern India but in reality, the term "Madras chicken curry" only happened when in the 1970s it was introduced to the British restaurants. Over the years, many different forms have been created and envisioned with the resulting meal traditionally composed of a deep red, rich, and spicy sauce. The specialty of this dish is that includes a lot of vegetables even though being a chicken dish.
