As a fan of the board games, I started to adapt the Eldritch Horror to make it available for PC and Android. In my blog, I will shortly describe the architecture, design patterns and of course, the obstacles I run into while developing this game. It was implemented in Java using LibGDX framework. It is far from being finished as it contains a lot of components. But the core of the game is done. So, let me share with you what you should (not) do when you decided on going on the same journey...

In this blog, I would like to introduce to you one of my latest hobbies – Internet of Things (IoT). We will go through a short intro and then jump directly into creating some cool "things" connected to the internet. This tutorial will help you create two simple (yet very useful) creations that could make your life easier. And of course, as I’m a Cloud Specialist, we will try to "touch" the Cloud in the second guide :). Dig in.

In managerial circles, the activity covered by the term 'exploratory testing' has gathered something of a bad reputation. From the perspective of the uninitiated, it might seem as just random clicking and typing until something goes wrong and we can create a bug report. However, this is not the case at all.

In the previous blog, I showed you how to connect Angular application with Spring back end, also with Spring Security and JWT. In this blog, I would like to show how to use Angular’s PrimeNG UI component library with Spring back end. Concretely, I will focus on the datatable lazy load filtering and pagination features.

In my previous blog, I focused on showing the benefits and basics of Angular 2 in combination with a PrimeNG UI component library. However, majority of applications are not formed only by the front-end part (Angular 2 in this case), but also have their complex business logic, data storage and more. In my case, I decided to show the back-end using Spring framework; specifically, SpringBoot as a convention over the configuration support.

Have you ever wondered how to replicate a S3 object encrypted with KMS from one S3 bucket to a different one in a different account and region without losing encryption at REST? Since this feature is not yet supported by Amazon AWS, I proposed a solution how to accomplish this task.

It caught my ear that not everyone knows what it requires to write good documentation. Well, let me tell you. There are many principles on how to create sentences, paragraphs, or lists, how to write instructions or create screen captures. However, I do not want to talk about such details. In this article, I want to describe the main process. Here is a glimpse on a document writer’s job.

In March, Bratislava held (for the second time already) a nice conference dedicated to Python programming language - PyCon (link). You may ask yourself why would a member of the Cloud team go to a developers' conference? Well, I would answer that Python is not just a programming language, it’s more like a Swiss knife. Let me explain to you why I think so, and after you read my blog, you can decide whether I’m right or wrong.

Bol by som rád, aby sa v rámci Slovenska zdieľali informácie o skúsenostiach s cloudovými technológiami. Ja sám by som sa chcel učiť, keďže sa nepovažujem za toho najmúdrejšieho. Ak som, tak je to smutné (smiech).

In my free time I tried to make a simple game in java framework Slick2D, which is an easy to use set of tools and utilities wrapped around Lightweight Java Game Library (LWJGL) OpenGL bindings to make 2D Java game development easier. There are not many tutorials for developing games in Slick2D, but the source code is well documented and there are lots of runnable test cases in this library.

I work for Davinci on the Skydoo project where the business rules are implemented in Groovy, which is an object oriented, dynamic and scripting Java platform language. I got a task to write rules in DSL (Domain specific language) MVEL for a new project. I went through many pages about the MVEL language and most of them were about the rules platform named Drools, so I dived in.

"V originálnych stanovách sa píše, že ide o stretnutie, na ktorom sa diskutuje o technológiách, zdieľajú sa skúsenosti a má sa piť pivo, jesť pizza a zabávať sa!", hovorí v rozhovore Laďo Božek, iniciátor žilinskej JUGZY.

I am programming a mid-office application with the GWT 2.5.0 front end. I wanted to improve the UX and came to the conclusion that drag & drop is the best way how to match two different data lists together (with different size, attributes, limitations, specifics and behavior). But GWT 2.5.0. does not support the drag & drop function.

Najskôr zopár viet o mne. Volám sa Lucia Harušťáková a nikdy som nemyslela, že budem pracovať v IT firme. Zhodou okolností však pôsobím už deviaty mesiac v Davinci na pozícii HR Generalist. 9 mesiacov je relatívne dosť dlhý čas na to, aby si človek urobil názor a začal porovnávať.
