This article opens a series of articles, in case, if it will be found interesting, because the first rule of public speaking says: tell people that, what they are interested in!

If you have never experienced public speaking or are afraid to do it – here is “under the cut”. If you consider yourself an experienced speaker, the second article of this series will be for you.

Today’s article is going to be more dedicated to the speech, and less to its contents. If the future comments show, that the composition of the speech needs to be explained (the problem statement -> the solution -> the selection process -> the chosen solution -> the result), or the basics of public speaking (avoid using “hum and haw”, junk words and finishing phrases with non-normative interjections) – I’ll do it next time.

In 1974, Kodak purchased the small nuclear reactor, which was placed in an underground bunker in the industrial complex of Kodak Park in Rochester, New York. A neutron flux multiplier was used for the experiments in the neutron photography that lasted until 2007.

The neutron source was a californium-252, the flow multipliers were plates with uranium, and the highly enriched uranium was accumulated as the waste in the laboratory. According to the experts, it was a unique device for the U.S. industrial sector. There are about 50 such multipliers with californium in the world, and almost all of them are in Russia. Kodak the only company that had this multiplier in USA.

imageMy dear UMumble users! I must confess to you that I am a very happy man, but the last 16 years of my 32, I am watching an escalating picture of the struggle between a society and the absurdity of being. The fact is that many of my friends work in large companies, where they are ruthlessly oppressed by an office samsara. In my case I have never had a tight schedule and the strict corporate machine on my back; therefore, I lift up praises to God every day and night. Being far away from these problems I am engaged in science at the Research Institute of System Technology (and I have my own IT business, which helps me to make money for living). Using this miracle system analysis, I will try to summarize everything I know on the topic in the article.

Have you heard that in some companies employees are allowed working 20% of their time on the personal projects? It turns out that there is the company that rendered this principle to the absolute. Let’s imagine that you can work 20% out of 100% of the working time on any project that you want. There are no managers, departments and chiefs. The company structure is totally flat, and all employees are equal and voluntary grouping by interests. Only the projects that attract more people have chance to survive.

Over a year ago one user of StackOverflow programming site asked for help concerning this issue. Namely, they have the employee with the last name Null at the firm. The problem is that because of his name falls a corporate search application, if the employee’s name will be used as search query (it has happened very often recently). Error:

<soapenv:Fault>
<faultcode>soapenv:Server.userException</faultcode>
<faultstring>coldfusion.xml.rpc.CFCInvocationException: [coldfusion.runtime.MissingArgumentException : The SEARCHSTRING parameter to the getFacultyNames function is required but was not passed in.]</faultstring>

I have little experience (summarily I have been working as a programmer nearly for 16 months), nevertheless, I would like to give some tips to myself in the past, or in other words, to those who are studding now at the university and planning to become a software developer. I do not have a claim on wisdom or experience on no account. While thinking a little, I understand that all these tips are very actual for me more than ever too. I published the first note in my blog last year, and now I am publishing here the list expanded with tips of the readers of this blog.

All tips are independent and their order does not matter.

There is an informal verb "forecast", which means to model different scenarios and consequences in the head. Today, I want to talk about the ability to forecast moves, and why it is the most important ability in the life.

For a start is a small introduction. Have you ever thought about why so many famous people like chess? Why did Sergei Galitsky, a billionaire build a retail chain “Magnit" from the scratch? Talking about important things for a novice businessman, in the first place he put the logic (by the way, Sergei is a good chess player). Why is Fritz Morgen, a blogger talking about the same logic? Also, an outstanding businessman, Dmitriy Potapenko told us about how he was able to build his retail chains and restaurants. He proposes us to use the flow chart of algorithms of the eighth grade for the modeling of business processes.

This cyberplatform is able to carry up to 9 grams of useful load.

Let’s take a look at a caterpillar. At some point it turns into a butterfly. Here is a simple question, namely is it possible to give it the synthetic components that allow building a cyborg-insect? Answer would be yes it is. Michel Maharbiz, associate professor did it.

The recent Visual Studio 11 Beta version has a new and major built-in feature of the future C # 5 - asynchronous programming using async/await. In this article I would like to structure and examine this quite interesting new tool and share the results with you.

Why is it needed?


C# is actively developing language. Each its version has interesting features that really simplify the writing quality of understandable code. For example, Linq considerably simplified the writing of filters for collections and sql queries in the code. Now the turn came for asynchrony.
