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.

Hello folks!


A task of handling hashtags has arisen in the context of data analysis from Twitter. It was needed to take hashtag and split it into separate words. The task seemed primitive, but it turned out, I underestimated it. I had to try several algorithms until I found that.

This article could be considered as a kind of chronology of completing the task with the analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of each used algorithms. So if you are interested in this topic, please make yourself comfortable here.

It should be noted that the task of breaking large text without spaces is very common in NLP. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes "neuro", language "linguistic" and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience "programming" and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.

imageThe psychological deformation is a disputable issue in any profession, because different people go through it in different ways. However, the overall tendency can be separated out, and perhaps, it is a time when we can say that the programmers have their own special psychological portrait that is conditional on their professional activities.

I often faced a similar opinion, and I did not attach great significance to it, but when a female staff of our organization congratulated the programmers on February 23rd (a former soviet military holiday), calling them "cosmic forces", I have decided to arrange some emphasis on this issue, because one of my occupations directly linked with psychoanalysis.

A weather forecasting as predicting of something is a complex computer task that has difficulties to follow the description of mathematical models. However, the forecasting of weather conditions that are narrowed to a particular location, region, city or a square kilometer, as the prediction of risks for the population and infrastructure is an entirely different type of task. In order to solve it, the IBM has created a system of hyperlocal forecasting that is the Deep Thunder.
