In this blog we’ll explore the internals of how Git works. Having some behind-the-scenes working knowledge of Git will help you understand why Git is so much faster than traditional version control systems. Git also helps you recover data from unexpected crash/ delete scenarios.
For a developer, it is quite useful to understand the design principles of Git and see how it manages both speed of access (traversing to previous commits) and small disk space for repository. Continue reading →
Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the hottest technologies across the globe nowadays. There are a number of IoT products and devices that are available in the market.
At the end of this blog, you will have a high-level idea of how IoT systems work. To understand, we will create an iOS demo app which will send/receive data from an IoT compatible device with the help of Arduino.
We will cover the following points:
- Introduction to IoT
- Arduino Overview
- iOS demo App to understand the end-to-end flow

One of the best practices in iOS development is to be able to manage multiple environments during development of a project. Many a time we might have to jump between DEV, QA, STAGE, and Production environments. As the owner of a product, clients request to have both development version of the app and production version of the app i.e. App store released version of the app on the same device.
If you have ever faced or might face this situation, then you need a custom build scheme. Continue reading →
