Anyone working with Android development will come across this utility - adb - at one point of time during their development cycle. Android Debug Bridge, acronym-ed as adb is a powerful command line based utility to assist developers during Android app development. While the utility might have been conceived as a debugging utility by Google Engineers, it has set of innovative use cases which could go way beyond as just "debugging" tool.
A few months back, I added shiny new Samsung Galaxy S9+ to my gadget list. [Yaay! :D] While Samsung flagships are known for their build quality, looks, camera, display et cetera, Samsung is notorious for adding unnecessary bloatware on their phones. One of such bloatwares that comes pre-installed is their virtual assistant Bixby and its related services. Hell, they even added a physical button for the same.
Chatbots are the next big thing in the hot Artificial Intelligence market.
For the uninitiated, chatbots are artificial intelligence powered (or rule based) computer programs that can mimic human behavior while interacting with actual humans. In simpler words, chatbots are smart programs that can talk to a human in humanly way.
I had a free weekend so I decided to develop such chatbot.
Recently, I was exploring various logging mechanism available in Java and I came across this topic - Aspectj.
I found the AOP - Aspect Oriented Programming approach quite unique (and complex to use as well! :P)
As I learned basics of Aspectj step by step, I kept taking notes of whatever I've grasped. Sharing it here.
During my schooldays, I had a classmate. Let's call him/her X. We always used to compete fiercely for 1st rank in school exams.
Fast forward school. Now in college. 3 years zoomed off, I didn't hear anything about X.
As humans, we tend to be interested in stories of our old rivals. I'm no different. I wanted to know how X has been doing in college.
In India, exam results are often indication of one's brilliance and success. Though, I thoroughly disagree with that notion, I started to wonder, is there any way I could get results of X? It could be a good weekend project.
