Happy #programmers day

Happy programmer’s day to every programmer who said:

– I convert coffee into code
– It is working on my machine
– I will fix that later
– It’s not a bug, it’s a feature
– That’s weird
– How is that possible?
– I cannot repair your computer
– I am not a hacker

In case you don’t know about it :p

The Day of the Programmer is an international professional day that is celebrated on the 256th (hexadecimal 100th, or the 28th) day of each year (September 13 during common years and on September 12 in leap years). It is officially recognized in Russia.

The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with a byte, a value well known to programmers. 256 is also the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.

To know more, have a look a here.

Happy programmer’s day again. Cheers!

GitHub is now free for all developer teams


Popular software collaboration and hosting platform GitHub has made some of its core premium features free for everyone. The Microsoft-owned company said yesterday that an organization can now make private repositories for development without paying any fees.

Teams that want more advanced features like code owners or enterprise features like SAML support will still have to upgrade to a paid plan, but those now start at $4 per month and user for the Teams plans instead of the previous $9, with the Enterprise plan starting at $21 per month and user.

Apart from private repository access, a team can also get 2,000 GitHub action minutes/month at no cost. Actions is GitHub’s automation tool offering which lets applications orchestrate any workflow based on an event — like sending a notification. So, the free tier offering is ideal for small-scale projects.

Previously on Last February, Github announced unlimited private repositories for all types of users.

This release is also be available on Android tablets with “limited support” and a fully optimized tablet experience will be available on both iPadOS and Android soon.

Standalone version user’s don’t panic, Microsoft is still planning to keep the individual Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps available but this combined app is clearly where most of the new mobile-focused features will appear in the foreseeable release.

The tool currently indexes about 6 million tables.

The most commonly searched for datasets include “education,” “weather,” “cancer,” “crime,” “soccer,” and “dogs”.

Word, Excel and PowerPoint in one app!

Microsoft has officially announced to publicly test a new version of the Office app that combines World, Excel and the PowerPoint app at the Ignite conference in Florida. This app will be available for both Android and iOS.

Google brings new privacy controls for mobile users

Google launched Incognito Mode for Maps,YouTube and Google Assistant

Returning to Google I / O in May, we saw that Maps and Search are the next two Android apps to add Incognito mode. Google now officially rolls it out so that you can keep your activity off your Google account and search for information. The functionality will be available from within the app’s profile menu.

Google Maps Incognito mode

Google Maps Incognito mode first introduced at its Google I / O developer conference earlier this year in May.

The incognito mode of Google Maps is based on the similarly named feature found in all modern browsers and present in Chrome since its release back in 2008.

This enables users of Google Maps to search and access locations without adding this information to their history with Google Account.

Google says Google Maps incognito mode will begin rolling out this month on Android, with iOS coming soon. The functionality is not currently available for the internet version of Google Maps.

YouTube history auto-delete

And since we’re on YouTube, there’s also a new feature for Google to include. Google previously introduced this feature in May when it was added to Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Account (which allowed users to remove past use of the app).

Convert currentTimeMillis to a datetime in JAVA(Spring Boot)

Spring Boot

In this tutorial I’ll show how to save Time Stamp in Database in currentTimeMillis and retrieve in Spring Boot

Want precise time for some purpose? Normally, we can save Time Stamp in Database but what if the data need to be converted into several formats?

Let’s say we need to save “2019-6-27 00:59:59” and then convert it to several formats like ’27/2019/6 00:59:59′ and ’20-JUN-1990 08:03:00′. Though “2019-6-27 00:59:59” can be converted but that’s a little bit tough. The ideal solution is to save the data in millisecond format. In millisecond format “2019-6-27 00:59:59” would be “1564167599000”

I assume you already have the datetime picker data in controller, here’s the conversion code:

String expireTime = model.attribute; //your model attribute or request parameter name
Date date = formatter.parse(expireTime);
Timestamp timestamp = new Timestamp(date.getTime());
String expireTime2 = String.valueOf(timestamp.getTime());
//That's it! We've converted '2019-6-27 00:59:59' to '1564167599000'
//Add your save logic

Now the reading part. User can’t read ‘1564167599000’, right? Let’s convert this to readable format:

String convertedExpireTime = "1564167599000";
//Create a calendar instance
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
int mYear = calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR);
int mMonth = calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH);
int mDay = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
int mHour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
int mMin = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
int mSec = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);
String readableFormat = mYear + "-" + mMonth + "-" + mDay + " " + mHour + ":"+ mMin + ":"+ mSec; // The value is now converted to 2019-6-27 0:59:59
//Add some logic

That’s all! We’re done!

If you’ve any confusion please let me know 🙂

Github free users can avail unlimited private repositories now!

GitHub is by far the most popular way to share code. That said, one weakness of the platform is that it limits who can create private repositories – that is, software projects that aren’t visible to the broader public, and are shared only with a handful of pre-defined collaborators – to paying users.

Days are over now! Yay!

No you can create unlimited free private repositories.
