GoT seeders vs HBO

in work

Hello everyone!

Well, the title of the blog post may not sound technical but it’s actually a technical post. “Game of Thrones - S8E01” will be out tomorrow and so will be torrent seeders for pirating its episodes. If you have ever tried to seed HBO’s content (or any other television network) on your servers, you must remember getting messages about abuse from your server provider. Do you actually understand how it works ? Continue reading

Hello there!

Since the time I started using Macbook, I have been sadly away from KDE. That’s around 3 years from now. I have gained skills from contributing to KDE which I could have never achieved otherwise.

After long time, I decided to try out kde-connect on macOS. I knew it won’t work properly on macOS because of deep coupling with linux specific stuff but still I wanted to give it a try.

Hello everyone,

Guess what ? Here’s much awaited(I hope so) technical post.

At Leetcode we conduct weekly contests during which we get week’s peak traffic. I had mentioned earlier in one of my blogpost about how one contest went wrong.

Hello everyone,

Hello everyone!

I scraped the idea of staying for longer duration at my friend’s place in Gurgoan since I wasn’t able to work properly from there. But I decided to attend tech meetups in Delhi on weekends. This weekend I planned to attend two events which were related to kubernetes and networking.

Hello everyone!

If you have read my last blog post, you know I attended WWC meetup related to Algo/DS and from there, I came back to my friend’s place at around 3AM. Next morning, there was hackathon in Zomato in which I got myself registered with my friend’s team. We hadn’t even thought about the idea which we were going to build the very next day. I was quite exited about the hackathon and couldn’t wrap around my head around it. I was constantly thinking what should we build and just couldn’t get any sleep. I started by trying to understand company’s business model. I learnt this skill while working in Leetcode, to not only think about the technical part but also think how those developments will affect the business. I researched about Foursquare, Yelp etc and I came up with few ideas.

Welcome readers!

Since you know I’m in Delhi around this time, I decided to go to meetups happening around here. I checked all the gatherings on meetups.com and decided to attend ones which I was interested in.

One of them was “DS/Algo group” organised by WWC which aligns with my interests quite nicely. Since it was just 5km away from me, I drove to that place.

Welcome readers!

Wait, what are you saying ? You mean, “I” promised that I’ll blog every week ? Come on, I don’t remember promising anything like that. Okay, I might have said that while I was in sleep.

(/me hides under the table)

Well, lot of things have changed since the last time I blogged. My todo list is increasing at tremendous rate compared to its burning rate. Putting other things aside from that list, there’s long list of blogs-to-be-written.

Anyway, let’s talk about this blog post.

Hello everyone,

As I promised that I’ll be writing blogpost every weekend after joining Leetcode for full time position, so here I go.

This week I worked on finishing up a major feature i.e. Improving filter’s functionality. It’s live right now. You can check it out on leetcode.

Leetcode’s frontend is built upon ReactJs. I wrote component logic for the filter functionality and Hercy, my colleague, connected all the dots and improved its UI. Now state of all the filters is saved in the URL itself. So, user can share or bookmark the URL to get the same state of the filter.
